Preventive Maintenance for any Consumer Durable
Preventive maintenance (PM) has the following meanings:
1. The care and servicing by personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment and facilities in
satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection, and correction
of incipient failures either before they occur or before they develop into major defects.
2. Maintenance, including tests, measurements, adjustments, and parts replacement, performed
specifically to prevent faults from occurring

The primary goal of maintenance is to avoid or mitigate the consequences of failure of equipment. It is
designed to preserve and restore equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they
actually fail. Preventive maintenance activities include partial or complete overhauls at specified
periods, oil changes, lubrication and so on.

Let us see the Preventive Maintenance for Eureka Forbes, Aquaguard, Enhance product.

While the water is completely purified after the above 3 stages, Aquaguard has one more benefit. A
unique Intelligent Purity Sensor. This electronic eye monitors the purification process and stops the flow
of water immediately, if the level of purification is not 100%. This method follows Preventive Poka Yoke.

Maintaining your Aquaguard Total Classic

Tips for a long relationship with your Aquaguard Total Classic
1. The key work is cleanliness
Keep the area around your Aquaguard Total Classic clean and dry. Keep the spout clean and close it with
the cap provided.
2. Keep the Sediment Filter clean
To ensure that it works well, have it thoroughly cleaned by a Eureka Forbes service technician during
every routine service.

Figure 1: Know your Aquaguard

3. Activated Carbon
To ensure that the Activated Carbon works effectively, insist on having it thoroughly cleaned during
every service.
4. Back flush the Sediment Filter

 Disconnect the EVA tubes from the inlet and outlet of the pre-filter
 Connect the tube from the tap to the outlet nozzle
 Leave the other nozzle of the pre-filter open
 Turn the tap on to maximum pressure and let the water flow for about 10 minutes
 Reconnect the inlet and outlet nozzle as before. Do not interchange the inlet and outlet of
the pre-filter as the candle may get clogged

Maintenance of Aquaguard Total Classic

 Do not place any heavy or sharp objects on the purifier
 Ensure replacement of Clarity Cartridge and membrane after approximately 6,000 litres of water
 Ensure replacement of Taste Enhancer Cartridge after approximately 12,000 litres of water usage
 Ensure that the water valves are cleaned thoroughly by a trained Eureka Forbes Service
 Replacement should be done by a trained Eureka Forbes Technician
Important Suggestions
1. Please do this

 When your Aquaguard is not in use, please keep the outlet spout covered with the cap
 Switch off the main switch when your Aquaguard will not be used for more than 3-4 hours
 Store water from your Aquaguard in clean containers. For hygienic reasons it is preferable not to
store water for more than 2 days
 We recommend routine check-ups of your Aquaguard at least once in 6 months.
 If your Aquaguard has not been used for a long time, allow 2-3 glasses of water to flow out
before collecting the water for use

2. Please do not do this

 Spill water on any panel of your Aquaguard as this may lead to electric shock
 Store water from your Aquaguard in matkas and candle filters, as the water can get
 Connect ordinary pipes, tubing to the outlet spout to collect water from your Aquaguard
 Use an extension box for power connection
 Connect hot water supply
 Install your Aquaguard close to a gas stove or cooking range

The Eureka Forbes Technician should be called every six months for servicing the Aquaguard. At that
time he will check the filters. If the filter is too dark, which means the water is very dirty; you will need
to change the filters. Eureka Forbes Technician will clean the filters as well. If your water is pretty clean,
then changing the filters once a year is also fine. Most importantly change filters whenever you find
them too dirty which means they are not able to filter water well.
