SC-99 is a special textile pre-filter, eg to remove strong particle-laden or polluted (turbidity) input water. It is made with an anti-bacterial protection. Due to the special winding, the protection is distributed over a very large area. Upon contact of bacteria with the protective surface the majority of bacteria cannot reproduce. Water having a high content of sediments affect the optical in beverages and at worst can have a damaging effect on your system components.
The filter cartridge must be replaced after 6 months (in accordance with DIN 1988). As a basic rule, 10,000 litres of water can be filtered within a six-month period. Earlier replacement can however be necessary when the water flow becomes noticeably reduced. Earlier replacement is not the result of any deficiency in the filter used, but rather a sign of the increased presence of fine particles in unfiltered water. The water flow of a new cartridge is up to 20 liters / min depending on water pressure and filter housing. Protect from frost.
