NOTE: A special
adjustable
wrench
(42-34334)
is includ-
ed for both turning
the head valve and for remov-
ing the sump.
See instructions
for use on Page 12.
CAUTION:
Never remove the sump with water
pressure in
the filter.
1. Turn the filter valve handle to the "OFF" or "BYPASS"
position
to relieve
pressure in the filter.
It is normal
for
a small amount
of water
to come out from under the
top cap as pressure is being
relived.
2. Turn the sump to the left to remove from the head (See
Figure 14). Be careful,
as the sump is full of water.
Do
not lose the large o-ring
seal.
3. Be sure the inside of the sump is clean. Thoroughly
wash with warm,
soapy water
and rinse.
4. Remove the wrapper
from the new filter cartridge
and
insert the filter cartridge
into the sump. Some car-
tridges
fit either way, while others fit only one way.
Observe
markings
on the cartridge,
or on the wrapper.
5. Lightly
lubricate
the o-ring
seal, in the sump, with sili-
cone grease (available
at your local hardware
store).
Be sure it is fully seated in the groove.
6. Hold the sump up to the filter head, aligning
the center
hole in the cartridge
with the protrusion
on the bottom
of the head.
NOTE:
If the sump will not tighten
up to the head, you
may have the cartridge
in upside
clown or not
centered
in the sump.
Take the cartridge
out and
check for correct
orientation.
7. Being careful
not to cross-thread,
turn the sump to the
right onto the filter
head and tighten
securely.
8. If the filter
is installed
for whole house water
filtering,
partially
open a house faucet
on the outlet side of the
filter
housing.
Open
the sink cold faucet
if the filter is
an undersink
installation.
Then, turn the filter valve
handle
to the "ON"
position
(See Figure 15) and allow
the filter housing to fill with water.
9. Close the house faucet.
Then, check for leaks between
the sump and the head.
NOTE: If a leak is occurring,
turn off the water
supply
and depressurize
the filter.
Then, remove the sump
and check the o-ring
for cuts, flat spots, etc., and
sealing
surfaces
for foreign
material.
Clean the o-
ring and lubricate
with silicone grease.
Carefully
press into the groove
in the sump.

10. Taste and Odor Cartridges:
A taste and odor car-
tridge
contains
activated
carbon,
a black powder.
When
new, open a filtered
water
faucet
and allow
fine carbon
particles
to purge from the cartridge.
Close the faucet
when you no longer see the "fines"
in
the filtered
water.
