The black residue is a natural discharge from activated charcoal, which is an essential component of filtration.

In case you drink water when it is still dark - there is no cause for concern. Activated charcoal is a natural detoxifier and is being used in many products now.
We emphasise the thorough washing of your filter before installation.
Why is it taking very long for filtration?
In the event of extremely slow filtration, please rinse the water filter with warm water (not hot or boiling).

Once you wash thoroughly and start using the water filter, the filtration rate will gradually increase.
