Berkey Sport Water Purification Bottle, 22 oz - New Millennium
Get the benefits of Berkey water purification in a portable, convenient BPA-free water bottle!
The Sport Berkey Filtration Bottle is the ideal personal protection traveling companion, featuring the IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION SYSTEM. The theory behind this innovation is simple. The bottle's filter is designed to remove and/or dramatically reduce a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries where regulations may be sub-standard, at best.
The Sport Berkey Eliminates or Reduces up to 99.9% of:
Unpleasant Tastes and Odors, cloudiness, silt, sediment and chlorine
Toxic Chemicals: Trihalomethanes, PCB's, PCE's, VOC's, detergents, pesticides, etc.
Harmful Microscopic Pathogens: Cryptosporidium, Giardia, E-coli and other pathogenic bacteria
Heavy Metals: Aluminum, Asbestos, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, and Mercury
Radiologicals: Radon 222
The Sport Berkey* Utilizes IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION
This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers and engineers. The media within filter element removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. As the bottle is pressed, the source water is forced through the filter. The quality and volume of media used determine the rate of adsorption. The flow rate or time of exposure through the filter has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by pollution of industry and agriculture. 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 such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, zinc, and other dangerous heavy metals.
The "Torturous Path" structure of these pores gives it its unique characteristics. The Sport Berkey* Filtration Bottle offers a convenient and portable filtration system using medical grade technology.
Note: If using a source of water that might contain extreme bacteriological or viral contamination it is recommended that two drops of plain chlorinated bleach or iodine be added to each refill before filtering. This will kill minute pathogens such as viruses. The disinfectant will then be filtered from the water entirely removing its odor, color and taste.
Maintenance and Storage
The Sport Berkey* has a shelf life of 50 years. When the filter system will not be used for an extended period, flush the unit with a chlorinated solution of 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water. Allow to dry thoroughly with bottom cap removed. Re-assemble and stow. Do not allow filter to freeze, do not place in microwave oven and do not run hot water through the filter. Note: All contaminants that this filter has the ability to remove or reduce may not necessarily be in the user's water supply.
Care and Use
Fill the Sport Berkey with water, screw on cap and tighten securely to eliminate leaks. Flush water through filter by pulling down lever, so that straw is exposed, and squeeze water through filter & out the straw. Repeat this flushing process twice before drinking. This removes all excess process dust from the filter. After 2 flushes, rinse the bottle & cap. Your filter bottle is now ready for use. Enjoy!
This water filtration product has been tested by the University of Arizona, Spectrum Labs and the Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory at Louisiana State University in accordance with the EPA Protocol for Microbiological Purifiers and ANSI/NSF 53 adapted for sport bottles.
