You’ve finally decided to buy a water filter machine for your family’s health needs, and after researching your options, you were able to select on and buy a purifier that suits your demands, fits your budget, and you adore. But eventually, you start to worry about what can happen if your water filter suddenly stops working at its best. What could you do to stop it from spoiling and how would you know?
All first-time buyers of RO water purifiers eventually ask themselves these queries after using their goods for a while. Then, individuals must understand more about how to properly maintain their device so that the filter doesn’t clog up too frequently and the purifier lasts a sufficient amount of time.
Why is RO water purifier maintenance crucial?
Servicing and cleaning your water purifier is a primary and crucial step in guaranteeing longevity and excellent health. Your entire family will benefit from the water purifier’s accurate performance along with good productivity for several years to come. RO water purifiers are made to withstand the test of time.
To make sure RO water purifiers function effectively, it is essential to have them serviced by professional Pureit technicians. Inappropriate maintenance compromises the product’s functionality and durability. This is the reason why a water purification system requires expert assistance when cleaning all of its filters. An ideal RO water purifier can last up to 5 to 8 years with consistent care.
Here are 6 great techniques to maintain your water purifier:
- Keep exteriors clean:
Your RO purifier should have clean exteriors in addition to functional and clean internal components. Regularly wipe out the exterior of the water purifier unit with a clean, soft cloth, and check to see whether the dirty water discharge pipe has any fungus growing on it. With a damp, clean cloth, if not every day, at least once every few days, be sure to clean the tap as well as the smaller, more easily overlooked components.
- Clean/replace the filters:
To ensure that only the purest drinking water is provided for your consumption, the filter collects all the debris and contaminants that are removed from your water. Clogged filters and membranes consume electricity because they reduce the capacity of the purifier to purify the same amount of water, causing the purifier to function for longer periods.
- Sediment Filter – Must be changed in a water purifier every 4-6 months.
- Carbon filter – A carbon filter eliminates contaminants like chlorine that shorten the life and performance of the RO membrane. The carbon filter should also be changed once every 12 months.
- Based on the TDS level in your water, the RO membrane needs to be serviced every 1.5 to 2 years.
All types of water purifier need to be cleaned frequently to remain clear and perform their filtration function properly. However, Pureit RO purifiers come with Smartsense Indicators which is a Digital Advance System that will notify you 15 days before the Germ Kill Kit expiry so that you are aware of when to change your filters. If you don’t replace it within 15 days, the “Auto Shut Off” feature will automatically turn the water off to ensure you do not accidentally consume polluted water.
With the help of this technology, you change filters only when it is necessary, thus avoiding extra expense. The SF/GKK indicator on the Pureit purifiers will blink red, alerting you to the need to contact the Pureit hotline to have the appropriate GKK changed or replaced. It is important to also note that Germ Kill Kit (Filters) should not be changed on your own.
- Fix drips and leaks
Microcracks and leaks in your RO water purifier equipment can seriously interfere with the supply of high-quality water. Additionally, water that drops and collects promotes the development of funguses and, if it persists for a long enough period, could also support the breeding of mosquitoes that spread disease. Additionally, dampness promotes the spread of numerous viruses and bacteria, which can result in several ailments you don’t want. You’ll have direct monitoring over how well the machine functions in the long run if you address these problems as soon as they arise.
- Keep a check on the instruction manual
A user guide will be included with your water filter. This contains all the necessary information, including instructions on how to install it, how to maintain it, parts, purification phases, etc. It also offers a section on how to fix it if something goes wrong.
- After you install the water filter, do not move it.
Make an educated choice regarding the location of the water purifier when you purchase one. You cannot move it once you have put it up. In changing the location of your purifier, you run the risk of damaging the device or loosening the pipes. Water purifier installation is a complicated process so get it done by a professional.
- Cleaning and sanitizing
Cleaning a RO water filter once a year is arguably the simplest method of maintenance. Long-term storage of water increases the danger of microbial contamination significantly. The initial indicators of a microbial infection are a foul taste and smell. Therefore, the water storage tank must be regularly emptied and filled. Because of this, we usually advise switching off the water purifier and draining the storage tank before travelling for an extended period.
