Important Safety Instructions
 WARNING



To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
or injury when using your appliance, follow
these basic precautions:
Read all instructions before using the water dispenser.
Never clean parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion.
Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other water dispenser. The fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion.
-Save these instructions-
INSTALLATION GUIDELINES:
 Remove the exterior and interior packing.
 Place your appliance on a countertop or surface that is strong enough to support the dispenser
when it is fully loaded. The unit is provided with four plastic feet, if it does not sit level on the floor,
adjust the front feet to level the unit well to the floor.
 Locate the appliance away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.).
Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical
consumption. Extreme cold ambient temperatures may also cause the appliance not to perform
properly.
 Allow 5 inches of space between the water dispenser and the wall, which allows for proper air
circulation to cool the compressor.
 Plug the appliance into an exclusive properly installed-grounded wall outlet. Do not cut or remove
the third (ground) prong from the power cord under any circumstances. Any questions concerning
power and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Avanti
Products service center.
 This water dispenser is not recommended for outdoor use.
 Do not locate the dispenser in area where the temperature may fall below freezing (32º F).
 Keep area around dispenser free of dust and dirt.
 Keep the reserve supply of water bottles away from excessive heat and light.
 Never unplug the water cooler, except for maintenance.


ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Warning
Improper use of the grounded plug can result in the risk of electrical shock. If the power cord is
damaged, have it replaced by an authorized Avanti Products service center.
This appliance should be properly grounded for your safety. The power cord of this appliance
is equipped with a three-prong plug which mates with standard three prong wall outlets to
minimize the possibility of electrical shock.
Do not under any circumstances cut or remove the third ground prong from the power cord supplied.
For personal safety, this appliance must be properly grounded.
This appliance requires a standard 115/120 Volt AC ~/60Hz electrical ground outlet with three-prong.
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly
grounded. When a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your responsibility and obligation
to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
The cord should be secured behind the appliance and not left exposed or dangling to prevent
accidental injury.
The appliance should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage
rating that matches the rating label on the appliance. This provides the best performance and also
prevent overloading house wiring circuits that could cause a fire hazard from overheated. Never
unplug the appliance by pulling the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull straight out from
the receptacle. Repair or replace immediately all power cords that have become frayed or otherwise
damaged. Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along its length or at either end.
When moving the appliance, be careful not to damage the power cord.

EXTENSION CORD
Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, it is strongly recommended that you do
not use an extension cord with this appliance. However, if you must use an extension cord it is
absolutely necessary that it be a UL/CUL-Listed, 3-wire grounding type appliance extension cord
having a grounding type plug and outlet and that the electrical rating of the cord be 115 volts and at
least 10 amperes.

SURGE PROTECTOR
Most electrical appliances use a series of electric control boards to operate. These boards are very
susceptible to power surges and could be damaged or destroyed.
If the appliance is going to be used in an area or if your city / country is prone to power surges /
outages; it is suggested that you use a power surge protector for all electrical devices / appliances you
use. The surge protector that you select must have a surge block high enough to protect the
appliance it is connected to. If you have any questions regarding the type and size of surge protector
needed contact a licensed electrician in your area.
Damages due to power surges are not considered a manufacturer covered defect and will void your
product warranty.

