How Long Will a Whole Home Water Filter Last?


When To Replace Your Home Water Filter

Installing a full home water filter is an excellent way to ensure you get fresh, clean water from every faucet. However, water filtration systems need some maintenance to continue working properly; replacing the filters before they become too clogged or worn out is an essential step. Read on and learn to recognize the signs that tell you it is time for a new filter!

Reasons To Replace A Water Filter

Water filters are designed to collect all the minerals, sediments and chemicals present in your water. As time goes by, they get overloaded and clog up. To avoid this and protect the quality of your water, periodically replace the filters in your system.

The lifespan of a whole house water filter largely depends on a few different factors:

  • The amount of minerals, chemicals and sediments in your water.
  •  The capacity of your filters.
  • The amount of water you use daily.

A filter’s capacity is measured by how many gallons of water it can process before needing a replacement. The bigger the filter, the longer it will last. Take into account that, typically, a whole water filter is not meant to last more than a year.

Signs That You Need a New Filter

One of the main telltale signs that your home water filtration system is poor tasting water. However, there are many other warning indications:

  • Cloudy water.
  • A decrease in water pressure.
  • Odd noises coming out of your faucet.
  • Bad odors.

I contacted WaterDR for a mitigation system for a high Radon reading after a home inspection. I spoke directly with one of the technician’s “Joe “ he was absolutely polite and informative.

Josh and the other technicians at Water Doctor are real experts and extremely knowledgeable. Even better, for the one obscure piece of equipment I had they had little experience with, they admitted they would have to check with someone else in the company before rending an opinion. These guys are honest, smart, ethical and have fair pricing. They won’t sell

The guys from Water Dr. couldn’t have been any better to deal with over the years. We sold our house and they did our least service/tune up. Years of great service on our well. Fairly priced. Just nice guys to do business with. If my new house had a well they would be my guys.
