How big of a whole house water filter do I need?

A whole house water filter is designed to filter all of the water entering your home from the municipal water line or other source like a well, before it is used for drinking, bathing, laundry and other household needs.

Whole house water filters typically use multi-stage filtration systems to remove contaminants from the water, such as chlorine, bacteria, sediment, and other organic and synthetic materials.

Factors to consider when choosing the size of your whole house water filter

  1. Location

Location plays a major role when selecting a whole house water filter. The size of the water filter that you choose will ultimately depend on the water in your area. If you live in an area with hard water, then you may want to invest in a whole house water softener. For those living in an area affected by chloramines or chlorine, a carbon based filter can help to remove these contaminants from the water supply. It is also important to consider the levels of sediment, iron, and other potentially harmful contaminants in your water.

  1. Size of the home 

It’s important to ensure the filter is big enough to accommodate the size of the home so that it can effectively filter out all potential contaminants and provide clean, safe water for every tap in the home. A larger home will likely require a higher flow rate and a larger capacity water filter in order to be effective at filtering out all potential contaminants.

  1. Your budget 

How much money you are willing to spend on a water filter and what features are important to you will determine the type and size of whole house filter you select. Also, consider the long-term costs associated with installing and maintaining the water filter system. The price of a whole house water filter will depend on the system’s size and filtration capabilities. Generally, larger systems or those that offer better filtration will be more expensive.

  1. Level of contaminants 

The size of filter and its micron rating or pore size will determine how well the filter can remove contaminants from the water. Whole house filters are typically rated by the size of particles they can filter out. Smaller micron ratings mean that even smaller particles can be removed. For example, a filter with a 1-micron rating will remove particles down to 1 micron in size.

Benefits of investing in a whole house water filter

A whole house water filter will ensure that all of the water in your home is free of chlorine, lead, and other contaminants, providing cleaner, healthier water for all your household needs.
