Re: Water Filter for House or Kitchen
Install a cheap ($20-50) whole-house filter and install a sediment cartridge. The cartridges are available in various grades, from 20 micron down to 5 micron. The smaller the micron number, the smaller the particles it can trap; but also the smaller grades will plug up and need to be replaced sooner.
If you hire a plumber, expect to pay another $100-150 for installation, and perhaps up to $100 for a permit.
After that's installed see what the results are. Then you can decide if more expensive treatments are necessary.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
