Ceramic filter systems have been used for decades to produce clean, filtered water. Water is forced through the ceramic candle, filtering it of some of the smallest contaminants, including e. coli and cryptosporiduim. The water then travels down and out into the water delivery pipes. Ceramic countertop systems are easy to use and require little installation making them a great choice for second homes or rental properties. The AquaCera Gravity Filter System is used by some of the world's best known relief organizations, including the Red Cross.
