the very latest innovation in point-of-use water
filtration and purification. Your WHOLLY WATER ®
Appliance was engineered to be the most
effective, durable and convenient drinking water
treatment device available. It will provide
years of sparkling, clean drinking and cooking
water "ON DEMAND" for about a penny a gallon.
This product is for use

standards. For cold water use only.

We have an optional
0.5-micron Ceramikx solid carbon block post
filter for unpotable water. The post filter is
installed after the WHOLLY WATER ®
Appliance. Email us for those instructions.

no effect on water hardness.
If you suspect
your water pressure is over 60 psi, we strongly
recommend a water pressure regulator. You are
responsible for purchasing a water pressure
regulator if your water pressure exceeds 60 psi.
Please note that on public water supply, water
pressure may go up very high at night.
Failure to install regulator will void
warranty and may
adversely affect performance of Appliance.

sure point is at least 4 inches
from the corner.
Place tip of carbide drill directly onto point
selected. Then, before drill rotation, firmly
press downward until a slight grinding sound is
audible. This sound will indicate that you have
fractured the porcelain, which will prevent the
drill from walking. Begin drilling while
applying firm, downward pressure. Be very
careful when drill is breaking through. Drill
may have a tendency to grab.
If firm pressure is
not applied during the initial drilling
operation, progress will be retarded and
difficult. Inadequate pressure will also cause
unnecessary wear on the drill. Strong pressure

This is a normal, temporary condition common to
ALL filtration devices containing carbon. After
backwashing for 10 minutes, return the “IN” and
“OUT” inserts to their normal filtering
positions. (Feed water line (black) to “IN”
coupling and faucet line (blue) to “OUT”
coupling.) Turn faucet ON again and allow water
to run for an additional 5 minutes to reset the
media beds and flush the lines.
Your appliance is
now ready for service. You WHOLLY WATER ® unit
is a heavy-duty APPLIANCE; not a typical carbon
filter. It contains nearly 12 pounds of
filter media. Accordingly, there will be
considerable amount of air bubbles generated as
air in the dry, multi-media beds is replaced by
water. This harmless, bubbly effervescence,
which appears to “gray” your water temporarily,
will rapidly cease with use. But can take
several days or longer.
Backwash every 3
months for 10 minutes or anytime flow rate slows
noticeably. To backwash, simply reverse the “IN”
and “OUT” inserts and turn faucet on for 10
minutes. To filter again, return the “IN” and
“OUT” inserts to their normal positions and turn
faucet on for 5 minutes to re-set the media beds
and to flush the lines.
In most instances,
you can easily connect your appliance using an
ice maker humidifier kit or equivalent parts.
Simply install a 3/8” x 1/4” tee with a shut-off

water faucet. Run 1/4” tubing to ice maker on

We send connection for a
3/8" pipe size, but also have a 1/4" connection available.
1) The filter measures 19" height, 8" diameter.
Make sure it will fit. Otherwise you may need to locate it
elsewhere, depending on your home's layout. In this event, you
can get the extra fittings to place the filter in your garage or basement, or even
the cabinet next to your sink. We may need to discuss your needs to get
you the right equipment.
2) The drinking water
filter uses it's own dedicated faucet. Normally
a pre-existing hole is used. If no hole exists, a whole can be
drilled. You may need a special drill bit for ceramic sinks/countertops. Ask
your plumber. Or, a hole can also be drilled into the countertop,
right next to the sink, as in picture.

I personally would have used the soap dispensor whole!)
