Once prepared for use in accordance with the owners’ manual, the filter jug purifies water poured into the funnel by running it through the filter under the force of gravity. The filter cartridge irreversibly traps contaminants or excessive minerals in water, combining various filtration methods.
Replace the filter timely. In case your water has a high level of sediment or other contaminates, the filter may require earlier replacement.
