The compact Travel Berkey system is the perfect system for use during travel and any 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 outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

The Travel Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors and unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel the system comes complete with two purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 1.5 gallons (5.7 liters) and when in use it stands 18" in height with a diameter of 7.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 12" in height.

Configured with two Black Berkey purification elements the system will purify up to 2.5 Gallons (9.5 liters) per hour.*

* Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.

*Lifetime warranty applies to stainless steel tanks, lid, lid knob, and plastic spigot. Lifetime warranty does not cover any filters nor any accidental damage. Black Berkey filters have a 2 year pro-rated warranty.

Black Berkey Purification Elements

Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. The micro-pores within the cleanable Black Berkey purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.

Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.

The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.

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.

    great tasting water!

    Posted by jennie on 25th Mar 2015

    The setup was easy and fast and now we have great tasting water no matter where we go. I'm so sensitive to the different trace contaminants in different public water supplies that I have always had to buy reverse osmosis water when ever I travel. Now I can take the travel Berkey with me and never have to make a stop at the store just to buy over priced water.

    Love our Travel Berkey!

    Posted by Tricia on 29th Jan 2015

    My husband and I are traveling the country in an RV, and we mostly do wild camping (no hookups) because we have solar for our electric. The Berkey makes having clean, safe water so easy! The water is delicious and I love that it's clean! It's perfect for being on the road. Thank you for such a great product!

    To prime with the brown washer I did this -- I reversed one of the nuts and screwed it down a little so that the flat would support the washer and not bend or push onto the threads during the prime. I pushed this against the faucet and it worked much better. Prime and remove the nut and install.

    My go-to filter all over the world

    Posted by Clarissa on 21st Jan 2015

    Every Peace Corps volunteer in Malawi is issued a Big Berkey filter with the ceramic candles and I could put the water right from my village's water source into the filter and it was drinkable and I never got sick in the two years I drank it. Now I live back in the U.S. but I don't like the heavy taste of city water additives so I got a Berkey with black candles and fluoride filters for myself and my fellow PC roommate. We threw out our Brita filter and are very happy with the taste of our Berkey water; I'm drinking so much more water than I was a week ago now that I have complete peace of mind. Can't recommend this product enough and I plan to bring it everywhere I move to.

    Just like three glacial water in Italy!

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Jan 2015

    I tried water from a stream coming directly from a melting mountain glacier in Italy.... This tastes almost exactly the same! It works exactly as described!
    This stuff its so pure and delicious, you can't taste almost anything else you couldn't before.
    This is like a new water drinking experience for me! Well worth the price, and I will NEVER go back to the Brita filters!

    The best investment to make!

    Posted by M Hyatt on 6th Oct 2014

    The Travel Berkey is great. Water tastes wonderful. Do not buy this model if there is more than one person in your household. This is ideal for a single person. It is perfect for someone who drinks 8 glasses a day and makes smoothies, etc, but if more than one person, go up a size or you will be filling daily. If that does not bother you . .as you can just do it every night . .then this will be fine. 3.5 liters a day. It fits well on the counter because of its size and that is why I like it. You need space for the others because they are so tall. I will never be without the Berkey again.
