G'day, folks, Rod from My Water here.
These are Doulton UltraCarb ceramic candles. Just an amazing little invention. Doulton has been making these products for around 185 years. A couple of things to know; it's ceramic, and it'll break. Handle these products with care, especially during transport. It’s safe once inserted into your Water Filter.
The efficiency of this filter, 99.99%, the bacteria, cysts, and particles. You're not going to get much better than that. Long life, anti-bacterial action. One of the gold things about this filter, folks, is that it still retains the essential minerals.

So while it's taking the chlorine out, taking the heavy metals out, pesticides, herbicides, all the baddies out that we don't want to be drinking, it's still leaving the useful minerals in there.
The filter doesn't mess around with the pH levels, and if you've got pH 7 water coming out of your tap, you'll be drinking the same pH level.
Check for crack on your product. Make sure your washer's on the bottom, it's all in one piece, keep your hands off the candle surface.
There is silver embedded inside the ceramic, and it will stop any bacteria or anything browning, even for the duration of the life of your product, and it will look after it then.
Treat it with gently, like an egg, nice and gentle, and then once you get it in there, you'll be ready to go. And the water quality that comes out of these is just amazing. Thanks folks, good luck to you.
