All about me
Introducing the revolutionary Swich water filter system from Abode. This will transform your kitchen tap, new or old, into a filtered water tap delivering a constant supply of crystal clear filtered water. It is easy to install and works with your standard mixer tap. Simply turn the handle control to indicate the type of water supply that you wish to channel through the tap – giving you immediate access to both the domestic supply and then to water via the Abode Swich filter cartridge, delivering clear, refreshing results.
Installation is quick and simple. Abode has pioneered the use of push-fit pipe technology for the simply DIY installation of the filtered water diverter system. Normal domestic water passing over the activated carbon filter reduces chlorine levels and reduces sediment, dirt, dissolved metals and rust, resulting in a substantially improved water taste.

What is Water Hardness and which Swich filter do I need?
When rainwater hits the ground, it will either remain soft or reach a certain level of ‘hardness’, depending on the region. The harder the water, the more limescale it will deposit around your home. See the map illustrating the hardness in regions throughout the UK. If you live in an area with soft water, you will need to choose the soft filter Abode Swich. If you live in an area with hard water, you will need to choose the hard filter Abode Swich.
