What purposes can the filtered drinking
water be used for?
Drinking water purified by the PROaqua 4200
filter is perfectly suitable for cooking, drinking,
washing vegetables, preparation of baby food,
facial cleansing, watering plants or feeding pets
The PROaqua 4200 drinking water can be
plugged to all tubes that allow quantities of max.
2,5 l/min., e.g. in households (kitchen sink), in
caravans, on private boats, etc.
How is the PROaqua 4200 drinking water
filter connected to the water supply system?
Usually, PROaqua 4200 drinking water filters are
installed beneath the kitchen sink, the drinking
water is then drawn from a special tap. The old
fittings can be used for washing and cleaning.
The average installation for a filter unit takes
about 30 minutes.
Why is the PROaqua 4200 not installed
directly in the central domestic water
The average water consumption per day and
person in Europe is approx. 140 liters. Only 3
liters of this amount are used as drinking water.
The remaining water is used for body hygiene, to
flush the toilet, to wash cars, to water the
garden, etc. Treatment of water for domestic use
is unnecessary, uneconomical and also not
Can the PROaqua 4200 drinking water filter
also be used with hot water?
No. The activated carbon, the ion exchangers
and the dolomite rocks should only be used with
cold water (max.35°C). The filter media would
certainly not be destroyed by hot water, however,
after a longer period of time the filter’s efficiency
might be negatively affected.
Do the filter media used in the PROaqua 4200
comply with food regulations?
Yes. All the filter media used comply with food
regulations and are subject to severe controls.
The high quality was awarded with the "GS"
What should be done if the filter is not used
for a long time?
If the filter has not been used for a long time
(more than 4 weeks), it should be regenerated. If
the filter has not been used for a short time only
(3 days), there is no need to regenerate it. Let 10
liters of water run through it in order to remove
the old water from the filter.
How long does it take to regenerate a
PROaqua 4200 drinking water filter?
In the case of an average nitrite content of
approx. 100 mg/l. and the respective filter
configuration, a regeneration is required every
8 - 12 weeks. The preparation of the
regeneration of the PROaqua 4200 drinking
water filter takes approx. 3 minutes, the
regeneration of the filter media approx. 2 hours.
The regeneration does not need to be watched.
Then it takes approx. 3 minutes to reconnect
the filter to the system.
Does the so-called "channelling effect",
which hinders optimal filtering, occur with
the PROaqua 4200 ?
No. On the one hand the filter media are filled in
rather tightly and they are embedded into the
filter in a way that prevents displacement.On
the other hand, the design and internal structure
of the filter avoid the formation of a channel. All
tests carried out proved this.
