Kinetico Drinking Water Filter
with MACguard®
Undersink Models 7000 and 7500
Installation Instructions
Important
The Drinking Water Filter with MACguard will not make biologically unsafe water safe to drink since
activated carbon will not kill bacteria. When applying the filter to non-chlorinated water supplies,
additional treatment steps may be necessary to assure the water’s bacterial makeup is compatible with
activated carbon final treatment.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate
disinfection before or after the system.
NOTE:
Read all steps, guides and rules carefully before installing and using the Kinetico
Drinking Water Filter with MACguard.

Installation Instructions
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation must comply with state and local codes and regulations.
Tools/Items Required
 Utility knife or tubing cutter
NOTE:
 Pliers
 Drill
 Phillips-head screwdriver
 9/16” Wrench or basin wrench
It is recommended that before purchasing a water treatment unit, you have your water tested to
determine your actual water treatment needs.
The Kinetico Drinking Water Filter with MACguard must be mounted in a vertical position, and the total hookup
distance should be limited to not more than 15 feet.
1.
(For systems installed with a faucet.)
Determine the best location for the drinking water faucet on the sink using
an existing sprayer hole or other pre-drilled hole. If you have to disconnect
and remove your faucet sprayer, follow the instructions provided by the
faucet manufacturer.
WARNING
If you do not have an existing hole that can accommodate the drinking
water faucet, you will have to drill one yourself or have one professionally
drilled. Do not attempt to drill a hole into your sink unless you have
previous experience doing so and have the necessary tools. Contact the
manufacturer of your sink for instructions on how to drill a separate hole.
If you need further assistance, your local Kinetico dealer can install the
system for a nominal charge.
Faucet Spout
Follow these steps to install the faucet on the sink top.
 Slide the small black rubber gasket onto the threaded shaft on the faucet
base.

Determine the desired location for the filter system. It should be easily accessible for cartridge replacement. Be sure
to leave adequate clearance under the filter to facilitate cartridge changes and allow for easy viewing of the
PureMometer filter life indicator.
NOTE:
Do not install in direct sunlight. The screws provided are for use with structurally sound wood
surfaces. You may need other mounting hardware if you are mounting on other surfaces.
Warning
Do not use the fittings provided on chrome tubing. If your plumbing type requires
different fittings than those provided, you may obtain them at a local hardware
store or home improvement center.
6. Using the bracket mounting screws, mount the filter system in the location you have chosen (See Figure 6).
