The Berkey Light® system is the ideal system for use at home with large families, travel, outdoor activities and during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for home and outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available. It provides a slightly cheaper and lighter see-through alternative to the stainless steel units while still being portable.

- Configured with 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Berkey Light system can produce up to 4 gallons ( 15.2 litres) of purified water per hour
- Configured with 4 Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Berkey Light system can produce up to 8 gallons (30 litres) of purified water per hour
