Berkey Light (TM) 2.75 gal Water Purification System with Blue LED Light Base and two (2) Black Berkey Elements - New Millennium
The Berkey Light doesn't just filter your water - it purifies it!
The Berkey Secret
Introducing the most advanced passive water purifier available. The Berkey Light is so powerful it can even be used to purify raw, untreated water from remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries where regulations may be sub-standard at best. So how does the Berkey Light remove pathogenic bacteria, cysts, chemicals including herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, PCB's, PCE's, VOC's, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, foul tastes and odors? And, how is it able to reduce heavy metals such as cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, zinc, aluminum and other dangerous heavy metals, as well as nitrates and nitrites without removing the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs?
The Berkey Light's unique design combines the age-old process of micro-porous filtration coupled with modern state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials to bring you the finest water filtration system available anywhere. The micro pores within the filters are so small that pathogenic bacterial are simply not able to pass through them. The media within the filter elements removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. This exclusive filter also incorporates proprietary "absorbing" media that are impregnated into the micro-porous filter for the IONIC absorption of pollutants into the filter. This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers and engineers.
Another reason the Berkey Light is so effective in removing contaminants from water is the long period of time the water molecules are in contact with the filter media. For example, if you were to throw 100 steel ball bearings at a large magnet placed ten feet away, some would stick to the magnet but many would bounce off. However, if you were to walk over and place the ball bearings on the magnet, most if not all would adhere to the magnet. The same principle applies in water filtration. Filtration systems that rely on water pressure bombard the filters with water at 60-90 PSI. This allows very little contact time, typically less than a second, as water molecules slam into the filter element and bounce off its media. By comparison water molecules, passing through the "Torturous Path" structure of the Berkey Light's filters, are in contact with the filter media for five to ten minutes. The flow rate or time of exposure through the exclusive Black Berkey purification elements has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals and pathogenic bacteria found in nature and caused by pollution of industry and agriculture.
The flexible Berkey Light's LED lighting system is designed for long-term use whether or not electrical power is available. When electricity is available, the LED lamps can be powered by the AC adapter (included with LED base) or the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base). During situations where electrical power is not available, the Berkey Battery Adapter (optional) provides an incredible two weeks of nighttime light from four small AA alkaline batteries and the Berkey MP Solar Charger (optional) provides an endless power supply
The Berkey's LED lamps are unique because incredibly, they have an average life of over 11 years of continuous use and are so bright the blue LED's can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark, yet they require very little energy. In fact, the low energy LED's are able to provide light, all night long, for over two weeks on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries. That's why the Berkey Light is the ideal emergency light, camping-light and nightlight. What's more, the detachable base can be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.
When filtering, the Berkey Lights acts like an echo chamber enhancing the delightful and relaxing sound of falling raindrops. And, as the light shines through the water, the droplets of water light up and glow. The waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area and these lighting effects, coupled with the sound of raindrops, combine to create a beautiful and surrealistic atmosphere.
How the Berkey Light Operates Berkey Light water purifiers are the most practical, user friendly and economical water filtration and purification systems available. To use, water is poured into the upper chamber. Gravity draws this water through the exclusive Black Berkey purification elements. Contaminates are captured on and within the micro-porous purification elements and are separated from the water. The purified water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot. While in use, the system is joined together which allows the Berkey Light to be transported while it is purifying water. This is a handy feature when purified water is required in one area, such as in a food preparation area, and later in another area such as a dining area. There is no guesswork when refilling the system because the water level, in both chambers, is visible at all times. The elevated base raises the spigot level, allowing the Berkey Light to be utilized anywhere on a flat surface.
Constructed of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non-BPA copolyster; the system comes complete with two purification elements, a base and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.75 gallons and when in use it stands 26.5 in height with a diameter of 9. The system stands 21" when used without the base (included). Configured with two Black Berkey® purification elements the system can purify over 4 Gallons per hour.
Berkey water filters and purifiers have become the standard of excellence by which all other water filtration systems are measured. You deserve the freshest, cleanest water possible from the world's most superior water filtration and purification systems.
The Berkey Light assembles in minutes without tools, electricity, water pressure, or plumbing. What's more, they are simple to operate and maintain.
ECONOMICAL The Berkey Light is easily the most economical purification system you can own. Its unique design allows you to easily remove and clean the Black Berkey purification elements over and over again.
POWERFUL The Berkey Light is so powerful, it is able to purify raw, untreated water from lakes, rivers and even stagnant ponds. What's more, the Berkey Light is the ideal purification system to have on hand in the event of emergencies, such as blackouts, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes, when tap water is not available.
FLEXIBLE The Berkey Light is simple and convenient to use and can be utilized anywhere: on vacations, hunting & camping trips, in college dorms, RV's and boats.
AMBIENT The Berkey Light's eight LED lamps are so bright they can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark and incredibly, they are able to provide light, all night long, for over two weeks on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries. This makes the Berkey Light the ideal emergency light, camping light and nightlight. What's more, the detachable base is designed to work as a stand alone emergency flashlight.
The Berkey Light Filter element has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA & ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol. Tested by the University of Arizona, Spectrum Labs, and the Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory at Louisiana State University.
