DO NOT DISCARD - GIVE THIS MANUAL TO THE OWNER AFTER INSTALLATION
• Installation must conform to all local plumbing codes and regulations.
• Do NOT use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or
after the system.
• Connect system to cold water supply only! Water temperature must not exceed 100°F/38°C.
• Do NOT solder plumbing connections attached to the filter housing or inlet valve. High temperature will damage these
components.
• Do NOT over-tighten fitting connections into inlet valve or housing outlet. Always back-up valves and fittings with a
wrench to avoid turning the valve.
• Allow a minimum of 3” under the housing to allow for sump removal and filter replacement.
• Do NOT mount the system near a heat source or above the electrical wiring or any device or area that would be
adversely affected by water.
• Do NOT mount the system behind equipment. The unit must be easily accessible for filter replacement.
• Failure to change cartridges per recommended intervals with Supera® replacement cartridges may lead to system
failure and property damage.

Installation Precautions
•
•
•
•
Do NOT install the system backwards with the feed water line connected to the outlet.
Do NOT use liquid pipe compounds for fitting connections. USE two to three wraps of teflon tape.
Do NOT allow system to freeze. Turn off water supply to housing and drain housing if temperature falls below 32°F.
Do NOT install system in direct sunlight or where system is exposed to harsh chemicals or may be subjected to being
struck by moving equipment, carts, mops or any other item that may cause damage.
• IF water hammer is evident, install water hammer arrestors before Supera® unit.
Installation Procedure
1. Turn off all equipment to be fed by the Supera® Water Filtration System.
2. Locate water supply cut-off valve and turn off.
3. Install a 1/2” full-flow ball valve on the water supply side that will feed the water system.
4. Anchor the Supera® Water Filtration System on a wall stud or suitable mounting material spanning wall studs.
5. Run a suitable line from the 1/2” full-flow ball valve at the tap water source to the inlet ball valve on the left side of the
Supera® Water Filtration System. Use 2-3 wraps of teflon tape and brace the inlet ball valve on the system with a wrench
when connecting the feed water line. NOTE: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN CONNECTION FITTING INTO BALL VALVE.
6. Select the appropriate size tubing for the equipment being fed and connect it to the outlet of the Supera® Water Filtration
System. NOTE: DO NOT connect the tubing to the equipment at this time. Prior to making connection to the equipment this
line will be used to facilitate fl ushing the system. As an option, a drain valve in a tee on the outlet side of the Supera® Water
Filtration System could be provided in the line to facilitate fl ushing when changing filters.
7. With Supera® inlet valve closed, slowly open the 1/2” full-flow ball valve at the tap water source. Check for leaks.
8. If a drain valve was not installed on the outlet side of the system, hold the tubing that will connect to equipment in a clean
bucket or over sink or drain. Open the system inlet feed valve and allow water to flush through system for 10 minutes at the
specified system flow rate to allow air and any carbon fines to escape. NOTE: NO ACTIVATION IS REQUIRED FOR THE
SUPERA® WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM TO PERFORM PROPERLY. FLUSHING IS RECOMMENDED TO ALLOW AIR TO
ESCAPE THE SYSTEM AND REMOVE ANY CARBON FINES PRIOR TO CONNECTING TO EQUIPMENT.

9. Make certain that the end of the tubing to be connected to the equipment is clean and sanitized.
10. Connect tubing to equipment. Open all water supply valves and check for leaks.
11. If no leaks, turn on equipment and check for normal operation.
12. Attach the Service Log to the Installed Supera® Water Filtration System and fill in install date.
Operation
With adequate pressure, normal operation of the Supera® Water Filtration System is completely automatic. Dependable operation involves only monitoring of outlet pressure, periodic filter changes and service documentation.
Pressure Gauge Monitoring
Periodically monitor the pressure gauge on the Supera® Water Filtration System unit. If the needle on the gauge ever
enters the red zone it may be an indication that the filters have become clogged with sediment. Ideally the pressure
should never drop into the red zone.

Filter Cartridge Replacement Procedure
2.
IMPORTANT: Determine whether all equipment connected to the Supera® Water
Filtration System must be turned off prior to shutting off water supply from
filters.
1. If required, turn off equipment.
2. Turn OFF water to Supera® Water Filtration System by closing Inlet Ball
Valve.
3. Press the red button to release pressure.
4. Remove housing(s) - use filter wrench if necessary.
5. Clean inside of housing sumps with warm water. If desired, disinfect housings
using a teaspoon of household bleach in a filter bowl of water. Let stand 5
minutes, and then discard and thoroughly rinse sump.
4.
6. Insert new cartridges into filter housings. Match cartridge model numbers to
model numbers on the system bracket.
7. Make certain the O-ring is properly positioned and reinstall filter housings
(hand tighten only - the filter wrench is not required). Check O-ring for damage
and replace if damaged or distorted.
6.
6.
8. Slightly open the inlet ball valve; push the red pressure relief button to release
trapped air until a small amount of water comes out - release the red button and
fully open the ball valve.
9. Open the flush valve downline from the filter housing (if equipped) and flush
the new cartridges to drain or bucket for two (2) minutes or until water runs clear.
If no flush valve is present, disconnect line from equipment to flush to drain.
10.VERY IMPORTANT: With water supply inlet valve OPEN and water flow
confirmed, turn on connected equipment. Failure to supply water to equipment
may cause serious damage.
8.
11. Record filter change.
Replacement Filter Cartridges
Supera® Water Filtration Systems are designed, tested, and certified with
Supera® filter cartridges with proven performance, size and operating
capacities. Use of replacement cartridges other than those specified will void
warranties, certifications and may compromise equipment protection, water
quality and cartridge life.

Maintenance
The only routine maintenance your Supera® Water Filtration System should ever require is periodic filter cartridge changes
or replacement sump O-rings. Filter changes are necessary for optimum performance of your foodservice equipment. If the
system sizing recommendations have been followed the Supera® Water Filtration System is designed to provide a six (6)
month filter replacement interval on most tap water.
Filter Change Frequency
Several situations will mandate filter changes. Complete filter sets should be changed when any of the following apply:
• Six (6) Months have passed since unit installation or previous filter change.
• Reduced water flow.
• Pressure gauge needle enters the red zone or drops below pressure required for equipment operation.
If filter change frequency is less than 6 months due to pressure drop, it may be necessary to add additional prefiltration or
evaluate system sizing recommendations.
