Cryptosporidium Removal Undersink Drinking Water Filter System with Doulton Ultracarb® Ceramic Candle

The Finerfilters Cryptosporidium system offers bacteria rated multi stage filtration, heavy metal reduction and also removes 99.99% of sediment and chlorine which significantly improves the taste & odour of your drinking water.
This British made Doulton filter retains essential minerals in the water that are beneficial to health and has a silver-impregnated ceramic candle which prevents bacterial growth.

This kit is specifically designed to filter out cryptosporidium – a hard shell bacteria which usually cannot be treated with UV light (like most bacteria can). Cryptosporidium can cause symptoms such as respiratory and gastrointestinal illness.
Your water board will usually notify you of a cryptosporidium outbreak and put a boil water notice out. This however can be time consuming and by the time the information is relayed to you it may already be too late! If you are going to have a water filter in your home, a crypto kit is a great option to cover all possibilities.

Doulton HIP housing to accept Doulton “Short Mount” water filters are WRAS approved products, .
The Doulton Ultracarb® candle 10-inch Short Mount fits the Doulton HIP, HIS & DUO housings.
The Doulton Ultracarb short mount water filter is a highly effective filter with an absolute rating of 0.9 micron making it highly effective against pathogenic organisms and will remove more than 99.99% of bacteria (e. Coli / Cholera / Shigella / Typhoid / Klebsiella Terrigena) and more than 99.99% of cysts (Cryptosporidium and Giardia).

The Ultracarb also contains heavy metal removal media, meaning it can remove heavy metals such as lead, iron, mercury & cadmium from the water.
This kit comes with all the components included for easy DIY installation.

Any water treatment solution recommended by Finerfilters to remove cryptosporidium is only guaranteed to remove 99.9% of cryptosporidium.
As with all filters, people should follow the manufacturer`s instructions for filter use and replacement. Water treated with a point-of-use filter that meets the above criteria may not necessarily be free of organisms smaller than Cryptosporidium that could pose a health hazard for severely immunocompromised individuals.
Cryptosporidium can be passed from Human-to-Human, and Animal to Human.

Please follow local health officer guidelines to reduce your risk of non-water borne infection from Cryptosporidium.

Finerfilters recommend that all severely immunocompromised persons (babies/elderly persons) take extra caution with regards to their drinking water, individuals who wish to take extra measures to avoid waterborne Cryptosporidiosis can bring their drinking water to a full boil for one minute. Boiling water is the most effective way of killing Cryptosporidium.
