NOTES
1. Replacement filters can be purchased directly from Multi-Pure Corporation. The replacement filter model number is CB6.
The approximate retail price of the replacement filter is also shown above. Price excludes sales tax and shipping and
handling fees (prices subject to change without notice).
2. Filter life will vary in proportion to the amount of water used and the level of impurities in the water being processed.
Replace the filter cartridge when the first of the following occurs: (a) annually; (b) when the unit's rated capacity is
reached; (c) the flow rate diminishes; (d) the filter becomes saturated with bad tastes and odors. The rated capacity of the
filter cartridge is 750 gallons for Models MP750SB and MP750SI; capacity of the MP1200EL is 1200 gallons.
3. MP1200EL comes with a capacity monitor that automatically flashes a yellow light when it is time to replace the filter.
4. Not intended to be used where the water is microbiologically unsafe or with water of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the unit. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
5. Do not allow water to freeze in the unit. If unit is exposed to freezing temperatures, drain water from unit and remove filter.
6. Do not allow water to sit in unit for extended periods of time (10 or more days) without being used. If unit is to be left unused
for more than 10 days, drain all water from the system and remove the filter. Upon your return, reconnect the filter in the
housing and continue use. In the event water does sit in the unit for 10 or more days, the system should be flushed by
allowing water to flow to waste for about 3 minutes; then continue use as normal.
7. To dispose of the used filter, remove it from the housing and place the old filter in your normal refuse. The filter disposed of
in a normal landfill will not release any chemical contamination but will probably continue to adsorb additional contaminants
that are disposed of in landfills.
8. Check for compliance with state and local laws and regulations.

easily. Use extreme caution when drilling. Multi-Pure Drinking Water Systems accepts no responsibility for consequential damage resulting from the installation of a faucet.
1. Select and mark the spot for mounting the faucet on your sink top.
a. Confirm that there are no reinforcing ribs under the sink location you select for your faucet.
b. If you have an extra hole in your sink for a rinsing hose, you may want to disconnect that hose
and use the existing hole for your drinking water faucet.
2. Using the hammer and center punch, make an indentation by tapping the center punch gently on the
ceramic/porcelain where the hole is to be drilled.
Mark the Spot
3. Use the ½" carbide tipped masonry drill bit to grind away the porcelain down to the metal, clearing
away enough porcelain to allow for drilling a hole without damaging the porcelain surface.
4. Carefully use the 7/16" ( or 1/2”) high speed steel drill bit (CAUTION: do not allow the 7/16" bit to
"grab" the porcelain - this would damage the porcelain surface) to completely drill a hole through the
metal sink.
2.

Stainless Steel or Metal Sink
You will need to use a 1/8" high speed drill bit in addition to the other tools
listed for the installation of a faucet on a stainless steel sink.
1. Select and mark the spot for mounting the faucet on your sink. If you
have an extra hole for a spray hose at your sink, you may want to disconnect that hose and use the existing hole for your drinking water
faucet.
2. Using the hammer and center punch, make an indentation where
the hole is to be drilled.
3. Use the 1/8" high speed steel drill bit to drill a pilot hole.
4. Use the 7/16" (or 1/2”) high speed steel drill bit to completely drill a hole through the stainless steel sink.

Operation and Maintenance of Models with Capacity Monitor:
Multi-Pure Drinking Water Systems that are equipped with a capacity monitor lets you know when the
filter should be changed. When you turn on your Multi-Pure drinking water faucet, and water flows
through the capacity monitor, the green light on the capacity indicator plate flashes several times to let
you know that the System has not reached its certified capacity. The number of green flashes will
decrease as the capacity of your monitor is used. When it flashes just two times, only 20% of your
capacity remains; one time indicates only 10% of the capacity remains. It is recommended that you
order a replacement filter when you reach the 20% capacity level.
A red light will flash alerting you that the capacity of your filter has been fully used and that you should
immediately replace the filter. You also will hear an audio alert.
As with all drinking water treatment devices which reduce certain contaminants by mechanical filtration, the capacity of the
filter will vary and is dependent upon type and level of contaminants in your water. It is recommended that a prefilter be
installed in front of models with a capacity monitor when used on water with high levels of particulate matter.
It is recommended that you replace the filter cartridge when the first of the following occurs: a) annually; b) the red light
flashes on the capacity indicator plate, indicating that the unit's rated capacity has been reached; c) the flow rate diminishes; or d) the filter becomes saturated with bad tastes and odors.

