I noticed on this link it only shows the 1 cartridge that can be cleaned. http://www.doultonusa.com/HTML%20pages/ceramic_cartridges.htm#DOE
The flow rate of the ceramic filter can be easily renewed by simply brushing its outer surface with a stiff toothbrush, plastic brush or soft scouring pad under running water. As the top layer of ceramic and the contaminants are brushed off and flushed away, a new layer becomes available. With the Sterasyl candle/cartridge this process can be repeated over 50 times and or when the diameter of the slimline element reaches 1.75/44 in./mm. Supersterasyl, Ultracarb and Supercarb candles/cartridges should be changed every 6-9 months as their carbon media will get exhausted sooner than the ceramic.

Imperial Ultracarb lead removal capacity is 2000 gallons.
Sterasyl candle is for microbial removal only. Organic chemicals are reduced with the carbon inside the Sterasyl such as Supersterasyl in gravity mode or Supercarb and Ultracarb in pressure filters.I tried to see some tests made on this candle on your web site but its onlyavailable on "superstearasyl", "ultracarb" etc and not on "stearasyl".Aside from removing bacteria...Does this stearasyl candle also1. Improve the taste?2. Remove chemicals like, chlorine and chloramine?
