Product Overview

The Whirlpool WHEMB40 Water Purifier Filtration System is certified to reduce bacteria, viruses, lead, sediment, chlorine taste and odor, chemicals, cysts and numerous other contaminants from your drinking water supply. The Whirlpool WHEMB40 system allows your family to enjoy great tasting, safe water right at your kitchen sink. One of the major benefits of this system is that it does not waste any water during the purification process like reverse osmosis water filtration systems. Another benefit is the encapsulated filters, unlike competitive open sump models, you do not need to turn off your water supply, utilize a wrench to remove filter sumps, or mess around with replacing gross internal filters. Whirlpool's patented filter design allows you to untwist the old filters and twist on the new filters to complete a filter change saving you hassle and time. The filter reminder light shows you when it is time to change your filters. This system utilizes WHEMBF water purifier replacement filters and it is recommended to replace these filters every 6 months. System includes: dedicated filtered water faucet, WHEMBF filter set, installation fittings, color coded tubing and push-in connectors.

  • Removes bacteria, viruses, lead, sediment, chlorine taste and odor, chemicals and cysts
  • Eco-friendly system that does not waste water during the purification process
  • Ultra-ease technology - filters are encapsulated for better sanitation and ease of replacement compared to competitive open sump filters

I purchased 2 or these. The filters, faucet, 1/4 inch lines are included and a T valve to connect the water supply to the faucet and to the filter - are included. If your water inlet shut off valve and supply hose to the faucet has a different size nipple than 3/8", you may need a different T Valve than what is provided. Instructions are easily followed with great diagrams.

Good evening, my question is if you sell the faucet separately, that is the only thing i need?

Asked by Speedy September 4, 2019

Answer

If you buy the faucet separately do you already have the filter assembly? Is the filter assembly already hooked up to the water supply via a 1/4" inlet supply line? If so, do you already have an outlet line from the filter assembly that can attach to the faucet? You will still need to be able to attach the 1/4" line from the faucet to the filter. If there is a line already coming from the filter, all you need is a 1/4" splice fitting with threads, nuts, compression nut and line inserts.
