Buttress Threads provide superior sealing and higher burst ratings than the Acme Threads found on most housings. Because of this, Pentek introduced their line of 3G Housings that feature buttress threads. We also carry housings from Watts/Flowmatic & Kemflo that utilize buttress threads.

Everpure systems include a .5 GPM flow restrictor fitting that should be installed in the outlet port of the head. The fitting limits the flow of water that can go through the filter to .5 GPM.
To increase the flow to 1 GPM to match the flow rate of the MAF Cartridge, the .5 GPM fitting must be replaced with a 1 GPM fitting. The MAF cartridge will work with the .5 GPM flow restrictor, but the flow will be limited to .5 GPM. It is only necessary to replace this fitting if you desire an increase in your flow rate.
It is possible that the flow restrictor may be installed on the inlet port, however this is not recommended. If upon removing the fitting from the outlet, if it is not found to have a flow restrictor in the fitting (usually stainless steel), remove the inlet fitting and see if the flow restrictor was installed on the inlet side.
It is recommended that the flow restrictor be installed on the outlet port to prevent the small opening from becoming clogged with sediment from the untreated water.
Fitting grips before it seals. Ensure tube is pushed into the tube stop.
Push the tube into the fitting, to the tube stop. The collet (gripper) has stainless steel teeth which hold the tube firmly in position while the O-ring provides a permanent leak-proof seal.
Pull on the tube to check that it is secure. It is a good practice to test the system prior to leaving site and/or before use.
To disconnect, ensure the system is depressurized before removing the tube. Push in collet squarely against face of fitting. With the collet held in this position, the tube can be removed. The fitting can then be re-used.

In 2011 Congress enacted the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act to amend the Safe Drinking Water Act’s section regarding the use and introduction into commerce of lead pipes, plumbing fittings or fixtures, solder and flux. The Act established a prospective effective date of January 4, 2014, which provided a three year timeframe for affected parties to transition to the new requirements. All of the metal fixtures and fittings sold by H2O Distributors are compliant with this act.

SharkBite brass push-to-connect fittings create a seamless and easy transition between different types of pipe materials. No tools are required and the fittings can be even installed in wet lines. The fitting can be rotated after installation, so you can install without having to worry about how it’s positioned. SharkBite fittings are also approved for behind the wall and underground installations. If the fitting is being installed for underground use, wrap with silicone self-adhesive tape before burying.
To get started, identify the pipe material. SharkBite brass push-to-connect fittings are compatible with PEX, Copper, CPVC, PE-RT and HDPE pipe. SharkBite fittings come with a PEX stiffener pre-loaded into the fitting for PEX, PE-RT and HDPE. The PEX stiffener does not need to be removed for Copper or CPVC applications.
Be sure the pipe is free of scratches or debris and cut the pipe as cleanly and squarely as possible. If you are working with copper pipe, use a deburr tool or sand paper to remove any sharp edges or burrs on the pipe. Failing to deburr the pipe properly can compromise the fitting.
Use your SharkBite Deburr & Gauge Tool to measure and mark the insertion depth on your pipe.
Push the fitting to the insertion mark you just made on the pipe. Now, turn on the water and check the connection.
Unlike other fittings, SharkBite brass push-to-connect fittings can be removed and re-used if changes are necessary. To remove the fitting, use a SharkBite Disconnect Clip or Disconnect Tongs. To use the Disconnect Clip, snap it on to the pipe and pull up to the release collar. Press the release collar using the Disconnect Clip and pull the pipe from the fitting. To use the Disconnect Tongs, slide the tongs over the fitting and the pipe. Squeeze the tongs to press the fitting’s release collar and pull the pipe from the fitting. The SharkBite Universal brass push-to-connect fitting is ready to re-use.

The following warranty is effective from the date of installation or 60 days after shipment, whichever date comes first.
A working pressure reducing valve must be installed in front of any water treatment equipment!
The warranty does not include shipping or installation charges if incurred.
The warranty on the system is effective when the system is functioning under normal operating conditions. Any variation in normal operation that may cause the unit to malfunction will void the warranty. Examples include if a pressure reduction valve fails (or is not installed) causing the system to be exposed to high pressure, exposure to freezing temperatures, etc.