Filter Life
Filter life will vary in proportion to the amount of water used and the level of impurities in the water being processed. Claims
of capacity are not applicable to contaminants reduced by mechanical filtration because of broad variations in the quality
and quantity of physical matter in your drinking water. Your Multi-Pure filter will clog, protecting you from these contaminants, and your flow rate diminishes. For contaminants reduced by adsorption, filter life/capacity ranges from Model Nos.
MP750SB and MP750SI is 750 gallons; capacity for Model MP1200EL is 1200 gallons.
It is recommended that filters be replaced annually or sooner if needed. For optimum performance and to maintain your
warranty, it is essential that the filter be replaced on a regularly scheduled basis as follows: (a) annually; (b) when the
unit's rated capacity is reached (see Operation and Maintenance Specifications, Section I); (c) the flow rate diminishes; (d)
the filter becomes saturated with bad tastes and odors. When a capacity monitor is installed with its capacity-metered
faucet, a yellow light flashes at the rated capacity, which is 1200 gallons, indicating when the filter should be changed. It is
recommended that the filter be changed when the yellow light flashes, annually, or the flow rate diminishes.
If you have any questions regarding the installation of your Multi-Pure Drinking Water System, please call Multi-Pure's
Customer Relations Department toll-free (800) 622-9206 ext. 175.

Maintenance Problems
Flushing / disinfecting the unit housing: MultiPure recommends that you not allow water to sit in
a unit for extended periods of time without it being
used. If a unit is left unused for more than 10 days,
it may need to be flushed/disinfected before you
resume use.
To

5.
flush a unit that may be contaminated:
Confirm that water is turned off to the unit.
Relieve the water pressure (if below sink unit) by opening the unit faucet.
Remove and discard the used filter.
Clean & rinse out the inside of the housing.
Add 5 to 7 drops of bleach, such as Clorox™ or Purex™ (5 ¼% sodium hypochlorite) to the
bottom canister.
6. Reconnect the housing top and bottom without the replacement filter.
7. Turn on water and let unit housing fill up with the water/bleach solution.
8. Allow unit to soak for at least 30 minutes.
a. Countertop Units: To disinfect the spout, place your finger over the tip of the spout and turn
the unit upside down. Repeat this procedure 2 or 3 times during the 30-minute soak period.
b. Below Sink Units: To disinfect the faucet spout, remove the spout and place it in a container
with one-quart of water and bleach (use 5 drops of bleach) and allow to soak for 30 minutes.
9. After the housing has soaked for 30 minutes, disassemble the top and bottom and pour out the
water/bleach solution. Rinse out the inside of the housing.
10. Replace the filter (cartridge) following the instructions with the new filter.
11. Follow the instructions with the replacement filter for reconnecting and flushing your unit.
Stuck / Sticking Diverter Valve: Normally caused
by a mineral (calcium) buildup around the diverter
stem. There are two methods for solving this problem (Vegetable Oil or Vinegar).
Vegetable Oil (Using vegetable oil to lubricate the diverter valve does not dissolve the mineral
deposits which build up and cause the sticking; thus it will be necessary to repeat this procedure
from time to time)
1. Unscrew diverter valve from faucet.
2. Pour a little vegetable oil in the inlet hole.
3. Pull the diverter valve stem in/out several times to lubricate it thoroughly.
4. Replace diverter valve on faucet.
Vinegar (Using vinegar to dissolve the mineral deposits may cause discoloration)
1. Unscrew diverter valve from faucet.
2. Soak diverter valve in vinegar for 10 minutes.
3. Rinse and replace diverter valve on faucet.
If these methods don’t work, it may be necessary to replace the diverter valve. Please contact Multi-Pure Customer Service at
800-622-9206 for assistance.
Diverter Stem Stuck (If diverter stem is not operating properly - sticking)
1. Disconnect diverter valve from faucet.
2. Push pin in -- if you can push the pin easily, there was air in the tubing.
3. Reconnect diverter valve.

