Good day, folks. Rod from My Water Filter here today. What we're gonna do is just have a quick look at the Australis Rose Ming Water Purifier. Okay, we'll just put it together, give you a look at the different cartridges that are available, have a look at the different taps that are available and just show you how we put it together.
Simple, simple. This is really basic water filtration but if you use a quality cartridge in these, they have got absolute ultimate water filtration and they create very, very good water. Okay, so here we have it. You can see it. This is the Rose Ming and it's all displayed here on the table. This is the base, all right, the stand.
That's gonna sit on the bottom and then that's what the water filter's gonna sit on. It gives you a little bit of elevation so then you can use the tap, turn the tap on, get your cup underneath it and we've got it operating and working, all right. So, first thing I'm gonna do is pick up this base just put it out of the road because I don't want to crack it or break it or anything like that and I suggest that you do the same thing, okay? So then, that brings us basically to part number two, which is the tank, the holding tank.
With the holding tank, we've got one hole in the bottom. This is where we're going to install the tap and then the top, obviously, where the top tank et cetera will go in a minute when we're ready. All right, so when you purchase just the standard Rose Ming like this one here, what you'll find is it just comes with a standard little tap, okay? Yes, they work okay. A good little tap, we don't have any troubles with them. We don't have to replace them all the time or anything like that but they are just a lightweight plastic tap, okay? Now, failing that one there, we've also got a good quality little stainless steel tap. Just a simple on-off, on-off. Good nub, good and strong, steel base, steel thread, good sized washers in it, okay. So, your choice and the stainless steel one probably is a lot more durable and longer lasting. What I'll do is just quickly show you how we're gonna put the taps in.
So, it's both the same principle with both of them. There's the tap and then there's the stem with the thread on it and these two washers. This black washer's already pushed on the front already. Here's the second black washer and we've got the nut to tighten it up with on the inside. Once again, we never have any trouble with any of these taps on any of these type of systems unless somebody doesn't tighten it up tight enough and a little drip of water can dribble out the bottom so you've just got to tighten it up a bit more. So, when you get it, get hold of the tap from the outside in and then push it through on the inside. Then, we'll get the washer first. Push the washer on the inside straight over that thread and then, from there, you're basically getting the nut and we're gonna screw the nut on, okay? So, just hang in there for a sec and that's basically it.
I'm just gonna screw it up, screw it up, screw it up til it's tight. Now, what I do is leave the tap at about nine o'clock, 10 o'clock on the face of the clock. Do the nut up tight on inside with your fingers, your hands, then you can just turn that tap a little bit and when you pull it up there and lock it at 12 o'clock, she's pretty well locked good and tight into position. Okay? So, that's that one there. The little plastic tap that comes with it standard when you buy it. I'll just pull that one out. Here we go, okay. I'll just leave that little fellow there for a second. Now, here's the stainless steel one, okay? It's stronger, basically changing from plastic to steel. So, the nut's off. It has a steel plate. Now, this steel plate can have some white colored plastic on it, so just be sure that you peel that off, okay. Then, we've got two washers in a row. Sometimes, you can pull the washer straight off, but, if not, you screw them off on the thread and it will come off on the end. No worries at all. That's us. We're gonna push the front washer forward so it's seated and fitted nicely into that front steel washer and there she is just all ready to go. Exactly the same principle as where we started with the plastic one. From the outside, we push it in.
The washer goes on first. Screw it on if you can't push it on. Pull that plastic off of the washer. Washer goes on, nut goes on, and we tighten him up. Now, with this one, same thing I do. I hold it here at about nine o'clock, tighten the nut up as tight as I can get it, then by the time I twist him up to 12 o'clock, it's getting pretty tight. If it does have a little wet patch or anything like that, put a tool or a spanner on the inside and just tighten the nut up the same as you tighten anything else up. It doesn't have to be super-tight. There's two really good silicone rubber seals on there, so you've just got to pull them together. It will stop the leak and it will it firm and you'll be all right. But, hand tight today for the purpose and we're good to go. Here's our little tap and she's installed. This is the holding tank, so once the water lands in the top tank, it will collect in the bottom.
