Replacement filter element for the 22 oz. Sport Berkey® Portable Water Bottle.
This is the factory original replacement for the filter in the Sport Berkey Water Bottle and has the same filtration medium as the larger Black Berkey Filter element. It will produce 100 gallons (640 refills) of filtered water before needing replaced. The filter takes only seconds to replace and requires no tools.
Fill the Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier with water, screw on cap and tighten securely to eliminate leaks. Flush water through filter by pulling down lever, so that straw is exposed, and squeeze water through filter & out the straw. Repeat this flushing process twice before drinking. This removes excess process dust from the filter. After 2 flushes, rinse the bottle & cap. Your sport berkey bottle is now ready for use.
The 22 oz Sport Berkey Portable Water Purifier 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 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water. Allow to dry thoroughly with cap removed. Re-assemble and stow. Do not allow sport berkey to freeze, do not place in microwave oven and do not run hot water through the filter.
Note: All contaminants that this filter has the ability to remove or reduce may not necessarily be in the user’s water supply.
**Please note that effective Sept 4th, 2015, New Millennium Concepts, Ltd has updated the Sport Berkey® Water Filtration Bottle. 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 Sept 4th, 2015 and want to order a replacement filters or caps 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)
