How to Choose Your Whole House Water Filter


It's really not that hard friends!
Just take a few minutes to read these simple steps.     
This is for people on municipally-treated water, not wells.  If you have a well, get your water tested.


1.  Determine if your municipality uses chloramines or chlorine, AND if they add fluoride.

Do a web search for " 'your town + state' annual water quality report" OR call the number on your water bill to ask them.


2.  Based on the answer to those 2 questions:

a.  If you have chlorine, not chloramines, and no fluoride, this is the best choice:

2-media 1-tank Chlorine Plus.


b.  If you have chloramines (even some of the time) and no fluoride, this is the best choice:

2-media 1-tank Chloramine Plus


c.  If you have Chlorine OR Chloramine AND Fluoride you can select either one of the 2 or 3 tank whole house filters that is described as filtering Fluoride - see them on this page: 

Whole House Filters.

OR

Get a whole house filter for chlorine or chloramines (linked above) and combine with this kitchen filter:

Fluoride Plus Kitchen 2-Canister
                
Look at your water bill to see how much water you use in a year.


Other Options:


BIGGER


The media lasts 500,000 gallons instead of 300,000 gallons, see these:


2-Tank 2-Media Chlorine Plus


2-Tank 2-Media Chloramine Plus


3-Tank Fluoride Plus


SMALLER
