Water filter kits are easy to install There are a variety of water filter kits available in the market. The most popular are those that can be connected to a water line directly. These kits have a filter cartridge that removes chlorine and heavy metals. The cartridge also improves the taste of water and its odor. These kits come with brackets that can be mounted on the wall. They also have standard garden hose connections and vinyl tubing to be connected to the water line and the outlet pipe. The cartridges, in some of these wall-mounted filter kits, can clean up to 1,000 gallons of water. The filter cartridge can be removed after it has cleaned 1,000 gallons of water or after a year of use, whichever is first. The kit should, however be disconnected from the water supply when the house owner is going out for a long holiday. The cartridge also should be back flushed from time to time to remove impurities that may block the cartridge pores. Besides this, manufacturers also provide filter kits that can keep the existing water filters running smoothly. For instance, the water filter kit supplied by MSR includes filter housing O-Ring, piston O-Ring, inlet foam, inlet valve ball, outlet cap and silicone lubricant. The user can change these parts as and when the need arises, either himself or with the help of a trained mechanic. Similarly, the Katadyn Hiker Water Filter Field Maintenance Kit allows users to clean and lube their Hiker Microfilter. They can do this while they are on a field trip or after they return home. These kits include replacement O-rings, silicon lubricant, and cleanable filter protector. In the case of under sink water filters, the manufacturers provide a stainless steel valve that taps into the water line, plus an extra supply line that feeds a specialized faucet.
