Many people and Business’s find changing water filters can seem quite a daunting task
Are you currently wondering if you really need to change your water filter? The answer is most likely yes if your unit is over 6 month or more old. Changing your filter is critical to maintaining the cleanliness of your drinking water.
What happens if I don’t change the filter in my Water cooler
An unchanged filter could hold nasty toxins that can alter the taste of your water and cause damage to the Water Cooler unit, and more important your health and wellbeing.
If you think of the water cooler filter like the air filter within your car, think of how your car engine’s performance would be affected if you did not perform the proper maintenance on it at regular intervals. Changing your water cooler filter is the same.
Who is responsible for setting interval when it takes place
Manufacturer recommendations for changing the water Cooler filter are important to follow as they are made in the interest of ensuring that you are always enjoying great tasting water within safe parameters. Brands such as Winix, Crystal, Billi, Zip and Borg & Overström use filter specifically engineered for peak performance within the specified parameters of 6 monthly changes.
Can I tell when my filters is ready for changing
Although the filtered water may look, and taste clean, it may be harbouring a build-up of harmful substances. Changing the filter will cleanse your system of these contaminants and help maintain the quality of taste to help avoid future issues with contaminated water.
Who is responsible for setting the standards
As the owner of your Water cooler it is your choice on whether you change your filter, but if you decide not to change it you’ll need to be ready to deal with the consequences. Imagine coming in to work your team sit down and drink a cool glass of water, but once you take a sip, you’ll wish you had spared that money and changed your water filter on time.
How to protect your investment
An unchanged water filter can sometimes produce water with a foul odour or a strange taste. A dirty or clogged water filter can also affect the mechanical actions within your water cooler, such as the dispense solenoid valves. A mains fed water dispenser is a significant investment and really should be treated as such.
How often should the water filters be changed?
Manufacturers recommend changing Water Cooler filters every 6 months to help customers avoid build-up and damage to their Water Cooler unit, but it is ultimately up to the owner to decide when the best time to change your filter is. If you’ve spent a large quantity of money on your Water dispenser and you want to make sure it is kept in the best condition, your best next step is to change your filter as directed by the manufacturer and your water cooler supplier.
