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
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.
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
Media lasts for 80,000 gallons.
