All filters are not created equal. That's immediately obvious when you see the advantages of the HYDRONIX ICF-10Q. Designed to be installed directly in the water supply line, the Quick Connect fittings make that process virtually tool free. Name an appliance or application where you want filtered water and where there is a 1/4 inch water line, and you've named a place where this filter can be quickly installed. Having filtered water wherever you want it has never been easier. This filter has a 1/4" quick connect inlet and outlet.
