G'day folks, Rod from My Water Filter here today, and what we're gonna do is just a cartridge replacement for the Doulton Twin Benchtop with Double Carbon. So she's a great little filter this one, makes very sweet, tasty water with all that carbon in those systems, and what we're gonna do is show you how we'd go about it. So the very first thing that we're gonna do, this system is set up, it's been here for a year and it's time to replace the cartridges. So what we're gonna do is just have a quick look at the cartridges. Here at My Water Filter, whenever your product arrives to you, even if you're not gonna install it immediately, within a week, we need you to get the product and inspect it, and if there's any cracks, defects, problems, issues, breakages, please let us know ASAP.

That's exactly what I'm doing here now. This is the Doulton Ultracarb Cartridge for position one. I'm just casting my eyes up and down this cartridge, making sure it's not broken, everything's perfect, it's in good condition and ready to go. Screw the ends, make sure it's alright. Washers on the ends are okay, we're happy. Hole in the end, alright, no worries. That Doulton is in good condition, we're happy to go. Same thing, here's our carbon.

These can get broken too, okay? Anything can get broken if something heavy enough lands on it. So we just run our eyes up and down, give it a screw, make sure she's good, she's in one piece, washers are happy on each end, lovely stuff, good to go. This one can sit here for a minute. Same thing, normally you'd get the water filter that's been installed, lay it on the towel, as you can see I've got a towel down already, and we're gonna put the housing tool over the top of it. The housing tool does have Open and Close on it, but remember, the Open and Close, watch which way the arrow goes, and then the Open and Close goes down, over the top of the housing as you install it. These are an Australian housing, in that it's got a right-handed thread, so turn to the right to make it go tight. Today, we're gonna undo and remove the housing. So we're gonna turn it anti-clockwise, looking down on top of the system. Lay it on the towel, put a bit of weight on the top, and we crack the first one, and we crack the second one.

They come open pretty easy, because we've already had them apart. But if this is your one at home, don't do 'em up too tight is what I'm sayin'. Screw 'em up, get your housing tool, and just nip 'em up a little bit, that's good enough. You don't have to wrench 'em up, wrench 'em up, wrench 'em up with this tool. Housing's loose, and we'll take this housing off. This is our Doulton Cartridge, I've already pulled the other cartridge out earlier. Here we go, to put it in. We need the hole going down, into the headcap. In bench top water filters, the cartridges go in upside down. So you look for the hole in the cartridge, because there's only a hole in one end, not a hole in both ends. That hole goes down into the headcap, I hold the top of the cartridge so we don't knock it over. You do need to treat the ceramic cartridges like an egg, they will break if you drop them. So we screw this one up, we'll just screw it up nicely by hand now, off with the carbon cartridge, in with our carbon, sit it in there. Beautiful.

The carbon cartridge has got a hole straight through the middle, so it can go any way, up or down, it doesn't matter. Sit him on, tool on, nip him up. Same again, nip him up, and we're good to go. Now with this system, ceramic on the outside of the Doulton Cartridge, carbon on the inside, we wanna give 'em a flush. Any new water filter cartridge requires a flush, no different here. The new cartridges are in, we turn on the water, we fill up the housing, the water's gonna pour out. It'll be black to start with 'cause we've got a couple of carbon cartridges in there. So you can take that black water, and tip it on the garden or wherever you like, but we wanna give this filter a good flush for at least five minutes. Nothing less, a good five minutes flush, into a bucket, on the garden, save the water, and then after that period of time, she's good to go and drink out of. Failing that, you can wait till the next morning, 12 hours, give the carbon a bit of time to swell, now that it's wet and activate, and then give it a flush for three minutes the next morning, the next day. Once your cartridges have been in there for a while, just give it another flush.

Once you've done that, get a glass of water and have a drink, and I'm sure it'll be beautiful tasting water out of these water filters. Any dramas, or anything's not working as it should, please give us a call, one of the team would love to hear from you. But failing that, it's pretty simple, the video should help, Thanks for watching today, and good luck to you. Thanks very much.
