Wow! I have never seen one quite like that before. It looks very black, and monolithic.

I am curious to know if you have looked under the sky blue cap on top of it.

I am kind of naively assuming there is a way to take the cap off. Also there might be some hieroglyphics, perhaps with the name of the manufacturer, underneath that cap.

Also the cap itself appears to have some sort of pictogram on it too. It is hard to make out from the angle the picture was taken, but the bas-relief pictogram on the cap looks vaguely like a smiley face, with water drop shapes for eyes, and a capital "I" turned sideways for a mouth.

It is like a puzzle box.


"A puzzle box (also called a secret box or trick box) is a box that can
only be opened by solving a puzzle. Some require only a simple move and
others a series of discoveries."

The text, on the warning tag, includes instructions for how to proceed further.

I cannot read all of what it says, because the glare from the camera flash covered about half of it in noise.

I am kind of guessing you can read that part. My partial transcription is quoted below:


Warning ******* under pressure!
Turn off ***** supply.

****************until pressure is completely


*************ring by pulling handle inward
and upward then remove lid.

There would be a filter cartridge within. With no sign of any clips, so the lid should just screw off. Have you tried that, turning it anti-clockwise?
