Can I change the HiTAC filter myself? Maintenance

The HiTAC® filter inside the boiling water tank improves the taste of the water. This carbon water filter removes contaminants and impurities from your water. The carbon absorbs chlorine, certain pesticides and organic pollutants, improves taste and eliminates odours and discolouration.

Depending on the quality of the water in your area, the filter should be changed approximately every 3-5 years. Depending on the type of Quooker tank you have, you may be able to change this filter yourself. We provide step by step instructions and tools with the filter. Alternatively we can arrange for a service visit from one of our experienced engineers (a call out fee applies).

Self-servicing the EQ Tanks (for use with the Nordic and Fusion range of taps) is not so straightforward and we recommend an engineer's visit.

You can order the filter from our service department via or 0161 768 5900 (select option 3 for Service). To check if your tank is self-serviceable, please have your serial number to hand (starting VC or CC on the side of the tank).

Please note that the internal HiTAC® filter is not a limescale filter. For more information on how to manage limescale, please refer to the corresponding question in our FAQs: What maintenance does a Quooker require?
