When do CELdek ® Pads need to be replaced?
This is a common question and yet there is no simple answer. CELdek ® pads are actually more like wet filters because they filter dust and soluble gasses from the air. With the water running over the cross corrugated channels makes the CELdek ® pads self cleaning. It typically lasts much longer than air filters, but eventually, will need to be replaced. It is important to learn to predict and plan replacement in advance so that it can be scheduled at a convenient time.
