I have a water treatment system for my summer place that takes care of the iron and manganese. I did not add the carbon filter system that would take care of the sulfur as it was $2,500 more. Even untreated supposedly the water is potable. We just remove the iron and manganese so it does not crud up the fixtures and to reduce the smell. The sulfur smell quickly dissipates and it does not crud up the fixtures so for the time being we are ignoring it.

I was thinking of adding just a filter to just my kitchen faucet.

Do you have something that would remove the sulfur and attach with a diverter to the faucet?

The Black Berkey Elements do not remove ionic minerals from the water - it does however remove sedimentary minerals. In order to reduce the heavy metals, Black Berkey elements use several types of media in the formulation that have a specific affinity for heavy metals. They do not include however, any media in the formulation that would remove beneficial minerals. Because the media formulation does not have an affinity for beneficial minerals such as calcium and magnesium, these minerals pass right on through the elements.

The Black Berkey elements will remove the sulfur (rotten egg) smell from water, as well as rust. Bear in mind though, the elements will probably turn red (rust) colored. This is OK. The user will probably have to clean them more often than normal, this is expected.

In relation to a faucet system, the Berkey systems are all Gravity fed systems, they will not attach to a faucet system that uses pressure.

Thank you very much taking the time and effort to provide your responsive detailed and informative information. To my mind, good customer (or potential customer) service such as yours is an important factor in any purchase decision.
