1: MEASURE

your current flow rate with one of our easy to use flow bags

2: UNSCREW

the end housing of the tap (you might need one of our special tools or a wrench if it’s tight)

3: REMOVE

the housing, discard the old filter if one was installed and clean away any limescale

4: CHECK

the components of your new tap aerator; the housing, the regulator, and a washer

5: ASSEMBLE

the regulator into the housing and loosely place the washer on top

6: SCREW BACK ONTO THE TAP

being careful not to over-tighten, then turn the tap on and check for leaks

7: SEE HOW MUCH YOU’RE SAVING!

Use your flow bag again to measure the new flow rate and see how much water you’re saving
