Berkey Water Bottle

What are the capabilities of the Berkey Water bottle? I know it doesn't have black berkey elements.
1. So how does it filter water?
2. Does it use gravity or water pressure from squeezing the bottle?
3. How good is the quality of the filtered water compared to Berkey Lite?

Thanks!

1. It filters water when you

1. It filters water when you drink the water through a straw. There is a filter at the bottom of the bottle, that is attached to the straw that is included with the bottle.
2. Water is filtered by drinking the water using the straw that is included. It filters on demand, or while you drink from the straw.
3. The quality is very good, but it does not do as well as the black berkey elements, but I used one of our bottles tonight at the park. Worked Great!

Berkey Water Bottle

1. Will it work on river water?
2. Is it just good to use on tap water only?
3. Is there a list of what it removes? ie fluoride?
4. Is it made out of BPA plastic? Including the straw?
Thanks for all the replies! Appreciate it!

pharmaceutical filtering

Has any testing been done to determine if the Berky can filter the drugs that are being flushed into the water supply?

Here is the official berkey

Here is the official berkey filters and drugs removal statement, I apologize for it being all in caps, as that was how we received it:

TO BE SPECIFIC ABOUT DRUGS IN THE WATER IS VERY IMPRACTICAL BECAUSE THERE ARE LITERALLY 10S OF THOUSANDS OF DRUGS ON THE MARKET AND TO TEST FOR EACH DRUG IS ABOUT $1000 PER ITEM. SO THE BEST WE CAN DO IS TALK GENERALITIES.

DRUG COMPOUNDS WILL TYPICALLY FALL INTO 3 CATEGOREIS. 1 IS INORGANIC COMPOUNDS, 2 IS A COMBINATION OF INORGANIC AND ORGANIC COMPOUNDS AND 3 ARE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. VERY FEW DRUGS ARE INORGANIC COMPOUNDS.

BASED UPON OUR TESTING OF THE BERKEY FILTERS THEY ARE VERY POWERFUL AT EXTRACTING ORGANIC COMPOUNDS WHICH WOULD INDICATE THAT THEY WOULD BE EFFECTIVE AT EXTRACTING DRUGS DERIVED FROM ORGANIC COMPOUNDS AND WE WOULD EXPECT THAT THEY WOULD EXTRACT THE ORGANIC PORTION OF COMPOUNDS THAT ARE COMPOSED OF BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC MATERIALS.

SINCE NO ONE HAS SPECIFIC TESTING RESULTS ON ALL THE DRUGS THAT ARE OUT THERE IT SEEMS TO US THAT THE BEST STRATEGY WOULD BE TO OBTAIN THE MOST POWERFUL FILTER AVAILABLE AND SINCE BERKEYS ARE SO SUCCESSFUL AT REMOVING ITEMS WE BELIEVE YOUR BEST DEFENSE WOULD BE TO USE THE BERKEY SYSTEM.

Looks good. Thanks for the

Looks good. Thanks for the fast service and delivery of my order!

I got a QUESTION...

Lets say I use the Berky Lite system and consume 6000 gallons over 3 years. Then I remove the 2 Black Berky elements and scrub them clean with a Scotch Guard pad. After the scrubbing, will the Black Berky elements be good to go for another 6000 gallons?

Essentially, I'm asking if I can get away with not having to replace the filters, and if passing the food coloring test after the scrubbing job will justify not needing to buy a new filter.

Thanks!

If you use the black berkey

If you use the black berkey elements for 6000 gallons, and you do a food coloring test, and it removes the red food coloring, then you can still use the filters. Put in a few drops in the top chamber, and make sure the black berkey elements are removing the food coloring.

Also, a few people from daily paul have picked up the Emergency Seed Banks we offer, which are here:

questions...

1) Do the Black Berkey Purification Elements that are included in the Berkey systems filter out more stuff than the carbon filters that I can buy at Lowes/Home Depot?

2) What is the cost of making the Berkey Light system? Seems like $209 is a lot for two plastic water jugs plus a couple of carbon filters... just curious.

thanks!

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

1) Yes, but I have not seen

1) Yes, but I have not seen what those systems remove, but from what I have seen, a lot of other systems have not shown to remove what the black berkey elements remove. This link will show what the black berkey elements remove:
http://directive21.com/accessories-black-berkey-purification...

2) We are dealers, as I do not know the cost, but the System consists of 2 chambers, 2 black berkey elements, a stand, top cover, spigot with wingnuts and washers, and instructions. Also included is our Free Items. It also is our most popular system.

I'm skeptical...

the Berkey distinguishes itself as a "gravity" fed filter, so doesn't really compare to those carbon filters found at Lowes. I have a Berkey Light, and frankly was surprised at the cost of the obviously cheap materials -- that is unless these filters REALLY are unique and do indeed capture more than the others.

They just seem cheap in quality for the price that is paid, just my HO. Having said all that, the filter does produce nice tasting water!

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

I agree with your statement

I agree with your statement about the gravity part, but most people I talk to that have a berkey, find it to be priced reasonably, and usually it costs about 5-6 cents per gallon of water overall.

question!

can you give the difference in the old -vs- new berkey lite models?

also, dimensions of the new one.

thanx!

The older Berkey Light

The older Berkey Light Version is the same size, dimensions as the new version, accept the New version has 4 holes, or can hold up to 4 black berkey elements. The 4 holes allow more flow rate, but the purification level is the same.

Probably just being uber paranoid here, but sometimes I worry that the water filters will be the mechanism used to poison all the "awake".. you want the most unaware/ ignorant and souless sheeple left, so use something only the "conspiracy theorists" would purchase.

It does wonders you will feel relaxed and having good vibes inside.
