Limitation of Liability of WFA under this warranty:

Where a warranty exists or is implied by law, WFA’s liability is limited (to the extent that it can be limited) to repair or replacement of the faulty Replaceable Element or the unit or an equivalent unit. WFA may, in its discretion, choose whether it shall repair or replace any unit or Replaceable Element or WFA may choose to pay to you the cost of replacing the Replaceable Element or the unit or the cost of having the unit repaired.

  • The purpose for which you are purchasing the unit.

You acknowledge that the quality of water supplied and your water usage rate and influent water pressure may vary seasonally or over a period of time.

In addition to this water characteristics can differ if the unit is relocated or the environment changes.

You acknowledge that WFA does not know your requirements and cannot and does not warrant that the unit is fit for the purpose for which you intend to use the unit or is appropriate for the purpose for which you intend to use the unit.

WFA does not authorize others to assume any obligation on its behalf even if you inform them of the purpose for which you intend to use this unit.

WARNING WFA does not recommend making alterations to your existing plumbing to accommodate this filter system. If you wish to modify existing plumbing you must comply with AS 3500 and use a licensed plumber. Where internal water pressure exceeds 1200 kPa a Watermark approved Pressure Limiting Valve must be installed prior to the filter system.

WARNING The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this water treatment system are not necessarily in your water supply. Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of an unknown quality without disinfection before or after the system.

IMPORTANT This filter is designed to be used with mains/city water supplies. If the incoming water is from a water tank or bore, install a suitable pre filter prior to this filter system to prolong filter cartridge life.

CAUTION Safely isolate the water supply prior to installing the filter system to avoid injury and property damage.

IMPORTANT NOTICE The WFA Filter Systems filter water down to one micron. The filter’s very fine mechanical and chemical filtering process removes chlorine, dirt, cysts and many other potential contaminants. When water is filtered so finely it can absorb part of everything it comes into contact with. This can cause taste and odour issues.

Accordingly, you may find that with new kitchen tapware the braided flex hose supplied with the new kitchen tap has a rubber internal. This rubber internal may, in some instances, cause taste and odour issues when the filtered water first comes into contact with the hose.

Should this occur then flush the filtered water through the hose over a period of time to remove taste and odour issues.
