About the Stainless Steel Gravity Water Filter
The British Berkfeld® Stainless Steel Gravity Water Filter is a portable unit and needs no plumbing in. It is an ideal way to benefit from filtered water “on tap” especially if you are travelling or living in rented accommodation. It sits on the counter top providing plenty of water for each day and can be refilled at night for the next day’s supply.
The upper container is filled manually with water which then filters down to the lower container passing through the filter candles. This can then be accessed via the tap at the bottom of the unit. The lower tank has a capacity of 10 litres. It takes one hour for 1 litre to pass through the filters. Please allow longer when using for the first time. See video below for a step by step assembly guide.
The Gravity Filter comes with an additional 2 slots to allow you to add more filters which would then double the filtration rate ie it would take 30mins to process 1 litre of water.
The Gravity Water Filter comes with a choice of either standard or heavy metal Doulton® filters:
With Standard Filters
The Gravity Water Filter Standard will remove in excess of 97% of free chlorine, 99.999% of pathogenic organisms such as bacteria: E-coli, cholera, typhoid and cysts: cryptosporidium and giardia. The Super SterasylTM filters will also reduce chemicals - see Filtration tab.
With Heavy Metal Filters
The Gravity Water Filter with Heavy Metal Filters will remove all of the above contaminants plus heavy metals.
Each of the manufacturers of the water purification products we sell has had independent quality control approvals by independent organizations such as NSF International standard 42 and 62 and WRAS approval ensuring that product performance claims are verified to the highest standard.
The filter candles should be replaced every nine months for two people and every six months for four people. The Gravity Water Filter is supplied unassembled with full instructions. The housing measures 20.9cm in diameter and 53cm high and comes with one year guarantee.

Trace Organics Removal
One of the main properties of activated carbon is that it will remove organic compounds. Additionally the activated carbon in our filters has an affinity for hormone based steroids such as oestrogens so should help to remove them to some extent, testing is in it’s infancy so we are currently unable to make an accurate claim to the extent of the removal.
Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH's)
Heavy Metal Filter Candle Super SterasyI
This filter has all the specifications of the Super Sterasyl filter above with added filtration to remove heavy metals. It will remove all heavy metals but with a higher specification for lead. This means that lead takes priority and if there is only a small amount of lead it will also remove other heavy metals.
"We are very pleased with the filter. We have been using a jug filter- but the water still tasted very harsh, and as a result I purchased bottled water for my son, who didn’t like the taste. The water from our new filter tastes pure and sweet, and my son loves it."
Joyce Vernon- Roberts
