To ensure proper filter function, you should clean the filter unit every 6 months.
Without removing the filter unit from the container, place the complete Ecofiltro in a clean area.
With clean, freshly washed hands, place a clean cloth on the table and place the filter unit on it. Never touch the base of the filter, take it only by the edges. Using a new sponge that will be used exclusively to clean the filter, wipe down the outside first, removing any dirt. Then wash the filter unit using clean water. Rinse the sponge with water and clean the inside of the filter in the same way. Remember that the filter must be washed only with water. DO NOT use soap or bleach. Use ONLY a new sponge and water.
Place two clean cloths on the table and place the inverted filter on the cloths. Cover the clean filter with another cloth to prevent dust or insects from falling on it.
Wash the external parts of the filter (the external container, the lid and the faucet) with soap and water.
Change the filter unit EVERY TWO YEARS.
