The Berkey Light Earth system comes standard with 2 Berkey Earth filters. This version of the Berkey Light Earth was developed for our price-conscious customers who have always wanted a Berkey but may have found a Berkey Light Earth too expensive with the standard Black Berkey water filters. After 3 years of design and testing to develop the Berkey Earth water filter we consider them to be the best ceramic filters on the market today. The Berkey Light Earth offers high-quality filtration at a lower price, there’s no need to purchase lower costing Berkey knock-off brands any longer.
The Berkey Light Earth water filter will purify your home’s treated tap water as well as untreated water from such sources as lakes, brooks, ponds and water sources in foreign countries, where the local water supply may be compromised or regulations may not be adhered to. The Berkey Light Earth is the ideal water filter for all outside activities and is definitely a must in inhospitable environments where electricity or clean drinking water may not be at hand.
