The drinking water’s level of purity is very important for a healthy body and sometimes the water running through the pipes in your house is not as clean as you think it is, therefore, installing a whole house water filter can significantly improve the quality of the water you and your family consume. The Aqua Pure SS8 EPE-316L is an efficient and easy to use whole house filter that provides water free of chlorine and sediments for each water source in your house.
The SS8 EPE has a high flow design and an electropolish exterior finish that is resistant to corrosion and is designed for both hot and cold water. The seat plates fit solidly into the cartridge core in order to ensure a strong seal, and the specially designed cartridge seal plates fit equivalent length cartridges. The electropolish exterior finish gives the filter a mirror-like finish and the highest level of resistance to corrosion while the V-band clamp is great for quick and easy opening and closing when you want to remove the cartridges.
The whole house filter is made of electropolished 316L stainless steel that is commonly used for high purity processes and food grade environments and helps you provide longer lasting protection against highly corrosive environments. The filter reduces sand, rust, chlorine taste and odor, and scale.

The filter is made of a heavy-duty 316L low carbon stainless steel head and housing that is resistant to both hot and cold water applications. The high-temperature capacity reaches up to 250 degrees F or 121 degrees C, depending on which type of filter cartridge you select. The water filter consists of an air vent which allows venting before start-up or draining. The filter provides up to 1,5 GPM flow rate, which is ideal for almost all residential and light commercial applications. It provides clean and fresh water for every water source in your house and eliminates rust, sediments, scale, and chlorine.
