the hose into the "quick connect" fitting at the bottom of

It will take a few seconds before water will flow through
the filter and out the spout. This will flush away any carbon
fines. To insure all the air trapped in the unit is released

During the first few days, you may notice:
water dripping out from the spout
filtered water looks milky/ cloudy, particularly in
the mornings. This is a result of the filter not completely
filled up with water and (1) air bubbles in the filter
push the water out, and (2) air bubbles accumulated
near the spout. When the faucet is turned on, air bubbles
come out with the filtered water and make the water
look milky/ cloudy. The water is completely safe for
drinking. However, if you still feel uncomfortable,
please let the water run for 10-15 seconds before use.
The cloudiness in the water will disappear after the
first few days.
Black chips/ powder may be found in your filtered water.
These are loose granular activated carbon of food grade
and are not harmful to health. It occurs (1) when a new
filter is not flushed long enough (normally 5 minutes or
more), or (2) when the flow rate is too fast (should be
less than 1 gallon/minute). Should the filter continue to
leak out black chips, please contact Arvani or their agent
for inspection. A new filter will be replaced if any filter
is found to be defective under manufacturer's warranty.
An activated carbon cartridge (Taste/Odor) may contain a
small amount of carbon fines (very black powder) and a new
cartridge, after installation, should be flushed with sufficient
water to remove the fines before using the water.
A reduction in water flow or a change in the color or taste
of the water, should be considered an indication that the
filter is near the end of its useful life.
This model does not require much maintenance (Maintenance Free System).
The actual length of time the main filter will effectively remove
chlorine and other contaminants will mostly depend on the original
quality of the source water, pH and amount of water used. However,
the sediment cartridge in the pre-filter has to be changed when its
colour changes from snow white to yellowish brown, or when the flow
HINTS: If the lever does not automatically bounce back
after you turn the tap off, try using a few drops of cooking
oil to lubricate the lever. This process should be carried
out as soon as the problem appears.
