    Hi, thank you for your response.
    I emailed FRANKE and they said they are going to list a spanner which is not on their website yet but would be cost about £15.
    If I use rubber strap wrench to open it, do you think it might open it as I don't intend to damage it and run into to another problem.
    Sorry to bore anybody reading this as it is steep to pay £15.00 for spanner whereby the taps and hot water system cost around £800 beside filter costs about £39.95 every 6 months.
     
  5. The filter cartridge housing,sometimes called a sump.Is designed to be unscrewed by hand just grip it with both hands and turn anti clockwise it will unscrew.The actual filter cartridge is usually also screwed,again turn anti clockwise. :idea: Make sure water is turned off.

    There is also a chance the sump has been over tightened during installation,just needs a good turn with both hands or use a boa constrictor strap wrench.

    :rolleyes:

    You need a man with a strong right hand, try and find a married man. His right hand will be much stronger.
