Maximum Filtration Flow Rate: Configured with two Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Travel Berkey system can produce up to 2.75 gallons (10.4 liters) of purified water per hour

Up to two PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Filters may be installed in the lower chamber of this system if desired.

Black Berkey™ Purification Elements

The system comes with two of the Black Berkey™ Purification Elements which are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. The micro-pores within the cleanable Black Berkey™ purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.

Black Berkey™ purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.

The powerful Black Berkey™ purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs and....because Black Berkey™ purification elements fit most gravity flters, existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded. This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminate.

No need for expensive disposable filters. Black Berkey™ purification elements are cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey™ purification elements with a ScotchBrite® pad under running water, re-install and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two - that's 22,700 litres!) and provide years of efficient water purification.

Because the Black Berkey™ Purification Elements are so powerful they can remove red food colouring from water. This allows you a method to test your system periodically. We recommended that the Red Food Color Test be run after new systems are first assembled. We also recommend that they be tested every 3 to 6 months thereafter, after your system has been in storage or before taking your system on a trip or out of the country, in order to insure your system is functioning properly.

The Black Berkey™ purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53.

Adding the optional PF-2 Fluoride FIlters

Berkey PF-2 reduction elements are designed to be used exclusively with the Black Berkey filter elements and are especially designed to remove arsenic and fluoride to deliver you with cleaner, safer drinking water. The filters will last for up to 3000 uses, but should be replaced within a year, possibly sooner if they received regular use.

Berkey PF-2™ reduction elements are designed for use in conjunction with Black Berkey™ water purification elements to adsorb the following unwanted elements found in drinking water.

• Fluoride

• Arsenic V and pre-oxidized Arsenic III

• Other residual heavy metal ions

FLUORIDE: Testing for fluoride was based on 20-30 ppm of the ion in the in-fluent aqueous solution at a flow rate of no more than 3 gpm (11 lpm) per cubic foot of media. Results of < 1 ppm of the fluoride ion in the effluent were typical for the media (>95% reduction). Under optimum conditions, effluent concentrations of less than 50 ppb were readily achieved (>99.75% reduction).

ARSENIC: This product uniquely targets the entire family of arsenic oxide anions as well as the arsenic cations.

REPLACEMENT:Under normal conditions it is recommended that each set of two Berkey PF-2™ elements be replaced after 1,000 gallons (3,785 litres). The Royal Berkey™ system is about 3.25 gallons (12.3 litres) therefore the Berkey PF-2™ filters should be replaced after 1,000/3.25 (3,785/12.3) or 307 refills. If the system is refilled about one time per day, the Berkey PF-2™'s should be replaced after 10 months, if the system is refilled about twice per day, the Berkey PF-2™'s should be replaced about every five months). Actual capacity is dependent on the presence of other competing contaminants in the source water. High levels of fluoride, arsenic and heavy metals may reduce the capacity and efficiency of the elements.

NOTES:

1) Do not boil this element.

2) Berkey PF-2™ elements reduce filtration flow rate by 15-20%.

3) The lower reservoir in most gravity purification systems has a two to three gallon capacity and a typical household uses about one refill per day. We recommend that the upper reservoir be filled at night. The water from the upper reservoir should be purified by morning. Households requiring more water can speed up the flow rate by drawing off the purified water into a water pitcher or other container when the water level in the lower reservoir rises above the bottom of the Berkey PF-2™ elements.

4) If residual process dust is still visible after priming, please repeat the priming and installation process as described in the installation instructions. If you need a copy of the Berkey PF-2™ Installation Instructions: Click Here (.pdf file)

  1. Not sure if it removes everything review by LK on 10/12/2018

    I’ve been using this product for a couple of months however I’m not sure if it removes all the bad stuff from the water as it says it does. I live in hard water area. After refilling the kettle with water 5 times I start to notice lime scale at the bottom.
    So I can only assume 4 of the filters in 1 container don’t remove line scale from the water.

    I've used a mini-Berkee for years and loved it, so wanted to upgrade. So I was excited to get the larger size. Set-up was fine, and all was well for a few days. Then one morning I saw everything sopping wet under the Berkee. Something had gone wrong and there was water very, very slowly leaking out. Overnight the leakage destroyed a bookshelf and a number of cookbooks ... needless to say, I was very unhappy. I re-positioned the unit so that a flood wouldn't damage anything. But there has never been a problem since. I have no idea what caused the problem, aware that it could recur at any time. Without that it'd be a 5-star rating, but the constant unknown of flooding means it is only 3 stars. Not what I expected from such a well-known and expensive unit. On the plus side, the unit filters beautifully. And the delivery time was excellent.

    Because my tap water is often undrinkable I have been buying bottle water for years. I tried jug filters but changing the filters was a bit of a hit and miss affair. Others seemed to remove minerals as well as contaminents. I saw this one advertised and I have been delighted with it. It looks good, the water tastes good, and no filters to change for years. A great buy.

  6. Fabulous Filtration System review by Dee T on 08/08/2017

    This is a fabulous filtration system, taking out more nasty poisons ,heavy metals etc etc than most other systems. In the long term probably the most economical of all filters, considering the expected lifespan of the filters (11 years). My only gripes are the filters are difficult to prime and with the Travel Berkey the filtration rate is quite slow, every time you use some you need to top up to have a constant flow of lovely clear and lovely tasting water. I would recommend the Big Berkey, especially if there is more than one person in the household, as the flow rate and filtration rate is much quicker,even with just two filters. Go on treat yourself...you deserve it!!

  7. Excellent! review by Leo on 30/06/2017

    The travel berkey is truly fantastic! The water tastes better than bottled water (to me, anyway), filters adequately fast, looks very good and if you do the mathematics is the cheapest form of water you can buy other than chlorinated, heavy-metal Laden tap water. Unlike reverse osmosis it leaves your minerals in place.

    I keep tropical fish and my shrimp and snails were not able to survive in artificially dechlorinated water (that is, with chemicals) but have since survived a very well with the berkey filter. I think my copper pipes were killing them). They also show their colours better. Just as my mood has improved.

    Feeding yourself poison is false economy. Go ahead and buy this filter. A word to the wise though - the big berkey will enable you to upgrade to Four Candles, which is no more expensive in the long run (just a bigger outset), but enables fast and filtration, if that's at all useful to you. I'll drill my travel one and install more if I ever need to - keep it sleek!
