Why do you have to soak water filter cartridges and then run two lots of water through them before you can consume the water?

asked in water, filtration

scooby.snacks answers:

If I recall correctly, the filters use activated charcoal. My guess is that you need to wash out small particles, which might make the water gritty.

If you look at water with charcoal dust in it, it has a sparkly look; a bit like goldschlager, but it won't make you vomit quite so much. Additionally, the charcoal will possibly slightly deodorise your botty burps. That's if you ever have any, which I'm sure you won't.

So they never catch fire, (charcoal is very inflammable.)
