The Berkey manufacturer has filed a lawsuit against the EPA seeking to stop it's unjustified persecution of Berkey Water Filters based on the EPA’s decision this year to treat Berkey Water Filters as though they are pesticides, rather than water filters. The EPA has already ordered the closure of Berkey's largest warehouse. Please see our blog post for the details.

The Berkey Light system is designed for use during travel, outdoor activities and during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

The Berkey Light water purification system may be ordered with your choice of one discounted accessory. For a description of the various accessories see:PF-2 Fluoride/Arsenic Filters, Berkey Replacement Parts, or Berkey Primer.

The Berkey Light system does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants. As the system purifies water, it produces the delightful and relaxing sound of falling raindrops.

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 revolutionary Berkey Light™ self-sterilizing and cleanable purification elements purify water by removing or reducing viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and by extracting harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce nitrites, sediment and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury (See which contaminants are eliminated by the Black Berkey Filters). So powerful, this system is able to remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Constructed of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non BPA copolyester; the system comes complete with two or four purification elements, a base and utilizes the latest technological advances. The system 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 purification elements the system will purify up to 15.1 liters per hour. This system can be expanded to use four Black Berkey purification elements 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.
