What purposes can the
filtered drinking water be used for?
Drinking water purified by the
PROaqua 4200 filter is perfectly suitable for cooking, drinking, washing
vegetables, preparation of baby food, facial cleansing, watering plants or
feeding pets etc.
The PROaqua 4200 drinking water
can be plugged to all tubes that allow quantities of approx. 2,5 l/min., e.g. in households (kitchen sink), in caravans, on private boats, etc.
How is the PROaqua 4200 drinking
water filter connected to the water supply system?
Usually, PROaqua 4200 drinking water
filters are installed beneath the kitchen sink, the drinking water is then drawn from a special tap. The
old fittings can be used for washing and cleaning. The average
installation for a filter unit takes about 30 minutes.
Why is the PROaqua 4200 not
directly in the central domestic water supply?
The average water consumption
per day and person in Europe is approx. 140 liters. Only 3 liters of this
amount are used as drinking water. The remaining water is used for
body hygiene, to flush the toilet, to wash cars, to water the garden, etc. Treatment of water for domestic
use is unnecessary, uneconomical and also not ecological.
Can the PROaqua 4200 drinking
water filter also be used with hot water?
No. The activated carbon, the ion exchangers
and the dolomite rocks should only be used
with cold water (max.35°C). The filter media would certainly not be
destroyed by hot water, however, after a longer period of time the filters efficiency might be negatively affected.
Do the filter media used in the
PROaqua 4200 comply with food regulations?
Yes. All the filter media used
comply with food regulations and are subject to severe controls. The high
quality was awarded with the "GS" quality seal.
What should be done if the
filter is not used for a long time?
the filter has not been used for a long time (more than 4 weeks),
it should be regenerated. If the filter has not been used for
a short time only (3 days), there is no need to regenerate it.
Let 10 liters of water run through it in order to remove the old
water from the filter.
How long does it take to
regenerate a PROaqua 4200 drinking water filter?
the case of an average nitrite content of
approx. 100 mg/l. and the respective filter configuration, a regeneration is
8 - 12 weeks. The preparation of the regeneration of the PROaqua 4200 drinking water filter takes
approx. 3 minutes, the regeneration of the filter media approx. 2 hours. The
regeneration does not need to be watched. Then it takes approx. 3 minutes to
reconnect the filter to the system.
the so-called "channelling effect", which hinders optimal
filtering, occur with the PROaqua 4200 ?
No. On the one hand the filter
media are filled in rather tightly and they are embedded into the filter in
a way that prevents displacement.On the other hand, the design and internal
structure of the filter avoid the formation of a channel. All tests carried out
