How to change your pre-filter cartridge
1) Turn off the water supply.
2) Take a bucket and place under the filter housing to catch any water spillage.
3) Then press the red or black button on top of the housing unit (if you have one) to release pressure.
Otherwise open up the cold water kitchen tap.
4) Remove the bottom housing from the head (Lefty loosey / righty tighty!)
5) Place the new cartridge in the housing- noting the marking on the cartridge to position top and bottom correctly.
6) Optionally put some Vaseline on the housing cartridge thread to make it easier to open next time (but do not put Vaseline on the cartridges).
7) Close housing.
Do not over tighten.
8) Turn the water supply back on. (If you have a bypass valve make sure it is turned back on).
9) Open up your cold water taps for 5 minutes and flush toilets to let any trapped air escape.
The water may look cloudy for a while (most likely tiny air bubbles) but will settle down.
