Anyone that enjoys clean filtered water and cares about our environment
while saving money. Sounds hokey but it's true. HtruO makes sense on many levels.
Instead of only enjoying filtered water at one location in your home,
enjoy filtered water everywhere in your home.
Instead of contributing to the plastic disaster of bottled water,
not to mention the carbon emissions of the delivery trucks, install
HtruO and enjoy clean water from every fixture in your home. Take HtruO with you with a stainless steel water bottle like the HtruO 2 GO.
Instead of paying over $560 a year just for drinking water,
enjoy filtered water throughout your home for 18 cents a day.
While HtruO is primarily meant to filter municipal water but you can use it on a private well system.
HtruO's effectiveness would come down to the chemistry of the water coming from your well.
You should have a water sample taken. If your water is relatively soft with minimum to no iron,
HtruO would work very well for you. If you have water conditioning in place already,
HtruO is a great way to fine tune your well water.
HtruO filters out many contaminants and particles down to 5 microns.
Without getting to technical, HtruO filters dirt and sediment and removes
chlorine and chlorination by-products. HtruO filters municipal water and provides
bottled quality water to your entire home.
Municipal water comes from one of two places, a reservoir or a common well supply.
Either way the water supplied to you home originates with dirt and particles and
then picks up more as it passes through the distribution pipes.
Water Main Break!
*Think of when a water main breaks… Ever experience brownish water? HtruO guards your home and family against the unpleasantness caused by water main breaks.
Chlorine is a necessary evil in the municipal water world.
Before water can be sent to your home it must be disinfected.
The most common way to disinfect a water supply is through chlorination.
However, we believe that chlorine is the number one reason the bottled water
industry became the behemoth it is today. Consumers were not satisfied with
the water they received from their tap. Chlorine makes water smell and taste horrible,
it dries your skin and hair, and poses potential health risks brought about from
chlorination by-products. When water was marketed as tasting better with no odor
and even healthier, the consumer market bit and bit hard. Now we are dealing with the
environmental disaster created by that behemoth. HtruO removes chlorine and chlorination by-products.
Flushing of the Lines Alert!
*Surely you have noticed when the chlorine smell and taste is stronger than usual.
Frequently your municipal water provider has to flush the lines and this means a temporary increase in chlorine.
HtruO guards your home and family against elevated chlorine levels.
A standard install should take less than an hour and
require very few extra parts than what is provided.
This is determined by where the water main enters your home.
An easily accessible line in a basement or utility room would be standard.
A crawl-space would not be standard. If the plumbing is in good shape and there is room to work,
this would be standard. If the plumbing is old and decaying, this would be non-standard.
You will discuss any extra charges with the plumber prior to install.
If there will be any extra charges you will pay those extra charges directly to the plumber.
The $200 install allowance covers the first hour of labor and $50.00 in extra materials.
This will be extremely rare but will happen.
If you find yourself in this position please call 1-888-587-HTRUO (4878).
We will talk about alternatives and if we can come up with no solution,
again extremely rare, we will refund your credit card once you ship your HtruO back to us.
All we ask is that you pay the return shipping.
The answer here is anytime you feel like it.
Though you probably will only have to change your filters every 160,000
gallons which turns out to be about twice a year.
Look into our Evergreen Replacement Cartridge program to make this simpler.
HtruO utilizes clear housings to allow you to appreciate the filtering process.
If you feel your #1 filter is looking a little too dirty replace it.
We do recommend you replace both your filters at the same time.
You can easily purchase replacement filters here.
During your check out process do not opt-out of our Evergreen
Replacement Cartridge Program. This program takes the thinking and effort out of
obtaining new replacement cartridges. Every six months your credit card on file
will be charged $33.00 plus shipping based on your zip code and your replacement cartridges
will show up on your doorstep.

It is very important to place your #1 filter cartridge (pleated) first in line.
This filter removes the dirt and particles and lengthens the life of your #2 filter cartridge (solid).
Think of where the line enters your home and place #1 closest to the wall/water meter.
Most times this is due to a missing or miss-aligned rubber o-ring.
Sometimes when you dump your filter and sump the rubber o-ring fall off.
Check the bucket or wherever you dumped your filter.
Usually you will find the o-ring.
Simply place it back on the sump and re-screw the sump back up into the head.
Other times you may have the cartridge upside down or not seated correctly in the sump.
If your unit still leaks contact your plumber.
