The patent pending UltraSteam filter uses the highest quality patented filter media plus exclusive O-Dobi alkalizing, ionizing and hydrogen producing media. It also supplies infused magnesium and calcium through the life of the filter, calculated and tested over 3000 liters (about 800 gallons).
The cartridge is designed to last a family of 4 each drinking 2 liters of water per day a complete year HOWEVER if there's only two of you, you should still replace the cartridge yearly. Why? It's an industry standard in the water industry to replace cartridges yearly but that's not the reason. It's just a good idea to NOT have that bacteria hanging around taking the risk of it growing and being re-introduced into your water.
Also, when we go into production we make improvements and upgrades to keep-up with the water problems. When you replace your cartridge you'll be upgraded at no additional cost and it will be like getting a new UltraStream when you do.
Instructions to install the stainless sleeve should be included when you get it.
This VIDEO explains HOW to change your UltraStream Cartridge, the simplest cartridge change in the industry.
Note: it's important to NOT screw down too tightly the new cartridge. If you do, it may break the base. It only needs to be "snug."
