How To Select A Whole House Water Filter

Jun 6, 2008
The use of whole house water filters is fast becoming extremely popular with homeowners.

A whole house water filter will treat every single drop of water entering your home and is the most cost effective method to give you peace of mind about the quality of your home water supply.

The whole house water filter can be configured in a wide variety of styles and price levels depending on what contaminants are in your water, your rate of water use and your budget.

One of the most popular configurations of a whole house water filter uses a dual filtration system to remove suspended solids (dirt, rust, dust etc) which will help to clarify the water.

The second filter is a carbon filter which will remove foul tastes and odors from the water.

The final portion of a quality whole house water filter is an ultraviolet (UV) light which is used to kill all bacterial and viral pathogens that may be (or may potentially get) in your water supply. These 3 portions are critical to a well designed system.

The key to understanding why all 3 parts are needed is simple. The first filter is usually very inexpensive and is the first line of defense to give you clean water - no other water treatment equipment can work properly of the water is not clear. The second filter removes the contaminants that can cause your water to taste funny and possibly smell terrible.

A quality UV system mimics nature to kill all bacterial and viral pathogens including e.coli,coliform, influenza, legionella, hepatitis, giardia, crypotosporidium and many more.

The beauty of a whole house water filter like this is that it's an economical way to clean all the water in your home using simple, widely available, proven technology. This is the same type of water filtration that most water bottling plants use specifically because it works, is simple to maintain and is very cost effective.

Typical manitenance simply means changing your filters once or twice a year and replacing your UV lamp annually. In a properly designed whole house water filter, both procedures can be accomplished in less than 5 minutes.

Homeowners can select the proper sized whole house water filter for their specific use. Manufacturers typically will make several sizes available so there will be a simple whole house water filter available for any sized household. Consider amount of water used, number of people in the home and water quality (the specific water contaminants that you may be concerned about) when choosing a whole house water filter for your home.

Be sure to work with a manufacturer that has extensive experience in manufacturing and delivering a whole house water filter that works for you. Be sure that you have easy access to customer service people (by email or phone) and that you can easily locate replacement filters and UV lamps for your system. The most reliable manufacturers and dealers will have inventory available for immediate purchase any time you need it.

There are a wide variety of whole house water filters on the market. Decide first on your concerns, water use patterns and budget. Then work with a qualified manufacturer or dealer to get the whole house
water filter that will meet all of your needs to provide safe, clean water for years to come.
