[VIDEO] Stefani 5L Terracotta Benchtop Gravity Water Purifier - Product Spotlight

Good day folks, Rod from My Water Filter here today and we're going to discuss the Stefani 5 Litre Terracotta water Purifier.

Who Should Get It

It's best for single people or people in flats units, small areas. It has a base, lid, system and the cartridge inside. This has a reliable green cartridge, little float valve, a tap, and some do's and don'ts instructions.

What You’re Getting

It has a hole in the bottom for the top tank and the bottom tank base—all in one piece. The float valve goes in the bottom of the cartridge. It stops the water coming through when it’s full. Provided with a booklet, you can see plenty of pictures, diagrams, do's and don'ts, and explanations. You may take a look at that one when you're setting it up. Its faucet is pretty much the same as any gravity filter have where you can normally get a couple of o-rings or washers to go with those. One goes up against the flange on the tap, and then it's pushed through to the inside of the filter, then you may put on the next washer, then screw on the lock and nut.

Installation Process

When tightening them up, it is good that the lock and nuts got a couple of impregnations on it so you can tighten it up tight with your hand. You can generally leave the tap just before 12 o'clock, although with this one, has excellent rubber seals. You can set your tap up nice and vertical at 12 o'clock, and really tighten him up on the inside, and give it a good tightness. However, don't over-tighten it. As soon as you see that rubber there starting to squash in, you're looking good. Once it’s all installed, then you’re good to go. Finally, you can take hold of the cartridge.

What it Does

Note that these Stefani cartridges actually do have very good test result. So, I think that you'll be doing well using one of these candles. It removes, 99.9% bacteria, amoeba, 98.5 chlorine, iron, copper, lead, zinc, 94% aluminum. This makes all right up in the high 90's, 99% removal rates and it goes on with other test results.

What You Should Remember

Don't get your hands on the top ceramic part, instead, try and hold it by the base here if you can. With two washers, you always got to have one washer on and in the top tank. It's the top tank where the seal has to be. Then, get the cartridge and put it in. Second washer on, lock a nut on, screw it up. If you over-tighten these candles, your base is gonna strip the thread. They are plastic, but they do work well.

After you’ve done that, the float valve goes on the bottom of your gravity filter candle. Once you've got it on there, you can simply screw the float valve on, and it will be good to go.This stops the water from continually filtering down, preventing any leakages and, it's just gonna sit in there like so. Because these tanks aren't sealed between the top and the bottom, if it didn't have the float switch to come up and shut the water off, then the water would continue to flow out and leak through.


Basically, you need to fill the top tank up with water, the water will penetrate down through the candle, and you'll have lovely filtered water in the bottom. The top sits on the top, and you're good to go. So, there's the Stefani 5 liter terracotta water purifier. Have a look at the information on the page.
