Using the Water Filtration System and About the Filter Cartridge
The countertop faucet dispenses filtered drinking water when opened.
It has a hand-operated, spring-loaded closed lever to prevent waste. You can
keep the faucet open by pushing upward on the lever to lock it against the
Filter Cartridge Life – Several variables determine how long the cartridges
will last in your Water Filtration system. These include:
How much water you use.
How much sediment, taste and/or odor, lead or other unwanted substance
is in the water.
No matter which Water Filtration system you have, you should replace the
cartridges every six months, when indicated by the electronic indicator light
on the base. In extremely poor water supplies, you may notice the return of
the unwanted substance in your water before the six months are up. In this
case the cartridges should be replaced immediately. If the system is also for
lead or chemical contaminant removal, it is MORE IMPORTANT to replace the
cartridges at least every six months.
NOTE: If the water supply contains high amounts of sediments, the carbon
filters may plug prematurely, reducing filtered water flow to the system faucet.
Cartridge replacement is needed to restore flow.
Electronic Indicator Light (GXSV10C only) – The electronic indicator light on the
base of the faucet is a six-month timer that shows you when to replace the
filter cartridges. When the battery pack is first installed, the indicator light will
light briefly to show that the electronics are operating. If this does not happen,
the batteries may be installed backwards or the lead wires are not connected.
After about six months, the indicator light begins to flash. It is time to replace
the filter cartridges. When replacing the filter cartridges, also replace the
batteries in the battery pack. Two AA batteries are required.
