Cartridge Replacement


WHY DOES THE CARBON-BLOCK FILTER HAVE TO BE REPLACED?

The tiny pores in the activated carbon of each eSpring® filter act as contaminant “traps.” Even if you do not use 1,320 gallons of water over the course of a year, large, organic molecules in standing water around the carbon block will begin to clog the pores over time. When that happens, smaller contaminants could slip over the blocked pores instead of being trapped inside them. So when you hear the alert tone, change the filter/cartridge. This ensures your eSpring unit will keep providing you with the high water quality it has been tested and certified to deliver.

REPLACING THE FILTER/CARTRIDGE

REPLACING THE FILTER/CARTRIDGE
To maintain your water quality, the filter/cartridge of your eSpring® Water Purifier must be replaced once a year or every 1,320 gallons, whichever comes first. If your water contains large amounts of particulates, you may need to change the filter/cartridge more often to maintain an acceptable flow rate. The eSpring unit features a Replace Cartridge indicator that looks like a gas gauge to show the remaining filter/cartridge life.






EARLY WARNING: ORDER A NEW FILTER/CARTRIDGE
When 90% of the rated life of the filter/cartridge is remaining (based on time or the amount of water that has flowed through the system), the last bar on the Replace Cartridge gauge will flash, and the beeper will go off once when water flow begins. This reminds you to order a new filter/cartridge.








SECOND WARNING: REPLACE THE FILTER/CARTRIDGE
At 100% of the rated life of the filter/cartridge, the cup icon will turn from blue to red, the cartridge icon will flash, the lights on the Replace Cartridge gauge will disappear, and the beeper will go off every two seconds. This tells you it’s time to replace the filter/cartridge. The sophisticated monitoring system makes sure you will never change the filter/cartridge prematurely or wait too long and negatively affect your water quality.

REPLACING THE FILTER/CARTRIDGE
To maintain your water quality, the filter/cartridge of your eSpring® Carbon Water Treatment System must be replaced once a year or every 1,320 gallons, whichever comes first. If your water contains large amounts of particulates, you may need to change the filter/cartridge more often to maintain an acceptable flow rate. The eSpring unit features a Filter Life indicator – three curved bars and a circle – to show the remaining filter/cartridge life.








EARLY WARNING: ORDER A NEW FILTER/CARTRIDGE
When 90% of the rated life of the filter/cartridge is remaining (based on time or the amount of water that has flowed through the system), the circle in the Filter Life indicator will flash yellow, and the unit will beep once when water flow begins. This reminds you to order a new filter/cartridge.








SECOND WARNING: REPLACE THE FILTER/CARTRIDGE
At 100% of the rated life of the filter/cartridge, the Water Flow icon will go from flashing green (the normal display) to flashing red, the Filter Life indicator circle will flash red, and the beeper will go off continuously once water flow begins. This tells you it’s time to replace the filter/cartridge. The sophisticated monitoring system makes sure you will never change the filter/cartridge prematurely or wait too long and negatively affect your water quality.
