How Berkey® Natural Water Purifiers Operate:
You pour the water into the upper chamber. Gravity draws this water through the exclusive purification elements where contaminates are captured on and within theses micro-porous elements and are separated from the water. The purified water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot. What’s more, Berkey® elements are cleanable and can be used over and over again.  No electricity required, these are gravity-fed.  It is the weight of the water in the upper chamber that pushes the water through the filter. This results in cleaner water, as the water spends longer in the filter than water forced through by water pressure or other means.

* We now carry the Imperial Model.  The Crown model can sometimes have long production backorders.  For this reason, we do not keep this item in stock and do not have the "add to cart" page for this item.  Please contact  if you are interested in this model, and we will do our best.


Choosing the Right Berkey® Size:

As a rule of thumb you will need two gallons per day per person for sustained use and 1/2 to one gallon per day per person for short-term emergency use.  The difference being that for sustained use more water is required for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and hygiene whereas for short-term emergency use, drinking water alone is calculated. Please make a determination as to the number of people within the group and whether or not the system will be used for sustained or for emergency use.  You might also want to consider taking several Sport Berkey® purification bottles if looking to use these systems in third world countries or for traveling/camping purposes.  These systems are very compact personal purification systems and were developed for use in third world countries. They often come in very handy when travel requires that you be away from the location of your larger purification system.


If You Live in Iowa:

Berkeys are not available in Iowa.  The Sport Berkey may be purchased.

If You Live in California:

Good news! Prior California regulations were incongruent and ambiguous.  As a result, Berkey Water Purification Systems (by company decision) had withdrawn California sales.  These regulations have been clarified and you may now purchase several (but not all) Berkey models if you live in California! 

You may purchase the following:

Sport Berkey (water bottle)

Go Berkey Kit (water bottle & 1 quart system)

Travel Berkey (1.5 gallon portable system)

Berkey Lite 2 element systems (with or without LED systems)

Black Berkey Elements (replacement elements)

Super Sterasyl Elements (ceramic replacement elements)

Replacement Parts

You  may not purchase Big Berkey, Royal Berkey, or the Imperial or Crown Berkey models at this time.  This is due to still-existing California regulations referring to "home units".
