The flow rate of the ceramic filter can be easily renewed by simply brushing its outer surface with a soft toothbrush or soft Scotch-Brite¨ pad under running water. As the top layer of ceramic and the contaminants are brushed off and flushed away, a new layer becomes available. This process can be repeated over and over before the ceramic material is exhausted.
  • Carefully remove the ceramic filter from the upper chamber.

  • Using a soft toothbrush or soft scouring pad (3M Scotch-Brite¨ or similar), scrub the filter under running water or in a bowl of water. Always brush away from threaded mount, taking care not to contaminate the mount. Never use soap or detergents.

  • Replace the filter in the upper chamber. Be sure that sealing washer is properly seated by turning nut until tight.


Note: Rubber gloves are suggested.
