WHERE DO we get




FRESH WATER?



















Water is brought to a

treatment facility through


SURFACE WATER underground pipes where

it is treated and disinfected
GROUND WATER
and then goes to distribution

centers where it is piped to


our homes.














The decision to find other

options as a source of


drinking water is usually

based on people not liking

the taste, odor or color

of their tap water or as a


back-up for the local water

treatment systems.

FILTRATION vs



TREATMENT


















Trapped
Organisms
Filtration is a physical method

that traps contaminants and

organisms in the filter media.





























Water ‘treatment’ methods such

as ozone, chlorine, and UV kill or

sterilize the organisms, but don’t

remove them from the water.



Dead

AQ242MP WW (NO-CAL) 2242.01.0419 | 7

FILTRATION OPTIONS




FAUCET MOUNTS AND

PITCHERS
Water goes through a carbon or

mixed media filter which absorbs

contaminants. They primarily improve

tastes and odor.




MECHANICAL FILTRATION

Water goes through porous materials
that remove only suspended solid

particles, but not viruses.











ACTIVATED CARBON

FILTRATION

Water flows through an activated carbon
surface that traps some elements in

water like chlorine, dissolved gasses

and some organic contaminants.






REVERSE OSMOSIS

Water flows through two chambers: It
is pressure driven from the first into

the second chamber, thus leaving the

contaminants behind.


Read the complete description of
filtration and treatment options on
page 58 from this seminar.

8 | AQ242MP WW (NO-CAL) 2242.01.0419

TREATMENT OPTIONS




ULTRA-VIOLET TREATMENT

Water flows in very thin layers by UV

lamps which eliminate bacteria in a

way similar to sunrays.









OZONE DISINFECTION

Ozone-saturated bubbles are mixed
with water where the ozone eliminates

viruses and bacteria. Ozone is made

by passing oxygen through ultraviolet
light or a “cold” electrical discharge.






OTHER CHEMICAL

TREATMENTS

These processes add to the water
chemical substances like chlorine,

which kill the contaminants, but do

not remove them from the water.






BOILING

Boiling water kills contaminants
but does not remove them. It also

eliminates most of the natural

minerals and it requires a lot of

energy.

IS BOTTLED WATER





A GOOD OPTION?






Bottled water may seem like a good option because it is portable
and it is available almost everywhere, from grocery stores to vending

machines or concession stands in work places or recreational areas.

However, bottled water has several issues

for you and for the environment.




ISSUES FOR YOU

THIS is




our CAUSE









ELIMINATE SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WASTE

FROM OUR ENVIRONMENT











The plastic currently accumulated in the
oceans could destroy as many as

of the food chain.


With the RENA WARE WATER FILTERS
we help eliminate single-use plastic water
bottles.


Imagine the DIFFERENCE we could make
if every person used the Rena Ware Filter
Bottle or Aqua Nano at home filters
instead of bottled water!


You can make a difference by sharing
the Rena Ware Water Filters with
everyone, not only as a product but as
an OPPORTUNITY for them to earn by
sharing our Cause with their family and
friends.

RENA WARE AQUA HD TECHNOLOGY
TM



Aqua HD is High Molecular Deposition Technology. It consists of a fibrous filter.
TM
The fibers are like a microscopic mesh that traps contaminants down to the nano level,

much more effectively and with much more grabbing power than a physical filtering
barrier. This happens thanks to a natural process called adsorption.



















Absorption Adsorption


A process where the molecules of a A process where the molecules of a
substance are taken in by another substance adhere to a surface.

substance.



The Aqua HD filter fibers contain a mineral called boehmite. This mineral has
TM
a positive electric charge, while contaminants have a negative electric charge. The

mineral acts like a magnet: It attracts the contaminants and traps them on the filter
surface (it adsorbs them), so they can’t escape.
































