Water Filter Kit
It arrived next day and I fitted it in about 15 minutes as the water pipe connectors were the same as my old ones it replaced do to a very leaky tap

15 months old and now it drips
These things are a joke. It's 15 months old and the tap is now dripping. I see that others have had to keep buying replacements on a fairly regular basis. This is unacceptable.
I had a bad experience with this when I first bought the kit and now I'm having more problems so soon.
The product does a very good job at filtering water but I've got to say that I would avoid this product at all costs. There are other kits available from other manufacturers. Very disappointing.
15 months is not an acceptable life for a tap!

Get the correct instructions
Ensure that you download the instruction manual pdf here. The enclosed sheet was for a different version as others commented. However none of the instructions explain the self-piercing tap. I have always avoided these due to plumbers stories of leaks but as the current plumbing is temporary took a chance and it's fine, provided you're not a first timer. Another friend made the same dumb error and was also puzzled as to why there was no flow. Once you have pierced the pipe with the screw in mechanism wind it back out to obtain flow! If it starts leaking gently tweak the grip bolt. Obvious if you look at the mechanism but not if you don't and assume that the flow goes around or through the pin as we did.

Good product, but!
It is easy to install, but remember to make sure you have a back flow control valve installed on the water pipe between the filter. Had to do some plumbing and soldering before the filter instalation..On installing like one purchaser has said buy some ptf tape it will save your frustration in the end as the nylon threads do leak water once tighted and there are no seals to prevent it but the tape fixes that. Overall save money on jug filters and have a better tasting water. Would recommend to anyone.
