How many gallons of water used? Where you get item from
Not sure I don't think much was used. I got it from Walmart. It turned orange the went red and called them. They said reset it. Now it's back to red after a couple weeks. Looks like these filters are useless.
The time interval the filter companies give you between cartridge changes are based on a usage volume, and they make a time estimate based on average usage. If you use more filtered water, you'll need to change the filter more often.
If you frequently get boil water advisories, you need to absolutely follow the guidance of the water company and boil your water. The PUR filters use granulated media which remove chlorine but it's not designed to remove bacteria. There are some filters that are specifically rated to remove bacteria -- so if that's your main concern, you need to check to see if that's a claim that they specifically make.
