The refill is the part that filters the water – it’s the only piece you’ll need to replace every 3-6 months to prevent the build-up of substances and blockage of the filter.
The filter removes 99.9% of bacteria, chlorine (the cause of the unpleasant taste), sand, rust and sediments, lead, mercury, salmonella, legionella, pesticides, herbicides, medication waste, nitrates and other substances > 0.01-0.1μm (micrometres)
The refills, use 4-stage Ultra-Advanced Microfiltration technology to filter more than 100 substances from tap water while retaining the essential minerals in the original water.
Replace the refill with a new one 3 months after its first use. To do so, unscrew the used refill and screw on a new one.

What are the advantages of TAPP 1 UF vs other water filters?

TAPP 1 UF is the only independently tested and certified faucet water filter for Nigeria*. It provides clean tasty tap water at a cost that is much lower than bottled water or reverse osmosis filters.

Other advantages include

  • Higher flow-rate of 2-4 L / min vs 0.2 L / min for gravity filters and about 1 L / min for most RO filters
  • Easy installation without the need for a professional plumber
  • Easy to maintain and change the cartridges
  • Doesn’t waste any water
  • Designed and developed in Europe with some of the most stringent health standards in the world

* Don’t take our word for it. Ask other filter manufacturers if they can provide you with a certificate.

What is Ultrafiltration?

Ultrafiltration is filtration of praticles less than one micrometer. This includes bacteria, viruses and other nanoparticles. TAPP 1 UF is one of the first water filters to provide ultrafiltration in a compact faucet filter format thanks to the patented nanofiber technology. No other filter this size removes as many contaminants including bacteria as TAPP 1 UF.

How does TAPP 1 UF Ultrafiltration filter compare to Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filtered technology has been the only choice in many countries up until recently. In theory RO filters can remove 99% or more of contaminants from tap water including bacteria, heavy metals and other bad substances. But not all RO filters are created equal. The more expensive ones can have membranes that reduce contaminants by 99.9% whereas cheaper products may be more like 80%. Therefore it’s critical that the RO filter you are considering buying provides independent testing and certifications for their claims.

TAPP 1 UF reduces bacteria by 99.9% thanks to the advanced ultrafiltration technology combined with high water pressure from the faucet. This is as good as any RO filter.

How do I know if my faucet/tap at home is compatible with the filter?

We guarantee that our system is compatible with 95% of round threaded taps. The non-compatible commercially available taps are shown below: img-wrap


Our filters are able to filter the tap water in all areas of Nigeria that have access to public tap water or a water well unless heavily contaminated by industrial waste. Our ultrafiltration technology removes over 100 water contaminants, among them chlorine (the main cause of tap water’s unpleasant taste), bacteria, microplastics, lead, nitrates and nitrites (only measurable using special lab equipment).

    I’ve always avoided drinking the tap water in Lagos. Since installing TAPP 1 UF it taste great and I feel safe for my whole family to drink it. We save money and don’t have to carry home lots of bottles of water every week. The product is a small piece of magic.

    Good water filter. This is designed and developed in Europe with a good customer service and a mission statement to help reduce plastic in the world. It’s independently tested for Nigeria by Cotecna. Filtered water taste is like bottled water.

    I installed it for my home in Abuja to save money. Was easy to install and taste and water quality is better than expected. Would be good if I could get the water cold as well. Maybe you could connect it to a cooling device?