Before connecting the appliance to the power source, let it stand upright for approximately 2
hours. This will reduce the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during
transportation.
Remove the bottle stabilizer ring (IF SUPPLIED) from the top of the water dispenser as this
part is not needed when using the ZeroWater bottle kit. This part is only used for delivery
type water bottles.
The water dispenser is pre-cleaned at the factory but the reservoir and water lines must be flushed
with fresh water before use as follows:
Keep the unit unplugged.
Fill water tank with tap water full to capacity. Wait for 15 minutes as indicated above.
Slide child safety button then push the hot water faucet (See the Hot Water Faucet diagram on
the next page) until water comes out, then stop.
Plug the dispenser into the electrical outlet. Locate and flip the COLD (Green) and HOT (Red)
power switches at the rear of the unit to the ON position.
We are ready to complete the first cycle. In order to do that, wait for the hot water to reach
temperature in approximately 10 minutes, and then wait for the cold to reach temperature
(another 40 minutes, approximately).
Warning: The water coming out of the back may be scolding hot
Flip the COLD (Green) and HOT (Red) power switches to the OFF position.
Unplug the dispenser from the electrical outlet. Proceed to drain the water from the faucets one at
a time until no more water remains. (Note: To facilitate this operation, use a large container).
Then, drain any water left in the tanks by opening the drain plug located on the back, until it drains
completely.
Proceed to close the drain cap tightly and ensure there are no leaks.
Push water faucet buttons to insure water flows from both faucets.
Plug dispenser back into the electrical outlet.
Flip the COLD (Green) and HOT (Red) power switches to the ON position.
Now you are ready to use your water dispenser.
NOTE:
Your water dispenser has been cleaned and sanitized before leaving the factory, but in case a taste
problem develops, remove the ZeroWater bottle kit and place two tablespoons of baking soda directly
into the water intake and add tap water and repeat basic operations previously outlined, except turn
hot water switch “OFF” to avoid leaving residues in hot water tank. Once you have flushed the water
cooler, replace the ZeroWater bottle kit and fill as indicated above.

USE AND CARE
IMPORTANT!
Please read before first use.
If you are using a water cooler with this product, please read this! Our ZeroWater®
Filter Bottle fits most standard water coolers AFTER the splash guard is removed!
If the splash guard is not removed, the float valve on the ZeroWater® Filter Bottle
will not work and will cause your water to spill!
DIRECTIONS FOR REMOVING THE SPLASH GUARD
If you look into the reservoir you’ll see the splash guard with a spike, used to pierce
a hole in the cap of bulk water containers. Grip the splash guard, turn it counter
clockwise and pull up on it. This should remove the splash guard from the water
cooler. If you have further questions about this process with your particular model,
you may need to refer to your user’s manual. If you still need assistance, please call
our Customer Service number.
If you are using the Avanti
Water Dispenser
Model WDTZ000
Simply remove the ring as
shown. (Only if provided on
your model).
If you are using any other
standard water dispenser
remove the entire splash
guard assembly as
shown.

Use and Care Instructions
Please read before first use.
INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE INSTALLING CARTRIDGE
AND FIRST USE
1. Clean all plastic components and filter cartridges by washing and rinsing
thoroughly with warm water only. Rinse the Filter Bottle thoroughly when
washing with soap.
2. Note: the Filter Bottle components, filter cartridges and TDS meter are not
dishwasher safe.
3. Discard all plastic bags. This may be a suffocation hazard to young children.
ASSEMBLY
1. Take the lower chamber and place the lower chamber
divider rim firmly on the top. The rippled part of the white
rim should be overlapping the lower chamber. If assembled
upside down, there will be leakage. Be sure it fits tightly
on the lower chamber (see ZeroWater® Filter Bottle
components
on page 4).
A
2. Align the nut (included) into the recessed area at the inner
bottom of the lower chamber and screw the float valve
tightly through the hole on bottom of lower chamber (inset
A).
Do not prop the Filter Bottle on the float valve once
assembled, as it is fragile and will break.
3. Place the lower chamber on top of your cooler with the float
valve fitting inside the cooler’s reservoir (see Using Your
ZeroWater® Filter Bottle with a Standard Water Cooler on
page 6).
4. Install filter cartridges now, using steps 1 through 3 from
instructions on next page.
5. Place the upper chamber on top of the lower chamber. Be
sure that the lower chamber divider ring is tightly affixed
around the lower chamber (see ZeroWater® Filter Bottle
components on page 4).
6. Place the lid on top of the upper chamber.

