Berkey has sat dry for about 6 months...

(1/2) > >>

So I have left my Berkey sitting on the counter and it has been dry for 6 months waiting for me to "clean" it.  I have reviewed how to clean the black elements, but do not see any instructions on cleaning a fluoride element.

Should I just take it as if it were brand new, and start from scratch or is there any other things I should be aware of?



I apologize that I havn't responded for so long, the PF2 fluoride filters cannot be dried as the media once dried, will not filter fluoride.  Please consider purchasing a new set of PF-2 Fluoride Filters.

So how long does it take those PF-2's to dry out?  It sometimes may be 3 days to a week before water is poured through the filters...

I apolgize for the huge delay in a response, the PF-2 filters dry out in just over a couple weeks.


Wow, I didn't even know this. I need to head on over to that directive21 for some more now. Mine has sat for months a couple times.
Glad you are back. Love my big Berkey.
