Whole Of House Water Filter Systems
Clarence Water Filters is one of the leading stockists of whole house water filters for town and tank water in Australia.
We offer several styles of whole house water filters including:
Big Blue Whole House Water Filter Systems
Called “Big Blue” systems because of the bright blue colour of the filters sumps. Available in several sizes, including 20″ x 4.5″, 20″ x 2.5″ and 10″ x 4.5″ housings. Systems can be configured to your requirements, with single, twin, and triple systems available.
They take standard double open ended filters, which makes it simple to obtain replacement filters as needed. A more affordable option than proprietary filter systems, which have higher running costs.
High Performance Whole House Filtration Systems
High Performance Filtration have released a series of Big Blue water filter systems with high-quality stainless steel housings. The housing protect the filtration system from damaging UV light and harsh weather, extending its lifespan. An attractive option ideal for front-of-house installations. Available in Twin, Twin + UV, and Triple filter configurations.
UV sterilizers use powerful beams of ultraviolet light to kill pathogens including bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and cyst parasites. View our UV Sterilisers.
Calcite pH Neutralising Systems
Acidic water can be an issue for properties using tank water. Fortunately, acidic water can usually be corrected using a large vessel with calcite or calcite/corosex.
Bag Filter Housings For Sediment Reduction
Bag filters are one of the most economical options for removing sediment from your water. Often used on untreated water high in sediment, like tank, dam, bore, river, or creek water. Capable of handling very high flow rates. View our Bag Filter Systems.
We have system configurations available for both treated town water and untreated water. There are also filtration units which deal with other common problems like:
- Acidic tank water
- Hard water
- Sediment-heavy water
- Water Containing Pathogens (Bacteria, Viruses, Protozoa, Giardia, Cryptosporidium)
3M™ Aqua-Pure™ AP900 Whole House Water Filter Systems
The AP900 Whole House Water Filter Series from 3M™ uses their innovative Sanitary Quick Change System, which makes changing filters as simple as changing a light bulb. A great choice for anyone of reasonably good quality water, who is looking for a low-maintenance whole house filtration solution.

Whole Of House Water Filter Systems For Town Water
Although Australian town water is generally of reasonable quality, it can still contain a variety of natural and manmade contaminants. This might include:
- Chlorine and Chloramines
Water authorities will introduce chlorine and/or chloramines to kill or incapacitate pathogens in the water, including bacteria, protozoa, cyst parasites (crypto, giardia, cyclospora), and viruses.
- Bad Tastes/Odours
Town water that has been disinfected using chlorine or chloramines can take on a very unpleasant smell and odour. Whole house water filters containing carbon can neutralise this effect, making your water much more enjoyable to consume.
Particulates including sand, silt, dirt, rust, and metal particles
- Disinfection by-products (DBHs)
When chemicals like chlorine and chloramines are added to water, they can interact with other substances and create new types of chemicals and compounds. This can include trihalomethanes, a type of chemical dangerous to humans in high levels.
- Pesticides and Herbicides
Water reservoirs in rural areas may become contaminated by pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals. Some of these chemicals are dangerous for human consumption in high levels.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
Volatile organic compounds are organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure and low boiling point. They are found in many chemical substances including adhesives, paints, and solvents.
Our whole house water filter systems for town water can dramatically reduce these contaminants, helping you enjoy water that is much safer and more enjoyable to consume.
Whole Of House Water Filters For Tank and Untreated Water
If you are using untreated water from a water tank, bore, river, dam, or creek, you will be facing a different set of challenges compared to people on town water. Although you won’t need to worry about chlorine, chloramines, and disinfection by-products, you may need to filter for:
- High Levels of Sediment
Untreated water can contain a large amount of sediment compared to treated town water. This can include dirt, rust, leaf particles, metal particles and more. These particulates can cause staining, making your water unpalatable, and damage water-consuming appliances.
If your water source is potentially exposed to animal activity or decaying organic matter, it may begin to harbour bacteria, cyst parasties, viruses and other pathogens. The best approach to dealing with this type of water is usually an ultraviolet steriliser. The steriliser uses powerful beams of UV light to kill or incapacitate 100% of pathogens.
- Taste/odour Issues
Untreated water can sometimes have an unusual aroma or flavour. Whole house water filters can help by adsorbing unpleasant aromas/flavours, making your water much more enjoyable.
It’s also advisable to use silver carbon in whole house systems for tank water, as it is bacteriostatic (kills bacteria).
