|The Modern Tap|
|The Traditional Tap|
The Energy Plus Water Filter can be supplied with one of two taps – either the sleek, minimalist modern tap or a more traditional model, depending entirely upon your personal tastes.
The Energy Plus has four cartridges, each of which plays a unique part in filtering and enriching your drinking water. They are:
1. A special ultra filtration membrane cartridge. This cartridge filters down to 0.1 micron and removes silt, rust, colloids, proteins, bacteria, viruses, pathogenic protozoa and cysts from the water. It is a physical barrier that does not use any chemicals.
2. A multi-stage filter that uses a range of different filter media to clean and purify your water. In this filter, the water firstly flows through a media bed of special resin that has a high affinity for fluoride, lead and arsenic. It removes fluoride and metals through a combination of adsorption and chemical reaction with the media. The media can be used over a wide pH range.
The water then flows through ion exchange resins, further reducing heavy metal levels and water hardness. It then goes through a bed of a special high-purity blend of two dissimilar metals, copper and zinc. This is a major advance in water treatment technology, working on both electro-chemical and spontaneous oxidation reduction principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost completely oxidised.
This media is a significant advance in water treatment technology, using a combination of electroplating and spontaneous oxidation reduction principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidised. This results in at least 99% removal of chlorine from the water. Other contaminants such as iron and hydrogen sulphide are oxidised and plated onto the surface of the media. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium and aluminium are removed from the water as a result of the electrochemical process. They are attracted to the media surface, much like a magnet. The media inhibits bacterial growth and reduces limescale. Next, the water flows through a bed of ion exchange resins, which further reduce any dissolved heavy metals and reduce water hardness.
Then the water passes through granulated activated carbon (GAC). The GAC used is a combination of both coconut shell and catalytic GAC to give a greater width of pollutant removal. GAC absorbs chlorine, THM's, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds such as benzene and other organic contaminants.
3. The 3rd filter cartridge is composed of a combination of three different types of bioceramic natural mineral ball. These advanced bioceramics alkalize the water, change its oxidation reduction potential, lend it antioxidant properties and improve the water structure. They also have an antibacterial effect, preventing the growth of harmful bacteria in the filter cartridge. Before the water enters this 3rd cartridge, it will have a slightly acidic pH (as do many water filter systems). The pH is typically raised to a pH level of 8.5 to 9.5, the ideal range for everyday drinking water.
4. The final-stage filter uses a combination of bioceramics to improve the structure of the water. These bioceramics use minerals which emit very low levels of subtle far infrared energy. This helps to improve water structure and absorbability of the water. Suitable structured water with a negative oxidation reduction potential supplies the body with beneficial negative ions. The water is finally polished by going through an additional stage with granulated activated carbon to remove any unpleasant taste or odour.
The exhaustive 4-stage process not only creates water that has undergone high levels of filtration, but also has good energy through the effect of the bioceramic media.
The filters used in your Energy Plus Water Filter need to be replaced every year to ensure that they are functioning at peak efficiency, and to make sure that the beneficial properties of the minerals do not wear out.
Fitting the Energy Plus Water Filter is a relatively simple job. Aside from cutting a hole in the rim of your sink or countertop for the tap, all you need to do is connect the existing feed pipe of your cold water tap, and then connect the pipework supplied from the filter to the drinking water tap, as per the diagram below:
Should you require more detailed instructions, simply click the 'Installation' tab above.
The Energy Plus Water Filter measures 40 x 40 x 15 cm. It fits easily under your sink without taking up too much space. No electrical connection is necessary. It comes complete with one of the drinking water taps shown.
You can order your Energy Plus Water Filter using the button below, or by calling us on 01764 662111. We'll also be more than happy to help should you require any further information in respect to fitting or installation.
Once the Energy Plus Water Filter System has been fitted underneath your sink (as per the instructions on the 'Installation' tab), its special water tap can be used in lieu of your normal tap when pouring water for:
In order to ensure the Energy Plus can properly alkalize, filter and enrich your water, you must take care to replace the filters on an annual basis by following these instructions:
Replacing the Filters in Your Energy Plus
The Energy Plus Water Filter has four cartridges. Cartridges require changing on an annual basis. To replace cartridges:
Replacement of Top Horizontal Post Filter 4
IMPORTANT: Before first use, run water through filter 10 minutes to prepare unit for use. Be sure to allow a minimum space of 50mm under the filter for removing the housing, to change the cartridge.

The Energy Plus Water filtration system uses a number of different components to filter, clean and energize your water. These components include:
How to Install the Energy Plus Undersink Water Filter
Step 1: Choose location.
Position your filter in the cabinet nearest the cold water line, which is normally on the right side of your faucet, beneath the sink. Turn water off.
CAUTION: Water filter must be installed on cold water line only.
Step 2: Choose a faucet location.
The faucet may be installed into the hole normally used for your sink sprayer. If you have a sink sprayer installed and plan to use it, or you do not have an existing hole, you will have to drill a hole for the faucet.
If you are drilling a new hole, try to place it as near to the sink as possible – either on the metal lip if there is 40mm of clearance, or on the sideboard next to your sink if there is not.
The faucet will fit through a 12mm hole or larger. For drilling through a metal sink, first make a small indentation with a punch where you want to install the faucet. (CAUTION: WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN DRILLING.)
Step 3: Insert faucet.
Remove the hardware from the faucet stem for later use, then slide the large chrome plated washer onto the stem, followed by the large rubber washer. Place the faucet stem through the hole in the rubber washer. Slide the large metal washer and nut onto the faucet stem. Tighten the nut to secure the faucet in place.
Step 4: Install water supply connector/selftapping valve.
Note: Always check the local plumbing codes before tapping into a water line.
WARNING: WATER SUPPLY PRESSURE MUST NOT EXCEED 100 PSI. Failure to set correct pressure could result in leakage/bursting of unit.
a. Assemble saddle-tapping valve on tube. Hold back plate and saddle valve against tubing in a position directly each other. Tighten screw enough so that the saddle valve and back plate are held securely against tubing.
b. Connect source water feed tubing to valve body using compression fitting. Slide nut and sleeve onto tubing (in that order). Install plastic tubing insert into white tubing. Install tube with insert and sleeve into valve body. Thread compression nut onto valve body. Tighten. Turn saddle-tapping valve handle clockwise until it is firmly seated and piercing lance is fully extended.
c. Attach tubing between the outlet connection of the filter and the faucet tap. Unscrew compression nut from outlet fitting. Remove red cap. Slide compression nut of outlet fitting over tubing and push tubing through until tube stop. Tighten compression nut onto connection fitting.
CAUTION: Do not open valve until system is activated. Turn on cold water supply.
Check saddle-tapping valve installation for leaks.
Step 5: Connect tubing.
Connect tubing from cold water line (water supply line) to the inlet of the water filter. Allow enough slack in the tubing so the unit can be easily removed for filter cartridge. Measure and cut the end of tubing square.
1. Unscrew compression nut counter clockwise from connection fitting.
2. Screw male threads of quick connect fitting into the inlet threads of water filter.
3. Slide compression nut onto the end of tubing. Push tubing through to the tube stop inside quick connect fitting.
4. Screw compression nut onto quick connect fitting. Tighten securely. Do not crossthread. The system is now connected.
Step 6: Test the system
Open the new tap and turn on the mains feed slowly. Check that there are no leaks in the connecting pipework, or at the filter cartridge connections.
If any leaks are present, immediately turn off the mains feed and double check all connections.
