Berkey Light 2.75 Gallon Water Filter

The versatile Berkey Light Water Filter is constructed of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non BPA copolyester and is the ideal system for 2-3 People. The Berkey Light System comes standard with two Black Berkey® Purification Elements but can be expanded up to 4 elements. Each durable Black Berkey Water filter will last up to 3000 gallons (6000 gallons per set of 2). Berkey Water Filter systems are capable of purifying both treated water (municipal/city water) and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, and water supplies in foreign countries.

The Berkey Light Water Filter 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.

Easy Setup and Simple Installation: The Berkey Light Water Filter sets up in minutes. Simply screw in the purification elements and spigot, put the chambers and base together and you are ready to purify your water.

The shatter resistant and virtually unbreakable Berkey Light™ system is made of a high impact strength, non BPA copolyester.

The Berkey Light Water Filter does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants. As the system purifies water, it produces the delightful and relaxing sound of falling raindrops.

When used with the Berkey Light™ LED Base, these water droplets light up and glow and the resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere.

The revolutionary Berkey Light™ cleanable purification elements purify water by removing or reducing viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and by extracting harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents and trihalomethanes. They also reduce rust, silt, sediment and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury.

The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system, available in practical white or beautiful cobalt blue, allowing for optimum use day or night. Incredibly, the Berkey Light™ LED lamps have an average life of over 11 years of continuous use and are so bright the white LED’s can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark, yet they require very little energy.

The adaptable Berkey Light™ LED lighting water filter is designed for long-term use even when electrical power is not available. The LED lamps can be powered by the 110 Volt AC adapter (included with LED base) when electricity is available, or by the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base). To use outside the US, a Step Down Voltage Converter may be required; please check your local voltage requirements first.

When power is not available, the Berkey Battery Adapter™ case (optional) provides an incredible two weeks of nighttime light from four small AA alkaline batteries and the Berkey MP Solar Charger™ (optional) provides for an endless source of power. This makes the Berkey Light Water Filter the ideal camping-light and emergency light.

What’s more, the detachable base can be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.

Berkey Water Filter Removes

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