Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe
or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after
the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on
disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
Filter must be protected against freezing, which can
cause cracking of the filter and water leakage.
The rubber O-ring provides the water-tight seal between
the cap and the bottom of the housing. It is important that the O-ring
be properly seated in the groove below the threads of the housing or a
water leak could occur.
Because of the product’s limited service life and to
prevent costly repairs or possible water damage, we strongly
recommend that the bottom of all plastic housings be replaced every
ten years. If the bottom of your housing has been in use for longer
than this period, it should be replaced immediately. Date the bottom of
any new or replacement housing to indicate the next recommended
replacement date.

The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by
the selected cartridge are not necessarily in your water. Ask your
local water municipality for a copy of their water analysis, or have
your water tested by a reputable water testing lab.
After prolonged periods of non-use (such as during a vacation) it
is recommended that the system be flushed thoroughly. Let water
run for 5–6 minutes before using.
The filter cartridges used with this system have a limited service
life. Changes in taste, odor, and/or flow of the water being filtered
indicate that the cartridge should be replaced.
