The Water filter is used to retain minerals in your
water and to provide clean moisture. The filter
life is determined by the average daily use of
your humidifier and the water hardness in your
area. The harder the water, the greater the
amount of minerals in the water and the more
often you will need to replace the filter. It is
strongly recommended that the filter is replaced
every 2 months, (depending on use), or when
white dust is emitted from the unit.
1. Make sure the unit is turned off and disconnect
from the mains outlet. Remove Water Tank.
2. If replacing, remove the Filter from the base
and dispose of according to local regulations.

the new filter. Soak filter thoroughly by
immersing filter in water for 5 minutes. Install
the filter into the base.
4. Fill the water tank with clean, cool tap water
and replace it in the base. Wait 15 minutes
for water to pass through the filter before
turning on the unit. The 15 minute wait is
necessary to ensure that the filter is properly
saturated and the water is at its optimal level
for best performance.
Cleaning and Maintenance Instruction
Humidifiers provide comfort by adding moisture
to dry, heated indoor air. To get the most benefit
from the humidifier and to avoid product misuse,
follow all instructions carefully, specifically the
operation, care and maintenance guidelines.

Cleaning your humidifier every one or two weeks,
depending on the water conditions is important
in order to maintain efficient, healthy, odour-free
operation. Water quality varies widely and,
combined with build-up of mineral scale in your
humidifier, may under certain conditions promote
the growth of micro-organisms in the water tank.

gasoline, glass or furniture polish, or boiling
water to clean any part of your Ultrasonic
Humidifier. These will interfere with the
proper operation of your unit and may affect
its appearance.
• DO NOT use sharp or metal objects to clean
mineral deposits in the reservoir. Contact
with sharp objects can result in damage to
the plastic.
• Mineral deposits should be soaked for up to
20 minutes in plain vinegar and water to help
with their removal.

the dishwasher.
