Rated 4 out of 5 by Removes a lot of gunk! Have used this in several properties now and does remove a lot of impurities and is normally reddish/brown on the unfiltered side and white on the filtered side. Seems less limescale and nicer tasting water (no need for britta filters anymore) Some small improvements could be: - plastic on the filter to be printed with a "please remove this plastic" a plumber we used left it on despite the instructions saying needs to be removed (we suddenly have better pressure since changing it) as it is easy to miss! - printed on the filter case/clear marks which way to unscrew and which way to tighten - I have printed a label and stuck it on so I don't have to work it out each time. Other than that works like a dream. If they added suggestions above would be 5/5 no probs. Installed using the flex pipes with valves as per a suggestion in someone else's comments for easy replacement and bypass. 19 Sep 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for the job Instantly made the chlorine disappear and the water taste smooth. Remember to give the new filter a good flush prior to using. Simple fitting bracket means this will attach back under your sink with ease. 18 Jul 2016

I have a electric inline hot water system and have some black particles coming from it. Would this product eliminate those black particles and would it also be safe being fitted just after the water heater to feed to the whole house?

Answer: 
The BWT High Capacity Water Filter Kit can only be fitted to cold water lines. It would be recommended to install this onto the cold water mains feed, upstream from the electric inline hot water system.

Answer: 
Please ensure you use 3/4" NPT coupler (not 3/4" BSP). Alternatively, use a rubber gasket in-between nipple and coupler to create a seal.

Answer: 
Yes, as long as the mains water supply parameters fall within the operating specification of the filter. If the pressure and/or flow is outside the specification, the filter may not operate at its most optimal performance.

I need both the sediment and carbon filter (the sediment for point of entry and carbon for point of use for drinking water). Will i have to buy 2 of these to contain the 2 filters i need?
Thanks!

Answer: 
The High Capacity Water Filter kit (16747) is supplied with a 10” housing and carbon block cartridge. The 10” housing supplied is not sold separately so if you were to purchase 2 of these kits please bear in mind you would need to purchase the additional 10" sediment cartridge (product code: 69860) for your specific installation requirements.

i'm needing a filter to cope with 6 bar of water pressure. But eventually i need to know the fittings on the filter so that i can buy other fitting to get me down to 1/2" parker a-lok.

Is it BSP or NTP? thanks
