First Stage:
Mechanical
Filtration
A melt blown polypropylene
outer sleeve
prefilters all water flowing through your
system, reducing rust, sediment and
other debris. This prefiltratlon significantly
Increases the life of the carbon block,
therefore extending the life of the Filter.

The unit of measure is either galtons or
liters, depending
on the programming

the factory. The water drops at the
bottom of the screen graphically show
how much of the capacity of your filter
remains, much like a fuel gauge. By
pressing the display button you can

System performance and reduction of
contaminants
Isdetermined by proper
flow rote. This unit as tested under ANSI/
NSF Standards 53 & 42 must be used at a
flow rate no greater than 0.75 gpm.
Exceeding this flow rate will affect the
ability of the system to reduce contaminant levels.
