  1. 1. Drinking Water Filter System PROaqua 4200 - The multi-barrier-system - Operating Manual made in Englisch GermanyStand 06/2012 - PROVITEC
  2. 2. Dear Customer!Thank your for purchasing the PROaqua 4200 drinking water filter! Its uniquemulti-barrier-system has been developed to filter out all kinds of pollutants foundin drinking water.Your PROaqua 4200 water filter has been individually put together to suit yourspecial needs and takes the pollutants of your specific drinking water intoaccount. Through this procedure the best possible purification is achieved.In order to find the optimal combination of filter media for your household, we havetaken the quality of your drinking water into account as well as the amount of wateryou consume per day. PROVITEC will register the profile of your water filter andprovide constant service if required. This guarantees the best performance ofyour PROaqua 4200 now and in the future!It is important that you take time to study this guide as it contains essential infor-mation to ensure the trouble-free use of your PROaqua 4200. Follow theinstructions and your filter will produce pure and safe water for years. If you haveany further questions, do not hesitate to contact either your PROVITEC dealer orPROVITEC directly. PROVITEC Your PROVITEC Team Trinkwasseraufbereitungs- technologie GmbH
  3. 3. VII: Notes: Attention! Please read instruction manual carefully! 1. PROVITEC - Installation of Drinking Water Filter after following technical instruction – without membrane filter ! 2. PROVITEC - Run Drinking Water Filter at least 5 minutes without membrane filter 3. Install membrane filter, then run PROVITEC Drinking Water Filter for further 5 minutes. Attention! Don`t install filter system on a pressureless hot water tank. page 29 page 2
  4. 4. Generall Instructions for first start-up VII: Notizen:The Provitec drink water filter system has been developed to removedifferent types of pollutions which may be present in drinking water.Please read some special instructions regarding “lime”:Lime filtration:All the lime solved in the drinking water, consists of Calcium- and Magne-sium ions. Nutritionally, lime has positive effects on the human body.The consumption quantity of Calcium and Magnesium as food fromdrinking water to supply the human organisms is low.Lime is a very dominant flavor carrier in drinking water. Higher limeconcentration is tasted as “full flavoured”. Low lime concentration istasted as “soft”.Drinking water with allmost no lime concentration or without lime tastedslightly bitter.After filtering lime from hard water you can taste changes. You will getsame experience when you try coffee without sugar, it`s different.The human taste sense will adjust pretty fast to the new taste of lime freewater.From a total hardness starting 8 – 10°dH, lime will precipitate on tempe-ratures above 45°C and calcify technical devices, pipes, etc.Drinking water with hardness below 7-8°dH is stable and will not precipi-tate, even on higher temperatures.The Provitec drink water filter system ProAqua 4200 can, depending onthe configuration, be established with an ion-exchanger for total orpartial removing of lime.At the first start-up of the Provitec drinking water filter system, moremineral salts will be submitted as “lime”-ions absorbed. This positiveeffect increases the amount of mineral salts in the drinking water, whichtemporary results in higher pH-levels (alkaline water). This alkalinewater sometimes tastes different, somestime like earthy, sometimesfloury, etc.Permanent drinking of alkaline water is as problematical as acid water(e.g. demineralized water).At the end of the start-up phase ( 2 to 3 weeks ) a neutral ion exchangeand a neutral pH-level of the drinking water will be reestablished - perma-nent. page 3 page 28

  9. 9. VI: Warranty: I: Installation: A: How to install the fittings:PROVITEC grants a 2 year warranty for PROaqua 4200. This includes the casing and See diagram 1 - Installation of the tap:the free replacement of all parts that are not worn out or used up. First select the desired position of the tap on a flat part of the sink. Using carbide drill bits, commence drilling: first, use a 5 mm drill bit to make a pilot hole. AfterParts subject to getting worn out or used up are for example: drilling the pilot hole, make it lager by using a 12 mm drill bit. all filter media: activated carbon, ion exchange resin (nitrate resin, “lime” resin), Then install and secure the tap. Please adhere to the order of parts as depicted in diagram 1! REDOX-granules, dolomite rock bacteria filter See diagram 2 - Position of the shut-off valve: filter fleece, salt tablets If the handle of the shut-off valve is at a right angle with the tube, the valve is closed valves, ports, connecting pieces, pressure regulator etc. If the handle of the shut-off valve is parallel to the tube, the valve is open. See diagram 3 - Installation of shut-off valve into a stiff chromed copper pipe: PROaqua 4200 is always connected to the cold water supply line.Please find in this operating manual a guarantee certificate. Fill in the certificate (your Shut the angle valve.name, address etc.) and send it to us. We can only grant the warranty if you have Select the position of the shut-off valve. The cold water supply line is usually situated on theregistered shortly after buying your water filter. right but check this before installing the shut-off valve. Cut out about 20 mm (0,78 inches) of the chromed copper pipe. Put the union nut and the cutting ring on the chromed copper pipe. Watch the order of the parts! The cutting ring always points into the direction of the union nut. Put both ends of the chromed copper pipe into the T-piece and tighten the union cap. You have to insert at least 5 mm of each pipe end into the T-piece.ATTENTION: Tighten both union nuts again. Check for leaks after opening the angle valve.PROaqua 4200, its cartridges, accessories and the fittings form an integrated whole. If See diagram 4 - Installation of the shut-off valve into a flexible pipe:the filter is changed by installing spare parts of other manufacturers or using PROaqua 4200 is always connected to the cold water supply line.cartridges not provided by PROVITEC, the warranty does no longer apply.

If you need to change the operating pressure, please ask us for assistance. Remove the union nut and the cutting ring from the T-piece.Otherwise we can not guarantee for any damages or loss of performance. Put the union nut and the cutting ring on the piece of chromed copper pipe. Watch the order of the parts! Put the chromed copper pipe into the T-piece and into the angle valve and tighten the union cap. You have to insert at least 5 mm of the pipe end into the T-piece and the angle valve respectively.
