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 filter should be replaced once a year.
AquaCera HCS housing and CeraUltra™ filters are manufactured in the USA.

- Easy and affordable to maintain. Simply unscrew the housing, take out the filter and clean the surface with a scouring pad. The amount of gunk collected on the filter serves as evidence that the system is working properly. After around a year, depending on water conditions and usage, the filter should be replaced.
- Easy and simple to use. The diverter valve is of strong quality and makes it easy to change from unfiltered to filter water.
- Helps to save money and the environment by greatly reducing the need to purchase bottled water.
- More expensive then a countertop water filter with a plastic housing.

The AquaCera HCS stainless steel countertop water filter has a nice stainless steel finish to fit most kitchen decors and also features a nice slim, compact design so that it doesn't take up much counter space. The CeraUltra™ ceramic and carbon block filter is a new and improved alternative to the Doulton Ultracarb filter. When it comes to removing harmful contaminants, such as parasites, lead, chlorine and organic compounds, we love the CeraUltra™ filter. We are always impressed with the crisp, clean and healthy tasting water it provides.
