  • Fitler size recommendations

    I bought a house with well water w/o any water treatment. It has high iron content and copper plumbing sustained a lot of corrosion.
    I installed a sediment 10" cartridge and water softener.
    I'm planning on installing 30 than 5 micron sediment fitters and want to use 20" housing. Which one do you recommend should be bigger or both?
    Any other tips are appreciated.
    Thank you.

    We’ve had the Aquasana EQ-1000 installed for six months now without any problems. I had to remove it this week while our garage was getting an epoxy coating and all I can say is “wow”. As soon as I removed the filter, our water had an earthy, mossy smell, even our dog was hesitant to drink it. Taking a shower the next morning, after the water heaters had emptied the previously filtered water, wasn’t a pleasant experience. Be aware that your water pressure may drop. However, the only time I’ve noticed it is when I’ve had to open all the taps, for example after putting the unit back in place to clear out the “bad” water.
