This is actually an “Ionic absorption Micro Filtration System” offering an ion charge which increases the absorption rate and effectiveness to the micron level. This technology is highly regarded worldwide yet it looks just like a sports water bottle.
It can be refilled 640 times from a municipal water supply and 160 times from questionable water sources such as lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries. This unit has been tested in accordance with EPA Protocol for microbiological Purifiers and ANSI/NSF 53 adapted for sport bottles.

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™ Portable Water Filter offers a convenient and portable filtration system using medical grade technology.
Care and Use
Fill the Sport Berkey™ Portable Water Filter 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 Filter bottle is now ready for use. Enjoy!
Maintenance and Storage
The Sport Berkey™ Portable 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 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water. Allow to dry thoroughly with cap removed. Re-assemble and stow. Do not allow Filter to freeze, do not place in microwave oven and do not run hot water through the Filter.
