How To Clean and Maintain Your Water Purifier

To ensure you keep getting clean and safe drinking water, it is important to clean and maintain your water purifier. Without proper maintenance and care, the water purifier will not function properly, and you may end up needing to spend and replace your water purifier. Here are some useful tips on how you can maintain and clean your water purifier for effective, trouble-free and long-lasting operations.


Outer Surface of your water purifier – To effectively clean the outer surface of your water purifier, use a dry cloth to clean. Do not clean aggressively or rub the surface as it might lead to scratches on the water purifier. Clean off any stains on the surface regularly to prevent any discolouration.

Remove and clean nozzle – For those water purifiers that are equipped with a detachable nozzle, remove them regularly and wash them to ensure that harmful contaminants and bacteria does not stay on them.

Clear any water in drip tray daily – Any water in your water purifier’s drip tray if left untouched for long will turn into stagnant water. These water provides the perfect breeding ground for health hazards such as bacteria and mosquitoes. Clear away any water in your drip tray every day to avoid these risks!


Change your filters promptly – The most essential aspect is to change your filters in your water purifier as and when they are due for replacement to ensure the cleanest of water possible for you and your family. If you are using the Ruhens V Series, which has a filter indicator, look out for the indicator lights blinking. And if you are using a Ruhens model that does not come with an indicator, feel free to reach out to our service team to understand more about the filter replacement cycle.

Drain storage tanks – Drain the water in your storage tank if your water purifier is not used for more than 5 days.

Other Important Things To Keep In Mind

Maintain good hygiene around your water purifier – Ensure the area around your water purifier is free of insects and other pests to prevent them from touching the water purifier. If it’s on a tabletop, clean the table regularly and ensure the table is always dry.

Check for drips and leakages – Get professional help as soon as you notice any drips or leakages around your water purifier. If you notice any leakages for your Ruhens water purifier, please contact our customer service team immediately and we will schedule a detailed check for your machine.

For those with the V Series, filters are self-changeable and the steps are really easy. For those with Ruhens models that are not self-changeable, don’t worry, our professional customer service team will call you up to arrange a filter replacement appointment at the time of your convenience.

It is recommended to take these necessary steps to care and maintain your water purifier. You just have to simply follow these tips to keep your water purifier working in tip-top condition! If there are any issues with your Ruhens water purifier, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
