USE AND CARE/INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Faucet Mount Filtration System—GXFM03C and GXFM04FBL
Your new GE faucet mount filter comes complete with all the necessary hardware for most installations. Each filter gives you up to 3 months
of great tasting water. The filter should be changed after 3 months of use or 200 gallons, whichever comes first.
I Check with your local public works department for
plumbing codes. You must follow these guidelines as you
install the Water Filtration System.
I Use the Water Filtration System on a potable, safe-to-drink,
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.
GXFM03C and GXFM04FBL are Tested and Certified by NSF
International against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for the reduction
of Particulate Class 1, Chlorine, Taste and Odor and NSF/ANSI
Standard 53 for Lindane, Atrazine, lead, cyst and turbidity.
SPECIFICATION GUIDELINES
* Filter life varies with local water conditions.

Wash hands. Remove the existing aerator

from the sink faucet. Do not discard gasket;
it may be necessary to use the existing gasket
for the installation of adapters.
Identify the type of threads on the faucet:

I External threads – No adapters should be
required. Proceed to Step 3.
I Internal threads – Use trial and error to
select the proper adapter and washer
combination. Screw adapter and gasket
onto faucet. Be careful not to cross thread
the adapter; tighten manually.
NOTE: Adapters and gaskets have been included to connect to
most faucets. To insure a leak-free seal, you may need to use your
existing gasket (removed during Step 1) from your faucet's aerator
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.
