How to choose the best water filter for my home

Bacfree smart water filters, first in Malaysia

Bacfree outdoor water filters are your best choice if you’re looking to get clean, filtered water at your home from every tap, for your household pets, personal hygiene and baths, food and beverages, kitchen uses, or outdoor uses.

Selecting the most suitable outdoor filter for your home depends on your preference, really.

The first and most important factor to look at is the quality of water filtration.

The theory is simple, the higher the filter vessel volume in a water filter, the cleaner the water, because there is more space for the filtration process to take place in the tank.

So going from the lowest to the highest volume,

Filter Model Vessel Volume Water Quality
ER19M 48 Litres <5 NTU
Luna Pro 51 Litres <5 NTU
ER19SM 66 Litres <3 NTU
ER28M 130 Litres <1 NTU

*What is NTU? NTU is the measure of turbidity in the water, which is how clear the water is. The smaller the NTU value, the cleaner the water.

Naturally, the bigger the filter vessel volume, the better the performance of the filtration process, too.

Of course, this also depends on several other factors, like:

how much water you use (more water usage = more volume needed),

the size of your home (the ER28M is the recommended size for a bungalow),

and the water quality of your area’s municipal treated water source (housing area with poor quality water source require higher filtration performance).

ER19M – Basic unit, maximum performance

The ER19M, part of Bacfree’s ER-series outdoor water filters, is suitable for single-storey intermediate houses.

The ER19SM, part of Bacfree’s ER-series outdoor water filters, is suitable for double-storey intermediate houses and Semi-Ds.

ER-Series outdoor water filters come with comprehensive warranty packages for your peace of mind.

The stainless-steel housing of the water comes with a warranty of 10 years.

The filtration media, which is due to be changed after 5 years, has 5 years warranty itself for the first 5 years.

And finally, the water quality is also guaranteed with 5 years warranty of water turbidity and colour.

Water filter maintenance: How to clean and maintain my outdoor water filter

The filters for ER-Series are easy to maintain.

Depending on usage and water condition, just backwash once a week.

The valves on the water filter are labelled 1, 2, and 3 so that you can refer to them easily.

To do a backwash,

Step 1: Close Valve 2
Step 2: Close Valve 1
Step 3: Open Valve 3
Step 4: Flush out the accumulated sediments and rust until it is clear
Step 5: Close Valve 3
Step 6: Open Valve 1

Frequently asked questions about ER-Series outdoor water filter

Q: What is CEL Valve Control Technology?

It is an integrated flow control system providing a simple yet durable means to control filtration and filter reconditioning processes compared to conventional valve systems.

Q: Why choose Stainless Steel over Fibreglass?

Food grade stainless steel is safe, durable, ultraviolet proof and won’t degrade under extreme weather compared to fibreglass filter casing.

Q: Why use Activated Carbon to partially remove chlorine?

Excessive chlorine level can cause pipe corrosion, risks of cancer, unpleasant odour and taste.

Bacfree’s proprietary granular activated carbon layering technology is capable of reducing up to 80% of excessive chlorine and chemicals in the water supply.

Q: What is Turbidity / NTU?

Turbidity is a measure of water clarity.

The amount of materials suspended in water decrease the passage of light through the water.

Suspended materials include soil, particles (clay, silt and sand), algae, plankton, microbes and others.

Q: Why are ER-Series Outdoor Water Filters so big and bulky?

The ER-Series Outdoor Water Filter is specially designed with a specific height and width so that the flow of water has sufficient contact time with the filtration media layers to get the best absorption and filtration of the water.

Q: Why is the ER-Series water filtration process more complicated compared to other brands?

The ER-Series water filter uses a patented CEL-Valve for the best reliability and durability for industrial usage, hence the process may be different from other products from other brands.

What’s the biggest difference between Bacfree’s ER-Series Outdoor Water Filter and that of other brands?

The ER-Series water filter uses food grade 304 high grade stainless steel – whereas most of the other brands in the market use fiberglass filtration tanks.

Q: What’s so special about the 6-layer multi-media filtration?

The ER-Series’ outdoor water filter media consists of activated carbon, anthracite, quartz sand, and quartz stone, able to filter the water down to 5 microns.

Q: How often do I need to do maintenance of the water filter?

The activated carbon layer is recommended to be changed every 5 years, whereas the anthracite, quartz sand, and quartz stone can be changed every 10 years. It is also advised to do a backwash of the water filter system once a week to keep the water quality at top condition.

Q: What are some of the parts that may undergo wear and tear?

While the stainless-steel casing for the outdoor water filter is designed to last a lifetime, the rubber gasket of the filter should be changed after 5 years to prevent leakages.

This is because the rubber is exposed under the sun all the time.

Q: How do I select the right outdoor water filter for my home?

Selecting the most suitable outdoor filter for your home depends on your preference, really.

The first and most important factor to look at is the quality of water filtration.

The theory is simple, the higher the filter vessel volume in a water filter, the cleaner the water, because there is more space for the filtration process to take place in the tank.

So going from the lowest to the highest volume,

Filter Model Vessel Volume Water Quality
ER19M 48 Litres <5 NTU
Luna Pro 51 Litres <5 NTU
ER19SM 66 Litres <3 NTU
ER28M 130 Litres <1 NTU

*What is NTU? NTU is the measure of turbidity in the water, which is how clear the water is. The smaller the NTU value, the cleaner the water.

Naturally, the bigger the filter vessel volume, the better the performance of the filtration process, too.

Of course, this also depends on several other factors, like:

how much water you use (more water usage = more volume needed),

the size of your home (the ER28M is the recommended size for a bungalow),

and the water quality of your area’s municipal treated water source (housing area with poor quality water source require higher filtration performance).

Q: Is the water from the ER-Series outdoor water filter drinkable?

The ER-Series outdoor filter filters up to 5 microns, and cannot fully remove sediments, heavy metals, chlorine and bacteria.

Thus, we’d recommend you to have a point-of-use water filter like an indoor tap filter to further filter the water down to 0.2 microns for direct-drinking water.

Q: Will the water pressure be affected?

The water pressure will not be affected.

Q: How long does it take to do a backwash for the outdoor filter?

The backwash usually takes about 5 minutes. It is recommended that during the process, you monitor the water until it is clear.

Q: Can I choose a bigger outdoor filter than the recommended size for my home?

Yes, you can opt to upgrade – but not downgrade.

If the water consumption in a household is high, you should not go for a smaller filter size because it will get dirty very fast and the water pressure may get affected if the household consumption rate is high.
