Springwell Water has achieved overall quality beyond the topnotch capacity of their water filters and their affordable prices through excellent customer service, warranty, and inventiveness.

About Springwell Water Filters

Having been around providing quality whole-house water filters and salt-free softeners for over 20 years, Springwell Water has become a household name.

Springwell is a USA company facilitating novel solutions for the residential water filtration industry from their facility in Florida. And while they did not set out to change the face of the said industry, they have earned a reputation for being one of those that create the best products at any point in time. Of course, since they are constantly raising the bar by providing novel products, it is hard to say they are not changing the water filter system production game.

Beyond the excellence in the features of their product and the reassurance that Springwell is also NSA certified, Springwell Water has a reputation for providing some of the warmest customer services. Also, their prices are not too harsh -mostly inexpensive – and they offer a 6-month money-back guarantee. Not many brands offer a money-back guarantee period as long as that.

The Top 4 Springwell Water Filtration Reviews

Springwell CF1 Water Whole House Water Filter

CF1 Springwell Water Filter

About the Product

The Springwell CF1 Whole House Water Filter offers comprehensive whole house filtration, which results in excellent water quality. One of the highlights of this product is its 4-stage filtration process. Passing water through multiple stages of filtration offers higher assurances of purity, which is just what this product does.

How It Works

The first stage of filtration involves the removal of harmful chemicals such as chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals, PFA, PFOS, PFOA, and hydrogen sulfide. This is achieved through the Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) media. The KDF media converts the said chemicals to harmless forms through reduction and oxidation (redox) reactions.

The second stage involves the removal of organic contaminants, including odorants, dissolved minerals (which alter taste), VOCs, pesticides, herbicides, and much more. This is achieved through the coconut shell carbon media – a filtration media that acts by adsorption.

Besides filtering by adsorption, the coconut shell carbon filter media also reduces harmful contaminants like chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals, hydrogen sulfide, pesticides, detergents, and phenol to harmless forms. So, in a way, the second filtration stage of the Springwell Water Filter offers even more assurance of purity with its processes.

The third filtration stage increases contact time while doing away with channeling. While the company refers to this as a filtration stage, we believe it is more of an upside to their design. Increased contact time means that the purification processes of the filter media of the water filtration system are more thorough. Of course, if the filter media are more thorough, the chances of impurities escaping them would be insignificant.

The fourth stage of filtration removes any sediment in drinking water. So, sediments like clay, sand, rust, and dust are filtered out of the water in this stage. The sediment filtration process is facilitated by a 5-micron sediment filter, which removes any particle of a size bigger than or equal to 5 microns.

Our Review

Beyond its thorough 4-stage filtration, the Springwell Whole House Water Filter has an electronic control head that allows flexibility. The said electronic control head uses a digital meter, and you can even connect it to your smart device through Bluetooth. This way, you can monitor and control the water filtration system while you are away.

You can choose between one of two filtration tank sizes, and both options come with the installed filter media. You also get the option of including UV water purification with your package. However, this comes at an extra price.

This water filter has a capacity of 1 million gallons and features a bypass valve, ensuring that water always gets into your house. Even during maintenance, the water pressure remains unaffected.

All in all, you can expect odorless & better-tasting drinking water and meals when you use this product. This is not surprising since it offers purity levels of up to 99.6%. Those breakouts and rashes you get from the water in your home might clear off too. Contaminants like arsenic and chlorine are known to affect skin and hair health. But once they are out of the water, you should get better with time.

The Springwell Water Filter comes with a 6-month money-back guarantee and a lifetime warranty. Not many whole-house water systems in the market offer these levels of the promise of quality.

This whole house water filter system is offered in 3 models: CF1, CF4, and CF+. Each of these models differs based on the number of bathrooms they are suitable for. The Springwell CF1 is for 1-3 bathrooms, the CF4 for 4-6 bathrooms, and the CF+ for 7 bathrooms or more. Of course, the higher the number of bathrooms, the higher the price.

While this water filter is excellent without a doubt, it is not without its flaws. For one, it should be easy to install for professionals, but non-professionals may find the installation process a bit complicated. However, the company tries to make things easy by including many pre-installed parts.

