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
Particles
Filtration is a physical

method that traps particles

in the filter media.



























Water ‘treatment’ methods


such as ozone, aesthetic

chlorine, and UV kill or sterilize

the particles, but don’t remove

them from the water.

Dead
Particles








AQ242 CAL 2242.C1.1019 | 7

FILTRATION OPTIONS




FAUCET MOUNTS AND

PITCHERS
Water goes through a carbon or mixed

media filter which absorbs particles.

They primarily improve tastes and

odor.




MECHANICAL FILTRATION

Water goes through porous materials
that remove only suspended solid

particles.











ACTIVATED CARBON

FILTRATION

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

water like aesthetic chlorine, dissolved

gasses and some organic particles.






REVERSE OSMOSIS

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

the second chamber, thus leaving the

particles behind.









8 | AQ242 CAL 2242.C1.1019

TREATMENT OPTIONS




ULTRA-VIOLET TREATMENT

Water flows in very thin layers by

UV lamps which eliminate organic

particles in a way similar to sunrays.









OZONE DISINFECTION

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

particles. 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 aesthetic

chlorine, which kill the particles, but

do not remove them from the water.






BOILING

Boiling water kills most particles
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.

RENA WARE AQUA HD TECHNOLOGY
TM



Aqua HD is High Molecular Deposition Technology. It consists of a fibrous filter. The
TM
fibers are like a microscopic mesh that traps particles down to the nanolevel, 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 a
TM
positive electric charge, while particles have a negative electric charge. The mineral

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
































AQ242 CAL 2242.C1.1019 | 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.
8
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
PARTICLES BIGGER
THAN 1 MICRON

SKIN CELLS 1 MICRON
(30 MICRONS)




HUMAN HAIR
(100 MICRONS)






OTHER PARTICLES
SMALLER THAN
1 MICRON

1 MICRON


1 NANOMETER



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.
9

8. The particles 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 origin
can contain a variety of particles 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 been
tested for the removal of arsenic. The Rena Ware Filter Bottle does not filter lead.
9. 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).
16 | AQ242 CAL 2242.C1.1019

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. 10





Exercise 4



10. Actual capacity will depend on the amount of suspended solids and particles in your local water system. In certain water supplies, tastes or odors may be reduced but not
completely eliminated or the flow may decrease prior to reaching the rated capacity. In the at home filters, the Main Filter media should be replaced more often. For optimum
performance, we recommend replacing the Main Filter media at least every 5 years or when the water flow is too low, even if the red light has not yet come on. In the Filter Bottle the
lifespan of the filter cartridge will reduce and using the filter beyond the 1,600 (423 gal) capacity may reduce the quality of your filtered water.

INSTALLATION










Be sure to read the Use and Care Booklets (AQ650, AQ620) and watch the videos for
details on installation, daily usage and maintenance (available on renaware.com, links
are 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 (AQ650, AQ620) 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 (AQ650).
