Water flow reduced over time (sediment)
If you have a lot of sediment in your water, then the filter may become blocked over time. It can easily be fixed with the following steps: -
- Open the shower filter
- Flip the internal filter cartridge over (so the mesh end is facing down towards the shower)
- Close the shower filter and run hot water through it for a couple of mins.
- Open the shower filter and flip the cartridge back to the normal position and close.
Backwashing the cartridge will remove sediment, and get your shower filter working again.
If you have been using your filter for more than 6 months, you may need to change your filter cartridge. This should be done every 6 months, for optimal results.
