This uses an American made cartridge which is a small sealed unit which when installed under the sink, takes up very little space, and can be mounted either vertically or horizontally. It 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 months maintain a high quality water supply

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 .
