From the Manufacturer
Aqua-Pure® Whole House Replacement Filter AP917HD helps to reduce particulate and unpleasant chlorine taste and odor in up to 100,000 gallons of water, as much as a year’s supply for a larger home. Replacing the disposable filter cartridge is a clean and simple process, requiring no tools and no contact with particulate-laden filter material.
Manufactured by 3M Purification Inc. (formerly CUNO, Inc.), Aqua-Pure® AP917HD cartridges and companion water filter systems are made from FDA CFR-21 compliant materials. The cartridges feature five-micron carbon-block filtration with a non-woven blended pleat media. They have a flow rate of 20 gallons (75.7 liters) per minute, a temperature range of 40-100°F (4.4-37.8°C), and a pressure range of 25-125 psi (172-862 kPa). Replacement is recommended annually, after filtration of 100,000 gallons of water, or if there is a noticeable reduction in flow.
A whole-house water filter (also known as a point-of-entry filtration system) may reduce a variety of contaminants in the water supply, including rust, particulate, and chlorine taste/odor. A whole-house water purification system may save money in a variety of ways. Depending on the contaminants reduced, the filtered water helps protect and improve the performance of refrigerators, ice makers, water heaters, dishwashers, clothes washers, and other appliances; boost the cleaning action of detergents; and prevent staining of fixtures and clothing. Clear, tasty tap water can reduce the economic and environmental costs of bottled drinking water. Before purchasing a water filter system, it is a good idea to have your water tested, a service provided at no cost by many Aqua-Pure® contractors.
