12 - PURINIZE® Water Purifier, 1 L
(Treats up to 200 gallons of water)
1 - 0.2-Micron Ceramic Filter
1 - Spigot
Does not include drill, drill bits, or buckets.
As the Ceramic Filter gets clogged, rinse clean after each use. If the Ceramic Filter is rinsed clean but still shows signs of a slow drip rate then you will have to do a slight surface scrub. Gently scrub the outside of the filter using the green side of a sponge. Never use soap or detergents because they may clog the filter. The Ceramic Filter should be replaced every 1,000 gallons.
Flow Rate: You should see a drop rate of 30-60 minutes per gallon of water. Because the filter system relies on gravity, the more full the top bucket is the faster the drip rate will be. You may drill additional holes and install up to 3 total filters for much faster flow rates. This is not required and will only increase the flow rate of the system.
