How it works
SM4 gravity ceramic water filter has two stainless steel containers, one on top of the other. Four ceramic filter cartridges are housed in the top container which is filled with untreated water. Water slowly passes through the ceramic cartridges under gravity where bacteria, cyst and other microbes are retained and killed. Safe water collects in the bottom container under gravity at a rate of up to 2.6 liters per hour.
