Water Filter
21-Jan-2014
By
, Paignton
"I have fitted loads of these.
If you use a JG tap connector (3/4 to 15mm), just reduce the stub with a file by a few millimetres, chamfer a bit and job done.
Plumb Centre have a brass fitting that will go straight into the filter and provide 15mm Comp connection.
Too much fuss being made about the NPT. There are loads of suitable fittings available. SHAME A SUITABLE ONE ISN'T SUPPLIED.
(Hence 3 stars for features)
Regarding filters, I live in a soft water area and change my filter when the taste of the water changes, usually 12 months, however, hard water areas will likely see a MUCH MORE rapid change required. All in all a very good buy

Effective water filter
18-Nov-2012
By
, Doncaster
"Needed a filter to get rid of chemical taste of mains water. This filter works really well. Easy to fit and not too bulky so cupboard under sink remains useful. Cannot yet comment on the life expectancy of the filter, but these are not expensive and are easy to fit."

Does the job
10-Mar-2012
By
, Binfield
"I used a couple of 500mm WRAS 3/4 tap connectors and installation despite the thread differences was easy as pie.
PTFE tape was needed to get a good seal with the filter body.
The hard bit was getting the shelf in and out and dismantling/reassembling all the waste pipes."

Nice solution, easy install
08-Aug-2011
By
, Shropshire
"I've used one of these before and was very happy with it so when I moved house I decided to fit one in the new place.
The last one I installed was a problem to install because of the location and the 3/4" NPT fittings, however, one of the reviews on the site recommended using 3/4" tap connectors and this works a treat!
My second install, using the 3/4" flexi tap connectors (with ball valves fitted, makes changing the filter a drier occupation) went in a dream.
The only thing I would add to Voodooking's review is that if you use tap connectors use 3/4" x 22 mm so that the valve doesn't restrict the flow too much. You can get back down to 15 mm using copper fitting converters (Part number 61906)"

Great Value filter
17-Apr-2009
By
, dudley
"Bought this on price alone after much searching on the web - housing AND cartridge cheaper here than housings alone from other places - (although cartridge is made in taiwan).
Placed it inline on the supply to my electric shower and used 10mm bore flexible connections - no noticeable pressure drop - and the water is noticably better. Smell of chlorides is now gone & eyes don't itch anymore!
Worth noting - the connections are 3/4 NPT which is different to 3/4 BSP. NPT thread is tapered - BSP is NOT so PFTE tape must be used to ensure a seal. 3/4 BSP male will NOT go into this filter housing - I used the connections that came with the filter (3/4 NPT) - and attached 3/4 BSP female flex hose tap connectors. Straight fit - no leaks.
Would recommend this to anyone - professionals AND DIY'ers alike.

Excellent product

"I have installed many of these,very easy to install. (have one in my house) and after a month you notice the results.The water is clearer, softer and odourless to drink.Once you have been drinking water for a while from it , you will notice the difference in taste should you drink tap water...I find ice cubes are more clearer. The filter must be changed every six months.Cheaper than buying bottled water.Different types of filters avalable, to remove the smallest of sediment,chlorine odours,etc,see manufacturers web page.."

Water Filter Installation
10-Aug-2012
By
, Andover
"Appears to be good quality. The use of 3/4 taper fittings is its only fault due to the limited availability of adaptors for this size in the UK. Attached is a picture of my install between a 15mm system to a 1/4 inch drinking tap.
On the output side I had to use 3/4 to 1/2 steel adaptor, a 1/2 to 1/2 brass nipple and a 1/2 to 1/4 pushfit. On he input side I used the same 3/4 to 1/2 adaptor and then used a radiator lockshield valve (as I already had one) and finally a 15mm compression to 1/2 hose connected to the usual 1/2 washing machine valve."

"Straightforward installation, the product provides basic water filtration similar to the usual jug type filters but which is more convenient to use. The manufacture provides a service to remind you when the filter needs changing."

"Our water supply suffers from occasional bouts of bad taste and smell if used for hot drinks. Bought this filter based on the good reviews and advise contained within. I used JG speed fit 3/4 to 15mm hand tight flexy's (80442) that worked a treat. Most importantly the taste and smell of the water has improved and drinking Tea is now the pleasure it should be."

good item

"i was surprised on how easy it was to install after reading previous reviews.
i dont know if i was superstitious or that it actually worked.
the water tasted better but it didnt reduce scale.
it is good price to buy but it gets quite expensive to run if you use the filter often.
catridges need to be changed between 3-6months depending how often you use them."

Semi Straight forward fit
11-Dec-2009
By
, Cambridge
"The installation was not as straight forward as I hoped. The inlet and outlet are NPT fittings which are American, you will find it very hard to get the correct fittings (UK 3/4 are BSP which will not seal against NPT). The solution is to use 3/4 Tap fittings, the rubber washer provides the seal. ( Credit to thevoodoking )
Other than that it was an easy fit.
We hoped that this would help reduce scale but it doesn't. (Note that the description doesn't mention scale, but the similar ones from the same maufacturer do, so we hoped.)
I'd recommend this product if your needing a basic water filter. If you are wanting to reduce scale, look at other options."

"As other reviewers have mentioned, this is a good budget level product, you may consider paying extra for a higher grade which will be more efficient. I have found out that this is designed purely to remove chlorine, poor tastes and odours and does not provide any scale protection."
