The Go Berkey® Kit is the designed for backpacking, hiking, camping, college students, world travel (business or vacation), on your desk at work or hundreds of other activities. The generic Sport Berkey® portable water filter bottle is perfect for when you are out on the trail and the Go Berkey® system works great for passive purification back at the campsite, lodge, etc. The generic Sport Berkey® portable water filter bottle can also be used to prime the Black Berkey® Purification Element when water pressure isn't available.
As with all our water purification systems, the Go Berkey® Kit is a must 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 outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
The Go Berkey® system removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
Constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel the Go Berkey® Kit comes complete with one Black Berkey® Purification Element, one generic Sport Berkey® portable water filter bottle and a vinyl carry case This system has a storage capacity of about 1 quart (.95 liters) and when in use it stands 14” in height with a diameter of 4”. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 10” in height. Weighing a mere 2.4 pounds the Go Berkey® Kit is lightweight, easily transportable and perfect for active people on the go.
Configured with one Black Berkey® Purification Element the system will purify up to 1 Gallon (3.8 liters) per hour; that's 24 gallons per day if the system is refilled continuously.*
Please Note: Due to the outdoor use of this system, the PF-2 Post Reduction element is typically not necessary, nor do they fit within the Go Berkey® system.
* Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines

Because the Black Berkey® Purification Elements are so powerful they can remove red food coloring from water. This allows you a method to test your system periodically. We recommended that the Red Food Color Testbe run after new systems are first assembled. We also recommend that they be tested every 3 to 6 months thereafter, after your system has been in storage or before taking your system on a trip or out of the country, in order to insure your system is functioning properly.
