This countertop unit sits on the counter and easily connects to most any kitchen faucet. A diverter valve replaces the aerator on your faucet. In the regular position, water exits straight through its own aerator. When filtered water is desired, turn on the cold water and pull out on the diverter valve knob - water is routed through the filter and out its own swivel spout. Great for apartments, dorms, RV's or travel. Spout, diverter valve, and connectors are lead-free chromed brass - NSF-approved.
