Operation and Maintenance Specifications
NOTES
1. replacement filters can be purchased directly from Multipure Corporation. The replacement filter model number is CB6.
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.

II.
Installing the Faucet
Multipure’s chrome-plated faucet can be installed through a standard sink hole, if one is
available. If you have a hole for a side spray hose on your sink, that hole may be used
for your drinking water faucet, eliminating the need to drill a hole for the faucet.
The following instructions are for installing at your sink the special drinking water faucet
included with your below sink model. Determine the type of faucet included with your
unit and review the instructions for installing your type of faucet.
Faucet: For instructions on installing the faucet with tubing attached that was shipped
with Model MP750sB, see section II.B.
Faucet with Capacity Monitor: For instructions on installing the MP1200el Faucet and
Capacity Monitor, see section II.C.
II.A. Drilling the Hole
1. Porcelain Sink, Ceramic Sink, or Cast Acrylic Sink
Note: Porcelain, cast acrylic, and ceramic sink surface materials are extremely hard and can crack or chip quite
easily. Use extreme caution when drilling. Multipure 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.

Installing Faucet with Capacity Monitor (continued)
Operation and Maintenance of Models with Capacity Monitor:
Multipure Drinking water systems that are equipped with a capacity monitor let you know when the filter
should be changed. when you turn on your Multipure 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 (buzzer).
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.

Valve under your sink or the water shut-off valve where water enters your residence.
5. Turn on the water going to your drinking water system by turning the handle on the shut-off
valve that you installed (see section III).
6. Open the drinking water faucet by turning the handle on the faucet.
7. allow water to run through the unit for about 5 minutes so that all air can escape.
8. adjust the handle on the shut-off valve so that the water flow to the drinking water faucet does not exceed the flow rate
(0.75 gpm; to measure flow rate - it takes approximately 20 seconds to fill a quart at 0.75 gallons per minute)
9. Close the drinking water faucet and check for leaks.
a. Check the V-band to confirm that it is secured evenly around the housing top and bottom.
b. Hand-tighten the black knob on the V-band until it is as tight as possible.
10. allow water to run through the unit to waste for approximately 20 minutes to flush the filter of loose carbon fines.
note: units with the capacity monitor please disconnect the monitor before flushing the filter. The carbon fines will clog
the measuring device. Once you have flushed your filter, reconnect the monitor.
11. shut off the water and check for leaks.
Your Drinking water system is now ready for use. You can enjoy having great tasting, high quality water for drinking, cooking, beverages, food preparation, etc. whenever you want it.
Congratulations, you have completed the installation.

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 Multipure 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 Multipure Drinking water system, please call Multipure'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
1.
2.
3.
4.
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 Multipure 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.
