Preparing your MINA Alkaline Pitcher before use.

Graeme Updated by Graeme

Before using your MINA Alkaline Pitcher for the first time please do the following:

  1. Wash MINA Alkaline Pitcher with mild detergent or wash in dishwasher.
  2. Condition your filter by placing it under running water for 3-5 minutes while alternating with light shaking to get rid of excess carbon, until the water runs clear.
  3. Insert new filter into upper tank. Press firmly to ensure tight seal.
  4. Fill tank twice and discard (use water for plants).

Place a white surface (e.g. a plate) in the sink under the filter. This will let you more easily see the excess carbon pieces.
