Compact Travel Berkey Water Filtration System

Years ago, before we developed the Travel Berkey water filter, before we offered different size systems, we were always asked why we did not offer a system that was smaller. Our customers pointed out the benefits this more compact size would offer. After much research and customer feedback we developed the Travel Berkey water filter to meet our customers’ needs. Because of its smaller more compact size, this water filter system is the ideal unit for traveling or for use in areas where counter top space is at a premium like motorhomes, motels or efficiency apartments. It easily fits into a suitcase or even an airline carry-on bag when traveling. The Travel Berkey’s ability to accept up to two filters makes it able to provide drinking water for small groups of people or smaller families of up to four people. The Travel Berkey lid as well as the upper and lower containers are all made of a high grade, durable stainless steel that is engineered to last a lifetime. This water filter system comes with everything you need to start purifying your drinking water within minutes of assembly including easy to set up instructions with no tools or special knowledge required. The tried and true stainless steel container material provides an easy to clean surface that does not allow contaminants to permeate the container. This ultra-hard smooth construction offers the benefits of resisting stubborn lime and water scale buildup, making it much easier to maintain than filter housings made of other materials.

The Travel Berkey is the perfect size!
Price: 8.00

Key Features: Two Black Berkey purifier filters (will produce approximately 6000 gallons of drinking water before needing to be replaced) Produces up to 2.75 gallons of filtered drinking water per hour 7.5″D x 18″H 6 Lbs.

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter – Easiest Filter Ever?

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter – Easiest Filter Ever?

A detailed look at the Sawyer Squeeze Water Filtration System. //// The Sawyer Squeeze caught my eye recently in the Backpacker Magazine Gear Guide as an editor’s choice. After a little research, I was quite intrigued. This system filters water down to 0.1 Absolute Microns, weighs 3oz, and has no mechanical parts. Which means less opportunity to fail out in the field. Always a plus.

But most importantly? No pumping! Sounds simple enough, but after several collective hours squatting over various streams and puddles, I’ve had about enough of that. Another cool part of this system is the ability to fill up one of the supplied collapsible water pouches with unfiltered water while on the go, and not have to worry about filtering it until later when you need it. In fact, the system comes with a sports bottle style cap on the filtering end, so you can actually drink out of it AS you filter the water.

The kit I bought here came with the filter long with 3 different size water pouches: 16 oz, 32 oz, and 64 oz. Choose whichever you need for your trip and go. Or bring all three. Just thread your chosen pouch onto the filtering unit and squeeze away. An added bonus: the filter’s threads will fit most plastic drink bottles including standard 2 liter bottles, so your choice of filter vessel options just got a lot larger. I also found that the clean water side fits into my USGI surplus military canteen perfectly. Nice.

If your wondering how often you’ll have to replace the filter and more importantly, how much it will cost, I have good news for you. According to our friends at Sawyer, you’ll never have to worry about that. This system uses a Hollow Membrane Carbon Membrane filter which compared to Ceramic filters, has a cleaning ratio of 20 to 1. Although the manufacturer says you wont need to do it often, the kit does come with a large syringe to perform a periodic backwash of your filter. Basically, you just fill it with water and blast it through the Sawyer Squeeze in reverse.

All in all, I’m pretty excited about this system. I was looking for a simple ultra-light water filtration option for solo hiking, and I think this fits the bill quite nicely.

How to Build Your Own Water Filter

How to Build Your Own Water Filter

http://www.tylertalkstrash.com Lately I’ve been catching myself reading a lot of survival stuff, more specifically about water filtration. I think that at some point in the near future, the grid will shut down for a substantial period of time, and water will become even more important than it already is.

As a result, I decided to build my own water filter. I used just two 5 gallon food grade plastic buckets and 2 Black Berkey purification elements paired with 2 Berkey Arsenic/Fluoride elements. With this setup, you save money on the costly (but pretty) Berkey upper and lower chambers while expanding your water collection capacity.

Before I go any further, I wanted to make clear that I am NOT connected with Berkey in any way. I just use their stuff and I like it. All righty, where were we?

First, the buckets. Go to your local grocery store and ask them if they have any 5 gallon food grade buckets…chances are that they’ll be happy to give them to you. Wash out the buckets.

Next, drill a 5/8″ hole in the base of the bottom bucket for the spigot. Thread on the spigot by hand, then tighten down using a wrench. This is a tricky adjustment, so I recommend when you fill up your system for the first time, you place the system in your sink in case it leaks. If it does leak, tighten it a little bit more.

Next, follow Berkey’s instructions and prime your filter elements. Essentially you’re running water through them in reverse in order to clear out the process dust and open up the micropores of the filters. This takes less than two minutes per filter.

Finally, drill two 1/2″ holes through the base of the top bucket into the bottom bucket’s lid. Then, install the Black Berkey elements by simply threading them on nice and tight by hand. The optional Arsenic/Fluoride elements are simply threaded onto the base of the Black Berkey elements.

Run a full cycle of filtered water through the system and dump it…it’ll taste a bit metallic. From here on out, you have up to 6,000 gallons with the Black Berkey elements, and 1,000 gallons with the optional Arsenic/Fluoride elements.

This is an easy project that will ensure the safety of you and yours for a long time when disaster strikes.
