If you are familiar with the range of Berkey Water Filters, you will know that they are one of the most reliable water filters on the market. Not only do they remove all known chemicals, bacteria and silt, sediment and other particles from your drinking water but also foul tastes and odors. All Berkey Water filters are portable.
The powerful Berkey Purification Elements (filters) include a special filter element that can also remove fluoride, viruses and heavy metals from any water. Since they are so powerful they are very useful for campers, fishermen, explorers, and people working in remote spots of the world, where clean tap water is not available.
Water from sources such as lakes, streams and even stagnant water can be purified and turned into drinking water. The filters have been approved by many organizations that are active in poor rural areas around the globe. These include The Peace Corps, UNICEF, and The Red Cross.
What is a Scratch and Dent Berkey?
Scratch and Dent Berkeys are those that have accidentally been damaged at some stage during the manufacture, transportation or storage period. These units might have slight scratches or dents on their exterior, but their integrity has not been compromised in any way. Once you decide to purchase one of these units, you will also receive two brand new Black Berkey water filters with it.
How do Berky water systems work?
All Berkey systems, except for the Sport Berkey, have an upper chamber which rests on a lower chamber. The upper chamber, also known as the canister, houses the Black Berkey Purification Elements and this is where the unpurified water is poured. The bottom chamber is where the filtered purified water flows to and can then be served by using the spigot.
