DOES THIS FILTER COME WITH FILTERS IN THEM OR DO YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM

Asked by: BILL
you have to buy them.

Would two of these installed in parallel work....

....as a inexpensive substitute for a two stage filter?
Asked by: Richard
Installing in parallel will allow for greater flow capacity with less pressure reduction. You would have to install in series in order to achieve multiple stage filtration. Parallel installation means installing multiple filters in a line that splits, goes to each filter separately, then joins back after the filters. Series installation means the line flows through one filter first, then through the next and any other subsequent filters after passing through the first. Yes, you could do this with different cartridges in each filter housing to achieve multi stage filtration, but the results and cost might not be what you are expecting. This is what I plan on doing in my home. But with two banks of two or three stages. One to catch heavy sediment, one to catch fine sediment, and then a carbon filter for taste. I have one filter in place already, but have noticed flow issues since installation. A second in parallel should solve that. A 3/4 inch line can flow up to 23 gallons per minute at standard house pressure of 45-60 psi. One of these filters can flow 12, two in parallel should be able to handle 24 gpm together. I live on a well that gets a lot of sediment stirred up after heavy rain, my water will remain cloudy for several days after heavy rain.

mounting a whole house filter horizontally

I have limited space in my small pump house and would like to install a filter horizontally to eliminate the need for lots of elbows. Can this filter be mounted horizontally?
Asked by: bruce
Not recommended horizontal. Would be tough to center cartridge and screw bowl on, never would seal to the cartridge. And when changing, you would get water all over. And vertical lets dirt settle on the bottom.

how do you install this on the sink and please reply

Asked by: Anonymous
I would install the filter under the sink, on the cold side of the water coming to the sink. If you need filtered water on both the hot and cold water, then you would be best to install the filter before the hot water tank, as they don't hold up too long in the hot water. In that case the water would go through the filter and then split some water going to the hot water tank and the cold going to the sink. Normally for one sink, I would go with just the cold water. Most of the dirt in water will fall to the bottom in the hot water tank, and you don't drink the hot water anyway as a rule.. If you can I would put the filter in line with the water coming into the house, and filter all the water that the house will use, not just one sink, and change the cart. once every month or two or 2 to 4,000 gal of water.. hope this answers your question

Whole Home Water Filtration System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 52.

I originally installed one filter in conjunction with a GE water softener. Due to the hard water in my area, I decided to install 2 additional ones with a 50 micron, a 10 micron and charcoal filter in succession. To save the hassle of welding I used SharkBite fittings with PEX piping and clamps to fasten everything together. Could tell the difference in the water right away. There is one hassle, in my opinion, with the filter casing in that the pressure relief valve (red button on top) spills water all over the wall. One must depress it to depressurize the housing before changing a filter. Strongly recommend adding a faucet to make it easier to relieve the pressure and ball-style shutoff valves at input and output to help speed up the changing process. Also, do not forget to use plenty of Teflon tape with your fittings. Teflon is your friend and will act as an O-ring.

I like the thoughts that I can filter more or less and more is always better specially when the prices are low as they are with these replacement filters. Super easy to install, easy to replace filters and cheap to maintain and hey, it works. Not many products out there you can say is inexpensive and works great but this one of them. Hope your as happy with your filter as I am.

Installation is simple however you need to use a lot of teflon tape otherwise it will leak. I noticed the water smell and taste improved immediately. The filtration system does not include the filter so you need to purchase it separately, I use the charcoal filter. 2-pack filter cost under $12 and each filter is supposed to last 3-6 months. We will see about that.
