Dirty drinking water and undue pressure on your pump are the top two reasons why regular filter maintenance is really important.
If your filter is filthy then it’s not doing what it’s meant to and your drinking water could be at risk of contamination. For anyone who has suffered from water borne diseases, you will know that they can be a lot more severe than say food poisoning and certainly something you should try to avoid at all costs – especially for those who are vulnerable such as children or the elderly.
If your filters are clogged up it’s also going to reduce the flow in your system and your pump is going to be working overtime to try and get your water where it’s needed. If things get really bad, your pump will eventually stop working.
Every property and environment will differ slightly, for example, during certain times of the year pollen getting into the tank and blocking the filters can be a major problem in some areas so filters need to be checked and replaced more frequently.
Another thing we check during regular maintenance is whether or not your filters are big enough for your pump – looking at the whole system or the big picture means we can ensure your filters are doing what they should be and your pump is supported by all the right equipment.
