About This Product

Use the Anchor 3-Stage Whole House Filtration System to treat water in your commercial or industrial applications. It features a three stage design with a sediment filter, multi-stage filter and carbon block filter cartridges for clean, refreshing water. This purified water also helps you have cleaner laundry, stain free appliances and softer hair and skin.

Highlights

  • Point of Entry (POE) or Point of Use (POU) filtration system with three large 20 in. filter cartridges for high flow applications
  • Capacity estimate of 100,000 gals
  • Stage 1 - 20 in., 5-micron polypropylene sediment pre-filter removes sediment, silt, sand and dirt and extends life of other more expensive cartridges
  • Stage 2 - multi-stage 20 in. filter consists of 1-micron filter pad, 4 lbs. of KDF55 and GAC for removing heavy metal (lead, mercury, iron) and to control microorganisms; reduces chlorine and sulfide odor
  • Stage 3 - 20 in. 5-micron carbon block cartridge to absorb heavy chlorine and its byproducts such as THM and TCE
  • The unique pore structure of carbon is well suited for chemical absorption, including SOCs such as pesticides and dioxins, and VOCs such as chloroform and petrochemicals
  • The carbon block filter cartridge is made from coconut shell carbon that reduces compounds that contribute to bad taste and odor and creates sweeter tasting water
  • Pressure relief button on each housing
  • High chemical absorption capacity
  • No channeling and pressure drop
  • In the box: assembled filter system with filters, steel mounting bracket with bolts, housing wrench and instructions

          Q:Can I turn the canisters around n the mounting so the water goes from left to right, but still in the same direction as the arrows and in the same order of the three canisters?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hi Paul, It can be done as long as the direction of the water is proper. Make sure water enters at the IN side, sediment should be the first stage.

            1. What is neither described nor shown in the photo are: a welded tubular steel frame connected to the wall plate which would allow free standing on the floor; a water pressure gauge located between the 1st and 2nd canister starting from the right as you see it; inlet starts from the right and moves to left (reverse mounting plate/frame for L to R); filters are installed. in canisters; pressure release ports are located at top of each canister; and, plastic canister wrench. 2. I installed after a pressure tank which I had added to a city water supply with a loop cutoff for uninterrupted whole house service of filter or tank. 3. I also added a copper strap (1/4" pipe tube) between copper pipes before the filter as a ground. The connections between canisters are copper but not continuous. 4. The only issue I had was at the ports in and out where I had not wound enough PFTE tape around my union, I had 3-4 and it leaked. I removed and made 7-8 turns of PFTE and no leak. 5. I used 1 inch copper sweated in place with no heat near the canisters and connected with unions and added another water pressure gauge about a foot from the end to measure in and out pressures. Pressure drop is negligible between in and out flows. 6. Water was bubbly after install and after repair of ports (about a day for air to be out of system) and tastes better than anything out of a bottle. 7. Minor damage to tubular frame during shipping (unit weighs about 50#) which stiffer packaging on sides would have alleviated.

            Great Filter System
            We are very happy with the filtration system. Within hours of installation, noticed drinking water to be significantly clearer & better tasting. We have suffered with iron bacteria in our water for a long time. This system has changed that immediately.

              It leaks from the fittings. In the middle of the unit. Manufacturer suggests I disassemble it and tighten it up. If any parts are cracked or broken they will replace them. Quite a bit of work. The unit will need to be removed from the water system first. Then taken apart. Is this really my responsibility???

                We have a second home with a well and knew we had issues with the water, so we thought we'd try to see if we can get some of the sediment out. The Anchor 3 stage was incredible. The difference was more than we expected. We've only had it for a few weeks so we will see how it holds out but for right now it nice to see clear water!

                  Home Depot is directly responsible for this not being a very negative report. Home Depot stood behind this product and made things right for me. The first set of filters was delivered and then my plumber installed them and discovered that the manifold had a tiny crack in it. If Home Depot had not worked with me to get a replacement I would have been extremely unhappy. As it was I needed to pay my plumber for 2 days rather than one so the cost of installation was excessive - directly because the product was not adequately tested before shipping (the packaging was strong enough that there was no way the manifold, which is supported by the steel framework, could have cracked in transit) The filters are good but Home Depot Customer Service is excellent

                  Installed and about two weeks later a small drip has appeared on the inlet fitting of the third stage. It is installed under our craw space, and although it is a drip about every 10 seconds (now). I will monitor it to see if the condition gets worse. I have installed it with a by-pass and can disconnect and remove the unit.
