You've inspired me! I have just run the test again with a brand new Whale Gusher Galley
foot pump and a brand new .5m carbon block filter. The flow rate is significantly reduced by the carbon block filter. I pumped and pumped. It took just under 3 minutes to fill a 1 gallon jug.
I have spoken with Whale about their pumps. The main issue with running it through a carbon block filter is the return spring. It does not have the power to push the water. The Whale tech warned me of pump parts
failure when pushing against too great a constriction like the carbon block filter. Also, in my test i have been using a brand new filter. When your filter gets clogged a little bit the constriction will be much greater. In the end your water will certainly be clean, but very, very slow.
I hope this helps with your search.
