User Guide

Instructions

  1. The ceramic shell of the water filter is designed to filter fine particles, bacteria and other contaminants from your water. The ceramic shell can eventually need cleaning; evidenced by reduced flow. Simply remove, clean and replace the cartridge
  2. Wash your hands with filtered water
  3. Remove the ceramic cartridge according to the instructions of your particular filter housing (Handle with care. Wet cartridges are fragile!)
  4. Take a clean scouring pad, or slightly abrasive cloth, and give the ceramic a light scrub under running water
  5. Apply gentle pressure uniformily on the filter surface. This will remove surface particles from the water filter as well as an outer layer of ceramic, restoring and refreshing the water filter to its original water flow
  6. Wash hands thoroughly after handling the ceramic cartridge. Important: Care must be taken at all times to prevent contamination of the end of the cartridge mount from unfiltered water and/or dirty hands from cleaning the cartridge surface
  7. You may wish to cover the end with a plastic bag and rubberband to make handling easier. Do not use soap or detergents
  8. Cleaning can be done over 50 times before replacement of the water filter cartridge will be necessary
  9. The carbon core, more than likely, will become exhausted before the outer ceramic layer begins to thin, unless you are filtering sediment heavy water, and cleaning is done often
