Ceramic water filter

For the filter intended for developing countries, made using clay and a dung fire, see Clay pot filter.

Ceramic water filters are a type of water filter, typically used in a household, which purify water by passing the water through pores in ceramic (or sometimes), either slowly (by dripping)[citation needed] or with the pressure of the tap water.

Such filters can potentially cause an increase in the levels of bacteria in the water if not changed or cleaned frequently.[citation needed]

Clay can also be used, but is more likely to affect the taste of the water.[citation needed]
