-This filter works great and will make your water look, smell and taste great
-Place a sediment filter in front of it so you don't clog this filter with large particulates
-You sediment filter should allow for cheap replacement cartridges or use a spin-down filter that never needs replacement
-I have well water and this lasted my family of four 23 months with a proper sediment pre-filter
This is a 5 micron filter, which will clog up if you don't place a sediment filter in front of it. I recommend the Rusco Spin-Down type of filter e.g. Rusco 1-1/2-250-F Polyester Screened Spin-Down Filter System. If you have lots of sediment (high turbidity level from a water test--well water can have high turbidity depending on your water supply) a spin-down filter is the way to go as you don't have to pay for replacement filters. The spin-down filter is made of clear plastic, so it's easy to see when it's getting dirty. When I see that it's dirty I open up the drain at the bottom of the filter and it cleans the majority of the sediment off of the filter. Periodically, about every 3-6 months, I end up taking the filter screen out of the spin-down filter, washing it out, and blowing it out with my air compressor. With this setup the Aqua-Pure AP917HD Whole House Replacement Filter, Quick Change Water Filter for the AP903 Water Filter System filter has lasted my family 23 months! Your mileage may vary, but I can promise it will last much longer than 6 months, as some of the bad reviews have stated, even with high sediment well water.
I have attached pictures highlighting my system layout as well as a close-up of the spin-down filter. This picture was taken not long after I cleaned it out and you can clearly see that it's already brown from my high sediment well water.
The other thing to note, as others have pointed out, is that you really want a shut-off valve before and after the filter so you can close off both valves and change the filters without a problem.
if you are only going to read this review before you buy this product, stop. You need to find out what this filter does, what the competitors do, and even what a Britta does.
This filter is one of the most affordable quality filters in this price range. 3M makes a slightly bigger one for those of you with bigger houses.
Since installing this filter, we have experienced the best water one could ever want. Our water is wonderful to drink, to cook with, to clean with, and to bathe in.
Nota Bene: You should check to see if your exterior hose bibs, outside faucets, get their water from this filter. The filtered water will not harm your yard, but you do not want to waste the filter on watering your lawn or washing your car.
I am now on my 3rd filter in less than four months. If these were $20 each, that would be fine. But at nearly $200 a piece, it's just not going to work for me.
I found some of the older "big blue" cartridge filters and you can buy new 20 cartridges for those here on Amazon for less than one of the AP917HD. I plumbed those into the the supply along with the Aqua-Pure - when I run out of the Aqua Pures I will just shut off that spur and try 3 of the 5 micron Big Blues instead.
