The factory default setting is for the unit to work with a water filter installed. If you choose to use steam process distilled water instead of tap water, you can install the Water ByPass Cartridge (SCWFBP) and set up the unit to work accordingly.
To set up the unit to work with the Water ByPass Cartridge, follow these steps:
1. Remove the water reservoir and water filter as described previously and replace with the Water ByPass Cartridge.
2. Enter the User Menu (see section 3.4) and select the WATER FILTER option when it is displayed on the first line.
3. Using the (down) & (up) buttons, choose NOT INSTALLED, then press .
4. Exit the user menu by pressing .

STATIM 7000 Water Filter Cartridge

Maintaining Fluid Levels

Unless you are using the SciCan Water Filter (SCWF1 Water Filter Cartridge), that allows the use of tap water[NO LONGER AVAILABLE], you should only use steam-process distilled water containing less than 5 ppm total dissolved solids (having conductivity of less than 10 μS / cm) in the Statim. Each time you refill the reservoir, empty the waste bottle. Empty the waste bottle often to avoid unpleasant odors and discoloration of the contents. (A low-level chlorine-free disinfectant, prepared according to the manufacturer’s instructions, may be added to the waste bottle to remedy this situation). The condenser bottle should be cleaned and refilled to the MAX line on a weekly basis.

Changing The Water Filter

If you are using the SciCan Water Filter, it will need to be changed regularly to ensure clean water is entering the internal components of the unit. When the water filter cartridge is close to being exhausted, a message will be displayed when a cycle is selected and an audible tone reminds you to order or replace the filter. This message will appear for approximately two seconds and then disappear, and then the chosen cycle will start. This message will continue to appear every time a cycle is chosen until the water filter is replaced with a new filter. If the filter is not replaced and has been 100% used, the unit will not operate until a new filter is installed.The water filter has a shelf life and should be used prior to the expiry date inscribed on each filter.

When installed, the water filter has a maximum life of 60 days, depending on the quality of the tap water. The unit will notify you prior to the expiry or exhaustion of the filter.

The water filter can be found under the removable water reservoir.

To replace this filter, follow these steps:

  1. Press the STOP button twice.
  2. Remove the water reservoir.
  3. Remove the used water filter and discard.
  4. Remove the water filter from its packaging.
  5. Insert the new water filter. The water filter should be placed flat on the bottom, with the tabs on the water filter facing upwards, and then pushed inward until the filter is fully seated along the bottom of the unit.
  6. Replace the water reservoir.

At the beginning of the next cycle, the unit will prepare the new filter for about 2 minutes and display the message PLEASE WAIT.

The factory default setting is for the unit to work with a water filter installed. If you choose to use steam process distilled water instead of tap water, you can install the Water ByPass Cartridge (SCWFBP) and set up the unit to work accordingly.

To set up the unit to work with the Water ByPass Cartridge, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the water reservoir and water filter as described previously and replace with the Water ByPass Cartridge.
  2. Enter the User Menu (see section 3.4 of your manual) and select the WATER FILTER option when it is displayed on the first line.
