Fitting Instructions
Detailed information on the removal
and re-installation of the filters is
supplied with your filter housing,
however changing the filter cartridge is
a simple matter:
1. Shut off the main water supply,
and turn the filtered drinking water
faucet to the ‘on’ position, to
release any pressure remaining in
the system.
2. Position a suitable container
beneath the housing to catch any
residual water. Unscrew the filter
body from the cap, empty the
water into the container and place
the body to one side.
3. Unscrew the old filter cartridge
from the cap, wrap in a plastic bag
or newspaper and discard with
your househo

cartridge with clean water before
screwing the cartridge into the cap.
DO NOT use any greases or
solvents containing
hydrocarbons to lubricate the
threads or seals on the unit.
Also avoid the use of strong
detergents or oxidising agents
when cleaning the housing.

made of ceramic and therefore
fragile and can easily be damaged
if not handled carefully. Care
should be taken when screwing
the cartridge into the housing cap.

overtighten the cartridge.

into the filter cap and wipe
the housing clean with a

When Leaving on Vacation
and to Winterize the Unit

for extended periods, or the filter
housing may be subject to the risk
of freezing, carry out stages 1,2
and 5. When the risk of freezing
subsides and you wish to use the
system again, turn the faucet on.
Gradually introduce the main
water supply until the flow from
the tap has stabilized. Run the
filtered water for 10 minutes to
flush the system and check
carefully for leaks. The system
should now be ready for use.
Allowing the unit to freeze will
