The Best way to perfectly know that it's time to change the filters is to do the Red Food Coloring Test.
2) What is the Red Food Coloring Test?
Please note that this test only works for the Black Berkey Purification elements alone, and no other filter elements in that matter. The Red Food Coloring Test is a standard procedure to do in order to see and determine if your water filters are effectively working or not. You can perform this right after purchasing the product and every after reaching the limit of filtered water by your chosen Berkey Water filtration system. In order to proceed with this test, you should purchase and have artificial Red Food Coloring that uses reds FD&C 40 and/or 3. There are other kinds of food coloring in the market, but the red food coloring substance is the best recommended one in order to determine the accuracy of your Black Berkey Purification elements. For the reason that, there are other food coloring products that are highly safe for consumption, but passes through the Berkey filters easily. So, you might think that your filters are defected, but as a matter of fact, they are not. It is recommended to use red food coloring for this test.
3) Steps on how to perform the Red Food Coloring Test?
1. First, empty your upper or lower chamber. Also, remove the PF-2 filters if there are any installed.
2. In the lower chamber, place an empty and clean glass under each Black Berkey Purification Element.
3. Fill up the upper chamber with water.
4. For every one gallon of water, put in 1 teaspoon of red food coloring. So, if you poured 2 gallons of water, put 2 teaspoons of red food coloring as well.
5. Leave it for about 6-11 minutes.
6. After, check and see if the both or either of the glasses contains any red or pinkish mixture. If it is clear, then the Black Berkey elements are working or is still okay, if there both or any of the glass has red or pinkish mixture then it must be both or the respective filter element is defected (if purchased newly) or needs replacement already (if already owned for a specific amount of time).
