Hi,
Why have whole house water filters. You only need a filter on the kitchen supply. Bathrooms and toilets do not need a filter IMO. Just put a filter on the supply that you use for Drinking. Cheaper in the long run. Can be bought in any supermarket for a few thousand B. Changing the chemicals and filters will be a lot cheaper to.

Phayakk12, you could have a look at this thread, if it's of any help:

http://www.udonmap.com/udonthaniforum/d ... 17733.html

The water where we live is clean and treated by the local authority/water company, (supposedly to a drinking standard), so I see no problem in using it throughout the house, - e.g. to shower and for hand basins or even to rinse mouths after brushing teeth. In my case I wanted to be extra sure of the water that we actually drink, and was having problems with the large 10 baht bottles delivered locally, so I purchased a filter unit, which was installed under the kitchen sink, and which thus provided additional filtering directed to one separate narrow bore tap next to the kitchen sink.

I would agree that I see no need to filter all the water to the house, unless perhaps you have particular problems locally, or certainly not to such a high standard.

The type of filter that I purchased can be obtained from the small shops in the larger shopping malls like Tesco, Big C etc and probably also from the larger DIY stores like Home Pro, Home Mart, Global House etc.

Alternatively, there are the much larger (about 1.75m high), sand, gravel or charcoal (?) filled filter systems which are fitted into the mains supply line outside. They cost about 10K - 15K baht and need back flushing every couple of weeks. Again any of the larger DIY stores should have these, or a decent local plumber or equivalent.

Also if you have water as slime as what I get, toilet tanks fill with it, faucets clog, shower tiles gets a brown slime colored film. Don't think I would be drinking it even with a filter.

Don't know what's in your area, but Global House has 3 or 4 options for whole house filters with a way that you back flush the filtering, which would work best with pressure, say from your pump if you have one. With those filter carts, with my water, last a couple of days at 400 baht a hit. If you were to be drinking it and its like my city water, think you would need a couple of filter systems.

Thanks guys for the input. Kopkei I plan on doing the same as you just was looking for a place close by to get the large filters. Like most of you said under counter ones easy to come by. Thanks Tim

Clean water they understand.
It's the term shower that sends them off scratching their heads. :?

I used to work for a utility company that treated water up to "drinkable" standards, however, there are only a certain number of things they are required to test for. I'm confident that all regulated utility companies abide by these rules and standards, but I still filter my water at home. I think it is just safer in the long run. I would pose a challenge that if you are really concerned, have your water tested by an independent agency. That will give you the direction you need with your purifying needs.

Hello Phayakk,

I also agree with douglas. why you need the whole house water filter? Because many people are set up the water filter in kitchen, bathrooms etc...Thanks...

As you're heading toward the airport, on the Ring road, with Tesco and Bic C on you're left, a few hundred meters before you turn right to the airport, there's a filter store on your left hand side.

It depends how dirty the water is coming out of the well.i use a two stage 16inch filter which takes it to a decent level to use in house.if you go too far in stages you'll only clog it up with dirt very quickly.i paid 6,000b but look on lazada and might find cheaper.

We had salesmen at the land last week who install a filter beside the water tank so all water to the house is drinkable. The cost they quoted was around 24000 but offered to fit the system free for a 2-4 week trial period. The misses tells me they are on the ring road not far from Homepro
