The Urban Defender whole house water filtration system by Sweetwater is unparalleled on the market because of its effectiveness, efficiency, durability and cost. Specially designed for urban homes, this small whole house filtration unit (13” x 66”) can be easily fitted into small spaces. However, this does not mean that it is only good for urban abodes, the Urban Defender is still competitive against all other filtration systems. Here, we list the seven features that make the Urban Defender the best whole house water filter in America today.
- Downflow System
The Urban Defender
- Weekly Reshuffling
The weekly backwash reshuffle in the UrbanDefender shuffles the carbon chips, presenting new carbon surface area for the contaminants, maintaining effectiveness.
- Choice of carbon
Some areas use chlorine to disinfect the water supply whereas others use chloramine. Both substances produce cacogenic by-products and different carbon types are used to filter them. Most systems don’t offer a choice and therefore can be useless at removing your area’s specific disinfectant. The Urban Defender has the choice of catalytic carbon for the removal of chloramine, and granular activated carbon for the removal of chlorine.
- Contact time
The Urban Defender (2 cu ft) limits itself to a flow rate of 10 gallons per minute. This is deliberate and allows the proper amount of contact time between the water and the carbon media so the water removal of contaminants is ensured.
- Larger versions are available
If you live in a large home, the standard Urban Defender might not be able to effectively handle the large amounts media types being used simultaneously. However, larger versions are available and are still cost effective against other competitors on the market. Custom built versions can also be created for any property, see here for whole house water filters.
After the initial maintenance-free period of between five and seven years, the media parts of the system can be replaced in just over an hour and allows the system to continue for another five to seven years without hassle.
- Certified by NSF (42 and 61)
The media used in the Urban Defender water filtration system have been certified by NSF (42 and 61), ensuring effectiveness.
