Whole-house filter for shower?
Since shower fittings are 1/2" and there are 1/2" inlet/outlet filters, instead of buying those shower filters, can't I just use a 10" whole house filter hooked up to my showerhead with a high-flow filter like the Pentek Floplus-10?
Or would it weigh too much or something?
I currently rent my apartment and have lots of fishtanks, so a whole house system isn't feasible just yet. I know a single filter won't reduce chlorine/flouride/etc completely, but I figure it has to do a better job than those smaller showerfilters and last longer...
Thanks for any insight!
What water conditions are you trying to take care of?
