If you are wondering why I am using a water filter in Japan, you can read our post about it here.
Product Name: 三菱ケミカル・クリンスイ 蛇口直結型浄水器 クリンスイ CB073-WT
Author’s Rating: 4/5
I ordered this from Amazon, for the reasons I stated in my previous article. I got us a Mitsubishi Chemical Water Filter because it is cheap for a high quality water filter.
This filter, with 2 free filter cartridges, costs about 2719 yen and will last us for 6 months. This would cost us only about 15 yen per day. Pretty nifty compared to the 50 – 100 yen 2 liter purified water bottles out there.
You can get yours here if you have the following type of faucets:
This filter is not fit for all types of faucets. It cannot accommodate the following:
You don’t have to worry about the attachments for the acceptable faucets because it’s included in the package.
Our faucet has external threads where originally, an aerator/sprayer was attached.
I am learning Japanese from school now but it’s not enough for me to get by in installing this filter so I just relied on my ability to connect things together. LOL.
First, figure out what type of connector you need.
Next, unscrew the white connector from the filter.
Next, put your faucet connector on the underside of the filter connector and attach to the faucet.
Next, attach the filter to the filter connector (now attached to your faucet). Make sure it is tight and secure. I used no tools, just my hands. You can tighten the grip to the faucet by moving your filter. 😉
Next, attach the cartridge. I used the sticker in the box to indicate my installation date and replacement date. Although, the bars in the indicator screen will tell you when to replace the filter cartridge. I’m just thorough that way. Plus, I want to use the stickers (ahaha).
Finally, run the tap (with the droplet water sign, not the spray sign) for a couple of seconds before enjoying your oishii water.
