I know that to an extent the cartridge also captures some of the gunk, so just wondering if this would be a ok swap out. Thanks!
And I'm currently "maturing" the ceramic rings so they'll have a nice culture when I do make the swap. Thanks!
Ceramic rings will get dirty fairly quickly,water can get dirtier, without something to catch the dirt or gunk as you say before it reaches the ceramic, but is no Harm doing this.
