How To Use Aqua Cera Water Purifiers


Assembly Instructions
1) Remove the filter elements and parts from their protective packaging, checking each item against the diagram. Wash all parts in hot, soapy water and dry. Keep everything clean as you assemble (wash hands).

2) Fit the knob (1) onto the lid (2) by inserting the screw (3) up through the hole in the lid and screwing on the knob. Hand tighten only. (only on the SS4)

3) Place the large sealing washer (10) over the threaded part of the element (5).

4) Place the element (5) into the hole in the base of the upper chamber (4). Secure element in the chamber base by screwing on the wing nut (11) onto the threaded mount.

5) Repeat #3 & #4 until all elements have been installed.

6) Place one small washer (8) onto the threaded part of the outlet spigot (7). Insert thread of spigot (7) through hole in the side of the lower chamber (6). Place the second small washer (8) over the thread within the chamber and secure in place with the nut (9). Tighten securely by hand only.

7) Put the upper chamber (4) onto the lower chamber (6) and place lid (2) in position.

8) (only on the LP5) Place assembled unit on top of the base (included).
It's recommended that you use double-stick or an adhesive to hold the base unit securely onto the lower chamber so it doesn't accidently get knocked off.

Operation
Ensure that the spigot (7) is in the "OFF" position.

CONDITION FILTERS: Wash the ceramic dust from the outer surfaces of the filter elements with running, cold, water.

Fill upper chamber (4) fully with room temperature or warm water and cover with lid (2).

Allow all water to gravity filter into lower chamber. Open the spigot to allow all water to run to waste.

Do this 4 or 5 times to completly clean the
filters of carbon "fines" and ceramic powder.

After completly cleaning the filters, your water purifier is ready to use.

 

 

 

Note: If the filters are left to stand for more than
3 days, then it is recommended that water be run
to waste for 1 minute before using. When installing
filter elements for the first time or replacing a used
element with a new one, it is important to condition
the new filters using the above procedure.


CERAMIC FILTER CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

The flow rate of the ceramic filter can be easily renewed by simply brushing its outer surface with a soft toothbrush or soft Scotch-Brite® pad under running water. As the top layer of ceramic and the contaminants are brushed off and flushed away, a new layer becomes available. This process can be repeated over and over before the ceramic material is exhausted.
