Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier Install Than Anticipated! I am not the handiest person (I am a computer programmer by trade) so my father was going to install the system for me, but in the interim, I decided to give it a shot and was surprised how easy it was. It took me about 2 hours, but given my general lack of expertise with tools and plumbing, I was very happy and impressed I was able to pull it off. The instructions were very straightforward and the logic of the system is not complex. The system runs beautifully and I'm really happy with it. The waterflow is faster than the counter-top units and the water tastes just as good or better. If you haven't tried Aquasana water, it is far better than Brita or Pur-- it turns municipal water into better-tasting water than most wells (in my experience). Awesome product that nearly anyone can install themselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far works great I ordered the 2 stage under counter filter after talking to a salesperson who was helpful. Package arrived about a week later and had all the necessary components. Installation was straightforward following the video instructions. Hardest part was drilling a .50” dia hole in our quartz countertop but youtube videos helped with that part. Connecting to the water supply went smoothly with no leaks. Water flow rate isn’t great but more than adequate for our needs. The 3 stage would have a higher flow rate but more difficult to fit under our sink. We have using the filter for about a month and it has been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs! Straightforward, easy install for a separate drinking water faucet at the kitchen sink. Filter assembly fit perfectly in the space available, and provided tubing was enough to get the filter out close enough for easy filter changes. Very happy with the filter and service. Excellent product info and support available on website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this filter and company We used a filter that cost 6x this price prior to buying this one and it was really not that much better so when it broke down we looked for a better solution at a better price. We've been using Aquasna for many years now. The Company has always stood behind their products. We upgraded to this new system when it came out about 3 years ago and it's super easy to change the filters. Love the water for life program as it takes the thinking out of it and the added discount makes it a no brainer. The water tastes great and we wouldn't be without it. We've referred several friends who have bought one since we got ours. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Haven't had it installed a long time but like the small faucet that allows use of the regular faucet while getting water. Have used a filter for a long time, so can't speak to a difference in taste, but definitely like the convenience of this vs a faucet mount filter that needs more frequent replacement

Aquasana FAQs

  1. Do I have to pay for a plumber to install the system?

    Our under counter drinking water filter systems are very easy to install, and it only takes a few minutes to do; no plumber is necessary. If you have any questions or need assistance, our technical support representatives at 866-662-6885 can walk you through the installation process.

  2. How often do I have to replace the cartridges and how much do they cost?

    We recommend replacing the cartridges after six months (three months for the single-stage system) or the specified gallon capacity to prevent the growth of bacteria in the system. The AQ-5100 Single Stage has a capacity of 200 gallons, the AQ-5200 Two-Stage has a capacity of 500 gallons, the AQ-5300 Three-Stage has a capacity of 600 gallons and the AQ-5300+ Three-Stage has a capacity of 800 gallons. Replacement filters cost $29.99 for the AQ-5100, $59.99 for the AQ-5200, $64.99 for the AQ-5300 or $79.99 for the AQ-5300+, but you can save 15%, get free shipping, and extend your product warranty by signing up for our no-contract auto-ship filter replacement program, Water for Life. The performance indicating device on the AQ-5200, AQ-5300 and AQ-5300+ systems will sound a beeping alarm and flash red when it is time to change your cartridges. The AQ-5300+ also contains Bluetooth connectivity so you can download our iPhone App and get alerts for when it is time to change your cartridges and even order new replacements straight from the App!

  3. Is this purified water?

    No, and actually, purified water is not as healthy as filtered water. Purified water undergoes reverse osmosis or distillation, which strip everything out of your water - not only the contaminants, but also the healthy, natural minerals. Our system uses selective filtration designed to reduce contaminants from the water and leave in the natural healthy minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

  4. How do I recycle the replacement filters?

    We have designed this system to minimize the environmental impact of our replacement elements, which are over 95% biodegradable carbon. Our company will recycle the filters for you, but we do not cover the shipping cost to return the filters back to us. In reality, the environmental impact of shipping the filters back to us outweighs the good of recycling. To recycle the drinking filters yourself, remove the ends of the filters, recycle the plastic parts (which are appropriately numbered) and put the carbon either in your compost pile or garden (carbon is good for plant life), or just throw it out (since the carbon degrades quickly, and is a positive component in a landfill).

  5. I'm a renter, so I can't drill or modify the plumbing. What should I do?

    To install an under counter system, you can remove the existing sprayer or soap dispenser on your sink and install our faucet in its place. This option will not damage or permanently modify your plumbing. When you move out, you can easily remove the system and reconnect your plumbing back to normal. If you do not have an existing hole in your sink from a sprayer or soap dispenser, we also have a countertop drinking water filter that conveniently screws on to most kitchen faucets.

  6. What is the size of the brass T-fitting for under counter and premium under counter unit?

    The most common size is 3/8" which originally comes with the system purchase. In rare cases some customers may need a 1/2" T-fitting which is sold separately and is available for purchase through technical support.

  7. What size hole do I need in my sink for the under counter and premium under counter systems?

    The faucet that is included with our systems requires a 1/2" hole.

  8. What does TDS mean?

    TDS is the acronym for Total Dissolved Solids, the amount of dissolved minerals and metals present in water. TDS meters tell you the concentration of dissolved minerals and metals, but are not an accurate measurement for contamination. Aquasana products reduce and remove harmful TDS like lead, but selectively retain or replace healthy dissolved solids like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

  9. What is BPA? And why are people concerned about it?

    BPA stands for Bisphenol-A, a contaminant found in most plastics. BPA can adversely affect your health if consumed at high levels. Aquasana drinking systems do not contain BPA, and our filtration process reduces existing BPA.

