Rated 4 out of 5 by from Connection of the BWT Filter I have connected it just to the existing kitchen tap as opposed to the whole house. I connected the inlet after the existing isolation valve and the outlet to kitchen tap tails. Having contacted the Technical Section of BWT, and read all the reviews. I felt that a female coupler is better than a ¾ inch tap connector, as the coupler will have a longer thread and better connection. I used the supplied nipples they are ¾ inch NPT, I used many winds of PTFE on each side of each of the two nipples. Then a FEMALE COUPLER 15MM X ¾" (38542) However, if you are using it for the whole house and your pipes are 22mm you can use: FEMALE COUPLER 22MM X ¾" (81402) DO NOT FORGET THE ISOLATION VALVE before the filter. However, if you are using it for the whole house you need isolation valves before and after. I can not comment yet on the Performance or Reliability, as I just fitted the kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent filters. Used a good number of these now and generally happy with them. Be aware that the female threads on the housing are tapered and you MUST use tapered thread fittings not standard 3/4 parallel threaded fittings as you will split the brass threaded insert and the filter WILL leak. The plastic male fittings which come with the filter are rubbish, far too brittle to stand anything so i bin them straightaway and get the Pegler 22mmx3/4male fittings that screwfix sell. Also, these filters are only really big enough for low flow systems, trying to run a unvented cylinder etc through one of these isn't going to work. Use for drinking water really.

Replacement Cartridges

Do you sell any replacements such as a 0.1 micron carbon filter for this particular housing? Is it possible to get higher quality filters. Where can I get the NPT to BSP adapters. Can you provide a link or something as it is very hard to find.

in reply to the second part of your question: "Where can I get the NPT to BSP adapters. Can you provide a link or something as it is very hard to find." My answer: I used the supplied nipples they are ¾ inch NPT, I used many winds of PTFE on each side of each of the two nipples. Then a FEMALE COUPLER 15MM X ¾" (38542) to both the inlet and the outlet. However, if you are using it for the whole house and your pipes are 22mm you can use: FEMALE COUPLER 22MM X ¾" (81402) For more details you can read my review dated 31/01/19

My combi boiler serviced just last month has drastically reduced water flow already obviously the boiler filter is again blocked. Is this BWT Kit good for installation before the DHW pipe? THat is can I fit one in the supply pipe?

Asked by: baffledstan

Connecting using 1/4" pipe?

If I wanted to connect only a drinking water tap could I use 1/4" plastic pipe in to and out of the filter (using suitable adapters of course)? Thanks

Mounting

Can filter housing be mounted horizontally? I'm looking to replace the existing system in a camper van.
