Rated 5 out of 5 by water filter purchased to make up a filter for my steam locos and has done an excellent job 23 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the price I've installed and used more expensive filters but this one beats them all, especially for the price of the replacement cartridges. I've ordered two more, one for my home and one for my father. Once installed you can see and taste the difference instantly. 15 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Water filter Very easy to fit under my sink. Provides filtered water on tap and I've managed to bin the counter to jug and gain some space! Since only filtering one tap I expect to get well over the stated filter life....but not too bothered because replacements are a good price too! 13 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice bit of kit....but Read all the reviews on this product before purchasing. Several customers have made recommendations regarding reducing from 3/4" down to 15mm. The comments made by Kiri from Herfordshire....'On the outlet I fitted a 3/4" to 15mm male coupler (part no. 82086) into the head, using PTFE tape'. THIS DOES NOT WORK! You can only get less than 1/2 turn using that fitting into the threads on this filter, nowhere near enough to make any kind of seal. I got around the reduction by using both the supplied nipples, one side of which is tapered, as are both the inlets. (3/4" NPT). The other is a standard 3/4" thread which will screw into a 3/4" compression female to 15mm tap connector, which I could only source from elswhere. 15mm flexi hose to the inlet side, did the outlet the same. As another customer has commented, this should come with fittings to get you down to 15mm. Bit of a fiddle to get it connected up, but what a difference in the water quality! 31 Jan 2016

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?

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

Answer: 
No. This is a carbon based filter which reduces sediment, bad taste/chlorine, organic chemicals and pesticides.
The High Performance Water Filter Kit (product code 37975) may be a more suitable choice as this reduces sediment, bad taste/chlorine, lead, cysts (down to 1 micron) and pesticides.
