Whole House Filter Install Outside

Hello, i Live in Houston Texas. I am wanting to install a Whole House Filter outside my house. Is there any problem installing one outside in the heat? Is there a specific filter that i should get that will handle the outside temperature?

thanks for the help

Many different types of filters are installed outside all over the US. Don't get a clear housing. They seem to grow a lot of alge. What are you trying to remove?

I have black stains in the toilet bowls. And thick black stuff that looks like calcium on the faucet screens.

Thanks

Ditto on what biermech said.

Try a white housing or a reflective wrap to keep heat down. You should never have to worry about sunlight damaging the parts or making the water too hot.

You also need to know just what your water quality is to select the proper filter.
