Filter Replacement & Reverse Osmosis Disinfection
Filter replacement and reverse osmosis disinfection are two important methods of water treatment. Filter replacement helps to remove suspended solids, bacteria, and other contaminants from water, while reverse osmosis disinfection helps to further purify the water, removing dissolved salts, heavy metals, and other chemicals. Both techniques are essential for ensuring safe, clean drinking water. Learn more about filter replacement and reverse osmosis disinfection here.
The video instruction series is complemented by instructions to help you independently manage the replacement of filter cartridges in a reverse osmosis system and to maintain its quality and long warranty, we show you how to thoroughly and effectively disinfect an installed reverse osmosis system. Having potable water is rare. Enjoying the benefit of treated and truly clean water is a comfort we are happy to give you, and you can even work towards it on your own. Enjoy!
Reverse osmosis Presented by multi-stage filtration, wherein each filter that is part of the reverse osmosis system has a specific lifetime and its efficiency decreases depending on the water quality. Therefore, if you want to have truly clean and treated water all year round, all filters must be checked and changed regularly.
You are currently watching our second video, which is divided into two parts. The first part of the video covers disinfecting a reverse osmosis system using a disinfection kit that is commonly used by our service technicians. The second part of the video focuses on the actual replacement of the filter cartridges. The disinfection and replacement of the filter cartridges is shown in 7-stage reverse osmosis Aquafilter, wherein this procedure is widely applicable to most reverse osmoses. We wish you a pleasant viewing!
What do you need?
Before starting a reverse osmosis service, you need to prepare a disinfection kit, all replacement filter cartridges, a new osmotic membrane and inline filters. Before starting, we recommend that you check which spare cartridges you will need and if you are unsure, contact us contact. In addition, other tools such as: a French wrench, Teflon tape and a Jonhn Guest hose clamp are required.
In the video you we show the whole procedure, which includes 9 steps:
- Using a safety fuse
- Preparation for disinfection of a reverse osmosis system
- Installing a disinfection pad in front of the system
- Flushing after disinfection
- Preparation for changing filter cartridges
- Replacing the filter cartridges on the first three filter stages
- Replacement of the ostmotic membrane
- Replacement of inline filters – carbon postfilter, mineralizer, energizer
- Flushing of water tank
Each part is shown and explained in detail. At the end of the video we will guide you through the final check, when all seals must be checked to ensure there are no leaks. You can also use a TDS meter to check the water quality before and after replacement to determine the amount of soluble substances in the water.
You often ask: How long do filter cartridges last?
The maximum lifespan of a mechanical filter cartridge, carbon filter cartridges and mineralization filter is approximately 10 months. While the lifetime of the osmotic membrane and energizer is much longer, approximately 2, maximum 3 years. However, it should always be taken into account that the lifetime of the individual filters depends mainly on the quality of the input water and also on the amount of water filtered. For this reason, the lifetime of the filter cartridges can be even shorter. It is recommended to check the condition of the filter cartridges continuously.
Is easier maintenance available?
Of course. We are aware that the installation and maintenance of Aquafilter’s reverse osmosis system is a rather more complicated process. In case you want to install the reverse osmosis on your own, but you don’t want the process to be too complicated, in that case we definitely recommend the Aquaphor Morion reverse osmosis system, which you install in minutes by connecting the tubing. When replacing the cartridges, simply press the safety button and without a drop of water you pull out the old cartridge and replace it with a new one.
In case of any questions and any confusion, do not hesitate to use our customer service and ask our expert technologist for advice. You can find more videos on our YouTube channel and if you are interested, you can subscribe to be the first to know about new products.
How often should I replace the filter in my reverse osmosis system?
It depends on the type of filter, but generally the filters should be replaced every 6 to 12 months. The membrane should be replaced every 2 to 3 years. It is important to check the manufacturer’s instructions for more specific information.
Does reverse osmosis disinfect water?
No, reverse osmosis does not disinfect water. It filters out sediment, chemicals, and other contaminants, but does not remove bacteria or viruses. You may need to use a separate disinfection system such as ultraviolet light or chlorine to make the water safe to drink. Learn more about reverse osmosis and ultraviolet light.
Advantages of Filter Replacement and Reverse Osmosis Disinfection
- Removes contaminants from water, including heavy metals, fluoride, bacteria, and viruses
- Reduces chlorine levels and unpleasant odors
- Improves taste, clarity, and color of water
- Reduces risks associated with drinking contaminated water
- Provides healthy, clean drinking water
- Cost-effective and can be used in both commercial and residential applications
