Installation Instructions



3-Step Faucet Connection Verification

Step 1.

If your faucet is a "pull out" spray style... please first ensure you can unscrew the aerator (see here) to expose the threads.  *For faucets where you cannot unscrew the aerator with a wrench, an aerator removal tool may be necessary.  Please confirm this with the manufacturer of your faucet.

Step 2.

After you unscrew the aerator, measure the diameter of the thread on the faucet, and order the right adapter below if needed:

a). 23.8mm (15/16" Diameter) - Male, Extended Length

b). 20.6mm (13/16" Diameter) - Male, Extended Length

c). 19.0mm (0.75" Diameter) - Female, Chicago Style Faucets

d). 18.5mm (0.72" Diameter) - Male                                                              

If you happen to have such a faucet type where the aerator cannot be removed, you may then want to consider our Undercounter Model: ULTRA-UC which comes with it's own dedicated faucet; or if you still wish for the Countertop system, then another option is to change your kitchen faucet to one that has a removable aerator.

Step 3.

Our Diverter screws on in place of the aerator and redirects the water to the countertop filter.
