Our products and solutions are no different from any other appliance buy you make.
To help makes things easier for you, we've given a guideline on the approximate skill-level and time involved in the installation of this product:
DIY: very basic; 30 minutes per cartridge from start to finish
Professional: it’s very simple but if not comfortable with DIY, we’d recommend asking a handy friend before getting the plumber/ local handyman in
Please note: some of you might think you're handier than you are! This is a guideline only, intended only to help you understand how simple installation is and whom you could ask to do it for you. If you were unsure, we would recommend getting the professionals in!

It all depends on the usage that you will need from the filter. After six months of use the filtration media begins to lose its effectiveness, usually coinciding with a significant decrease in the pure water flow as the ceramic outer section begins to clog with contaminants. We offer 6, 12 and 18 month cartridge reminders. We’ll automatically put you on a reminder appropriate for you and your filter so you don’t have to worry about changing your cartridge.
Less Expensive: In a direct gallon-for-gallon price comparison, filtered water is a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
Reduced Waste: Filtered water reduces waste; instead of disposing bottle after bottle, you only dispose the self-contained filter cartridge. For example, a 200-gallon Water Filter Cartridge replaces more than 1200 20-oz water bottles; bottles that may otherwise end up in landfills. Using filtered water at home helps reduce the need for the 41 billion plastic bottles sold every year.
Convenient: Unlike bottled water, Water Filters allow you to conveniently enjoy quality, great-tasting water directly from your tap.
Pre-Filters are designed to help increase the clarity of the water used in your entire home. They reduce sediment such as rust and silt particles and extend the life of your household appliances that use or process water. They also prepare your water for Final Filtration and are effective at optimizing the life of your Final Filter.
Final Filters are designed for point-of-use filtration at the sink, refrigerator or shower, for example. They work to improve the taste, odor and clarity of your water and can also reduce harmful contaminants. Your food and beverages will taste better when they are made with filtered water. These filters can also help protect small appliances that use filtered water. There are a number of reasons you may want to use both types of filters in your home.
Using a combination of both types of filters will help optimize the filtration quality of your water. For example, if you would like to improve the taste and clarity of your drinking water with a Final Filter (point-of-use), a Pre-Filter installed on your incoming water line (point-of-entry) will reduce the incoming sediment and help extend the life of your Final Filter.
Yes, the changing of a water filter cartridge is not a complicated process and should only take a couple of minutes. The cartridges also come with full instructions and the process has been likened to changing the ink in a pen, you can view the instructions here.
We automatically give you the cartridges that work best for 99% of cases, taking in the water in your area. We do a range of filters that take out a range of substances, so your needs can be met if you require something specific to be taken out of your water.
Nitrates are only generally a concern for those with private water supplies.
