Questions & Answers

Q:Is this tge correct filter fir my home off Deer Point Lake outside Panama City Fl?
by|Sep 18, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  This will depend on your source of water. If you have a local water utility supply, you can request a copy of your water quality report (called a CCR or Consumer Confidence Report) from your local authority. If you are unable to get the report, try searching EWG's Tap Water Database using your area zip code to find the contaminants.

        The unit leaked excessively at the ends. Had to use a lot more thread tape than ever before. Other than that it was a good buy.

        Good Filter
        It's a good whole house filter for the price point. Water is clean and free from chlorine. I've been using for a while now.

          I wish I could give this more than an average rating but my water is still very cloudy to the point that it looks like milky water. This filtration system has been installed since 7/27 and it was great the first week.
