Letter: Reader shares water filtration setup

Wm C Grant writes:
What I have: incoming line, connected to a Whirlpool model WHELJ1 Gold Central Water Filtration System. There are no filters to change. There is a waste discharge line that you connect to a drain, and I use the kitchen drain line. Next in line is a Whole house filtration unit. This has filters, 6 month intervals, I use a Whirlpool WHK-GD25BB filter, it is sediment, NSF tested and certified. This is then the line going to the house. This is the water that comes from my tap. It has no bad taste.

When I installed the sediment filter housing, we bypassed the first system, and water tasted bad. We restored the system, and water tasted ok.

As for coffee, I have installed an Eden Filter RO 5 system. Read the side of a bottled water--they come from RO systems.

Well there you go, this is what works for us . It's better for all equipment on the water train. Thank you have a very Blessed day. --Wm C Grant
