The carbon media inside most water filter cartridges is only manufactured to last 12 months. After this period the effectiveness and efficiency of your filter system will be significantly reduced.
In addition to this – in most systems – your water filter cartridge(s) holds all the chemicals, heavy metals and bacteria etc. that has been removed from your water over the last 12 months; using the cartridge past this due date can cause bacteria to re-contaminate the cartridge and therefore be reintroduced into your drinking water.
Hence we highly recommend replacing or maintaining your filter cartridge at the suggested time of doing so.
