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 OptiPure replacement cartridges may lead to
system failure and property damage.

•
Do NOT install system on line pressure above 125 psi.
•
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 33°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 OptiPure unit.
Installation Procedure
1. Turn off all equipment to be fed by the OptiPure System.
2. Locate water supply cut-off valve and turn off.
3. Install a minimum 1/2” full-flow ball valve on the water supply side that will feed the water system.
4. Anchor the OptiPure System on a wall stud or suitable mounting material spanning wall studs.
5. Run a suitable line from the full-flow ball valve at the tap water source to the inlet ball valve on the left side of
the OptiPure 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 OptiPure
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 flushing the system. As an option, a flush valve in a tee on the
outlet side of the OptiPure system can be installed in the line to facilitate flushing when changing filters.
7. With OptiPure inlet valve closed, slowly open the full-flow ball valve at the tap water source. Check for leaks.
8. If a flush 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 OPTIPURE 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. Register your warranty.
Operation
With adequate pressure, normal operation of the OptiPure System is
completely automatic. Dependable operation involves only monitoring of
outlet pressure, periodic filter changes and service documentation.
1
Pressure Gauge Monitoring
Periodically monitor the pressure gauge on the OptiPure unit. If the
needle on the gauge ever enters the red zone (while the connected
equipment is in operation and water is flowing through the system to the
equipment) it may be an indication that the filters have become clogged
with sediment. Ideally ther pressure should never drop into the red zone
Maintenance
The only routine maintenance your OptiPure 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 OptiPure System is designed to provide a six (6) month filter replacement interval on most tap water.

4
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.
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.

Filter Cartridge Replacement Procedure
IMPORTANT: Determine whether all equipment connected to the
OptiPure System must be turned off prior to shutting off water supply
from filters.
1. Close inlet ball valve.
2. Relieve pressure downline by opening flush valve or briefly actuating equipment.
6
3. Turn cartridge to the left 1/4 turn until it stops.
4. Pull down on the cartridge until it clears head. Discard old cartridge.
5. Line up the upward-arrow on the new cartridge with the upward
pointing arrow on the head.
6. Push cartridge up into head until it stops and turn to right until it
stops. (The upward-arrow on the cartridge should align with the
downward-arrow on the head).
7. Open the inlet ball valve.
8. Open down-stream flush valve to flush new cartridge at the specified flow rate for a minimum of ten (10) minutes.

FilterTrak - Filter System Management Resource
The single biggest problem with filter systems is the
lack of attention after the system is installed. Many
times the equipment supplied by the filter systems
has a service problem related to water because the
filter system has not been maintained. This is simply
because personnel in the establishment change and
it becomes difficult to keep track of what filters are
needed and when. FilterTrak eliminates this problem
since it automatically notifies users when a scheduled
filter change is due and what filter cartridges are
needed via mail, fax, email or autoship.
For further information regarding OptiPure NSF Certified systems visit the NSF website at www.NSF.org.
OptiPure warrants the quality of workmanship of their system components and assembly, except for replacement
cartridges and membranes, for a period of 36 months. OptiPure Systems are designed, tested and certified with
OptiPure cartridges. Use of replacement cartridges or parts other than those specified will void warranties and Certifications, and compromise equipment protection, water quality and cartridge life.
