Why should we install a Cillit water protection filter?
Cillit filters will significantly reduce the existence of foreign particles and contaminants that can cause:
Taps, valves and shower heads to be clogged or damaged by foreign particle build up. Resulting in a decrease in water pressure.
Damage to gaskets and seals.
Pipe corrosion due to particle build up. And at worst, breaks and splits in the pipework.
Clogged pipes resulting in an ideal home for the growth of mould and bacteria.
An added advantage of Cillit filters is that they do not require constant filter cartridge replacement.
How it works
Water enters the filter and flows through the filter element.
The foreign particles are then retained in the filter element.
The foreign particles are washed out of the filter during the backwashing process. Backwashing should be performed on a regular basis. This involves simply turning the knob on the Eurofiltro or setting the timer to automatically backwash with the Multipur unit. The frequency will be dependant on water quality. If you are uncertain, backwash once per week.
Only a small volume of water is required for backwashing with minimal impact on water pressure to the house or property.
Fresh, clean water flows into the home, building or other structure.
What it Protects?
Cillit mains water backwash filters also protect appliances and fittings from the impact of unwanted particles, including:
Water filter taps and extends life of filter cartridges
Refrigerator ice makers
Boiling and chilled water units
Toilets and in wall cisterns
Hot water units
Hot water valves
