Question Need Clean Water

I live in Florida and among other things, there is a lot of chlorine in the drinking water. I am buying a new home and would like to purchase a whole house filter that will clean the water as much as possible. does anyone have any suggestions on what to get?

Start at Home Depot or Lowe's and look at the regular low-end filters that are installed on the main line. Combo filters are good with the string wound/ paper filter and a carbon filter setup provide decent results with the idea of correcting the problem to your satisfaction.



This idea is a small investment, and without getting super critical of the situation. The filters are not real expensive, get on a regular schedule to change the filters, and graduate up to better filters and/or more involved filtering. The type I describe is the dual canister type set up.

Removing chlorine on a whole house basis is not a good idea. In many cases doing so will create an odor problem while seriously increasing the risk of a bacteria problem. A much better way is to remove the chlorine on a point of use basis, like a drinnking water filter etc..
