By reducing colour, odour and particles in your rainwater immediately before use, they improve the quality of rainwater
where it is used for drinking water and protect internal appliances, toilets and more from sediment damage and tannin stains.
The Whole House Self-Cleaning Two and Three-Stage Filtration Systems have been designed and constructed with an innovative self-cleaning pre-filter cartridge cleaning system that washes in counter-current to remove more substances deposited on the cartridge surface. The self-cleaning filter has a nominal filtration of 90 micron with a stainless steel net.
The described operating modes and cleaning in counter-current requires a minimum 50kPa (7.25psi/0.5bar) supply pressure.
The Whole House Self-Cleaning Two or Three Stage Filtration Systems feature a drain funnel, which is a device designed to protect potable water in water installations against pollution, to prevent pollution by backflow.
The Whole House Self-Cleaning Two Stage Filtration System System offers heavy duty filtration and is equipped to handle full flow rates and high water volumes. The filter’s cartridges remove fine sediments and this helps to protect your appliances and gives you fit-for-purpose water meaning the Sediment Filtration System Provides a Safety Net to water odours and discolouration.
CAUTION: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or with water of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts. If not properly maintained, the use of this system may increase the bacterial content of the water unless supplementary treatment is provided.
WARNING: Water pressure above 500 kPa may damage connected products including water filters and will void the product warranty.
WARNING: Ensure appropriate backflow prevention has been installed to comply with local and state government guidelines.
Connecting the filter discharge to drain
WARNING: Make sure that there are no water leaks from the product, ensure you control the tightening between the housing head and the housing bowl. Continue checking that the tightening is good and there is no water leakage for 48 hours following the Installation and start-up. In case of leakage, open the housing, remove the o-ring from the bowl, place a new o-ring and apply lubricant, then re-tighten the bowl to head and repeat the leakage check as above.
WARNING: For correct operation of this appliance, it is essential to observe the manufacturer’s instruction.
Thanks to the self-cleaning pre-filter, the Whole House Self-Cleaning Two and Three Stage Filtration Systems can provide long-last improved performance if maintenance is correctly and regularly performed following the instructions indicated in Routine Maintenance.
STAGE 1 – Self-Cleaning pre-filter
Clean the filter cartridge in counter-current by opening the drain valve for 15/20 seconds. Washing the counter-current is performed as indicated in the Technical Specifications. If the cartridge is not perfectly clean after washing, repeat the operation with the same procedure one or more times until the desired cleanliness is reached. If acceptable cleanliness is not achieved for good filter operations, follow the Corrective Maintenance procedure described below.
STAGE 2 – Post-filter (Heavy Sediment; Whole House Self-Cleaning Three-Stage model only)
Replace the post-filter cartridge after 3-6 months or when a drop in downstream water pressure is observed.
STAGE 3 – Carbon filters (Multi-Action)
Replace the Multi-Action Filter cartridge at least every 3-6 months or if odours, colours or bad taste are noticed in the water or when a drop in downstream water pressure is observed.
Over time, routine cartridge cleaning may become difficult due to build-up on the cartridge net. In this case, cleaning is required as follows:
Heavy-duty Sediment and Multi-Action Filter Cartridge Replacement
In the event of prolonged filter disuse, disconnect the device from the mains and remove cartridges, storing them in a cool and dry place until next use.
