Filters serve as protection element of the drinking water installation to keep following valves free from flushed in particles like rust and sand.

Why a filter?

Particles can enter the domestic water distribution network via the building connection pipe due to repairs and renovations on the public supply network. Entrained particles such as lime, rust and sand can impair the function of the valves installed in the drinking water installation.


We recommend replacing the filter insert every 6 months.

Contact your plumber for filter insert replacement.
