Sport Berkey Overview

The Sport Berkey is the ideal Water Bottle With Filter.  It is a 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.  Excellent as a travel, camping and emergency water filter.

What Customers Say About the Sport Berkey Water Bottle

“We went as a team to very remote islands in the South Pacific. It was a huge challenge in many areas!

There were 13 in our team, and because we had a Berkey Water Filter for many years, we suggested our team use their Sport Berkey Water Bottle Filter. Everyone agreed.

We were 3 months on outreach, others went on for close to an extra month elsewhere.

During that time, not one of our team got sick, considering we were scooping from old cracked concrete tanks with slimy leaves and sticks, fallen fruit, sand, all manner of debris, along with wells and the odd stream.

We can highly recommend all the Berkey Products, they are first class, safe and reliable. The filters are long lasting.

Conscious Water has given us great service and speedy delivery and takes time to answer any questions.”

– David and Beryl Balfour

Sport Berkey FAQ

How do I clean the bottle of my Sport Berkey® Portable Water Filter?
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, remove filter and fill the unit with either chlorinated bleach of 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water, or a 50/50 mix of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Rinse. Allow parts to dry thoroughly with cap removed. Re-assemble and seal in an air tight container if possible. Do not allow filter to freeze, do not place in microwave oven and do not run hot water through the filter. We recommend that the bleach used, not be scented or in any other way enhanced. If you are not aware, many bleaches today come with “other things” in them to provide a nice smell, etc. We don’t recommend these types of bleaches.

What is the capacity of the Sport Berkey®?
The capacity of the Sport Berkey® is 650 mls (22 oz). and the bottle will efficiently filter 160 refills of raw untreated water and 640 refills of municipally treated water. Always use the cleanest source water possible as the dirtier the water, the quicker the filter element will become clogged.

Can I clean the filter in my Sport Berkey® filtration bottle?
The Sport Berkey® filter is not cleanable. Replacement filters are available on this product page, see above.

What is the plastic composition of the Sport Berkey® components (bottle, cap & straw)?
The bottle is constructed from a non-leaching, LDPE #4 medical grade polymer, which is BPA Free. The cap is FDA HDPE and the straw is FDA PolyPro. Please note that the number imprinted on the bottom of the Sport Berkey® refers to a lot number and is not a recycle code.

Why do your instructions say : “Do not allow filter to freeze?”
We strongly advise against freezing your elements as a general rule of caution. We also advise against storing the elements (even unused) in sub-freezing climates. The concern with freezing the elements is that any cold or freezing water will expand inside in the element, thereby increasing the pore size and ruining the element. Whether the elements are unused or used and fully dried out, a small amount of moisture could still exist inside the element, especially in predominately humid climates. This moisture could expand inside the element and render them unusable. Please note that this recommendation applies to ALL our Berkey® elements, including the Sport Berkey® water filter bottle element. Freezing your element and rendering it unusable will also void your warranty coverage.

What is the maximum temperature that the Sport Berkey® can be stored at?
The maximum amount of heat the Sport Berkey® can withstand is 46.11 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Fahrenheit).

Can I filter boiling water through the Sport Berkey® for making hot tea?
Hot water can break down the element and compromise its efficiency, so we recommend that you first filter the source water through the Sport Berkey® then afterward boil the filtered water for your tea.

How do I remove mold and mildew from the straw in the Sport Berkey®?
This can occur on occasion. Typically, it means that the top & straw (and bottle) are in need of a good soapy cleaning. Follow standard cleaning procedures which are on the instructions that come with each bottle. In some cases, it may be necessary to soak the top/straw for a bit before cleaning, or use a fine brush in the straw. Typically soaking in soapy water or vinegar water takes care of any build-up inside the top/straw. Rinse thoroughly. Again, it is important to periodically clean the bottle, top & straw to help keep this from occurring in the future.

