Do not use detergents or soap to clean your filters. Given the porous nature of the Micro Ceramic Filter, detergents and soaps may absorb into the filter, causing it to clog; which may also affect the taste of your water.
Micro Ceramic Filter Care
After using the Micro Ceramic Filter several times, the surface of the filter will collect a layer of orangish gunk. This gunk is the impurities you couldn’t see before that are now trapped and inert. Gently scrub your filter with a dedicated sponge to clean. It should be replaced once a year for best performance.
