Tools and Parts Needed:
Gather the required tools before starting installation. Read and
follow the instructions provided with any tools listed here.
• Philips Head Screwdriver
• Utility Knife or Tub
• Adjustable Wrench
Cutter for copper piping
• Teflon® Tape
Installation Requirements:
• Properly tighten all fittings to ensure a leak-free assembly.
• Install in a location that is not susceptible to freezing
temperatures as damage to the housing could occur.
• Install away from direct sunlight as prolonged exposure to light
can weaken plastic components.
• Some local codes may require the use of a licensed plumber or
certified installer when disrupting a potable water line.
Determine and follow any and all local codes and requirements.
• Allow room to operate housing wrench and a minimum of 2 1/2"
(6,35 cm) clear space below the unit to facilitate changing of the
filter.
This filter can be used at any sink where water is used for drinking.
Installation Instructions
For Use With Cold Water Only
NOTE: Remove items from under the sink. Place a catch basin
there to collect small amounts of water that may run out when
disconnecting water supply lines.
1. Turn off cold water supply valve and remove existing fitting
and/or tubing from cold water side of faucet.
2. Loosely assemble sump to filter head and attach filter bracket.
Use this assembly to mark a location under the sink that is not in
the way but allows for easy access to change filter. Allow room to
operate housing wrench and a minimum of 2 1/2" (6,35 cm) clear
8

space below the unit to facilitate changing cartridge. Once this is
done disassemble components for installation.
3. Determine length of tubing required from filter
head/bracket to faucet and from water supply
line to filter head/bracket by holding tubing in
place ensuring it is of appropriate length. Do not
kink tubing as this will impede water flow. If
necessary, loop tubing around to avoid it being
kinked.
Cut tubing straight with a utility knife or tube
cutter (for copper piping). (See Figure 1.)
4. Install faucet adapter fitting to faucet (see
Figure 2). Do not overtighten to prevent damage
to fitting. Referring to section "Using Push-In
Fittings", insert a section of plastic tubing into
fitting, making sure end of tubing is firmly
seated to backstop.
5. Install 3/8" (0,95 cm) x 1/2"
(1,27cm) pipe adapter onto 1/2" (1,27
cm) water supply outlet. Do not
overtighten to prevent damage to
fitting. Referring to section "Using
Push-In Fittings", insert the other end
of the plastic tubing from step 4 into
fitting, making sure end of tubing is
firmly seated to backstop.
6. Wrap Teflon® tape (2 1/2
wraps) around the 3/8" (0,95
cm) fitting in a clockwise
direction and fasten to filter
head (see Figure 4). Do not
use pipe sealant (dope), as
solvents in some types of pipe
dope may cause damage to
plastic fittings.
7. Insert water supply line to
port marked "IN" (see Figure
5, A) and insert faucet line to
port marked "OUT" (see
Figure 5, B). Referring to
section "Using Push-in
Fittings," insert plastic tubing
into fittings, making sure end
of tubing is firmly seated to
backstop.
8. Fasten bracket to filter head with
four Phillips head screws provided.
(See Figure 6). Fasten bracket to
wall with four Phillips head screws
provided. If pre-drilling holes,
bracket maybe used as a template
for making screw hole locations.
9. Lubricate housing o-ring with water.
10. Place filter into housing.
(See Figure 7). Align housing to filter
head and screw onto filter head.
Tighten with wrench to seal.
11. Slowly turn water supply on while depressing red air release
button on filter head and check for leaks. Then run water for 5
minutes with an open faucet to flush out air.
