This uses the same cartridge as some other company’s 2HK-1 cartridge. The cartridge is a small sealed unit which when installed under the sink, takes up very little space, and can be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Made in America, this cartridge is a high quality system, which removes a wide range of chemicals and heavy metals, while retaining the beneficial minerals in the water. The one micron mesh filter also removes very fine dirt and sediment and is effective at removing both Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts. The cartridge has a bacteriostatic nature which will allow the cartridge to remain hygienic for up to three years. In practise, most families need to replace the cartridge every 24 to 30 months to maintain a high quality water supply
System come standard with the chrome diverter valve that screws on to most kitchen mixer taps. This allows easy operation by moving a lever sideways to “divert” the water from the tap through the purifier. Simply turn the lever downwards to send the unfiltered water into the sink for washing dishes etc.
Two universal rubber push on bulbs are available where there is no tap thread, such as the older style separate hot and cold taps from the 1950s to 1970s. The large UR bulb has an expanding mouth of 15 to over 20 mm and fits most taps, but being a larger mouth, needs to be held onto the tap when in use.
The smaller rubber bulb fits taps up to 18 mm diametre and has a series of ribs to hold onto the tap, so has a firmer fit. Please check the options when ordering.
