What are the differences between the Doulton Sterasyl, the Super Sterasyl and the Ultracarb? [VIDEO]

A Doulton Water Filter is an excellent investment.

In this article, you will learn the differences between the Doulton Sterasyl, Doulton Super Sterasyl and the Doulton Ultracarb. These are the three most popular products in the Doulton ceramic cartridge range.

It’s essential to know the differences so you can purchase the right one for your situation.

Doulton Sterasyl Cartridge

The Sterasyl has black end caps, and the outside of the cartridge is ceramic. This cartridge is excellent for stopping bugs and sediment in rain water and untreated water. It’s a very fine cartridge with 0.05 microns. It’s much lighter than the Super Sterasyl cartridge because it’s just the outer casing that is ceramic.

The Sterasyl is really just a sediment cartridge, although it's a very fine sediment cartridge, and it'll stop bugs and bacteria.

The Sterasyl cartridge is a high-quality sediment cartridge that stops the bugs and is excellent on rainwater because it could last up to three years. In contrast, most sediment cartridges are usually finished by 12 months.

If needed, you can scrub it on the outside any time the flow rate slows down.

Doulton Super Sterasyl Cartridge

Moving on to the Super Sterasyl.

It looks the same but is heavier due to the carbon inside. This cartridge is more often used in the city or when you might want to get some of the chlorine out of the water. It has the same microns inside the cartridge and stops any bugs or bacteria from living in or on the cartridge.

Once the water flows through the ceramic on the Super Sterasyl, it'll go through the carbon, and remove any chlorine, polish the water up and make it very nice and tasty to drink.

The Super Sterasyl is great on rainwater because it will also remove herbicides and pesticides.

Doulton Ultracarb

The Doulton Ultracarb has the same ceramic outer casing as the Sterasyl, carbon on the inside like the Super Sterasyl, and heavy metal removal media in the centre core.

That’s why you’ll notice that the Doulton Ultracarb is the heaviest of them all, and it’s going to remove the most contamination from the water.

The Doulton Ultarcarb is the best of the lot.

Doulton Water Filter Cartridges

Doulton ceramic filters have been around since 1826 and are great for chlorinated town water or rainwater. They do not have test results for chloramine water, so if you are on the east coast of Australia, we recommend going with a water filter that removes chloramine.

If you are on the East Coast of Australia, you might like to check out the Ultrapure range instead.