Comparison of Berkey® Purification to Reverse Osmosis and Distillation

Healthfulness of Reverse Osmosis and Distillation Based on current research, most health experts are no longer recommending drinking Reverse Osmosis or Distilled water on a long-term basis because these methods strip out all of the beneficial minerals from the water, making the water an acidic “hypotonic” solution. A chemist will tell you that when a hypotonic (de-mineralized) solution comes into contact with a “hypertonic” (mineralized) solution, the minerals within the hypertonic solution will transfer out of hypertonic solution and into the hypotonic solution until equilibrium is achieved. What this simply means is that when one drinks hypotonic water, the minerals in the blood and lymphatic system, which are hypertonic, transfer into the hypotonic Reverse Osmosis or Distilled water that is consumed and the minerals are flushed out of the body upon urination. In an effort to re-mineralize, the blood and lymphatic systems then begin to scavenge for minerals from other parts of the body, such as bones and other organs, and this process repeats itself every time de-mineralized hypotonic water is re-consumed. Several studies suggest that people who drink de-mineralized water (hypotonic) over a long period of time tend to be more prone to degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis. Berkey® Purification systems do not remove all of the beneficial minerals from the water, but they do extract harmful heavy metals such as lead and mercury as well as sedimentary minerals such as iron oxide. Therefore, the TDS reading will not typically change much unless there are a lot of heavy metals or sedimentary minerals within the source water. Pathological Removal Capability of a Reverse Osmosis System Reverse Osmosis does not remove pathogenic bacteria and that is why it is often necessary to add an additional UV light to the system. However, the UV sometimes does not kill all the bacteria because any turbidity in the water can create shaded spots, preventing some bacteria from being exposed. Typically, the UV is installed before the bladder tank; however it is in the bladder tank that bacteria usually colonize. Therefore, if the bladder tank is not sterilized on a regular basis, it becomes a source for bacteriological contamination that is never exposed to UV. Additionally, the carcasses of the dead bacteria remain within the drinking water with a Reverse Osmosis system, whereas they are removed by the Black Berkey® Purification elements. Tankless Reverse Osmosis Systems While some newer tankless Reverse Osmosis systems have overcome the issue of bacteria colonizing in the bladder tank, these systems have their own set of inherent issues, including: TDS Creep:  without a flush tank, the initial water coming out can taste horrid, due to increased TDS in the water. High Failure Rate:  some tankless models have already been removed from the market, due to numerous issues, including high rates of failure. Noise: depending on the specific model and features, some units are extremely noisy to operate. Excessive Water Waste:  this is a problem with both standard and tankless Reverse Osmosis systems. Cost: with multiple membranes being used, the overall cost per gallon, can be even more expensive than older style Reverse Osmosis systems. Cost  Reverse Osmosis systems typically are the most expensive due to the cost of the system and the additional expense to have the system plumbed in. Next in cost would be a Distillation unit. A Berkey® system will typically be the least expensive of the three. With respect to cost per gallon of water, calculated upon the cost per gallon for replacement filters and energy costs, Distillation systems and Reverse Osmosis systems that are properly maintained typically cost between 35-65 cents per gallon. A Berkey® system typically costs about 1.8 cents per gallon. Maintenance  Reverse Osmosis systems can have up to four filter elements, with each needing to be changed at differing intervals from four months up to two years. This requires that the water pressure be shut off and part or all of the system be disassembled for maintenance. Additionally, the bladder tank should be washed with a chlorine solution at six-month intervals to kill any colonizing bacteria. Distillation systems need to be soaked and cleaned with vinegar solution to remove the scale, typically after each gallon or two. All Berkey® systems are easy to disassemble and clean. Typically the lower chamber should be washed in ordinary dishwater once per month.

  1. Christina W.

    Ordered and received 2 sport berkeys. Had a little problem with one unit. Called Scott back. He gave some tips that might solve the problem. That didn’t work. Called Scott back, he gave me the simple routine to have a new one on it’s way. Impressed with the berkeys but equally so I am impressed with the service. New berkey showed up in a couple of days. Thanks Scott.

  2. Fred

    Great water taste! I highly suggest it. Cheaper than similar product from other companies I looked for.

  3. Lindsay Catling

    Hey Scott!
    So, I used the Sport Berkey the whole time while I was in Orlando and the water it provided was definitely delicious! For some reason Orlando water is veryyy sulphur-y but with the bottle that taste and smell was completely eliminated – YAY.

