Bag vessel system vs. Cartridge System?
We have a 40 GPM well, 100 feet deep and a large house with 4 bathrooms, 2 sets of W/D's. Our problem is that we have sediment, minerals, and hard water. We installed a water softener and that helped with the hard water, but our shower heads frequently plug up so that we only get a trickle of water. Our water tastes fine, but we notice both white stains and rust stains where the water stays on the tile.
We are now looking at installing a whole house filter. The plumber that we talked to recommended a bag system, the Pentek BP-420. Someone else said to just get a cartridge system like the Big Blue. My husband likes the idea of the bag system because it tells you when to change the bag, a convenience feature, we think. It seems like the cost of the bags vs. the cartridge filters is sixes.
We want to get good water flow. What do you know about each type of system? How do we decide? Thanks!
