The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) emphasizes the importance of periodically maintaining the filter in your water treatment system, whether this involves replacing or washing the filter. Periodic maintenance on your Kinetico pre-filter will save you time and money, as failing to do so can damage your system over time, leading to costly repairs.
If the water pressure in your residence has decreased, it is likely a sign that your Kinetico pre-filter is becoming clogged with sediments and needs to be washed.
The Kinetico pre-filter is washable, so there is no need for you to buy a new one every few months. We recommend that you wash your filter every 3-6 months.
