Safety
These instructions are provided to assist the qualified installer.
Check your local Yellow Pages for the name of the nearest
Manitowoc distributor, or call Manitowoc Ice, Inc. for information.
Always follow these safety precautions when installing and
operating the water filter system:
The ArcticPure™ water filtration systems are designed to reduce
coarse and fine particulate matter from the incoming potable water
supply. Chlorine will be reduced in the water so as not to adversely
affect the ice produced or the equipment components. Siliphos®
scale and corrosion inhibitor is automatically fed into the water to
inhibit the formation of scale on water solenoids and evaporator
plates. The NSF seal on these products is recognized worldwide as
a sign that the product to which it is affixed complies with the
public health requirements.
DO NOT use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after
the system.
DO NOT use a torch or other high temperature sources near filter
or cartridge.
DO NOT install on line pressure above 125 psi (862 kPa).
DO NOT install on hot water line. Maximum temperature allowed is
100°F (38°C).
DO NOT install in direct sunlight.
DO NOT reverse connections. The system must be installed with
the inlet and outlet as labeled.
DO NOT install ArcticPure™ filter systems in locations where they
can be damaged by other free-standing equipment.
PROTECT from freezing.
INSTALLATION must comply with existing state or local plumbing
codes.
This piece of equipment is made in America and has American sizes
on hardware. All metric conversions are approximate and vary in size.

checked?
•
•
Has the filter system been installed away from heavy traffic
areas?
To change the filter:
•
Is the system installed securely to the mounting surface?
•
Has the water supply line been checked for suitability? (Refer
to Water Service section, page 7).
•
Have the water supply lines been securely installed into the
inlet/outlet ports?
Every 6 months or when water pressure through the system
drops below 20 psi, whichever occurs first.
1. Rotate the cartridge 1/4 turn to the left. The cartridge should
easily release. Dispose of used cartridge.

•
The filter has trapped water-borne sediment and the water
flow has stopped or water pressure through the filter has
dropped below 20 psi.
•
The maximum life of the carbon filter has been reached and
the filter will no longer reduce chlorine to acceptable levels.
•
The Siliphos has been completely dissolved and hard scale
build-up may accelerate.
