With the exception of filter changes there is virtually no maintenance.
The prefilters should be changed every 6 months as these protect and prolong the life of the membrane. The post filter should be changed yearly. The membrane life will vary depending on water quality and volume treated. The more work the membrane has to do the shorter its life hence the value of regular prefilter replacement. Membrane expectancy 2 - 5 years.