USE AND CARE
INSTALLATION OF FILTER CARTRIDGES
1. Install the filter adapter to the upper chamber by turning
clockwise until you feel a tight and secure fit.
Ensure the “O-Ring” is in place and not bulging outward.
2. Remove filter cartridges from packaging.
3. Tightly screw cartridges into the holes on the bottom side of the adapter to
obtain a complete seal with the O-ring. Do not over-tighten as the O-ring will
become warped and not seal completely allowing unfiltered water to leak to the
lower chamber and your water will not read “000”(see ZeroWater® Filter Bottle
components on page 4).
4. Place upper chamber with attached filter cartridges back onto the lower chamber
divider rim of the lower chamber (see ZeroWater® Filter Bottle components on
page 4).
If new filters are exposed to cold temperatures for prolonged periods, keep filters at
room temperature for several hours before passing water through the first time.
USING YOUR FILTER BOTTLE WITH A STANDARD
WATER COOLER (sold separately)
1. Unplug your cooler.
2. Drain all water from the cooler using the spigots and the drain plug in the back
of the cooler. Using a cooler without water in it, when plugged in, can cause it
to smoke and break. Make sure you secure the drain plug when you are finished
draining the cooler.
3. Be sure you have removed the splashguard from the cooler reservoir. Refer to
page (2) for directions.
4. Clean the reservoir and spigots by mixing 1 tablespoon of baking soda into 1
gallon of hot water and pouring the solution directly into the cooler reservoir.
5. Let solution sit for about 30 minutes and then drain through spigots and drain
plug.
6. Flush the cooler with three gallons of plain hot water using same method. Secure
the drain plug. The total capacity of the bottom chamber is three gallons.
7. Do not replace the splashguard or spike fixture.
8. Now your cooler is ready for your assembled ZeroWater® Filter Bottle. Add water
before plugging cooler back into electrical outlet (See step 6 under section “Filling
the ZeroWater® Filter Bottle with Tap Water on page 7).”
USE AND CARE
FILLING THE FILTER BOTTLE WITH TAP WATER
1. Remove lid.
2. Slowly fill the upper reservoir with cold tap water. Be careful not to dump
water too quickly into the upper chamber when the lower chamber is
empty because
it may tip and spill.
3. Allow water to pass from the upper chamber through the filters to the
lower chamber. Water will be ready to drink in several minutes.
4. Test the water using the TDS meter to confirm a “000” reading.
5. If it doesn’t read “000”, flush the water out, check all connections and
seals.
6. Pour water through.
7. Do not over fill. The first time you fill your Filter Bottle it will take extra
water to fill the cooler reservoir. When water in the lower chamber
reaches the line marked “MAXIMUM WATER LEVEL”, do not put any
more water in the upper chamber, as it may leak. The upper chamber is
not designed to be a long term reservoir.
Safety Precautions: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe
or of unknown quality without proper disinfection before or after the
system. Individuals requiring water of specific microbiological purity should
consult their physician. Unless notified otherwise, municipal water is
potable.

USE AND CARE
Filter Cartridges
FILTER CARTRIDGE LIFE
How often the cartridge needs to be replaced is determined by how much
water you put through the system and how hard the cartridge has to work
to clean the water you put through it. The more dissolved solids in your
water (or the higher your TDS reading), the shorter the cartridge life. It
is essential to change the filters with a reading of “006” on the included
TDS meter in order for the product to continue to perform as represented.
The longevity of the filter may vary based on local water conditions.
Under laboratory protocols, a single filter was rated for 22.5 gallons in the
certification process. Store filters at or near room temperature.
REPLACEMENT FILTER CARTRIDGES
Replacement filter cartridges can be purchased in packs of 2, 4 or 8 from
your local retailer. For replacement parts and pricing, call Customer Service
toll free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-503-2939.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
My ZeroWater Filter Bottle is brand new
but the water doesn’t read “000”?
First, check the reading directly in the
lower chamber. If the water in the lower
chamber does NOT read “000”, either
the lower chamber is not clean, or the
filters are not functioning properly. Try
cleaning the lower chamber and check
to see that filters are installed properly.
If the water in the lower chamber
DOES read “000”, your Filter Bottle is
functioning properly and the problem is
an unclean cooler reservoir or spigot. Try
cleaning the cooler reservoir and spigot
again.
®
The TDS Meter does not turn on.
Remember that you should not dip the
meter too far into the water as it will
short circuit. If you have used the meter
according to instructions, try replacing
the batteries.
My filter emits a strong odor.
Test the water that has run through
the filter. Most likely it will read higher
than “006”, which indicates it’s time to
replace your filter.
The lower chamber fills slowly.
It takes time to give you high quality
water. We regulate the flow to ensure
the water has enough time to pass
through each filtering stage and be
cleaned thoroughly.
My cooler is leaking from the lower
chamber divider rim.
Be sure the lower chamber divider rim
is placed with the correct side up and
is seated tightly to ensure the best seal
possible. Do not over fill upper chamber
beyond the capacity of the lower
chamber. The upper chamber is not
designed to be a long-term reservoir.

meter from the water.
5. Do not use in hot water.
CHANGING THE TDS METER BATTERIES (two 1.5v button cell)
1. Use a fingernail to remove the cap at the end that says “TDS”.
2. Replace the old batteries with two new batteries (Battery Type LR44).
3. Replace the cap.
UNDERSTANDING THE TDS METER
The TDS meter helps you put a number on what your taste buds are already telling
you about what’s in your water. It measures for the things in water that can give it
a taste. The higher the reading on the water, the more substances dissolved in your
water.
For a more scientific explanation, it is showing you the total number of detectable
dissolved solids in water. With the push of a button, the electrodes in the bottom
of the tester measure the amount of ions in the water and convert that amount
to a number that displays on the screen. The number represents the amounts of
detectable dissolved solids in parts per million that exist in your water sample.
The meter is primarily used to indicate ZeroWater® filter replacement at 006. It may
also be used as a simple method to compare water quality by displaying the Total of
the Dissolved Solids (TDS) in parts per million only. The meter does not specify what
substances comprise the Total. The meter should not be used to assess the safety
or purity of water, which should only be undertaken by a qualified laboratory.
WARRANTY/REGISTRATION
REPLACEMENT FILTER CARTRIDGE WARRANTY
Though replacement filter cartridges do have a 30 day warranty for manufacturing
defects, there is no money back guarantee otherwise. To place a claim for a defective
cartridge, you must first speak to a customer service representative who will help you
trouble shoot any problems. If a problem is found that may be due to a manufacturing
defect, they will then give you instructions on how to send back the cartridges to
be tested by our laboratory. Depending on whether or not the lab determines the
cartridges to be defective, they will either be replaced or returned to you. Please
remember that we do not and cannot warrant the life of the filter cartridges since there
are many variables that affect the life of each cartridge, including weather, your local
treatment facility, consumption rate, etc. We can only provide estimates based on the
experiences of other customers. A shortened cartridge life alone does not necessarily
mean that you have a defective cartridge.

3. Deshágase de todas las bolsas plásticas. Estas representan un peligro de asfixia
para niños pequeños.
ENSAMBLAJE
A
1. Tome la Cámara inferior; encima de ella coloque firmemente
el Borde Divisor. La parte ondulada del borde blanco debe
encajar y quedar sobre la Cámara inferior. Si lo ensambla de
cabeza, entonces causará que el agua de la botella se derrame
hacia afuera. Por tanto, asegúrese que el borde encaje fuerte y
correctamente con la Cámara inferior (vea los componentes del
Botellón con Filtro ZeroWater® en la página 16).
2. Alinea la tuerca con la area adentro de la Cámara interior
y enrosque firmemente la Válvula de Flote en el agujero
al fondo de la Cámara Inferior (recuadro A). No fuerce el
Botellón y la Válvula de Flote, ya que es frágil y se puede
dañar.
3. Coloque la Cámara Inferior sobre el Dispensador de
Agua, asegurándose que la Válvula de Flote quede dentro
del depósito de agua (vea Usando su Botellón con Filtro
ZeroWater® con Dispensador de Agua Estándar, en la página
18).
4. Ahora instale los cartuchos del filtro, siguiendo los pasos 1 a
3 de las instrucciones en la página siguiente.
5. Coloque la Cámara Superior encima de la Cámara Inferior.
Asegúrese que el Borde Divisor esté firmemente asegurado en

