INTRODUCTION
DESCRIPTIONS AND DEFINITIONS
You have purchased one of the most technologically advanced Ultraviolet Water Treatment System available
anywhere in the world. It has been designed with you, the consumer, in mind. Dr. Mercola’s Pure & Clear products will provide you with healthy, clean drinking water for years to come.
WHAT IS ULTRAVIOLET?
Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun has long been known for
its ability to destroy microorganisms. However, it has only
been in recent years that equipment producing UV light
has been manufactured for residential use.
WARNING: NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT A LIGHTED UV
LAMP. ULTRAVIOLET RAYS CAN BE HARMFUL TO EYES.
Energy produced by the UV lamp has the ability to destroy
spectrum of ultraviolet light: viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae,
and protozoa.
When these microbes are exposed to the proper amount of
UV energy, their DNA structure is scrambled, and they are
2
unable
to reproduce. Since the cell is now sterile or dead, it
is no longer a threat.

WHAT IS ACTIVATED CARBON?
Activated carbon has been used for hundreds of years to
treat taste, odor, and color problems in water. Activated carbon has been proven to be an excellent media to produce
produce better tasting water and to remove harmful water
contaminants at a reasonable cost.
coal, or coconut shells. The raw carbon is ground up and
“activated” by heating the granules at a controlled temperature and pressure.
This process causes the carbon granules to expand and
create active sites where pollutants can be collected by
adsorption. These new sites dramatically increase the total
surface area and capacity of each granule.

Dr. Mercola’s Pure & Clear UV Well Water Filter
Dr. Mercola recommends that all UV systems include
pre-filters to process the water before it reaches the
UV lamp. This will ensure that maximum UV
exposure is achieved.
Dr. Mercola’s Pure & Clear UV Well Water Filter is
designed for indoor use only.
Dr. Mercola’s Pure & Clear UV Well Water Filter is
designed to provide complete water treatment in
a compact, easy-to-use package. Please follow the
directions in this guide exactly when installing your
UV Well Water Filter system to ensure that it operates
correctly.
The UV lamp requires a start-up period of one to two
minutes in order to achieve full intensity. Repeated
starting of the UV lamp will shorten its life. Therefore
it is recommended that the UV lamp remain on at all
times during use.
4. Remove each sump. Remove each filter as its
sump is removed. Discard the filters. Use
sump wrench to remove stubborn sumps.
NOTE: Use sanitary rubber gloves for this procedure
to avoid contaminating cleaning solution or
filters. Wear gloves whenever cleaning
components or handling new filters.
5. Clean Quartz Sleeve carefully using vinegar
to remove hardness. Do not use abrasive
materials. Rinse sleeve thoroughly with clean
potable water. Replace any sleeve that is
damaged or will not come completely clean.
6. Remove sump “O” rings and wash with
cleaning solution. Rinse them well with clean
potable water. Inspect “O” rings for

SERVICE REQUIREMENTS AND RECOMMENDED SERVICE INTERVALS
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
It is important that any water treatment system be properly maintained to ensure consistent water
quality. The information provided on this page is of a general nature. See Cleaning, Disinfecting, and
Routine Maintenance Procedure on Page 10 for detailed information. Refer to Mounting Bracket and System
Plumbing Installation Instructions on Page 5, and System Assembly and Activation Procedures for detailed
information to install your Pure & Clear system.
CLEANING
The inside of the system and the quartz sleeve
parts) with soap and rinse them thoroughly with
clean potable water. Dry the inside of the quartz
sleeve thoroughly before re-assembling system.
NOTE: Presence of iron or general poor water
quality will require frequent inspection
and cleaning.
“O” Rings: Lubricate each “O” ring with a silicone
based “O” ring lubricant to ensure a proper seal.
NOTE: UV lamp should remain on at all times
during use because: repeated starting of
UV lamp shortens lamp life, and UV lamp
requires a warm up period of 1-2 minutes.
FILTER REPLACEMENT
Filters will normally last approximately four to six
months. Filter life will vary due to water conditions.