This one will fill up. Turn the tap on, out flows our water. Everybody's happy. This is the top tank. As you can see, a little smaller and this top tank is just gonna sit straight there like that. They're an amazing process. So simple, but so good and creates such good quality water. The beauty of these, when you have a top tank that's able to insert inside the bottom tank, when you come and fill it up with water, and the water filters through, it's very easy to check and make sure it's full. You just lift the top lid and if there's room to put water in, you can just keep filling it up. It will never leak or anything like that. All the water's contained inside and they work very nicely.
So, with the top tank, as you can see, it's got the hole in the bottom there. That's gonna bring us to our cartridges. So, we've got two types come with the Rose Ming. This is the plain Australis one that would just come normally with the system. Great for rainwater, stuff like that. You can use them on government water. I've had no problems with it but I'll be honest with you, it just is not gonna give you the same contaminate protection that something like the UltraCeram is, okay? This cartridge here is made with KLT in England. They're an amazing company. We work closely with them. We've got more, better products coming. These cartridges are being upgraded all the time and there's better cartridges coming along all the time. So, I recommend the UltraCeram and 97% of flouride removed, et cetera, so they're really, really good.
So, what we'll do is we'll pull this cartridge out and show you how we install it and we'll be good to go. Okay, I normally try not to get my hands on the cartridge too much. Keep your fingers off it as best you can. Grab it around the bottom. As you can see, there she is now. They come in different shapes and sizes, these cartridges, but they're all exactly the same process. You've got a nut on the bottom and a washer or two, okay? So, we're just going to screw this nut off. Now, sometimes you'll get cartridges, ceramic cartridges, that will come with one washer and some will come with two. If you've got two, we put on on the cartridge. We're gonna put the cartridge through the hole. Then, we'll grab the other washer and put it on the bottom and then the nut's gonna tighten up, all right? We'll just tighten him up. If there's only one washer, put the washer on the inside, okay, then you'll do him up. So, on with the cartridge, tighten him up. It's as simple as that. We've now installed the cartridge into the Rose Ming.
Simple as that, okay? Now, just as a quick tip, what I would do before I installed that cartridge is to just rinse it under the kitchen tap. Turn the kitchen tap on, just rinse it. When they're made, they can have a little bit of ceramic powder on the outside from when they're made, so just give them a hose off and get rid of that. Then, we put it into the system here and we're pretty well ready to go. So, I'm just going to lift that over in here and put him in position and that's it. That's how it will be and that's how it will sit. The third part is our trusty old lid. And there we have it, okay? So, I'll just shift him up the road a little bit. We'll bring the base over. We'll put him in position.
And there we have it. We have fully assembled our Rose Ming. So, we'll get in here now and we'll fill the top tank up and just give it a little bit of time for that water to fill through. I would fill the top tank, drain it out. Fill, drain, fill, drain. Three times to give the cartridge a good flush. Every cartridge in the world needs a bit of a flush when it's brand-spanking new so give it a flush. Then, after the third time, I'd start to drink it. If you went to have a drink and you thought that it could do with a little bit more of a flush then by all means, drop another tank or two through, but if you're happy with it, you'd be good to go then and you'd go on.
Once the cartridges do get wet, they'll activate inside and you'll notice the taste of the water will improve over the next week to 10 days and then they'll really activate and settle in and then you'll be good to go with your cartridge for six to 12 months, depending on your water usage and what it is that is the life span of that cartridge. I'll just quickly give you a look at the UltraCeram cartridge here so you can see what it looks like. It is a very, very, very good cartridge, this one. There we have it, okay. Once again, as you can see, this only comes with one washer, so what we'll do is we'll put the washer on first, then we'll slip it through the top tank and we'll do this nut up from underneath.
Similar cartridge, a little bit different in size. It's a little larger but it fits inside nicely. Enjoy! Thank you very much.
