For fluoride removal up to 97% try an UltraCeram 5" candles. Some previously sold Chinese Ming Purifiers may need an adjustment for candle to fit insert basin drain hole, but these will fit our Billabong range, Southern Cross and most other water purifiers/pottery water filter units

Warning: There are other retailers selling 'replacement Australis candles' - but be wary of where they come from, without our packaging they are most likely made in china - They are not Australis candles they are fakes.

Model 288 does not remove fluoride. (For more information about fluoride please see FAQ section) or look at the UltraCeram candle on this web site

Postage costs for this option is calculated base on weight and location, however when purchasing more than 1 candles price per candle is reduced.

All good now thank you Gordon. We'll remember that little trick of removing the bud from the pipe, if it stops draining early. I love your filters, the water tastes great.
