3 Reasons You Need a Whole House Water Filter

Dirty Whole House Water Filter after 12 months on Minnetonka city water

Have you ever looked inside your toilet tank?

Do you see anything?

Does it look like sand, sediment, or rust?

That debris is collecting inside your water heater and plumbing too.

A Whole House Water Filter acts like a “firewall”. Quietly protecting everything in your home.

You can stop that crud from sneaking into your home and setting up camp in the back of your toilet.

Interested yet?

Here are 3 reasons a Whole House Filter should be on the top of your list:

Added Layer of Protection for Your Home

Appliances, plumbing fixtures, and even your Water Softener all have rubber or plastic seals inside them. Even the smallest amount of sediment or debris can damage those seals.

Damaged seals leak. It doesn’t matter if it’s a faucet, dishwasher, or a water softener.

A Whole House Water Filter will take out damaging sediment, dirt, and debris. You’ll have piece of mind knowing your home’s appliances will last longer, and work more reliably.

Eliminate “Bad Water” Surprises

Both city water and well water supplies can suffer from an unexpected “shock to the system”. These can lead to a “surprise” coming out of your tap.

City water “surprises” can come from:

  • water main breaks (cities like Minneapolis average 1 per week)
  • hydrant flushing
  • new construction water connections

When these events happen, they knock Iron and Sediment buildup loose inside water mains.

The result? A slug of orange water or dirt comes into your home.

Well water supplies can be dynamic too. Water quality can change from season-to-season.

A Whole House Water Filter gives you the confidence to wash white laundry whenever you want. Your neighbors might complain about stained laundry, but you won’t have to!

Simple Maintenance and Operation

Whole House Filters require no electricity. There’s no water waste or salt. No controller, batteries, or clocks to reset.

These systems can be added at any time, to any water treatment system.

A Whole House Filter System only requires periodic filter changes. The water filters Premier Water carries are usually changed every 12-36 months. Service depends on use, water quality, and filter rating.

How to Pick a Whole House Water Filter

When selecting a Whole House Filter, you should consider a few things:

  1. Physical Filter Size
  2. Filter (Micron) Rating
  3. Flow Rate
  4. Filter Life

Bigger filters have more surface area. They last longer, offer better water pressure, and actually make better water.

Don’t get mislead by small 2” x 10” filters. They load up too fast, hurt water pressure, and can’t handle more than 1 faucet at a time. They make great drinking water filters, but are just too small for whole house applications!
