The Sport Berkey® Portable Water Filter bottle is convenient and provides on-demand water filtration for your commute, as part of an emergency kit, during recreational activities, or for everyday hydration!

chlorinated bleachThe Sport Berkey® has a shelf life of 50 years. When not in use for an extended period of time, use the following steps to maximize its storage and care:

  1. Remove filter and fill the bottle with chlorinated bleach of 1/4 tsp. per one half gallon of water, or a 50/50 mix of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.
  2. Rinse all parts with clean water.
  3. Allow all parts to dry thoroughly with cap removed.
  4. Re-assemble and seal in an air tight container if possible.

When using the recommended chlorinated bleach solution, use bleach that is unscented and not enhanced in any other way. This may be a little bit of a challenge due to so many bleach products now featuring “enhancements” to provide a nice smell, thicker concentration, etc. Enhanced bleaches are not recommended.

Do not allow filter to freeze, do not place in microwave oven, and do not run hot water through the filter.
