The Lotus needs to be flushed once a month. In the box you will find two options that can be used to flush the unit.
1) If you use the jet (Part #8), turn it until you see the water spraying fairly strong and let it spray for 30 seconds. Please remember to put a bucket underneath to catch the water.
2) If you use the valve (Part #9) you need to open the valve all the way and let the water run for 30 seconds.Please remember to put a bucket underneath to catch the water.
The advantage of using the valve is that a hose can be attached, but when possible the manufacturer recommends using the blue jet for the flush as it does a better job at cleaning out the unit.
Note: If you are having a hard time turning the valve or jet on the bottom, close the main water and open a faucet in your home (this will release pressure), close the faucet and try again to open the valve/jet. Open the main water to flush the unit.
Once a year, we recommend placing the mesh filter and the til rod in vinegar for 30 min to keep them clean.
Don’t forget to put a bucket underneath to catch water!
You will need to change your PF2 filter at least every 6 months or earlier if the water in your area is really dirty. Find out more about purchasing your PF2 here.
