WHY DO I NEED TO CHANGE MY WATER FILTER?
Here’s why you should get a water filter system service by Aqua Filter Warehouse. A water filter is constantly working to protect your water supply. These filters collect all of the extra gunk and particles that aren’t supposed to be there.
With the increased risk of boil water notices around Ireland, it is imperative that your water filter system is maintained regularly.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY WATER FILTER?
The basic rule of thumb for cleaning or changing a water filter is every 6-12 months depending on manufacturers recommendations.
However, how often you change your filter also depends on other factors like:
- Water consumption of household
- Brand/unit of filtration system
- Amount of elements that need filtering
- Hardness of water
You should change your water filter every 6-8 months if you have a large number of people in your house, you use the filtered water frequently, you have hard water, or you have medium to heavy sediments.
Most residential water filters will have a cling calendar or electronic indicator to help determine when it’s time to change or clean your filter.
You can use the TDS reading of a water quality pen to see when you should change your filter, and it will show you the amount of dissolved solids present in your water supply.
It’s easy to mindlessly pour water and ignore any indicators to change your filter, though. Thus, you might also want to set a reminder on your phone or calendar. After you change your filter, schedule another change in one or two months.
Follow the instructions in your filter’s user manual for more specific time ranges for cleaning and changing. It’s very important not to skip a water filter system service
