    QuestionsHome Water Filters: What exactly is a whole house water filter?
    Answer

    Whole house water filters deliver purified water throughout the entire home to every faucet. These large, high-capacity systems are installed on the main water line before the water heater to provide purified water to both hot and cold water lines. In the water industry, whole house filters are also known as point-of-entry (POE) filters because they treat water at the entry point going into the home. Smaller drinking water filters are known as Point-of-use (POU) because they can typically only treat water at a single station where the water is being used, like a kitchen counter.

    Water softeners are a popular type of whole house filter, but they are actually just one subcategory under the whole house filtration branch which includes many types of specialized systems. We offer a large selection of both POE and POU water filters to treat every water need & concern.

    QuestionsCompare with RO: How is a whole house filter different from a home RO system?
    Answer

    Whole house filters are large capacity systems that provide basic and specialized water purification used for showers, baths, laundry, dishes and general cleaning applications. Reverse osmosis systems use membrane filtration technology to produce ultra-pure bottled quality water that is 90-99% contaminant free for drinking & cooking. RO treated water is more refined and pure than whole house treated water, but it takes much longer to produce and the volume is much smaller, therefore it is not often used for whole house filtration.

    For most households, the ideal setup would be to install both a RO system and a whole house carbon filter to treat their drinking, bathing & cleaning water. If water hardness is a problem, a water softener can be added. For people that have special water concerns or want more comprehensive water purification, they can consider one of our other whole house systems, our Total Solution filtration packages or even a whole house reverse osmosis system.

    QuestionsWater Concerns: Do I need a whole house water filter?
    Answer

    Yes! Whether you are on city or well water, you will benefit greatly from a whole house filter. Turn on any tap water faucet in America and you will certainly find some levels of unhealthy water contaminants including chlorine, chloramines, bacteria, fluoride, chemicals and pharmaceutical drug residues. Many of these substances can be absorbed, inhaled or ingested when people bathe, shower, wash dishes or cook dinner.

    Water hardness, scale, iron and hydrogen sulfide are other water concerns that can cause homeowners many problems and money if they are not addressed in the long run. If you are unsure about what type of system you need, please contact one of our friendly APEC water specialists and they will be happy to assist you.

    QuestionsTreatment Options: What types of filter systems are available?
    Answer

    Whole house systems use a wide variety of water purification technologies to treat water contamination. Activated media beds are used to remove pollutants from the water through the process of adsorption, ion-exchange, catalytic conversion and oxidation. There are many types of media and their versatility allows them to treat everything from natural and man-made chemicals to heavy metals and water hardness. For microbial concerns, UV lamps are used to sterilize water by attacking the DNA of microbial contaminants with ultraviolet light which effectively destroys bacteria, viruses and cysts. Screen, sieve and membrane filtration can also be used to remove pollutants within a wide range of micron ratings.

     

    QuestionsControl Head valve: Why do some systems have a control head valve and others don't?
    Answer

    Most of our heavy-duty whole house systems use electronic control head valves. These programmable valves provide automatic backwashing for our media systems allowing them to periodically clean themselves for longer lasting more efficient filtration. Regular backwashing cycles remove dirt and sediment and redistributes media to reduce the effects of compacting and channeling. This process eliminates the need for pre-filtration and also protects the system from premature fouling and clogging. In water softening systems, the control valve also manages the salt regeneration and acts like a meter to effectively monitoring water and salt usage to reduce waste.

    On some whole house models, we do not include the control valve because the need for backwashing is not as critical. These filters typically use lighter media which can be redistributed effectively just by the natural water flow. Without the need to backwash, these systems do not require electricity and are slightly more energy and water efficient.

    QuestionsChoosing a system: I'm not really sure what type of system I need?
    Answer

    We always ask our customers, "What are your biggest concerns with regards to your current water quality?" The most common issues that cause user dissatisfaction include water chlorination, bad odors, water hardness, scale buildup, chemical additives, microbial contamination, iron staining & fluoridation. Removing these unwanted contaminants will improve your health and quality of life and some systems also provide additional benefits such as protecting your home, pipes and appliances from rust, scale and water damage. Below is a table that lists the most common water concerns and their treatment solutions. If you are unsure about which system you need, please contact us for more information.

    QuestionsMaterial Safety: Are whole house systems safe to use? Will they add anything undesirable to the water?

    Answer Our whole house systems are constructed of components that are 100% FREE of lead, BPA (Bisphenol A) and phthalates. From the control valves, to the mineral tank, down to the fittings, every part in our systems has been tested and certified for materials safety and will not leach anything harmful into the water.

This is what allows us to deliver exceptional products of the highest safety and quality standards.

    QuestionsInstallation: Where should the system be installed? Can I install it myself?

    AnswerWhole house systems are installed at the main water line as it enters the home. Typically these units are installed in the garage or basement in close proximity to the water heater. Outdoor installations are possible but some form of enclosure should be used to protect the unit from the elements. Whole house filters should be installed ahead of the water heater to ensure that both hot and cold water lines are treated.

    Since whole house filters are installed on the main water line, some pipe cutting will be required. Unless you are comfortable doing this yourself, we recommend most people to hire a professional plumbing service to install a whole house system.

    QuestionsShipping Schedule: If I order the system today, when do you ship?
