American Plumber WROR Filter Set Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today weíre looking at the American Plumber WROR replacement filter set. This set includes three D15ís and one D20. The D15ís are a 5 micron carbon impregnated cellulose filter, and the D20 is a granular activated carbon filter.
Now, though they are not a proprietary size and can be used in many industry standard size filter housings, this set was specifically designed with American Plumber reverse osmosis systems in mind. Like, for example, the WRO3000, the WRO3167, and the WRO3500.
Now, the D15ís are used as a pre-filter before the membrane and the D20 is used as a polishing filter after the membrane. The D15ís need to be changed approximately every 3 months, while the D20 only needs to be changed once per year.
Now, donít underestimate the importance of these filters. The pre-filter plays a crucial role in the reverse osmosis system by removing chlorine, which most membranes are sort of allergic to; they can be burned chemically by the presence of chlorine. So removing chlorine and making sure that that filter is working properly is very important to the life and efficiency of the membrane, which is really doing the heavy lifting in your RO system.
And of course the polishing filter is the last thing that the water touches before it touches your lips, and it makes the water taste great! Water is very pure after itís gone through the membrane, but oddly, it tastes a bit off, and you need a good polishing filter so that that water tastes great. So donít underestimate the importance of these filters.
Now, why the kit comes with this many filters when none of the systems I mentioned are four stage systems, I really donít know. I think maybe they were hoping that youíd have a spare one on the shelf so that when you needed it youíd be able to replace it right away.
For whatever reason it comes with this many filters and it is very handy to have them available when it comes time to change them.
Again, this is the American Plumber WROR replacement filter set for the American Plumber Reverse Osmosis System, and Iím your host Tony the Filter Doctor.
