*Filter boxes have been redesigned and no longer include the dividers provided in the older model filter boxes, to suit the new Filter Cartridges, available here: R-030 R-040 & R-055. The codes have also been updated on the box lid, and now show FB in replace of the old R code (i.e FB-050 instead of R-050, FB-020 instead of R-020).
