Use & Maintenance

To use the filter simply fill with water and let nature do its work. 

  • Fill to the top with room temperature or cold water. Never use hot water, which will ruin the filter cartridge.​

  • To condition a new filter: 1) fill and discard the water once, 2) let sit empty overnight, and then 3) fill and discard the water again.  If any black sediment appears in the water, this is just charcoal and usually disappears after conditioning. If you find charcoal in the water later, it's harmless and can be strained out. Initially the filter will be slower and it will speed up over time. 

  • If the filter is not used for over a week, flush through and discard one fill of water.

  • Because it's a gravity filter the flow rate is much faster when the water is filled to the top. It's normal for filtering to slow down and then stop once the water level drops towards the bottom couple inches. If you're in a hurry to get water, you can keep topping off the water level. The system will overflow if too full.

Maintenance 

  • Clean the filter cartridge seasonally for best results:

    • Unscrew the filter wing-nut and remove the filter cartridge, retaining the washer to be re-installed. ​

    • Using a green scrub pad (or the coarse side of a sponge) lightly scrub the cartridge under cold water for 30 seconds. You just need to exfoliate the outer layer. This will remove clogs and return the filter to its optimum speed. It will also look bright and new! Do not use hot water or scrub too hard, which may damage the filter. 

    • While the filter is out, you may want to wash the glass. Use warm water and soap. Hot water can cause the glass to crack. 

    • When re-installing the cartridge, the wing-nut should be securely hand tightened so the washer forms a seal. 

  • Keep your system out of direct sunlight. Algae may start to form on the glass if the system is exposed to prolonged sunlight.  If so, simply wash the glass out with water and vinegar. 

  • For best results we recommend changing your filter cartridge annually. Any gravity filter cartridge that fits can be used. We recommend Aquacera CeraMetix 7" Imperial.
