How to Change Zero Water Filter
If you own a Zero Water pitcher or dispenser, occasionally changing its filter is crucial to ensure the best water quality. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to change the Zero Water filter:
Step 1: Gather the Necessary Supplies
Before you begin, make sure you have the following items:
- Zero Water filter replacement
- Empty container to collect the filtered water
Step 2: Remove the Old Filter
Locate the filter compartment in your Zero Water pitcher or dispenser. Depending on the model, you may find the filter on the top or bottom.
Twist the filter counterclockwise to detach it from the unit. Be sure to hold it upright to prevent any remaining water from spilling.
Step 3: Prepare the New Filter
Unpack the new Zero Water filter from its packaging. Remove any protective plastic covering and rinse the filter under cold water for 10-15 seconds. This helps to remove any loose carbon dust and activate the filtering process.
Step 4: Install the New Filter
Insert the new filter into the unit by twisting it clockwise. Ensure it fits securely and is properly aligned. Some models may have an arrow indicator to guide correct placement.
Step 5: Prime the New Filter
To eliminate air pockets and properly prime the new filter, fill the upper compartment of your Zero Water pitcher or dispenser with cold tap water. Allow the water to filter through the system and empty into a separate container. Repeat this process two times.
Step 6: Ready to Use!
Your Zero Water filter is now successfully replaced! Fill your pitcher or dispenser with tap water and enjoy clean, filtered water free from impurities.
Remember to regularly monitor the filter’s lifespan to maintain the best water quality. The average filter life is about 3-6 months, depending on your water usage and quality.
By following these simple steps, you can easily change the Zero Water filter and keep enjoying fresh, filtered water at home. Stay hydrated and healthy!
