Waterfiltercrock.com is happy to team up with AquaCera to develop a ceramic filter that removes contaminates that municipal water facilities miss, resulting in safe water, free of chemicals, drugs, and other undesirable impurities. We also wanted a filter that could be used for lake houses and cabins, where running water and power are unavailable, with streams and ponds being the only source of reliable water.

The CeraMetix® Ceramic Filter Candle is the powerhouse behind Smyth/Cid water filtration crocks. Using AquaMetix® technology, to effectively filter bad taste, odors, and any number of nasty things floating around in your tap water: bacteria, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, chloramines, chlorine, cysts, fluoride, lead, mercury, nickel, radionuclides, silver, tri-halomethane, VOC’s, zinc, and pharmaceuticals. All in a single, revolutionary ceramic filter element! Made in the USA.

AquaMetix® is a proprietary matrix comprising of at least 2 types of activated carbon, combined with crystalline mono and di-calcium phosphate along with chemically active calcium carbonate, structurally bound with polymers in a highly porous block filter form.

Filter lasts approximately one year, or 1000 gallons use, whichever comes first.
