Commonly Asked Questions About Everpure H1200
It is truly a remarkable modern convenience that we in the United States have running water in our homes and offices. It’s a luxury that we mustn’t forget that others in the world lack. However, even though we do have running water, that does not by any means equate to clean and drinkable running water.
For those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have clean drinking water that flows from our tap, we require extra assistance to make sure that we have healthy and unharmful water in our homes. Not only do we need clean water for drinking, but even for those everyday activities, like brushing our teeth, washing our dishes, and bathing ourselves.
That’s where we come in at Efilters. We happily supply those who need clean water in their homes and institutions with some of the top-rated, high-quality water filtration systems. We are proud of our products that best help those have water in their homes and offices that they can rely on for cleanliness and quality.
The brand that we rely on the most is Everpure, as it is one of the best water filtration systems on the market today. One of their best products is the Everpure H1200. Our customers ask us several questions about this particular system, so we have compiled a list of these questions and our answers.
Q: What does it filter out?
A: One of the most important questions to ask is about what it actually filters because, after all, that is the function it is supplying you! Here are all of the items the Everpure H1200 can greatly reduce the presence of:
- Particulates, such as manganese, sulfides, and oxidized iron
- Chlorine (taste and odor)
- Mold, algae, cloudiness, and dirt
- Methyl Tertiarybutyl Ether
- Volatile organic chemicals
- Cysts, such as Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia
Q: Is it certified?
A: If you are worried about the authenticity of this water filtration system, that is completely understandable. Rest assured, however, it has been certified by the NSF, the National Sanitation Foundation.
This foundation is a third party that tests and certifies water filtration systems to ensure that they do indeed function the way the manufacturer claims. The Everpure H1200 was tested and certified by the NSF for Standards 42 and 53.
Of these two standards, the latter of the two is of the most importance. This is because Standard 53 certifies that the system successfully removes parasitic cysts, like lead and Cryptosporidium.
This is because of the disastrous effects these two cysts can cause. Lead consumption can lead to irreversible brain damage while drinking Cryptosporidium can cause dehydration, weight loss, and a host of other issues in the human body. In high quantities of either, disastrous consequences can occur and potentially even lead to death.
Those are some pretty nasty contaminants you wouldn’t want in your drinking water, wouldn’t you say?
Q: How much does the system cost?
A: When it comes to water filtration systems, you cannot expect them to be exceptionally cheap. If it is, that means that it is more than likely of poor quality.
The Everpure brand is fortunate enough to meet both standards that customers want: lower prices for higher quality. This particular system is $428 with us at Efilters, a reasonable price for such a highly functioning device!
However, you will need to eventually purchase replacement filters as well. We have our Everpure H1200 replacement cartridges, which are priced at $124.75. However, this set comes with two cartridges! Well worth that price.
Q: What are the specs?
A: Another common question we get is about the specifications of this particular filtration system. You already know what it filters and its standards, but now let’s look at other important aspects of this system:
- ½ gallon per minute flow rate
- 1,000 gallon capacity
- .50 microns rating
For a more detailed compilation of the specs for this system, you can check out our spec sheet.
Q: How often do I need to change the filter?
A: You will need to change your filter cartridge every 12 months typically. However, you should also keep an eye out for other signs that it’s time to change your cartridge, as every person and their usage amount is different.
You can look for off-tasting water or ice and a low flow rate. Conveniently, every system and cartridge has a time strip filter monitor that will remind you at the 11-month mark to purchase a replacement cartridge.
Q: Is it difficult to install?
A: Not at all! Everpure is one of the easiest water filtration systems to install. Here is our step-by-step guide to installing the H1200.
We hope that this list of commonly asked questions and their appropriate answers helped. If you have any other questions about the Everpure H1200 or about any of our other offerings, feel free to give us a call at 1-866-283-9919.
