This ceramic cartridge is by far the best value ceramic cartridge on the market, it's full size allows better flow than comparable other ceramic cartridges, and the sub 1 micron filtration reduces harmful bacteria like Giardia, E-coli and more.
Ceramic surface can be cleaned to extend life of the cartridge, however due to how fine this filter cartridge really is, we recommend installing with a fine sediment pre-filter as well.
