What kind of water filter should I use?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
This depends on what you want to filter out of your water. You can determine what is in your water by taking it to a lab to have it tested. There are also home testing kits available that are easy to use and meet EPA standards. Once you know what you are trying to eliminate, determining what kind of filter you need will be easy. To filter out most odors, tastes, chlorine, and particles, an activated charcoal filter works fine.
If you have other things to filter for, such as heavy metals, parasites, pesticides, and other pollutants in addition to the odors, tastes, chlorine, and particles, you may want to check out reverse osmosis filters. The downfall to reverse osmosis is that quantities of pure water are limited due to the length of time it takes the water to pass through the membrane.
