How often do I need to change these replacement water filters?
Key factors of water quality and water quantity used are site specific for families relying on tank water, and these directly determine when replacement water filters are required.
Manufacturers recommend annual water filter cartridge replacement.
But our rural water filters are often made to work hard because of variable water quality.
Many tank water users will be familiar with reduced water quality at certain times of the year.
Heavy rainfall events may also stir up tank sediment for example.
You may notice a change in water taste and/or smell.
And perhaps reduced clarity even after filtering.
Both are direct indicators of the need for replacement water filter cartridges.
Water pressure loss in the house: slow running kitchen tap/ reduced shower pressure.
This indicates the current filter cartridge is loaded, and should be quickly replaced.
Depending on water quality/water usage, the above indicators may well occur before the manufacturer’s 12 month replacement guideline.
And after 12 months, some water filter cartridges may hold a bacterial slime which will choke off water throughput, leading to pressure loss at the tap.
