| Generic Sport Berkey® Portable Water Filter bottle is the
ideal 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.
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 generic sport filtration portable water filter offers a convenient and portable filtration system using medical grade technology.
The Generic/Non-Labeled Sport Berkey® Portable Water Filter is identical in function to the Sport Berkey®
Portable Water Filter. It is primarily used for individuals,
missionaries and relief organizations that would prefer to economize.
Note: All contaminants that this filter has the ability to remove or reduce may not necessarily be in the user's water supply.

• Radiologicals: > 99.9%: Radon 222
• Heavy metals > 99.9%: Aluminum, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, and Mercury.
• Unpleasant taste and odors, cloudiness, silt, sediment and chlorine > 99.9%.

Care and Use:
Fill the Generic 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!

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