Safety Information
supply pipe to the filtration system.
Read all instructions before installing and using your
home water filtration system. Follow all steps exactly to
correctly install. Reading this manual will also help you
to get all the benefits from the filtration system.
NOTICE:: All plumbing codes must be completed in accordance
with national, state, and local plumbing codes. Local code
information can be obtained at your local public works department.
This system has been tested according to NSF/ANSI
Standard 42 for particulate class III reduction (5 micron
to less than 15 micron). The concentration of the
indicated substance in water entering the system was
reduced to a concentration less than or equal to the
permissible limit for water leaving the system, as
specified in NSF/ANSI 42. The testing was performed
using spiked tap water at a flow rate of 4 GPM (15.2
L/min.), pH of 7.5 ± 0.5, pressure of 60 PSIG, and
temperature of 68 ± 5°F.
NOTICE:: In the state of Massachusetts: The Commonwealth
of Massachusetts plumbing code 248-CMR shall be adhered to. A
licensed plumber shall be used for this installation.
GROUNDING INFORMATION
INFORMATION (METAL
PLUMBING INSTALLATIONS)
WARNING:: ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD. Prior to
installation on metallic plumbing, securely install two
grounding clamps and a #4 copper wire per installation
instructions. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in death or electrical shock.
All plumbing must be completed in accordance with
national, state and local plumbing codes. Local code
information can be obtained at your local public works
department. In Massachusetts, plumbing code 248
CMR 3.00 and 10.00 shall be adhered to. Consult with
your licensed plumber.
The house main incoming water pipe is often used to
ground electrical outlets in the home. Grounding
protects you from electrical shock. Installing the water
filtration system may break this ground. Before
beginning installation, purchase and securely install
two grounding clamps and a #4 copper wire across the
location where the filter will be, tightly clamping it at
both ends, as shown below.
To condition all water in the home, install the filtration
system close to the water supply inlet, and before all
other plumbing connections, except outside water
pipes.
WARNING:: Do not use with water that is
microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without
adequate disinfection before or after the system.
Ground Wire
(not included)
CAUTION:: Do not install the filtration system outside,
or in extreme hot or cold temperatures. Temperature of
the water supply to the filtration system must be
between 40°F and 100°F. Do not install on a hot water
line.
Clamp
(2 - not
included)
CAUTION:: Avoid installing in direct sunlight.
Excessive sun heat may cause distortion or other
damage to nonmetallic parts.
NOTICE:: This filtration system works on water pressures of 30 psi
(minimum) to 100 psi (maximum). If your house water pressure is
over the maximum, install a pressure reducing valve in the water

INSTALLATION LOCATION
LOCATION
WARNING:: Electrical Shock Hazard. Prior to installation on metallic plumbing, securely install two grounding clamps and a #4 copper wire per
installation instructions. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or electrical shock.
To filter all household water, install this home water filtration system on the household’s main incoming water pipe. For a
home with municipal water supply, install the filter between the home’s incoming water supply and the water softener, if a
water softener is being used (See Fig. 1). If the home has well water, reverse the order of the filter and the water softener
(See Fig. 2).

Mounting the filter
IMPORTANT:: To operate properly, you must install
this filtration system in a vertical orientation. The
filtration system must also be installed with the water
flow following the arrows on the filter’s inlet and outlet.
This corresponds to a left-to-right flow, when looking at
the front of the filter head assembly.
□ Use the included screws to mount the mounting
bracket (B) to a strong and stable surface that
can support up to 15 lbs. Allow for a few inches
of space under the sump of the filter (A) to allow
you to grasp and pivot it outward when replacing
filter cartridges.
□ Mount the filter (A) to the bracket (B) using the
four notches on the bracket. When mounted, the
filter should be aligned with the inlet and outlet
plumbing, and not cause rigid pipes to distort.

FILTER CARTRIDGE LIFE
LIFE
Replace the filter cartridge every six months. There are several variables that determine how long a cartridge will last.
These include:
1. How much water you use, and
2. How much sediment, taste and/or odor, or other unwanted substance, is in the water.
You will know it is time to replace the cartridge when you first notice the return of the unwanted sediment, taste and/or odor
in your water, or when the flow diminishes or stops.
FILTER CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
REPLACEMENT
NOTE It is not necessary to shut off the water supply
when replacing the filter cartridge.
1.
Grasp the lower part of the sump and pull it firmly and slowly toward you, pivoting upward until it stops in the
bypass/filter change position. You may notice a hissing sound, as a small amount of water (approximately 4
ounces) is expelled into the vent tube to relieve pressure in the sump.
Pull sump

remove
from head
Pivot sump
up to bypass
position
2.
Pull the sump downward out of the head. To avoid unintended water flow from the filter head, do not pivot the
filter head down to the service position without the sump and replacement filter cartridge in place.
3.
Take the sump assembly to a sink or level waterproof surface before opening it. Unsnap the lid clamp by pulling
its latches in opposite directions. Do not pry or use tools, as this may damage the assembly.

Filter Cartridges (continued)
5.
Remove the used filter cartridge from the sump. If you have difficulty removing the cartridge from the sump,
insert a screwdriver into the slot and pry up. Dispose of the used cartridge properly.
NOTE Check the sump to ensure it is dry and free of debris.
6.
Take the new filter cartridge out of its packaging and remove the protective caps from the ports. Filter cartridges
can only be installed in one orientation, and are “keyed” to assure proper fit. Insert the new filter cartridge into
the sump, and turn it until the triangular points on its top edge align with, and drop into the corresponding
detents in the sump.
