Rated 1 out of 5 by from Self tapping fitting? Useless I’ve had one of these in my kitchen running faultlessly since 2001 but it finally gave up and needed to be replaced. I called a family friend to fit it (a Corgi registered plumber of many years experience) and, despite fitting many hundreds of appliances and fittings with self-tapping fittings, he found it impossible to install and it has been returned. A 30 minute maximum job kept him here for 3½ hours. Firstly, the lever on the fitting bent almost in half when he exerted force on it (by hand, not with any tools) in an attempt to screw the fitting into the pipe; then he tried to turn the screw-driving mechanism with a spanner and still it wouldn’t pierce the pipe. The pipe now has a few tiny, really shallow dents in it where he attempted to fit it but definitely not any holes. This is a filter tap I’ve recommended to so many people over the years and I’ve no idea where I can get an alternative filter tap that does such a good job for anywhere near this price. I actually bought two of these, one for my Mum as well, but after this they both went back. I’m so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install Very easy to install. You just drill a hole and attach kit to the pipe. Only thing that I do not like is water flow. It is good if you want to fill the cup, but for the kettle it is good 1-2 minutes before it is filled with water. Anyway, I think it is good kit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As fresh as a mountain spring. This is a simple kit to install and gives outstanding value for money, better than anything else I have searched for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Great, good clear tasteless water, easy to fit and much smaller and cheaper than the one that it replaced. I would recommend without reservation.

Can the water filter be attached to an existing washing machine cold water blue cap

If it can what extra kit do I need to purchase, if any
Asked by: mkcottages
We would recommend that the filter is installed using the kit supplied. However, should you wish to install to an existing washing machine blue tap we would recommend to install a non-return valve before the filter and to seek advice from a qualified plumber regarding suitable connections for your specific installation requirements.

Thread Size?

Can you tell me what size the fittings are that attach the flexi pipe to the tap tail and to the saddle clamp please?
Asked by: Jimbo652
The red tubing is 6.3mm (1/4"). The 2m red tubing comes readily attached to the saddle valve. In regards to the tap, the thread of the tap is 7/16". The tubing comes attached to the tap - so the purchase of a connector is not necessary . Kind Regards, Rachel

Fitting to an Existing Tap

Hi, Can this filter kit be used with an existing standard tap? I have a Single Lever/Mixer tap, and want a filter kit that can go under the sink but basically bolt-on. What's best? What additional parts would be required? Thanks, Luke.
Asked by: LukeF
The BWT High Performance Water Filter Kit is supplied with a filter head with 1/4" push-fit connections - for the saddle pierce valve with flexible tube on the inlet, and flexible tube connected to tap supplied, on the outlet. If you do not wish to use the tap supplied with the kit you would need to be able to connect the 1/4" flexible tube from the outlet to your own tap using a suitable connector. This would be 1/4" push-fit to whatever size thread your tap is.

Filter capabilities

Would this filter be suitable for installation after a polyphosphate system? Would it remove the polyphosphate fixed / coated minerals? Thanks.
Asked by: G4George
The BWT High Performance Water Kit is suitable for drinking water. It will not be an effective solution to remove polyphosphate from the water. A polyphosphate dosing system will dose food grade polyphosphate into your water. Although this is safe to drink, people with a sensitive palate may detect a slight taste in the water. Therefore, it would be recommended to install this after your drinking water supply to offer whole house protection or install to protect a single appliance. If you wish to remove scale from your drinking water then we could recommend to use the BWT Water Filter Kit (product code: 14306). This drinking water filter kit reduces chlorine, unpleasant taste & odour, scale and scum.
