The Aqua Sphere Whole Home Clean & Clear is designed for application in the main supply pipe or a part of the installation. The purpose of the equipment is to supply the drinking water network downstream of bacteria and/or particle safe water at rates of up to 22 GPM.
Ultrafiltration is a technique used to filter small undissolved particles, such as bacteria out of the water supply. Ultrafiltration is a membrane based technique. The inside of the membrane acts as a very fine sieve, with a pore size of 0.015 to 0.03 micrometres (~0.6 to !1.2 microinch). The water has to be pressed through the pores with a pressure of at least 1 bar (~14.5 PSI). The reduction of the bacteria by this technique is 99.99999% (log 6).
The Aqua Sphere Whole Home Clean & Clear is equipped with an automatic forward flush function. During this stage all bacteria that remain trapped in the membranes are rinsed into the sewer.
The operating principle of the Aqua Sphere Whole Home Clean & Clear is ultrafiltration, where the upstream water supply is separated by a physical barrier of the downstream water (downstream installation). All particles in the water greater than 0.03 μm (~1.2 µin) remain in the filter. The bacterium safe water (permeate) is supplied to the drinking water system. The captured particles are automatically washed away to the drain.
To ensure the correct operation of the equipment it should be at least serviced annually by a service technician authorized by the manufacturer. The following aspects should be checked every year.
▪ Cleaning and disinfection of the filter modules
▪ Checking the operation of the equipment
▪ Monitoring the operation and integrity of the filter modules
The equipment has a one year manufacturer’s warranty. The warranty applies to components. The warranty period is 1 year on material and/or workmanship. The warranty begins on the day of delivery. Incorrect use and/or use of non-original parts will void any warranty. In case of a defect, the manufacturer will assess the cause of the defect. The warranty on the equipment is not applicable for contamination and destruction of
the membranes by poor water supply and external factors.
