Alps Water Filter Unit 12L


ALPS is a natural gravity fed water filtration system that is designed to remove all types of contaminants in tap water via a ten stage filtration process

Stage 1:Ceramic Dome: (Replace every 6 to 9 months) 

Immerse/soak in water at least ten minutes, which rids the dome of any dust particles from the manufacturing process and primes it for use. Assemble ceramic dome via butterfly nut & washer, onto the smaller (top) container as illustrated re (SPL-2/3). Gently remove and gently clean the dome periodically with a soft toothbrush/fabric under running water, especially if/when residue forms on the dome surface.

Stage 2 to 7: 6 layer Cartridge: (Replace every 6 to 9 months)

Immerse/soak in water for at least two hours – this rids the cartridge of any dust particles from the manufacturing process and primes it for use. After soaking the 6-stage filter cartridge, place it under running water and then give it a good shake. This will remove any air pockets and give you a good flow. (Repeat this process if ever you find your unit’s water flow is slowing down). Screw cartridge onto threaded plate (SPL-4) and place onto lower/bottom water tank cover (SPL-6). Flush/backwash the cartridge every 2-3 months under running water.

Stage 8: Mineral Stones: (8th stage – Replace every 12 – 18 months)

Place mineral stones in boiling water for 5 minutes, then place outdoors to dry naturally. Spread them evenly to cover the surface area on the bottom of the lower tank (SPL-8). Repeat this process every 6 months for optimum mineral replacement.

Stage 9: Magnetic Tap:

Attach to outlet on lower/bottom water tank making sure that one washer is fixed internally and the other externally. Please do not use excessive force when installing and or using the tap.


Rinse Prill Bags under running water for 2-3 minutes. Place Prill Bags on top of stones on either side of the tank. DO NOT take Prill Beads out of the bags.
