[VIDEO] Whole House Water Filter Comparison - Triple Big Blue Vs. 3M Vs. Gold Carb

This article serves as another helpful Whole House Water Filter systems comparison.

Today we’ll do a basic comparison between the Triple Big Blue Whole House Water Filter, the 3M Aqua Pure Whole House Water Filter and the Gold Carb Whole House Water Filter.

Before we jump into the characteristics of each system, each of these products delivers a great end result. They all stop the chlorine coming into your house, get rid of the horrible chlorine gas smell when you're having a shower or using hot water in the kitchen sink and filter all the nasties out of your water.

That’s what we want to do, make the water much nicer throughout your whole home.

But below, we have a look a little closer at each option.

Triple Big Blue Whole House Water Filter

The My Water Filter Triple Big Blue Whole House Water Filter is the most popular system by far.

These cartridges are easily replaced with the old style cartridge removal tool. Simply pull out your old cartridges every 12 months, insert the new one, and off you go again for another year.

The Triple Blue stops chlorine and its by-products, removes heavy metals and pesticides and blocks bugs, bacteria and viruses.

3M Aqua Pure Whole House Water Filter

One of the biggest drawcards for a system such as the 3M Aqua-Pure Whole House Water Filter is the quick change cartridge feature.

The Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) design allows for fast and easy cartridge replacements without the need for any tools.

You can get the sediment cartridge with a 3M, and you can also get the carbon and even the carbon with scale assistance. If you put a sediment cartridge in front of a 3M carbon that's what we recommend because there's a lot of sediment in our water nowadays and we just don't want to have all that sediment blocking up the carbon cartridge.

If you have limescale there is a filtron model cartridge from 3M you can use, or you can use a Limetron Whole House Hard Water Conditioner in conjunction with your 3M.

In fact, a Limetron can be used in conjunction with any Whole House Filter.

No matter what filter you are using, you can attach a Limetron, Grander Whole House unit, home edgers and any other water conditioner onto it.

Gold Carb Whole House Water Filter

The Gold Carb Whole House Water Filter is specifically designed for treated chlorinated water in towns and cities. The best part of the Gold Carb, is the available capacity.

If you have a large family you might like to have a look at the Gold Carb, as it has the most media in it, out of all the systems mentioned on this page.

The Gold Carb Whole House cartridge has 40kgs of carbon inside, thats 10x more carbon than the My Water Filter Whole House system. It’s more expensive, but if you have a large family, it’s likely the best option you have.

While the sediment cartridge needs to be replaced every 12 months, the Goldcarb carbon cartridge will last you 5 years or more.

Which Is Best?

When it comes down to choosing the right system for your house, it's really about the size of your family and what sort of filter you think you're looking for, that’s what separates each option here.

SIZE! Yes, it matters.

How big is your family?

If you're just a single person or couple, you might like to consider a 3M. If you’ve got a family, we recommend at least a Gold Carb or Triple Blue.

The absolute best? You can’t go past the My Water Filter 20” Triple Big Blue Whole House Water Filter with Aragon. Check it out and contact us if you have any questions.
