How often should I replace the filter and cell?

Each Pre-Filter (R0001) can be used for up to 6 months.

The Photon™ series has a pre-filter that is designed to protect the unit from dust and large particulate matter. We recommend changing/ washing the pre-filter every 6 months. The Photon™ series has indicator lights that will automatically notify you when to change the pre-filter.
  • NOTEIf you have a dusty indoor environment or own a pet that sheds a lot, we strongly recommend you check the pre-filter monthly to ensure proper airflow through our catalyst.
