What if the water purifier of the whole house water purification project is not used for a long time?
We may not be able to use the water purifier for a long time due to various factors, such as work trips, stop running water, traveling, family relocation, and so on.
So after the water purifier of the whole house water purification project is not used for a long time, what should be paid attention to when using the water purifier again?
Everyone knows that when the water purifier is used, it is necessary to keep the filter element in a wet state, that is, when using the water purifier, it is necessary to maintain the continuous use of the water purifier from time to time. The filter element dries, which will seriously cause the water production to drop drastically and even fail to recover. What should I do if I do not use the water purifier for a long time?
1. Rinse the water purifier.
To use the water purifier again, the water purifier needs to be rinsed. If it has not been used for 3 days, rinse it for about 3-5 minutes. If it is more than 10 days or more, it needs to be rinsed for more than 15 minutes. Until all the remaining water is rinsed out. Otherwise, the water from the water purifier may have an odor.
2. Open the sewage outlet to exclude impurities such as sand, rust and so on.
Before using it again, we need to open the sewage outlet first, and remove the sediment and rust, so as not to cause the water purifier to be blocked, and there will be no water or odor.
3. Replace the filter element if necessary.
If the water purifier is not used for a long time (such as 6 months or more), it will cause the filter element to lose its filtering function and the water purifier will fail. Then we must first clean the filter of the water purifier. After cleaning, test whether there is a water purification effect. If it still does not, you need to replace the filter.
4. Replace the ultrafiltration membrane.
If the water purifier is not used for 3 months or more, it will cause the dry plaque and pore diameter of the ultrafiltration membrane to shrink. The water from the water purifier will become smaller and the ultrafiltration membrane cannot be recovered. If this happens, replace the ultrafiltration membrane.
5. Turn off the tap of the water inlet.
If the water purifier is not used for a long time, please close the water inlet valve of the tap water. To avoid unnecessary losses due to floods caused by the faucet falling off due to too much water pressure.
6. Backwash water purifier filter.
If the water purifier is not used for more than one month, more bacteria and mold may grow inside the water purifier filter. In order to avoid secondary pollution, it is recommended to clean the filter all once. After washing, if the water quality is still not good and the water is too small, we can backwash the water purifier. The above are some of the precautions and possible situations for household water purifiers that are not used for a long time. In non-special circumstances, the whole house water purification project still recommends that you always use the water purifier after installing the water purifier.
