Filter Cartridges
FILTER CARTRIDGE LIFE
LIFE
The filter cartridge contains activated carbon, a black powder.
When new, open the filtered water faucet and allow fine, carbon particles to purge from the cartridge.
Close the faucet when you no longer see the “fines” (carbon particulates) in the filtered water, or approximately 10
minutes. It is recommended to replace the battery and filter cartridges every six months of use. There are several
variables that determine how long a cartridge will last. These include:
1. How much water you use, and
2. How much sediment, taste and/or odor, or other unwanted substance, is in the water.
Use the following information as a guide. However, no matter which type of filter cartridge you are using, you will
know it is time to replace it when you first notice the return of the unwanted substance in your water.
Glacier Bay Advanced Defense Water Filtration System model HDGDUS4/HCGDUS5 with replacement filter element
pack HDGDUF4/HCGDUF5 conforms to NSF/ANSI 42 and 53 for the specific performance claims as verified and
substantiated by test data. The rated capacity for this system is 270 gallons (1022 liters) at a rated service flow of
0.5 gpm (gallons per minute).
FILTER CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
REPLACEMENT

Faucet Timer and Battery
FAUCET TIMER
Inside the faucet base is a battery-operated 6 month timer.
An amber LED indicator is also located in the front of the faucet base. This LED flashes continuously after 6 months
have passed. This indicates that it is time to replace the battery and filters.
CHANGING THE FAUCET BATTERY
To change the battery, complete the following steps:
1.
Loosen the screw on the right side of the faucet base.
2.
Press the battery housing upwards from the faucet base until it releases from the base.
3.
Replace the battery (CR 2032 or equivalent). Place battery into the holder with the positive (+) side
facing the back of the holder.
4.
When the battery is first replaced, the light in the base will flash six times and turn off. This indicates
the battery is fully charged. After the six flashes, the timer enters the 6 month time cycle. If it
repeatedly flashes two times, the battery is weak and needs to be replaced.
5.
Re-install the battery housing and firmly tighten the mounting screw.
