Description of the appliance

Whirlpool Water Filter

Whirlpool Water Filter

This filtration water system is a convenient size and is suitable for home use. Unlike a lot of other water filters, it does not take up a lot of space. By removing sediment and chlorine from the water, the appliance eliminates the unpleasant smell and taste of water caused by the chemical.

The system has an automatic cleaning system that does not require a manual change of filters for ten years, after which the appliance must be replaced. The user can program and control the frequency and duration of the cleaning process in the Whirlpool water filter. All the filters in the system are cleaned and the system uses up to 5 gallons of water for cleaning purposes.

How it works

The Whirlpool water filter includes a carbon media to filter out chlorine and other toxins. The appliance includes a filter that also removes other particles such as sediment. Also, there is quartz under bedding that increases the water flow and the distribution of water. It has been tested to ensure that it has the capability of eliminating particles down to a size of 40 microns.

The filtration system is controlled electronically and features a display screen with buttons. The settings can be changed or adjusted.

The water filter system comes with almost everything required for installation. The items that are not included with the appliance are two 1*NPT female connectors and extra tubing to connect to the pipes.

Additional useful tips

This water system does not affect household water pressure. In fact it maintains it. It does not require cartridge replacements, as they are frequently cleaned and will continue to work efficiently for around ten years. The automatic cleaning settings are usually set so that the cleaning system will activate after 14 days, but it can be adjusted to clean itself more frequently. In case of installation difficulties, the system comes with a Do It Yourself, Kit, that includes all the necessary information and details for the plumbing task.