Pros
  • Filtration is effected through 4 stages, which is pretty high amongst water filtration systems.
  • A filter tank that trades water channeling for contact time ensures thoroughness since the filter media will spend more time purifying the water.
  • It is relatively inexpensive.
  • The filtration rate can be as high as 99.6%.
  • You can monitor and control the control head from smart devices through Bluetooth.
  • Maintenance is infrequent since you only have to get a new 5-micron pre-filter once or twice a year.
Cons
  • Installation may not be easy for everyone.
  • This filtration system is not well-suited for well water

Springwell Water Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System

Springwell House Lead and Cyst Removal System

About the Product

Springwell Water Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System was explicitly built to filter both particulate lead and dissolved lead from water. The focus is on lead stems from the fact that lead remains one of the most toxic water contaminants in some homes.

The pipes made these days do not contain lead. But those from years back do, and they are still used in many homes. The problem with lead pipes is that over time, as the pipes are worn down, lead leaches into the water they carry. And when people consume lead in the water they drink, it accumulates and ultimately damages various organ systems.

How It Works

The Springwell Water Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System facilitates lead removal in two main ways: physical filtration for lead particles and ionic bonding for dissolved lead. This two-way approach ensures that all forms of lead are removed from the water, and a high purity level is achieved.

The lead filtration system filters out substances with sizes as low as 0.5 microns. Overall, this filtration system can remove as much as 99.95% of all lead forms from your water.

Beyond filtering lead out of the water, this system also goes after two chlorine-resistant waterborne cysts: crypto and giardia. It has a filtration efficiency of as high as 99.95% when filtering out the cysts.

Furthermore, it also removes chlorine, chloramine, and many other contaminants. And as with lead and cyst, the filtration efficiency tips up to 99.95%.

This water filter uses a digital control head like the Whole House Water Filter. With this, you never have to worry about knowing the appropriate time to get a new filter. The control head indicates the status of the filter with three color codes: green, yellow, and red.

When the control head is green, the filter is good; when it is yellow, you have about 10% of filter life left. Then the control head turns red; it is time to get a new filter.

Our Review

Unlike the Whole House Water Filter System, the Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System is easy to install, even for non-professionals. The system has an installation kit packed with various parts and tools for easy installation.

Like the Whole House Water Filteration System, this product comes with a 6-month money-back guarantee and a lifetime warranty. Plus, it is low-maintenance and has a capacity of up to 100,000 gallons.

You get the option of adding on the UV water purification and the sediment filter canister + 5-micron pre-filter. Of course, either of these add-on features comes at a price.

Overall, the Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System removes lead effectively. But beyond getting rid of lead, it also filters out giardia and crypto cysts – not many water filters for lead remove anything else apart from lead. It also removes chlorine, chloramine, and other harmful chemicals.

While the quality here is undeniable, the Whole House Lead & Cyst Removal System comes in just one size. Also, it does not filter fluoride.

Pros
  • It filters lead and cysts to a purity level of up to 99.95%.
  • This removal system offers a multi-approach to ensure that every form of lead is extracted by removing both particulate and dissolved lead from water.
  • The digital control head offers an automatic indication of the status of the filter. You get to know beforehand that you will be replacing the filter soon.
  • Maintenance is undemanding.
  • Installation is relatively easy.
Cons
  • It does not filter fluoride out of water.
  • You get only one size option.

Springwell Water FutureSoft Salt-Free Water Softener

Springwell Futuresoft salt-free Water Softener

About the Product

The Springwell Water FutureSoft works to ensure that the scales from hard water do not narrow or block your pipe. If your pipe becomes narrow, the flow rate will fall, and you will have to increase water pressure to compensate for the reduced flow rate. Also, with scales insulating the sides of your pipe, you will need more heat to get your water to the temperature you desire.

But with the FutureSoft® Salt-Free Softener keeping scales from sticking to your pipes, you will not have to spend more on pumping power and water heating power.

How It Works

A salt-free Softener is more accurately referred to as a water conditioner. Typical water softeners remove the minerals that cause hardness through ion exchange. Ion exchange involves forming soluble ions of the hardness-causing minerals. There would be no precipitation when the said minerals are transformed into soluble ions. Hence, there will be no scale formation. Some other water softeners remove the minerals that cause hardness using reverse osmosis.

Instead of ion exchange or reverse osmosis, a salt-free softener neutralizes hardness through template-assisted Crystallization (TAC). This process involves converting the hardness-causing minerals into crystals that do not stick to any surface. Of course, if the minerals do not stick surfaces, there will be no scale buildup.

You do not need a cleaning cycle to clean out trapped ions. So, it is relatively low-maintenance. Remember, this system does not trap any ions. It only makes them non-sticky.

