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 nitrates, 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.

Questions and Answers

I’m thinking about buying a Berkey Light Water Filter since I have very hard water where I live. Will this filter help remove the minerals and soften the water?

No, the Black Berkey filters will not remove the minerals from your water. This is actually beneficial as it is not a good idea to drink de-mineralised water over the long term, reverse osmosis will remove the minerals but the water is then de-mineralised. For a detailed comparison of Berkey purification and reverse osmosis please see: Reverse Osmosis/Distillation
Question from: Dave, June 26 2014

Thank you for the Berkey water filter. I just wanted to ask about the filters. There is a small chip on the corner of one of them. Will this affect the function?

No this won't effect the functioning or the lifespan of the filter, it's quite common and happens during the production process. The Black Berkey filters are about twice as thick as standard gravity filter elements and have a built in redundancy. If the filters have passed the red food color test then you can be assured that they're working properly.
Question from: Adam, May 23 2014

I have a Berkey Light and wish to use it to filter water from a stream. I would like to pre-filter the water to get out any larger particles, little animals etc. if there are any, just to keep the Berkey filters as clean as possible. Do you have any equipment for this or advice on what I should use?

Yes, that's a very good idea to pre-filter larger particles etc. I would suggest setting up 2 pails one above the other, drilling small holes in the top one and then partly filling it with clean sand. To prevent sand leaking through the holes you may need to put in a fine wire mesh on the bottom as well. Then fill it with the stream water and then put the sand filtered water through the Berkey. If a bit of sand were to get into the upper chamber of the Berkey that's not a problem as it will sink to the bottom anyways. Alternatively you could also pre-filter with a piece of cheesecloth, although I would recommend the sand method.
