Whirlpool WHELJ1 Central Water Filtration System Reviewed
If you like the thought of having clean water in your house but the cost and nuisance of constantly changing filters is just too much, then the Whirlpool WHELJ1 Central Water Filtration System is going to be like a breath of fresh air for you.
Clean water. No filter changing. Ever.
Thanks to some backflushing technology (FilterSense® Technology) where the system flushes and cleans itself every 14 days (depending on what you set it to), there’s no longer any need to change filters.
Many of those who have purchased a WHELJ1 talk about how much they love the ‘set it and forget it’ style.
Or was it the fact that once it’s installed, they get access to an unlimited supply of clean, great-tasting water?
Whatever the case may be, it’s a sure thing that not having to change any filters and having great water is an absolute draw-card.
Walk with me through the features and benefits that this system has to offer:
Features You’ll Value
Efficient Whole House Filtration
Whole-house filtration is pretty much a crucial part of our lives these days with water quality that is supplied to our homes getting worse and worse.
I’ve learned that contaminants can be absorbed through our skin and/or inhaled into our lungs, so you can see now why a central water filtration system is important.
With the personal health benefits also comes the additional benefits of protecting your appliances and keeping your sanitary fixtures cleaner.
No need for an additional faucet
If you wanted to add a third faucet to your kitchen sink, for example, you could. However, this filtration system is enough to remove that Chlorinated smell and make your water taste great!
If you were to add another filter and faucet in your kitchen, your filters would last a very long time thanks to the pre-filtration of the water through the WHELJ1.
But, there’s really no need as this filtration system cleans, purifies, and removes the foul taste of chlorine from your water.
Easy installation at point of entry
The whole kit comes with everything you need to hook up to 1” NPT plumbing, including the installation guide and a bypass valve.
The bypass valve will maintain optimal water pressure throughout the house
With just an in and an out on the filter itself and you’re away. You also have the option of adding a water softening filter after the Whirlpool WHELJ1 Central Water Filtration System to aid with the removal of minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, and Iron, which leaves not only your silverware cleaner and shinier, but also your glassware, mirrors, tiles, cars, or any plumbing fixtures.
No filters to replace – Ever
Using FilterSense® Technology, the Whirlpool WHELJ1 automatically flushes, cleans and drains its internal filter for a continuous supply of filtered water.
This is a way of maintaining the unit without you needing to lift a finger.
This maintenance-free system automatically cleans itself every 14 days and can also be programmed to clean itself more or less frequently depending on your needs and the water conditions where you are.
Reduces sediment, Chlorine taste and odor
The Whirlpool WHELJ1 will remove 99% or more of sediment with 40-50 microns particle size.
Get healthy, contaminant-free water with this system.
These are NSF certified to reduce water contaminants as small as 40 microns. In comparison, that’s about half the diameter of a strand of human hair.
High-flow that maintains household water pressure
Allowing the flow of up to 6 gallons per minute, this won’t excessively slow your household’s water supply down.
It’ll run on pressure from 30-125 psi. There will always be some drop in pressure, even if it’s only minimal. That is something that Whirlpool has attempted to tackle this one by allowing as much flow as possible through this filtration system.
So, make sure you use the larger diameter pipe when hooking it up and you’re good to go.
What Consumers Say
Word of mouth is one of the best ways to find out the truth about a product. When someone has paid good money for something they’re more likely to be brutally honest about whether or not they really like it.
These comments are from the owners of a Whirlpool WHELJ1 Central Water Filtration System:
- This item really works and very easy to install the best whole house water filter
- I’m a plumber who has installed this product 6 times over the last couple of years and my customers and always been very happy.
- All our faucets are clean and clear, our appliances and glassware too. Soap lathers easily and the water tastes delicious. We no longer buy bottled water at all
- I was reluctant to put out the money when you start comparing other options it was by far the smartest thing I have done for my house hands down
- Our contractor recommended the unit and said he’d installed a number of them with great success. So far, we are very pleased.
- I have owned this filter for the last 4 years. not ONCE have I had to change a filter!!!
- This is a great filtration system. We have had it in for two years.
- We installed one of these in our new home nearly 11 years ago. It has been flawless, “install and forget it” process.
- It was a small problem getting it into a space in MY basement had to make some piping rearrangements from copper to plastic piping, when it was done WOW
- This thing works. Kind of tricky to install yourself if you are not good with plumbing, but I did it.
- The Central Water Filtration System may not be an effective treatment method for water sources with a hydrogen sulfide problem
The problem with most water filtration systems is their need for attention.
It’s like they’re crying out, “Here! Here! Come and look at me and change my filters every few months!”
Thankfully, not with this one.
No filters to change, ever. For the lifetime of the system!
That’s a bold claim.
But, the Whirlpool WHELJ1 Central Water Filtration System utilizes its FilterSense® Technology to automatically flush and clean its filter every 14 days.
The people who have purchased them and had them for years stand by them and are fiercely loyal.
It has earnt its certification from The National Sanitation Federation (NSF) who determined the standard for products that are made to produce better home water.
It weighs 8 ounces and takes up 10.1 x 13.4 x 33.8 inches of space wherever you decide to mount it.
Comments like, “This filter has changed everything. NO taste of Chlorine, NO more discoloration, and NO more calcification! Skin is much softer after a shower now and has knocked out all sediment”, gives away just a taste of how good this filter can be.
Ultimately, the decision you have before you is, do you want your appliances to last longer, your dishes and glasses to be cleaner, your bath to have less staining, your clothes to smell better when they’re washed, your water to taste better?
Or, you could just put up with it all the way it already is?
