How to drill a hole for the faucet of this undersink dual carbon filtration system?
Please confirm if there is an existing hole available to install the faucet. If not, please drill a hole in accordance with the following steps. It's highly recommended to watch the YouTube video "How to Drill Faucet Holes" for a better understanding of the process. There is also a sticker for your reference to drilling the hole. Remember to wear safety glasses to protect your eyes while drilling the faucet hole.
Step 1: Choose a diamond drill bit for granite, and a carbide drill bit for stainless steel. Do not use a hammer drill on natural stone, glass, or ceramic.
Step 2: Glue the sticker on your sink or countertop, and drill a hole referring to the sticker hole size (1%").
Step 3: Make an indent with a center punch on a stainless-steel sink before drilling to help guide the bit.
Step 4: Be careful when drilling on a porcelain sink, as it can be easily chipped. Apply downward pressure firmly on the bit until you break through the surface.
Step 5: Start at the lowest speed, and hold the drill straight with firm pressure to prevent the bit from walking on the counter.
Step 6: Once you break through the surface, swirl the drill a little to apply pressure in a circle evenly.

The PP filter

Why less water flows out from my faucet?
Please check the filter life indicator. If the filter has expired, replace it immediately.
The water inlet pressure is abnormal. The normal water inlet pressure is 14.5-87psi, please check the water inlet pressure and use the filter after the pressure is normal. If the water inlet pressure is too low for a long period of time, install a booster pump before use.
The water inlet and outlet valves are not fully opened. Please check the cold water valve, feed water adapter, and faucet to ensure that they are fully opened.
The filter is blocked. If the water quality is poor, the filter may become blocked after being used for a certain period of time. It will need to be replaced. If using well water as the source, please make sure the feed water has been through a pre-filtration system
, otherwise, large particles in well water will clog the filter easily and shorten filter life.
The inlet water tubing or outlet water tubing is bent. Please check and straighten out the inlet and outlet water tubing.

The TSU can reduce the bacteria from the source water while the TSC cannot.
Can I use the Waterdrop UF filter on this undersink dual carbon filtration system?
You could not use UF filter in this TSC system. Because the logic and setting between the smart filter life reminder in TSC and TSU are different, therefore the installation of the UF replacement filter to TSC will affect your judgment of the filter's service life. We do not recommend this.
If you want to have an ultrafiltration function, please choose our TSU ultrafiltration system
