Does the Berkey Shower Filter remove lead and heavy metals?
The Berkey Shower Filter does not remove lead or heavy metals. It does reduce free chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, scale and iron oxide (rust water) and eliminates dirt and odors. It also effectively reduces damage to hair and skin.
What is the maximum water temperature at which the shower filter should be used?
The Berkey Shower Filter’s maximum operating temperature is rated at 120°F. However in order to avoid scalding in the shower, we recommend the temperature not exceed 110°F.
Can the Berkey Shower Filters be used intermittently or do they stop working after drying out?
The Berkey Shower Filter testing is based on continual usage. The process of oxidation occurs once the filter is activated by water and thus will lose its filtering capability over time. If your shower filter has not been used in a few months, we recommend that it be replaced.
What is the size of the thread on the Berkey Shower Filter™ ?
The thread size is a half inch (NPT). This stands for National Pipe Thread.
What is the maximum PSI that the Berkey Shower Filter™ can withstand?
60 PSI is the maximum amount of pressure a Berkey Shower Filter™ can withstand.
