No other full house water filter system is more affordable and effective at removing contaminants than the PurHome Series from PuriTeam.X-5 X-51 Cutaway.png

The PurHome X-51 whole house filter utilizes the same combination of Catalytic Centaur Carbon and KDF55 as the X-5 but has 1" plumbing and a "Big Flow" 0.35 micron pre-filter that is twice as thick. This full house water filter system removes chlorine over 99% and filters heavy metals including lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium and other dissolved metals and extends the life of the carbon stage while providing a bacteriostatic environment. 

This whole house filter is easy to install.  Watch a brief video installation on the videos tab.

The catalytic carbon reduces chloramines, VOC (chemical) contaminants and odors. It includes a wall mounting bracket for the sediment pre-filter.  It is rated at 10 gallons per minute (gpm) flow rate with peak up to 12 gpm.  Filter media in the main tank should be replaced every 5 years.  Designed for municipally treated water, but may be used on well water if water is microbiologically safe or in conjunction with a UV light system.

Chloramines in your Water? Most municipalities treat water with chlorine, but some cities are now beginning to use chloramines as a disinfectant.  It is a combination of chlorine with ammonia.  The effects of chloramines have not been widely studied yet, but it is considered no less dangerous than chlorine to your health. We now include chloramine removal media at no extra charge.

A: KDF55 is an electrostatic media specifically designed to remove chlorine and heavy metals. Using KDF55 with carbon eliminates the need for backwashing saving water and electricity. KDF55 is an NSF (National Science Foundation) certified water filtration media that is used in Hospitals, Restaurants, Municipal Water Treatment Facilities, and Homes across the United States.

Q: Will the PurHome X-51 remove Fluoride?

A: No, the PurHome X-51 is not designed to remove Fluoride; however the KDF55 media used in this system has shown a reduction of about 60% but that is not high enough to make removal claims. To completely remove the Fluoride we recommend a nano type of filtration. Fluoride is not harmful when bathing and therefore removing it from the drinking water only is the most popular method of treatment. For “super purified” water removing virtually every organic and inorganic contaminant including the Fluoride, we recommend our Hydrotech Push Button monitoring reverse osmosis system under your kitchen sink. This is commonly paired when using a whole house specialized treatment system. We use a high quality one-piece manifold system and it comes with a water quality monitor.

Replaced 13 year Old system

Michael L Alster on 15th Mar 2018

This unit replaced a similar unit I have had for almost 15 years. The larger pre filter really helps maintain the water pressure throughout the house. The tank is slightly larger than the old unit so we did have to redo the connection to our water main. Works wonderfully and highly recommend.
