The Go Berkey Kit is specifically designed for backpacking, hiking, camping, college environments, world travel (business or vacation), on your desk at work or any other on the go activity.
Included with this Go Berkey (1 Quart) system is a Sport Berkey portable water purifier bottle, a combination resulting in the ultimate in portable filtration versatility. The Sport Berkey is perfect for when you are out on the trail while the Go Berkey system is busy purifying a batch of water back at the campsite, lodge, etc. The Sport Berkey bottle can also be used to prime the Black Berkey Purification Element when water pressure isn't available.
As with all our water purification systems, the Go Berkey Kit is a must during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
The Go Berkey system uses the highly powerful black berkey filter that removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces unhealthy heavy metals such as lead and mercury. Like the other systems, this system is powerful enough to remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

The go berkey kit does not use a spigot given it's small size of being only 1 quart. You would simply drink the filtered water right out of the lower chamber itself, or pour it into a cup or your water bottle for hiking, etc. As for replacement filters, the black berkeys are the replacements:
And the sport berkey, replacement filters can be found here:
The filter used is the black berkey. Contaminants removal list on that page. http://www.bigberkeywaterfilters.com/black-berkey-filters-2.html The go berkey kit does not remove fluoride because the unit is too small to fit the secondary PF-2 fluoride filter. However, it does remove arsenic as the black berkeys remove that.
We have not tested the filters for birth control specifically, but the filters have performed very well at removing endocrine disruptions like BPA and various pharmaceuticals. This round of testing can be found here:
The PH will be dependent on the source water PH. The berkey filters do not add anything to the water to increase the PH, they only remove acidic components that can result in a PH increase. With that being said, we cannot provide a PH number for your as an end result for your filtered water. Most customers see a rise, but there is no guarantee.
