Doulton the leaders in ceramic water filters have been manafacturing for over 100 years and were initially invented for the Queen to filter the water coming out of the thames river. The two most common Doulton Ceramic Water Filters are the Sterasyl and the ultracarb. The sterasyl is a ultrafine ceramic filter capable of filtering down to 0.2 micron and are suitable replacments for the standard polyspun type pre filters. The Ultracarb is a dual stage ceramic filter featuring a carbon block inner core and a ceramic outer core making them excellent in single system such as benchtop or countertop water filters and single under sink systems (found commonly used in twin under sink filter set up’s with a polyspun pre filter).
