I have enjoyed over the past few years using a chlorine filter that is
fitted at my showerhead. The difference is significant - the water
smells cleaner and more "natural". I am changing to a new showerhead
that doesn't readily take a filter - would it make sense to install a
whole-house filter? What should I look for in shopping for such a
It can get expensive filtering all the water in the house but your drinking
water will improve also. . Yes, the whole house type of filter will work,
but I'd put it in where the outdoor faucets are not filtered as you don't
need filtered water for washing the car. There is not much room between the
shower head and mixing valve so that would be difficult in most houses. You
don't want it in the hot water only line as the filters are not designed for
the high temperatures.
Thanks. Are there any disadvantages, such as not having chlorine in
the standing water in the toilets, and possibly diminished water
pressure? What should I look for when I choose a whole-house filter,
and about how much should I expect to spend? I wonder if a filter
system just for the shower intake but installed under the bathroom in
my crawl space may be a good option. Thanks!
