Description

The eSpring® UV Water Purifier improves the taste, odor, and clarity of up to 5,000 litres of water, enough for a family of six to drink and cook with for one year.* Rigorous testing has shown that the carbon-block filter effectively reduces more than 140 potential health-effect impurities – like pesticides, VOCs, mercury, and lead – yet allows beneficial minerals like calcium and magnesium to pass through. The UV bulb destroys up to 99.9999% of bacteria, 99.99% of viruses, and 99.95% of cysts in drinking water without the use of chemicals.

The eSpring Water Purifier is certified by NSF International (NSF/ANSI Standards 42, 53, 55B and 401) and has earned the Gold Seal from the Water Quality Association.
*Actual filter life depends on usage and water quality.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I connect my Below Counter eSpring® UV Water Purifier (10-0189) to my refrigerator’s ice maker?
Yes. You’ll need to purchase the Single Line Faucet / Ice Maker Conversion Kit (10-1398). This kit includes a pressure regulator and all the fittings you’ll need to connect your eSpring® UV Water Purifier to your refrigerator’s ice maker, except for pressurized 1/4 inch (6 mm) OD tubing, available from almost any local plumbing supply or hardware store. Be sure to use tubing that is certified for use in drinking water applications and follow the instructions in the Owner’s Manual.

Can I still continue to use the unit without changing the filter when I’m supposed to?
It is not recommended. The filter life is determined based on performance testing. Failure to maintain the unit as recommended may impair the performance.

Can water damage the UV bulb?
No, the UV bulb is completely sealed in a quartz sleeve within the carbon block and is not directly in contact with the water. It uses a wireless (inductive coupled) connection to power the lamp, much like the recharging unit for an electric toothbrush. An added feature users will appreciate: The light comes on only when water is flowing through the unit, so the treated water is not warmed by the light.

Can ultraviolet light make the water radioactive?
No. While the water in the eSpring® UV Water Purifier is exposed to ultraviolet light, ultraviolet light is not radioactive. Therefore, it is impossible for the water to become radioactive.

Does the eSpring® unit change the taste of water?
The taste of water depends on what’s in the water. The eSpring® UV Water Purifier will effectively reduce many impurities, like chlorine, that affect taste and odor, and will improve the clarity of water.

Where is the eSpring® unit installed?
It is installed under the sink and connected to a dedicated faucet.

I’m not mechanically inclined, so I’m not sure I could install the unit myself. How difficult is installation?
The Below Counter model has a dedicated faucet that you can insert into any available opening in your sink, such as an opening for a soap dispenser. Installation may require a plumber as you need a connection to your cold water pipe under the sink. It also requires an outlet with continuous power.

How will I know when it’s time to change the filter?
You’ll know just by looking at the LED display on the unit. It shows you at a glance the filter’s remaining life on an indicator that resembles a gas gauge on a car. When it’s time to change, the unit beeps and the display flashes “replace cartridge.”

Is it hard to change?
No. The patented, easily replaceable eSpring® replacement cartridge screws in like a lightbulb and lasts for up to 5,000 litres or one year, whichever comes first.* And the eSpring® unit monitor automatically resets itself when the filter is replaced. It’s simple.
*Actual filter life depends on usage and water quality.

I have the Ice Maker Hookup Kit attached to my Below Counter eSpring® unit. How do I flush my new filter after a change with this setup?
You will first need to disconnect the line from the refrigerator at the tee. Then, flush your cartridge into a bucket, as outlined in the instruction manual, before reconnecting.

Does the eSpring® UV Water Purifier reduce pharmaceutical by-products?

  • Atenolol.
  • Ethinyl Estradiol (17-alpha ethynyl estradiol) or EE2.
