The Berkey Base™ elevates gravity purification systems enabling containers to fit under the spigots. This allows a gravity purifier to be used directly on the ground or situated anywhere on a flat surface and eliminates the requirement that the purifier be placed on the edge of a table or counter. The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system for use with the Big Berkey™ and Berkey Light™ systems. This allows optimum use during no or low light conditions. Used with transparent Berkey Light™ systems, the light shines through the water causing the droplets of filtered water to light up and glow. The resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere.
The eight LED lamps within the base are the perfect night light and the WHITE LED’s are bright enough to provide a long lasting low energy source of reading light, emergency light, a camping light as well as a beacon for water in no or low light conditions. The COBALT BLUE LED’s are beautiful and are a real eye catcher. The Blue LED base is designed with beauty in mind and is for use in situations where it is desirable to enhance the ambience of the surrounding atmosphere. Additionally, the LED lamps are directional so the base can also be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.
Please note that the LED versions of the Berkey Base™ do not have an effect on the purification process.
Because the Black Berkey™ Purification Elements are so powerful they can remove red food coloring from water. This allows you a method to test your system periodically. We recommended that the Red Food Color Test be run after new systems are first assembled. We also recommend that they be tested every 3 to 6 months thereafter, after your system has been in storage or before taking your system on a trip or out of the country, in order to insure your system is functioning properly.
