Culligan is a well-known brand with a good reputation for manufacturing quality water purification systems. Their Culligan WH-HD200-C whole house water filtration system does not disappoint either.
It’s really well built and extremely versatile in its usage.
One of the main things to like about it is its versatile design that makes it highly effective in getting rid of sediments and other contaminants.
It supports up to five different Culligan’s filter cartridges which allow you to eliminate all types of sediments available in the water.
The unit default CP5-BBS filter is 5 microns in size and is quite efficient on its own. It effectively removes the sediments present in the water from dirt to course sand to regular sand too much finer sediments like fine sand and silt.
Aside from the sediments, the Culligan serves as a softener. It clears scale and other salt residues that settle in the water. This means no clogged or blocked internal pipes.
The unit is even compatible with the Culligan’s granular activated carbon cartridge. Therefore, it’s not just sediments and contaminants. You can as well get rid of chlorine and odor from the water.
Another cool thing about this unit is that you don’t have to turn off the water supply in the whole house to replace the filter. The built-in bypass makes this easy. All it takes is putting the valve in bypass position, then you push the pressure relief button and open the housing. It makes maintaining the unit much easier.
The setup operates on battery which is a big plus as it means it will continue to function properly even when there is no electricity.
Most models depend on electricity, so to have rechargeable batteries is a great advantage. You will have a continuous supply of pure water during power cuts and you can even use it areas where electricity isn’t available.
For your convenience, there’s a built-in timer within its setup to let you know how much power is remaining. So, no unwanted surprises plus the unit also has a filter life indicator to keep you aware of the state of the cartridge.
It makes timely replacements much easier.
The CP5-BBS filter has a capacity of 20,000 gallon which isn’t huge but is decent enough.
The setup consists of larger inlet and outlet connectors. The ports are 1-inch thick hence it will deliver plenty of water flow as is often required in larger homes.
With the help of the connectors and some DIY skills, assembling this system won’t give you any trouble. It’s pretty easy, you won’t need a plumber.
The only setback is that the bypass valve might be a little hard to turn and you easily shred the seal should you use a housing wrench for leverage.
