Graham-Stetzer Filter Installation Instructions
Graham-Stetzer Filters are very easy to install on your own. Follow these instructions to maximize filter effectiveness.
Note: Many homes may not have enough open outlets to install the number of filters needed to clean up the home. Purchase several power strips, plug your electronic devices into them, and install filters in the power strips as per the instructions below.
1. One filter should be installed in power strips where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Hair Dryer
2. Two filters should be installed in power strips where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Personal Computer
- Laptop Computer
- Inkjet Printer
- Fax Machine
- Personal/Home Office Copier
- Entertainment Center (TV, VCR, DVD, Stereo, etc.)
3. Three filters should be installed in power strips where each of the following electronic devices is located:
- Laser Printer
- Large Office Copier
4. One filter should be installed in an outlet on each wall of the rooms you spend the most time in, especially bedrooms. Other rooms where this should be done may include living room, kitchen, den, etc.
5. Two phases of current are used to supply utility power to your home; A phase and B phase. One filter should be installed in an outlet on each phase of current as close as possible to the main electrical panel in your home. Most homes will have one electrical outlet dropped down directly from the main panel; installing a filter in this outlet will take care of one current phase. For maximum effectiveness, call your local electrician and have him/her drop another outlet down from the panel on the other phase, then install a filter in that outlet as well.
When these directions are followed, a sufficient number of Graham-Stetzer Filters should be installed to effectively clean up the average home.
