Tips for Maintaining Your Home’s Filtration System

Having a plumber install a whole-house water filtration system is the first step to making certain you and your family have clean and safe water. If you want to ensure that your water continues to be free of contaminants and other harmful elements, you must maintain your home’s water filtration system. Here are some tips for maintaining your water filtration system.

Change Your Filter Regularly

To ensure that contaminants continue to be removed from your water, the filter in your home’s filtration system will need to be changed regularly. Plumbers recommend that filters be changed every three to six months. To make sure the job is done correctly and that nothing gets broken, contact a plumber to perform this task for you. The plumber will not only ensure the job is done right but he or she will also make sure the correct filter is used since different filters are used in different filtration systems.

Prepping Your Filtration System Before Going on Vacation

If you have an upcoming vacation, you should prep your home’s filtration system before you go. Here is how to prep your home’s filtration system before you leave on vacation:

  • Shut off your water at the main water supply so your filtration system will not have to work when you are gone.
  • Turn off your filtration system’s clean rinse function so it is not filtering the same water repeatedly. When you turn this function off, make sure to manually run two filtration cycles upon returning from your vacation, and then enable the clean rinse function again.
  • Bastrop, TX seldom experiences freezing temperatures; however, if your vacation takes place during the winter, you will want to unplug and drain your filtration unit in the exceedingly rare event freezing temperatures do occur. If your unit freezes, it can become damaged.

Having Inspections Regularly

Finally, to make sure your home’s filtration system continues to function optimally, you must have it inspected regularly. Ideally, experts recommend you have your home’s filtration system inspected and serviced every six to 12 months. To have your system inspected, contact a licensed plumber.
