Does anyone know of physical stores in Auckland stocking F&P water filter cartridges? I haven't had any joy with the likes of Noel Leeming. I'd rather go to a store and pick one up today (tick it off the to-do list) than muck around with an online order from F&P, and in any event many of the online retailers seem to ship from offshore and / or sell non-genuine filters.

We have a Bosch Fridge with chilled water dispenser.


The official filter is supposed to be replaced every 6 months and cost over $100.


We just put a third party filter in the water line and it lasts a couple of years and cost about $60.


But rather than try the appliance retailers have you tried one of the filter suppliers - just buy online and get it sent to you:


I used this place (fast and efficient service) - but not sure if they have parts listed that will suit your fridge (I am assuming thats what you have)


or there is this place


They have some filters on that page that are supposed to be F&P compatible.






water filter cartridges cost a crazy amount - something

Or, Call F&P - they are in Highbrook and may sell from there. 0800FPCARE I think.

Thanks for the replies. I got lucky at Harvey Norman who bizarrely are selling them at about $10 under RRP.
