Stainless Steel Cover: Do I need it?

Stainless Steel Cover in Whole House Water Filter

Since 99% of the Whole House Water Filter Installations are on the side wall of your house, and therefore exposed to the sun and water, the Stainless Steel Cover is designed to protect the system in extreme conditions, specially from sun damage.

The Stainless Steel Cover acts as a shield, protecting the filter and its components from physical damage, potential UV degradation, or any other external factors that might compromise the filter’s functionality or lifespan.

Here are 5 benefits of the Stainless Steel Cover in the AquaCo Whole House Water Filtration System:

  1. Enhanced Durability: Stainless steel is renowned for its strength and resilience. The cover, made of this material, ensures that the AquaCo Whole House Water Filter is safeguarded against potential physical impacts or damages, prolonging the system’s lifespan.
  2. Protection from Elements: The stainless steel cover acts as a barrier against harmful UV rays, rain, and other weather-related elements, preventing any UV degradation or water damage, and ensuring consistent filter performance.

Note: Filter housings, when left unprotected, are vulnerable to ultraviolet (UV) rays and environmental factors that can cause discoloration, material degradation, and increased brittleness, leading to cracks. Such exposure not only compromises the aesthetic appeal but also reduces the structural integrity and effectiveness of the filtration system. This degradation can shorten the system’s lifespan, making it susceptible to leaks or bypassing of contaminants, potentially resulting in higher maintenance costs and frequent replacements.

3. Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel doesn’t rust easily. This means the AquaCo Whole House Water Filter is protected against corrosion that could be caused by exposure to moisture or various chemicals, ensuring the system maintains its integrity over time.

4. Aesthetic Appeal: Stainless steel covers often have a sleek and modern appearance. By encasing the AquaCo Whole House Water Filter in such a cover, it not only serves a functional purpose but also enhances the aesthetic appeal of the installation, making it a complement to the exterior of the home.

5. Thermal Regulation: Stainless steel can reflect sunlight and help insulate against extreme temperatures. This means that the AquaCo filter is better shielded from potential heat-related damages or freezing in colder climates, ensuring the system operates optimally regardless of seasonal changes.


A cover for the filtration system is not merely an optional accessory; it’s a crucial component that helps in maintaining the efficiency, longevity, and effectiveness of the whole water filtration system. It safeguards the housing from environmental stressors that can degrade its quality and compromise its function.
