    Dirty mains water?

    the pods on my RO prefilters are clear so you can see how they are doing,
    just swapped out another 10" prefilter 3rd or 4th i think so far...?

    10" chlorplus and coconut carbon blocks still reducing chlorine below 0.01ppm so they are lasting well currently at 82,000ltrs
    but the sediment prefilter i'm having to change at about every 20,000 ltrs.

    is my mains water especially dirty?
    how often do you need to change yours?

    sediment filter has dirt about 3/4's of the way though...

    Stunning Kitchen mate.

    Here's my kitchen as of today, admittedly its not quite the same standard as yours but at least I've left room to fit a pond lol.
    I bought a tap with 3 outlets, one of which for filtered water but the filters that come with it are £35 each and last 6 Months, so in 6 Months time I will be replacing it with a 3 pod which will greatly increase water flow, filter the water to a higher standard, and be much cheaper.

    its looking good mate, nice big space too!

    doing the same re the filters samsung want £30 a pop every 6 months.
    i'll just get a single 10" pod with a sediment/carbon combined block.

    looks like you had a good few downlighters to fit.

    don't forget the wiring for the under counter lights, make the worktop space much brighter

    which kitchen company you using?
    i went with DIY kitchens as they worked out less than half the price of magnet/ howdens/ wickes ect...
    went for Linwood white solid oak painted with contrasting natural lancaster oak interior units.

    All electrics and gas are sorted and I created 2x 16amp spare ways from the CU for the ovens.

    Also all wiring for under cabinet lighting is in place.

    Kitchen from benchmarx, comes preassembled.

    Great looking kitchen. Here mine . I use the filters that came with the range fridge freezer. And replace when the light on the fridge tells me to replace them. Which last time was about 11 months.
    Nice taste though. Very hard water

    Cheers Fred.

    I'll post a picture even it's finished. Never done a kitchen before so do have professional help on this one for the fittings, gas and radiator pipe work, and a plasterer booked for 2 days.
