Q: How often do I need to backwash the system?
A: It depends on how clean or dirty the source water is.
When you feel the flow rate slowing down, backwash can improve flow rate.
(Note: To extend filter life, always use the best fresh water source you can access.
If raw water is cloudy, wait for sediment to settle out until water appears clear
and then filter the water above the sediment.)
Q: Can I use water filtered from the system itself to backwash the filter?
A: Yes. Filtered water from the filter can be used to backwash.
Collect filtered water in a clean disposable bottle. Squeeze clean water into the filter from the filter outlet.
Q: How do I know its time to replace the filter?
A: The filter will not allow water to flow when its filtration pores are blocked. If the water flow slows
down or there is no water flowing out through the filter, it is time to replace your filter.
Q: Does this work on E.coli and parasites like Giardia and Cryptosporidium?
A: Yes. Miniwell L630 is capable of filtering 99.9% of bacteria and parasites.
Q: Can this filter remove unpleasant taste in raw water?
A: Hollow fiber can not remove unpleasant taste and pigment in raw water.
L630 is the most basic filtration system for fresh water filtration with 99.9% removal rate of all bacteria.
If you would like to improve the taste of water, Miniwell L610, L600, and L620 can fit your needs.
Q: Does Miniwell Gravity Water Filter process salt water?
A: No. Miniwell L630’s filtration pore size on the membrane is 0.1 micron.
Dissolved salt passes through a 0.1 micron membrane.
In other words, Miniwell L630 keeps minerals from natural fresh water sources in filtered water.
