Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I prepare the nano filter?
A: When you receive the product and before you use the nano-filter (part #5), you need to remove it from the separate plastic container and insert it inside the Alkamug. Install the filter by inserting and slightly pressing on it’s top until you hear a click. The full depth of the Alkamug is 6 inches and the mug changes diameter 2 inches from the bottom. The small metal holders on the sides of the filter will securely hold the filter in place. You can use any non-sharp object to securely fix the filter in the optimal position inside the mug. Again, you will hear a click to know it is in position.
If you purchase the optional small filter (#6), it needs to be inserted into the larger (#5) filter. After you put them together, you can go ahead and insert both of them as one unit into the Alkamug as was previously explained. It’s important to check the mug when you are pouring water, to make sure the filter is properly in place.

1- Reverse Osmosis Filtration
