Photon®  Pre-Filter

  • NOTE:  If you have a dusty indoor environment or own a pet that sheds a lot, we strongly recommend you check the Photon®  pre-filter monthly to ensure proper airflow through our catalyst.

How and when to clean or replace the Photon® Pre-Filter.

Each Puraclenz Photon® model comes with 2 pre-filters. The Photon® Pre-Filter is designed to protect the unit's cell from dust and large particulate matter so that it functions properly. Each Pre-Filter (R0001) can be used for up to 6 months before it needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The length of time you can run your Puraclenz Photon® model before cleaning the pre-filter depends on how dusty your environment is. We recommend changing/ washing the pre-filter at least every 6 months, more often if your indoor environment is dusty or if you have shedding pets.

It's important to keep your pre-filter dust-free. You can clean your pre-filter by removing it from the unit and gently tapping it upside down into a trash receptacle. You can also run cool tap water through the filter so that the dust is cleared.

The Recharge Cell®

The Recharge Cell® runs for 2 years before it needs to be replaced. This duration assumes that the cell is in continuous use 24/7.
