Select Water Filters Now Available in California
Sales of select Berkey water filtration systems are now available to customers in the state of California. For several years, Berkey Water Filters could not be shipped to California residents. This limitation was due to somewhat ambiguous regulations that went into effect January 1, 2010. The regulations were not only vague but the related requirements also made it very costly, if not impossible, for smaller companies to comply with the regulations that were unique to the state of California.
Recently, the state of California further defined the requirements that pertain to this regulation. While certain California regulations still prohibit residential filtration systems that make health –related claims, such as pathogenic bacteria removal, it was recently determined that the regulations do not apply to water filtration systems used in outdoor and sporting applications. The systems that fall under this category and are therefore now available to California residents are:
- Sport Berkey®
- Go Berkey®
- Travel Berkey®
- Berkey Light™ (with or without LED lights)
Replacement elements will also be available for these systems as well. Feel free to contact Berkey Filters Customer Service with any questions or concerns.
