The price of water from the Berkey filter is a fraction of the cost of bottled water. Two Berkey filter cartridges filter up to 22,700 liters of water and last for several years! It is the cheapest filtered water on the market.
This powerful system will clean both treated and untreated water from sources such as lakes, streams and ponds, or public water in countries where there are not too strict regulations for drinking water quality. Portable water filters are ideal for everyday use at home, for drinking water in holiday homes (chalets and cottages) and for outdoor activities. They are absolutely indispensable in an environment where untreated water, pressurized water or electricity are not available.
