Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value water filter Bought this to replace another well known brand water filter. Water quality is as good if not better than before and cartridges are significantly cheaper to replace

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peckham Spring Water I bought one of these based on the reviews and pleased that I did. After flushing through it made an instant difference to the quality of my tap water. I have used it just on the kitchen tap as opposed to the whole house. My old sink and tap is still in place at the moment so I was able to compare the difference... It works. After reading all the reviews, my only complaint is that the connections should be moe simple or at least supplied in the pack. The NPT fittings are hard to get around here so I used BSPs with five winds of PTFE and double fibre washers in each side which has worked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What you really need to know I purchased one of these filters and discovered that fitting it into the system was difficult.The thread used for coupling is NPT and needs converting, If you use the female coupler FEMALE COUPLER 22MM X ¾" (81402) from screwfix with PTFE tape you will successfully have converted the inlet/outlet to 22mm piping and is easy to connect to the water system.

How often should the filter be changed in a 1 person household (supplying only drinking water)

Asked by: waterboy2
We advise the cartridge is replaced between 3 - 6 months. This can vary with the quality of the incoming water and volume of water used. As the cartridge nears its full capacity of 9000L some bad taste will begin to reappear - at this time the cartridge should be replaced.

Connectors

Will I be able to use flexible tap connectors to fit directly to kitchen cold tap
Asked by: Pappygrandad
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. Please note the connections for this housing at 3/4" NPT.

Water taste

Will this remove a strong mineral taste from water? Is it worth fitting the sediment filter as well?
Asked by: Pappygrandad
This system helps with removing sediment down to 10 microns and will also reduce bad taste and odours.

Can you recommend a fitting to get from 3/4" NPT to 15mm?

All the adaptor couplings I have seen are BSP. I know they are very similar, but I am concerned with the different thread angle it could leak.
Asked by: SteveG81
Product 38542 is a 3/4"-15mm coupler. However, please ensure you use 3/4" NPT coupler (not 3/4" BSP). We would advise that alternatively, you can use a rubber gasket in-between the nipple and coupler to create a seal.
