Get the Most Out of Your Water Filtration System With These Easy Tips

Do you want to get the most out of your water filtration system? It’s easy if you know what to do! Maintaining your system for efficiency and longevity is key, and this blog will provide you with all the information you need. From simple tips to more in-depth maintenance recommendations, we will make sure that you understand how to keep your water filtration system at its best. 

Replace Your Filters Regularly

It’s essential to replace your filters regularly in order to ensure optimal performance and efficiency from your water filtration system. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter every three months or when it appears dirty. If you have a sediment filter, it may need to be replaced more often depending on the water quality.

Clean the Housing

It’s important to keep the housing of your system clean, as this will help with water flow and extend the life of your filters. Regularly check for any dirt or debris that may have accumulated inside the housing and use a damp cloth to wipe it out.

Check Pressure Gauges

Checking pressure gauges regularly is important in order to ensure optimum performance from your water filtration system. The gauge should be between 40 and 60 psi. If the pressure goes higher or lower than this, it could mean there’s a problem with your system.

Check for Leaks

It’s also essential to check your system for leaks. If the housing is cracked or damaged, water can escape and create problems. Check your system for any signs of leaking and have it replaced as soon as possible if you find one.

These are just some of the easy tips to help you get the most out of your water filtration system. Remember, regular maintenance is key! If you have any questions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact the company who assisted with the installation of your system. They should be able to provide you with additional information and help if needed.

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.
