🚦 Performance

The Kind Water E-1000 Whole House Water Filter ticks a lot of boxes when it comes to performance. 

One of the most important performance features of any whole house filter is flow rate, and this Kind Water model has a maximum water flow of 15 GPM. What does this mean? You shouldn’t notice an obvious slow down in your water flow, whether you have a smaller 1-bathroom home or a large home with 6 bathrooms. 

As a cartridge filter, the Kind E-1000 is slightly more limited than tank-based systems. When the cartridges become clogged with contaminants, the water flow rate may decrease. This is more likely if your water contains more total dissolved solids than average. Although the filters are designed to remove contaminants, the poorer your water quality, the more quickly they’ll become clogged. 

In terms of contaminant removal, the Kind E-1000 Whole House Water Filter offers a fairly standard performance, removing a selection of the most common city water contaminants (more on that later in this review).

🔧 Installation & Maintenance

Installing the Kind E-1000 Whole House Water Filter is fairly easy. As with any whole house water filter installation, you’ll need some handy skills and DIY knowledge. The system comes pre-assembled and has a compact build, reducing your maintenance tasks and making it suitable for installation in tight spots. 

The unit can be fitted to most types of plumbing with just two connections. Plus, it can be installed indoors or outdoors, so you have more options for the installation location. You can safely install this unit yourself without voiding the warranty – there’s no need for a professional plumber.

As for maintenance, the Kind E-1000 Whole House Water Filter’s sediment and carbon filters both need replacing once a year (you can sign up for the manufacturer’s AutoShip program to get annual filter deliveries for around $120). This is a fairly average lifespan for a whole house cartridge filter. 

Changing the filters is easy and doesn’t require tools. Simply twist the old filters to remove them from the housing and replace the old cartridges with new ones. Twist the filters back in place – and that’s it.

📝 Filter Info

The Kind E-1000 Whole House Water Filter has two filters: a 5-micron pleated sediment filter and a coconut shell carbon filter. Both of these filters are commonly found in whole house water filters, and for good reason – carbon is one of the best filter media for removing city contaminants, and a sediment filter is required to protect this media.

The sediment filter traps sediment, including sand, dirt, dust, and rust. The carbon filter uses a process known as adsorption to pull contaminants out of water, including chlorine, benzene, chloramine, and hundreds more chemicals and organics. 

If you have city water that contains all the common contaminants, this filtration system should suit you well. It’s not particularly specialized, though, so don’t expect it to remove the likes of fluoride, arsenic, or bacteria.

      Since microplastics are suspended particles, they can effectively be removed by mechanical separation. The smaller the micron rating of the filter, the smaller micro- and nanoplastics it will be able to reduce.

    The description of changing the csrtridges is woefully oversimplified. How about shutting off the water? Replacing the lubricating the o-rings? And there is no mention at all of the pressure valves, which is a pretty big issue, given the total lack of instructions and schematics from the manufacturer. Also, if you have to cut and solder the city water pipes–as we did when we installed this system at our house–you will probably need a plumber. Soldering goes beyond the aberage homeowner’s DIY skillset, not to mention toolset I am happy we bought this product, but nobody is doing the customer or the company any favors by pretending it can be installed and maintained by Grandma.
