Mr. Sinclair's comments are focused on selling filters. Washable electrostatic filters can have much higher MERV ratings than the disposable ones. So you are getting better air filtration for you and your furnace. The water from a washed furnace filter is no more toxic than the water you wash the floor or walls of your house. You flush or pour that down the drain. Anything will grow mold if you put it away damp. Let it dry out first, (Duh!) Over time, the disposables cost more than the washable, plus the cost of disposing and landfill issues. If you want higher filtration, spend less money, have a more environmentally friendly home, use a washable filter, clean it every 4-6 weeks and let it dry before you put it back in place.

Air and Water Filters in your house benefit at least two aspects of your life; Health and Cleanliness.     Every house is different, so it’s important that you find out what you’ve got.   Filters can range from a complicated assembly to a simple screen.   When changing a filter, record the date it was changed, and where possible write the date on the filter itself.
All you have to do is screw this water filter system on to your kitchen faucet—there are no tools required! The PUR Filter well then remove more than 70 contaminants from your water, including 99% of lead, plus chlorine, mercury, and pesticides. Each filter can be used on up to 100 gallons of water, so the manufacturer recommends replacing the filter every 2 to 3 months. Reviewers say that the unit is sturdy, easy to install, and doesn't leak, providing fresh, clean water every time they turn on the faucet.
The body, which is often called the canister, is significantly larger for these filters than it is for other types of filters. Each canister will have locations to hold each different type of filter media, and the large canisters will have more filter media. This type of filter does take more effort to set up and maintain, in exchange for its power and flexibility.
Door to Door went into bankruptcy while my containers were in transit from Austin, TX to Sacramento, CA. There was NO communication from them as to where my containers were and WHO would deliver them. I googled them to find out what the heck happened to them.......no one would respond to emails or phone calls. I spent 6 weeks tracking them down and finding out that UHaul had bought them out of bankruptcy! I had to physically walk the UHaul container yard to FIND my containers. This was the WORST moving experience ever imagined.

Most of us, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, are consuming water that contains the residue of treated sewage, industrial waste, agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, fluoride, disinfectants and their byproducts, as well as storm runoff. Growing awareness of the problem is why more consumers are seeking whole house water filter options. 

The filter with more pleats per foot across the face will allow you to have better airflow throughout your home.  The more air that flows through your house, the more often it is passed and re-circulated through the filter. The end result is cleaner air because of the higher frequency of air passes through the filter.  For example, if you could find a way to install a hospital grade operating room filter in your home unit, it wouldn’t do you much good because your fan and motor doesn’t have enough power to push enough air through it.  A good quality filter with a high MERV 11 rating can actually leave you with dirtier air than using a cheap 1 dollar filter if the MERV 11 filter doesn’t have enough pleats per foot.  Less pleats per foot is a cheap and dirty way for filter sellers to trick buyers into thinking they are getting a better deal. Insist on MERV 11 filters that have a minimum of 18 pleats per foot!  Source

That’s what comes to mind for most people when you mention a filter in a house.  One of the first things you should do when taking possession of a house is to change the furnace filter.   Think about it – it’s got other people’s dust and dander on it.   Start fresh.   Write down  the size and note which way it’s installed.  With some filters it matters which direction the air is flowing, so don’t get it backwards.  Check your furnace manual to be sure what you should have.    Most large hardware/home stores carry the standard sizes.   Replace it at the start of each heating season, at least.   If you have central air conditioning, this filter will be catching stuff year round. Check it monthly and change it if it looks dirty.

One of the benefits of working with a smaller company that doesn't have a port in every city is that you should be able to get in touch more easily and get more attention. I did not have this experience, especially since I could not even follow through on the reservation process. But smaller companies tend to work harder to make customers happy as a means of competing with the big boys. Also, this company seems to be localized in each of the geographic areas it does serve, which indicates it knows each zone well. That comes in handy when navigating streets on moving day and offering tips to clients.

On the other hand, college students who had used the moving service reported lots of back and forth because the company said it had "overbooked" and could not deliver their stuff to them on time. In the end, the students ended up paying movers to pick up their stuff and spent more than they had planned, according to a review posted by Hali M. in Stanford, CA.
The simple way is to look at the manufacturer’s tank size which is typically shown on the box. However, this is just a general guideline and depending on your fish you may need more or less. That said I always start with a filter than can turn over my tanks water volume at least 10x per hour. So for a 10-gallon tank, I would want something that is rated with at least 100GPH.
For those homes with hard water, a salt-based softener can mitigate the effects. However, these systems are limited in that they do not provide any removal or filtration of chemical contaminants. Many people find a water conditioner to be superior to a softener because a conditioner requires no salt, no backwashing, no electricity, and no maintenance.
Compared to The Home Depot’s method of ranking air filters (FPR), MERV has wider range. While FPR’s rating system goes from 1 to 10, MERV’s rating system goes from 1 to 20. FPR 10 is similar in strength to MERV 20, since they are both the highest rating value. However, FPR 1 doesn’t necessarily equate to MERV 1. It isn’t until FPR 4 and 5 that filters start trapping larger particles like household dust and lint, dust mites, pollen and pet dander. Meanwhile, MERV 1 to 4 will trap all these pollutants. Some examples of MERV below:
