Step #1 - Remove the faucet aerator by turning it clockwise.

Step #2 - Check the Faucet Aerator threads. If your faucet Aerator threads are the same as the Diverter Valve, screw the Diverter directly on to your faucet. If the aerator threads are different than the Diverter Valve, the adapter kit will be required. If necessary, screw in the adapter into the Faucet.

Step #3 - Insert the end of the white tube from the Faucet Diverter into the quick-connect fitting at the base of the filter canister.

 

Step #4 - Now that you have connected your CT-1 to the Faucet you need to purge the air from the system. Turn on the cold water then pull out the Diverter control button and water will run through the CT-1. Note - You may hear some noise as air is being purged from the CT-1 and the first few glasses of water run through the unit may be a dark color due to carbon fines. Run water through your unit until it is clear of carbon fines.

Watts Premier wants to make sure you are aware just because you cannot taste it, does not mean that it is not there. Contaminants such as Lead, Chromium and Arsenic are undetectable to the taste. Additionally, over time if you do not replace the filters, other bad tastes and odors will be apparent in your drinking water. It is important to change out your filters at the recommended intervals as indicated below. When replacing the filters, pay special attention to any cleaning instructions. If you have any questions throughout the process you can contact us at 1-800-752-5582 or email us at WeCare@WattsWater.com and we will get back with you as soon as possible.
