Crunchy Betty: Are you prepared for a water emergency? That's what Betty asked her readers after a water main break rendered their place without water for a while. Fortunately for her, they were ready thanks to their Berkey Light. Though she confesses it would have been ideal to store up at least a gallon of water for each person for 3 days, they were in good shape nonetheless. Why? Because with their Berkey Light on hand, all they need do is find some water from ANY source, and pour it into their Berkey, and voilà: crystal clean and pure drinking water.
Sweet T Makes Three: Deadly tornadoes left Jenn's area without any utilities for a week. Shortly afterwards, one of their family's wishlist item was finally acquired: a Berkey Light. Now they are prepared for any emergency that can threaten their water supply.

Drinking more water daily has been clearly proven to have a noticeably positive impact on overall health. But when you are drinking unfiltered tap water, the amount of pollutants taxing your liver and kidneys are staggering, and ultimately compromising your health. Bottled water regularly makes headlines as being nothing more than city water bottled up with a pretty label.
Drinking water was typically polluted with viruses, parasites, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, and the usual heavy metals, such as lead and mercury. Municipalities treat water for such contaminents with marginal to moderate success. However, treated water is often found to have excessive levels of chlorine and fluoride, and there is an increasing amount of research proving that these chemicals do more harm than good (it's like choosing between two evils).
To make matters worse, municipalities accross the U.S. are finding unprecedented levels of pharmaceuticals, and other chemicals in water. The list of pollutants commonly found in drinking water seems to just keep growing. Pesticides, MTBE, trihalomenthanes, nitrates, herbicides, VOCs, radon 222, organic solvents, and the list goes on.
Our Berkey Light's driving factor IS the quality of the resulting water because the Berkey Light can remove ALL the pollutants mentioned on this page and some. A few of the added benefits are the fact that they are quite portable, and use no electricity or water pressure. The elements are cleanable, and last a number of years. Oh, and here is something NO OTHER filtering system on the market can do, filter water from a lake, pond, swimming pool, etc. That's right, our Berkey Light produce the highest quality water regardless of the source (except for salt water).
For over 14 years now, our family has used and sold Berkeys, and love them. Give us a call or e-mail us, and we'll be glad to talk with you about them. Oh, and check out the FAQ Page, and the reviews below for more insight into these top-of-the-line filters.
The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system, available in bright white or beautiful cobalt blue or multi-color allowing for optimum use day or night. Incredibly, the Berkey Light LED lamps have an average life of over 11 years of continuous use and are so bright the white LED’s can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark, yet they require very little energy.
The adaptable Berkey Light LED lighting system is designed for long-term use even when electrical power is not available. The LED lamps can be powered by the AC adapter (included with LED base) when electricity is available, or by the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base).
When used with the Berkey Light LED Base, these water droplets light up and glow and the resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere. What’s more, the detachable base can be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight. This makes the Berkey Light system the ideal camping-light and emergency light.

I wonder if it may be that the LED was not charged for 24 hours prior to using it? The directions say to plug it into the wall for 24 hours before you ever use it, and then it will hold its charge. I love the light! It's really pretty :)

No, they are also, unable to ship it to Iowa, so I did an illegal and had it shipped to a family member out of state. I order the travel size and you would not get it away from me. No more haulng in 6 gal of water per week. I am alone and I am unable to carry them in, so a family member had to come and bring them in. Now I don't need to go to get groceries once a week. The water test pure and tastes so good after a few times of running the water through. In a previous submitting, he talked about a Zero, They do not test good at all.

The water that comes from our faucet is undrinkable...the Berkey changes that! It is amazing! Only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it has leaked from about the second week we had it. I am constantly wiping up water leaking.

Our family has been enjoying our Berkey Light for almost six years now! Hard to believe!
We are a family of 7 going on 8, and we are still using the original 2 filters that came with it. It works just great!
We take it when we travel and extended family fill their water bottles from it before they make their trip home! They can taste the difference! Thanks for carrying these!

I received my Berkey today. My son came home from school and announced that the water was "perfect!" It was easy to put together and I suspect it will be easy to clean. The shipping was fast and the support people I talked to were amazingly nice. I would definitely recommend this Berkey to EVERYONE and definitely buy it through this site because these people are swell. :) Thanks!

This filter makes the sink water taste better than bottled water!! Its clean crisp and pure in taste, no chlorine or metallic taste. It is just like the water I grew up drinking. I live in the city now and can taste the difference in the water, without the filter it tastes strongly of chlorine and metallic substances. once its through the filter it tastes like the water i grew up on in the country. It tastes just as good if not better than the water from the aquifers!! I highly recommend this filtration system to anyone looking for clean pure tasting water and save hundreds of dollars in filtration of that water!!

I love my Berkey Light filtration system & I recommend them to people all the time BUT I also warn them not to purchase the LED because it just doesn't work. It's a nice idea but it doesn't hold a charge. The light can't go camping & it wouldn't be any help should the power go out. Even while plugged in after charging all night it still only shines for 15 min. The company was good enough to exchange it 3 x for me with no good results. Finally I gave up. The LED is still in my base reminding me what a wasteful example of stewarding my $ it was. I'm posting here to save other people from making the same vain mistake I did.

We bought 3 systems. One for our house, one for our dance studio, and a third as a gift for a good friend. The Berkey's are a hit all the way around. We have been using the filters for five months, going through a tank a day. The water quality has remained consistent, always tasting great.

I purchased an overpriced soft water and R/0 unit 5 years ago manufactured by Covenant. The warranty was a lie, the customer service is nearly non-existent, in comparison with other companies similar products, the Aquativa product, 'warranty' and 'service should rate it a negative number.
I purchased a Berkey Light and I have no complaints--what I do have is a very strong recommendation. I paid $5000 for that useless %&#$@. I should have, would, and will only buy a Berkey from now on. If you're considering buying a Berkey, please do it....you will be glad you did.

This is how I remember water tasting when I was a kid. Clean, clear water that is leaps and bounds beyond tap or even bottled water. The smell test is all you'll need to convince yourself. Fill the upper chamber with tap water, and while it's filtering, smell a glass of water poured from the purified lower chamber. I never noticed how much like a swimming pool my tap water smelled like before I started using my Berkey. I also recommend the PF-2 fluoride/arsenic attachments.

We have had our Berkey for over 3 years and love it! (We have also had the same filters the whole time & just clean them once a week with a toothbrush). We fill it up at least once a day.
My husband worked around pesticides all his young life and knows very well what they smell like. He can smell the pesticides coming out of the tap! (We live in a farming town) Sometimes our tap water is dark yellow! Gross!
I am so glad we have this filter. The water tastes much better. We were using the pitcher filtration but they don't even come close to the Berkey! It is in a class all by itself! I have never regretted buying this filter! It is worth every penny and then some. Highly recommended!

Got the order wrong that was disappointing. AS for the Berkey, easy to set up and it works as advertised.

The Berkey Light Water Filter arrived safe and sound by UPS. The ladies were out so Ben and I commenced preparation of the unit for immediate service. It was prepped within 15 minutes and filtering cool, clear water shortly after! Thank you so much! Frankly, I was amazed it was easier and quicker to set up than our previous faucet-connected unit.
