STAGE 1 – SEDIMENT FILTER
Recommended change 3-6 months or 3,500 gallons total or 900 gallons of filtered water. The first stage of your RO unit is a five micron sediment filter that traps sediment and other particulate matter like dirt, silt and rust which will affect the taste and appearance of your water
STAGE 2 – CARBON BLOCK FILTER
Recommended change 3-6 months or 3,500 gallons total or 900 gallons of filtered water (at 1 ppm chlorine). The second stage of your RO unit is a carbon block filter. The activated carbon in the filter reduces chlorine and conditions the water prior to the RO membrane
STAGE 3 – RO MEMBRANE
Recommended change 12-24 months
The RO membrane reduces impurities known as total dissolved solids (TDS) from the water down to 1/10,000 of a micron, reducing arsenic, lead, parasitic cysts, copper and more because the process of filtering the high-quality water takes time, it is common to use a storage tank to collect filtered water, making it available on demand.
STAGE 4 – COLOR CHANGING RESIN (DEIONIZATION)
Replace filter when resin changes color. After the water is filtered by the membrane, there is usually a small amount of total dissolved
solids (TDS) left in the water. In certain non-drinking water applications, it is important to remove the remaining TDS from the water. This is accomplished by filtering the water through a resin that is charged with cation and anion resins (H+ and OH-). As the resin absorbs the TDS, it will change color. When all resin has changed color, it is time to replace the DI filter.
