Blemished Travel Berkey​ Systems: Same Great Performance at Special Price($50 Off)

The compact Travel Berkey System is the perfect system for traveling (fits comfortably in most carry on or larger suitcases), outdoor activities, and during unexpected emergencies.

Blemished systems enable you to enjoy economic savings while being assured that the performance of your Berkey​ system has by no means been compromised. Cosmetically blemished Berkey​ systems come with the same warrantied Black Berkey​ Purification Elements that have made Berkey​ Water Filter the leader in the industry.

Blemished Berkey​ systems are identified by a distinctive “B” stamped on the upper and lower stainless steel chambers, which indicates that the chambers ARE NOT warrantied against cosmetic defects.

However, the ​Black Berkey​ Purification Elements carry the standard 2-year pro-rated limited warranty,​ which provides you with the same performance and longevity that you would experience with any of our non-blemished Berkey​ systems.

We are glad we got our Berkely, the water is very smooth and so nice not having a bad taste with our water! Love it!!

The best water filter yet!

My husband and I have experienced other water filters yet this is the best, providing us with the best tasting water. And the ease with setting it up and using it on a daily basis is much appreciated.

Great product.

We moved into an apartment complex, water needed to be filtered. We bought the Travel Berkey and we absolutely love it. Water tastes so good, if I can't have an R/O installed only way to go. Thank you.

A little gem

I use a much larger Berkey filter at my home, but the Travel Berkey is great for anyplace that doesn't have much room. My son's kitchen has limited sink counter space, and I gifted him the Travel Berkey to place near his sink. Easy to fill, and enough purified water for general use. It makes a mother feel confident that his water is good quality.


Have wanted a Berkey for a while, and finally purchased in 2021 summer. Love it, and taste the difference immediately - basically tastes neutral - just what I wanted. We are lucky enough to live in the mountains and have well water, I got the travel size, and will be taking it to Mexico every season from now on.
