Introducing the New Eco-Plus Whole House Water Filter and Water Softener
Q. What are the benefits of your Eco Plus Whole House Water Filter?
A. One of our whole house filter systems can provide every tap in your home with purified water, this greatly improves the taste and odour of the water and also contains antibacterial filter media which helps to kill bacteria and control bacteria growth. Our Whole House System will also have a softening effect on the water which prevents lime scale build up in pipes and appliances such as combi boilers, washing machines, etc… and it also does this softening effect without the need for any chemicals or salts to be added to the water, making the water perfectly safe to drink (and great tasting due to the filtration)
The Eco + Whole House System is a fantastic one off investment for your home filtration.
Q. What does your Whole House Water Filter System filter?
A. The Eco Plus whole house system will reduce levels of many different chemicals and compounds from the water including: Chlorine, THM’s, PCB’s, Heavy metals (if present) Lead, Cadmium, Chromium, Selenium, Mercury, Iron and heavy metals – see list BELOW
|Eco plus system effectively recudes the following:|
|THMs ECBs TMEs|
|Solvents incl. PCBs,PAHS|
|Trace Heavy Metals (on exchange)|
Q. Will my laundry be improved?
A. Your laundry may be improved due to the reduction of scale in the washing machine and also due to high levels of chlorine being removed from the water
Q. What about the dishwasher?
A. Yes. The dishwasher will benefit as there will be a reduction of scale
Q. We use a lot of water for the garden. It seems a shame to use the whole house water filter for this, is there a way of by passing the filter?
A. Yes, we fit by pass valves as standard to all of our Whole House Systems to allow you to do this for the garden/cleaning cars/pressure washing/ filling of pools etc. The valves also allow filter changes to be done without cutting off the water supply to the rest of your home.
Q. How long do the filters last?
A. Normally 2 years or 200,000 litres
This is changed every 12 months and is very easy to do so, we also supply this spare filter as standard, however if your water supply contains high amounts of sediment, then the filters may need changing before then. For example – if your local water company repairs a leak in the road, then your tap water may be cloudy for a short period following the repair, due to mud dissolved in it. This mud may clog up the sediment primary filter of the Eco+ Whole House System. To avoid this we recommend using the by- pass valves until the water runs clear again.
Q. We have a combi boiler and cold water feed electric shower. Will the Whole House System affect these?
A. Our system has been designed with large industrial use filter pods to minimise any potential pressure loss. To date we have not experienced any loss of pressure with any of the installations we have done due to this.
Q. Can we change our own filters?
A. Yes, it is very easy and we supply the tool to remove the used filter and replace with new. However if you prefer us to do this for you we offer a full engineer service, call us for details.
Q. Is the system easy to install?
A. Yes. A plumber or competent DIY person will be able to fit this to your home or business property.
We supply the flexible hoses and connections with the system, so you do not have to source and purchase these separately.
Q. do you offer a fitting service?
A. Yes, please call us for details, cost will depend on location and whether a survey is needed,
Q. If we move home, can we take the filters with us?
A. Yes, this is not a problem. The unit can easily be detached and re fitted at your new home.
Q. How long does the unit last?
A. As there are no moving parts, and provided there is no external damage to your system, it should last 20 years plus. We do recommend that the gasket seals are replaced every 3 years as these eventually lose effectiveness. Standard 1 year warranty is given.
Q Is the water softened?
A. yes, but it will not be to the same degree as full conventional water softener, we have other products for hard water areas, our Hard water treatment system is effective for this.
Q. what about the minerals in the water, are these removed?
A. no, the filtration media retains the natural minerals in the water
Q How does the filtration work?
A. It uses a new type of filtration known as Active Ceramics, for more information on this type of filtration click on the “active ceramics explained” link on the right-hand side of our homepage
