It also reduces unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury. Like the other systems, this system is powerful enough to remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs.

Berkey® systems equipped with Black Berkey® Elements dramatically reduce trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment, radiologicals, and more.

Go Berkey Kit, Water Filter On the Go

Some may think that the best and the healthier way to trump the tap water problem is through a water bottle, but the truth is that we have no good reason to resort to drinking bottled water.

Aside from the fact that bottled water is not regulated, it is also quite expensive, and according to the EPA, it is not necessarily safer than tap water.

Bottled water also does not help with our environmental problems since about ⅔ of those bottles are thrown in landfills and oceans, polluting the water and poisoning the wildlife.

An effective water filtration system is the best way to overcome the safety problem we face with drinking water.

Berkey Water Filters
A Berkey water filter is very powerful because it has been classified as a purifier, which shows that Berkey has exceeded the standard abilities for a water filter.

Berkey is also the most adaptable and flexible water filtering system available. Berkey water filters are revolutionary; no other filters can compare to their filtering ability.

Berkey has also designed water filters that could cater to the needs of families or groups of different sizes and for different reasons and situations.

Most of the Berkey water filters available are very versatile in that they can be used for home use, but they could also be taken outdoors, camping, or for traveling.

But Berkey knows that the quality of water that you consume at home is also important when you are outside, at work, or school. That is why they designed the Go Berkey Kit.

Go Berkey Kit
The Go Berkey Kit was designed to be the ultimate outdoor water partner, and you can use it for work, school when you travel, go backpacking, hiking, or camping.

The Sports Berkey is best for when you are on the go and out and about, but the Go Berkey System is ideal as a passive purification system when you are just staying in one place.

The Go Berkey Kit can also be very helpful in emergencies. Like other Berkey water filters, it can purify treated water and water from an untreated and natural source.

The Go Berkey Kit was made with 304 highly polished AISI stainless steel, and it is also complete with one Black Berkey purification element and can store .95 liters or one quart of water.

It weighs 2.4 pounds, so it is very easy to bring along with you anywhere you go, and it was built as the perfect partner for people on the go.

Since the Go Berkey Kit has been configured with one Black Berkey purification element, it can purify up to one Gallon or 3.8 liters of water per hour, equal to 24 gallons of clean and safe water per day if you refill the system continuously.

Just because it is smaller than most Berkey water filters does not mean that it has a less superior purification system. It can still remove 99.99% of contaminants from your drinking water, like parasites, cysts, VOCs, heavy metals, and other substances that can be harmful when ingested.

Please note that the Go Berkey cannot hold a fluoride filter because it is too small.
The Go Berkey Kit is in a neat size, so it is very easy to pack when you are on the go.

When traveling, having a Go Berkey by your side is a great idea, especially if you are still determining the quality of the water in the place where you are heading.

With the Go Berkey Kit, you can ensure your drinking water is safe wherever you are.

GO Berkey Kit w/ Black Primer and Water Bottle

This Berkey water filter is great! It's the perfect size for camping or for my prepper bag. I totally understand the limitations in that it cannot accept the white filter, too. That would be my only negative, if I had one. This is great. I am very tempted to get 2 more -- one for my emergency bag and one for my office desk. I love the bag that comes with it to make it easily packable and portable. It will need to be refilled several times per day, but that's perfect for someone on the go or for when you're just relaxing/camping and have all the time in the world.

GO Berkey Kit with Black Berkey Primer

Excellent product! The whole family uses it.

Nancy W (Dallas, US)

I have used Berkey for years at home. Recently ordered the GoBerkey for traveling. It is much smaller than anticipated & will take several refills to obtain enough water for myself & pets per day. I am also disappointed that arsenic & fluoride aren't filtered out but understand it is too small for both filters. With that said, I still will not drink unfiltered water so my GoBerkey gets 4 stars & a thumbs up.

Jenna Caplette (Bozeman, US)
Smaller than I expected

The travel Berkey was quite a bit smaller than I expected but it turns out to work just fine.

Richard Elias (Lexington, US)
The Berkey

Should have done this years ago! I love both of these units. I have well water, that is all that I drink. The Travel Berkey is just enough for me. If it becomes necessary to use my Bug Out Berkey it will be my go filter in the field.

Patricia Dunham

I purchased the Berkeley Go specifically for an upcoming trip but decided to try it out early. We used it for 2 people and a dog 9 days straight and it conveinantly provided the water we needed. We now leave to California in a couple days and I have no doubt it will be sufficient to adequately provide for all our water needs.
