Use your Berkey when you are away from home

  • At the cottage

If you have a cottage or home in a remote area with no access to drinking water, no more lugging heavy bottles of water to the cottage!  Berkey systems allow you to transform lake water or whatever other water source you have at hand into safe, clean water for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene.  The filter life for the Black Berkey elements is so long that you can freely use your Berkey water for all your water needs.  Just make sure to get a larger model for the cottage, since you’ll probably be using more Berkey water than if you were at home with safe tap water.

  • Hiking, camping, boating

Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate having a Berkey on hand to purify water from a stream, a lake or any other source of natural water that may or may not be fit for human consumption.  A Sports Berkey is a great item to carry in your backpack, or you may choose to bring along a Berkey Light, Travel Berkey or Big Berkey while you are camping or for use in your RV or on your boat.  Berkeys will treat any kind of water except sea water as it is not designed to remove salt from water.


  • During foreign travel

If you do a lot of foreign travel, you likely visit countries where local water cannot be trusted and you are forced to buy bottled water that is sometimes of questionable source. Having a Go Berkey Kit with you everywhere you go will ensure you have access to safe drinking water at all times.

Emergency Preparedness

Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency.

A normally active person needs to drink at least two liters (half a gallon) of water each day. People in hot environments, children, nursing mothers, and people who are sick will require even more.  You will also need water for food preparation and personal hygiene. 

Owning a Berkey lets you have the peace of mind of knowing that you will always have access to clean, safe drinking water, even in the case of an emergency or an environmental catastrophe.  Berkeys filter out 99.999% of virus and bacteria, and they even remove 99.9% petroleum products, so you can literally purify ANY source of water with a Berkey, even water from a stagnant puddle in the street!