Besides crystallizing hardness-causing minerals in your water, the Springwell Water FutureSoft® Softener can also reverse the damaging effects of scales that have already formed. So, even if you had scales in your pipe before installing the whole house water softener, there is hope.

Our Review

With the way the TAC of the FutureSoft Salt-free Softener works, it is unlikely that you will need a replacement in a short time. Since it does not trap minerals, no accumulation will wear the device out.

Beyond that, you do not need to spend on the water softener, salt, or any harsh chemical to get the scales out of your pipe. It does not release brine into the environment, and it does not wastewater.

Like the other Springwell Water products we have discussed, the FutureSoft® Salt-free Softener comes with a lifetime warranty and a 6-month money-back guarantee.

Of course, this water conditioner is not perfect. It is best suited for city water. If you ever have to use it on water from a private well, you must pre-filter and pre-treat the water to remove copper, manganese, iron, and hydrogen sulfide. Untreated water containing the said substances will damage this water conditioner.

Pros
  • This product prevents scale buildup.
  • Since template-assisted crystallization does not trap minerals, this product does not require routine cleaning.
  • You will not have to buy salt or harsh chemicals to remove scales from your pipe.
  • The system is eco-friendly; it does not waste water or release brine into the environment.
Cons
  • It is not suited for untreated private wells.

Springwell Water Filter and Salt-Free Water Softener Combo

Water Filter and Water Softener Combo

About the Product

Springwell Water created the Water Filter and Salt-Free Water Softener Combo to get the best of a whole house filter and a salt-free water conditioner in one product.

You could think of this product as a hybrid of the Springwell Water Whole House Water Filter and the Springwell Salt-free Softener.

How It Works

It uses the same 4-stage process and removes harmful contaminants and sediments, including chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals, PFOA, pesticides, herbicides, clay, sand, and much more.

Then when it comes to preventing scale formation due to water hardness, it uses template-assisted crystallization, just like the FutureSoft Softener.

Our Review

Following a close assessment of this water filter combo, we found that it offered the same pros and cons as the individual water filter and salt-free softener. Of course, like the others, it comes with a lifetime warranty and a 6-month satisfaction guarantee.

Pros
  • Filtration is effected through 4 stages, which is pretty high amongst whole house filter products.
  • Designed with a filter tank that favors contact time over water channeling, this product promotes thorough filtration since the water passes through more filtration cycles.
  • The filtration rate of the Springwell Whole House Water Filtration can be as high as 99.6%.
  • With a 5-micron pre-filter that only needs to be replaced every 6 to 9 months, this water filter & softener does not demand high maintenance levels.
  • Since it features a valve for bypassing, you never have to worry about a drop in water pressure, even during maintenance sessions.
  • Unlike the typical water softeners, this product prevents scale buildup using template-assisted crystallization.
  • Since template-assisted crystallization does not trap minerals, this product does not require routine cleaning.
  • You will not have to buy salt or harsh chemicals to remove scales from your pipe.
  • The system is eco-friendly; it does not waste water or release brine into the environment.
Cons
  • It is not suited for untreated private wells, except the pre-treated and pre-filtered water.

Springwell Whole House Filtration System Water Versus Competition

Three different Springwell water filters installations

We compare the Springwell Whole House Filter System against the Aquaox Whole House Filter System.

Ease of Installation: The Springwell Filter is easy to install, relatively more so than the Aquaox Filter.

Price: Springwell’s water filter comes at a little over half the price of Aquaox’s filter. This makes Aquaox the more expensive option.

Warranty: While Springwell offers a lifetime warranty on valves and most tanks, Aquaox offers a 10-year warranty.

Capacity: The Aquoax Filter has a capacity of up to 2 million gallons, while the Springwell Filter can take up to 1 million gallons.

Money-back Guarantee: Both brands offer a money-back guarantee on their products. But while Springwell’s guarantee period lasts for 6 months, that of Aquaox lasts for 1 year.

Shipping: Both brands of water filters offer free shipping.

Overall, the Springwell Whole House Filter is relatively easy to install compared to Aquaox’s filter. But apart from that, it is less expensive and has a longer warranty on valves and most tanks.

Final Take

If you ever need a water softener or water filter system, Springwell Water is one of the brands of water filters you should consider. This brand offers filtered water with excellent warranty periods, affordability, the best customer service, and inventiveness.
