Clean Water for Life


Water Filtration & Treatment

Woodstock Hardware stocks a wide variety of water filters, replacement filters, and water-softening salt to help meet these growing needs.

Water purification systems, such as water filters and water softeners, are becoming an increasingly common feature in our homes. Here at Woodstock Hardware we find our customers are educating themselves on the quality of the water used in their home and how best to improve the quality of the water their families use on a daily basis.

Woodstock Hardware's Clean Water For Life Program was designed to help meet our customer's water treatment and filtration needs. This program consists of four parts:

As the demand for cleaner water grows, Woodstock Hardware is often asked about the different styles of water filters available for use in the home or office. There are several styles of water treatment devices available on the market today. The most common styles are listed below, along with a brief description of each.

Point-of-Entry (POE) System
These systems typically treat most of the water entering a residence. Point-of-entry systems, or whole-house systems, are usually installed after the water meter or pnuematic tank.

Point-of-Use (POU) System
These systems typically treat water in batches and deliver water to a single tap, such as a kitchen sink faucet or an auxiliary faucet mounted next to the kitchen sink. The following information contains a brief explanation of different POU systems and points to consider when determining which style of a system will best suit your needs.

The list is ordered from easiest installation/operation to more difficult or complex installation/operation and should not be construed as any type of recommendation.

Personal Water Bottle
This type of product consists of a bottle and a filter. The filter may be integrated with the push/pull cap of the filter bottle or may be integrated with a straw.

Pour Through
In pour-through products, gravity causes water to drip through a pitcher, which is usually stored in the refrigerator.

Faucet Mount
This type of filter is mounted on an existing kitchen sink faucet (usually replacing the aerator or installed immediately before the aerator). A diverter is usually used to direct water through the system when treated drinking water is desired

Countertop; Manual Fill
This system is usually placed
on a counter and filled by pouring water into the system and activating it for a batch of water.

Countertop; Connected to Sink Faucet
This product is usually placed on a counter and connected by tubing to an existing kitchen sink faucet. The treated water dispenses out of a return tube from the kitchen faucet, or the treated water is dispensed from a spout on the system.

This type of system is usually installed under the sink and requires a permanent connection to an existing water pipe. The filter water is dispensed through the existing sink faucet.
