Filter Replacement Instructions:
The Zip HydroTap notifies when filter replacement is due. The default setting is 6,000 Litres, but this can be set in increments of 1,000 Litre from 1,000 Litre to 10,000 Litres. When a filter change is due, the Change Filter light will flash white once a minute and remain so until reset. A filter status light is located between the Red and Blue Lights on the tap head assembly.
Depending on local water quality conditions and usage, the filter may require changing anywhere from 1,000 Litres to 10,000 Litres.
