Water FIlter Sydney

We love freshwater, free from impurities and advocate for the installation of water filters in homes across Sydney. Whether you’re looking for a filter repair or a complete replacement, Pro Plumber is here to help…


What are some common water filter problems?

Your Pro Plumbers install water filters right across Sydney and have plenty of experience with a range of models. Common problems we see are:

  • Low-quality water

  • Bad tasting water

  • Dirty water 

  • Low pressure from your filtered water 

If you’re experiencing any of these problems with your water filter, contact Pro Plumber for a free quote to get it fixed or replaced in no time. Scroll down and read through a bunch of helpful tips and insights into water filters and some of the issues you might experience.

Water filter basics

The most common household water filters use what is known as activated carbon granules, sometimes called active carbon or AC for short. This is based on charcoal (a very porous form of carbon, made by burning something like wood in a reduced supply of oxygen).

Charcoal can be best described as something between the graphite “lead” in a pencil and a sponge. It has a huge internal surface area, packed with nooks and crannies, that attract and trap chemical impurities through a process called adsorption (where liquids or gases become trapped by solids or liquids).

When should I change my water filter?

We are often asked, ‘how often should I change a water filter?’. The quick answer is water filters need to be changed periodically, as the filters are capturing particles and there is a limit to the amount a filter can hold. How often is entirely dependent on how much water you consume.

Specifically, we need to take into account the number of litres flowing through your system and the period of time that the filter has been in the unit. At a maximum, nearly all systems require filter cartridges to be changed at least every 12 months. This ensures optimal performance and quality of drinking water. Keeping in mind the volume rule, the more you drink, the sooner you’ll need to change the filter.

Installing a new water filter

Installing a water filter system is a great way to improve your families health & well-being and at the same time save money on buying bottled water. Of course, there’s a global benefit – we help reduce the levels of plastic bottles that end up in landfill.

There are a lot of different water filters on the market and choosing the one that’s right for your family really just comes down to spend versus performance. While there are minor differences between brands and models, the good news is they all do the same thing more or less and, at a certain level, the results are the same.

Plumbing-in your filter is an easy job for your Pro Plumber. We’ll knock it over in no time at all. Of course, you can try and do it yourself too. Each filter comes with varying degrees of install difficulty. If you find yourself stuck after starting, don’t hesitate to contact us. You’d be surprised at the number of call-outs we get where people have tried to do their own plumbing and gotten in a little deeper than they’d anticipated (sometimes literally!)

With years of renovation and new home build experience, Pro Plumber are your go-to for home plumbing installation. Kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, gardens.

Leak Detection

Pro Plumber have expert leak detection technicians which means we find the source of the problem without having to dig or destroy anything.

Leaking Tap

That constant "drip, drip" sound! It's enough to drive anyone mad. Not only is it torture on the mind, it's also probably wasting a lot of water and costing you money.

Toilet Repair

No one likes a toilet that doesn't work. It makes things kind of awkward, especially when you have friends over. Impress your friends, get your toilet fixed.

Blocked Drain

We get it, blocked drains are annoying. It seems like the water still goes down the drain but it takes an eternity and, in the meantime, the slightest use means your sink, shower or toilet overflows.

Gas Plumbing

You know that saying, "cooking with gas"? It's popular for a reason. One of the best ways to cook, heat your home and produce hot water, is with gas. Pro Plumber installs but also repairs gas plumbing systems.

Hot Water

Who doesn't like hot water!? We're not saying a cold shower isn't required from time to time but we really appreciate hot water - especially in Winter. Also, it helps clean things way better than just cold on its own.

Water Filter

Mmm clean water, free from nasties that upset tummies and leave you on the toilet for hours. You'll also save the environment and the hit to your hip pocket when you don't have to buy plastic bottles.

Gutters & Downpipes

Properly running, leaf-free gutters and downpipes are such a wondrous thing to us plumbers. This ensures the water flows away from your property or into a rainwater tank for later use. It's also safer in bushfire season.


Cracks in roof tiles suck in a big way. It's one of those things you don't notice until it's too late and the damage has been done. Lucky your Pro Plumber has plenty of experience with this kind of thing and can sort it out in no time.

Rising Damp

Yuck! Not only does rising damp make for a very sick house and inhabitants, if left for too long it can become a very costly problem to fix. It's best to get onto this before you have to sell a kidney to save your house.

Pipe Repair

There's nothing more satisfying for a Pro Plumber than repairing an existing pipe and saving our customers money they might have otherwise been encouraged to spend by someone suggesting entirely new pipes.


You know the coolest thing? Being able to water your garden without having to lift a finger! Even better, is controlling it with your phone. Ask us how we can automate your watering system.

Subsoil Drainage

Keeping water away from your house, especially under it, is actually way more important to the health and safety of a property than most people think. It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it.

Annual Inspection

Preventing problems BEFORE they occur is the name of the game here. If you sign up to our annual inspection program, we can keep on top of issues before they become costly.

Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater tanks are compulsory for all new home builds and there are two main reasons why - they save us money and reduce the burden on the local water system and helping the environment.

Fixed, Same Day

We had water leaking throughout our bathroom. Chris, the Pro Plumber, came out for free and was able to work out where it was coming from within minutes. They fixed the problem and were done the same day.

Dolls Point

Highly Recommended

I found Pro Plumber on Facebook and messaged them for a quote to renovate my bathroom. Chris was friendly, professional and did a great job. We’re really happy with the result and highly recommend Pro Plumber to all our friends and family now.

Clean, quick and no hassle

These guys are great! Can’t recommend them highly enough. Such nice people and get the job done properly. They’re clean, quick and no hassle to deal with. The best thing was, I knew exactly what the job would cost me before they did the work. Nice not to have any financial surprises. My last experience with a plumber was horrible. I’ll definitely use Pro Plumber again.

L. Ward


Fixed my blocked toilet

I called Chris from Pro Plumber for a quote to fix my blocked toilet. He was at our place the same afternoon and fixed the toilet in no time at all. He then offered a free inspection of the rest of my bathroom plumbing and found an issue with the drainage system. We booked in a return visit within days and he fixed that too. Such a great service and not as expensive as I thought it would be.
