The sediment and carbon filter housings are all standard 10" transparent housings with 1/4" threaded inlet and output openings. Clear housings allow you to see the filters and, as a result, monitor the depletion of the filters. This takes the guesswork out of knowing when to update your filters.
Larger or more remote locations may require housing sizes other than the standard 10". If this is the case for you, please specify during ordering what size housing you need. The manufacturer can then build it specifically for you with the correct inlets and outputs.
Clear housings are required on all models except the mini-filter. The mini-filter has a black housing that prevents debris from getting into the filter bed. Although this design keeps contamination out, it does limit your ability to visually inspect the unit.
If you plan to live locally and have a garage, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to install your own RVSystems mini-filter. We've seen many people do it successfully over the years. It's definitely not impossible! For anyone else looking to do it themselves, we recommend contacting a local builder or engineer for assistance.
We offer two different methods for installing a mini-filter: pre-installed or self-installation.
There will be a lot of little air bubbles in the water when you first start utilizing the system. It should go away in a few days. If it doesn't, call us for assistance.

They are recommended for households that are not also using other water treatments methods such as filtration or disinfection.
The 475 Pro Series is a high capacity (9.5 gpm maximum output) reverse osmosis system that delivers clean, reliable water even in large homes or offices. It includes a carbon block filter that reduces iron stains and odor from tap water, a copper tube radiator for stable cold water, and an oversized molded plastic reservoir capable of holding up to 75 gallons of water. The system can be installed either under the kitchen sink or behind the wall and has been certified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for use with potable water.
Reverse osmosis uses a membrane technology to filter water molecules from its source while allowing dissolved solids like sodium and chlorine to pass through. This produces water that is purer than what comes out of a faucet alone, but it cannot be drunk without further treatment. However, organic contaminants present in well water may cause problems for some people. For example, herbicides used on nearby property might harm infants or individuals with skin conditions like eczema.
A high-quality carbon filter may remove up to 99 percent of chlorine from water. These, however, are not present in Brita filters but are found in reverse osmosis systems. As seen in the table above, these methods are the most effective in removing unpleasant tastes and smells.
Brita uses a carbon filter to remove chemicals such as chlorine that cause odor and taste problems. However, this type of filter is different from a standard carbon filter used in other brands of pitchers. The Brita filter does not contain any padding to protect it against damage when pressing down on the top of the pitcher with weighty ingredients such as ice and salt. In fact, the filter's housing is made of plastic which can crack or break if placed under too much pressure.
Reverse osmosis systems use a membrane to filter out all kinds of contaminants from water, including heavy metals, bacteria, and taste-causing substances. Because they are very expensive, these systems are used only for commercial or large-scale residential applications.
Overall, Brita water filters are better than ordinary bottled water because they use an advanced technology that removes many types of contaminants that other brands do not remove at all. Also, they provide some level of protection against pollutants that are not removed by carbon filters. Finally, they come with a one-year warranty that covers parts replacement if anything goes wrong with your pitcher after purchase.
Here are the best whole-house water filtration systems you should consider today:
A plenum box is an HVAC component that consists of an enclosed box linked to ductwork. You'll normally find them near your HVAC system's air handler or furnace, which is also where the filter is. To replace the air filter, remove it from between the plenum boxes. Be sure not to touch any electrical components while working with the filter! After removing the old filter, install the new one in its place.
The main purpose of the plenum is to provide a large internal area for airflow. This is necessary because air conditioners and heat pumps need to move large volumes of air at high speeds to be effective. The larger the flow area, the more air that can be moved through a system without creating undue pressure differences within it.
The plenum should be located close to the heater or air conditioner since this will be using most of its capacity. If it is not located close by, the system may not be operating at its best efficiency. Also, make sure the openings into the plenum are smaller than 2 inches (5 cm) each. Anything bigger than that and the air won't be able to flow as easily through the box, which could cause problems with pressure equalization.
If the plenum has removable panels, they should be removed to allow access to any wiring contained within it.
