Now that's a deal. Been waiting for these to come down.

Buy a bag of activated carbon from your local homebrew shop and refill your old filter for about 30p

Saw someone post this previously and have prepped an old filter ready for my carbon to arrive, if it works it's a hell of a lot cheaper 👌

Regardless, this is a bargain if you want the filters!

How do you open the filter without breaking plastic?

The clips on Youtube show people cutting the top completely off but this is not necessary.
On mine I just cut the 4 small tabs of the round plug in the top remove the bit of filter paper empty it and refill through this hole, Don't worry about putting the round plastic back because unless you tip the filter upside down the carbon stays put because it's wet but if the hole bothers you cut a small piece of a STAINLESS steel scourer and use it as a plug . Once done your filter will last a lot longer than a standard one before needing refilling.

Here's a pic of mine that I've been using for a few years

That's exactly what I read, it may have even been yourself who posted it previously as those instructions seem identical, so if it was, I appreciate the heads up.

people the refill concept that may work for some, It is strongly influenced by printer cartridge refilling