AQ242MP WW (NO-CAL) 2242.01.0419 | 15

THIS ESPECIALLY POWERFUL

PROCESS HAS


THREE MAIN ADVANTAGES:




NANO FILTRATION HIGH FLOW HIGH CAPACITY



1. NANO FILTRATION

While most conventional filters filter down to 1 micron, Aqua HD provides filtration
TM
at nanolevel. At nanolevel particles are measured in nanometers.
1 nanometer = 1,000 times smaller than 1 micron. Consider that a human hair is
50,000-100,000 nanometers in diameter. Nano particles can only be seen through
an electron microscope.



CYSTS AND OTHER
IMPURITIES BIGGER

SKIN CELLS 1 MICRON

Laboratory tests show that this sub-microscopic level of filtration removes more than
8
98% of bacteria and viruses that can cause waterborne diseases such as cholerae,
hepatitis, viral gastroenteritis, typhoid fever among many others.

Aqua HD specifically removes:
TM
• 99.9% of viruses and bacteria in the Rena Ware at home filtration systems;
9
• 98.3% of viruses and 99.9% of bacteria in the Rena Ware Filter Bottle.
10
8. For detailed information about the laboratory tests, see pp. 58-59.
9-10. The contaminants removed by the Aqua✓HD are not necessarily in your tap water. The Aqua✓HD is intended for use only with municipally treated tap water. Water of unknown
TM
TM
origin can contain a variety of contaminants or substances that may or may not be removed by the Aqua✓HD . Neither the Rena Ware Filter Bottle nor the home filtration systems have
TM
been tested for the removal of arsenic. The Rena Ware Filter Bottle does not filter lead.
16 | AQ242MP WW (NO-CAL) 2242.01.0419

2. HIGH FLOW


The fibers containing boehmite allow the Aqua HD filter structure to be more open
TM
than the structure of conventional filters, and this in turn allows a much higher water
flow: up to 6 LPM (1.5 GPM) for the at home filtering units.
11


3. HIGH CAPACITY


The fibers in each filter create a large surface area.


In the Filter Bottle the filter surface area is 1,358 m (14,617 sq ft) - that is larger
2
than three basketball courts!












FILTER
BASKETBALL COURT
In the at home filters, the surface area is 8,175 m (88,000 sq ft) – that is larger than
2
a soccer field!



























FILTER
SOCCER FIELD

This large surface area allows each bottle cartridge to filter up to 1,600 L
(423 gal), and each home filtration cartridge to filter up to 11,355 L (3,000 gal)

before replacement. 12


11. LPM = liters per minute; GPM = gallons per minute. A flow of 6 LPM (1.5 GPM) requires water pressure greater or equal to 30 pounds per square inch (≥ 30 PSI).
12. In the at home filtration systems, actual capacity will depend on the amount of suspended solids and particles in your local water system. In certain water supplies, tastes and
odors may return or the flow may decrease prior to the rated capacity. In these cases the Aqua✓HD™ media insert should be replaced more often. For optimum performance we
recommend replacing the Aqua✓HD™ media insert at least every 5 years even if the red light has not yet come on. In the Rena Ware Filter Bottle, water containing large amounts of
sediment will reduce the duration of the filter cartridge, and using the cartridge beyond its capacity could reduce the quality of the filtered water.

INSTALLATION










Be sure to read the Use and Care Booklets (AQ623, AQ624) and watch the videos for
details on installation, daily usage and maintenance (available on renaware.com, links
have embedded in this seminar). Here are some highlights.

FOR ALL THREE MODELS


• Insert 2 new, high-quality AA batteries (not included) in the base.


• Replacing the batteries does not affect the flow meter's memory.
















FOR UCU AND LX MODELS


• Always install with two people.


• To install the "Bypass" Side Faucet, if there is not already an extra hole next to the
main faucet, a 22 mm (0.87") in diameter needs to be drilled.


• An optional bracket is available for mounting the filtering unit on a wall under the

sink.

