Think of your water filter system a bit like a car. If you don’t change the oil filter and oil in your car, the oil will get dirty and stop lubricating the engine. Eventually the engine will wear out…and your car will grind to a halt.
Well, it’s much the same with a water filter cartridge.
But how long does it take before that happens with your water filter and how long does a standard under sink water filter cartridge actually last?
Well, it really depends on the type of water filter you buy. But where you live and the quality of the water has a huge influence too. For example, in an area with lots of contaminants in the water, the filter cartridge just won’t last as long.
However, in most metropolitan areas, a WFA Platinum inline water filter cartridge in an average family home will last approximately 12 months.
Here are a few clues to help you know when to change your water filter cartridge.
It’s always good to have a spare cartridge under your sink so it’s ready to change over, if you start to notice any of the above signs. It’s easy to do this with our special deals on double packs.
