• Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality
without adequate disinfection before and after the system. Systems certified
for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable
cysts. EPA Establishment Number 10350-MN-005.
For conditions of use, health claims certified by the California Department of Public
Health, and replacements, see performance data sheet. California Department
of Public Health Certification #05-1698. The contaminants or other substances

NOTICE
To reduce the risk associated with property damage due to water leakage:
• Read and follow use instructions before installation and use of this system.
• Installation and use MUST comply with all state and local plumbing codes.
• Do not install if water pressure exceeds 120 psi (8.2 bar). If your water pressure
exceeds 80 psi, you must install a pressure-limiting valve. Contact a plumbing
professional if you are uncertain how to check your water pressure.
• Do not install where water hammer conditions may occur. If water hammer
conditions exist you must install a water hammer arrester. Contact a plumbing
professional if you are uncertain how to check for this condition.
• Do not install on hot water supply lines. The maximum operating water
temperature of this filter system is 100º F (38º C).
• Protect filter from freezing. Drain filter when temperatures drop
below 33ºF (0.6ºC).
• The disposable filter cartridge must be replaced every 6 months at the
rated capacity, or sooner if a noticeable reduction in flow rate occurs.
