unit is designed for use with COLD WATER ONLY.
recommended flow rate for best results is 1/2 to 1 gallon per minute.
Increased flow will reduce the unit's effectiveness.
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.
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.
