Nope have not heard that one. Canisters with activated Carbon pads yes - the carbon is the culprit, but canisters..nope, does not make sense to me.

Really??? That is a new one on me!

It sounds to me like someone is trying to blame everything but themselves.

Carbon media... Maybe
Canister filters no

I have no idea why the water bill is so high

I think there was a theory going around that canisters could actually work against you if you just leave them to fill up with crap. However, any filter will probably stop working properly if it's left for too long.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I hadn't heard that before.

but it is an interesting idea.

the only thing I can think of is certain types of media not being maintained in a proper amount of time.
