"Light" Gravity Water Purifier 2.75 Gal with Base - (2) Black Berkey Elements
Constructed of a shatter
resistant, high impact strength non
BPA co polyester; this system comes complete with two purification
elements, a base and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system
has a storage capacity of about 2.75 gallons and when in use it stands 26.5 in
height with a diameter of 9 inches. The system stands 22 inches when used without the base
(included). Configured with two Black Berkey® purification elements
the system can purify over 4 Gallons per hour with upper chamber filled to the top.
The Berkey Light™ system 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.
The Berkey Light™ system 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
The revolutionary Berkey Light™
self-sterilizing and 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,
radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce nitrates, nitrites, sediment
and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury.
The Berkey Light, by New Millennium Concepts, is designed for everyday use and is ideal in situations where a reliable supply of treated drinking water becomes unavailable. This elegant system is constructed of transparent Lexan, making it hygienic, durable, and easy to clean and refill. The upper chamber of the two piece housing is filled with water which gravity feeds through the filters into the lower chamber.
The durable and efficient Black Berkey filtering elements last for up to 3,000 gallons each - 6,000 gallons total for this unit and can be cleaned as needed with a toothbrush.
Healthful: The Berkey Light is far superior to other filters because it removes harmful pathogenic bacteria. Its unique filtering system reduces unhealthy organic chemical contaminates and impurities while leaving in the beneficial minerals your body needs from water. It is simply the most healthful, clean, and delicious water available.
Convenient: Berkey filters assemble in minutes without tools, electricity, water pressure, or plumbing. Even more, they are simple to operate, understand, and maintain.
Economical: The Berkey Light is easily the most economical water filtration system you can own. Its unique design allows you to easily remove and clean the filters over and over again.
Powerful: The powerful Berkey Light easily cleans ordinary tap water, yet it is so powerful, it effectively handles even raw, untreated water from lakes and streams. In addition, the Berkey Light is the ideal water filtration system to have on hand in the event of an emergency or natural disaster such as blackouts, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes, when tap water is not available.
Flexible: The Berkey Light is so convenient and easy to use, you can take it with you anywhere: a vacation, hunting & camping trips, college dorms, and use it in your RV or boat.
Elegant: The Berkey Light is made of durable Lexan, the same material used to make bullet-proof glass, which makes it durable, rugged, and yet attractive and pleasing to the eye.
Proven History: The high quality and effectiveness of the Berkey system has stood the test of time. These systems have been used by relief organizations such as UNICEF, the Peace Corps, Red Cross Societies Internationally, missionaries, and relief workers in over 140 countries throughout the world.
Often it is desirable to refill the upper chamber while some of the water from the previous cycle remains in the lower chamber. With non-transparent or opaque systems the upper chamber must be removed from the lower chamber. This is inconvenient and messy because water continues to drip from the filter elements as the user checks for water levels in the lower chamber. This is especially difficult in no or low light conditions. If the user does not check the water levels there is a risk that the upper chamber will be overfilled and later cause the lower chamber to overflow. The Berkey Light System solves this problem with its transparent design. The user is able to see the water level in both chambers at all times.
