Before you buy a filter from Woder, consider these important facts:
Determine how old the plumbing pipes are in your house.
Find out which types of contaminants have been detected in your tap water by your local municipality.
Our Advanced Water Filter is one of the highest rated filters sold on Amazon Prime. It removes VOC’s, lead, heavy metals, chlorine (99%) and other contaminants (99%), odors and bad tastes. This filter is also bacteriostatic, which means it prevents the colonization of any microorganisms, within the filter. It’s also been proven to remove mercury, PFC’s, glyphosate, chromium 6, and turbidity.
If you’re concerned you have elevated levels of sediment, lead, heavy metals, or fluoride, combine our Advanced Filter, with a first-stage cartridge that removes these specific contaminants with a dual-stage system.
To dramatically reduce the fluoride in your tap water, our dual-stage fluoride filter removes 95% of fluoride, as well as chloramines. It is also effective in removing arsenic. Our filters do not use silica alumina, or aluminate to reduce fluoride. The media uses bone char as part of the components to remove fluoride. We use silver nitrate for the antibacterial in all our filters.
Woder filters use a proprietary technology called Selective Filtration™ to remove 99.99% of contaminants, while maintaining essential minerals vital to your health, including calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Make sure the fittings to your cold water lines match the fittings on the filter you choose. There are two predominant types of fitting connections in the US:
Direct Connect Fittings: For Under Sink installations, the plumbing industry uses a fitting that’s called Direct Connect. It’s most commonly used under your kitchen and bathroom sinks. The inlet hose (flowing IN from your water supply line) has ⅜ inch female compression with ¼ inch standard pipe thread. The outlet hose (flowing OUT to your faucet) is ⅜ inch compression with 1/4 inch standard pipe, (in accordance with the US Building Code).
Quick Connect or “John Guest” Fittings: For water lines used with refrigerator water dispensers, ice machines and RVs, you need an “Inline” filter with “Quick Connect” fittings. Quick Connect fittings are also called “John Guest” or “JG” fittings. They are ¼ inch and fit all ¼ inch plastic flex or “PEX” tubing and flexible copper tubing used to supply water to ice makers and refrigerators, etc. Quick Connect fittings DO NOT FIT BRAIDED HOSES.
Test your water BEFORE and AFTER you install a water filter! Everyone should know the quality of their unfiltered and filtered tap water. Learn more by contacting us at: info at woder dot com.
