Doulton W9120562 Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Doulton W9120562.
Now, the W9120562 is a proprietary cartridge designed specifically for pressurized Doulton drinking water systems. This cartridge is not appropriate for gravity fed systems.
Itís known as the Sterasyl S and it is a ceramic only filter; there is no other filter media inside of the ceramic shell. It provides absolute filtration down to 0.9 microns, which means it removes 99.99% of microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia, and 99.99% reduction of pathogenic bacteria like salmonella, cholera, e coli and many others.
Now, every Doulton filter features this self-sterilizing ceramic outer shell with imbedded silver particles. Itís important to know that this is not an impregnation of silver, but rather the silver particles are imbedded within the ceramic and therefore cannot escape. Unlike an impregnating procedure which would allow for the silver to escape from the filter media; this is a superior process and will not allow silver to be added into your drinking water. And the silver is important, because it causes the filter to be bacteriostatic and self-sterilizing.
Now, perhaps the greatest feature of these ceramic filters is that they are reusable. You can wash this filter and reuse it up to about twenty times. Simply remove it from the filter housing, and under running water use a green Scotchbrite to lightly scrub the outer surface until its fresh and creamy white like it was when it was new. Then reinstall and youíre back in business.
Filter life is difficult to estimate because itís going to depend on your unique circumstances; but approximately 2,600 gallons and about twenty reuses of the filter cartridge.
Again, this is the Doulton W9120562, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
