Why is there a need for maintenance?
It is an important process to ensure the longevity of the filter and the effective flow rate of the system. It is highly recommended for you to follow simple steps here!
The 3 different maintenance processes are as follows:
Before we start, check to ensure you have the following items prepared.
Forward flushing is really easy. It is essentially pumping clean water into the system to clean the membranes and dislodging the dirt from it. We recommend that you perform forward flushing daily to prevent the build up of silt particles. This will maintain the system’s flow rate and enhance the filter’s life span. Here’s how you do it.
There you have it, now you are done with Forward Flushing.
Chemical Washing is essentially pumping clean water mixed with bleach through the system. This process removes resilient organic contaminants in the system, thus enhancing the filter’s life span and ensure the system will operate with its optimum flow rate. We recommend that you do chemical washing once every 3 months. Here’s how you do it.
Note: Household bleach are produced in different concentrations in different parts of the world. It is strongly recommended that you evaluate the concentration of the Bleach product prior to use.
Cleaning the pre-filter sponge
The pre-filter sponge is used to filter out larger particles, such as small rocks, twigs and sand particles. It acts as the first layer of filtration from the water source. The cleaning process is simple and we recommend that the cleaning is carried out once a week. Here’s how you do it.
There you have it!
