Multi-Stage Filter Cartridge 

  Multi-Stage Filter Cartridge

  1. With the zazen Filter Cartridge, be sure to give it a good rinse for 2- 3 minutes through cold running water until the water drips clear from the bottom of the filter. 
  2. Gently knock the filter on its side on a couple of times on a soft towel on the kitchen bench; this will ensure there are no air bubbles in it which will stop the water flowing through it.
  3. Rinse again with cold running water until the water drips clear from the bottom of the filter. You will use approx. 2 – 2.5 litres of water during this process of preparation and rinsing. 
  4. Simply remove the existing filter cartridge from your water system and screw the new one into your system cartridge connector and place back into your system. Dispose of old filter cartridge carefully. Do not recycle.

  Ceramic Filter

  1. With the zazen Ceramic Filter, gently wipe the new filter with a soft cloth under cold water.
  2. Remove your old Ceramic Filter and place in your recycle bin 
  3. Gently place the new Ceramic Filter into the top tank. Put washer and screw on the underside of top tank and tighten.

It’s best to clean your Ceramic Filter on a weekly basis, or as required depending on your water quality.  Just very gently rub it clean with a soft cloth under cold running water to remove any orange/black/slimy residue that may have built up. You can use lemon juice or vinegar if you wish to whiten it – but NO detergents please.
