This replacement candle exceeds the high levels of filtration of other ceramic filters, maintaining healthier drinking and cooking water.
Higher level of filtration
The 10″ short mount CeraMetix candle removes bacteria, cysts, sediment, chloramines, chlorine, flouride, lead, VOC’s heavy metals, glyphosate and pharmaceutical compounds. The ceramic shell and our AquaMetix® block combine mechanical filtration and physical absorption processes to reduce a wide range of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerned. The dense pore structure and vast surface area are ideally suited to improving taste and odour as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, lead, mercury, asbestos and fluoride. The cleanable ceramic shell is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria and cysts. The Cerametix® elements have been tested in accordance with ANSI/NSF protocols for cyst turbidity particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction (Class 1).

The filter element of the 10″ Short Mount CeraMetix has been independently tested.
Peace of mind with quality and performance
100% filtration for Cryptosporidium
99.9999% filtration for E.Coli
Healthy House® CeraMetix Candle
Cerametix® filter elements utilise our class leading ceramic micro porous outer shell combined with our AquaMetix® core block technology.
AquaMetix® is a proprietary matrix comprising of at least two types of activated carbon, combined with proprietary zeolite minerals, structurally bound with polymers into a highly porous block. The manufacturing process of compression moulding is unique, and the base materials are blended into a solid block having a very uniform pore structure that ensures filtration consistency and high performance.
Plastic Particles/Fibres in Drinking Water
In a study in 2017, 72% of the water samples tested in the UK, Germany and France contained plastic particles/fibres. Within the study of tap water, it was likely that the nanoparticles were present alongside the fibres, but this was not measured. Worryingly, once the particles are in the nanometre range, they can penetrate cells and possibly organs. This investigation caught particles of more than 2.5 microns in size, which is 2,500 times bigger than a nanometre.
*This highly efficient Cerametix filter has an absolute filtration down to 0.5 microns. This is significantly more efficient that the Doulton Ultracarb filter, which can only claim a nominal filtration efficiency at 0.5 micron.

Trace Organics Removal
One of the main properties of activated carbon is that it will remove organic compounds. Additionally the activated carbon in our filters has an affinity for hormone based steroids such as oestrogens so should help to remove them to some extent, testing is in its infancy so we are currently unable to make an accurate claim to the extent of the removal.
Filter Replacement Service
Whether you purchase air purifiers, dehumidifiers or water filters, or any of their replacement parts we offer you peace of mind. We will add your name to our reminder service. In accordance with the manufacturers’ guidelines we will send you a gentle reminder that your unit may need replacement parts.
