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.

The Filteroo Difference

It is the quality of the carbon used to create the carbon block cartridge and the professional manner in which they are manufactured 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 contact time with the cartridge allows for such a wide range of contaminant removal. Manufactured for Filteroo® Australia who guarantee high-quality materials are always used. This single carbon block gravity cartridge is a highly efficient filter suitable to remove unwanted contaminants from any water supply. It is great for both rain water or chemically treated city water.


If you would like to remove Fluoride as well, you can simply attach the Filteroo® Max Fluoride removal cartridge onto the bottom thread of the carbon cartridge.
