It is important that at the end of the summer season you check and if necessary change your carbon filter. Unlike the other seasons, water consumption is doubled during the summer as hydration is very important in the heat. This means that your water filter has been used extensively the last couple of months. With August being the last month of the summer it may be time to change the filter as it may be relatively worn out.
You can immediately taste and see a change in the water if the water filter isn’t doing its job anymore, you just have to be aware of it. The taste of the water is going to change, though it changes gradually you may not notice it straight away, but if you think about it and try the water you will be able to catch the difference right away. The tint of the water may change as well, depending on how polluted your tap water is. If you find either of these two obvious signs that your filter is worn out, then it’s time to purchase a new one and change it.
Water consumption increases dramatically during the summer as hydration is a very important aspect of staying healthy under the sun. This is why checking and if necessary changing your carbon filter is essential.
