Size Doesn’t Matter – Travel Berkey.
Water serves as an important component of our daily lives, we do so many things with it, and without its presence, there would be tasks and important matters that won’t work well and can’t be done.
You might be living in places abundant with water, but the problem is not limited only to the amount but also to its cleanliness and safeness for consumption.
People who are unaware of the possible effects of consuming contaminated water won’t really worry much about certain peculiarities on their tap; smell, texture or slight discoloration are actually signs of contamination.
The toxins and pathogens present in untreated water may bring you more risk than the benefit of consuming it; even treated water sometimes has harmful sediments left.
We consume water several times every day. Thus, water consumption does not only take place at home.
Sometimes we travel out with our family, go on picnics and camping; when we are out in these moments, what do we have to protect us from consuming contaminated water in the area?
At home or out in the wild, it is advisable to have enough clean water to consume; Why would there be a need for clean water? How would it be possible?
The Importance of Clean Water
Water source is everywhere, supplied or naturally existed; none are safe for immediate consumption.
Water as a hydrating matter is very important to our body, what we intake may live sediments and substances behind.
If you think that to be hydrated is all that matters, then you have misunderstood the real essence of water for our health.
Water is considered to be a cleansing agent on our body, and we intake it to clean the toxins and unwanted substances left by the food we ate.
Since it is a cleansing agent, it is expected to minimize the existing toxins in our body; but what would happen if the water itself is full of toxins?
As you gulp into contaminated water, everything that goes with it will end up inside of you and might cause complications and illnesses.
If you think clean water is not an issue since you have clear water, then you must know that not all harmful substances are visibly seen; bacteria, pathogens, fecal matters, and hazardous chemicals are only a few of the many toxins that are not visible to the naked eye.

I love my Berkey, it’s a super great product. But the seller opens the box and puts the “bonus” items inside the Berkey. It felt a little weird when I got a box that had been opened and taped back closed, but it kinda crossed the line when I found greasy finger prints on my new $300 stainless steel filter. For that reason, I’d say the world’s best water filter from someone else.
The metal valve is kinda nice, and looks a bit better than the default plastic one (which you still get in addition to the metal one), but functions the same. Because it sits right next to the black base, the black and metallic both look fine.
As for the Berkey itself, the charcoal filters make the purist water ever. It’s such a great solution for counter-top filtering. I still prefer the taste of a really nice (expensive) spring water from a glass bottle (like Acqua Panna); the minerals in spring water add a bit of pleasant taste that the absolutely pure Berkey water lacks. But if you’re comparing it to water that comes in a plastic bottle, or out of a Brita, there’s absolutely no comparison, the Berkey is the clear and away winner.

The stainless steel spigot over the plastic one very easy to fill water bottles.

Has changed our water world! Love, love, love
Susie Curts –
Excellent, just as the other two models I have.

Love this filtration system. Simple to use once it is set up. The instructions were a bit confusing and seemed to be lacking some information, but figured it out. Also a bit difficult to “prime” the filters, but once it was set up, it is very easy to use. Water tastes great and good to know that it is actually clean.

little bit of setup time required, but works great. I wish they sold a visible water level tube for the stainless faucet though……

Easy to install, nice stainless finish (also bought the stand) with the matching tap. Water tastes completely different.

Perfect for a house of 2 (heavy water consumers: 1.5 qtr bottles of water each daily, plus cooking, daily tea and coffee) – SUPER clean and great tasting water. The stainless steel spigot is fantastic – great flow, no dripping after use (like the black plastic), and super easy to install. Priming the filters wasn’t my favorite, but the holy water as a result is worth it!
Kevin Lee –
Like it but the handle had already come off the lid.
Esther Abramowitx –
I love this thing. It makes the water not taste like toothpaste and poolwater anymore.
Kristen Galvez –
Great filter. Looks nice on the counter. Good packaging.

Small, but not really for “travel”. You would do best to disassemble it before driving with it as the filters will fall off, and there is no way to know if they got damaged inside. I drove with it in the front seat, inside a bucket with pillows and secured with seat belt. The Fluoride filters fell out, thus contaminating whatever water had been filtered. Not sure if they were damaged.
Do not think this is for TRAVEL.
Very nice for home use.

You will drink a lot more water with this it taste that good!! Cook with this water, make coffee or tea with this water! Everything will taste better. Your PH levels will go up which will reduce inflammation and prevent a lot of problems and maybe diseases with your body. Babies need this in their formula or breastfeeding moms need to drink this water. Everyone needs to drink this water!! It did take a long time to prime the fluoride filters so I submerged my filters for a couple of days in a tub of water than installed them. Fill the top tank than you may have to wait a few days before it starts working. Well worth the wait. My 15 year old son would not drink water but now he is. I got this one since it has the stainless steel spigot, no carcinogens! We also got stainless steel bottles to drink our water from.
