How do I prepare my Gravity Water System before use?

Francesca Prato Updated by Francesca Prato

Before using your Gravity Water System for the first time please do the following:

Ceramic Pre-filter:

  1. Soak in cool water for ten minutes.
  2. Using the included grey scrub pad (or equivalent), scrub the top of the Ceramic Pre-filter using moderate pressure.
You are removing a thin layer of ceramic material, this is normal and by design.

Fluoride Filter and 5-Stage Filter:

  1. Run water through the top of the filter until the water runs clear out the bottom.
  2. Shake the filter while running water through it. The purpose of this step is to remove any excess Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) pieces.
Place a white surface (e.g. a plate) in the sink under the filter. This will let you more easily see the black GAC pieces.

Mineral Stones:

  1. Rinse the Mineral Stones.
  2. Boil the Mineral Stones for 1 - 2 minutes, then let air dry.
