Drinking Water Filter Installation
The Water2buy Drinking Water System can be installed in under 20 minutes, this installing video will help and guide you through every step of the way.
This video demonstrates how easy it is to install your W2B 50 Drinking Water System.
The W2B 50 drinking water system is designed to remove chlorine, sediment, and volatile organic compounds from your water making your water cleaner and better tasting.
You’ll need a screwdriver, an adjustable wrench, a knife and a drill with a 12mm an 2mm bit.
First you need to make sure you turn off your mains water.
The saddle valve will tap into your cold water supply, it’s suitable for 1/2 inch and 3/8th inch pipes.
It makes it’s own hole in the pipe by turning the piercing screw.
With plastic piping the hole can close over after some time so we recommend pre-drilling a 2mm hole with plastic piping, it’s not necessary if you have copper piping.
Secure the saddle valve onto the water pipe and tighten with a wrench.
Twist the piercing screw fully closed to pierce the pipe.
Screw off the nut from the saddle valve and attach a suitable length of the tubing provided, place the nut on first, then the olive, then place the insert in to the pipe.
Now screw it on to the saddle vale and tighten with a wrench.
Drill a 12mm hole where you would like to position the tap, the tap can be mounted on your sink or counter top.
Put he top washer set onto the tap stem and place the end through the hole.
Secure in place with the bottom washer set and secure with the nut.
Take the push fit connector and insert the pipe into one end.
Push the other end onto the end of the tap.
Position the filter in as easy to reach location so that replacements are easy.
Use a screw driver to mount the brackets provided.
Remove the caps from both ends of the filter.
Add the two push fit connectors at both ends, some filters allow you to connect the tubing directly without connectors.
Connect the tubing from the saddle valve into the correct end of the water filter and the tubing from the tap into the other.
Note the water flow arrow on your filter.
Place your filter into the mounting brackets .
Turn the water mains back on.
Open the saddle valve piercing screw fully.
Check for leaks at all joints.
Before use run approximately 5 litres of water through the filter until the water turns clear.
We recommend replacing the filter every 12 months per person so if you have two people in the household simply replace the filter every 6 months. Filters are available from Water2buy and are very inexpensive compared to bottled water. Write the install date on your filter to make sure you keep your water safe and bacteria free, do not use a filter longer than the recommended life span.
When replacing the filter simply close the saddle valve.
Remove the tubing from the old filter and connect the new filter.
