This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
The Travel Berkey® system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

I am sorry to do this this way but I do not personally own this system. The people I work for do and I very much covet having one myself.
I want this size because I personally have a small family.
The water tastes delicious through this system. And after researching water filtration systems, I know for a fact this is the best one money can by. Even if I had to filter pond or rain water I’d bee all set for many years to come with this system.
Just returned from a month long trip down south and sooo glad I brought the Travel Berkey with me. Georgia water was very chlorinated and with wanting to drink 1 plus gallons of water a day for health and after workouts, it was huge! Basically filled it once a day and is gave me the fresh clean water I wanted. Setup and takedown were easy. I precharged the filters per the instructions and after the first filtering was discarded, as prescribed, it was ready. Probably saved $50 plus on bottled water and the Berkey is barely broken in. Plus I have the knowledge of setup and use to expedite future uses. Just be careful not to overfill the upper chamber as the water will flow over and out of the lower part of the filter system if overfilled. Thanks for a great product!

I have been using my new travel Berkey for a couple of weeks. Love the stainless steel. It seems to be slow so I fill it and walk away. We have been using our RO system for years. The water tastes really great and we add minerals to the filtered water. The Berkey water doesn’t taste real good. Reminds me of well water. I am taking it straight from the tank before the water softener. It is leaving a scum in my teapot, the tea tastes like dish rag, and the tea is cloudy. Any advice or is the water supposed to taste like this? I have read so many rave reviews. The shipment arrived when expected and was packed to avoid the rough handling we have come to expect.
We recommend making sure to purify the water before it goes through an RO System or Softener. Also, please do a red food coloring test to make sure it is removing all of the red color.

Great! Fits in the suitcase well! Spent a couple months in North Africa. Clean water everyday. Left it with my co workers, bought another to replace this one at the house as the old one was. INSURANCE. 6,000 gal / $228. no water bottle dragging. You Tell Me! Clean and honest
The Travel Berkey is everything I had hoped for! We’ve been using a Big Berkey in the kitchen for around 10 years, and bought the smaller version for the camper trailer. It’s just what we need for when we’re on the road and using water from unknown sources.
