How many gallons will they filter? I don’t see that. On another site they said the Berkey Royal will filter 12,000 gallons, but they didn’t sell the Berkey Light.

Hi Kate,

Each Black Berkey Purification Element will purify 3000+ gallons of water.

If you put 4 elements in a Royal Berkey (for example,) you’ll get 12,000 gallons of pure water from them.

I hope that helps!

I have water softner installed, thus the tap water I get is softened. Some say softened water is not safe to drink due to sodium content – Does the Berkey filteration process make this Softened water safe to drink?
