Berkey Light Water Filter
Omega Survival is a Full Service Berkey Dealer. If you need replacement parts, filter elements, or any model, please call or visit.
See also Berkey Sport Bottle Filter, same great filtration capability in a portable, daily-use size.
Constructed of strong shatter resistant, BPA-free poly, the system offered here comes with two black purification elements, the raised base, both large resevoirs and a cap.
The filtration unit holds 2.75 gallons and stands 27" high, 10" wide. It fits right in with the feel of any kitchen, almost becoming a central meeting station for the family to get great-tasting, newly purified water.
The Berkey Light is configured at the factory to accept two filters (which come with the package), but it can easily be expanded by the end user to take up to four filter elements. With just two filters, the unit can filter over 4 gallons in one hour; expanding to four filters increases the output of purified water to over 8 gallons per hour.
The filtration elements that come with the Berkey Light remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals like herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, heavy metals, bad taste and odor -- all while leaving the minerals our bodies need.
Imagine. On a daily basis, you are providing the best possible water for you and your family at a cost of less than $0.02 per gallon AND if the worst case scenario happens you can draw water from streams, ponds, lakes, retaining ponds -- anywhere -- and have a guaranteed safe source of water.
Look at the other photo of the unit and you will see food coloring in the top (non-filtered water), but as it drips through the gravity-fed purification elements it is cleaned and comes out clear. I have run this test myself personally at home. It works.
I have had the Berkey Light in my home, personally, for over 5 years. It took me a long time to buy the Berkey due to its price. I can say with confidence and honesty that I am glad I did. I have only recently had to change the filter elements, as just one set of two filters will clean up to 10,000 gallons of water. The Berkey is big enough to provide water for a whole family, but it's small and light enough to easily pack along on camping trips or if you need to get out of dodge quickly. It is a cornerstone in my own preparedness plan.
