Product Showcase: Berkey Light Water Purification System

This thread is designed to showcase the Berkey Light Water Purification System.

Feel free to post questions about the Berkey Light below, and we will post some Frequently asked questions also from time to time.



Berkey Light:
http://directive21.com/berkey-light.html

Facts:

Height x Diameter (inches) 26.5 x 9.25 (base included); The system can also be used without the base and stands 21"; Empty Weight 5(lbs); Holding capacity: Aprox. 2.75 Gallons.

Easy Setup and Simple Installation.

Configured with two Black Berkey® purification elements the system can purify over 4 Gallons per hour.

Non BPA Co-polyester Version.

How the Berkey Light Operates:

Berkey Light water purifiers are the most practical, user friendly and economical water purification systems available. To use, water is poured into the upper chamber. Gravity draws the water through the exclusive Black Berkey® purification elements. Contaminates are captured on and within the micro-porous purification elements and are separated from the water. The purified water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot. While in use, the system is joined together allowing the Berkey Light to be transported while it purifies water. This feature is useful when purified water is required in one location, such as in a food preparation area, and later in another location such as a dining area. There is no guesswork when refilling the system because the water level, in both chambers, is visible at all times. The elevated base raises the spigot level, allowing the Berkey Light to be utilized anywhere on a flat surface

The shatter resistant Berkey Light is made of high impact strength Non BPA Copolyester. The Berkey Light does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants.

The Berkey Light is so powerful it can be used to purify non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and water pressure are not available. For normal everyday situations or for hostile filtration environments, the Berkey Light is the most flexible and adaptable water filter available. The Berkey Light provides reliable, user friendly, powerful and economical water filtration and enhances the ambience of any environment.

Is this purification/filter system the same one utilized by the other Berkley Systems?

Will these filters purify swimming pool water suitable for safe consumption?

Does the 4 element system offer that much of an advantage over the 2 element system?

How many gallons will this system filter before the elements will need to be replaced?

That is correct, it uses at least 2 black berkey elements.

It depends on what is in pool water, if it is just chlorine, then it will purify it. But if there are other chemicals in the water, that will depend on which ones chemicals that were put in. Please check with your pool maintenance company to see what they are putting in the water.

The 4 element systems offer the ability to have a higher flow rate, which a lot of people are now getting it for.

Each set of black berkey elements will purify 6000 gallons of water.

Thanks again for your post.

That is correct, and the offering of free items will be going away also.
Please make your purchases asap for the old prices.

Default Light unit question

So the unit comes base 231.00 with 2 filters? Is there 1 already installed making a total of three?

Once in use what is the LAST time? As in how long will the unit last if opened
but not in use? Hope that makes sense... Compare that to food once opened it has a shelf life of X... X being what here?

Thanks !

Thanks for your questions, It includes 2 black berkey elements at 231 dollars, but the filters will need to be primed and installed after they arrive.

The filters will last for over 20 years if stored in a zip lock bag or a sealed bag. We recommend storing them dry in this manner when not in use.

Checked online for that product, and the berkey light doesn't look like aquatech.
