Filter Change

The filters in your Puratap Purification System need changing every 12 months or 2000L of water, whichever comes first. Our filters have been put through vigorous scientific testing to find the optimal and safest time to change them.

After 12 months or 2000L of water, larger chemicals such as trihalomethanes and herbicides are able to bypass the carbon in the filter, meaning that it is no longer filtering effectively. Therefore 12 months is the maximum time to leave the filters in your unit.
