A whole house carbon filter is a convenient, cost efficient way to effectively remove or reduce many of the undesirable chemicals, disinfectant by-products, and volatile organic compounds commonly found in municipal water supplies.
Whole House Carbon CX Filters are designed for household use and ideal for chloramines and chlorine taste and odor reduction. The system contains Centaur catalytic carbon which is more efficient in filtering chloramines than standard granular activated carbon.
For a whole house carbon system to work effectively, it needs to contain the proper type of carbon based on your water’s content. Additionally it needs to be properly sized for the home it’s installed in. On a properly selected and sized system, you should expect a minimum of five years, and likely longer, before the media needs to be replaced. The variance in longevity is based on water consumption levels and the levels of impurities in your water supply. Carbon beds can be rebedded when the effectiveness of the carbon is exhausted.
