There are 2 ways to install the UltraStream. 1. Benchtop – For this connection to work, the faucet has to be “normal”. Normal means the tap doesn’t convert to a shower spray, pull out or have a non-standard head. You’ll utilize a diverter valve to control the water flow. When the slider of the diverter […]
The easiest way to find out the size of the thread in your mixer tap or faucet is to remove the aerator (this is the part that screws off at the end of your tap) and measure the diameter (across the centre) of the thread. Take a clear photo with an accurate measurement of your […]
Attaching your UltraStream to your kitchen faucet is, in 95% of cases, easy. 1. Remove the existing ‘bubbler’ from your tap 2. Attach the included diverter to your tap. Attach the diverter’s hose to your UltraStream. Benchtop Installation Video However.. Some newer faucets do not fit the thread of the diverter. In this case you […]
John Guest Quickfittings are a patented, simple method of attaching hoses, capable of withstanding mains pressure. To make a connection the tube is simply pushed in (hard) by hand. The unique patented John Guest collet locking system then holds the tube firmly in place without deforming it or restricting flow. To remove it, push the collet around […]
The blue tap under the UltraStream is where we connect the inlet hose. The tap also controls the flow into the UltraStream, which, in turn, affects the output alkalinity of the water. When you install your UltraStream, adjust the tap until you have around 1 litre of water output per minute. To get to the […]
The base of the UltraStream aligns with the ON/OFF lever of the inlet tap. Originally, our design concept was that you could alter flow rate by swivelling the UltraStream (It works – try it out!) which in turn made the base swivel. However we found that it also caused some confusion. Users would swivel the […]
In our design of the Ultrastream we wanted to – where possible – reduce waste of materials. We really wanted a stainless steel outer sleeve for strength and cleanliness, but didn’t want to throw it away with each filter change, so we had our engineers create a removable sleeve. It’s a tight fit, and so […]
The value in keeping long hoses comes when you are down on your knees replacing your Ultrastream filter. With long hoses it’s easy because you can remove the whole unit and perform the change on the bench above. With short hoses, you have to reach into the undersink spave to remove hoses. Not fun.
An UltraStream filter will last 12 months – depending, as always, on source water conditions and use. Our 12-month recommendation is based on a family of 4, who use about 2.1 gallons per day (8 glasses / 65 fluid oz each) for drinking and cooking. If you use less, your filter may last longer. More […]
Yes. Through lengthy research and development, the UltraStream uses the world’s best-activated alumina media, removing 78% of Fluoride throughout the life of the filter. Review or download our lab test results. Up to 95% of Fluoride can be removed when the UltraStream is installed with an additional Fluoride Pre-filter.
