IMPORTANT: ENSURE THAT THE WATER SUPPLY IS SWITCHED OFF BEFORE DISCONNECTING THE FILTER CANISTERS FROM THEIR WATER PIPES.

Some canisters have a push-on attachment, which you'll need to hold in, in order to release it from the pipe.

Insert the pipe into the nozzle of the new canister, and check that it's held securely in place.

Other canisters have a screw-on attachment, which will need to be unscrewed in order to release it from the pipe. The new canister should then just screw onto the pipe.

Before starting to use the new water canisters, you should first run some water through the pipes to clear out any dust.

To prevent seal gaps warm it up with a hair dryer and gently stretch the seal, this will set into its new position when closed and left to cool.
