Water filtration is crucial for ensuring access to clean, safe drinking water, especially in environments where tap water quality might be questionable. The Awesome Water® 7 and 8 Stage Filter and Awesome Water® Filtration Bottle are a popular choice for many households and businesses due to its effectiveness in purifying water. However, knowing how to properly change the water filter in your filtration bottle is essential for maintaining optimal water quality. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process step by step, ensuring that you can enjoy safe, refreshing water immediately after replacing the water filter.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies handy:

  • Replacement Awesome Water® 7 or 8 Stage Filter
  • Replacement felt pads (1 x black & 1 x white)
  • Clean, dry hands
  • Scrubbing brush
  • Clean cloth.
  • Optional: gloves for extra cleanliness

Step 2: Prepare the Workspace

Choose a clean, well-lit area to work on changing the water filter. Ensure that the surface is stable and free from any contaminants that could potentially compromise the cleanliness of your water cooler, filtration bottle or water filter.

Step 3: Remove the Old Water Filter

Carefully remove the filtration bottle from the top of the water cooler, then open the filtration bottle and remove the old water filter and the two felt pads inside the plastic dome. Dispose of the old water filter according to local regulations. Be cautious not to spill any water during this process.

Step 4: Clean the filtration bottle

It's time to give your filtration bottle a thorough cleaning, clean the filtration bottle with the old water filter and old felt pads removed. Deconstruct the filtration bottle, then use water and a cleaning brush or cloth to scrub/wipe the inside and outside of the filtration bottle and all parts, ensuring you remove any residue or buildup. Rinse the filtration bottle and all parts thoroughly with clean water and dry it with a clean towel.

Step 5: Rinse the Filter

Rinse the new water filter under the tap with cold water for 2 minutes or so before use to remove any loose carbon dust or particles. Also give the new felt pads a quick 10 second rinse.

Step 6: Install the New Water Filter

Take the new water filter and screw it into the thread in the filtration bottle. Make sure it fits securely, sits properly in place and the o-ring is straight. Also place the two new felt pads inisde the plastic dome (white on top).

Step 7: Reconstruct the filtration bottle

Reconstruct the filtration bottle, ensuring that the water filter, plastic dome and float valve are correctly fitted. Double-check to make sure the filtration bottle is reconstructed correctly.

Step 8: Place the Filtration Bottle Back on the Water Cooler

Carefully place the filtration bottle back on top of the water cooler, making sure it is positioned securely and fill with tap water. Once water has been added to the top part of the filtration bottle, re-check the water filter and plastic dome are fitted correctly and there are no leaks that could allow unfiltered water to bypass the new water filter and enter the bottom filtered water section.

Step 9: Enjoy Safe, Refreshing Water

Once the new water filter is installed, the filtration bottle is securely in place and is filled with tap water, you can immediately start enjoying clean, refreshing water from your water cooler. The Awesome Water® 7 and 8 Stage Filter is designed to provide superior filtration, removing impurities and contaminants to ensure the safety and quality of your drinking water.

In conclusion, changing the water filter in your filtration bottle is a simple and straight forward process that can help maintain the quality and safety of your drinking water.
