Kinetico AquaTaste MACgaurd 7000 Filter Replacement Cartridge

To ensure you have great tasting drinking water at your fingertips, you will need to change your Kinetico AquaTaste MACguard 7000 Filter Cartridge when the indicater tells you its time to order a new cartridge and then automatically shuts off. As with all of Kinetico’s drinking water filters, changing the cartridge is just a quick twist off/twist on – it’s that simple!


One of the biggest benefits for using a drinking water filter system is the fact that you can use Replacement Cartridges, which saves you time and money. In the UK we have some of the best quality tap water in the world. However, because water is a natural solvent, it can absorb impurities such as chlorine, bacteria and lead on its way to the tap. These absorbed impurities can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the water and its taste and odour, making it even more important to choose the right drinking water system and replacement filter for you and your family.

Features and Benefits

  • Removes unwanted taste & odour problems in water
  • Removes sediment & chlorine from your drinking water
  • Quick disconnect (twist and remove), sanitary filter cartridges

This cartridge (Part No. 9306B) is designed for the reduction of taste, odour, and aesthetic chlorine. This replacement component is for use exclusively in the Kinetico Drinking Water Filter Model 7000 and as a postfilter in Drinking Water Systems.



NOTE: In systems with MACguard (Drinking Water Filter Model 7000) The MACguard filter automatically shuts off/reduces flow to a fine trickle after 1,892 litres (500 gallons) of water have been processed. Cartridge replacement is required to restore water flow. In Drinking Water Systems without MACguard you should replace your prefilter and postfilter cartridges at least once per year. Installation must comply all applicable laws and regulations.
