Both Pre-Filters and Main filters must be changed regularly in order to reduce the contaminants for which they are certified. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions that come with your water treatment system and replace filter cartridges and other items as recommended using NSF certified filters.
Why filters must be changed? Many filtration systems use carbon, charcoal or a blend of filter media to help reduce impurities. These systems generally reduce contaminants in one of two ways:
- Some contaminants are filtered mechanically, meaning the particles are large enough to be trapped in the pores of the filter. Eventually, the pores of the filter become so clogged with debris that water is unable to move through the filter effectively.
- Other contaminants adhere or adsorb to the surface of the filter media. Over time, the surface area of the filter media becomes filled and no more contaminants can be adsorbed. While the former is easy to spot (the flow rate of the water being produced by the system slows dramatically), it’s not as easy to tell when the surface area of the filter media has become full and needs to be changed.
How often they need to be changed The recommended filter change cycle varies from one product to the next. Home filtration systems usually have established “service cycles,” however extra precaution should be take when tap water contains high levels of contaminants. Certification to NSF/ANSI 53 requires manufacturers to state the filter capacity, which is the volume of water that can pass through a filter before it must be changed.
To ensure the filter continues to reduce contaminants, replace it when it has reached the manufacturer’s recommended filter capacity. The filter capacity will be listed in the specifications on your product’s owner’s manual or on the product packaging. Many products also have a device that indicates when the filter must be changed.
