Is it possible to clean the NAQWA® SWR cartridges?
In practice, cartridge cleaning generally is not needed. If needed, it may be needed only after several months of continuous operation and only when dealing with heavily contaminated water [for several months in succession]. Cartridge cleaning may be needed, perhaps, after 1 year of operation. Prior to this, simply rinsing the track membrane cartridge and preliminary filtering cover (separately) under running water is sufficient. There is no need to change cartridges since the NAQWA® SWR cartridges are very easy to clean - just rinse them in water using a soft cloth. In case of excessive cartridge contamination a small amount of mild citric acid solution can be used. Please refer to the User Manual for specific cleaning instructions.
