The Engdenton Faucet Water Filter is a faucet-mounted filtration system that’s certified to eliminate up to 99 percent of lead and other contaminants found in water.
The filter’s selling point is that it has a stainless-steel exterior that perfectly blends in with most standard faucets a lot better than a majority of the plastic filters available in the market. The fact that it’s made out of steel means that it’s leak-proof and a lot more durable than plastic water filters, which tend to crack or wear within a few months.
The Engdenton Faucet Water Filter allows users to enjoy about eight cups of water per minute thanks to its fast flow rate. Furthermore, installing the filtration system is quick and easy, and doesn’t need any special tools or skills to set it up.
The filter’s maximum life is six months, which is quite good considering that the lifespan of most water filters in its class is 2 to 3 months. However, it’s worth noting that the actual lifespan of the filter will be determined by your water usage.
Another thing worth noting about the Engdenton Faucet Water Filter is that it can only be used on a standard faucet as it does not come with adapters for faucets with unique or different designs. Fortunately, the manufacturer does provide a photo guide that shows compatible and non-compatible faucets for users to refer to!
Key Features of the Engdenton Faucet Water Filter
Stainless-Steel Filter Housing
Since the filter’s housing is made of stainless steel, you can rest assured that it’s tough and is designed to last. Furthermore, it’s styled to perfectly blend with most stainless-steel kitchen faucets so that it doesn’t look out of place or odd. The housing also holds the filter in place and keeps it from getting clogged up by particles in the air.
Filter Cartridge (BY-SA-055C)
The cartridge used in the Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration system has a lifespan of six months and is designed to quickly and efficiently eliminate over 70 different contaminants found in water. However, it is worth noting that it does not remove TSDs or “totally dissolved solids.”
Engdenton Faucet Water Filters come with various faucet adapters that allow users to fit them to a majority of standard faucets. Nevertheless, you are still advised to get in touch with the manufacturer or check out their faucet-filter guidelines to ensure that the filter you get fits your faucet before buying one.
User Manual and Instructions
While installing an Engdenton Faucet Water Filter is quite simple, the manufacturer still includes an installation manual for reference. The manual also contains useful information about filter changes and how to maintain the filtration system, which is a good thing.
The Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration system is one of the best faucet filters currently available on the market and is one of few filtration systems with a relatively fast flow rate. With the Engdenton Water Filter, there is no need for you to wait for water when parched, as it’ll flow out of the filter at practically the same speed/rate it’s flowing out of your faucet.
According to the filter’s manufacturer, the Engdenton Faucet Water Filter can produce up to eight cups of water/minute, which is quite impressive, to be honest. However, you should expect to see a much slower rate once your filter reaches its maximum filtration capacity. Fortunately, this is an issue that can be easily resolved by replacing it with a new one.
With certification to eliminate up to 99 percent of lead and about 70 other water contaminants, the Engdenton Faucet Water Filter is amongst the top faucet filters available today. However, the one thing that sets this filter apart from the rest is its durability. Since it’s made out of stainless steel, you can rest assured that it will last for years without breaking, cracking, or leaking.
Installation and Maintenance
Engdenton Faucet Water Filters fit most of the standard faucets available today. However, before deciding to buy one, make sure you check to see if your faucet is compatible with the filtration system. Fortunately, the company has put up a video that allows users to see if the filter will fit on their type of faucet before they commit to buying it.
To install the filter, all you need to do is unscrew the housing cap, remove the filter and unwrap it before inserting it back into the cartridge and screwing the cap back on. Once it’s in place, the next step is to remove your faucet’s aerator and check to see if your faucet is external or internally threaded.
The Engdenton Faucet Water Filter is designed to fit external-threaded faucets, so for internal-threaded faucets, you might have to use the adapters that come with the filter to fix it in place. Once you have determined which way is right, screw in your filter, and flush it with water for about one minute before using it.
Since the body of the Engdenton Faucet Filter is constructed using stainless steel, it’s more durable and sturdier than a majority of plastic filters. This alone eliminates the chances of a leakage developing over time, meaning the filter will serve you for longer. However, just like with other faucet filters, you still have to change the filter after some time to continue enjoying clean, purified water. Fortunately, the filters used in Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration systems last for 6 months, which means you only have to change the filter in your system twice a year – or three times a year for water with tons of contamination.
The filters used in the Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration system use PAC technology to remove chlorine, water sediments, and improve the taste of the water you drink. However, it is worth noting that there is virtually no information online concerning PAC technology right now. But just because the company calls it the latest tech, that does not mean we entirely trust what they say. Nevertheless, from what we’ve seen during our tests, it seems to accomplish its task very well, and that is filtering water and getting rid of contaminants.
Luckily, there is one thing that’s backed by science, and that is the activated carbon filter used in the system. While activated carbon filters cannot eliminate “totally dissolved solids” (TDS), they do a good job of filtering out VOCs and chlorine, and they do this by trapping them in the filter pores, allowing only the tiniest particles in water to pass through.
In their advertisement, the manufacturer claims that the filter is made using Japanese carbon fiber, which has 10X more filtration ability and a much longer lifespan. We are unsure of whether or not it’s NSF certified since the manufacturer hasn’t provided any information regarding this.
Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration system filters can be bought from Engdenton or online from various filtration parts stores.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many carbon-activated filters does the filtration system come with?
A: Just one, which you will find inside the system’s housing. If you need more filters, you can always buy them from the company itself or online.
Q: How good is the filter at reducing TDS?
A: Well, no faucet filter can effectively do this at the moment. The only solution that is capable of reducing/eliminating “totally dissolved solids” is reverse osmosis.
Q: How do I tell it’s time to change the filter?
A: One of the first signs you’ll notice, and which are a sign that you need to replace your filter, is decreased water flow. This is often due to the filter getting clogged over time. And since this system does not have an indicator light that lets you know when it’s time to replace the old filter, a change in flow or taste is a good sign that you need to replace the filter ASAP.
Q: Does the filter used in Engdenton Faucet Water Filtration systems remove water cloudiness?
A: Yes. You can use it to make water that looks cloudy clearer, as the polypropylene stage of the filtration process removes rust, dust, and other sediments that cause water to look cloudy. However, please note that that you might have to change your filters more often if your water high levels of sediment
Q: Are the adapters also made of stainless steel?
A: Yes. It’s worth noting that there isn’t a single plastic component or piece in this water filtration system.
