Aquaphor Topaz has a sleek design and can be attached to almost any kitchen tap. Well, it does not have to necessarily a kitchen tap. Any tap with standard 22mm external or 24mm internal thread should do.
Carbon and Aqualen sorption filtration method is used in Aquaphor Topaz water filters. Aqualen is unique patented material developed by the Aquaphor research team. Aqualen is used in all of Aquaphor products. Topaz also contains Silver particles to ensure extra level of sanitation. Replace Topaz cartridges after every 750 Litres of filtered water or maximum 6 month of usage, whichever comes first.
A usual kitchen tap has an aerator on the tip of it. Aerators are used to help reduce water consumption and achieve a steady stream. An aerator is usually screwed to the tip of a tap. By removing the aerator (possibly with a wrench) an access can be gained to the thread. You may want to use a piece of fabric while using a wrench to prevent any scratches to the surface of an aerator. Once it is removed you can measure the diameter of the thread to be absolutely sure that it is a standard one.
Topaz water filter can then be attached to the tap instead of an aerator. Topaz already has a built-in aerator. There is also a switch that allows users to choose between filtered and usual potable water. Aquaphor Topaz filters out chlorine, phenol, heavy metals and pesticides from tap water.
Remember to use your Aquaphor Topaz filter with cold water only.