4. Coloque la Cámara Superior con los cartuchos del filtro ya incorporados y encájela
con la Cámera Inferior y el Borde Divisor (Vea Botellón con Filtro ZeroWater® en la
página 16).
Si los filtros nuevos están expuestos a temperaturas frías por un período de tiempo
prolongado, antes de instalarlos deja que los filtros lleguen a temperatura ambiente
unas cuantas horas antes de pasar el agua por primera vez.
USANDO SU BOTELLON DE AGUA CON UN DISPENSADOR
DE AGUA (VENDIDO POR SEPARADO).
1. Desenchufe el Dispensador de Agua
2. Drene toda el agua que queda en el Dispensador usando sus grifos y sacando el
remanente destapando el desagüe. No use el dispensador cuando no tiene agua;
si está enchufado y lo usa, puede causar humo y que se malogre. Asegúrese de
volver a taponear el desagüe cuando termine de drenar el dispensador.
3. Asegúrese de retirar el protector contra salpicaduras del depósito de agua del
dispensador. Favor revise la página 14 para las instrucciones.
4. Limpie el depósito de agua y los grifos con una solución de 1 Cucharada de polvo
de hornear mezclado en 1 galón de agua caliente. Vierta la mezcla directamente en
el depósito de agua del dispensador.
5. Espere unos 30 minutos para que la solución actúe y luego drene el dispensador
usando sus grifos y sacando el remanente de agua destapando el desagüe.
6. Vierta 3 galones de agua caliente usando el mismo método, para enjuagar el
depósito y dispensador. Vuelva a taponear el desagüe. La capacidad de la
Cámara Inferior es de 3 galones.
7. No vuelva colocar el protector contra salpicaduras ni la púa.
8. Ahora su Dispensador está listo para su Botellón con Filtro ZeroWater®. Añada el
agua antes de volver a enchufar el dispensador a la toma eléctrica (vea el paso # 6 Llenando su Botellón con Filtro ZeroWater® con agua de grifo en la página 19).

USE AND CARE
LLENANDO SU BOTELLON CON FILTRO ZEROWATER® CON AGUA
DE GRIFO.
1. Retire la tapa.
2. Lentamente llene la Cámara Superior con agua de grifo fría. Cuando la
Cámara Inferior esté vacía, tenga cuidado de no verter muy rápido el agua
en la Cámara Superior porque esta podría perder el equilibrio y caerse,
derramando toda el agua.
3. Espere hasta que el agua pase de la Cámara Superior a través de los
filtros y llegue hasta a la Cámara Inferior. Esto puede tomar varios
minutos.
4. Use el Medidor TDS y verifique que la medida del agua es “000”.
5. Si el medidor no indica “000”, entonces drene toda el agua de ambas
Cámaras y vuelve a llenarlas con más agua.
6. No llene demasiado. La primera vez que llene su botellón va a
necesitar más agua, ya que también va a llenar el depósito de agua
del dispensador. Cuando el agua en la Cámara Inferior llegue a la linea
marcada “MAXIMUM WATER LEVEL”, ya no vierta más agua en la
Cámara Superior, porque podría rebalsarse y derramar toda el agua. La
Cámara Superior no está diseñada para usarse como depósito ni tener
agua por mucho tiempo.
PRECAUCIONES DE SEGURIDAD:
No use con agua contaminada, microbiológicamente peligrosa o de
procedencia incierta; en ese caso debe desinfectar la unidad antes y

Cartuchos del Filtro
TIEMPO DE VIDA DE LOS CARTUCHOS DEL FILTRO
La frequencia con que necesitará cambiar los cartuchos del filtro depende
de cuanta agua filtre en este sistema y que tantas impurezas contenga el
agua (que tanto deber funcionar el filtro). Mientras mas sólidos disueltos
existan en el agua que use (o mientras más alta sea la medida del TDS),
más tendrá que trabajar el filtro y por lo tanto menos durará. Cuando la
lectura del Medidor TDS que viene incluído indique “006”, es esencial
que ud. cambie los filtros para asegurar que el producto funcione de
manera óptima. La longevidad del filtro puede variar dependiendo de las
condiciones del agua en su localidad. Durante el Proceso de Certificación,