  10. Does having hard water mean it is contaminated?

    Hard water is more of a nuisance than a health risk, and is not necessarily contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard. Hard water is generally safe to drink, after it has been properly treated.

  11. What is soft water, and is it safe to drink?

    Having soft water just means you have a lower concentration of dissolved minerals in the water (primarily calcium and magnesium). Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still contain contaminants.

  12. What is selective filtration, and how do Aquasana systems filter drinking water?

    Selective filtration is the process of sub-micron filtration, micron filtration, adsorption and ion exchange, all of which selectively reduces chemicals, heavy particulates and most dangerous heavy metals from the water while maintaining healthy minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium.

  13. What is the difference between the single-stage, 2-stage and 3-stage under counter systems?

    All of our drinking water systems use the same Aquasana Claryum® filtration technology. The single-stage system lasts 6 months or 200 gallons before the cartridges need to be replaced. Our 2- Stage system has a higher capacity than the single-stage, giving you 6 months or 500 gallons of clean, filtered water. The 3-Stage system includes a 20 micron pre-filter before the two Aquasana Claryum® filters. This pre-filter increases the capacity of the system from 500 gallons to 600 gallons. In addition, it improves flow rate in high sediment areas. The 3-Stage Max Flow system adds even more capacity to 800 gallons, a 44% increase in flow rate at .72 gallons per minute and Bluetooth connectivity for filter tracking.

  14. I have an existing side faucet from a previous system. Can I use that with my new Aquasana water filter?

    We recommend that you use the faucet provided. We have extensively tested the system with the faucets included. The faucets are NSF Certified to have no lead content. In addition, they will not impart any unwanted chemicals into your water. If you choose to use another faucet, we recommend that you have a plumber install the system to ensure no leakage occurs. We also recommend that you install an NSF Certified faucet to ensure the health benefits of your new Aquasana water filter.

The battery is installed in your unit and will meter how much water flows through or Perhaps restriction of flow due to contaminants. I don’t know how that works exactly.  There is a light that will appear after a period of time to remind you its time to replace your filter.. Your manual will tell you how to reset it I’m sure as I don’t have it in front of me right now.

Hi- We have one of these for our kitchen sink. It is great for cooking and drinking water, but not for a whole RV.

By pushing in on the small plastic inlet and pulling the hose straight out. Pushing in on the inlet releases the pressure around the hose and you should be able to pull the straight out.

How effective is the AQ-5200 or 5300 at removing hexavalent chromium? I see that RO systems are rated for chromium, but not these models. I want to avoid RO if possible, but my city has 0.2 ppb chromium that I want to reduce as much as I can

Asked by: Dominic
Dominic, thank you for your interest in Aquasana! These systems are not certified for the reduction of chromium 6, you will need to utilize RO filtration to take care of this contaminant. Our RO system does have a remineralizer to add the healthy minerals back in before you drink the water. It also has one of the best waste ratios on the market. our system only creates 3 gallons of waste water per 1 gallon of drinking water. Most other ROs will waste at least 5 gallons per 1 gallon of drinking water. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support

Cheryl, thank you for your interest in Aquasana! The system will ship from our facility in Haltom City, Texas. Standard shipping is 7-10 business days, and upgraded shipping takes 3-5 business days. The undercounter part of the system is about 8 inches wide, 4.5 inches deep, and 9 inches from top to bottom, but you will need to allow a few inches underneath so that you can access and change the filters. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you! Aquasana Customer Support

Not a question, but a suggestion. I wish you would make an under counter unit that does NOT require a separate faucet. I don't want to lose my sprayer or replace my faucet with a pull down model just so I can install a water filter.

Asked by: Chris H
Hi Chris, thank you for your feedback! The faucet that comes with our system is not designed to replace your existing main faucet. Instead, it will be a secondary faucet. So if you have a beverage faucet, or a built in soap dispenser, then you will just pop that out and put ours in. Due to the need for water to have a certain amount of contact time with the filtration media, it would not be feasible for the current systems to be installed with your main faucet. It would diminish your water flow, and you would no longer be able to use hot water, as it would damage the filters. I will certainly pass your suggestion along to our product development team, but I wanted to briefly explain why the systems are designed the way they are. Please feel free to give us a call at 866.662.6885 if you have any other questions, concerns, or suggestions. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support

Hi. I'm thinking of buying one of your two stage systems for our cottage. I see that the filter is good for 500 gallons. That's likely 2-3 years of water at the cottage. Can I remove the filter and store it in the offseason? Thanks.

Asked by: Jason
Thank you for your interest in Aquasana! While our filters are certified for 500 gallons, we suggest replacing the filter in that system every 6 months. After 6 months we can no longer guarantee the performance will continue to meet the same filtration percentage reduction as the performance data. This is because after 6 months the filter will start to become over saturated and the media will start to degrade. In the case of filtration systems, it is not always necessarily the amount of water that has passed through the system, but the amount of time that the filters have been in contact with Water. Keep in mind that while you may be using a minimal amount of water, the filters are constantly soaking in the water, waiting for a valve to open, and the water to resume flowing. Once the filter starts to degrade due to elongated contact with water, you risk bacteria and mold growing inside the filter and the system: Heterotrophs (heterotrophic bacteria) are a group of microorganisms (yeast, molds & bacteria) that use organic carbon as food (as opposed to autotrophs like algae that use sunlight) and are found in every type of water. We base our estimates and requirements on the testing done by the NSF and make suggestions based on the safest and healthiest way to maintain our systems. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support
