System comes with your choice of either 2 or 4 Black Berkey purification filters.
This system can hold up to 4 Black filters and 4 PF-2 fluoride filters (optional)
Optional: Choose one of the following items at up to 50% off the MSRP. (Make selection above)
Constructed of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non BPA copolyester; the system comes complete with two purification elements, a base and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.75 gallons and stands 26.5" tall when used with the included base, and is 9" in diameter. The system stands 21" when used without the base. Configured with two Black Berkey purification elements the system can purify over 4 gallons per hour. When used with 4 black filters, the system can purify up to 8 gallons per hour.
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.
Black Berkey Purification Elements
Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, we tested the Black Berkey purification elements with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction - the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.
Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. What's more, the unique Black Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing.
The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.

My family is SO impressed with the water quality of our new Berkey Light! Our city water is so bad and smells awful too. We have been buying bottled water for years. Using the city water from our tap with the added fluoride filters - our drinking/cooking water is now even better tasting than the bottled "Spring Water" we use to buy. Thank you Berkey!!

We have the worst tap water! We have had to buy water for years - FINALLY Great Water thanks to Berkey! We love the Berkey Light. Well worth the value.
The Grocery bill will most definitely be less. Wish I had gotten it sooner.

Very pleased with quality of the water. Users must remember to use water in lower chamber to a low level. The top chamber needs to be filled to top so as to expose all of the filters to the water.

I have wanted a Berkey water filter for a long time. I just recently bought one and love it! The water tastes amazing. I must say that it took a while for the filters to get primed. The directions were a bit confusing (even for my husband) and so it took multiple tries, but now that they are primed they are great. Be patient and you will get a very superior product at a decent price. I give Berkey 5 stars out of 5

I am so pleased. I love my unit!!!!I have been paying for water delivery for at least 10 years...I paid more than 30$ a month for 10 years at $3600, its hard to fathom . I never run out of goood fresh filtered water now and I pay in 10 years not even 10% for my Berkey yay. I guess we live and learn :)..I was so careless and wasteful...Thank you so much Berkey!!!!

Everyone is concerned with Fluoride since the Harvard study was released. When Fluoride can be removed for $231 sales will go through the roof.

I just got my Berkey light system 3 days ago. We got it put together quickly & began using it. I bought the additional Flouride filters as that is a concern for me. We get water from the city I live in and it always has a slight taste of chlorine. I must say this is the best tasting water I have had since I was a kid. I can actually tell a HUGE difference. It is better than most bottled water we have tried. We had been using a Brita pitcher for the past 2 years, but honestly, I couldn't tell a lot of difference with it. I take care of my 85 year old mother, and she always used to make a bad "face" when she drank the water, even from the Brita. She didn't make her face with water from the Berkey, so I know she likes it better. We used it this morning to make coffee. I can't believe the difference in taste. I am so surprised that the coffee is that much better! I can wait to use it for tea and lemonade now. There are a few downsides, such as: the flimsy top, and the unit doesn't cool the water, but the great tasting water more than compensates for the unit design. I didn't really want a stainless steel unit because I like being able to see the water levels. Overall, for the money, I personally don't think you can find a better purification system!

I have never liked plain water, not even the bottle kind. But now i can't get enough, i crave it, it is so refreshing. I will be saving up to buy a full system for my daughter and her family. I got the black filters with the fluoride filters. I just wish i had done this sooner, i could have been drinking good clean water all this time. And i don't have to haul in all those jugs anymore.
LOVE MY BERKEY
