How do I store my Black Berkey® Purification Elements?
If you are going to be leaving the system unattended for 3-4 days or less, remove the elements from the top chamber and drain out any water within them. Once drained, place them in a sealable bag while the carbon is still damp and force out any air in the bag. Store the elements in the front of your refrigerator to maintain freshness while not exposing them to the colder temperatures in the back of the fridge. Store the purifiers this way for no more than two weeks. Re-prime the elements before reinstalling them in your Berkey® System.
If you will be storing your elements for more than 3-4 days, remove the purifiers and thoroughly dry them. You can do this by either placing them on a windowsill that’s exposed to sunlight for 1-2 days, or by drying them with the Black Berkey Primer™. Once they are bone-dry, store the purifiers in a sealable bag at room temperature. The elements will have an indefinite shelf-life as long as they are stored this way. Re-prime the elements before reinstalling them in your Berkey® System.
How do I know when my Black Berkey® Purification Elements need to be replaced?
Black Berkey®Purification Elements can last up to 6,000 gallons per pair of elements. You can estimate your usage by calculating how many times you refill your system a week and multiplying that by how many gallons your system holds.
Why aren’t my Black Berkey® Purification Elements letting any water through?
It’s most-likely that the purifiers need to be cleaned or primed properly. This can be done by scrubbing the elements with a Scotch-Brite pad (or something similar) under running water and then re-priming them.
