Water distillers are an efficient way to purify your tap water and remove impurities, bacteria, and other contaminants that may be harmful to your health. If you have invested in a CO-Z water distiller, you know the benefits of having clean and pure water at your fingertips. However, to keep your water distiller running at optimal performance, regular maintenance is essential. Here are some tips for maintaining your water distiller.
1. Clean the water distiller regularly
Cleaning your water distiller is the key to ensuring that it operates at optimal performance. The frequency of cleaning depends on how often you use the water distiller. If you use it daily, then you should clean it once a week. If you use it less frequently, then clean it after every use.
To clean the water distiller, first, unplug it and let it cool down. Then, remove the lid and pour out any remaining water. Use a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down the interior of the water distiller. You can also use a solution of white vinegar and water to clean the distiller. Simply fill the distiller with the vinegar solution and let it sit for a few hours. Then, rinse the distiller thoroughly with water and dry it with a soft cloth.
2. Replace the carbon filter regularly
Carbon filters are an important part of water distillers as they help to remove any remaining impurities and odors. Over time, carbon filters become saturated and need to be replaced. It is recommended to replace the carbon filter every 2-3 months or after every 300 gallons of water distilled.
To replace the carbon filter, first, unplug the water distiller and let it cool down. Then, remove the lid and take out the old filter. Replace it with a new one and reassemble the water distiller.
3. Descale the water distiller
Over time, minerals and other deposits may accumulate in the water distiller and affect its performance. Descaling the water distiller helps to remove these deposits and ensure optimal performance. It is recommended to descale the water distiller every 3-4 months.
To descale the water distiller, first, unplug it and let it cool down. Then, mix a solution of white vinegar and water and pour it into the water distiller. Let it sit for a few hours or overnight. Then, rinse the distiller thoroughly with water and dry it with a soft cloth.
4. Store the water distiller properly
When not in use, it is important to store the water distiller properly. Keep it in a dry and cool place, away from direct sunlight. Also, make sure to cover it to prevent dust and other particles from entering the distiller.
By following these simple maintenance tips, you can keep your CO-Z water distiller running at optimal performance and enjoy clean and pure water for years to come.
