Whole house water filter - flow rate


I am looking to install a whole house water filters (simple inexpensive cartridge type, not a big complex system), and they all advertise a flow rate, usually 5 gpm, some higher. What does this refer to? The maximum flow possible through the filter? Or just the maximum flow recommended for the most filtering, but flow can be higher? I know sometimes I will exceed 5 gpm.

Thanks!

the flow rate will change depending on what type of filter element you put in, and as it gets dirty the flow rate will diminish..so get a big enough filter to give you what you need...
