The city’s main water line supply connects to a whole house water filtration system, which filters the water for domestic usage. It is one of the most effective and energy-efficient household water filtration systems available. In most cases, a whole home water filtration system connects to municipal water, filters it. It distributes it to various water outlets throughout the house. Awesome Water Filters offers different whole house water filter dimensions. Find out what are the different sizes and how their differences affect the water filtration process.

Before you buy, consider the following:

  • The 10″ by 2.5″ whole house system is ideal for townhouses or clients that consume little water. The estimated water flow rate is between 15 and 25 liters per minute.
  • Customers with low water pressure will benefit from the 20″ by 2.5″ whole house system. The approximate water flow is 20-35 liters per minute.
  • The 10″ by 4.5″ whole house system was a smart buy, especially for families with fewer than five people. The estimated water flow is between 25 and 40 liters per minute.
  • The highest value was a 20″ by 4.5″ whole house system. It provides adequate water flow even in a double-story house with low water pressure—designed for a high flow rate and a large number of users.


All water flow figures are for illustration purposes only. The real flow depends on the pressure supplied, the size of the piping, and the design of the water circuit. To avoid running out of water, go for a greater capacity. Please provide correct information about the water source, the nature of the water, the floor layout, and the number of occupants in residence. We’ll go over everything in detail and recommend the best method for you.


The best filter is a large one, as it provides more water and has a longer service interval. You should also look at the filter’s port size since it affects the number of gallons per minute and the pressure of the water that enters your home. The recommended size of a whole house filter for an ordinary home is 4.5′′x 20′′. Larger families, on the other hand, may require filters with a flow rate of 25 GPM and a 1 1/2-inch port.
