The Filter Cartridge Specs:

PENTEK WATER TSGAC Anti-Scale, Chlorine, Taste & Odour cartridge:

TSGAC cartridges contain granular activated carbon to effectively reduce unwanted tastes and odors, including chlorine taste & odor, as well as phosphate crystals to reduce rust stains and scale deposits.
The construction of the cartridge allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the cartridge. An internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. This design allows for maximum contact between the water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption.
Before the water exits the cartridge, a post-filter helps remove carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The post-filter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket ensuring that it is firmly secured and eliminating any potential for bypass.
Pentek TSGAC Cartridges provide superior performance and outstanding protection for your water lines, fixtures, major appliances and commercial equipment.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE THIS DOUBLE FILTER UNIT.

IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS CONCERNING INSTALLATION WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT YOU USE A COMPETENT / REGISTERED PLUMBER

1. CONNECT BARREL NIPPLE TO THE TWO HOUSING COVERS, ENSURE THAT THE BOTH UNITS ARE "FACING FRONT" & IN CORRECT ALIGNMENT FOR WATER FLOW. CONSIDER THE SPACING REQUIRED BETWEEN THE TWO UNITS TO ALLOW ADEQUATE PIPE WORK CONNECTIONS. TIP: USE PTFE TAPE ON THE CONNECTING BARREL NIPPLE & OTHER CONNECTIONS TO ENSURE A GOOD WATERTIGHT SEALS.
ADVICE TIP: LAY BOTH TOPS ON A LONG ENOUGH & STRONG ENOUGH PIECE OF FLAT PLYWOOD TO ENABLE LIFTING INTO POSITION & MARKING OF BRACKET DRILL HOLES.

2. CONNECT THE BRACKETS TO EACH HOUSING TOP. ENSURING THAT YOU USE THE "HOUSING-BRACKET BOLTS" TO CONNECT THE BRACKET TO THE HOUSINGS. NEXT ATTACH THE EMPTY HOUSING TO EACH HOUSING COVER, TAKING CARE TO NOT PUT ANY UNDUE STRAIN ON THE CONNECTING BARREL NIPPLE/S.
ADVICE TIP: STAND BOTH UNITS ON A LONG ENOUGH & STRONG ENOUGH PIECE OF FLAT PLYWOOD TO ENABLE LIFTING INTO POSITION & MARKING OF BRACKET DRILL HOLES
TIP: YOU CAN HAVE THE BRACKETS ALIGNED WITH THE SHORT ARM OF THE "L" FACING UP OR DOWN, IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR AVAILABLE SPACE, BUT, IT IS EASIER TO MARK & FIT IF, THE SHORT ARM OF THE "L" FACES UP.  IF INSTALLING WITH THE SHORT ARM OF THE 'L" DOWN, YOU CAN ATTACH THE BRACKETS TO THE HOUSING TOP, AFTER THE BRACKETS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. THE HOUSINGS DO NOT HAVE TO BE DONE UP TIGHTLY.

3. SELECT THE INSTALLATION POINT FOR THE DOUBLE FILTER UNIT, ENSURE SELECTED LOCATION IS ROBUST ENOUGH TO CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE COMPLETE ASSEMBLY. (TOTAL WEIGHT WILL BE IN EXCESS OF: 7KGS, ALBEIT SPREAD OVER 8 FIXING POINTS)  MARK THE INSTALLATION POINT OF THE WALL BRACKETS & PREPARE LOCATION TO BE ATTACHED ACCORDINGLY (IE: PRE-DRILL HOLES, INSERT WALL PLUGS, ETC. AS NEEDED) TIP: LEAVE ENOUGH ROOM BELOW THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUSINGS TO ALLOW REMOVAL FOR MAINTENANCE, CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT ETC, IT MAY ALSO BE DESIRABLE TO LEAVE ENOUGH ROOM BELOW FOR A DRIP TRAY TOO. YOU WILL NEED A SECOND / THIRD PAIR OF HANDS FOR THIS PART.

4. INSTALL BRACKETS TO PREVIOUSLY MARKED POSITIONS, ENSURE YOU USE THE CORRECT TYPE OF WALL BOLTS, SCREWS, ETC ACCORDING TO THE WALL SURFACE.

5. INSERT CORRECT FILTER INTO APPROPRIATE HOUSING(SEE ABOVE), TIGHTEN UP HOUSINGS USING THE SUPPLIED SPANNER. IN THIS INSTANCE, THE FIRST CARTRIDGE IS THE PENTEK TSGAC, THE SECOND CARTRIDGE IS THE PENTEK  SCBC10 POSITION ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTION OF INCOMING WATER FLOW.

6. SLOWLY TURN ON WATER SUPPLY & ALLOW BOTH HOUSINGS TO FILL COMPLETELY, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO OPERATE THE RED PRESSURE RELEASE VALVE. CHECK FOR LEAKS. NEXT TURN ON THE FIRST WATER OUTLET AFTER THE INSTALLATION, TAP, ETC, TO ALLOW TRAPPED AIR TO BE EXPELLED. RUN THE WATER OUTLET FOR THE RECOMMENDED TIME FOR THE FILTER UNITS AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS FOUND INSIDE EACH FILTER BOX / PACKAGING.

7. CARRY OUT REGULAR CHECKS & MAINTENANCE OF THE FILTRATION UNIT AS WOULD BE REQUIRED ACCORDING TO YOUR WATER USE.
