Answer: 
Usage and quality of water in your incoming water line affect the life of filter cartridges and determine when the cartridge should be changed. Cartridges should be replaced sooner if water pressure at the faucet begins to drop noticeably or if the filter fails to perform satisfactorily.

Answer: 
No, well water with high sulfates and iron will need to be treated by a water softener. This filter will only remove particles that have already precipitated out of the water.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Now! That's a water filter! Transparent body allows me to see particulate accumulation. Valve on top allows me to service water filter without breaking line or disrupting water flow. Rugged construction. October 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product and price but dripped at inlet & outlet I ordered this whole-house filter to replace an older model in a wellhouse that cracked in recent record low temperatures. I paid for rush shipping since I had no water, and installed with a bypass (see photo) in case this new filter failed. The canister, top valve, and relief valve fit and functioned well, and the directions were clear and easy to follow. Unfortunately, although I followed the directions and purchased and used a mounting bracket, I had a small leak at the inlet and outlet fittings. I had used thread tape and the 3/4 NPT PVC fitting as directed, but it doesn't seem that the housing threads have any taper, and the 3/4 fitting screwed all the way in and bottomed on the bracket rather than tightening in the threads first. After 3h for the PVC cement to dry, there was slow dripping at the fittings, and I had to cut out the filter and start over. The gentleman at Home Depot instructed me to try yellow, thicker thread tape, at least 2-3 wraps, and I bought a number of new PVC elbows and fittings and re-installed. Once again, the 3/4 fitting bottomed on the hanger bracket, I tightened it as much as possible without breaking, and after another 3h dry time, I was disappointed to find it leaked again (see photo). The third and final time I used a longer 3/4 fitting without the hex shoulder, used yellow thread tape again, and tightened as much as I dared. The bracket supports the weight of the filter but can pivot since it is not tight to the filter head. Third time there was no leak, but this was a lot of extra time, money, and PVC practice for me to get it to be water-tight. I contacted the Dupont customer service line before my third installation, and let them know I had no water at that time, but never received a call-back. Filter is easy to change and I would recommend, except for this fitting issue. January 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just OK I think I expected too much from this filter but it was cheap enough that I figured I'd try this before spending a bunch more money on something else. I have city water that has must sort of algae smell to it. Doesn't taste real bad but you can smell it when you bring a glass to your face. This filter hasn't taken the smell away yet - it's better and is filtering out small particulate matter and I can see that in the clear plastic bowl but not entirely what I was looking for but at only $50 it amounts to a good "pre-filter" September 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job, easy to install We bought one of these to put on our water main after a winter of worse-than-usual sediment issues in our tap water. It installed in about 20 minutes with nothing but a pipe cutter and wrench (Sharkbite fittings are wonderful) and seems to be doing the job after a few days of operation. A nice cheap/easy fix for a really annoying problem. The threads on the inlet/outlet aren't very well-machined and I did run into minor leak issues initially. The solution, at least so far, was to use a LOT of PTFE tape (~8-9 turns per fitting) on the fittings going in and make sure everything is as tight as possible. Once I did all that the leaks stopped, although I've still got a bucket under the thing until I see about a month of leak-free operation. September 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice filter. Needs O-=rings, tho Filter has a switching valve for shut off, bypass or full on. Not really sure yet how useful this will prove to be. Fairly easy to install, but did not come with an assortment of O-rings witch would have saved several trips to the hardware store to stem the leakage. November 3, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by does a good job filtering sediment the threading of the in and out connections is poor. It still drips after tape, pipe dope, bees wax, and finally silicone. It looks like the best deal for a 3/4" water line. I bought a second one thinking to return the first, but the drip is slowing as it collects sediment. Now I have a spare. September 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this filter No matter how tight you make the fittings, it still leaks at both the inlet, and the outlet. The valve in the head reduces your pipe size to about 3/8 of an inch. August 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Valve-in-head Whole House Water Filtration Very well made, looks like it will last for years. Will order more to replace the ones I have had for years and one for my cabin. August 11, 2015
