How it Works:
Candle Filter Maintenance:
For Best results, the ceramic candle needs to be cleaned regularly and should be replaced periodically. The frequency will depend on the condition of the water supply. A reduced flow of water into the bottom chamber is an indication that cleaning is necessary. To clean the candle, first remove it from the purifier unit. Hold the candle under gently running water and using a stiff brush or the back of a butter knife removes the visible impurities from the candles surface. Scrub off the outer layer of the ceramic filter with a kitchen type scourer (e.g. back of a butter knife) scrubbing it in an up and down motion under running tap. Never use soap or detergents on the candle.
Candle Filter Installation:
No tools are necessary; place washer on threaded stem of filter. Place stem of filter through hole inside upper unit. Hand-tighten with wing nut.
Trouble Shooting Slow Filtration:
Remove the candle filter from the purifier and run water briefly in reverse through the filter candle to remove any possible blockage. Soak the candle filter in the kitchen sink for 2 hours; this gets rid of any fiber or loose particles. See candle Maintenance for cleaning instructions.
