I’ve been using a Berkey for the last 1.5 years since I heard Jack Spirko talking about them, and refill ours every ~2 days... does that count? We switched from using an RO system for about 5 years, but all our drinking water and cooking water goes through the Berkey first. Can send pics of that right now, at work...
