Product Overview

Comes with 4 British Berkefeld ceramic filters.

Optional Accessories:

The versatile British Berkefeld system is the ideal system for use at home with small or medium sized families, travel, outdoor activities or 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 everyday use, outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

The British Berkefeld system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites and reduces harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, and VOCs without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with four 7" ceramic SuperSterasyl filters. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13" in height.

When used with 4 ceramic filters, the system is capable of filtering about 24 to 30 Gallons per day.

This system can also be configured to work with 2 filters. Comes with 2 blocking plugs to seal up extra filter holes as needed.

SuperSterasyl Ceramic Filtration Elements

British Berkefeld systems use the age-old process of micro-porous filtration used by nature coupled with modern state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to produce one of the finest water filtration systems available anywhere. At the core of the sub-micron ceramic filter is the most basic of elements: Diatomaceous Earth. This is the same substance, which artisans refine into exquisite porcelain and pottery.

The microscopic pores of the ceramic filter element make it an extremely efficient filter for the reduction of particulate matter, pathogenic bacteria and fine sediment from water. Minute particulate matter will quickly plug media style filters, but the ceramics have the added benefit of being re-cleanable and re-useable.

The Super Sterasyl element, used in British Berkefeld systems, utilizes the latest technological advances of ceramic filtration by incorporating pure silver impregnation into the porous ceramic shell to inhibit the growth of bacteria.

Furthermore, the Super Sterasyl ceramic filter elements contain activated carbon, which reduces unwanted chemical and organic compounds from the water while also improving taste.

If the filtration rate starts to slow down, the filters can be cleaned. To clean, simply scrub the filters with a scotch-brite pad under running water (as in the picture above). If using tap water, the filters will normally only need to be cleaned every 6 months.

    The Best Taste in Water is No taste

    Posted by Terry on 14th Jul 2015

    I had been drinking bottled water on the road and using a Brita Pitcher at home for years. I received a printout from my county water provider listing the allowed contaminates, My Brita did not remove any of them. Online research led me to Berkey, what a difference, coffee, tea, ice cubes everything tastes better. My British Berkefeld with the optional fluoride filters is the cleanest water that I have never tasted. Thanks

    Exellent water system

    I bought two British Berkefeld systems - one for me and one for my mother. We live in different parts of the state, but the tap water at both of our houses is nasty. Our systems have the ceramic and fluoride filters, and the water tastes fantastic. Set up was quick and easy, too. We are both very pleased with our Berkeys.

    LOVE my Berkey!

    Posted by Sonja on 13th Dec 2013

    We live in the country and have a well, so we have to filter our water. We had a Zero water filtering system, but it was so cumbersome to clean, that I would sometimes just leave it for up to a month. Since we received our Berkey, I've been so happy with the results! The water filters easily, and from what I've read, will be a snap to clean. Very happy. :-)

    Excellent Water Filter.

    Posted by Dave. on 28th Mar 2013

    I am very satisfied with the "British Berkfield" Water filter. The water tastes very good, and the flow is excellent. You can taste the difference between the "Berkey", and water from a plastic bottle,IMO, it's well (no pun intended) worth the cost.

    British Berkefeld

    Posted by Kelly on 7th Mar 2013

    Water tastes so much better and I feel good knowing I am no longer contributing to unnecessary waste by buying so much bottled water. I also have peace of mind knowing I will no longer be drinking fluoride or any other possible contaminants. This system was the most inexpensive for such a powerful's great--even my cats are drinking more water!
