If your home gets water from a well, a sediment filter can remove contaminants before the water reaches the tap. Since water that comes from a well typically contains more contaminants than city water, a filter used with a well needs to be replaced more often. If you own a house with a well, it’s essential to know when to replace your well pump sediment filter so your family can have clean, healthy water and consistent water pressure.
How Often You Should Replace Your Well Pump Sediment Filter
You should install a new filter about every three months. Factors such as where you live, the quality of the water coming from the well, the amount of water your family uses, and the type of filter you have can influence how often you need to change the filter.
A filter that is filled with sediment can’t allow water to pass through as quickly as it should. If your water pressure is lower than it usually is, that can be a sign that your filter is clogged and needs to be replaced. You may also notice that your water has an unusual color, odor, or taste.
