Precautions
WARNING: Do not use with water that is microbiologically
unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or
after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on
disinfected waters that may contain filterable cysts.
CAUTION: Filter must be protected against freezing, which can
cause cracking of the filter and water leakage.
CAUTION: The rubber o-ring provides the water-tight seal between
the cap and the bottom of the housing. It is important that the o-ring
be properly seated in the groove below the threads of the housing or
a water leak could occur.
CAUTION: Because of the product’s limited service life and to
prevent costly repairs or possible water damage, we strongly
recommend that the bottom of all plastic housings be replaced every
five years for clear and ten years for opaque. If the bottom of your
housing has been in use for longer than this period, it should be
replaced immediately. Date the bottom of any new or replacement
housing to indicate the next recommended replacement date.
CAUTION: Clear housings may crack or craze in time causing failure
and leakage if exposed to organic solvents such as those found in
aerosol sprays for cleaning products and insecticides.
NOTE:
• For cold water use only.
• Do not install where system will be exposed to direct sunlight.
• Make certain that installation complies with all state and local laws
and regulations.
• The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by the
selected cartridge are not necessarily in your water. Ask your local
water municipality for a copy of their water analysis, or have your
water tested by a reputable water testing lab.
• After prolonged periods of non-use (such as during a vacation) it is
recommended that the system be flushed thoroughly. Let water run
for 5–6 minutes before using.
• The filter cartridges used with this system have a limited service
life. Changes in taste, odor, and/or flow of the water being filtered
indicate that the cartridge should be replaced.
• Some harmless bacteria may attack cellulose media cartridges.
If your cartridge seems to disintegrate or develops musty or
moldy odor, switch to a synthetic media cartridge or consult the
manufacturer.

Installation
• Please read all instructions, specifications, and precautions before installing and using
this filter.
• For installation on standard 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch main water line (galvanized, copper or
plastic pipe).
• Use only Teflon® tape for fitting housing connections.
• Install filter cartridge in filter housing according to the filter cartridge replacement
instructions (below) before proceeding with installation.
• Install filter after water meter or pressure tank.
• Numbered diagrams correspond with numbered steps.

1. Turn off cold water supply (A) and open nearest faucet (B) to release pressure in pipes
before starting installation.
2. Use bracket as a template to mark screw locations on wall (C). Insert mounting screws
into wall. Leave a space the thickness of a nickel between the head of the screw and the
wall to slip bracket onto screws. Then place bracket over the cap and align with inlet and
outlet ports (D).
NOTE: Allow 11⁄2-inches clearance below housing to enable filter cartridge changes.
NOTE: The following instructions are for installations using compression fittings.
Depending upon the installation, standard pipe fittings can be used.
3. Align filter assembly with ends of pipe, making certain cap opening marked “IN” is facing
your incoming water supply. It will be necessary to spread ends of pipe apart to install
filter assembly. Using two adjustable wrenches, hold inlet adapter securely with one
wrench and tighten with second wrench. Repeat process for outlet adapter.
(E) Assemble all fittings. Start fittings into cap by inserting fitting through opening in
bracket. Use a wrench to tighten firmly. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN. About one thread should
remain visible. (F) Remove compression nuts from fittings, if used.
NOTE: If using mounting bracket, be sure to insert fittings through bracket before
threading into filter cap.

4. Measure length across assembled fittings (G) and subtract 1 inch for 3/4-inch pipe or
11⁄2 inches for 1/2-inch pipe. Mark section of pipe to be removed.
NOTE: Approximately 6 inches will be removed for 3/4-inch pipe and 51⁄4 inches for
1/2‑inch pipe.
Using a pipe cutter or hacksaw, cut pipe and remove marked section (H). File or sand
sharp edges on remaining pipe.
5. Slip brass compression nut (I) and brass ferrule (J) onto each end of 3/4-inch pipe. If
installing on 1/2-inch pipe, substitute rubber ferrule (K) for brass ferrule.
6. Install WFP-10 (L) cartridge into housing, making sure the end of the cartridge seats over
standpipe in bottom of housing.

7. Screw bottom of housing onto the cap (M). Hand-tighten. Do not over-tighten. Slowly
turn on water supply (N) to allow filter to fill with water, then depress red pressure-relief
button (O) on top of cap to release trapped air. Check for leaks before leaving installation.
Open nearest faucet (P) and flush cartridge for 5 minutes.
CAUTION: If water pipes are used to ground electrical systems, appliances or phones, be
certain to install a jumper wire. Contact a qualified electrician with any questions about
your home’s electrical system.
