Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective, cheap. These are great basic water filters. They make a noticeable difference to the water, especially here - ours is very hard and also chlorinated. For the price of the unit and the replacement filters, they're great value. I bought this one to replace a very similar one that had decided to leak around the lid after about 8 years in use, so reliability is pretty good too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total rubbish Very disappointed at Screwfix that they stock a product they don't have the correct accessories for. Here I'm taking about the NPT versus the usual BSP thread. I read through the reviews and used 2x Female couplers product number 38542 with a rubber washer and PTFE tape to seal effectively. I still had a leak on one plastic nipple. In terms of performance, maybe my expectations were too high and the smell of chlorine was indeed less but not completely gone. In terms of fitting, the bracket under the kitchen sink is not designed with the installer in mind and very fiddly. Rather than screws, would of been better with an M6 screw. Out of guarantee and now in the bin. Useless. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Found NPT source... UK marine suppliers for people who own American boats. Cheap to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear water Fitted to the kitchen cold tap. I run the tap nice and slow for drinking and normal for other uses. Water is better. Turn water off with cold tap service valve to change the filter when needed. Connected with two flexible connectors.

Is it Auto Shut off when changing the cartridge?

or do i need to install an in line shut off valve?
Asked by: CLB51
This system does not automatically shut off. We would advise to isolate the housing before attempting cartridge changes.

Filter housing O ring?

Is this unit meant to include a filter housing O ring? Have fitted the unit but when the tap is turned on, it overspills at the top? Mainly on the inlet side.
Asked by: Khan79
There should be a large o-ring supplied where the bowl of the housing meets the head of the unit.

Npt coupling alternative

Problems getting round npt to 15mm pipe coupling. Would product 85257 speedfit 3/4 inch tap connector work as an alternative as it has a rubber gasket seal already built in? Thanks R

Tap/Facet

Works we’ll connected to my kitchen tap. Can it be re-plumbed to a separate tap/facet for drinking water only.
