Installation and use MUST comply with all state and local plumbing codes. The disposable filter cartridge should be replaced every six months, at the rated capacity or sooner if a noticeable reduction in flow rate occurs. 2. Fill the replacement cartridge with water from the tap to allow for better flow from the dispenser immediately after installation. 3. Line up the threads on the filter with corresponding threads on the holder. Place the top of the new cartridge up inside the holder. Do not push it up into the holder. 4.
