  1. Recieved an email last week telling me it is time to change the filters ?

    Bought in December so no warnings yet.

    Might be a sales ploy to buy the filters which were offered in the email :-

    Dear alan,

    The following components of your system Osmio Zero Reverse Osmosis Replacement Filters Pack are due for replacement:

    some editing has gone on

    response by dk41 was along the lines of no and that probably rules out that segment of the market - but in dk stylee a bit more :)

    Ahh I see, thanks for the clarification

    No you don't need to drain any filters, just tip out the water before refilling.

    One person was putting in the refilled supply pitcher, closing lid and when it filtered a bit and dropped by 0.5 litre or more topping it right up...which is not good to do.

    Thanks for the clarification @DavecUK, nice to know I got something right ;)

    Aaand...ALWAYS completely empty the supply pitcher before refilling NEVER put a fresh one in, watch the level drop as the tank fills a bit, then top it up another 500ml to 1 litre. failure to do this is the difference between a filter life of 1 year and 3 or 4 months.


    Hi @DavecUK,

    Not quite understanding this last paragraph mate (maybe me being thick).

    Never put a fresh what in ?

    I always empty the supply pitcher but do not wait till the filter drains, I just tip out the remaining water and refil. Do I need to drain the filter ?

    what are you topping up ?


    I know TDS is not the be all and end all but just for the record my tap water hovers around 300 and after RO its 23 !

    thanks, I’ve seen you sold some gators previously..how long did the valve things last/how much were replacements? 

    atleast with airscape/atom they don’t need replacing 

    The valves were about £12 for 6 (Amazon) I didn't keep the canisters for long enough to change a valve (I did change when I sold them)

    I much prefer the Airscape Ceramic as they do a better job (imo) and look cool as well.
