The iSpring WGB32B 3-Stage Whole House Water Filtration System with 20” x 4.5” Big Blue Fine Sediment and Carbon Block Filters is the ideal “point of entry” system to protect your home or business from whatever it is you may find in the municipal water supply.
This is different from a “point of use” filtration system in that it is connected before anything else in the house and provides protection to everything after it. A “point of use” filter will only provide you with filtered water at that point, whether it’s a drinking faucet, ice-maker, or the like.
Not really suited for well water, this is for the city supply and works extremely efficiently at removing Chlorine taste and smell.
It’s not a reverse osmosis system that removes everything, including the good minerals, from your water. The iSpring WGB32B 3-Stage filters remove the contaminants in your water but retain the healthy minerals in it. This is because it does not reduce the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS).
This is the perfect system for those looking for whole-house protection from the nasty contaminants that we’ll have a look at shortly, and who want great-tasting water at a fraction of the cost of buying bottled water.
Let’s have a look at some of the things you’ll love about it.
Features You’ll Value
Whole house (point of entry) water filters can be a great money-saving idea!
As mentioned, you’re protecting everything in your house, not just making your water taste better. Having a filter on your entire house means that your dishwasher, faucets, washing machine, water heater, showerheads, toilets, and the like will all last a lot longer due to the fact of the better water quality going into them!
These three filters can be utilized as a part of an overall system or simply stand-alone and do all the heavy lifting of clearing out the sediment, particles, and contaminants.
Should you choose to install another filter in your house, like a water purifier with a chrome faucet, or ice-maker, etc. then you’re going to find that the filters on those systems will last a lot longer than they normally would as well.
All of this goes towards saving you money on maintenance, water bottles, and much more by removing up to 95% of contaminants.
If you’re like me and tend to like things that look and feel solid, you’ll be happy with the reinforced construction of the iSpring WGB32B.
Weighing in at 45 pounds and taking up 8 x 28 x 21 inches.
The carbon block filters that iSpring are using for their second and third stage filtration are tested and certified by an independent third-party to meet NSF/ANSI Standards: 42, 53 for drinking water treatment units, 2018.

Three-stage filtration system
For a three-stage system, the iSpring WGB32B 3-Stage filter is extremely effective at removing up to 99% of Chlorine and 95% of sediment, industrial solvents, rust, herbicides, pesticides, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), and other contaminants.
Stage 1 is for larger particles like sand, dirt, and rust.
Stage 2 and 3 are both 5-micron CTO coconut shell carbon block filters. These work together to take out all those nasties mentioned above as well as knocking out the bad tastes and odors.
Extended lifetime and 100,000-gallon capacity
The 1” input and output ports on the filter assembly can handle up to 0.25 gallons per second with a peak flow rate of 15 gallons per minute.
The system has the capacity to produce enough water for a family of four for an entire year before changing the filters is required after 100,000 gallons. This, of course, can be dependent on the water quality going into the filters, but generally, 100,000 gallons is the mark.
Do-it-yourself installation for those who are handy
This is one for the handy people out there. There are YouTube videos available to assist with the installation.
The kit comes with two 1 inch MNPT to ¾ inch push-fit connectors for the input and output ports.
These are designed to be installed outdoors in the mainline and the what you’ll receive in the kit are the filters in their housings, fitted on a steel bracket and the tool to change the filters. They are connected so to install them you only need to concern yourself with the inlet and outlet of the water supply.
