Set Up & Maintenance

Is It Essential To Prime The Carbon Cartridges?

Priming the Carbon Cartridges is the first step to ensuring your cartridges are completely free of any residuals from the manufacturing process. The residuals are completely normal and safe but can lead to cloudy water if the cartridges are not correctly primed.

We recommend priming your Carbon Cartridges for at least three minutes. If not primed sufficiently, the first four rounds of filtered water may have cloudy white particles that can be safely discarded.

NB: The recommended number of priming rounds depends on the type of cart you have. 

Why Is My Water Cloudy?

Don’t worry, cloudy water after initial installation is normal and completely harmless. It’s simply safe residual dust from the manufacturing process. It can occur if the cartridges are not correctly primed - and we recommend priming cartridges fully (see above).

If it is not primed, it can take about four rounds of filtered water to clear.

How Long Will My Carbon Cartridges Last?

We recommend replacing your Carbon Cartridges every 6 months .

How Long Will The POSTreat Fluoride Removal Filters Last?

The media inside our proprietary FluoRid media will last for 4000 litres and need replacing approximately 4 months. 

We also offer a subscription service for replacement media - we’ll remember when they’re due, so you don’t have to. 

How Long Will The FluoRide Media In The POSTreat Last?

My Phoenix Gravity Water Filter Has Water Dripping In Between The Upper And Lower Chambers, What Does This Mean?

This will be from over-filling the Water Filter System. Careful use can help prevent overfilling by checking how much water is in the lower chamber before filling the upper chamber.

Once you get to know your usage rates the re-filling process will become second nature!

We also sell a vision spigot which will enable you to see the water level from the outside.  

How Frequently Do I Need To Change My Cartridges?

This depends on the usage frequency and quality of your water input. As a guide, we recommend replacing them at the following milestones:

Carbon Cartridges: 6 months.

POSTreat (and FluoRid Media Refill): 4 months

We also offer a subscription service, which also works out to 5% off each order. Let us remember when you need to change your cartridge, so you don’t have to!
