Installation

AFI Clear Action Filters
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INSTALLERS AND USERS

  1. Filter should be installed so the 1/2" clean out is level or lower than the inlet and outlet. Vertical is best for Sand Separator filters. Do not install 1/2" clean out higher than the inlet and outlet! Install so water will flow with the arrow direction on the gray tee body.
  2. Install filter in a valve box or in a shaded area. Direct sunlight will degrade plastic parts.
  3. Remove canister and screen when gluing filter body into the system. This will prevent glue and primer from ruining the screen and canister, glue or primer on the clear poly carbonate canister will void the warranty.
  4. Use the correct solvent cement and gluing practices to assure a proper glue joint. Let glue joint dry according to glue manufactures recommendations before testing or operating system.
  5. Hand tighten canister. Use of tools or pipe sealant compounds on O-ring sealed joints will void warranty. Use only Teflon tape on clean out end of the canister.
  6. Filter must be installed at least 25 feet from zone valves, preferably right after the main on/off valve where the water source enters the property being filtered.
  7. Open a valve downstream of filter and turn main line on SLOWLY when turning pressure into filter to avoid a water hammer effect.
  8. Install outside of structures.
  9. Not for use with compressed air or gas.
  10. Thermoplastics decrease in strength when the temperature rises above 73º F, maximum operating temperature should not exceed 120º F.
  11. For culinary water users. Use as a prefilter only, this product is not built, tested or rated for use as a primary filter only on culinary water systems.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INSTALLERS AND USERS

  1. Filter can be installed in a vertical or horizontal position as long as the cleanout is level or lower than the inlet & outlet. 1 1/2" CLEAN OUT MUST BE LEVEL OR LOWER THAN THE INLET. Install so water will flow with the arrow direction on the filter.
  2. The filter must be installed at least 25 feet from zone valves, preferably right after the main on/off valve where the water source enters the property that is being filtered. 
  3. Install filter underground (in a valve box) or in a shaded area. Direct sunlight will degrade plastic parts. We recommend you bury the filter all except the clean out end. The clean out should be exposed in an open valve box so the screen can still be pulled out and maintained.
  4. Remove screen when gluing filter body into the system. This will prevent glue and primer from ruining the screen.
  5. Use the correct solvent cement and gluing practices to assure a proper glue joint. Let glue joint dry according to glue manufactures recommendations before testing or operating system.
  6. Open a valve downstream of filter and turn main line on SLOWLY when turning pressure into filter to avoid a water hammer effect.
  7. Install outside of structures.
  8. Not for use with compressed air or gas.
  9. Thermoplastics decrease in strength when the temperature rises above 73º F, maximum operating temperature should not exceed 120º F.
  10. For culinary water users. Use as a prefilter only, this product is not built, tested or rated for use as a primary filter only on culinary water systems.
