Next, fill the upper chamber with water and add up to 1/2 teaspoon of red food colouring. - Please note, It's enough to add 3-5 drops.
(see photos below of the red colour water.
Do not add all the bottle.
Only 3-5 drops max.
After 5-10 minutes, look to see if any of the water in the glasses are red or pink.
Water should come out clear and if there is a red or pink colour in the water then please check if the filters are installed correctly or washers positioned correctly or if the wing nuts are loose and then make a new test. Also make sure the filters are primed correctly - Please see our priming and cleaning videos under our FAQ page and YouTube. - Filters needs to be cleaned and primed every 12 months
