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 HCS housing and CeraMetix™ filters are manufactured in the USA.

The AquaCera HCS stainless steel countertop water filter has a modern stainless steel finish to coordinate with today's popular stainless steel kitchen appliances and decor. The HCS stainless steel housing is slim and compact (actually smaller than the HCP plastic model), so it doesn't take up much counter space. Installation is a cinch and within minutes you can start to enjoy safe, clean, great tasting drinking water in the comfort of your own home. The included CeraMetix™ filter is unique and highly desirable because it combines the added benefit of fluoride removal with all the benefits of a ceramic and carbon block water filter (such as the UltraCarb, CeraUltra, CeraCarb). Up until now, this level of filtration was only possible using a twin water filtration system. The AquaCera HCS stainless steel countertop water filter with CeraMetix™ filter offers the highest quality drinking water possible from a single stage filter.
