What is a water filter?
A water filter is a piece of equipment in a water purifier that removes impurities and contaminants from water, making it safe for consumption, cooking, and other household use. Ceramic filters and UV filters are each designed to remove certain impurities from the water.
With prolonged use, the water filter may become clogged with sediment, invisible debris that comes with the water, and contaminants, reducing the efficiency of the water purifier and may cause health problems. so It is important to know when to change the water filter to ensure that the water we use remains clean and safe for consumption.
When to change?
The frequency of filter replacement depends on factors such as filter type, level of use, and quality of tap water.
