CHANGING THE CARTRIDGES FROM UNDER THE SINK WATER FILTEROctober 29, 2016 / by Marco / Categories : Exercise, Humour, Other, Reflection
Last week I decided to change the cartridges from the 3 stage Water Filter that was sitting under the sink. In order to change the water filter cartridges I needed to get the following equipment:
- Wrench Spanner Handle for 10″ Water Filter Cartridge Housing. It looks like this:
- Replacement Water Filter Cartridges 0.5 Micron Carbon and Sediment
I purchased these from eBay.
The first thing you must do is turn the cold water off by turning the knob under the sink. Now turn the water filter on to release some of the water pressure and to make sure there is no water flowing through the filter.
Pull out the water filter so you can easily access all the components.
When you have access to the filter compartments, use the wrench and turn the right compartment anti-clockwise.
Remove the sediment filter cartridge and replace it with the new one. I washed the inside of the compartment and also cleaned the rubber washer.
Here’s a comparison of the old and new cartridge. The old one looked much darker, so it was definitely time to replace it.
Tighten the compartment back to the water filter. Then replace the filter in the second compartment which is on the left side. This is the carbon filter.
It looks like this. The blue one is the old cartridge. I cleaned the compartment and the washer before putting it back.
Put the unit back under the sink and you need to turn the water back on and let it run for a few minutes.
Here’s a picture of the new and old filters together (I purchased a pack that came with two sets of filters so 4 in total).
Hopefully this has helped someone and if you have any questions please leave a comment and I’ll respond.
