How do I Maintain a Whole House Carbon Filter?

A carbon filter loses its effectiveness as it becomes saturated with contaminants, consequently the carbon needs to be replaced on a regular basis.  Before purchasing any unit, determine the approximate period of time the carbon should last, and how much it should cost to replace it. If a filter is used longer than its rated lifetime, it may cause harmful contaminants to be flushed back into the drinking water. Bring a sample of water to Clean Water America’s water stores.  The samples should be both before the system and after the system to determine if the carbon is still effective.
