The Go Berkey Portable Water Purification is a fully portable way to filter water on the go. There are two different water filtration systems contained in this kit. First, you’ll notice the Go Berkey Stainless Steel Water Filter. It’s based on the design of the larger Berkey filtration systems, which means that it offers an excellent level of protection against all sorts of unwanted contaminants and toxins. At 3 lbs this unit is convenient to carry around, whether biking, camping or hiking. Despite its small size, it can filter up to a gallon of water an hour.
Some people even choose to use this system in their homes instead of buying a larger Berkey system.
Also included in the Go Berkey Kit is the Sport Berkey Water Bottle. This is a BPA free plastic water bottle that holds 22 ozs of water. Inside is an Ionic Adsorption Micro Filter. Berkey states that despite its small size, this filter is capable of removing a wide variety of unwanted contaminants from your water. The Go Berkey Stainless Steel Water Filter is capable of filtering up to one gallon every hour. That means if you use it continually it could potentially filter 24 gallons of water every day. It’s gravity fed and does not depend on electricity.
The Sport Berkey Water Bottle works differently. First you fill up the bottle with water from any lake, stream, creek, or faucet. Berkey recommends that if you’re taking water from a polluted source, you add two drops of chlorinated bleach or iodine. This will ensure that the largest range of viruses are killed, and will be later removed by the filter.
After you’ve screwed the lid back onto the water bottle, you prime the system by squeezing the bottle causing water to come out the straw. Repeat this process twice, then you’re ready to start drinking.
