Looking for advice on whether a damaged charcoal filter can be used in my new Spectra Ventura watermaker
. As per the attached photo
, the charcoal filter is damaged. The outside plastic mesh is torn and there are two small divots in the white filter material. I don't think charcoal will spill out of the white filter.
Can I use this filter or is its purpose significantly reduced? Any risk to the watermaker
(e.g., not filtering chlorine, charcoal spilling into the system...)?
