Do You Know When the Filter Cartridge Needs to be Replaced?cid=191


In our daily lives, various filtering equipment plan an important role, and the Filter Cartridge is one of the core components of these equipment. Timely and accurate judgment of whether the filter element needs to be replaced is crucial to ensuring the normal operation of the equipment and ensuring our health and safety.


1. Observe The Water Output

The water output is an intuitive signal to judge whether the filter element needs to be replaced. As the use time of the Filter Element increases, its filtration capacity will gradually weaken, and impurities will gradually block the filter element, resulting in a reduction in water throughput. If you find that the water output of the filter equipment is significantly less than before, or even the water flow becomes smaller and intermittent, then it is likely that the filter element has reached a saturated sate and needs to be replaced in time.


2. Check Water Quality

The main function of the Water Filter Element is to purify water quality. If there are obvious changes in the water filtered by the filter element, such as odor, turbidity, suspended matter, etc., this is also an important reminder that the filter element needs to be replaced. The deterioration of water quality indicates that the filter element is no longer able to effectively remove pollutants in the water, and continued use may cause health effects.


3. Reference Usage Time

Generally speaking, filter elements have a recommended service life. Although actual usage may vary depending on factors such as water quality, frequency of use, etc., the reference usage time is still an important reference. When the use time of the filter element approaches or exceeds the recommended period, it is necessary to pay close attention to its performance in order to make timely replacement decisions.


4. Consider Device Tips

Many advanced filtration equipment are now equipped with intelligent monitoring systems or prompt functions. These systems will monitor the status of the Cartridge Filter in real time and issue prompt messages when replacement is required, such as indicator lights flashing, screen prompts, etc. We should pay attention to these prompts of the equipment and replace the filter element in time as required.


5. Professional Testing methods

For some occasions with higher water quality requirements, professional testing equipment can also be used to determine whether the Water Filter Cartridge needs to be replaced. For example, you can use a water quality testing instrument to test and compare the water before and after filtration, and use the test results to evaluate the filtration effect of the filter element. If the test results shows that the water quality is not up to standard, the filter element needs to be replaced.


In addition, there are some special circumstances that need to be noted. For example, in areas with particularly poor water quality, the filter element may reach saturation faster; when the equipment is used frequently, the loss of the filter element will also increase accordingly. Therefor, when judging whether the filter element needs to be replaced, a variety of factors must be considered. In short, by observing the water output, checking the water quality, referring to the usage time, paying attention to the equipment prompts, and using professional testing methods, we can more accurately determine whether the filter element needs to be replaced.
