I am looking to buy a whole house filter. There are 3 people in our household. Which CuZn water filter would work best, the WH10 or the WH20?
The CuZn inline filters (WH10 and WH20) can NOT be backwashed, so the media is used up. It will last approx. 1 year sometimes much more, sometimes much less depending on the water being used. We would need a full water analysis in order to provide a precise suggestion. Media replacements can be purchased too.

The water that we drink – is it fit for consumption? Most ailments are transmitted through water – that underscores the importance of water treatment systems; especially for homes. These water treatment devices can improve the quality of water by reducing health hazards such as bacteria, chemical pollutants and other toxic substances. In addition, they also help remove nuisance problems, such as odors or hardness.
The first step towards deciding on the water treatment device to be procured is to know the quality of your water supply. This can be established by testing your water supply. While these are aspects that are to be addressed by scientific means, issues such as odor and hardness can be assessed just be observation.
As already brought out – the first step to buying a water treatment system is to establish the quality of your water supply – on this fact rests two decisions firstly, if water treatment is needed and secondly, if treatment is needed, what kind of treatment would be most appropriate. To know the different types of treatments such as water softening and reverse osmosis and the options available – read on. The best option would be to remove the root cause itself – this is the simplest and the most economical solution to the problem – remove the source of contamination or obtain a new source of drinking water. This however, may not be possible and thus the appropriate solution would be to treat the water with a water treatment system.
