Flouride

Question:
I have an Amana Model #DRS2660BC. Do you know if there is a filter that removes flouride that will fit my fridge?

Answer:
There is no refrigerator water filter available that will remove flouride. The most common filtration system for flouride removal is a reverse osmosis water filter system. We do have a reverse osmosis system for review. It is the APRO5500.

Bad Rust Problem

Question:
I have a bad rust problem will my well water,I understand that there is a magnetic system that will remove the rust and it also back flushes itself and is set on a timer to do this

Answer:
We do not recommend any type of magnetic system as it may remove some rust but can’t be very effective. The best solution for rust and sediment is a whole house water filter system with a high micron level sediment filter. Whole house water filter systems are affordable and can be purchased for the size home that you have. If you have 1-2 bathrooms, you can use a small standard size system, 3-4 and you might want to use the standard large size system and if you use a lot of water, you will want to look at the 10″ whole house water filter systems. You can view a full list of whole house systems with detailed specs on Filters Fast whole house water systems link. Please let us know if you need any further assistance in selecting the correct system and filter for your needs.

Green Algae

Original Comment from Blog User
I HAVE A BORRED WELL. I USE A WHOLE HOUSE FILTER. TODAY WHEN I WENT TO CHANGE MY FILTER ONE SIDE OF IT HAD A GREEN GROWTH ON IT. IT WAS ON THE SIDE THAT FACED THE DOOR OF MY WELL ROOM. THE DOOR WAS LEFT OPEN WHICH HARDLY EVER HAPPENS. WHAT IS THIS?
Answer:
What you have on your filter is Algae. Is there any sunlight reaching into the room? Normally sunlight will cause Algae growth. Now, how do you clean it? First discard the old filter. Before placing a new filter into the housing, clean the inside of the housing well with a water and bleach solution. Then replace the filter. After replacing the filter, run your water through a shower or something that uses a lot of water for 5-10 minutes to ensure that the bleach solution has passed through your pipes and your water is safe to drink.
