Water filters are hazardous to health, if you do not change cartridges in time.

  • Dec 28, 2019

Two years ago, I found a familiar water filter "under the sink." I remember that I spent for them instructing you to replace the cartridge after 6-12 months. But unfortunately, forgetting to change the filter cartridge is not made. On Sergey last week, was the name of my friend, reported that the water filter has deteriorated. The water flow has become quite small. And after the fluid intake of the filter having discomfort in the stomach... Briefly - poisoned.
