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.

    Water filter

    Posted by Jennifer on 29th Jan 2020

    I like the light Berkeley for it's easy ability to fill. I use it on my countertop, and look forward to using it when I am at my remote recreation property to assure myself of safe drinking water

    Had to have help to put it together but once done it's fine. Wish there was more information like how long do the filter's last? Print is too small. Didn't realize that there was another model to Berkey Light

    Berkey Light 2.75

    Posted by LM on 29th Mar 2018

    Using daily for cooking and drinking I feel confident I am drinking better water overall. Living in California limited the purchase to the Travel or the Light. Good size, filters quickly thru 2 black & 2 Fluoride filters. I am able to slide across the counter when full. Happy so far.

    Finally...Clean water I don't have to buy in bottles!

    Posted by Chrissy on 10th Jul 2017

    I received my Berkey quickly and well packed. Everything was there with instructions to set it up. However, I confess I checked out Youtube to skip reading all the instructions more than once! Once set up, which was relatively easy and fast, I finally had clean water that I didn't have to buy, test for fluoride, impurities, etc. and, luckily my tap water is highly alkaline too! All this makes me happy, not to mention no more lugging home gallon bottles of all sizes! The taste is fresh and I feel confident I'm drinking better water overall. The cost was reasonable when I figure in cost of bottle water, gas to go buy it and carry home, not to mention the environment savings! Thank you, Berkey!

    Wish I had know about this years ago

    Posted by Ilana Opatowsky on 20th Jun 2017

    I have used Brita and Mavea water filters in the past, but I have always hated the taste of the charcoal-filtered water. I also hate the taste of the Clorox-flavored water that comes out the tap. They discontinued the Mavea filters I had been using, so I decided to see if there was anything other than whole-house filtration. I found Berkey. I live in California, so I was limited in what I could purchase, however I am happy with the Berkey Light because it is light. It's easy to move around. I followed the instructions for priming and filtered the water. One of the black filters was very slow compared to the other three, and the water still tasted bad. I disassembled, primed again and scrubbed with scotch brite pad. One filter was still slow, but the next batch tasted great. I tried it with red food coloring just for fun. I do empty out both top and bottom and clean the bottom before refilling as I left it for a few days once and it got funky. I would recommend this filter and I also think it's great since we have a swimming pool and we live in earthquake land. We'll always have water to drink.

    Better than bottled

    Posted by Susann on 25th Aug 2016

    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.
