Installing a drinking water filter makes sense because it forms a barrier against dirt and particles entering your domestic water system. What many people don't know is a whole house filter is ideal for protecting drinking water supplies and appliances.
This filter is designed to provide high quality whole house filtration simply and safely by preventing particles such as rust and sand from entering your home's domestic water supply system. While there are many other filters on the market they all tend to have one thing in common - the filter elements aren't back flushed or replaced regularly because doing so is either time consuming or in many cases simply too complex. The BWT E1 filter is not only easy to install and effective in use, it’s ingenious design makes the age old problem of changing the filter child’s play.
The single lever operation shuts off the water supply, relieves any pressure and then releases the hygiene vault (the filter cup containing the filter element) in one simple action, allowing the filter element to be removed and recycled along with your domestic waste. A new filter can then be removed from its hygienically sealed wrapper and slipped back inside the hygiene cup. The single lever can then be pulled down, locking the new filer in place and switching the water back on. This revolutionary approach helps ensure that the filer is changed regularly, maintaining the integrity of the filter system.
And all in less than 30 seconds.
BWT has effectively mitigated the hygiene risks associated with conventional filters, as you no longer have to touch any parts that come into contact with the water! What's more, the E1 prevents splashing when replacing the hygiene vault and the water pipe does not run dry.
The BWT E1 filter is available as the E1 HWS (domestic water station) including pressure reducer or as the E1 EHF (single-lever filter) for applications without pressure reducer.
