Thank you for your purchase of a state of the art Watts Premier Water Treatment system.
This filter pure system is equipped with a unique swivel valve in head push button assembly. This
allows for a simple and sanitary push button filter change that does not require you to turn off the
water source to the filtration system.
This two stage system is equipped with a sediment prefilter and a high quality carbon block filter.
The sediment filter reduces the sand, silt, sediment and rust particles that may be in your water.
The high end carbon block filter reduces the chlorine tastes and odors that may be in your water,
providing you crisp clean great tasting water at your tap.
Watts Premier also has a series of replacement filters that fit into this unique swivel head system.
These include:
·
Granular Activated Carbon filter for chlorine, taste and odor reduction with higher flow.
·
Ultra Filtration Membrane for greater particle reduction including cysts like Cryptosporidium,
Toxoplasma, Giardia and Entamoeba.
·
Lead and VOC filter block for the reduction of lead and harmful chemicals. 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.
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 elements, other bad tastes and odors will be apparent in your drinking water. This is why
it is important to change your filters 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 web site at www.wattspremier.com or call our
customer service department at 1-800-752-5582.

With proper installation and maintenance, this system will provide you with high quality water
for years to come. All of our water enhancement products are rigorously tested by
independent laboratories for safety and reliability.

Attach Tubing to System
Step 1
The two quick connect elbows are pre installed in to the back of the Filter-Pure
system. These elbows can be rotated in order to allow for the green and blue tube
Step 2
Take the green tube and push in to the quick connect elbow that is by the red colored
sediment filter on the left of the system. Make sure the tube is fully pushed in all the
way to the tube stop.
Step 3
Take the blue tube and push in to the quick connect elbow that is by the yellow
colored carbon filter on the right of the system. Make sure the tube is fully pushed
in all the way to the tube stop.
Mount the System Under the Sink
Step 4
Determine best location for the filtration system to be mounted near the cold water
supply angle stop valve to allow for future system maintenance.
Step 5
Using the mounting holes on the system bracket, mark the location for the mounting
screws on the cabinet wall. In the parts bag, locate the 2 self tapping screws. Using
an electric drill with a Phillips bit, screw them into the cabinet wall.
Mount the filtration system.
5
Drill a Hole for the Faucet in a Porcelain Sink
Note:
Most sinks are pre drilled with 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 6
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 7
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 8
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 9
After drilling, remove all sharp edges and make sure the surroundings
of the sink are cooled before mounting the faucet.
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 10 Drill a 1/8“ 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.
6
Faucet Installation
Choose the configuration that matches your faucet:
Connect Blue tube to Faucet
Step 11 In the faucet parts bag locate a brass compression nut, plastic
ferrule sleeve and a plastic tube insert. To assemble- place the
compression nut on the open end of the blue tube attached
to the filtration system, then the plastic ferrule sleeve (small
tapered end of sleeve pointing to the end of tube), finally push
the white plastic insert all the way into the end of blue tube.
Insert the assembled blue tube into the faucet stem and tighten
the brass compression nut with a wrench.
DO NOT overtighten.
7
Adapt-a-Valve Installation
Caution: Water supply line to the system must be from the cold water supply line only.
Hot water will severely damage your system.

(With Brass Fittings)
* Insert White Washer
WARNING:

Supply
Configuration for 1/2” (Without Brass Fittings)
Do not use Teflon tape with the Adapt-a-Valve.
Step 12 Turn off the cold water supply to the faucet by turning the angle stop valve completely
off. Open cold water on the sink faucet to relieve pressure.
Step 13 Choosing the configuration that fits your plumbing, attach the adapt-a-valve as
illustrated in the three photos above.
*Do not forget to install the white compression washer for 3/8” configuration.
Step 14 Locate the 1/4” green tube attached to the filtration system.
Insert the open end of the green 1/4” tube into the open 1/4”
quick connect fitting on the plastic adapt-a-valve making
sure the tube is pushed in all the way passed the o-ring to
the tube stop.
Step 15 Turn on the cold water supply at the angle stop valve, make
sure the adapt-a-valve is in the “ON” position and check for
leaks. Tighten/check any leaking fittings.

System Start-up
Step 16 Turn the faucet handle to the open position to start the flow
of water through the filtration system. Run approximately 7
gallons of water through the filtration system to flush out the
normal black carbon fines. The water may “sputter” until the
air is purged out from the system and the water may appear
cloudy due to air purging out from the system.
(Your faucet may vary).
Check for leaks over the next 24 hours.
Step 17 Once the flushing process is completed the water from the filtration system can be
used.
8
Changing The Filter Cartridges
Your system is equipped with valved heads which will automatically turn off the
water supply to each filter when the filter is released, thus you do not need to turn
off the incoming water supply at the Adapt-a-Valve. The faucet must be off when
filters are replaced. To make the removal of the filter cartridges easier, the heads
& cartridges may be swiveled up to 90 degrees as shown in the pictures below.
6 Month System Maintenance
Replace:
√ One sediment filter √ One carbon Block (Red Label P/N: 105311)
(Yellow Label P/N: 105351)
Step 1
Place a towel under the RO module to catch any excess water that
may drip out from the filters during the changeover.
Step 2
To remove a filter cartridge: Push & hold the button on the
valved head above the filter. Pull cartridge downward (from the
head) to remove. Release button and discard old filter.
Step 3
To install a filter cartridge: Remove the seal cap and insert
the cartridge into the valved head until you hear an audible “click”
(the button does not need to be pressed to install new filters).
Optional Filters:
√ UF Membrane Filter (P/N: 105321)
√ Lead+Chemical Reducing CB (P/N: 105371)
