How to Clean and Maintain Your AquaTru Purifier - AquaTru

Regular maintenance is essential to ensure your water purification system consistently delivers clean and fresh drinking water. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the steps to clean and descale your AquaTru unit, helping you extend its lifespan and maintain optimal performance.

1. Replace Filters On Time

Regular filter replacement is essential for keeping your AquaTru unit in optimal condition. Keep an eye on your unit’s filter indicator light; when it illuminates, it’s a clear signal that it’s time to replace your filters. This simple step ensures your water is always purified to the highest standards. Skipping filter replacements can lead to a decrease in water quality and the overall efficiency of the system.

2. Maintain Optimal Flow Rate

If you notice that the flow rate of your AquaTru unit exceeds 20 minutes, it might be an indication that it requires descaling. This is particularly important if you live in an area with hard water, which contains higher levels of minerals. Over time, these minerals can accumulate and hinder the flow of water through the system. Regular descaling can help maintain an efficient flow rate and prevent potential clogs.

3. Regularly Clean Tanks and Pitchers

To prevent the build-up of algae and mineral deposits, it’s essential to routinely clean both the tap water and purified water tanks and pitchers. A simple wash with soap and water can go a long way in preserving your AquaTru’s performance. Regular cleaning not only ensures that your water stays fresh and pure but also prolongs the life of the system.

4. Discard Waste Water Properly

After each full tank of water is filtered, it’s important to discard the small amount of wastewater that’s produced. If you consistently top off the water in the tap tank without emptying the wastewater, it could lead to the accumulation of scale and mineral deposits. Properly disposing of the waste water prevents the build-up of impurities and maintains the system’s efficiency.

Additional Tips for AquaTru Maintenance

  • Use Distilled or Purified Water for Descaling: When descaling your AquaTru unit, we recommend using distilled or purified water. Distilled or purified water has a lower mineral content, reducing the risk of new scale formation during the descaling process.
  • Follow User Manual: Always refer to your AquaTru’s user manual for specific cleaning and maintenance instructions. The manufacturer’s recommendations are tailored to your unit’s design and ensure the best results.
  • Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect your unit for any signs of wear, leaks, or damage. Addressing issues promptly can prevent more significant problems down the line.
  • Professional Servicing: If you encounter any issues that you’re unsure how to handle, it’s best to contact us directly. Attempting to fix complex problems without the necessary expertise could lead to further damage.

By following these simple yet effective maintenance tips, you can enjoy the benefits of pure, clean water from your AquaTru unit for years to come. Regular cleaning, proper filter replacement and timely descaling ensure that your water purification system continues to pay off in the form of high-quality drinking water for you and your family.

Remember, a little maintenance today can save you from bigger headaches tomorrow. So, keep your AquaTru unit in tip-top shape and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re drinking the best water possible.
