by: Greenshopper (Jersey shore)
"This AquaCera water filter was very easy to install. It doesn't take up too much room on the counter. The water pressure is quite good. I wish that the spout extended out a little more, but I can work around that."

Due to filtration of particulates and contaminants from the water during use, the flow of the water from the filter may deteriorate over a period of time. To restore the water flow to its normal level, simply remove and clean by scrubbing the surface of the filter with an abrasive non detergent scouring pad. The reduced flow of water would be the indicator that it is time to clean your filter. The cleaning frequency will depend upon the quality of the water supply. Depending on use and water conditions the CeraMetix filter should be replaced every 6 months.
AquaCera HCP housing and CeraMetix™ filters are manufactured in the USA.
