Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)



Q:  How does the City Water Whole House Water Filtration System work?
A:  Unlike other lower quality systems on the market, the factory-direct City Water Whole House system is completely loaded with over 50 pounds of NSF® certified high-grade media designed/developed to completely remove or significantly reduce Chlorine, Chloramine/Chloramines, amonia and/or particulate matter, cysts, copepods, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Synthetic Organic Compounds (SOCs), THMs (Chlorine by-product), PAHs (Chloramine by-product), trace heavy metals (i.e. lead, mercury, or iron), MTBEs, atrazine, benzene, xylene, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, tastes, odors and hundreds of other potential contaminants and harmful chemicals from the water entering your home.  The City Water Whole House utilizes a proprietary, patent-pending system design which facilitates an advanced water filtration process consisting of Multiple Stages.


Q:  How long does the City Water Whole House Whole House System last?
The unit is designed to be used for about or 2-5 years; depending on the amount of chlorine in your water. The saturation of the media by contaminants may occur faster in different areas depending upon the condition of the water and the actual amount of water run through the filter on a daily basis.  Generally, it is recommended that the unit be replaced when there is a noticeable return of off-tastes or odors and/or noticeable drop in water pressure (assuming a reasonably clean .20-micron prefilter is currently in use).


Q:  How do I replenish my existing City Water system after it is used up?
A:  An Environemntal Water Treatment Services professional will clean, sterilize and replenish the materials in your tank. Our convenient reminder notices will notify you when you are due for replacement.


Q:  How much maintenance is required for my City Water Whole House system?
A:  Typically, the only maintenance required for the City Water Whole House system is 0.20-micron prefilter replacement.  The City Water Whole House system is designed to be virtually maintenance-free for the life of the system.


Q:  How often should I change the .20-micron prefilter on my City Water Whole House system?
A:  Approximately every 6 months, depending upon the actual amount of amonia or particulate matter present in your water supply.  Because the .20-micron prefilter (white in color when first installed) is in a clear screw-on prefilter canister, it can easily be visually checked for dirtiness or build-up of amonia or particulate matter. Typically, when a .20-micron prefilter is extremely dirty, there will be a noticeable drop in water pressure through the City Water Whole House system since the water is no longer able to properly flow through it.

Q:  How much space does the complete City Water Whole House installation typically require?
A:  Requires minimal installation space, an area approximately 6-feet high by 3-feet wide by 1-foot deep.

Q:  Where should the complete City Water Whole House system be installed?
A:  The City Water Whole House system is a Point-of-Entry (POE) system, or whole-house/whole home system, and is usually installed, just after the water meter outside your home or in the garage. 

Q:  How difficult is it to install the complete City Water Whole House system?
A:  It's easy when you have a qualified Environemental Water Technician professional perform the installation to insure proper water quality and warranty validation.


Q:  How much does it cost to install the complete City Water Whole House system?
A:  Installation varies from site to site. Please fell free to contact us for an estimate by a qualified EWTS Technician.


Q:  Does the City Water Whole House remove COPEPODS from the water?
A:  Yes.  Since COPEPODES range from 30 microns to 50 microns in size, the P-1054 0.20-micron prefilter will remove the COPEPODS
