Is It Crucial To Replace Filters After A Long Time Using?

Optimal water quality and performance is key to the enjoyment of your instant filtered water system. It will remove the harmful contaminants from tap water and make it clean and healthy for your family.

However, keep in mind that most standard filters can’t entirely filter your water, but just reduce metals and chemicals in it. That fact makes the replacement of filters crucial. If you do it regularly, you will provide the best possible water for your family.

In general, you should clean or replace your water filter cartridge every two to six months. However, you should do it earlier when noticing that the water-color becomes darker or the water flow slows down. It will depend on a few factors, including:

  • The brand of the system – PENCA always recommends the ideal period – 6 months for cleaning or replacing the filter.
  • Quality of water – It varies depending on the place you live in, which means that water may contain different levels of impurities. 
  • Filter capacity – The filtering capacity ranges from 265 to 1585 gallons (1000 – 6000 l), or even more, depending on the model chosen.
  • The number of users – If more household members live in the house, you should replace your filters more frequently.However, the frequency of replacing the filter will also depend on the particular type of device you use in your home.
  • Types of filter – Every model of filter you use has a recommended period of usage. After that, you still need to change it.
