How Long Do They Last? One set of Black Berkey Purification Elements can filter up to a whopping 22,712 litres of water!
May of our customers perfer to think of this in how many times can i fill my unit before i need to replace the filters? Obviously it depends on the capacity of the unit and on our product pages for each unit there is a calculation for how many times you can fill the unit before you need to replace the Black Berkey Puurfication Elements.
It is also easy to work out yourself, For Example. the Big Berkey unit holds 8.5L in one fill so divide 22,712 litres (life expectancy of the Black Berkey Elements) by this capacity 8.5L and you get 22,712/8.5= 2672 Fills. So a new set of Black Berkey Purification Elements will last up to 2672 Fills in a Black Berkey Unit.
These numbers are based on filtering clear tap water, the filters may not last as long when filtering water containing sediment, or other clogging impurities. Occasional Cleaning will help prolong your Filters life and also keep the ideal flow rate.
