Regular maintenance of the filtration system is recommended to ensure maximum performance of your central vacuum. For models of the DL series, the Information Center will indicate when to empty the canister and clean the filters. These indications are provided by an electronic timing board, only as a reference guide.
Your central vacuum is equipped with two filters. The anti-clogging filter (thin fabric) stops the larger particles, and the Cyclofiltre (thick fabric) catches the microscopic particles. The Cyclofiltre is equipped with an antimicrobial treatment to prevent the growth of mold, fungus and bacteria. This filter is washable in cold water (no bleach) and can be dried at low temperature.
1. To remove the filters, first remove the dust receptacle.
2. Then, use the straps at the base of the filters to withdraw. We recommend cleaning the anti-clogging filter (thin fabric) every time the dust receptacle is emptied. You may either shake it out, or rinse it. The Cyclofiltre (thick fabric) should be cleaned after four anticlogging filter cleanings, or approximately once a year.
3. Both filters must be completely dry before they are reinstalled. Carefully install them in the support grooves on the filter frame to ensure adequate protection of the motor. Install the Cyclofiltre (thick fabric) first, and the anticlogging filter (thin fabric) over.
Inspect the filters for tears and punctures before reinstalling them. Do not reinstall damaged filters.
