Pond Filter, Car Washing Filter, Garden Filter, Pool Filter — Works anywhere you use a garden hose.

If you need an outdoor water filter to make chlorine-free water for your petunia bed or your dog's water bowl, to reduce the hardness in the water you use to wash your car or rinse your patio, or to remove the chemicals and chlorine from the water that fills your outdoor fish pond, here's the easy and inexpensive way.

Our Garden Hose Filter Lineup

Our basic garden-hose filter uses standard-sized (2.5" x 9.75") filter cartridges and connects to standard 3/4" garden hose fittings. You'll need two hoses — one to provide an inlet and a second to deliver the water to its point of use. The adapters are included as well as a mounting bracket in case you'd like to hang the filter on a wall or the side of a garden cart.

Suggested Applications

What the filter does depends on the cartridge you put in it. Here are some typical uses:

Car washing & spot free rinsing. You'll get an improved car wash if hardness is a problem, but we recommend that you read our discussion of the illusive "spot-free car wash" as well as our capacity chart for softening cartridges.

Sediment filtration for removal of sand and silt and for cleaner, clearer water in general.

Chlorine, chloramine and all-around chemical reduction for plants & animals. To water your garden, fill your dog's bowl, or add water to your fish pond.

Remove iron from water for hot tubs and small pools. (Iron reduction is tricky and cartridge capacity is limited. We recommend that you read more about iron reduction or call for advice before purchasing.)

Raise the pH of acidic water.

Provide high quality drinking water for outdoor workers or athletes.

White Garden Hose Filter

White Garden Hose Filter

White filters cost less than clear, not because they're inferior but because it costs more to make a clear filter housing. White housings have the advantage of not allowing algae to grow, as sometimes happens with clear. (Algae need light.)

Each unit inludes the following:

  • Garden Hose Adapters (Installed)
  • Mounting Bracket with screws
  • A Filter Wrench

A filter cartridge is not included. It must be ordered separately.

Clear Garden Hose Filter

Clear Garden Hose Filter

Clear garden hose units are handy because they allow you to view the condition of the filter cartridge without opening the housing. This is a nice feature if you're using a sediment filter or a carbon block filter. It has the disadvantage of costing a bit more.

Each unit includes the following:

  • Garden Hose Adapters (Installed)
  • Mounting Bracket with Screws
  • A Filter Wrench

A filter cartridge is not included. It must be ordered separately.

GH102 Clear Garden Hose Filter $40.00 Add to Cart

Double Clear Garden Hose Filter

Double Garden Hose Filter

Double filters have twice the filtration capacity and the advantage of multi-purpose use. For example, placing a sediment cartridge in the first canister will protect the more expensive carbon block cartridge in the second canister from premature blockage from sediment. Double filters are especially valuable if you're removing chloramine, which requires longer contact time for removal. Two softening cartridges last twice as long as one.

Each unit inludes the following:

  • Garden Hose Adapters (Installed)
  • Mounting Bracket with Screws
  • A Filter Wrench

Filter cartridges are not included. They must be ordered separately.
