You may be contemplating purchasing a whole house water filtration system or perhaps you've had a unit for many years and you are considering replacing it. Some common questions and concerns we hear from those who fall under either category are "How long does a system last?" or "How will we know when we should start looking for a system?" and "How do we know if we need a system in the first place?"

If you are a first time buyer, the most important thing to understand is water is not always what it appears to be. Even if your water does not appear to have any issues like bad water odor or bad water taste, there may be other contaminants that need to be addressed. At the expense of sounding repetitive, we always suggest a water test for your home water supply. This water analysis will determine if you need a whole house water filtration system or water softener and it will also indicate whether or not the system you currently have in place is performing, if you already have a system. We like working with facts. If we know what is in your water, we will know which solution will be optimal for you. Common things we check for are chlorine, chloramine, TDS (total dissolved solids), and water hardness.

Now, to address the question of shelf life of a filtration system...there are many factors to consider. For instance, each manufacturer should have a warranty on their products. Our most popular system offers a 25 year limited warranty. If your house water filter systems gives you any indication that there may be a problem, do not procrastinate about getting to the bottom of it. Schedule a free water analysis to ensure the safety of your water. It may be a simple repair or it may need to be replaced. On the bright side, there are finance options available if your system does, in fact, need to be replaced. You will also have peace of mind knowing the product you are receiving has a great warranty and is manufactured by a company that has been in business since 1960 and is a leader in the industry of water filtration and water softening systems.
