Portable Water Filter
The Go Berkey is the most portable system in the Berkey range that utilises the standard black Berkey Purification Element. It is ideal for world travel, short business trips, backpacking, hiking and camping. It is also used by college students, and even office workers find it convenient to have a system on their desk – in fact, any situation where a personal water purification system is required.
The Go Berkey comes in 2 options: (1) a stand alone set (just the main set with one Black Berkey Filtration Element), or (2) the Go Berkey Kit, which comprises the aforementioned set, together with the generic Sport Berkey portable water filter bottle and a vinyl carrying pouch and a manual primer.
The generic Sport Berkey portable water filter bottle is ideal when you outdoors, for example jogging, cycling, hiking, taking a day trip, etc., while the Go Berkey system works great for passive purification back at your hostel room, hotel room, campsite, etc. The generic Sport Berkey portable water filter bottle can also be used to prime the Black Berkey Filtration Element when water pressure isn’t available.
Like the rest of the steel systems, the Go Berkey is constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel, and it comes complete with one Black Berkey Filtration Element. The system has a storage capacity of about 0.95 litres. When it is in use, it stands 36 cm in height with a diameter of 10 cm. When packed for transport, the upper chamber nests within the lower chamber and stands only 25 cm in height. The Go Berkey is light-weight, weighing a mere 1.1 kg. It is easily transportable and perfect for active people on the go.
The system will purify up to 3.8 litres per hour; that’s 90 litres per day if the system is refilled continuously.*
Note: This system is mainly for outdoor use, and the Berkey PF-2 Post Reduction element will not fit within the Go Berkey system.
