What the Drinking Water Purifier will Do
The WHEMB40 is a water purification treatment system. This system uses a triple filter configuration to
remove undesirable elements in your water. These elements may include chlorine taste and odor, particu-
lates, lead, virus, bacteria, cysts, and many organic compounds. At the same time, the system allows the
minerals found in water to remain, for great tasting water.
The WHEMB40 utilizes patented technology to ensure a safe water supply for the user. Replace all filters
every 6 months or 350 gallons. The purifier technology is designed to stop flowing when its capability to
protect the user has been exhausted. This one-of-a-kind failsafe technology ensures that the user will not
be exposed to contaminated water.
NOTE: A performance data sheet is included listing what the system will reduce from the water supply.
See the performance data sheet for individual contaminants and microbial reduction performance.
The drinking water system fits under the kitchen or bathroom sink. However, you can install it where it is
most convenient. You need a COLD water supply pipe within a few feet (6 feet of tubing is included). You
can purchase longer lengths of tubing if needed to reach more distant points. Be sure tubing is accept-
able for use on potable water supplies.
Read all steps and guides carefully before installing and using your microbiological drinking water purifi-
er. Follow all steps exactly to correctly install. Reading this manual will also help you to get all the
benefits from the microbiological drinking water purifier.
Do not use for the treatment of water that is visually contaminated (cloudy) or has an obvious contami-
nation source, such as contamination by raw sewage.
All plumbing should be done in accordance with local codes and requirements. In Massachusetts,
plumbing code 248 CMR 3.00 and 10.00 shall be adhered to. Consult with your licensed plumber.
The microbiological drinking water purifier works on water pressures of 30 psi (minimum) to 100 psi
(maximum). If your house water pressure is over the maximum, install a pressure reducing valve in the
water supply pipe to the filter system.
Do not install the microbiological drinking water purifier outside, or in extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Temperature of the water supply to the undersink drinking water filter system must be between 40°F
and 100°F. Do not install on hot water.
