Does anyone have any experience with the Berkey Bottle??? I'm flying to India for a month later this week and have been contemplating investing in one for water purification. Does it remove pathogens??? My gut is telling me that if it removes minerals, it should remove pathogens too, but I'm a "Trust but verify." kinda guy.
Thanks for the input.
I have used Berkey for years and would suggest them anytime, anywhere, for any purpose. they are the BOMB for water purification.
My IT buddy spent 7 months there working for IBM and said there was no problem with the water but he was staying in the "good" part of the country. I can find out the area he was working in if it helps.

Montana sucks, tell your friends
We have the Big Berkey which is awesome (after the first few gallons - until then it does have chemical taste). Based on the company, I would trust their bottle filter although I would run at least 4-5 bottles through it before I went off to drink it.
I'll be working in Vijayawada in the Andhra Pradesh region. I'm anticipating that the hostel I'm staying at in the NRI facility. The website says there is a canteen, a mess hall, and a water filtration plant on site, but as the prepper in me says, "better safe than sorry."
