The Bio-Logic® has been carefully
conceived to provide adequate germicidal dosage throughout the disinfection
chamber.
Virtually all microorganisms are

2. Suspended microorganisms are exposed to the ultraviolet rays emitted by
the germicidal lamp.
Safe
3. The LED indicator light, located on the ballast, provides visual indication
of germicidal lamp operation.
No danger of overdosing, no
addition of chemicals
4. Water leaving the purifier is ready for use, no further contact time is required.

Model BIO-1.5
1.5 GPM
• Fused Quartz Sleeve - Insures optimum lamp output at normal potable water
temperature.
• Mounting Brackets - allow for easier install to secure surface.
Model BIO-1.5 PWP
• Dual Filter Housing - Sturdy, 5 micron sediment filter cartridge removes dirt,
rust, scale, silt, sand and other water suspended particles while the 5 micron
carbon filter removes chlorine, THM’s, pesticides and other related volatile organic
hydrocarbons.
• Installation Kit - Includes everything necessary to hook up
entire system - tubing, saddle valve (saddle valve fits feed pipes
between 3/8” to 1/2”) and long reach faucet.
• Mounting Bracket - Stainless steel bracket with all system
components factory installed. Unit is ready for hook up under the
sink as soon as it’s removed from carton.
INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE
Model BIO-1.5 PWP
1.5 GPM
The purifier is installed horizontally as close as possible to the point of use. Connection of the inlet and outlet to water
supply and insertion of power plug into 3-wire grounded GFCI outlet is all that is required.
Ordinary maintenance consists of routine cleaning the quartz sleeve (once monthly or more or less frequently where
conditions dictate). Lamp replacement is recommended every 10,000 hours of operation (approximately 14 months of
continuous service).
Typical filter cartridge replacement is recommended every 12 months.
PWP (Pure Water PackTM) version requires install of long reach faucet (included) and connection to sink or ice maker.