  4. Kate

    Purchased this bottle to take with me to all the sporting functions I play in through out the year eg. squash , baseball. tennis tournaments. Not sure of the water quality at some locations so rather than carry 5-6 water bottles with me thought I would try it. Found it very hard to drink from. After a squash game, usually huffing and puffing and this bottle requires quite a bit of effort to suck up through the filter into the straw. Was not getting enough water fast enough. Will go back to filling my water bottles with my Berkey water. However looking forward to taking this bottle on vacation in Mexico.

  5. Vicki Petras

    I just purchased one of these as a Christmas gift for a relative who is interested in preparedness. This will be a great addition to her arsenal of ‘bug out’ supplies. It will also come in handy for her long walks with her dogs in remote nature trails where replenishing her drinking supply could be an issue. I received shipment of it promptly. As an owner of both a Big Berkey and a Travel Berkey, for several years, I have full confidence that this item will be as reliable, effective and convenient as my own. I was pleased with all aspects of this item when I inspected it upon receipt of shipment.

  6. Tim Larkin

    My partner and I have fell in love with hiking and camping in the back county this past summer. We went on a 2 day trip with some friends and really put these water bottles to the test. It was so nice to not have to carry water with you, we would empty our bottles until we reached a lake or creek, drink our fill. and then empty them again. Needless to say our friends were quite jealous!

  7. Marie

    Purchased four Sport Berkey’s to use when camping and traveling, but find myself using them everyday at the gym and at yoga classes. Very easy to use and practical. Would highly recommend this product.

    Purchased 2–active family goes for long hikes, runs and camping trips. Perfect item to bring along to save weight and to ensure you always can get clean water when you need it. A must for active families. Good size bottle. I like the circle hook at top for hanging and how it hides the straw. Easy to use and more important tasty safe clean water!!

  9. Gisele

    After purchasing the Royal Berkey earlier this summer, I ordered two Sport Berkey’s this fall – one for my son for his birthday and one for myself. I swiped a couple of spoonfuls of the alkalizing stones from my Royal Berkey and now feel confident that I am drinking healthy alkaline water even when I am not at home. I have rosacea and have just recently discovered that rosacea is caused (or at least enhanced) by an acidic imbalance in the system. I am hopeful that drinking only alkaline water will help to restore the proper balance in my system and help to lessen the symptoms that affect me. I too found that priming the filter was difficult so I resorted to sucking the water out of the filter for the first time and then spitting it into the sink. It may not have been pretty but it worked!!! I will likely be ordering more Sport Berkey’s in the future as gifts. At $55.00 (including a spare filter) it is a very affordable and practical gift for anyone.

  10. Kassandra Wilkey

    We bought two of these back in January when we travelled down south. Recently my brother who is in the Military told me about how he had been in the bush for 2 days without safe drinking water. Immediately I said to him, “I have the solution so that never happens to you again!” and I handed him one of our Sport Berkey water bottles. I said find a stream and fill it up! He was so happy to receive that gift that I know he would agree on a 5 star rating. Now I just need to get another one for my husband!
    A necessity for camping, hiking, travelling and I realized for all military personal too!

  11. Ken Hall

    Since we can’t take our Imperial Berkey on the road,everyone in the family now has a
    sport Berkey. The same great tasting water where ever we go and no plastic bottles.
    Makes a great gift to introduce family and friends to the Berkey filter system.
    This is good news you should spread!

  12. David Hooper

    We went through the bottled wate phase, then the bring water from home in a thermos to work phase, and finally we found a portable water bottle that filters water whereever we are. I take mine to school and fill it from the tap in my classroom and know I am enjoying water that quenches my thirst and hydrates me. Great product. When we travel it comes with us in the car as well.

  13. Andrea

    Once I discovered how much I LOVED our Big Berkey, it was a no-brainer to purchase a Berkey water bottle for the times when we were away from home. It has been fabulous – it’s such a great feeling to know that we are drinking good quality water. Our Sport Berkey Water Bottle is one of the first things I pack every time that we are taking a trip into the city, or traveling!

  14. Ian Jones

    Great for travelling on the road, especially once you are spoiled with using the Berkey at home! Highly recommended!

