Frequently asked questions
How quickly has the PI®-Power Compact to be put into operation after delivery?
How does the PI®-Power Compact operate?
What is so special about the PI®-Technology or rather the PI®-Power Compact?
The PI®-Technology is a patented method for water treatment.
PI®-Power Compact is a four phase system for production of high-grade living drinking water.
„Direct flow“ — what does it mean?
What makes the difference between a “direct flow” reverse osmosis and a conventional revers osmosis system?
|conventional systems||PI®-Power Compact direct flow system|
|slow water purification||fast water purification by a “direct flow” method, watercooled pump hence not thermal issues|
|storage tank necessary||no storage tank needed|
|risk of microbiological contamination||no contamination hazard due automatic rinsing before and after the production as well as every 360 minutes, anti-germ non-return-valve in the drain pipe|
|stagnant water||always a fresh water|
|significant space requirement||compact design|
|performance 0,14 l/min of witch: |
pure water ca.20 %
waste water ca. 80 %
|high performance*: 2,7−4,6 l/min of witch: |
pure water ca. 55%* = 1,5−2,5 l/min
waste water ca. 45%* = 1,25−2,1 l/min
|no ystem- and quality control||electronic quality control (TDS evaluation)|

What sould be done, if the pure water output declines?
At first please observe the issue, because it might be caused by a temperature change of the water. If the water is too cold, the output declines. If the output stays low (approx. 0,5l/min), following causes may apply:
The public water supply can hold during service or floods higher amount of rust, sand or any other kind of dirt. If there is no sieve or filter installed in the household, you may find this at the tap’s aerators. This coarse grime can clog the prefilters and so reduce the flow rate. Are the filters okay, the decline of the pure water output may also signal a necessary replacement of the membranes.
What happens with the packaging?
Please keep it in any case. The manufacturer grants the warranty in the original packaging only.
