All AquaWave™ reverse osmosis water purifiers are equipped with NSF (National Sanitary Foundation, USA) certified Purefer™ series filters, cartridges, and housings. All components contain only materials that are environmentally friendly and fully recyclable. In the user manual you will find a detailed filter change plan which we recommend you follow. However, depending on the quality of the incoming water you might decide to divert from this plan. If so, we recommend filter changes at least every 6 months.
