With a Doulton Water Filter, the healthy mineral content in your water will increase, leading to a slight increase in your water's Total Dissolved Solids.
For a family of four, we recommend changing your filter every 6 months.
If you notice your water flow (the speed the water comes out of your tap) dropping before 6 months, remove your filter and clean it with a stiff brush. You can clean your filter as often as needed without damaging the performance. Find out how.
On average a family of four uses approximately 8 litres of water per day for cooking and drinking. Therefore, based on 10 litres/day for four people the life of your filter can be estimated in time rather than capacity.
Hardness is caused by Calcium Carbonate or metal salts in your water. Hard water is perfectly safe to drink, but doesn't allow soaps to foam as freely as softer water (water with less Calcium Carbonate).
With a Doulton Water Filter, the healthy mineral content in your water will increase, leading to a slight increase in your water's PH level.
Our filter forms a physical barrier for pathogens, trapping the bacteria in your water on the surface of the ceramic while allowing clear, mineral-rich, great-tasting water though. The bacteria trapped on the surface is stifled with silver, added to our ceramic during manufacture.
If your water flow lessens before you change your filter, remove and clean it before putting it back to extend its life. Find out how here.
