Whole House Water Filters

Even though installing a whole house water filter is more expensive, you won’t need to worry about the water quality in any one area of your house. Every three to six months, a whole house water filter needs to be replaced.

Only a reverse osmosis (RO) water system can deliver completely safe drinking water. Whole home water filters will make your water safer to drink. You will still have some protection from your whole-house filter, which is an improvement over tap water that hasn’t been treated.

The optimal location for a whole-house water filter is typically adjacent to the main water shut-off valve, which is typically found in a basement or, if you don’t have a basement, on the outside of your home in a utility closet or other similar area.

It needs routine maintenance, just as many important items. Point-of-use filters have a shorter lifespan than whole-house water filters, but some of the parts will eventually need to be changed.

The following lifespans are typical for whole-house water filters: Three to six months is the pre-filter. 12 months for a carbon filter. Post-Filter: A Year or More.

Water supply goes through the filter at a specific speed, which could lower water pressure. You can see a drop in water pressure if you are running your dishwasher, laundry, and shower all at once.

It is best to use a point-of-entry filter system (where your water pipe enters your house), These systems provide safe water for drinking, cooking, and bathing as well as for cleaning and other tasks. Some VOCs can be eliminated using activated carbon filters.

Undersink Filter Or Countertop

Every four to six months, filters used in commercial settings should be replaced. Every six to twelve months, filters in residential settings should be updated. Membranes, additional alkalisers, and reverse osmosis only need to be replaced every two or four years, respectively.

Cleaner, better-tasting drinking water can be provided via undersink water filters in the conventional manner: from a spout. They are more efficient than common refrigerator filters and water filter pitchers at removing lead, chlorine, and other pollutants.

The best undersink filtration system should suit the user’s space, capacity, and installation needs while providing easy access to clean water. Other things to consider while shopping include types and levels of filtration, water flow and pressure, odor removal, and water waste.

Countertop filter systems does not reduce pressure.

Fridge Filter

Every 6 months the fridge filter should be replaced.

The majority of refrigerators contain an indication light that will let you know when to change your filter. This occurs on average every six months. Water filters maintain the freshness of your water; if you discover that your water tastes strange, it’s probably time to change the filter.

Your HVAC system’s disposable filters, however, aren’t designed to shed water after becoming wet. Over time, the moisture the filter holds in can promote the growth of mould, and your HVAC system could disperse the mould spores throughout the rest of your house.

Shower Filter Solution

Is primarily designed to reduce chlorine

The majority of shower filters we provide are approved to process water at a rate of 2.5 gallons per minute, which is the same flow rate as the majority of conventional shower heads.

Filter media is NSF approved the Sprite High Output shower filter uses a 50/50 blend of Chlorgon and KDF. The KDF addresses free chlorine neutralisation while freeing up the Chlorgon to reduce certain types of combined chlorine.

Shower filter cartridges must be replaced at least once every 12 months. If the maker of your shower filter recommends changing it every three months but you forget or are lazy, you should actually change the cartridge at least once a year.

Caravan Filter

Caravan filters typically last 4 to 6 months on average, whereas hose filters need to be replaced after 1 to 3 months, making hose filters better suitable for sporadic or short-term use.

Sediment, rust, algae, bad taste, odour, chlorine, cysts parasites, giardia, cryptosporidium, bacteria, scale, heavy metals, fluoride or softening are just some of the contaminants that can be removed. Some water filters are better than others at filtering out these different contaminants.

A micron rating is the size of the particles that a water filter is capable of removing. 1 micron is equal to 1/1000th of a millimetre. Therefore a 5 micron filter will remove contaminants that are 0.005mm and larger.

The life of a filter is totally dependent on the quality of the water you’re filtering. The more contaminated it is, the faster your filter will become blocked and the sooner it will need cleaning or replacing.

For pre-filtering water that will be used in the shower, for laundry, or for individuals who anticipate encountering exceptionally murky water, a sediment filter system is the ideal option.

Coffee & Brewing

For hygienic and health reasons, filter cartridges should be replaced every 12 months.

Coffee and espresso filters,  made especially with coffee and espresso brewing applications in mind are among the greatest solutions for filtering the water in your coffee shop. These systems remove impurities like chlorine and silt while guarding against scale buildup on your brewing equipment.  These filters are available in a wide range of designs, with some having half-micron ratings that can lower cysts and high turbidity. Others use exclusive buffering substances to prevent the pH from falling too much below neutral.

Reverse osmosis water should not be used to make coffee. The minerals that give coffee its characteristic flavour and release the diverse flavour profiles from the coffee grinds are absent from reverse osmosis water.

A suitable filter system has to be well maintained to be able to keep up with the high usage demands in commercial settings.

Due to fewer pollutants, filtered water typically tastes better than plain tap water. As a result, you can enjoy better-tasting tea and coffee, as well as less limescale build-up in your appliances. Additionally, the dishes you prepare will have richer flavours for you to savour.
