Cleaning and maintenance instructions
How it works:
From technology used in medical dialysis, the 0.1 micron absolute filter uses a cluster of micro-fibrous tubes. Water is drawn through the side walls into their hollow centre and out the end of the tubes, while harmful bacteria and protozoa are trapped on the outer walls of the tubes.
