1 ) The Default Price does not include a pressure limiting valve ( PLV ) that is required for insurance purposes if you have high water pressure and do not have a PLV installed to the house supply. All modern homes have these fitted, but houses built before 2010 may not. If in doubt choose to fit one as we are only charging cost price and it provides good protection against high pressure damage to the filter casing and potential water leaks.
The purpose of the PLV is to stop high water pressure and "Water Hammer' from cracking the filter casing. Water hammer is a sudden burst of pressure caused by sudden closing of water valves and is common with modern ceramic taps, dishwashers and washing machines. We use high quality NZ Apex Branded valves for an extra $35.00. Cheaper Chinese models are available on request .
2) There are a range of taps and connection valves to choose from. Please choose the options to suit. your installation
