One of the most obvious things that is a necessity for all new construction homes is a water change filter. This is not a luxury, and it is absolutely required for maintaining a healthy water system. In addition to this, a water filter can also be a very good investment that you can enjoy for years to come.
To be able to have a water change filter in your new home, you have to have it installed at the time of construction. Unfortunately, most new construction homes do not include this item upon its purchase. So if you buy a new home and do not have a water change filter, you are going to have to pay for a replacement just to be able to enjoy your tap water.
There are two ways to get a water filter. The first is to get a water filter kit that you can pick up at the home store. This kit will include a pre-filled cartridge filter, and a filter attachment. The second way is to buy the filter from a plumbing supply store like Home Depot or Lowes. They will either have the filter already in stock or else can sell you one for a much lower price.
I’m not a fan of the “buy a filter kit at the home store” approach. I think there are a lot of issues that come up with that. For example, if you don’t know exactly what size filter you need, the kit might not be able to fit. While I’m not a fan of the home-store kit, I’m also not a fan of the vendor that sells it.
A lot of the other kit vendors will ask you to go to a hardware store and buy the filter, so you might end up spending a lot more money than you need to. Not to mention, if you buy from a hardware store, the vendor might be able to sell you a broken filter, which means you will have to buy the new one (or at least, replace the old one) after a time.
The problem is that the vendor only sells this filter with a specific capacity. That means you get a filter that’s too small for what you need, so you have to buy an extra one. The vendor makes a case for being the best, so you should buy the best filter they have or at least, get the second best filter. I have the feeling that the cheapest filter is not the best. That’s why I went to a hardware store.
Of course, as usual, it is not just the vendor who wants you to buy the best filter. They want you to buy the second best filter too. However, for the record, the second best filter is not necessarily any less expensive than the cheapest filter, since the second best filter is probably just as good. The cheapest filter is almost always the best. But again, the vendor wants you to buy the second best filter so you can get the cheapest filter.
The reason I like zero water change filters is that they have so many different sizes and capacities to choose from. The more you buy, the more water you will use. The more you buy, the more it will cost you. And the more it will cost you, the more you will save. After all, if you are using up all your water, then you have less to drink. So if you can cut your water use by half, you are saving money.
Sounds pretty good, but I have been using zero water change filters for about six months now and I don’t think I have ever used them all. And it’s not just because I’m cheap. I think I use more than half of them, especially at the high end. So I think I know how big of a waste this is.
Zero water change is a fairly common filter, but it’s also a fairly recent one. I bought mine used and it is a good investment. The best part about it is that you can adjust the water flow rate with the touch of a button. If you are not careful, you can cause a lot of damage by doing this, especially after heavy use.
