Viruses in the water can make you very ill, although many say they are not much of a problem in American and Canadian wilderness area; but I would advise you to be on the save side. FILTERS like this only remove the bacteria and protozoa; PURIFIERS either physically remove or deactivate the viruses also. see less

The ceramic filter is rated to last 13,000 gallons. Figure in the cost of filter replacements to get 13,000 gallons out of a different system, and it might not look so affordable.

The measuring gauge measures the ceramic filter element lifespan.
The ceramic filter element remains viable as long as it's WIDTH is greater than the span of the measuring gauge.

The measuring gauge measures the ceramic filter element lifespan.
The ceramic filter element remains viable as long as it's WIDTH is greater than the span of the measuring gauge.
Should the element be thinner, or the measuring gauge actually fit around the filter element, it is time to replace the filter element.
From product documentation accompanying product:
"CERAMIC CAPACITY
Ceramic capacity depends on water quality. The dirtier the water the more often you will ahve to clean the element. This reduces the capacity of approx. 13'000 gallons (50'000 liters). If the gap of the measuring gauge fits over the ceramic it is time to replace the filterelement. (Figure 2-2) Inspect the ceramic for cracks after cleaning, if you dropped the filter of if you had freezing temperatures. If the filterelement shows cracks it will no longer protect you from microorganisms and must be replaced." see less

Answer:
Nope, it's a ceramic filter and those are not capable of doing that. If you want one that does check out the Big Berkey on Amazon. I have it and this filter. Both have their uses but the big Berkey is more well suited for in home use.
