Non-replacement of water purification device filters timely, not only will interrupt water purification process and endanger quality of purified water, but it also may damage device elements and cause high expenses.
As it was mentioned in description and also manual of device, pretreatment filters which include two fibrous filters and one carbon filter should be replaced after six months. The reason is that suspended particles such as ooze, sand and granule, particles resulting from pipes corrosion which are removed from water by fibrous filter are accumulated around these filters and not only reduces incoming water volume, but also they will create subsidiary pollutions and become a good medium for growing pathogenic microorganisms.
Also, carbon filters which are responsible to remove chemical gases, chlorine and improve unpleasant color and flavor of water are satiated after 6 months and will not be able to adsorb these kinds of impurities. Then, chemical gases and chlorine dissolved in water will be passed from these filters and not only will decrease quality of produced water, but also damage RO membrane overtime and damage it. This is while it can be prevented from RO membrane to be damaged by replacing filters timely and reduce maintenance expenses of device remarkably.
Satiation of active carbon filters will have accumulation of organic materials in these filters. The organic materials absorbed by these filters, when the filters are not able to absorb chlorine,will provide a good medium for feeding and growing bacteria, parasites and other microorganisms and cause serious problems in health and hygiene.
It is certain that replacing carbon and fibrous filters timely secures continuous health and sanitation of your drinking water as well as reducing maintenance expenses of device significantly.
