Installation Instructions



1. If your faucet is a "pull out" spray style, please ensure it has a removable aerator (see here) to expose the threading. 

After you unscrew the aerator, measure the internal diameter of the thread inside the faucet, and see which of the below adapters is a match

Click on the blue links to order the appropriate adapter:

1). 23.8mm (15/16" Male) diameter.

  2). 22.0mm (13/16" Male) diameter.  

                                                 3). 19.0mm (3/4" Female) diameter (Chicago Style Faucets).          


For faucets where you cannot unscrew the aerator with a wrench, an aerator removal tool may be necessary.  Please confirm this with the manufacturer of your faucet.


If you happen to have such a faucet type where the aerator cannot be removed, you may then want to consider our Undercounter Model: ULTRA-UC which comes with it's own dedicated faucet; or if you still wish for the Countertop system, then another option is to change your kitchen faucet to one that has a removable aerator.


2. Our Diverter attachment, which redirects the water to the counter filter units is pictured below and is designed to screw onto your faucet in place of the aerator mesh.  **If you have a female (inner threaded) faucet, we include free adapters for this with every filter system.
