Important Notice - If you are seeking to have this tap with a water softener in order to have softened hot and cold water and the undersink Brita Filter coming from a hard/non-softened supply, then this tap is NOT suitable. You need to choose an alternative Brita tap from the WD range (i.e. the Marena, Talori, Dolce) all of which have three distinct hose connections, whereas this tap has only two connections and the cold water connection feeds the filter. Of course you can still have softened water running to hot, but not cold. However, the UK regulations state that sodium levels must not exceed 200 mg/l and a water softener adds usually around 140 mg/l. So if your starting point is very low (i.e. less than 60 mg/l, which is often the case in hard water areas) then there is no issue with running a soft water supply into the Brita filter (which actually will extend the life of the filter from around 3 months to around 6 months). You can download your water quality report from your water company's website. The choice is always yours.
