Types of Whole House Water Filters
There are two main types of water filters for home use: backwashing filters and cartridge filters. Each has its own pros and cons, and the right system will depend in part on what's in your water, the concentration of the contaminant, and how fast you need the water to be treated. If you aren't sure which type you need, call our helpful Certified Water Specialists at +1-317-434-3545 and we'll be happy to assist you. Our team doesn't work on commission, and since we sell both types of water filters, our only goal is to help you find the right water treatment method.
One of the main differences between the two types of whole house water filter is the filter material. Cartridge filters include one or more removable filters that have a limited lifespan and must be replaced regularly. Contaminants in the water are typically trapped in the cartridge, and when that cartridge is all clogged up, it can be pulled out and replaced with a clean filter. Depending on the quality of your water and what the filter is treating, it may need to be replaced every 3 to 12 months.
