RIO Carousel and 6 cartridges 'RIO' Carousel and all 6 Doulton Sterasyl candles (cartridges) .


The silver impregnated, 0.5 nominal to 0.9 micron absolute, ceramic candle (cartridge) is self-sterilising:
E.Coli, Coliforms, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Salmonella, Shigella, Typhoid, Klebsiella, Cholera - all better than 99.99%.
Turbidity (particulates & sediments) - better than 99.7%.

The Sterasyl cartridges are scrubbable with a stiff brush(supplied). When the flow rate drops because of fouling, take the cartridges out and scour them with the brush.


Typical Flow Rates:
Can be plotted on a straight line graph
at 30psi = 1,333 litres/hour
at 45 psi = 2,000 litres/hour (33 litres a minute).
at 60 psi = 2,666 litres/hour


The maximum recommended flow rate for best performance is 2000 litres/hour

Recommended cartridge change frequency is at least once every 12 months.

Delivery to a British mainland address, at the extra cost elsewhere (the "cart" will work this out for you).


Not included in the price:
Because we are site unseen: Any 15mm or 22mm copper pipe and sundry fittings etc you might need. These are easily and cheaply available at plumbers and builders merchants & DIY stores and ironmongers .


A spare Plenum with 6 cartridges installed ready for use.
Plenum with 6 cartridges installed
We suggest that you purchase an extra Plenum and 6 cartridges with your system. This way you will have duty and stand-by for quick changes so that the supply is only disrupted for a few minutes. Besides being a little cheaper to buy now, you will also be able to scrub the cartridges clean at your leisure.
Assuming equal use, the recommended cartridge change is doubled to 24 months.
(Cartridges not in use should be dried and stored in a dark dry environment - absolutely no sunlight at all).
If you want to buy this with your new Moby Rio, please use the drop down menu next to "Add to Cart", click on '+ Spare Plenum' then click "Add to Cart".


Turbidity Pre-Filtration.
If the water is clear, you probably do not need any pre-filtration. We suggest you proceed with the Moby Rio only and add a pre-filter later if you find that you are having to clean the cartridges too frequently.
If the water is discoloured or not clear, then you will need to pre-filter. At 0.5micron nominal to 0.9 micron absolute; the 6 sterasyls will foul very quickly. Please call us to discuss.
