Whole House Water Filter System Review
The unit can remove suspended particles, chlorine, chloramines, PFOA, PFAS, PFOS, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, VOCs, chemicals, and other harmful contaminants from water.
The system uses a 4-stage filtration mechanism with the help of 2 tanks to remove the contaminants from the water. The filtration design is different from the majority of the filtration systems available in the market. This unique design adds value and effectiveness to your system and results in the best quality of water. The 4 stages of the system are explained below
Stage 1: Sediment Filtration Stage – The first stage in a small separate tank uses a 5-micron filtration media to remove suspended particles like sand, silt, dust, rust, and any other sediment in the water.
Stage 2: KDF Filtration Stage – It consists of a copper/zinc filtration media which removes chlorine and heavy metals. This stage ensures that your water does not have chlorine taste and smell in the water. Municipal treatment centers add chlorine for disinfecting the water. Heavy metals also add color and odors to your water.
Stage 3: Coconut Shell Carbon Filtration Stage – At the 3rd stage, organic contaminants like chemicals, fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and other harmful VOCs are removed from the water.
Stage 4: Flex Bed Filtration Stage – The 4th stage increases the contact time to remove channels from the water and any residual chlorine. It polishes your water to taste better, remove odors, and produce water with a consistent taste.
The filter has a capacity of filtering 1,000,000 gallons of water for 10 years. You need to replace/change the main tank’s filtration media after filtering 1,000,000 gallons of water or 10 years (whichever comes first). The pre-filter (sediment filter) needs to be changed every 6-9 months, depending upon the quality of water and your usage.
Depending upon your usage, you can select from three different types of models. We will discuss the flow rates in relation to the number of washrooms in your home.
- Model # 0948
- Number of Washrooms: 1-3
- Flow Rate: 9 Gallons per minute
- Tank Width: 9 inch
- Tank Height: 48 inches (52 inches with head)
- Model # 1054
- Number of Washrooms: 4-6
- Flow Rate: 12 Gallons per minute
- Tank Width: 10 inch
- Tank Height: 54 inches (58 inches with head)
- Model # 1354
- Number of Washrooms: 7+
- Flow Rate: 20 Gallons per minute
- Tank Width: 13 inch
- Tank Height: 54 inches (58 inches with head)
Heavy models have a bigger tank height and width. It helps in generating more flow rate and power. SpringWell has ensured that every washroom in the house gets an excellent flow rate, so you get to enjoy your shower. With such powerful flow rates, you can also work in the kitchen conveniently at the same time.
All the variants can handle a pressure of 25-80 PSI and operate at a temperature of 36-120 F. The first two models listed above have a connection size of 1 inch; the last model has a connection of 1.5 inches. It helps in generating more flow rate.
