Shop for Residential Replacement & Inline Water FiltersThere are many different types of replacement water filters: some generic, some proprietary; and some are just built to your specific design or needs. Each filter inside that every unit has a function it needs to perform in order to get your water purified. There are some standard filters that come in almost every system and a few specialty filters that are required for certain situations.The most standard Residential Replacement Water Filters are the sediment and carbon filters. Sediment filters do exactly just that – remove sediment, dirt, sand, rust and other solid particulates. Carbon filters remove the unseen elements of water such as Chlorine, Lead, THM, VOC, and many other items but can improve bad taste and odor. Both of these filters alone can be used as a whole house filter or as a pre-filter to something else like reverse osmosis, or UV germicidal disinfection. Inline water filters are typically used as a post-filter but can also be used as a standalone (sometimes seen as refrigerator filters).
