Ceramic pot filters are made of a mixture of clay, water, and rice husk. The mixture is the first machine pressed into the correct flower pot mold, then after drying, is fired using a traditional ceramic firing kiln. During firing, the rice husk combusts, leaving behind many 0.6-500 μm holes that physically remove contaminants from the water.
The fired filters are then coated with silver nitrate, which acts as a biocide against the residual bacteria that may flow through. The safe water storage reservoir prevents re-contamination of treated water. With over 50 filter factories worldwide, ceramic water filters have been historically proven to be effective in removing 99.9% of microbiological contaminants.
