Doulton W9120145 Rio 2000 Replacement Filters Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the Doulton W9120145.
These are the replacement filter elements for the Doulton Rio 2000 whole house filter system. Each one of these elements is a Doulton Sterasyl ceramic filter with a hollow core. It features Doultonís standard ceramic technology with imbedded silver. And this process of imbedding the silver is superior to silver impregnation which many other manufacturers use, because the imbedding process does not allow the silver to escape from the ceramic and get into your drinking water. And, obviously you donít want that in your drinking water, but you do want the silver because it causes the filters to be self-sterilizing and bacteriostatic so that microorganisms cannot live and grow on the filter media.
And ceramic is a very dense filtration media, providing absolute filtration down to 0.9 microns. This will give you 99.99% reduction of microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia, as well as the same level of protection for pathogenic bacteria like salmonella, e coli, and cholera.
Now, perhaps the greatest feature of these ceramic filters is the reusability factor. They can be removed, washed and reused many many many times. Simply remove the Rio 2000 from the filter housing, and then using the special tool that came with your Rio 2000, clean each filter element carefully, then reinstall and youíre back in business, removing extremely fine silt and dangerous microorganisms.
Now, the kit comes complete, obviously, with these six filter elements and also two fresh gaskets for the top and bottom of your Rio 2000.
Again, this is the Doulton W9120145, the replacement filter set for the Doulton Rio 2000.