emergency. CAUTION -- the Multi-Pure
System is not intended to be used where the
water is microbiologically unsafe or with
water of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the unit.
If water source is questionably
contaminated, it should be disinfected prior
to use. Add ¼ tsp of household bleach per
gallon of water; the Multi-Pure System will
remove this solution from the water. Hand
pump kits are available from Multi-Pure.
What causes "white" particles to appear in The natural minerals in the Multi-Pure water
Multi-Pure water when it is frozen or
solidify when the water is frozen, and those
boiled?
minerals appear as white flakes or specks
when the ice melts.
Natural minerals are beneficial to good
health and their existence in drinking water
(in normal quantities) should not cause any
alarm. Minerals can be removed by Reverse
Osmosis technology, which is also available
from Multi-Pure on request.
Why does the Multi-Pure System reduce
Minerals are totally dissolved in solution and The materials used in Multi-Pure Drinking
Volatile Organic Chemicals, but not natural do not have an actual physical size; thus, the Water Systems are specially selected for
minerals?
minerals pass through the filter unchanged. their ability to react with the chemicals in the
water, but not with natural minerals that are
beneficial to good health.
Should sediment be removed with a
standard filter first?
In areas with excessive sedimentation,
prefiltration will help extend the operational
efficiency of the Multi-Pure cartridge;
however, in most areas this is not
necessary.
Multi-Pure's solid carbon block filters are
compacted into a dense structure causing
every molecule of water to be forced through
microscopic pores of carbon, effectively
reducing a wide range of contaminants of
health concern, as well as adsorbing tastes
and odors and removing particulate matter
removed by typical activated carbon filters.
The Multi-Pure System contains a triple filter.
The outside material is a prefilter that helps
protect the solid carbon block surface from
prematurely clogging with large sediment.
What is the difference between a "water
softener" and the Multi-Pure Drinking
Water System?
Softeners are not used to treat drinking
water; they are used only to change the water
hardness. Softeners put sodium into the
water in exchange for magnesium or
calcium ions. Multi-Pure Drinking Water
Systems do not remove dissolved minerals,
so, the pH is not changed. Natural minerals
most often found in water are considered to
be essential to good health.
Soft water is good for bathing and laundering
and may extend the life of hot water heaters
and boilers. However, soft water should not
be used for watering plants or lawns. It is
recommended that you bypass a water
softener when installing your Multi-Pure
Drinking Water System.
Can the Multi-Pure System be used on
untreated water?
If water source is questionable, it should be
disinfected prior to use. Add ¼ tsp of
household bleach per gallon of water; the
Multi-Pure System will remove this solution
from the water. Consult your nearest public
water utility for assistance or guidelines on
proper treatment of untreated water.
Multi-Pure Systems are designed to be used
on treated water systems; they are not
intended to be used where the water is
microbiologically unsafe or with water of
unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the unit. Systems
certified for cyst reduction may be be used
on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
Why is the compressed activated carbon
block filtration system more efficient than
activated carbon (loose granular)
systems?
29
The Water Quality Association reports that
"an activated carbon filter can reduce
organics and solid particles, as well as
offensive tastes and odors." Only precoat
and solid carbon block filters are engineered
to provide 0.5 micron mechanical filtration.
For instructions in Spanish, please turn the manual over.
Be sure to replace your filter at least once a year, or sooner if needed.
