Have you ever paused before taking a gulp, pondering the quality of your water? Your trusty water purifier machine gives you that peace of mind.
But here's the catch: A little TLC is required to keep it performing at its best. Stick around as we delve into the essentials of keeping these machines in tip-top shape and offer a brief dive into the vast ocean of water purification.
Water Purifier Machine Maintenance and Care Tips: Step-by-Step Guide
Read the Manual First:
Before anything else, familiarise yourself with the user manual that comes with your water purifier. It contains specific maintenance guidelines for your machine's model.
At least once a month, visually inspect your water purifier for any external damages, leaks, or unusual sounds.
Change Filters Regularly:
Over time, filters become clogged with impurities. Check your manual for recommendations, but as a general rule, change sediment filters every 6-9 months and RO/UV filters annually.
Clean the Exterior:
Wipe down the machine's exterior with a damp cloth weekly to prevent dust accumulation.
Sanitise the Storage Tank:
Empty and clean the storage tank using a mild disinfectant every 2-3 months. Rinse thoroughly before refilling.
Check for Pipe and Hose Integrity:
Ensure there are no kinks, blockages, or wear and tear. Replace any part that seems compromised.
Protect from Direct Sunlight and Heat:
Keep the water purifier in a cool, shaded place to prevent any potential damage from overheating or UV rays.
Ensure Proper Water Pressure:
Too much or too little water pressure can damage the water purifier. Use a pressure gauge and keep it within the recommended range per the manual.
Regular Professional Check-Up:
At least once a year, have a professional service technician inspect and service your water purifier. They can identify issues you might miss.
Avoid DIY Repairs:
If there's a malfunction, avoid trying to fix complex issues alone. Reach out to the manufacturer's customer service or a trained technician.
Keep a Replacement Log:
Jot down dates when you replace parts or filters. This helps in keeping track and ensuring timely replacements.
Occasionally, manufacturers may release updates or best practices. Stay in touch with their official communications to be in the know.

DIY Approach: A Go-To Manual for Cleaning Your Water Purifier Machine
Safety First: Ensure the purifier is unplugged from the power source before starting.
External Cleaning: With the microfiber cloth, gently wipe down the water purifier machine to remove dust and stains.
Change Filters: Depending on usage and water quality, replace filters regularly. Typically, carbon filters should be replaced every 6-9 months, while RO membranes last about 2-3 years. Consult the cleaner's manual for specifics.
Descaling the System: Mix the descaling solution per the product's instructions.
Run this solution through the system to remove mineral build-up. This is especially crucial for areas with hard water.
UV Chamber Sanitisation: Use the UV-C sterilisation pen to clean the chamber thoroughly for UV purifiers.
Clean the Storage Tank: Empty the tank.
Mix a white vinegar or citric acid solution with water (typically a 1:10 ratio). Fill the tank with this solution. Let it sit for about 20-30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
O-Ring Maintenance: Check the sealing rings. If they appear dry, apply a small amount of the O-ring lubricant.
Reassemble & Test: Once everything is cleaned, reassemble any parts you may have disassembled. Plug in the cleaner, run water through the system, and use the Water Safe Test Kits to ensure purity.
Document Maintenance: Note the date and the maintenance tasks you performed. This helps track the lifespan of filters and other parts.
Seek Guidance: If you need clarification on any step, refer to the instructional DVD or the online tutorial for visual aids.
Basic Water Purifier Installation Guide:
Safety First: Make sure the main water supply is turned off.
Ensure you have all necessary tools: adjustable wrench, Teflon tape, screwdriver, drill (if required), and the installation kit with your purifier. Read the manufacturer's manual for any specific instructions.
Choose the Location: Decide where you want to install the water purifier. For countertop models, this will be near the sink. You'll need space in the cabinet below the sink for under-the-sink models.
Attach the Diverter Valve (for countertop models): Remove the faucet's aerator (the end piece of the tap). Screw in the diverter valve provided with your purifier. Use Teflon tape to ensure a watertight connection.
Install the Water Purifier Unit: If it's an under-the-sink model, mount the purifier using screws or brackets in the chosen location. Make sure it's accessible for filter changes. Countertop models will typically sit on the counter, so just ensure it's stable.
Connect the Water Lines: Attach the input water line to the main water supply. Use Teflon tape to prevent leaks. For purifiers with a separate faucet, drill a hole in the sink (if one isn't already there) to attach the new faucet. Connect this faucet to the purifier's output line.
Install the Drain Line (for RO systems): Reverse osmosis systems require a drain for wastewater. Attach the drain line to your sink's drain pipe using a saddle clamp or the provided connector.
Insert the Filters: Open the purifier casing and insert filters per the manufacturer's instructions. Typically, this involves screwing or snapping them into place.
Turn On the Water Supply: Slowly turn the main water supply on and check for leaks. Turn off the water and ensure all connections are tight if you find any.
Flush the System: Let the water run through the purifier and discard the first 2-3 gallons (as recommended in the manual). This clears out any impurities or residues from the manufacturing process.
Test the Purified Water: Once installed, use the water purifier to fill a glass and check the taste. If everything seems right, your installation is complete.
The vitality of clean water cannot be stressed enough. It's more than just hydration; it's about ensuring the health and well-being of every sip. And the secret to achieving this? Timely and routine maintenance of your water purifier. When maintained, these machines deliver impeccable water quality and stand the test of time, giving you more bang for your buck.
