Approximately 50,000 liters (13,000 U.S. gallons), depending on water quality. Flow rate can be renewed by simply running a brush over the outer surface. Approximately 100 cleaning cycles are possible. A measuring gauge checks minimum diameter of the element and indicates when replacement is necessary.
