You just set it up where the main comes in? Did it effect water pressure in the house?
Yes, where the main comes in...
A bunch of valves to divert in case the filter system needs to be replaced, changed, drained, shut off, etc.

Blue pipe is from the main. 1st T is feed to filters. 2nd T, Red up to filters, white to drain valve. Also have valve after filters back to Blue, which then feeds water heater and cold to taps.

Did not effect water pressure, until they start to get dirty/clogged.

"Big Blue" 2 stage filter. 20" x 4" filters.
Changed out the blue housings to clear. If you can see the dates I've changed them. Sometimes water is cleaner than other times of the year. 2021 is when I switched to the clear housings. Hated relying on just the pressure gauges, prefer visual as well.

Did you put a descaler too? This is recommended for tankless.

So, back in 2009 I installed a tankless hot water heater. A year or so later, it wasn't functioning properly. Needed new flow sensor and check valve. Happened again the next year. Real pain in the butt to drain the system, replace, etc. Came to the realization my city water was filthy, clogging up the works. Decided to install a, (on the cheaper end), whole house water filter, "Big Blue". Have to replace the sediment filter quarterly and the carbon twice a year, but WoW what a difference with having to not change any RODI filters/Resin as often.

After seeing what gets filtered out of my so called clean city water. Would recommend adding to any and every house! Glad I'm not drinking or showering with it anymore!

1st Pic is new filter and sediment after 3 months. 2nd, whatever sludge that would normally come through the tap.

Yes I think everyone should have a house filter.
