Berkey water purification systems are far superior to other water filtration systems. Berkey filters eliminate viruses, harmful pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites as well as hazardous chemical contaminants and impurities while leaving undisturbed the essential minerals your body needs. So powerful, the Berkey water filter system is able to remove food coloring from water.

Berkey water filtration systems can easily purify ordinary tap water, yet are so effective, they efficiently purify untreated water from such sources as lakes and streams. What’s more, Berkey water filter systems are the ideal water purification systems to have on hand in the event of natural disasters such as blackouts, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes as well as local or national emergencies when treated tap water may not be available. In foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best, Berkey water filters are the perfect solution. Portable, handy and easy to use. They can be set-up in minutes with no need for tools, electricity or water pressure.

The two most popular Berkey water filter systems are the Berkey Light (pictured below - allows viewing of the water level through the container) and the Big Berkey (about the same size as the Berkey Light but made from stainless steel). For a comparison of various Berkey models see the Berkey comparison chart.

Naturally the foundation of a healthy life and a healthy body is clean and fresh drinking water. These days clean and fresh water is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Our drinking water is often laced with chlorine, lead, high levels of harmful bacteria and other unwanted chemicals and contaminants. Bottled water can also contain these same contaminants not to speak of the huge waste problem caused by the disposal of all the plastic bottles. Most other water filtration systems are inferior; either pushing the water through the filter too quickly, thus not capturing all contaminants; or too efficiently, thus removing the beneficial minerals your body needs.

This is why the Berkey Water Filter has proven itself as the world's ultimate in water purification. This simple, yet highly effective method of using gravity to purify water was developed in England almost 200 years ago... yet it still produces some of the finest, most healthful drinking water available.
