How to Replace Your Water Filter


Today’s environmentally conscious and wise homeowners are equipping their homes with all sorts of gadget. One of the most common house gadgets is the water filter. Water filters come in two forms. They can be the type that filters the water coming into the whole house, or they can fit on the faucet to purify the water out of that particular tap.  Having a water filter installed is an economical way to save water and to drink healthier water. But sadly, most homeowners allow their water quality to degrade after a while since they don’t change their water filter. Either they forget, or they don’t know how to change the water filter.

Changing a water filter varies from one type to another, and from one brand to another. A whole house filter will have one big filter located in the area where the water comes in to your home. It may be a little costlier to replace this filter and it may require a few more tools. Single unit filters, like the type that is attached to your faucets, are usually a matter of opening the filtration devices, removing the old filter, and inserting the new one.

Most filters are replaced in a similar fashion. First, you will want to turn off the water. Then, open the filtration unit and locate the filter. It can be inside a little compartment or attached to a pipe. Loosen it and remove the dirty filter and then insert the new one.

Of course, you will want to refer to the manufacturer’s directions for proper replacement of your particular filter. If you don’t have that information, you can usually find it online at the manufacturer’s website.

A clean, fully functional water filter can remove over ninety-nine percent of bacteria from the water coming in to your house from an outside source. When the filter is dirty, it cannot perform this task effectively and as a result, the water you and your family are drinking won’t be pure. So, spend a few dollars and invest a little bit of your time. Replace your water filter regularly and reap the benefits of a healthy source of pure drinking water in your own home.
