What is a point of entry water filter?
A point of entry water filter (also known as “whole house”) is a filtration system that is installed near your home’s main water supply. This type of treatment system filters all of your home’s water before it is sent to the individual fixtures in your home. That means that a point of entry water filter provides filtered water for ALL the water used inside and outside of your home.
Point of entry water treatment systems can use a number of different filtration methods depending on the individual needs of your home. Often, point of entry systems are used in conjunction with a point of use drinking water system.
TWQ offers a variety of Whole House water systems Including:
Wall mounted cartridge type systems such as our popular Italian made TWQ-3000 Whole House Water Purification System ( shown here )
The TWQ-3000 is a good choice for smaller homes/condos, designed to use standard cartridges as well as a variety of specialized cartridges. With this system we can target specific water contaminants such as lead, chlorine, chloramines. The housings are standard sized and non proprietary 4.5″ X 20″ cartridges. You will avoid single source, proprietary design, replacement cartridges for your water filter system.
Because the size is industry standard you will be able to have any company you choose service your system or service it yourself. Proprietary type cartridges always use excessive amounts of plastic to create their product and are far less ” green ” than standard sized non proprietary counterparts. You will benefit not only from more competitive pricing, but also by being able to upgrade your filtration system to improved purification technologies from a variety of makers as they become available.
