  •  Firstly, soak it in distilled water for at least one hour. Helping remove  the things that will affect your distilling.
  •  Secondly, place in a filter housing along with the needed supports or connections. Most filters use a standard connection.
  • Thirdly, connect the filter to the distilling system.
  •  Turn on the system and allow to flow through the filter. The carbon will adsorb unwanted things, leaving it pure.
  • Check the flow rate. If slowing down, turn off the system and replace the activated carbon.
  • Store in a cool, dry place. High temperatures make it weaker.
