The Berkey Light water filter will purify your home’s treated tap water as well as untreated water from such sources as lakes, brooks, ponds and water sources in foreign countries, where the local water supply may be compromised or regulations may not be adhered to. The Berkey Light is the ideal water filter for all outside activities and is definitely a must in inhospitable environments where electricity or clean drinking water may not be at hand.
The Berkey Light assembles in minutes without tools, electricity, water pressure, or plumbing.
The Berkey Light is also easy to operate, clean, and maintain.
The Berkey Light water filter system eliminates pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely as well as removing toxic chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and all manner of VOCs, organic solvents and trihalomethanes. In independent testing the Black Berkey filters have also been found to reduce nitrites and toxic minerals among others: lead, mercury and aluminum (See a detailed list of which contaminants are eliminated by the Black Berkey Filters). Besides this the Berkey Light water filter leaves undisturbed and intact the beneficial minerals your body requires.
The Berkey Light water filter does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants. Manufactured of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non BPA copolyester; the Berkey Light comes standard with two or four Black Berkey water filters and a base. The Berkey Light stands 53cm. when used without the base (included).
Each durable Black Berkey filter will last for up to 11,350 liters (22,700 liters per set of 2). At 38 liters per week, this is equivalent to 600 weeks. That's more than 11.5 years of clean water!
Configured with two Black Berkey water filters the system will purify up to 15.1 liters per hour. The Berkey Light can be expanded to use four Black Berkey water filters and is then capable of purifying up to 30.2 liters per hour.*
*Flow rates are calculated with upper chamber full to top. The flow rate decreases as the water level declines. As it is impractical to keep the upper chamber completely full at all times, the flow rates are in practice less than the stated optimal rate.