  15. Jordan Temple

    I loved my first Berkey sport water bottle so much that I went and purchase 4 more to give out as presents for my family. When you look at the other filtered water bottles available and factor in cost, effectiveness and life expectancy plus how easy it is to set up and use. The Berkey stands out as an exceptional value.

  16. Nathan

    I have been looking for a travel water filter bottle for a couple years now and the Berkey is definitely the one to get, I use it around Ontario lakes and rivers when hiking and biking as well as when traveling out of the Country, I have frequently frank from lakes, and rivers with this and have never had an issue, in fact the water tastes great!

  17. H. Fischer

    Finally a product that any hiker/outdoors person would love to have – X-mas is coming so order a few. Any water source becomes drinkable – a highly desirable option when out in the bush . The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that you do have to squeeze the water bottle quite firmly to force the liquid through the filter.

  18. Danielle Groves

    We purcahsed this bottle for our honeymoon in Algonquin and fell in love with it instantly!! The price-point was excellent but the best part was being able to just dip the bottle into any lake or pond we were canoeing through and be drinking the most delicious, fresh water. We one day hope to purchase a bigger Berkey for our house and family cottage!

  19. Jason

    Great use for emergency situations, and confident that this bottle will save lives of me and my close friends and family if the time comes. A good product to carry on your person when going to ANYWHERE with unreliable water sources, or traveling to places where you can’t get great quality water. I ordered this product and will probably get more just to stock as backups.

    The only reason I didn’t give. 5 stars is because the actual bottle (not the filter aspect) doesn’t seem to be the greatest – when I am squeezing the bottle, there tends to be some leakage from the top. I have tried closing the lid tighter but the problem still persists. This may just be my particular bottle, hopefully the next one I get will not have the same issue.

  20. Ian Jones

    Hi Scott.

    I just want to say thank you for the prompt and courteous service we received from you. Your online service showed great attention to detail and we appreciated the personal email replies.

    To complement our Imperial Berkey (Best purchase we made all year!), we decided to get a filtering shower head and ‘Sport’ Berkey. We immediately noticed an improvement in the water quality of the shower, and feel noticeably better after each use. Since I am on the road often, I am happy to have access to the better tasting and healthier water the Berkey systems offer while travelling. Going through airport security is a breeze, as the water can be filled up afterwards, avoiding the ‘liquids and gels’ restriction. By using this instead of buying water at the gate, the bottle paid for itself after a few trips.

    Thanks again for all your help,

    Ian Jones
    Barrie, ON

  21. Cathy Mines

    Fantastic to travel with my Sport Berkey! I was in and out of some places where the water was suspect to say the least, and I didn’t worry at all. The only problem I had was everyone that got tuned into my bottle wanted to drink out of it!
    Awesome product, fresh yummy water, and I’m taking my Berkey off to Guatemala in a month!
    All the best for a great day in health,
    Cathy

  22. Stephanie Miller

    We are avid paddlers and our family just used Berkey Sport water bottles for the first time this summer. This was our first trip where I can honestly say that we were Well Hydrated- and as a result, WAY less grumpy and WAY more energized all day long. Any time of day on this trip – we would simply fill our bottles in the river and drink until we were satiated. It was wonderful! Our 2 daughters (age 3 and 5) loved to dip the Berkey into fun places along our trip and would heartily “drink the rapid” or “drink the waterfall” or “drink beside the beaver dam” (gasp!!)- this was a great way to keep them drinking!! We will definitely use the Berkey Sport Bottles on all future canoe trips. In fact, we will use these bottles ANYTIME we are camping or playing near water!

  23. Karli Craig

    My husband and I gave birth to our first child, a baby girl, on April 17th and it was such an amazing experience. We packed our Berkey Sport water bottle in our hospital bag and we can’t tell you how useful it was during the labour and our stay in the hospital. Wonderfully pure water, super convenient, easy to carry, does not leak and yes, Easy! We recommend to all and continue to use ours daily.

  24. Kassandra Wilkey

    The Berkey Sport Water Bottle has made me feel so much better about traveling outside Canada with my children. I feel confident that I will have pure filtered water wherever we are which is a huge relief traveling with kids!! Their health and safety is the most important and you have given me peace of mind with your products!!
