CORRECTION - Low cost water filtration systems, Sub- Saharan Africa

Hi Chaiwe, Please allow a correction and a brief explanation of the different kinds of ceramic filters.  The headline of this post, *Low cost water filtration systems, Sub- Saharan Africa,* does not correspond with its text, and rather, the filter of the headline is described in the article of the first link following.  It is pot filters that are shown in this SuSanA post, and these are quite different.  Making this even more complicated (smile), the ceramic filters described in the post, that can be made locally are those referred to in the second link following, i.e., candle filters.
 
HERE ARE THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF CERAMIC FILTERS
 
A.  Monolithic filters.  I.e., filters of one piece.  These include the pot filters as well as such filters as candle filters and disc filters.  It is the candle filters that can be formed locally, with the help someone knowledgeable in chemistry who can do silver treatment.  Note that chlorine is not involved.  Candle filters are described via the second link following.
 
B. Granulated ceramic filters are those described in the article of the first link following.  These can be household sized, and once they are implemented it should become clear
that a particular feature of these is that a point-of-use water filters of any
size can be fabricated.
