Thank you for your purchase of a state of the art
Watts Premier Water Treatment system.
WP-1 LCV Water Treatment System:
Watts Premier WP-1 LCV water treatment system contains a heavy duty lead, cyst
and VOC filter block. This specialty formulated block is capable of reducing lead,
cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba as well as harmful Volatile Organic Chemicals
(See performance data sheet for complete list of VOC’s). It is estimated that VOC’s are
present in one-fifth of the nation’s water supplies. These water contaminants can enter
ground water from a variety of sources including localized use of herbicides and pesticides,
gasoline or oil spills, leaking underground fuel tanks, septic system cleaners, and chemicals
used in the dry-cleaning industry. See performance data sheet for individual contaminants
and reduction performance.
System Maintenance
Just because you can not taste it, does not mean that it is not there. Many contaminants in
the drinking water are undetectable to the taste. Additionally, over time if you do not replace
the filter element, other bad tastes and odors will be apparent in your drinking water. This
is why it is important to change out your filter at the recommended intervals as indicated in
this system manual. When replacing any of the filter elements, pay special attention to any
cleaning instructions. Should you have any further questions please refer to our website at
www.wattspremier.com or call our customer service dept. at 1-800-752-5582.

Tools Recommended For Installation
√ A small knife
√ Variable Speed drill
√ 1/8” (3mm), 1/4” (6.4 mm) and 7/16” (11.0mm) Drill bits
√ 1/2” and 5/8” open-end wrenches (or adjustable Wrenches)
√ Phillips screwdriver
Installation
This system has been designed to fit under most kitchen sinks. Please read carefully before
proceeding with installation.
Step 1: Mounting System Under Sink
(a) Locate a space under the sink that allows
the
unit to be mounted close to the cold
water supply and allows for easy access
during maintenance and filter changes.
System must be installed to the cold water
supply only. Allow approximately 2” (5cm)
clearance between the bottom of the filter
housing and the floor of the sink cabinet.
(c)Using the mounting hole on the bracket,
mark the location for the mounting screws
on the cabinet wall under the sink.
(d)Screw the (2) screws into the wall at the
marked location.
(e)Hang the module on the screws using the
mounting holes in the bracket.
4
Drill a Hole for the Faucet in a Porcelain Sink
Note:
Most sinks are pre drilled with 1 ½” or 1 ¼” diameter hole that you can use for your
faucet. (If you are already using it for a sprayer or soap dispenser, see step 1)
Porcelain sinks are extremely hard and can crack or chip easily.
Use extreme caution when drilling. Watts Premier accepts no responsibility for
damage resulting from the installation of faucet.
Diamond tip drill bit is recommended for drilling in porcelain.
Step 1
Determine desired location for the faucet on your sink and place a
piece of masking tape over where the hole is to be drilled. Mark the
center of the hole on the tape.
Step 2
Using a variable speed drill set on the slowest speed, drill a 1/8“ pilot
hole through both porcelain and metal casing of sink at the marked
center of the desired location. Use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep
the drill bit cool (If drill bit gets hot it may cause the porcelain to crack
or chip).
Step 3
Using a 1/2” Drill Bit, proceed to drill the larger hole. Keep drill speed
on the slowest speed and use lubricating oil or liquid soap to keep the
hole saw cool during cutting.
Step 4
Make sure the surroundings of the sink are cooled before mounting the
faucet to the sink after drilling and remove all sharp edges.
Punch a Hole for the Faucet in a Stainless Steel Sink
Note:
If mounting faucet to a Stainless Steel Sink you will need a 1/2”
Hole Punch. The faucet opening should be centered between the
back splash and the edge of the sink, ideally on the same side as
the vertical drain pipe.
Step 5
Drill a ¼” pilot hole. Use a 1/2” Hole Punch and an adjustable wrench
to punch the hole in the sink.
The faucet can now be installed.
5
Installation of Faucet
Step 1
Step 2 Place the escutcheon chrome plate and the black rubber washer on the
faucet shank. (Parts found in faucet parts bag).
Insert the faucet shank through the hole in sink and let it rest on the sink top.
Step 3 From the underside of the sink, slide on the locating washer, lock washer and brass nut onto the shank. Check orientation of faucet then tighten brass nut securely.
Step 4
Connect blue tube from the filtration system to the faucet shank.
Place the brass nut onto the tube, followed by the plastic sleeve (tapered
end pointing to the end of tube) and then place the plastic insert into the end of the tube.
Step 5
Insert the assembled blue tube into the end of the faucet shank and use a
wrench to tighten the brass nut securely.
6
Adapt-a-Valve Installation
Caution: Water supply line to the system must be from the cold water supply line. Hot water will severely damage your system.
(A)Turn off the main supply water to the house.
(B) Turn off the cold water supply to the faucet by turning the angle stop valve clockwise
until it is completely off. Drain any water in the line by opening the faucet cold side.
(C) Attach adapt-a-valve as illustrated in the center photo below, choosing the configuration
that fits your plumbing.
(D) Attach the loose end of the green tube to the Adapt-a-Valve.
Insert the green tube into the ¼” opening on the adapt-a-valve until it stops.
(E) Turn on water supply and open the Adapt-a-valve. Check for leaks.
Configuration:
* Washer
Configuration for 3/8”
(With Brass Fittings)
* Insert White Washer
Hot
Supply
Cold
Supply
Configuration for 1/2” (Without Brass Fittings)
System Start Up
(A)Turn faucet handle to the open position to start the flow of water through the unit. Run 7
gallons of water through the unit in order to flush out the normal black carbon fines (it will
“sputter” until the air is purged out) from the unit. Initially, the water may appear cloudy
which is due to tiny air bubbles and it will clear up shortly. Close the faucet when finished.
(B) Check for leaks. If you have any leaks, shut off the water supply to your system, tighten
any fittings / housings and restart unit.
7
FILTER CHANGE
Watts Premier recommends changing the filter element
every 6 months.
Use Watts Premier’s replacement cartridge only. Other
filters may look the same, but only filters by Watts are
manfactured to fit your WP-1 filter unit in order to ensure
proper reduction of water contaminants.
