Home Master HMF3SDGFEC Review – 3 Stage

Main Properties

Home Master HMF3SDGFEC Whole House 3-Stage Water FilterThis Home Master whole house filtration system is suitable for well water. The purpose of this device is to provide all faucets and baths in your house with clean water. There are 1-inch ports in the unit which ensure that the device can filter 15 gallons per minute. In addition to this, the system has multi-gradient density sediment filters that provide finer filtration. You will probably be impressed when you read that this unit can eliminate all particles larger than 1 micron.

The good news is that these filters have high dirt holding capacity and are replaceable. So whenever they stop functioning properly, you can easily replace them. It has been calculated that the filters can clean 100,000 gallons before you need to change them. Depending on the quantity of water that you use, the filters can last for a year or even two.

If you are concerned that your water flow rate will be reduced when you use this filtration system, don’t be as the oversized filters will increase the flow rate. At the same time, these oversized filters will reduce the need for maintenance. If anything happens to any of the parts of this filtration system, you can use the 2-year limited warranty.

This system has 3 stages and that makes it a unique whole house water filter. In the first stage, there is a multi – gradient polypropylene sediment filter, which has four layers to provide efficiency. This stage is bacteria-resistant.  Its cartridge has a dirt holding capacity, which is three times larger than that of similar products. Typically the life expectancy of this filter is from 6 to 12 months.

The second stage is intended to decrease manganese, iron, and sulfur. Another benefit of this part is that it reduces the heater or water pipe’s chances of getting damaged. The third stage consists of activated carbon, which eliminates taste, chlorine, smell, and chemicals. Luckily, the activated carbon filter is characterized by a long life span. Home Master has improved the carbon contact time to ensure that you will have the purest water possible.

What Does It Remove?

The Home Master filtration system removes 95% of both ferrous and ferric iron, sediment, manganese. It can also eliminate other chemicals that change the water’s taste. So you will be granted the chance to drink pure natural water with no smell or taste of any chemicals. Bear in mind that this unit doesn’t remove calcium from the water, so if you want to get rid of this element, you need to get a water softener. The manufacturers advise you to test your water to check what contaminants there are in it before you decide which filtration system to buy.
