Product Manual (PDF)

Watts Premier has many different options for you when it comes to replacing your Filters. We offer the Filters individually or in a Filter Kit in order to fit your needs. See all of the different stages below for your UF-3 Filtration System to locate the Filter or Filter Kit you are looking for

  • Individual Stages of Your UF-3 Filtration System

    Stage #1 - Five Micron Sediment Filter (105311) that traps sediment and other particulate matter like dirt, silt and rust which affect the taste and appearance of your water. Note - Recommended Change Every 6 Month.

    Stage #2 - LVOC (Lead and Volatile Organic Compound) Carbon Block Filter (105371) reducing lead as well as harmful Volatile Organic Chemicals (See performance data sheet for complete list of VOC’s). It is estimated that VOC’s are present in ⅕ of the nation’s water supplies. These water contaminants can enter ground water from a variety of sources including localized use of herbicides and pesticides, gasoline or oil spills, leaking underground fuel tanks, septic system cleaners, and chemicals used in the dry-cleaning industry. Note - Recommended Change Every 12 Months.

    Stage #3 - UF Membrane (UF Hollow Fiber Technology Membrane). (105321) Ultra filtration is a membrane filtration process which uses standard home water pressure to push water through its semi permeable membrane. Suspended particles and materials of high molecular weight are unable to pass through the 0.1 Micron (Nominal) UF membrane, allowing only fresher cleaner water and dissolved minerals to pass through. Historically this separation process has been used in large municipal water treatment plants and hospitals; however through advances in technology it is now available to you as a powerful under sink water filtration plant in your home. Note - Recommended Change Every 12 Months.
