    I would get a T and run this just for the filter. Or ideally get a PRV and use that with a T.

    Sorry, missed the taps in the pic!

    Cheers

    EDIT - just saw the pic above, yes seems you are correct. A bit weird having this plastic bit inline with the main tap feed but looks like that is what is it for?

    You should easily blow from the mains to the sink tap labelled ends.

    Thanks for your help artman. I hope it doesn't reduce the pressure out of the kitchen sink tap.

    If it is setup correctly it should give full flow to the sink and reduce it to the filter outlet.

    System is installed and bypass set to 70%. Flow through filter tap is ok at first but reduces to a trickle within a few seconds. Did this happen to anyone else? Any clues as to how to fix it?

    My strips are less yellow and I have left at factory setting. I also use an in tank softener cartridge in the tank on the suction hose. never had issues with scale and the kettle looks great.

    The flow isnt that great through the filter. I will time how long it takes to fill glass and let you know.

    cheers

    Thanks artman. Changed the setting to 10 and its flowing fast now. Don't know if that setting is correct though.

    Hi all,

    Now having some health issues, I need quality drinking water at home. I am located inner city Perth and believe our water is better quality than the suburbs.

    I am looking for a under sink filter solution and need to cover these requirements:
    1. Maximum removal of chlorine, pesticides, other chemicals & impurities for drinking water.
    2. Make drinking water more alkaline.
    3. Provide quality water for my HX machine.

    I am not sure if a Brita C150 finest will meet my requirements as depending on the bypass setting, it bypasses filtering and thus won't meet number 1.
    I know it will easily meet number 3.

    I currently use bottled spring water in my HX which is a pain. Water filter suppliers can supply filters to meet 1 & 2.
    Any suggestions what I should do? Cost not an issue, but convenience is.

    Peter.
