Whole Of House Water Filter System FAQ

What Are The Benefits Of Installing a Whole of House Sediment Reduction Filter?

There are many benefits including:

  • Cleaner Laundry
    Taking sediment out of your water can improve the performance of your washing machine and help you avoid staining from incoming sediment.
  • Protection For Appliances
    Removing sediment from your water can reduce corrosion, premature wear, and abrasion on your appliances. It can protect all water consuming appliances including your hot water service, coffee machine, washing machine, jug, dishwasher, steam oven. This can increase their reliability and service life.
  • More Enjoyable Showers
    Reducing the amount of algae, dirt, sand and silt in your water makes showers much better.
  • Better Tasting Food
    Some forms of sediment can add a distinctive bad taste/odour to your food. Removing them with a sediment filter removes that negative taste/odour.

What Is The Best Whole House Sediment Filter For Tank Water?

The answer to this question will vary based on:

  • The quality of your water (How much sediment is in it)
  • How much water you are using
  • How much water pressure you have available
  • How much maintenance you can do on the system
  • What other filtration units are installed

For individuals who have clean tank water, a 5 micron polyspun filter or a 5 micron pleated washable is usually ideal. It will perform well and last a reasonable amount of time.

If you intend to use a UV sterilizer after the sediment filter, then you MUST filter down to at least 5 microns. This is necessary to ensure that pathogens can’t hide behind sediment particles and avoid UV light exposure.

If you have a moderate amount of sediment in your tank, a 20 micron filter might be more suitable. It won’t clog up or impair as quickly from the larger amount of sediment in the tank.

For tanks with heavy sediment, multiple stages of sediment filtration is often beneficial. The initial filter may be 50 micron, then subsequent filters can be 20 or 5 micron. Bag filter housings with nylon bag filters can be useful on heavily sedimented water as the bags can be washed and re-used many times.

Some experimentation may be required to find the right micron rating for your water.

How Long Does A Whole House Sediment Filter Last?

The lifespan of your filter cartridge will vary based on the quality of your water, the filter’s micron rating and how much water you put through the system.

However, in general terms, a Polyspun filter will about 6 months.

A Pleated Washable can last a bit longer as it has more surface areas. If you just install a pleated washable and never washable, you can expect a lifespan of 6-9 months. However, if you wash sediment from the filter every 2-3 months you can extend the lifespan up to 18 months (depending on water quality).

If your water quality is quite poor, you may have a reduced lifespan from your filters.


Will I Need A Plumber To Install A Whole House Water Filter?

It really depends on how handy you are and how complex the installation is.

Whole house water filters are usually installed on the incoming water line from the mains. This is usually a copper or galvanised line. Cutting into that line does need a little expertise, but many homeowners tackle the job themselves.

If the water filter is going to be used on a tank, you might be working with poly pipe, which makes installation much easier. You’ll just need the correct poly fittings.

How Long Will A Plumber Take To Install A Whole House Water Filter?

The amount of time it takes to install a whole house water filter will vary based on:

  • The size of the system
  • The location of the mains and any impediments to accessing it
  • The skill of the plumber

In most cases, a plumber will take between 1 to 2 hours to install a system. However, if it is a complex installation it might be longer.
