If you’re looking for a great whole house filtration system, the Home Master HMF3SDGFEC is a quality choice, especially if you’re using city water which is full of chemicals, iron, and dirt. When we researched this system, we’ve found that installation is easy and simple – not many people need the help of a professional plumber. The installation manual is easy to read and follow.
This Home Master whole house filtration system features three-stage filtration. This means that the system includes three separate filters. All of the filters are durable, high-quality, and require little maintenance.
Let’s take a closer look:
First, there’s a huge multi-gradient depth sediment filter made from quality polypropylene. Its main purpose is to eliminate dirt, silt, rust, and other sediment from your water. It’s multi-gradient, which means it features multiple layers of filtration, in this case it has four layers. The shell filters up to 25 microns, followed by 10- and 5-micron layers, and the 1-micron core gets rid of even the smallest particles.
The second filter featured in this system is a specialized iron filter. It’s a radial flow filter which gets rid of iron in your water up to 3ppm! So if you have iron in your water, this phase is a must. It also helps with hydrogen sulphide and manganese.
The third and final filter in the system is a carbon filter. Made from high-quality coconut shell, this filter features radial flow, and it eliminates various chemicals from your water. Our research showed that it effectively removes any unnatural tastes and odors from the water it filters.
One of the cons of this system is that it won’t get rid of microorganisms. Also, some users complain that the ports featured in this system are plastic, and when we did research on that, it showed that getting a tight seal on the system might be a bit difficult when installing it.
On the other hand, all the filters in this system are specially designed not to reduce water pressure. Also, the filters are oversized, which means you only need to change them approximately once a year!
And when they do need replacing, it’s easy to get new ones. The Home Master Sediment Filter is a quality choice as a first-stage replacement filter. It’s designed for this system, so it also lasts for approximately 12 months, and it’s easy to install because it fits the system perfectly.
For the second stage, the Home Master Radial Flow Iron Reducing Filter is a great replacement choice. It does everything the original filter does and is easy to install. The Home Master Radial Flow GAC is a good choice if you need the third-stage filter replaced. It’ll fit perfectly and won’t interfere with your water pressure. Our research shows that it only causes a <1 PSI pressure drop!
