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. Rinse all parts in hot water and dry (NOT the filters themselves - they don't need cleaning). 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. Reach inside of the upper chamber, and while holding the filters plastic base (DO NOT HOLD THE CERAMIC FILTER - JUST THE BASE), screw the wingnut snug.

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.

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


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 season the filters. System will be slow at first, then speed up as filters are seasoned.

After proper seasoning, your water purifier is ready to use.




Note: If the filters are not used 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.


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.
