Each bottle comes with one filter pre-installed. Replacement filters are available here.
The Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier is the ideal personal protection traveling companion - featuring the IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION SYSTEM. The theory behind this innovation is simple. The bottle's filter is designed to remove and/or dramatically reduce a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries where regulations may be sub-standard at best.
The Berkey Sport Bottle is made of food grade BPA free materials. It can be refilled 640 times using a municipal water source, or 160 times using any other water source before the filter should be replaced. Holds approximately 22oz.
These are the new sytle sport bottles with a larger straw opening. Makes it easier to get filtered water.
The Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier Eliminates or Reduces up to 99.9% of:
The Sport Berkey does not remove fluoride.
The Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier Utilizes: IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION. This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers and engineers. The media within the filter element removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. As the bottle is pressed, the source water is forced through the filter. The quality and volume of media used, determine the rate of adsorption. The flow rate or time of exposure through the filter has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by pollution from industry and agriculture. This exclusive filter element is impregnated with proprietary "absorbing" media that promotes IONIC "absorption" of pollutants within the micro-porous element, such as aluminum, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, and other dangerous heavy metals.
The "Tortuous Path" structure of these pores gives it its unique characteristics. The Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier offers a convenient and portable filtration system using medical grade technology.
Note: If using a source of water that might contain extreme bacteriological or viral contamination, it is recommended that two drops of plain chlorinated bleach or iodine be added to each refill before filtering. This will kill minute pathogens such as viruses. The disinfectant will then be filtered from the water entirely removing its odor, color and taste.
Care and Use
Fill the Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier with water, screw on cap and tighten securely to eliminate leaks. Flush water through filter by pulling down lever, so that straw is exposed, and squeeze water through filter & out the straw. Repeat this flushing process twice before drinking. This removes excess process dust from the filter. After 2 flushes, rinse the bottle & cap. Your filter bottle is now ready for use. Enjoy!
Maintenance and Storage
The Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier has a shelf life of 50 years. When the filter system will not be used for an extended period, flush the unit with a chlorinated solution of 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water. Allow to dry thoroughly with cap removed. Re-assemble and stow. Do not allow filter to freeze, do not place in microwave oven and do not run hot water through the filter.
Note: We also sell the replacement filters for the Sport Berkey Water Bottles.

I am trusting that Berkey removes all of the very caustic chemicals in my water.
I have been diagnosed with too much lead, mercury, and copper in my body from
another filter I was using.
In the future, I am planning on purchasing a home unit. I need to do some homework beforehand.
Until then, thank you for my healthier water!
Sincerely, Nancy Young

I love this water bottle. It's the only thing I will drink water out of anymore, even in restaurants. They'll bring me my glass of 'filtered' water and I pour it right in the bottle! ;)
I am a little sad however, because I didn't do my research well enough and just assumed everything Berkey takes out fluoride..But nope.. That was the whole reason I got it in the first place. :(
Also, The bottle sort of leaks out of the air vent, and sometimes when I open the cover the straw flicks out water everywhere! Not fun have a class mate freak out at you 'for getting her hair soaked!' haha.
I also wish the straw was wider so it would be easier to drink out of, even with squeezing and sucking. :/
I still love it, but.. I really wish it took out fluoride! :((

I love the fact that no matter where I go, I can have safe water to drink. I don't have to purchase over-priced bottled water or worry about river or stream water. The cost of the replacement filter is pennies compared to all the bottled water I would need to buy.

my fault, i didn't realize how this worked; you have to suck really hard to get the water up through the filter; i'm not used to it.
GetBerkey Reply: Actually you are supposed to squeeze the bottle. That will force the water up through the straw and you won't have to suck though the straw.

The berkey sport was a solution for our family. We spend a lot of time chasing our high school athlete from venue to venue. It gets expensive! One of the big expenses is all the bottled water we have to bring. Not anymore. I bought one for each member of the family. Now we just head to the nearest faucet and filler-up. Everyone is impressed with the crisp clean taste of the water and they prefer it to (even) high end bottled water. This purchase is one of the best I've ever made!

This bottle is amazing. Did I mention that it is amazing?! Well it is! I didn't have any problem with leaking from the top. I will be ordering some extra filters soon because I consume so much more water now that I know I am not getting any toxic substances from NYC. Also it was really nice receiving a handwritten note from GetBerkey. I believe you have a customer for life!

Went to a festival where they only had non-potable or bottled water. Was easily over 100 degrees, very glad I had this item! Best part was being able to drink water in the shower!!! bahaha.

I love it.

Okay... what a wonderful product! My kid can't wait to take it camping... to see if it really works with river water! I love the taste of the water... and knowing that I'm drinking PURE water... with no bad stuff. I would rate a 5, however, the ONLY thing that I would change is the straw... I'd make it a tad wider and make it so the water comes out a tad faster. Let me know when this happens and I'll upgrade! I bought one for my entire family now!

Already owned a Sport Berkey Water Bottle. Needed another for travel. Thinking of buying more as gifts.
