    I decided to upgrade my nature pure water filter to the latest QC (quick change) model.

    Fitting is so simple, just cut the cold feed to the bathroom mixer and fit the threaded connectors

    The wall of my toilet is hollow board so I mounted the QC head unit onto a solid piece of board to then fix to the wall below the sink.

    The water through flow is much faster than the old model

    The new model is so much easier to winterize or just change the filter.
    When unscrewing the cartridge a valve shuts off the water. You then fit the black plastic plank plug in place of the filter to allow water to flow through the cold pipe without the filter so you can now flush or drain any water.

    Is it a spelling error you mean Downgrade or Retro Grade don't you

    When your replacement filter cartridge goes from a retail of circa £50 to £96 each id say that was a backward step
    Given the following and popularity nature pure has in the leisure industry im disgusted at its tactics and pricing strategy, I refuse to supply or fit any more of their products :Mad:

    Ps I take it this change over cost you in the region of £230 Yes?? just for the filter and the stainless collar,:Doh: The tap would have been another £45:Angry:

    I paid £200 plus £60 for a spare filter. I should get 3 yrs from each easily
    My old unit is for sale.

    If you read it you would see this is the basic, you use the existing tap

    All much cheaper than a base vehicle service :Laughing:

    general ecology recommend a new filter every two years regardless of accumulated water flow.

    And i dont like the idea of filtering ALL the water passing through the washbasin tap, prefering a seperate tap.

    Every year is nonsense it filters at least 3000 litres and we use about 4 litres per day.
    Ask Jim :Wink:

    We only clean our teeth wash our hands and fill the kettle, We don't have a bath in it :Laughing:

    We had the separate tap in the RV, but now filter all the cold water to the kitchen tap. Plumbing it in this way makes the flow a little slow, but apart from that its fine. We are in the van well over 100 nights a year and the filters last us around 2 years. :thumb:

    The typically recommended annual change is for the seagul IV units only

    wash your teeth, yes.......hands....why use pure water ?........kettle, your going to boil it anyway.

    Snippet taken from GE website.....



    PRSQC2Canisters should be replaced when flow decreases noticeably, and [HI]at a minimum of every two years.[/HI]

    as you will see Jim, my post was edited with the correct time period.....minimum two year change period.
    Confused me at first but means two years max at least :Doh:

    thing is, they FILTER bacteria....they dont kill it, so it will accumulate and grow throughout the filter over time.

    Yes but they say lifespan depends on usage and water type. Two years is a generalisation not set in stone. Our usage is low and we don't fill our tank with bilgewater.
    The filter element is not carbon and it filters smaller than the bacteria itself so it cannot get through but it may clog

    Check my previous posts I wont/cant knock the product I use one myself
    I choke every time i buy a filter at £50 I dont disagree with your useage time line either BUT
    Take away the the £60 cost of the filter and you just paid £140 for the little stainless collar :Doh: Its criminal

    This "Upgrade" was a change for changes sake with a massive price hike to boot
    Sorry to have to say its no longer value for money im afraid

    This bit

    That bit allows you to remove the filter without emptying the plumbing. You can unscrew it live.
    You then screw the threaded black cap that is stored on the side where the filter was and now you have through flow to flush or drain the system or even just to use because you left the filter at home.
    Dear perhaps but it is quality. Prices quoted by me are not online, shows only

    Also the new type filter is more efficient with better flow rate and longer life at 3000 litres rather than 2000 of the old carbon filter

    hi. my mate lives in his camper . all water goes through his filter . he is allergic to chlorine.
    he uses those filters at 3 months mostly. he does get a bit of discount sometimes as he buys them in bulk .
    but it is a bit pricey.
    i use a doulton ceramic filter seems to last for ever and is scrub able .it as a silver inlay to really clean the water. silver is the best cleanser of water .
