Installing The Hydrocare DualPlexx Water Filtration System ~ No More Bathing In Water With Chlorine And Flouride



Because I had candida, I need to make sure my drinking water has No Chlorine and No Flouride.  Here is a post I did when I first started this blog.  Is Your Drinking Water Making Your Candida Worse.   If I would start drinking what I consider BAD water, I know the candida would grow back in no time.

It is also not good to be showering or bathing in water that has chlorine or flouride in it.  Since our bodies are like a sponge, it sucks all the bad stuff right up in it.  Then, your liver has to do double time to filter it all out.

Last week in a post, Is Your Drinking Water Making You Sick  I told you I was expecting to get the Hydrocare DualPlexx Water Filtration System.   Whooo Hoooo!!!  It is here.  It came Thursday   We then scheduled our plumber to come on Monday.









My Hubs laid everything out so the plumber could see exactly what he was dealing with and... so I could show you pictures of everything that came in my 2 boxes.









Most all the fittings came with the Dual Plexx but since I didn't want to filter the outside water, we had to run a couple more lines to make it so that wouldn't happen.

If I wouldn't have had the hair brained idea to not filter the outside water, these are the only fittings we would have needed.   But, I thought it was a waste to filter water that is going to wash our cars and clean our porches.









My Hubs decided to put the Dual Plexx Water Filter System in the side of the basement where all the other equipment is ... like the hot water tank, furnace etc.   


I had wanted to paint the walls last year and my Hubs said, why paint them, no one sees them.... well look at this.  You all are seeing my ugly basement walls.

I can tell you one thing.... these walls will be getting a coat of paint.

They decided to put a board on the wall first to hold the metal bracket that holds the water filtration tanks.



So with the board mounted and the metal bracket on, they were ready to start putting the tanks in place












Here is is all hooked up and ready to go.  They are now turning the water on and I hope there are no leaks.     I never have to worry about this plumber because he has never left and I found a leak yet.










Ahhhhh..... My first bath in Chlorine Free, Flouride Free water. 

One thing I can tell you... the water is much softer than before.   We don't have to use as much soap as before   and ... No CHLORINE SMELL!!  None at all.








As I said before, we looked for a very long time for a system that would take out Chlorine and Fluoride and leave all the good minerals in the water.  The Hydrocare Dual Plexx is the very first one we have seen that does this.

 Since the Dual Plexx system has an 80,000 gallon capacity we should only have to change  the media once a year.  It really depends on your water usage, I guess if we get crazy using the water, we will have to change it more often.


I know many of my readers are also looking for a system to clean their water also.   Julie,  here is the link for you to check it out to see if it will work for you. http://hydrocareusa.com/  I hope it does... you will be so happy with it.   You can also check them out on facebook.  I think they will answer your questions there too.

  2. The walls are better than my basement walls - which are pure cement slabs :)

    You are so lucky that you got to use this & I am happy you have something that works.

  5. I am always worried about the chemicals in our water. I will have to check them out! Thanks!

  6. This type of water filter is quite trending right now. We don't own a house yet so we haven't installed it in our current home. But when we do have a house one day I would definitely have this installed!

  7. I'll keep this in mind when I get a house, as I live in an apartment now, and the water quality is really bad.

  9. This is neat! Our water is really bad it even has a smell (gag) We have an old house maybe this is a good idea!

  10. I think this is great. It's so important to try to not expose our bodies to anything that could be harmful. Being able to come in contact with water that is more pure is wonderful.

  11. I need to pin this for future reference. There is something seriously wrong with the water where we are at now. My scalp is acting up BAD!

  12. Looks pretty easy to install

  14. Huh....I never thought about bathing/showering in water with chemicals, only drinking them. Maybe that's why my family has so many skin problems. This will be something to look into. Thanks!

  16. It's so nice for you now to have that chlorine and flouride free water, I know it must make you feel so much better about your baths.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great news that you've found a system that perfectly meets your needs!
    I'll have to do some research about British water - all those chemicals make me nervous!
    Thank you

  18. I know the feeling of bathing in pure healthy water. We too had to install a water purifier system in our home. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am thinking about getting such a system myself for a long time. It is really horrifying thinking about what our water really contains! This seems to be a great system, I will have to check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm so glad you found a system you like!! It doesn't look like it was too awful hard for the plumber to install either. Very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Seriously, this is an amazing system! It disgusts me to think what is in our water! Glad you had the opportunity to test it out to let us know all about it!

    I am lol at your hubby at the painted walls. Mine tends to pull the same crap- No one will even see it. Then BAM, I regret not pushing for something when someone DOES see it lol.

  22. This system is much smaller than what I expected. I am going to have to have my husband read this and see if he thinks this is something we might want to have. I think your basement walls look fine. In our part of the country, no one even has basements, LOL.

  23. I LOVE THIS! I want to get one once we get our own house! I have a shower head that filters out chlorine and fluoride from our water. And I seriously love how soft it leaves my hair, skin and I just feel a lot better. But I only have ONE shower head, but three showers and 4 sinks, plus our laundry room that needs a filter. This would be perfect! I want something that will filter all the water coming into our house, not just in my personal shower.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OH I'm so excited it came! I've been looking forward to hearing how it works. We have well water, so no chlorine or fluoride but I'm sure there's other stuff. natural minerals and such.
    I hope it helps you. Enjoy that "clean" water.

  25. I definitely need something like this in my home. The water here is HORRIBLE, we don't bother to drink it, we don't cook with it, the only thing we do is bathe in it. We buy our water so this would surely save me some money as well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That bath looks so inviting!! And love it doesn't have any of the things in the water you don't need or want.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am glad you have a filtration system that is working for you. I wish we could have that where we live but we do not own this house.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am so glad that you were able to get results so quickly. How wonderful that you no longer have the smell either. It looks like a great system.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love to have one of these filtration systems in my house! I know the next house we buy we will definitely get one. We won't be were we are for much longer or I would do it now.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'll be honest, I do worry about our drinking water but really neglected the fact that our bodies absorb the water we bathe in too. I am so glad your water will be chlorine and fluoride free. I wish you all the best.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hope the system works well for you. I was wondering how much of a difference you would be able to tell. Sounds like it's pretty nice!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have one too. But not this brand

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sounds like a great system! Water is so important.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I bet that bathtub felt great!

    ReplyDelete
  35. It must be a nice feeling knowing that your water is clean. The installation looked like it went smoothly. I wish that our outside water was filtered - it has a lot of iron in it, so if we fill up a kiddie pool within hours you can see the iron on the bottom - not very inviting! Enjoy it Terry!

  36. Great post! My mom had candida too! It was awful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was looking forward to this post! Seems relatively easy to put together. I'll be looking into this option for my family as well!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow! That's a very nice filtration set. Glad that it would take away chlorine and fluoride. :)

  39. This looks great, Id never think about what is in the water if I wasnt drinking but this makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  40. cool, this hydrocare looks like a great product. we don't really drink water from the faucet because of chlorine and sometimes when its raining the water turns brown. I like this product. Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  41. That's pretty cool! Our water is so hard. I bet it would help with that too!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm in Colorado and with all the flooding our water tastes like dirt! This would be a great solution!

    ReplyDelete
  43. this is awesome. we had a small filter on our shower in Phoenix *super hard, horrible water* - this looks like a good option

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have never owned anything like this, but I think it would come in very useful in our household.
