Tip #1: Establish a Regular Cleaning Routine

Regular cleaning of the inside of your whole home water filtration system is important to avoid build-ups of minerals, contaminants, dirt, and other debris within the filters. It’s important that these cleanings are frequent and thorough — Purity Bay recommends cleaning weekly to ensure your water remains as clean and delicious as possible.

We recommend against the use of any harsh cleaning products or chemicals, as these harmful toxins can easily be absorbed into the water that you and your family consume. Be sure you’re cleaning and sanitizing each part of the system, including the water dispenser, line, and cap assembly for best results.

Keep an eye on your whole home water filtration system to determine whether it needs to be cleaned. If your water starts to taste or feel different, it’s probably time for a scrub down.

Tip #2: Remember to Replace Your Filters Regularly or As Necessary

Depending on your system, you’ll have to replace your cartridges at some point, with some requiring more frequent replacements than others. On most systems, you’ll find a feature, such as a button or light, that indicates whether the filter needs to be replaced or not. Our team at Purity recommends taking note of any changes in your water, as this may be an indication it’s time to change the filters if it’s been a while.

When you purchase your system, be sure to take note of how often the filters will typically need to be replaced. We recommend making a note on the calendar to ensure you won’t miss it, as doing so can lead to further, more expensive maintenance requirements.

Tip #3: Always Follow Manufacturer Instructions

To maintain your whole-home water filtration system, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your particular system, as there are various systems available.

Some systems have different recommendations for how often to clean, how to clean, and how and when to replace the filters. For any questions you may have, reach out to our experts at Purity Bay! We can help you understand the maintenance instructions for your particular whole home water filtration system.

Tip #4: Schedule Regular Professional Inspections

To keep your whole-home water filtration system in excellent working condition, we recommend scheduling regular inspections with our professionals. Our team will thoroughly check your entire system for issues and ensure it operates efficiently. We’ll examine all components for cleanliness, functionality, and effectiveness.

If you suspect a problem with your water filtration system, contact our experts immediately. Keep an eye out for signs such as unusual sounds or taste. Addressing issues promptly can save you time and money in the future and prevent permanent damage to your system.

Tip #5: Take Your Type of Filtration System Into Account

Depending on the type of water filtration system you have in your home, maintenance may look a little different. At Purity Bay, we offer a wide range of water filtration systems, including reverse osmosis and water softening systems. When you determine how to maintain your system, be sure to pay attention to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Proper maintenance can make reverse osmosis systems last for years. Identify the filters in each stage of your system, as it may have three, four, or five stages. Monitor the filter replacement schedule closely.

For a long-lasting water softening system, prevent salt bridges. These form when a hard crust develops in the brine tank and obstructs salt dissolution, rendering the system ineffective. If the tank is full but the water isn’t softening, inspect it for a salt bridge and dislodge it using a broom handle.

Choose salt carefully to enhance the effectiveness of your water softening system. Our professionals can recommend the best type of salt for your system.

Tip #6: Call a Professional for Any Repairs

Although DIY instructions may be available online for repairing your whole-home water filtration system, Purity Bay suggests hiring a professional.

We can identify the root of the issue and carry out appropriate repairs, as many factors contribute to a properly functioning water filtration system. Our experts can quickly restore each component to its full functionality in no time!
