Replacing The Filter
Step 1: Turn the water valve to the "Off" position. (You may need a towel and small bucket as there maybe a small amount of water.)
Step 2: Using the tips of your fingers, push in on the collar of the push fit connection while pulling the tubing out off either side of the filter. Repeat process for the other end of the filter. Recycle old filter.
Step 3: The direction of the flow is indicated on the filter. Take the tubing coming from the water supply (wall side) and connect it to the "Inlet" side of the filter by pressing tubing firmly into the filter and then try to pull it out. The push fit connection should grab the tubing not allowing it to pull out. Take the tubing connect to your refrigerator or appliance and connect it to the "Outlet" side of the filter using this same method.
Step 4: Turn the water valve back to the "On" position and check for any leaks. There should not be any leaks. If you notice any dripping, turn the water valve back to "Off" position and check all of the connections. You might need to push the tubing into the push fit connection a little harder to get it to connect properly.

NSF/ANSI Standard 42 | Aesthetic Effects | covers systems designed to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (such as chlorine, taste and odor, and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water.
NSF/ANSI Standard 53 | Health Effects | covers systems designed to reduce specific health-related contaminants that may be present in public or private drinking water. Standard 53 establishes minimum requirements for material safety, structural integrity, product literature, and health related contaminant reduction performance claims such as lead, cysts, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and mercury.
