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 water bottle, but the truth is that we actually have no good reason to resort to drinking a bottled water.

Aside from the fact that bottled water is not regulated, they are also quite expensive and according to 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 end up being thrown in landfills and oceans polluting the water and poisoning the wildlife.

The best way to beat the safety problem that we are facing with drinking water is through an effective water filtration system.

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

Berkey is also the most adaptable and flexible water filtering system that is available. Berkey water filters are revolutionary, and there are no other filters that can compare to its filtering ability.

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

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

But Berkey knows that the quality of water that you consume at home is also as important when you are outside when you are at work or when you are at 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 the one that uses when you are on the go when you are 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 a big help in time of emergency, just like other Berkey water filter, 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 it can store .95 liters or one quart of water.

It weighs 2.4 pounds, so it is very easily 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 actually purify up to one Gallon or 3.8 liters of water per hour, that is equal to 24 gallons of clean and safe water per day if you will refill the system continuously.

Just because it is smaller than most Berkey water filter does not mean that is has a less superior purification system, it can still remove 99.99% of contaminants from your drinking water like pathogenic bacteria, parasites, viruses, 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, and so it is very easy to pack along when you are on the go.

When traveling, having a Go Berkey by your side is actually a great idea especially if you are not sure of the quality of the water in the place where you are heading to.

With the Go Berkey Kit, you can be sure that 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.


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.

Smaller than I expected

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

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.
