Do I need to remove the filter prior to descaling equipment?
Yes, remove filter prior to descaling and inspect for integrity if needed replace with a new filter.
Why are there black specks in the water or why does my water taste funny?
Water filters are made from the purest carbon blocks. When the filter ships it bounces around and nocks
carbon granules loose from the block. These little carbon granules are called fines. All of the quality
filters in the market place require a preliminary flushing to reduce the carbon fines Some systems may
need to be flushed more than once. This is especially true if you have scale or lime water. If you go on
vacation and do not use your filtered water for several days, flush the systems again to remove any
If I do not change my filter every 3 months, can this damage the system?
Yes, you must replace the filter every 3 months or sooner if water flow is reduced or if there is heavy
sediment/rust present. Filters left in longer will fatigue, degrading filter performance.
