I got a Deltec D-D RO filter.
Problem, the attachment that comes supplied, is supposed to cut into a copper pipe. Where I want to install it I have steel pipes.
And on the docs they have a garden tap adaptor as optional.
where can i get it.

You go go to a place selling Purifiers, you unscrew the tap. and add this between the tap and pipe, they pretty cheap as well.

Nope,
It has a fitting that goes around the copper pipe, and it screws in a little sharp pin that actually punctures the copper pipe. It has a small rubber seal around the pin.
Else I need a fitting that have the collar and nut for the thin white pipe on the one side and that can connect to standard fittings on the other side.

Riaan - that should work 100% - it's not mean for copper pipes as such. It's an "add-in" adaptor. I think it is referred to as a "Vampire clamp". It literally "bites into" a pipe, leaching the water into the RO piping....

Basically - what you can do - get either hose-pipe, or the builders "flexi-pipe" (not sure what they call it - it's that brown semi-flexible builders piping/plumbing pipe that the builders use these days, instead of copper pipes?)

Just clamp this clamp around the pipe, and make a hole in the pipe.... let the water "leach out"....

OK, had a second look at Sunburst photo. That will work. But where can I get it?
