Watermatters stopped doing business with Berkey in early 2023 for reasons that are explained here. We are awaiting the launch of the next generation of stainless steel gravity water filter housings (anticipated by late Spring 2024) that will replace Berkey water filter systems.

NEW! Coldstream FTO Plus ceramic replacement filters for Berkeys
Watermatters now supplies Coldstream FTO Plus ceramic gravity filters which fit in existing Berkey systems. These replacement filters are also fluoride reduction filters. They do the work of both the Black Berkey elements and Berkey's PF-2 fluoride elements, combined in a single filter. Test results for the FTO Plus ceramic water filters demonstrate that they provide sustained protection from chlorine, chloramine, VOCs, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, bacteria, parasite cysts, PFAS, micro-plastics, and fluoride. The FTO+ ceramic filters are a superior product to the Berkey water filters.
NEW! Portable gravity water filters
Watermatters is now stocking two new portable gravity filters:
Water Pitcher Filter by ProOne - best choice of pitcher filter for protection from most chemical and microbiological contaminants including chlorine and fluoride. - comes with a cleanable ceramic cartridge.
Scout II Travel Filter by ProOne - compact filter for travel and emergency conditions with a cleanable ceramic filter that is effective against a broad range of chemical and microbiological contaminants.
Watermatters is not a fan of 3-letter government agencies such as the EPA. However, we are also not sympathetic with Berkey’s dilemma, which includes other legal challenges that have been eclipsed by the fanfare about the EPA Stop Sale/Pesticide issue. The owner of Berkey has emerged from concealment to portray Berkey as a victim...an all-too-common tactic that is deflecting attention away from Berkey’s real shortcomings.
