Your water filtration system can easily be moved. However, there are a couple of things to consider before making a decision.

Things to Consider Before Moving Your Water Filtration System

Selling Point to Buyers

Before you finalize the new home price and start moving your other appliances, consider whether it’s worth it to move your current water filtration system to your new house.

Removing the water treatment equipment is not difficult, so it all comes down to personal preference. You may be inclined to move your equipment along to keep enjoying a clean drinking water supply. But bear in mind that your water system can add value to your home and can be a major selling point for potential buyers. It can cause your old home to sell quicker and for a higher price as well.

A properly installed whole house water filter unit can give the new homeowner a supply of good water in their new home.

Buyers will also inspect the fixtures in the home for indications of water damage. Seeing little or no damage will indicate that the quality is top-notch. The water treatment equipment coupled with the entire home is a bargain they can’t pass on.

Water Quality

Another thing to consider is the quality of water at your new home. You have to determine if the water quality and home size are suitable for your water equipment.

Every water treatment equipment has specific operating parameters, so you have to ensure your water unit can match the new requirements. If they don’t, there is no need to move it.

Moving Your Water Filtration System

If you’ve decided to take your water filter along with you, first consult a verified water treatment expert. They will be able to aid you with water testing in your new home to ascertain if it’s necessary to maintain usage of the water unit in the new place. If it’s verified compatible, they will also handle the disconnection and packaging for safe transportation to the new place.

You may want to move your water unit by yourself, but we recommend you seek professional help for this. Yes, you may save some bucks doing it yourself, but it will be a short-lived satisfaction if your equipment gets damaged during transportation because it was not properly packaged for the move.
