Sport Berkey® Water Bottle Overview
- Holding Capacity : 22oz
- Material: BPA/BPS FreeLow Density Polyethylene
The 22oz. Sport Berkey Portable Water bottle is the ideal choice for a personal traveling companion – featuring Berkey’s exclusive IONIC ADSORPTION MICRO FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY.
When and Where Can You Use the Sport Berkey Water Bottle?
The theory behind this innovation is simple. The Sport Berkey water 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.
What Technology is Behind the Sport Berkey® Water Bottle?
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.
How Does the Sport Berkey Water Bottle Work?
As the Sport Berkey water 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 Berkey water 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 water bottle 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!
- SQUEEZE OPERATION
- DO NOT carry bottles containing liquid in bags to help prevent accidental opening.
- Leak-resistant NOT leak-proof
Maintenance and Storage:
The Sport Berkey water bottle’s Portable Water Filter has a storage shelf life of 50 years. When you will not be using the system for an extended period of time, it is important to remove the filter. With the filter removed, flush the bottle with one of the following:
• 1/4tsp non-scented/non-enhanced* chlorine bleach per one half gallon of water
• 50/50 mixture of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and water.
Once the Berkey water bottle has been flushed, rinse with water. Allow all parts to thoroughly air dry before re-assembling. Seal the bottle in an airtight container if possible.
Do not allow the filter to freeze. Freezing 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)
**Please note that effective March 24th, 2016, the Sport Berkey® Water Filtration Bottle was updated. The new element is the same except that it has a larger tapered straw connection. The functionality of the Sport Berkey® is unchanged. If you purchased your Sport Berkey® Water Filtration Bottle prior to March 24th, 2016 and want to order a replacement filter(s) you will need to order a new bottle as the new and old systems are not compatible (i.e. the new replacement filters will not fit the older model Sport Berkey®bottle).
