How often do you change the filter?

Asked by Rick April 23, 2017

Answers

These filters require changing every three months for normal use, I would guess that heavy sediment might require changing more often. You can buy two WHF-104, Carbon Wrap filters for 10.99 on line at Home Depot which seems to be the best filters they have right now.

can it remove arsenic?

It does not say it would remove Arsenic. I would buy a better filter. This filter is to be used for sediment only, not any chemicals.

This is a high quality filter housing which accepts standard filter cartridges from most manufacturers. I like the pressure relief button for use when attempting to remove the lower housing to change cartridges. I would purchase this item again.

Great bang for the buck but has its problems.
I bought this filter about two years ago for a 50s house that has some pretty cruddy lines. The water comes out clear and tastes great when using the stage 4 filter. It's no RO filter, but it at least makes the water drinkable. The drawbacks are; the filter takes a lot of torque to screw the housing down tight enough so the gaskets don't leak, the mounting plate is not strong enough to hold the filter while retorquing down the housing. After four or five filter changes the mounting bracket was completely twisted out of shape. To change the filter I now disconnect the lines remove the whole filter assembly so I can get enough torque the first time. I will probably buy some quick connects now.

This Brita Whole House Filtration System comes with an average filter for particulates. It is an excellent system for a good value for those looking for a basic Whole House System where one is looking for filtering particulates and sediment from the water. If you're trying to filter chemicals and lead from the water this filter doesn't say anything about being able to do that. It only reduces sediment. It does have multiple replacement filters, one of which is a good buy for $10.99 for two filters, one lasts 3 months is the WHF-104 Carbon Wrap, a good buy. The box says the metal bracket is not included but I got it in both filters I got. The WHF-103 Filter is the one that comes with the filtering system and it's a Poly Block filter with 15<30 Micron Range but the Carbon Wrap gets it down to 5<15. This filter is a good bargain for basic filtration for the whole house and the filters are relatively inexpensive and need to be changed every three months and you might need to replace it more often if your home has a lot of sediment. This is a good bargain for basic Filtration of Sediment not chemicals. This filtration system comes with a plastic filter removal wrench. Handy!

This filter leaks everywhere it is possible to leak. I spent $45.00 on fittings, from PVC, to Iron, to brass. I used Teflon tape, then tried TFE paste thread compound twice, but the threads refused to seal. I tightened them so tight that I feared the plastic housing would break. Also, it was impossible to tighten the body enough to seal the large o-ring. I removed and replaced it several times, lubricating the o-ring each time, but it continued to seep. I finally returned it to the store for a refund.

Easy install to main water line
This Universal Opaque Whole House Water Filtration System. This filter system was easy to install we have PVC pipe so all we needed to do was add some unions to the pipe after measuring for proper fit and install the filter. you will want to build a support to hold the weight once it is in service . Also replacing the filter is an easy task very simple system.

Great as a pre-filter
I used this item as a pre-filter for a private well that supplies my house. I mounted it on a piece of OSB on the wall inside the pump house to filter out sediment before it reaches the house water conditioner. It is doing a great job and is reducing the number of times I have to back flush the water conditioner which saves energy. If your application is to filter city supplied water, it will reduce sediment in your home.
