Ultra Sterasyl is our best-selling ceramic water filter for gravity water filter systems. Its combination of a microfilter ceramic outer, granular activated carbon, and heavy metal removal media effectively removes a range of contaminants, including bacteria, chlorine, microplastics, trace organics, enhanced organics, pharmaceuticals, and heavy metals such as lead. In addition to working well with British Berkefeld gravity water filters, it’s also compatible with all other gravity-fed water filter systems on the market.

Does the Berkefeld Ultra Sterasyl ceramic replacement cartridge fit in my Berkey?

The ceramic replacement filter fits in the Travel, Big, Royal, Imperial and Crown Berkey.  We recommend using 2 filters in your Travel Berkey, and 4 filters in your Big or Royal Berkey.  Using 4 filters vs 2 will allow your system to filter your water twice as fast and the filters will last twice as long.  You may use 6 in your Imperial and 8 in your Crown system.

What contaminants do the Ultra Sterasyl ceramic gravity filters remove?
The Ultra Sterasyl replacement gravity filters by British Berkefeld are NSF certified. They protect against chlorine, lead, heavy metals, chemicals, PFAS (PFOS & PFOA), pesticides, pharmaceuticals, microplastics, bacteria, and cysts.

Do the Ultra Sterasyl ceramic filters need to be primed?
No. The Ultra Sterasyl filters do not require priming.

How often should the Ultra Sterasyl ceramic filters be replaced?
2 filters lifespan: 3000 Liters (800 Gallons).  This is about 6 months if filtering 16 liters per day and 12 months if filtering 8 liters per day.

Can I use red food colouring to test ceramic gravity filters?
No.

Do British Berkefeld filters also purify water of micro-organisms such as bacteria?
Yes. British Berkefeld has specialized in and perfected the use of ceramic filters for water purification for almost 200 years. Purification refers to the removal of micro-organisms.

How long can I store unused ceramic filters?
As long as they have never been used, you can store unused ceramic Berkefeld filters indefinitely in a clean, dry location. Leave them in their original packaging and inside a ziplock bag.

How often should I clean my Ultra Fluoride ceramic filters?
Cleaning frequency will be determined by your local water conditions. As the white ceramic becomes increasingly discoloured, the flow rate through the filter will diminish. When the flow rate becomes annoyingly slow, remove the cartridges from the housing. Hold each one under cool running water and scrub the discolouration off the surface of the white ceramic.  Use a scotch-brite pad or kitchen brush, something abrasive. Reinstall the cartridges and resume use.  Enjoy!
