About Berkey Filters
Berkey has developed a reputation for high quality among campers, backpackers, and emergency preparedness enthusiasts. Their filtration works through a combination of microfiltration, adsorption, and ion exchange. If you are interested in how water filtration works, Berkey has a great page dedicated to explaining the process, here. You can read all about adsorption, purification, and ion exchange.
Berkey has also intelligently organized its products to make them easier for consumers to understand. Each is differentiated by how many gallons per hour it can filter. The smallest, the Travel Berkey can filter 2.75 GPH. The Big Berkey can filter up to 7 GPH with two filters. The very biggest, the Crown Berkey, can filter up to 26 GPH. By limiting the number of products and simplifying the reason for buying (gallons filtered in one hour), Berkey makes buying a water filter very easy.
Berkey offers free shipping on orders over $50 inside the continental USA. The company has a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied and a two-year warranty on the purification elements and the housing units. Even more amazing, if you choose to register with Berkey, the company will replace the unit if it fails in any way due to workmanship or materials–for life!
