Instructions for Installing a Twin Pre Filter Housing Unit BBPFGAC10LD
Product Codes: BBPFGAC10LD
Fitting a by-pass valve is highly recommended so that the unit can be isolated for cartridge changing or to prolong the life of the filter when not required.
If fitting outside the property insulate the system to avoid frost damage. (The unit should not freeze).
Insist that your plumber fits a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) to protect the unit from unexpected water pressure increase.
This is rare but does happen - owing to overnight water utility works etc - and can result in failure / possible flooding. A good one is a Watts 2282500 which costs about £12
Notes for the Plumber
Please read the customer information above.
A bypass valve should be installed on every system to facilitate installation and service.

System must be operated in a vertical position. Do not lay it down during operation. The system may be placed in any position for shipping and installation but must be operated in the vertical position.
Make sure the system is level.
Please ensure the blue housing unit(s) remain in a vertical position while screwing on the black top. Otherwise the loose cartridge inside might mis-align and be damaged by the prongs / guides under the black top. This damage will void warranty for the filter cartridge(s).
