Product Description

Product Description

The Berkey Light water purifier can be used in any setting, but it was originally designed to be a lower-cost, lightweight, portable alternative to larger stainless steel units. Weighing only seven pounds, the Berkey Light holds 2.5 gallons of purified water and can provide enough water for groups of up to 10 to 20 people. The Berkey Light is ideally suited for outdoor and emergency use, as it requires no water pressure and no electricity and can provide pure drinking water from almost any source. More than just a water filter, the Berkey Light is classified as a water purifier. Berkey's microfiltration system outperforms competitors by filtering out 99.99% of viruses and bacteria — as well as other contaminants such as chlorine and lead — without the use of harsh chemicals. The Berkey Light water filter systems have features that are unique to this specific model of water purifier. Light and durable, the see-through container makes it easier to determine the amount of water in the upper container without the need to have the water-view spigot. The built-in elevated base makes it possible to place a drinking water glass under the spigot without having to place the unit on the edge of the counter. The lightweight BPA-free poly material is extremely durable, making it dent- and shatter-proof. The Berkey Light water purifier produces the same quality and quantity of water as the stainless steel models at a more economical price. All Berkey Light water filter units come with two filters and two plugs and have the capability to accept four filters. It’s the most economical of the larger units; the two Black Berkey filters that come with the unit are good for up to 6,000 gallons of purified drinking water, at only about 2 cents per gallon.

My family got one of these about a year or two ago and I think everyone appreciates it. This thing filters water better than I could have imagined. After drinking mainly from this, I can taste the chemicals (or whatever's adding the funny taste) even in bottled water.

The biggest problem is it's going to make having to drink other water quite painful (well, the filters and the intensely slow speed of this can be a pain sometimes too).

We purchased a Berkey for our household. We have well water that has slight odor and taste. The water from the Berkey tastes great!

Unfortunately, the black filters fell apart-in less than 3 months! After checking the website and finding they were defective, I sent an email and was sent replacement filters and returned the used, broken filters. We were able to enjoy our filtered water again! That was, up until a few days ago when I found the replacement filter broken (just as the previous filter was). This set also lasted about 3 mos. much less than the websites' claim of 3,000 gallons of water!

The company has a new "prorated warranty" for the filters and will replace them, possibly for free based on the amount of time you have had them, after you fill out some paperwork and send your filters back. Mine would be free, but after this experience, I do not have much trust in the company. Who has time for this every few months?

They admitted their product was defective, replaced it-with yet another defective product, combined with a customer service phone number that no one answers and no returned phone calls, I feel ripped off! I just wish I could get a refund and return their products, but nope, I'm outside the 60-day limit and they will not allow a refund on the defective filters either!

Truly Disappointed!

My son bought a website called [..], several years ago that sells both the British Berkefeld and Berkey brand water filters. As a way of becoming familiar with the product I researched the field fairly thoroughly. Although we sell filters from other manufacturers I was most impressed by the features of the Berkey.

I lived in Mexico for the last four years and discovered that even the Mexicans don't drink the water but depend on bottled water for their drinking and cooking water. I used the Berkey water filter with the Black Berkey elements as my exclusive source of drinking water. I found it to be an excellent investment.
No system is perfect; every one I have researched has advantages and limitations. The Berkey seems to have the most advantages and the fewest limitations. We know the manufacturer of the filter personally and their research is credible. They are based in the USA.
The features of the Berkey that make it my first choice are:
It is relatively low cost - between $220 for the small Travel Berkey to $350 for the large Crown Berkey (I gave several of these units to local orphanages who were spending much of their limited finances on bottled water),

It requires little maintenance - I would clean my filter elements about once every two months,

The effectiveness of their filter - although they do not equal the water quality of reverse osmosis or distillation, both of which I have also used,
The quality is very high.

They require no plumbing or electricity to operate, making them an excellent source of water in an emergency or in Mexico where both water and electricity can be intermittant. In the small village where I lived the water and electricity is on ccassion interrupted.

First, yes this is a negative review, but a very serious one. I would also like to note that this is the 2nd Berkey Light system I have owned (I used to be a happy customer). I thought I was ordering the exact same product, but it has been changed and what they did was a complete design failure - specifically in relation to pathogen filtering which was one the primary reasons why I wanted to run our local water through it - it is not treated at all. I will explain more specifically in the review:

The major difference between the model I received and the one I first owned is the top plastic container that you screw the filters into has 4 holes drilled into it, instead of 2 with my original system. The extra holes are there in case you want to buy 2 extra filters and add them to the unit. I don't plan to, I just wanted a unit that worked like my last one did. The two extra holes also weakens the plastic and the two filters I have dont sit straight up because the structural integrity of the plastic there is compromised and it bends inwards slightly & doesn't look as nice. Product improvement failure: -1 star.

They give you two cheap rubber stoppers to plug the two extra holes. The two I got were coated in a very sticky substance, so much so that I could touch the top of them and it would stick to my finger so much I could pick them up. I washed them in soap a few times and thought I had done enough but they were still a little sticky. I did not expect the resulting water to pick up so much taste from these washers, but it has. The 'filtered water' has notes of a flavor I would best describe as diesel fuel. I know its not the source water because I have tasted it. As well, the first time I filled it, the water had great flavor.
