Ultraceram Gravity Water Filter Replacement Candle with Fluoride & Heavy Metal Removal



Ultraceram Gravity Water Filter Replacement Candle with Fluoride & Heavy Metal Removal

ULTRACERAM Filtration with minerals Retained

This is a cartridge which is sometimes called a candle, it is used to filter water for any gravity water filter. It is a great choice with a standard 12.5mm threaded end to install into any gravity water filter so long as the gravity water filter top tank has a minimum hole size of 12.5mm or a maximum hole size around 20mm. (Note: You can drill or file the hole in your water filter top tank to be 12.5mm if required.)

An ideal choice of gravity cartridge for both water tanks or treated city water, it has the best test results we can find for a gravity water filtration cartridge. If you are filtering rain water it is great as it will stop all the bugs & bacteria in the water, whilst at the same time it protects you from any herbicides, pesticides or lead that may wash in from your roof.

Then for treated city water it has super high removal rates for the common contaminants like fluoride, chlorine & chloramine, plus protects from all those other contaminants in the test results below.

This ULTRACERAM cartridge is made from the highest quality ceramic, with coconut shell based granular activated carbon and other proprietary adsorbent medias on the inside. It combines mechanical filtration and physical adsorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerns.

This cartridge has a NSF Certified Ceramic outer shell made from Diatomaceous Earth formed from millions of microscopic silicone shells - compressed to give a 0.5 micron rating to repel any sediments, bugs or bacteria.

The pore structure of the ceramic enables sufficient contact time for the ULTRACERAM to be ideally suited to improving taste and odour as well as reducing Chlorine, Chloramines, Pathogenic Organisms, Volatile Organic Contaminants, Herbicides & Pesticides, Heavy Metals, Semi-Volatile Contaminants and most importantly fluoride.

This unique high-performance ceramic shell cartridge is perfect for treated tap water or untreated water like rainwater from a tank.

You will be battling to find a better gravity cartridge than this, that’s a fact.

This cartridge can be used to replace the filter cartridge for the following filter systems:

What Makes This Product Unique

It is the quality of the Ultraceram cartridge which has passed all the tests at such high removal rates that makes this cartridge so unique. As the water passes through this cartridge slowly, the extra contact time with the cartridge allows for such a wide range of contaminant removal.

Manufactured by KLT Industries in Great Britain who guarantee high-quality materials are always used. This single ceramic gravity candle is a highly efficient ceramic sub micron filter suitable to remove unwanted contaminants from any water supply. It is great for both treated or untreated water.

Contaminant Removal


Long Lasting Service Life Of 12 Months

Cartridges are very easy to replace and only have to be changed over as required every 2000 litres or 6 to 12 months, whichever comes first.

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 depending 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 scotch brite 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 don't touch the cartridge as much as possible.

This cartridge is quite thick and can be scrubbed up to 100 times as shown in the image below if that was ever required.


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.


When installing or replacing any water filtration cartridges, ensure you know what you are doing or have a qualified person to help you or contact us for assistance.

Cleanliness is important. Wash hands before handling the cartridge and take care to ensure that no contamination of the cartridge occurs during assembly.

Use a glove or similar so your hands don't touch the cartridge as much as possible.

  1. Place the sealing washer over the cartridge threaded stem

  2. Place the filter cartridge threaded stem through the hole in the upper section of the top housing from the inside out and secure with a wing nut

  3. Do not over tighten

  4. Ensure that the outlet tap is in the off position

  5. Fill the upper chamber with cold water and allow this to filter through to the lower section.

  6. It is recommended that this first supply of filtered water is thrown away, as it may contain material washed from the filter element

  7. Some black carbon fines may be seen when first using but this will stop fast

  8. For the Filteroo Ceramic filters, flow a minimum of 3 x tanks of water through the cartridge to flush. 

  9. For the Filteroo Blue, flush 1 x tank of water through the cartridge to flush as the Filteroo Blue has a much larger top tank. 

The filter is now ready for use. Enjoy...
