What is the 10 Stage Water Filter?
Currently, any water that comes out of your tap could contain toxic contaminants such as chlorine and its by-products, lead, bacteria, and pesticides. Water that has not been taken care of is not safe to use or drink.
The 10 Stage Water Filter has 10 stages of filter. It has been tested to remove chloroforms, lead, certain pesticides and bacteria. Once filtered, you and your family can drink this water, give it to your pets, or use it to wash your fruits and vegetables.
How often should I replace my filter cartridge?
With a family of four, the 10 Stage Water Filter would on average last for 1 year, after approximately 1500 gallons of usage. This includes drinking, cooking, and cleaning vegetables.
If there are only 1 or 2 users, the filter would be good as long as it tastes and smells fine and could possibly last up to 18 months. However, the filter should not be used any longer than this.
There is no water coming out after I have replaced my cartridge!
Usually for the first time, it would take about 30 seconds for the water to flow through. If you have waited this long but no water is coming out, your cartridge may have been placed upside down.
The gold media, which is KDF-55, should be pointing at the sitting once your filter is sitting again on your counter. Please check again to see if the cartridge is installed properly.
If your cartridge is in upside down, your water would taste strange as well.
