The Filter


How fast does the gravity fed candle filter water?

A: Water is filtered at a rate of 1 - 1.5 litres per hour but will depend on quality of water you are using.

How long does the filter last? 

A: 2000 litres or 12 months e.g if you top up 3 times daily (breakfast, lunch and dinner = 6.6L / day) 6L divided into 2000L gives you 333 days of clean drinking water before you a due to replace your filter again.


The Crystalline Glaze


How do the crystals appear?

A: The crystals grow in the glaze as a chemical reaction during the firing, this is a procedure that makes each pot as unique as we are. 



The Water Filter Details


How much water will one water filter hold?

A: A very important point to keep in mind when measuring the water filter is that they are all hand made. Each ceramic water filter is unique in its own right, despite the fact we do follow a template. 

The Mary Valley water filter range will hold approximately 10 - 12 liters. With approximately 2 liters of filtered water.

The Crystalline water filter range will hold approximately 10 - 12 liters. With approximately 5 liters of filtered water (depending on the size).

Do the filters completely remove fluoride from the water?

A: We do list technical specifications on the SCP Fluoride Plus Filter here and the Doulton Super Sterasyl Filter here. If you require further information, we do recommend contacting the manufacturer directly as we can not supply and further details unfortunately.
