✔ Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) – for chlorine, taste and odour reduction
✔ De-alk resin – for temporary hardness and heavy metal reduction
The Osmio 2.5 x 10 Limescale & Chlorine Filter Filter incorporates granular activated carbon (GAC) which is combined with Phosphate and De-alk resin. The filter is effective against chlorine, taste and odour, heavy metals e.g. lead, and will also tackle hard water, which is seen as limescale in kettles and as an unsightly scum on the surface of hot drinks. Water hardness varies greatly depending upon location, so the filter will need to be replaced at 3 - 6 monthly intervals or longer all of which entirely depends on the hardness of your water and the amount you use
The Ceramic Water Filter will need to be smashed with the media inside thrown into the bin. The plastic ends can then be placed within the recycling.
The Limescale & Chlorine Filter will need to have the Granular Activated Carbon within the filter to be emptied out and used for soil drainage and compost. Plastic components from the filter can then be placed in recycling.
The system will easily fit under your kitchen sink. See the dimensions shown below:
The kit includes everything you need to get the system up and running and is easy to install.

Coldstream filter: The filter would need to be smashed the ceramic and media inside should go to rubbish and the plastic ends can be recycled as plastic. Some people use the media and ceramic to compost but I don't because they can have pharmaceutical and hormone traces and I grow food so I would not want that. For the media, it would be best to send that stuff to the landfill.
Osmio Chlorine and Limescale Filter: Unscrew the cap end(s) and empty out the media into normal rubbish. The plastic parts can be put in recycling so long as your council accepts plastics recycling, or if not then at a council recycling place along with the plastic parts from the Coldstream filter.
