Has the purification filter been replaced?





Foreign materials may be observed when the product has been installed

for the first time, water has not run sufficiently after filter replacement,

filter needs to be replaced, or dispenser has not been used for a long time. 


How to fix


   - Replace filter

       1st precarbon filter : 6 months, 
UF membrane filter : 12 months
3rd post carbon filter : 6 months 

    - After filter replacement, let water run for 1.5 liters before use.

       To remove residual active carbon,

       press the dispenser button to let water run for three minutes.
       (Three minutes for purified water, three minutes for cold water.

       Active carbon is harmless to human body)


    1. If foreign materials are found even though

        filters have been replaced regularly, contact the service center.
