An outstanding high performance four stage whole house/point-of-entry (POE) water filter system designed specifically for the removal of Chloramines from your water.
If your water company uses Chloramines instead of Free Chlorine as their primary disinfectant, a normal filter system designed to remove chlorine will not be effective. You need a system that is specifically designed to remove chloramines. See below about how to determine what is in your water.
It is also effective at reducing other harmful contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, rust, sediment, water soluble metals, and industrial solvents. It has a rated capacity of 400,000 gallons for an estimated effective filter life of 4 years.
Made in the USA.
Austin Springs Chloramines Whole House Water Filter Features
4 Stage Filter System
Stage 1 = 10" Sediment Pre-Filter captures rust, sediment, and silt (replace 2-4 times/year depending on water chemistry and usage).
Stage 2 = An upgraded Catalytic Carbon filter reduces chloramines, chlorine, and other chemical compounds.
Stage 3 = An additional larger tank of Catalytic Carbon further reduces chloramines and other chemical contaminants as well as pesticides, herbicides, and industrial solvents.
Stage 4 = A Final Sub-Micron Post-Filter reduces any remaining sediment and organic particles down to 0.35 microns (replace every 6-12 months depending on usage).
Easy filter replacement without a plumber.
Replace the main tanks every 400,000 gallons (typical family of 4 will consume that amount in 4-6 years). You may consider adding a meter to your system at the time of installation.
If you are evaluating other whole house Chloramine water filter systems, be sure to ask if the filters have NSF 42 certification for reduction of Chloramine, not just Chlorine. Also, ask for a copy of the test report. The report will show you what percentage of the contaminant the filter removes during the expected life of the filter. Get and read the NSF test report here.
Note: It is important to check with your local water company to find out whether they use Chloramines or Free Chlorine as their primary water disinfectant. You can do this simply by searching for your town's water quality report online. The report should tell you the primary disinfectant in use in your water supply.

This system is designed to remove Chloramines from your water. If your water company uses Free Chlorine as their primary disinfectant then you do not need a Chloramine filter but can instead select the regular Austin Spring Whole House Filter which is designed to remove Free Chlorine.
A whole house filter is not a replacement for a drinking water filter - Learn why
At Pure Living Space we believe an NSF certified Whole House Water Filter is a great way to improve the overall quality and safety of the water coming into your home, but we do not believe it should be considered as a replacement for or alternative to a drinking water filter.
Why? Because whole house/POE filters are designed with high flow rates (7.0 Gallons Per Minute) so as not to diminish your water pressure or supply. And, since the water passes through the filter so quickly, it is not as effective at removing all of the potential contaminants as a dedicated drinking water filter.
So, we strongly recommend using some form of drinking water filter along with your whole house filter.
