UK: Essencia Carbon filter cartridge sources ???

Postby JimmyPage » Wed Jun 21, 2017 2:35 am

It seems impossible to now source the Essencia Carbon Catridge in the UK. My LHS has had an order in since February, and I see all other online sources are now Out Of Stock.

I have 2 left (10 washes worth) and then my nice Essencia Filter housing will become an expensive plant pot.

Has anyone out there any idea WTF is going on ?

I have contacted Essencia, but not heard back :(

Apart from that - happy distilling !

Had some spare time and searched for you.
You aren't kidding. UK dealers are out of stock.

Found this while looking, though... http://ww.homedistiller.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=60184

Tx for that. I did catch that post when digging, but discounted it (too soon) as it started talking about the T-500 still which I don't have (still running the Still Spirits pot still).

However, I did catch another post on another forum, which suggested recycling.

So I'm drying out my old filter and will experiment. Maybe there's a sideline to make some money from reconditioning folks old filters.

I notice with interest that even Australian suppliers are OOS - which suggests a serious problem at Essencias end. But the radio silence from them is deafening. It's almost like they have taken lessons from the UK Conservative party in how to piss off your loyal supporters.

Why not just make something that doesn't need carbon filtering? Then no worries and you save money :-)