GUIA DE RESOLUCION DE
PROBLEMAS
Mi Botellón con Filtro ZeroWater® es
nuevo pero el medidor no lee “000”.
Primero verifique la medida directamente
en la Cámara Inferior. Si el medidor no
indica “000” es porque la Cámara Inferior
no está completamente limpia o los filtros
no están funcionando correctamente.
Trate de limpiar la Cámara Inferior y
verifique que los filtros esten instalados
correctamente.
Si cuando verifique la medida
directamente en la Cámara Inferior, el
medidor indica “000”, entonces los filtros
están funcionando bien y el problema se
debe a que el depósito del dispensador o
los grifos no están bien limpios. Liempie
el dispensador y los grifos otra vez.
El Medidor TDS no enciende.
Recuerde no debe sumergir el medidor
en el agua, de lo contrario creará un corto
circuito. Si usó el medidor de acuerdo a
las instrucciones, trate de remplazar las
baterías.
Mi filtro tiene un olor muy fuerte.
Mida el agua que ya paso a través del
filtro. Lo mas probable es que el medidor
indique mas de “006”, lo cual quiere
decir que es momento de remplazar su
filtro.
La Cámara Inferior se llena muy
lentamente.
Filtrar el agua hast llegar a la pureza
óptima toma cierto tiempo. El flujo
del agua está regulado de manera que
espere el tiempo necesario en cada
etapa del sistema de filtraje y pueda ser
limpiada completamente.
Mi dispensador está goteando por el
Borde Divisor de la Cámara Inferior.
Asegúrese que el Borde Divisor esté
colocado con el lado correcto hacia
arriba y que esté firmemente encajado
en la Cámara Inferior, para verficar que
está sellado. No sobrellene la Cámara
Superior con más agua de la que cabe en
la Cámara Inferior. La Cámara Superior
no está diseñada para usarse como
depósito ni tener agua por mucho tiempo.

ENTIENDO EL MEDIDOR
El Medidor TDS le ayuda a cuantificar lo que sus papilas gustativas y le está diciendo
sobre lo que se encuentra en el agua que está consumiendo. El mide substancias que se
encuentran en el agua y que le cambian el sabor. Mientras más alta sea la medida indicada,
mayor será la cantidad de substancias disueltas en el agua.
Para una explicación más científica, el medidor le indica el número total de sólidos
disueltos detectables en el agua. Con sólo presionar un botón, los electrodos en la punta
del medidor cuantifican la cantidad de iones en el agua y convierten esa cantidad en el
número que aparece en la pantalla. Ese número representa la cantidad total en “partes
por millón” de sólidos disueltos detectables que están presentes en el agua que probó.
El medidor se usa principalmente para indicar que es momento de cambiar el filtro al
llegar a la medida “006”. También se puede usar como un método simple para comparar
la calidad del agua al indicar el Total de Sólidos Disueltos (TDS) en “partes por millón”
solamente. El medidor no especifica cuales son las substancias presentes.en el agua.

GARANTIA
GARANTIA DEL CARTUCHO DEL FILTRO DE REEMPLAZO
Aunque los cartuchos del filtro de reemplazo tienen 30 días de garantía por defectos
de fabricación, no hay garantía de devolución de dinero. Para poner un reclamo
por un cartucho defectuoso, usted deberá hablar primero con un representante de
Servicio al Cliente, quien le ayudará a identificar y resolver cualquier posible problema.
En caso de encontrar un problema causado por un defecto de fabricación, ellos
le darán instrucciones sobre como devolver el cartucho para que sea evaluado en
nuestro laboratorio. Dependiendo de si el laboratorio determina que el cartucho está
defectuoso o no, ellos lo reemplazarán o se lo enviarán de vuelta. Por favor recuerde
que no podemos garantizar la vida del cartucho del filtro ya que existen muchas
variantes que afectan la vida de cada cartucho, incluído el clima, la planta de tratamiento
de agua en su localidad, su nivel de consumo de agua, etc. Solamente podemos darle
estimados basados en experiencia previa de otros clientes. Si la vida de un cartucho no
es muy larga, eso no necesariamente quiere decir que tenga un cartucho defectuoso.
