Detailed Maintenance Instructions
Full System Cleaning: Use a soft sponge and a natural cleaning solution (eg. Vinegar and water or 3% hydrogen peroxide) to wipe out both the upper and lower tanks as well as the tap.
Ceramic Pre-filter: Soak for 10 minutes in cool tap water and scrub both sides vigorously with the green side of a Scotch Brite sponge. Scrub both sides weekly. If ceramic on one side and plastic on the other use the yellow sponge side to clean plastic.
5 Stage Filter: Pour tap water through the 5 stage filter until water coming out the bottom is clear.
Mineral Stones: Boil mineral stones for 3-5 minutes every 6 months or at time of 5 stage filter replacement and let sit until dry. Place back in system. **If mineral stones are contained in a white basket DO NOT BOIL BASKET. Remove mineral stones from basket (see video) and boil the rocks separately.
