HOW ARE THE FILTEROO’S CREATED?
Each Filteroo is personally handmade in Australia by the potter on the potters wheel from the best quality stoneware clay available and kiln fired to cone 10, which is around 1280 degree Celsius. These great quality water purifiers have been purposely designed to give the owner the best water filtration experience possible from a gravity water filter.
The filters are created in 4 separate parts so they are very easy to assemble and operate. Each part sits neatly into the other to create a strong sturdy filtration system.
It is comforting to know that the top and bottom tank configurations have been purposely designed so you can fill the top tank to the brim and there is no worries of any leaking between the tanks.
What that means is you just fill it up and go on your way while the filter creates magnificent drinking water for you. It will create beautiful drinking water for you while you sleep.
The filter body is finally coated with a non-toxic glaze. The nice smooth surface created both inside & out makes it very easy to wipe them clean.
As these filters are hand made, the walls are thicker than mould or machine produced filters, so these are the perfect container for storing water. The thicker clay walls have the natural ability to store the water at a nice drinkable temperature, even on those hot summer days.
WHY CHOOSE A FILTEROO WATER FILTER?
While there are many positive reasons to purchase a Filteroo gravity water filter over other brands, some real highlights are you can not overflow your Filteroo.
The Filteroo is designed to have quality gravity cartridges installed into the top tank to provide you with any gravity water filtration type you desire. So you can filter rainwater from a water tank or chemical treated water supplied from the water board, the Filteroo & cartridge will take care of the filtration for you.
The inside of the housing is coated with a colourless felspar silicate glaze, nonlead with no leachable ingredients, so you have peace of mind you have a good healthy water supply with no contamination.
Smooth glazed finish inside & out, so cleaning or wiping over is very easy.
The outside is coloured from a variety of metal oxides in a range of colours so you can choose the best colour for your situation.

QUALITY YOU CAN RELY ON
When you're looking for more than just a water filter, the Filteroo gravity water filters are a great choice. Fully guaranteed to perform as they are supposed to.
PETER - THE PROFESSIONAL POTTERS JOURNEY INTO POTTERY
The Filteroo filters are hand thrown on the potter's wheel by renowned Queensland potter Peter Wallace, known for his superb craft and outstanding glazes, he has been potting since 1972.
Peter had an amazing apprenticeship you might say to make him the world-class potter he is today. From humble beginnings, Peter had the opportunity to spend time with the great Australian artist, the late Pro Hart who also lived in Broken Hill at the time. With encouragement from Pro Hart, Peter was on his way to make a living from the art he loved, creating products from and working with clay.
Be advised these water filters are individually handmade for customers, so they are all unique in some way.
WHO IT IS FOR?
The Filteroo gravity water purifiers do create fantastic quality water. But what you need to think about is how much water do you require? Although these systems do filter the water slowly, they are able to create up to 24 litres per day at the 1 litre per hour flow rate. But being realistic they would be more likely to create half that volume of water if filled when required. So just make sure this will create enough water for your home to use. These filters would be suitable for drinking water for up to a 3 or 4 person home. This is the slim line 10 litre size. There is also a larger wider 12 litre model available if you require more water each day.
Beware cheap or Terra cotta water purifiers which are low fired and are not glazed inside & out, they can almost always have a clay taste & be difficult to clean. These Filteroo products here are high fired stoneware. They are glazed inside and out, so you will never have a clay or earthy taste with this brand. They are nice and smooth inside for the best water quality & wipeing clean.

Long Lasting Service Life Of 12 Months
Cartridges are very easy to replace and only have to be changed over as required or every 12 months, which ever comes first. They have a recommended maximum life of 2000 litres.
Due to the filtration of particulate contaminants from the water during use, the flow of water from the filter may reduce over a period of time.
If your cartridge water flow rate slows down it is normally only because the outside of the Ultraceram cartridge has blocked with fine sediments. These sediments do build up and can slow the flow rate over time dependant on the volume of sediments in the water supply used to fill the top tank.
To restore the water flow to its normal level, simply remove the cartridge and scrub the surface with a clean skotchbrite kitchen scour pad or some 100 grit sandpaper under running water or in a bowl, ensuring that the open ended thread does not contact the water to avoid contamination.
Cleanliness is important, wash your hands before handling the cartridge and take care to ensure that no contamination of the cartridge occurs during cleaning.
Use a glove or similar so your hands dont touch the cartridge as much as possible.
This cartridge is quite thick and can be scubbed up to 100 times as shown in the image below if that was ever required.
NEVER WASH WITH DETERGENTS OR SECOND HAND SCOURER PADS.
If the filter is left to stand for more than 3 - 4 days without use, it is recommended that one litre of water be allowed to flow through the cartridge to waste before using.

- Place the sealing washer over the threaded stem
- Place the filter candle thread through the hole in the upper section of the top housing and secure with a wing nut
- Do not over tighten
- Ensure that the outlet tap is in the off position
- Fill the upper chamber with cold water and allow this to filter through to the lower section.
- It is recommended that this first supply of filtered water is thrown away, as it may contain material washed from the filter element
- Some black carbon fines may be seen when first using but this will stop fast
- Open the outlet tap and, over the course of the next few hours, allow the water to run to waste
- Fill the upper chamber again, open the outlet tap and allow this water to run to waste again
- We recommend filling the top tank 3 times and flushing that water through the cartridge to waste until it is running clear
The filter is now ready for use.
