Your questions answered
Q. How is the filter tap system installed? Will I need a plumber?
A. Installing the FreshWater's 1000 filter tap system is simple and straightforward. There is no need to cut pipework and simple push-fit connections make the procedure quick and easy. However, if you are not competent at DIY we recommend that you arrange for a qualified plumber to fit your system
Q. How often will I need to replace the filter tap's cartridge?
A. We recommend that you change your filter tap's filter cartridge every 6 months. Register on our cartridge replacement direct debit scheme and leave us to make sure you receive your replacement cartridge on time every time.
Q. How much filtered water will one filter cartridge give me?
A. Typically 3000- 4000 litres, but this is by no means guaranteed and is dependant on the quality of the water and the amount used. For example, if your system contains higher than average levels of sediment, the water filter cartridge may need replacing sooner. This will be obvious as the water flow from the tap visibly slows.
Q. How much space does the filter tap system 's cartridge housing take up under the sink?
A. The filter cartridge and its housing is very compact - approximately 30cm high. It will fit neatly into a standard kitchen base unit and still leaves plenty of space!
