B) OR You need to T off the water out of a closed tube.
In that case we can supply a "saddle valve" instead of the 12mm adapter. This is not included as standard, so you'll need to add it to your basket
Note this is designed for copper pipes but can be used on plastic pipe - see below *
C) Or you can get your own washing machine type adapter from the high street.
In this case please note that our filter accpets 1/4 inch tubing.
So you will need to convert from whatever you but to the 1/4 inch female filter inlet. (Our parts section might be helpful).
If you need to sort out the adapters after you order please rest assured that we'll send them out immediately.
As long as you have worked out what you need it really is very simple.
*More about using a Saddle Valve plastic pipes
"The instructions say to fit it to copper pipe as used in the domestic plumbing but it is my intention to use the filter in my campervan this requires it to be fitted to 12mm semi rigid plastic tubing.
I followed the instructions and clamped the connector over the plastic pipe then using the T-bar tightened to pierce the tube then wound out to allow water to flow.
I found the flow to be restricted i.e. only a dribble out of the tap,not to be outdone I undid the clamp and inspected the plastic tubing. The hole in the tubing made by the spike looked very small so I reamed it out with a small drill bit this made a big difference to the flow and i am now very pleased with the result.
I know the mobilehome users would benefit from a bit of competition in the water filter market".

All in all, seems excellent value for money. - Review by Peter
I received my kit in good time. Very pleased with the looks of it. Overall very pleased with purchase and would buy again and will recommend you to fellow boaters. Nice to deal with a company that values its customers.
Brillliant - Review by Jack Fox
"I have just fitted to my boat today,your taste and odour filter kit absolutely brilliant. Easy to install,and very reasonably priced. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that the tap supplied in the kit,needs the crew to hold her thumb on it for the duration of filling the kettle,and as this takes a little while when she could be doing something else,she gets a bit annoyed. I do not want a mutiny so I must speak to one of your team,who I must say have been very helpful ,to see if the tap could be upgraded to one that you can turn instead of pressing. I say again what a product,excellent."
UK Water Filters: Response
Hi Jack many thanks for leaving the review. We have spoken since so hope your tap is now free flowing without the need to hold it down.
The trick is to flick the black lever on the tap UP and flick down to turn off.
