Don’t waste your money

published

We spent 45 minutes trying to install this filter, 50 minutes late I’m writing this review with no filter attached.
My husband managed to eventually get it on but it just continued to leak.
Absolutely not worth it, now reading the reviews I wish I read these first.

The reviews are bad for a reason...

published

Instructions are terrible and difficult to follow. Would not install on my tap, even with a plumbers help. I am returning the unit without having even had a chance to use it...

Terrible

published

I bought this filter as it says on the box that it is easy to install and no plumbing required. I was unable to install it. It was not easy to install at all. I live in a house that is only 10 years old so the tap was not the problem. You would need a plumber to install this filter, so it is very misleading. I returned it. Don't waste your time with this product. I have used another brand previously that was easy to install on a kitchen tap.

I got my money back on this product

published

I gave 2 stars because I liked the chrome and the fact it could go on old taps that fit it but honestly it leaked from a tap mixer even after being installed by Bunnings correctly as it was impossible to get on with not good clear instructions. Bunnings guy sealed it well better than what we did and still leaked from the top so we returned it. Our Fawcett is low and sink small and so I found it annoying to wash dishes and fill bottles, it’s in the way. Great idea and wished it worked for us. Will add that there is a black lever underneath that you turn and push on Fawcett and tighten as we worked on the top bit only. Maybe this works better on different taps but not ours. Water I give 3 because there is tastier water out there.

Fail

published

I got this to fit up to the tap with no leaks (requires a mechanical mind, instructions are not clear although everything needed is there). However the biggest issue I have is that I tested the water for heavy metals and found it did nothing to reduce levels. I have done before and after tests and essentially there are no differences between unfiltered water and this kind of filter. I am also very suspicious that no data or information was provided about the filter and EXACTLY what it filters. This might filter visibly direct water but definitely didn't filter heavy metal particulates on a microscopic level. This is going back to Bunnings.

Leaks and has bad after-taste

published

Difficult to install. It leaks at the join to the tap and all the rubber washers don't work. Ended up tightened it too much and destroy the grooves on the tap/spout. Thinking that it was an old tap/spout so got a new tap/spout from bunnings and the water still leaks. Back to Bunning to get different size washers and tap sealant tape. After hours mucking around finally got it work albeit a tiny amount of leakage at the join. I noticed there is a strange after-taste with this filter compared to the similar Brita filter I used for many years before. Bought this one because of the cheap filter refills but after this experience I will go back to Brita when this one reaches it life-span.

Great but a bit of work

published

Got one to fit into our work kitchen eventually, the instructions aren't great and it was a little tricky to attach it to the tap. Can do with an updated instruction I suppose.
However, we could really taste the difference in the water and really hoping that its help cuts the amount of sediment that's forming in our kettle.

Perfect for the Price

published

There sure is a pattern when you read the reviews - and its about little or lack of instructions and parts not labelled clearly. However with a bit of trial and error (and patience) with fitting the different washers I was able to fit the filter perfectly. No leaks, and the water tastes great!!! would recommend if you are looking for a short term solution to filter out chlorine etc.

Useless

published

Instructions are unclear and contradictory, parts badly labelled and don’t connect together well. Had no problems finding correct adapter and washer to go into tap re was no way to attach the filter to anything from there. And if it had attached, I can’t see how it would have been leakproof since there was no washer between the parts. Something is either missing or just badly designed. Either way, it’s going straight back to Bunnings and I will be looking for an alternative from another manufacturer.

Leaks a little yes but fast, easy and cheap.

published

This filter system for me has been great but after reading all the other reviews I know why..I got my handyman to fit it! He did say it was tricky.

It leaks a bit but given that it's cheap to use and as easy as flicking a switch over, I love it. I'm lazy and this works for me

No problem. *thumbs up*

The Stefani On-Tap Purifier works great once you figure out which washers/adapters to use (it comes with a few). As long as its correctly fitted, and not over-tightened, it works perfectly. It's certainly a faster and cheaper option, if a little less elegant. Would definitely recommend it. And it comes with a filter cartridge.

So far so good - doesn't leak if you re-fit the filter

Worked..

published

Had a more expensive filter which worked for a couple of years but it did leak..this doesn't...very happy with this filter, cost less, simple to set up and filters are 60% cheaper !..UPDATE Sept 2015. Well the unit started to leak, tried to fix, no luck, bought a new cartridge, it leaked. Tried to improve seal with petroleum jelly and the top of whole unit flew off and cracked. So now without a filter again.

Do NOT Buy This!!!!!!!!

published

Like many reviews similar, this product sucks! No matter how you try to get it to fit all it does is leak. The box gives you a bunch of rubber washer seals and metal adapter opponents to fit this device to your tap. And the box say "Easy to Install" and will "Just takes a few minutes." What a crock of....... well you know what the next word is.. They don't even include a manual in with this products. All it will do, is anger you as you exhaust all the different combinations of components. Don't waste your time, unless you feel lucky and your tap just happens to be one of the few this product is intended for.


Absolute rubbish

published

Leaks constantly. Don't buy it! essentially you end up using screws into your existing sink threads. Doesn't take much to figure out that it's not going to be watertight. had 2 mates of mine try to set it up properly (to see if there was a user error) and we all had the same result.

Shame on Bunnings for continuing to sell these products. They need to do their homework...

I can't figure out how to attach this filter to my tap! Does the black filter pipe unscrew. It's very tight & I'm scared to try too hard in case I break it!

Still haven’t Answered any questions for the public. Your retailing skills are not good. Even if your products are good or bad you should still listen to people. Will not buy your product again, at least Brita company talk to their customers.

I bought the Twin Undersink filter system. Can I fit that to my current tap in my kitchen? I do not want another tap

I believe that the under sink filters have their own tap which you have to make a hole on your bench for it. I have never seen one fitted to a tap before. Ring the company and ask them if it can be done.
