This is a budget priced, counter top, Reverse Osmosis system that can give you almost as pure filtered water as distilled water

Reverse Osmosis utilizes one of the most effective water purification technologies available today to purify your tap water from mostly all chlorine, fluoride and heavy metals etc. for safe drinking. Reverse Osmosis is typically a very slow, but very effective method of purifying water due to the extremely small filter hole sizes in the RO membrane filter (3rd stage). Aperture is only .0001 micron (0.1 nm) so it can effectively remove very small bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticide residues, and other harmful substances that the other filters in the unit cannot.
Why buy this RO unit?
This system can produce about 115 litres of very pure, sweet tasting, water per day. It can produce more/less depending on your water pressure and filter age though. This is why having at least a 7 litre automatic filling storage tank, is essential. Just like producing a good wine takes time—so does producing good water.
But most RO units only use 2 or 3 filters total, so do not produce good tasting water, and the water is also slightly acidic after filtering due to some taste and colour distortion by the RO membrane (3rdstage) filtering process. Other RO units can have too many filters too that unnecessarily slow down your water flow—but make for a good sales pitch.
Our 4 stage RO system includes a 4th stage “post filter” coconut-shell carbon filter (installed after the RO membrane filter) that uses the best filter material available for producing sweet tasting water every time.
Our RO system only uses NSF approved fittings and high pressure tubing. The tube is colour coded making it easy to install and maintain, the “white” is supply water, the “red” tube goes to drain. The membrane used is NSF 58 standards approved, this is most important as there are cheap copies sold today which may not actually remove the contaminants claimed.
How much Water can I expect from my Reverse Osmosis System?
This unit is suitable for MORE than 1500 litres of water, and all filters could last you up to 12 months depending on your usage, water pressure, temperature, and source water quality (we give you one spare pre-filter free to ensure this). We recommend to change them earliest 6 months and latest 12 months, but again it really depends on your usage. The 3rd stage RO filter membrane is built to last a little longer than the others, and under normal operating conditions will last for 1 - 2 Years before it needs replacing (often longer depending on your water source quality).
Other differences of our RO unit
1. All of our 4 inline filters use quick-connect push-in type hose fittings
2. Easy remove (slide-off) lid and rear cover for filter replacement
3. Easy access, vertically installed filters that are not tucked away, mounted on the base of RO unit, or mounted on top of one another sometimes making access and filter changing difficult.
4. Many RO units only give you one option for water supply– not above or below the sink like this unit does
5. Our RO unit has an easy on/off tap to push your glass up against for easy one-handed pouring
6. Our RO unit stands taller from the counter top to tap to get larger water containers under it too (190mm)
7. No need to drill holes in your counter top for faucet or hose installation
8. This unit provides you with periodic manual “back-flushing” of the RO membrane filter (via red tube) to extend filter life, keep filtered water purer, and remove any build up of filtered heavy metals etc. in the system
How easy is it to install this RO unit?
This unit comes with two options of obtaining your water supply from – above sink or below sink. The quick-to-install “above sink” method uses the tap diverter valve that installs to your kitchen tap head in just 5 minutes.
Then you just attach the quick-connect “white” water supply tube from the tap diverter to the “white” plug inlet behind the RO unit. If you wish to drain the excess contaminants out of the RO membrane filter occasionally (for faster water filtering) you attach the “red” plastic water drain tube to the red plug (also located on the back of the RO unit) to your kitchen drain.
It also comes with a “below sink” option for your water supply and drain water. If you are a handy person you may attempt this method yourself or have a plumber install it for you. This includes the saddle valve and drain clamp pictured in this listing.
Everything included in one attractive unit for immediate installation
1. 4 stage filters included (all) - (see 4 stage explained below)
2. You get one spare “pre-filter” (PP-33) to hopefully help your RO unit filter water for 1 full year
3. RO unit is assembled, ready to insert RO membrane filter after you flush system with water before using for the first time
4. All water supply/drain fittings are supplied
5. 7 litre, self-filling storage tank
6. All water tubing supplied
The 4 stages of filters
First stage: Spun PP-33 filter:5 micron Sediment Filter This stage filters our course particles such as sand, dirt, rust particles, algae, mud, small insects and other sediments.
Second stage: CTO-33: Activated Carbon Filter Pressed and grained activated carbon (block carbon), has strong absorption properties, which can remove dichloroethylene, bleaching agents, pesticides, odour, colour, other toxins and other possible cancer inducing trihalomethanes (TTHM). An ‘activated’ carbon cartridge is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions. Just 1 gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500 m2 (about one tenth the size of a football field), source Wikipedia.So the way it works is that the water will be push trough the cartridge which contains activated carbon, hence there will be a chemical reaction and the carbon will absorb most of the harmful elements in the water.It will filter harmful chemicals, 99% chlorine, bad odour, bad taste, reduce pesticide, rust etc. But it doesn't filter out minerals – your RO membrane does that.
Third Stage: Reverse Osmosis Membrane:50GPD (gallons per day capacity) A resin cartridge, utilizing sodium to removing toxic heavy metals in the water, also reducing calcium (responsible for kidney stones) magnesium and other heavy metals.
The RO membrane filters, all impurites down to .0001 micron (0.1 nm), so can effectively remove bacteria, viruses, pesticide residues, and other harmful substances from the water that contaminates your potable water supply.
Fourth stage:T33-33: Taste enhancing & odour removal filter Post “activated” coconut-shell carbon filter that absorbs any discolouration or odours from the Reverse Osmosis (3rd stage) filtering process, thus greatly improving the final overall drinking water quality.
