The EcoPlus system filters levels of Chlorine and other compounds to improve water quality, and prevents limescale for your whole home. Also descales existing pipework. Main filter life 3 Years.
Cost effective chemical and salt free alternative to a water softener
The EcoPlus Whole House Water Filter uses the latest in scale prevention and water filtration technology to filter the water for your whole home or business premises. Once installed the system will filter all of your water to a high level, descale existing pipework, and prevent future scale from forming - without adding any chemicals or salt into your water! The scale prevention filter media is proven to be 99.6% effective, making this an extremely effective system.
The first filter pod on the system contains a multi media filter which will filter levels of Chlorine, THM’s, PCB’s, and reduce levels of heavy metals (if present) such as Lead, Cadmium, Chromium, Mercury and Iron. The filter media also has antibacterial properties to help control bacterial growth. This produces good tasting water for the whole home which you can drink from any tap. This is also great for the garden for plants, paddling pools, de-chlorinated water for fish keeping, etc.
You will need to replace this first filter on the system just once every 12 months (dependent upon usage and incoming water quality)
The scale prevention takes place within the second filter without adding any salt or chemicals into the water. The filter does this by using a process called Template Assisted Crystallization (TAC), which basically conditions the water and converts the hardness minerals in the water (Calcium and Magnesium) into harmless, inactive microscopic crystals. This prevents the Calcium and Magnesium from bonding together to form limescale, and also over time will descale existing pipework and appliances. Because of this process no natural minerals are lost from the water, and no chemicals or salts are added either.
Water which has undergone this filtration process has a softening effect which prevents scale from forming in pipework and appliances, around sinks and washbasins, and will help prolong the life and efficiency of your appliances. The scale prevention media is effective even in the hardest water areas has been tested independently against the international protocol for scale prevention with a 99.6% effectiveness rating.
You will need to replace this second filter on the system just once every 36 months / 756,000 litres* (depending upon incoming water quality)
The system comes complete with new filters, pods, and mounting brackets. The system has 3/4" BSP threaded nipples pre-installed, and is simply connected inline with your cold water mains pipe to filter the water for the whole home / premises. This is a very straight forward installation for any plumber.

Frances GWe have used this water filter for a year now and I could taste the difference in the water as soon as the filter was fitted. It has kept our kettle descaled and a plumber who came round to repair our washing machine couldn't believe how clear of scale our element was, considering the water hardness where we live.
EcoPlus Whole House Water Filter and Water SofteningWe bought and had this fitted about 6 weeks ago. We didn't lose any water pressure and our water is now great tasting and super for bathing/showering. All smell of clorine has gone! The descaling is still taking place.
Few Tips on Installation ...Firstly - this is a great product and well constructed - feels very solid. I would recommend it for it's quality, and now we have been using it in the house for about 2 weeks, we have definitely noticed an improvement (shower/bath/dishwasher/tea/etc.). Our house has two adults and two teenage kids and it seems to cope okay with demand.
EcoPlus Whole House Water FilterWe had this system installed in February 2017. We live in a very hard water area and I would say that this system is about 90% effective for us , as we still have a little scaling in our kettle and sometimes there is a film of scum when having a cup of tea. However, the water tastes good and is so much better than previously. I would still recommend the system.
