  • Purify any freshwater source!
  • Your Berkey Light Includes: 2 Black Berkey purification elements, 1 priming washer, 2 blocking plugs, and 1 BPA free nylon spigot (see 4th photo), home and backcountry instructions.
  • Included Black Berkey Purification elements last for 22,700 Liters (6,000 Gallons) as a pair, are cleanable, and self-sterilizing. For most families this works out to a 5-6 year lifespan.
  • Great for groups of 2-4 people.  Families of 4-6 are happiest with the Royal Berkey.
  • Holds 8.5 L (2.25 G) of water.
  • NOTE: After listening to our customers feedback we highly recommend purchasing an extra set of Black Berkey Purification Elements and using all four together. This makes your unit twice as fast and more convenient. For example, a full 8.5 liter cycle purified takes approximately 5 hours with 2 elements.  This is reduced to 2.5 hours with 4 elements.
  • Purifies 15 L (4 G)/hour with 2 Black Berkey Elements (when upper chamber is full).
  • As the water level in the upper chamber declines, the purification rate slows due to less pressure on the elements.
  • Purifies 30 L (8 G)/hour with 4 Black Berkey Elements (when upper chamber is full).
  • Height while in use:  54 cms (21″), Diameter:  23 cms (9″).
  • Weight when empty:  2.5 kg (5.5 lbs).
  • Food grade, BPA free copolyester.
  • Highly durable and dishwasher safe; it is also scratch, stain, shatter and odor-resistant.
  • Health / Wellness and a Survival tool in one!
  • Read and follow ALL included instructions before setting up your unit.
  • If the lower chamber is full of water, do not add water to the upper chamber or your unit will overflow where the chambers connect.  If the lower unit is half full, you may fill the upper chamber half way.
  • If purchasing the PF-2 Fluoride filters, note they operate in-line with the Black elements.  So if you are using 4 Black elements, you require 4 PF-2 Fluoride filters.  See this page for pictures to understand better.
  • PF-2 Fluoride filters last for 3,785 liters (1,000 gallons), as a pair.  This is about 1 year for most folks.
  • Berkey filters will not purify ocean water and cannot be used with salt-softened water.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful service… I would not only purchase from you again, but I will recommend you to anyone. You provided me with an ‘on-hands’ service, which I very much appreciated. No complaints whatsoever; nothing but compliments in dealing with you and your company. When I heard of the major which you studied in Halifax, I KNEW you were a good sales person to deal with because it reassured me that you believe in your product, even after all your study.

    I am thinking of gifting one to my daughter and her family in the near future.

    Many thanks again Scott, I could not be more pleased with dealing with you.

    God bless

    We use Berkey Light’s from Conscious Water in our remote exploration camps in the Yukon. Our crews find them to be quick and easy to set up. They outperform other gravity fed filters in many respects, especially when the water has a lot of silt. The taste and quality of the water has impressed us enough that we even keep one for the office, and we’re not generally the filtered water kind of guys.

    Great service from Scott,
    Quick answers & product was quickly delivered without any issues.
    I cannot comment on the product yet as this was purchased to give as a Christmas gift.
    But from many research this is one of the best out there.

    The product is number one in water purification. The water tastes much better than straight out of the tap. I taste no chlorine or other chemicals anymore. Only drawback is it takes a while for the water to flow through the filters.

    Best purchase we ever made!! Our Berkey Light has saved us so much time and energy in acquiring great drinking water. As long as we have access to water we now get the best quality drinking water and I know it is safe and healthy for my children and family. I love having my Berkey!!
    Scott was a pleasure to deal with. His knowledge and appreciation of the system and of clean healthy water is top of the line.
    Thanks Scott for helping us get our Berkey!

    This is a great product and does an amazing job removing chlorine from tap water which had made it almost impossible to drink. I drank so much water in the first two weeks I passed a kidney stone. Thanks I guess, better now than later. Also fast and friendly service.

    Thanks Again

    Hello Scott!

    I just wanted to let you know that we are enjoying our Berkey Light. Thank you for your prompt and courteous service. I have held off on letting you know how we liked our Berkey until we were able to test it out. So far, we love it! I was a little skeptical at first as it didn’t seem to make that big of a difference in our water’s taste. It seemed to almost taste like a Brita filter, kinda charcoal like. But this has passed and is much cleaner tasting. I have noticed the filters took some time to function at full capacity, but they seem to be working just fine now. Maybe in the near future if we feel the need for extra filters we will look into that. So far they seem to be working for our needs.

    Thanks again,

    Karrie and Duane McKay

    Everything is going very well with our Berkey water purifier. We maintain it regularly, as instructed, and have had no problems, using the (untested) water from our own well. We have even used lake and river water when camping, with excellent results.

    We have been, and still are, very pleased with this product, and recommend it to others as the opportunity arises. Some, like my friend Y~~, have even bought one as a result.

    And your service is superb! Your willingness to accommodate old-fashioned ways is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    Satisfied customers,
    Keith and Lana
