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
