I Check with your local public works department for
plumbing codes. You must follow these guidelines as you
install the Water Filtration System.

home COLD water supply only. The filter cartridge will not
purify the water, or make it safe to drink.
I Do not use on a hot water supply (100°F [37.7°C] max.).
I Install or store where it will not be exposed to temperatures
below freezing or exposed to any type of weather. Water
freezing in the system will damage it.

combination. Screw adapter and gasket
onto faucet. Be careful not to cross thread

NOTE: Adapters and gaskets have been included to connect to

in addition to the gasket included with this system. If the adapters
will not connect to your faucet, it is recommended to consult a local
plumbing or hardware store for assistance in obtaining the correct
adapter for your faucet.