FOR UCU ONLY


• Lift out old faucet and measure faucet hole BEFORE disconnecting.


• Ensure faucet body is front-aligned and that the light collar and faucet are held

stationary while tightening from below. The parts should not move independently
to avoid cutting the data cable and disabling the indicator lights.



The Aqua Nano units may not be appropriate for customers known to have less
than 30 PSI in water pressure (i.e. if it takes more than 20 seconds to fill a 1 liter
container).

TROUBLESHOOTING











Be sure to read the Use and Care Booklets (AQ623, AQ624) and watch the videos for
details on troubleshooting (available on renaware.com, links have been embedded in
this seminar). Here are some highlights.



EMERGENCY USE FOR UCU INTEGRATED
FAUCET ONLY



• In the event that a UCU model clogs and the customer does not have replacement
media inserts for either the pre-filter or the main filter, they need to order replacements
right away! The model number and the specifications are found on the bottom of the

base unit.


• Until the new inserts arrive and as an emergency measure only, customers can
simply remove both cartridges and connect the inlet assembly directly to the locking
plate on the base. This will allow customers to temporarily run the unfiltered tap
water through the integrated faucet.




This operation should be done only in case of emergency. Running unfiltered
water through the integrated faucet by bypassing the filter cartridges may allow
particles from raw tap water to accumulate inside the faucet. Therefore the
customer needs to disinfect the integrated faucet before installing new media
inserts to prevent these deposits from contaminating the filtered water.



See instructions for disinfecting the faucet in the "Troubleshooting" section of the
Use and Care booklet (AQ624).

21) 1- Thanks to a natural process called adsorption. The filter is made of fibers that contain a mineral (boehmite) that has a
positive electric charge. The bacteria have a negative electric charge. Thanks to this opposite electrical charge, when the bacteria
enter the filter they form a permanent bond with the boehmite and they become trapped on the surface of the filter.

2- The LED indicator lights will turn yellow at first and then red. Yellow means it is time to order a media insert replacement and
red means the media insert is no longer filtering effectively.

3- Dirt is mechanically filtered out. That means that larger particles are physically blocked by the filter mesh (similar to what
happens with a strainer). Other, much smaller contaminants are attracted to the filter through the natural process of adsorpcion.
(See answer 1)


4- The filtration is real: At home filtration really eliminates 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, and the Rena Ware Filter Bottle really
eliminates 98.3% of viruses and 99.9% of bacteria.

5- The minerals present in water depend on the water source and the path water goes through. The Aqua✓HD filter does not
TM
remove minerals.



48 | AQ242MP WW (NO-CAL) 2242.01.0419

PRACTICE ANSWERS







6- The cartridges consist of two parts. The housing, which is reusable, and the media insert which is replaceable. The duration/
life of the media insert really depends on usage and water conditions. Each at home filtration unit can filter up to 11,355 L
(3,000 gal). Each Filter Bottle can filter up to 1,600 L (423 gal).

7- The fibers contain boehmite, a mineral of the aluminum ore Bauxite. The media inserts are not biodegradable. Water filters in
general tend to not be biodegradable. Biodegradable things dissolve in water. So a biodegradable water filter would not last, as it
would dissolve. The Rena Ware filters can be thrown away with general waste, since the contaminants are permanently trapped
and will not be released.

TM
8- The Aqua✓HD technology these filters are based on will not change because it uses a process that occurs in nature (See
answer 1). So the current purchase will not be surpassed by technological advances and will be valuable for a long time.


9- Answers really depend on the model and actual issue. Ask for more information: What model are you looking to install? And
what in particular would you like help with?

10- This is not a question, it is a comment. Kindly ask the customer for a question, for example say: What question do you have?,
What is your concern?, or What other information would you like to have? Be ready to provide information on the savings and the
features of the Rena Ware water filters. To give this information to prospects and clients you can use the Water filters brochure
