    Paper water filter cartridge turning brown very fast

    Hello

    I have a a paper then a activated carbon water filter system for filling up the pond.

    Recently my paper cartridges are going very dark brown and leaving a dark coloured semi sludgy deosit in the bottom of the first paper chamber quite quickly.

    used to take a couple weeks or say 6k onwards for this.

    Now this is happeninf within a few days of going in . Or 1000 litres

    I buy branded cartridges but either I am doing someting wrong or North west water are putting mud in manchester's water

    Any advice please

    ahh, thats only lightly soiled
    here's one of mine...

    admittedly i've noticed an increase in the amount of dirt in the tap water,
    just glad i've a filter for the house drinking water too...

    i got these for at 10 for 10 on ebay, good brand too...
    usually replace them every couple of months.

    that was only after a few days though. Agreed you can run them and they go very mucky but this just seems a bit too quick.

    Glad we have a britta filter makes you wonder all that dirt and rust going in your kidneys !!

    Jim

    aquaforte - yes I use though too

    i didn't notice,
    but it can happen when they work on repairing leaks in the area, and flush all the crap from the muddy hole down the line
    not just seen it done...done it myself

    fair play mate- its just theres a mucky brown substance at the bottom of the paper chamber and I think is this making my water cloudier in my pond.
    The speed they are getting dirty is very fast.

    Good to know they chuck mud in our water ! must be posh clay at least that would explain the constant rising prices
