These cartridges are available in a range of different micron sizes and dimensions to fit any size water filter, whether it's a benchtop, undersink, or whole house water filter system.
What makes these filters create wonderful water is because it traps all the tastes, colours, and odours from the water, including chlorine and other contaminants introduced into our drinking water supplies.
Creating the Best Water You Can
They not only make the water taste great, but they protect you and your family from drinking the disinfectants, herbicides, pesticides and other chemicals that our bodies were just never meant to consume.
Because water is such a vital part of our lives, this makes the cour product an essential part of the filtration process for healthy living and great tasting water so you and your family will love drinking the water that comes straight out of your kitchen tap.
Cartridge Replacement Period
These Filter Cartridges have a six to 12-month cartridge replacement period depending on your water quality. So let's take a close look at the Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridge. It is made up of activated coconut carbon, compressed into a carbon block form specific to the micron size required.
The micron size is hard to see from the naked eye, but what you need to know is, the smaller the micron size, the more chlorine and contaminants it will trap and the more protection it will provide. Carbon block cartridges come in a range of different micron filtration sizes. Generally, a one-micron size is great for benchtop and under sink systems.
Choosing the Right Micron Size
Five micron is the most common for whole-house systems. The most commonly used carbon block cartridge sizes are 10 inches by 2.5 inches, which will fit into most benchtop and under sink water filter systems, and 20 inches by 4.5 inches, which will fit most large whole-house systems. They also come in a nine-inch by 2.5 inch and other sizes smaller than that for benchtop and under sink water filters, and they come in a 10 inch by 4.5 and a 20 inch by 2.5 for smaller whole-house systems.
Get a Good Measure
To find out what size cartridge you have, simply remove the carbon block cartridge from your current water filter system and measure the height and diameter. It's always best to remove it from your water filter to check just in case you have a uniquely-sized carbon block cartridge. Just select the size on the My Water Filter website, and we will be able to help you with replacing your carbon block cartridge whenever it is required or the replacement period is up. Generally, carbon block water filters have a six to 12-month cartridge replacement period depending on your water quality. When you purchase your cartridges through My Water Filter, you will automatically be notified via text when your cartridges need to be replaced, so you don't even need to remember. They are very easy to replace.
Simply remove the cartridge housing that holds your filter cartridge, remove the cartridge, replace with the new cartridge, and screw the cartridge housing back on and you’re done. If your water flow from your water filter starts to slow, it could be a sign that your carbon block cartridge is blocking up. To ensure it is the carbon cartridge that is blocked, simply remove the carbon cartridge, replace the housing without the carbon cartridge inside. If your water flow is returned to normal, then your carbon cartridge is blocked and needs to be replaced.
This can happen at any time if the water board flushes their pipes, which is an excellent reason to have a sediment cartridge before your carbon cartridge, to protect your carbon cartridges in your system, your health, your home, and your appliances. That's it from me folks for this video for the carbon block cartridge. They are an excellent cartridge that makes great-tasting water and provide unmatched protection for you and your family from the chlorine and other chemicals found in our water supplies today. Enjoy.
