I have a seasonal cottage. The well water is a bit tough to drink. I have
installed an under the counter filter, but the output is too low to really
help. (My well turns on at 20psi and off at 40psi).
I would like to install two filters in parallel, with normal sized pipes
(not the 3/8" stuff that comes with the under counter filters) run to a real
faucet. I figure that should give me decent output. The problem is that
the pipes are in a 8" crawlspace, so they are essentially inaccessible, and
there is no place to put the filters; they will take up too much room under
But... the pipes to the kitchen sink loop out from under the house so that
a union is accessible for draining them. I can T into the cold water line,
put the filters on the outside of the house (right next to the sink) , and
run a pipe through the wall to just under the sink, where I can install a
faucet. (no one ever sees the cottage from that side, and I can put in a
cabinet if it is too ugly.
So, for my question...
Is there any fundamental reason (other than esthetics) that this is a bad
arrangement. I don't know a whole lot about house construction (obviously)
so I could be ignoring something basic. I am reasonably sure there are no
pipes or cables running though there.
