The Aqualife TRAVEL mini produces high quality, reverse osmosis water simply and easily. No heavy bottles to lift, no trips to the store, no permanent plumbing connections required. Just connect it to your faucet and begin making sparkling fresh drinking water right away.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality.
Step 1: Remove the old aerator from the kitchen faucet.
Step 2: Install the new aerator. See Fig. 1.
Step 3: Remove and discard the protective cap. While holding down the white lock-ring on the unit, place the top over the end of the new aerator. Release the lock-ring. The unit will clamp into place. See Fig.2. A slight downward tug on the entire assembly will confirm the connection.
Step 4: Remove the small protective cap from the stainless steel tube near the top of the unit and attach the plastic tubing as shown in
Fig. 3. Fresh water will drip from this tube. Collect it by directing the tube into a pitcher or other container. Place the container in the sink to catch any overflow. Fig 4.
Slowly turn on the cold water. Tap water will circulate through the unit. Concentrated salts and impurities exit in a steady stream from the small outlet at the bottom of the unit. Allow this water to go to the drain. For the TRAVEL minito work properly, water should be produced in 0.5 gallon (2 liter) volumes or more.
Turn off the cold water. Allow the unit to drain for 30 seconds. Depress the white lock-ring and
lower the unit away from the faucet. Place the unit in a plastic zipper-lock bag and store it in the refrigerator until next use. Do not allow the unit to freeze. Normal fresh water flow is a drip process. Normal waste water flow is a steady stream. Both may be impaired by a high volume of particulate matter in your tap water.
If your unit develops a leak, check the following:
1. If the unit leaks between the replacement aerator and the quick-connect lock-ring, a poor seal may be the cause. Lubricate the circular black ring in the quick-connect portion of the unit with a very small amount of petroleum jelly.
2. If a leak occurs between the quick-connect and the cap at the top of the plastic pressure vessel, first check to see that the mesh screen located in the cap is properly seated, then hand tighten the cap and pressure vessel.
Important Product Information
1. Use cool water only.
2. First Use - Allow the unit to run for 4 hours before collecting any drinking water. This will allow carbon dust and residue from the sanitizing agent to be rinsed from the unit.
3. Store the TRAVEL miniin the refrigerator. Do not allow the unit to freeze.
4. This reverse osmosis system contains a replaceable treatment component critical for effective reduction of total dissolved solids (TDS). The product water should be tested periodically to verify that the system is performing satisfactorily. With normal use and care, the membrane in this unit will last one year. In order to determine when your unit requires maintenance, Aqualife recommends testing the product water every six months.
The Manufacturers Limited Warranty extends to the original purchaser of the system. This warranty covers all parts and factory labor needed to repair any supplied item that proves to be defective in material, workmanship or factory preparation. The above-mentioned warranty applies for four calendar years from date of purchase. These defective items are subject to the following exclusions: membranes, filters, O-rings, and all other parts or components that require regular replacement as a result of ordinary usage.
Disclaimers This Warranty applies only if the system is installed and used in compliance with the instructions enclosed with the system. The Warranty does not cover any non-TRAVEL miniparts. This Warranty does not cover the costs of repairs or adjustments to the unit that may be needed because of the use of improper parts, equipment or materials. This Warranty does not cover repairs required due to use of non-TRAVEL miniparts, unauthorized alterations of the unit, or failure of a unit caused by such alterations or by unauthorized repairs. The Warranty does not cover malfunctions of the unit due to tampering, misuse, alteration, lack of regular maintenance, misapplication, fouling due to hydrogen sulfide or iron, scaling from excessive hardness, or excessive membrane hydrolysis due to chlorine levels in excess of 1.0 mg/L. In addition, damage to the unit due to fire, accident, negligence, act of God, or events beyond the control of the manufacturer are not covered by this warranty.
Incidental and Consequential Damages The manufacturer does not assume responsibility for payment of incidental and consequential damages as a result of the failure of this unit to comply with express or implied warranties, such as lost time, inconvenience, damage to personal property, loss of revenue, commercial losses, postage, travel, telephone expenditures, or other losses of this nature. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental
or consequential damages, so this exclusion may not apply to you.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities Under the provisions of the Warranty, the owner is expected to schedule annual maintenance: two silver carbon filters and membrane must be replaced every year. Aqualife Inc offers annual maintenance of TRAVEL mini for $149 plus tax.
Neglect, improper maintenance, abuse, or unapproved modifications will invalidate the Warranty. Should your unit develop a defect or otherwise fail to perform in accordance with this warranty, you should contact Aqualife Inc. customer service by phone: (718)-236-7000.
Implied Warranties The implied at-law warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose shall terminate on the date one year after the date of purchase. Note: some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
