Sport Berkey Water Bottle
Berkey Sport Bottle
The Sport Berkey Portable Water bottle is the ideal choice for a personal traveling companion - featuring Berkey's exclusive IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY.
The theory behind this innovation is simple. The Sport bottle's filter is designed to reduce or remove many harmful contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote streams, lakes, stagnant ponds and sub-standard water supplies in foreign countries where regulations are non-existent or not enforced.
This superior technology used in the Sport Berkey portable water filter was developed, refined, and improved through investigative laboratory testing and field research. Our team of water filter experts, field engineers and research specialists have developed this purification process over countless hours of testing and research. The media contained in the water filtering element removes contaminants by the surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of molecules to the surface of the media.
As the Sport Berkey bottle is squeezed, the water is forced through the filter. The density and quality of media used determine the rate of adsorption. The time of exposure through the filter has been carefully calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals and pollution caused by industry and agriculture. The exclusive filter element of this Sport Bottle is composed of our exclusive proprietary "adsorbing" media that promotes IONIC "adsorption" of pollutants, such as cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, aluminum, mercury, and other dangerous heavy metals.
The "Tortuous Path" structure of the Sport Berkey's filter element gives it its unique characteristics. This filter is a true portable Water filter and uses medical grade technology to produce a convenient and portable water filtration system.
Care and Use
Pour water into the Sport Berkey and securely tighten the cap to eliminate leaks. Pull down the loop on the lid to extend the straw and squeeze the bottle. This will force water through the filter and the straw. Empty as much of the bottle as possible. Repeat this process two times . This process flushes manufacturing dust from the filter. After two flushes, rinse the bottle and cap. Your water bottle is now ready for use!
Maintenance and Storage of your Sport Berkey
The Sport Berkey Portable Water Filter has a storage shelf life of 50 years. When you are not going to use the filter for a long period of time, rinse and force a prepared solution (1/4 tsp. of chlorine bleach per 1/2 gallon of fresh water) through the water bottle. Set out with the cap off and allow to air dry before re-assembling and storing. Freezing a wet filter can damage the filter and will require replacement. This filter is not microwave safe and is not designed to filter water hotter than 95º F.
Water From Questionable Source: 160 Refills (25 gallons)
Municipal Water supply: 640 Refills (100 Gallons)
The Sport Berkey Water Filter is the ideal personal protection traveling companion - featuring the Ionic Adsorption Micro Filtration System. The theory behind this innovation is simple. The bottle's filter is designed to remove and/or dramatically reduce a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries where regulations may be sub-standard at best.
The Sport Berkey is ready to use in minutes.
The Sport Berkey is also easy to operate, clean, and maintain.
The Sport Berkey Water FIlter Utilizes: Ionic Adsorption Micro Filtration
This advanced technology was developed, refined, and proven through diligent, investigative research and testing performed by water purification specialists, researchers and engineers. The media within the filter element removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as "adsorption" which results from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. As the bottle is pressed, the source water is forced through the filter. The quality and volume of media used, determine the rate of adsorption. The flow rate or time of exposure through the filter has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by pollution from industry and agriculture. This exclusive filter element is impregnated with proprietary "absorbing" media that promotes ionic "absorption" of pollutants within the micro-porous element, such as aluminum, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, and other dangerous heavy metals.
The "Tortuous Path" structure of these pores gives it its unique characteristics. The Sport Berkey Water Filter offers a convenient and portable filtration system using medical grade technology.
Note: If using a source of water that might contain extreme bacteriological or viral contamination, it is recommended that two drops of plain chlorinated bleach or iodine be added to each refill before filtering. This will kill minute pathogens such as viruses. The disinfectant will then be filtered from the water entirely removing its odor, color and taste.
The Sport Berkey Water Filter eliminates or reduces up to 99.9% of the following contaminants and impurities:
Getting Started with the Sport Berkey
Fill the Sport Berkey Water Filter with water, screw on the cap and tighten securely to eliminate leaks. Flush water through the filter by pulling down the lever, so that the straw is exposed, and squeeze water through the filter and out the straw. Repeat this flushing process twice before drinking. This removes excess process dust from the filter. After 2 flushes, rinse the bottle and cap. Your filter bottle is now ready for use.
In the rare cases that the above does not get the Sport Berkey working please try the following.
Maintenance and Storage
The Sport Berkey Water Filter has a shelf life of 50 years. When the filter system will not be used for an extended period, flush the unit with a chlorinated solution of 1.25 ml. per 2 liters of water. Allow to dry thoroughly with cap removed. Re-assemble and stow. Do not allow filter to freeze, do not place in a microwave oven and do not run hot water through the filter.
Water from any source: Up to 160 refills Municipal Water/ Tap Water: Up to 640 refills
Sport Berkey Plastics Composition
The Sport Berkey is made of BPA-free plastics. The bottle is made of LDPE (low density polyethylene) plastic, the bottle cap is made of HDPE (high density polyethylene) and the straw is made of PP (polypropylene) plastic. All of these plastics are not known to leach any chemicals causing cancer or hormone disruption.
