Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly Having hard water with ‘floaters” was concerning. I appreciate the system being relatively easy to install, the quality or the water, as well as the affordability. Not being a multimillionaire, and being able to get a quality system was impressive. My only recommendation would be to watch the installation video as well as reading the guide

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Piece of Mind Just recently moved to an area where the city water is not the best quality so we bought water from the store for drinking and cooking. To remedy the situation I installed a whole house filter and the OptimH2O RO system and we are very pleased with the taste and quality. I had the whole house system installed by a professional plumber and I installed the RO system myself. It was very easy to do the install. Instructions were complete and there was also a video to help if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I was able to install the filter with no problems and no leaks. As far as the water itself, it's clear, no bad smell to it, and it taste good. I don't drink a lot of water by itself but the coffee taste very good and is smooth. No complaints from my dog either. Without having the water tested for any contaminants I am hoping the filter is doing it's job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I’ve had the system installed for a couple of months now and I am really enjoying it. Although it is not advertised to provide 9.5 pH or higher, it’s holding its own with the Essentia water I use to purchase. I bought a water testing kit and tested it for five times over the last couple of months and consistently have a reading above 10.0 pH. I have the under sink system along with the whole home system. I’m not sure of having both systems helps to produce such fabulous results but I’m very happy. I did have some issues with installation and having the plumber come out a couple of times to troubleshoot why there was so much noise when the tank refills. It turned out the plumber failed to install the water flow restrictor. The Aquasana team was great about diagnosing the issue and even sending out a replacement flow restrictor when we realized the plumber threw it out. The only down side is the faucet could not be installed very tightly. So long as no one slams it on or off it has not been a problem. I also had to have a hole drilled into my countertop in order to have the system installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. The water tastes fine, but since our city water is pretty good to begin with it's difficult to judge how well the system is working based on taste alone. I performed the installation myself and it was easy, but I'm pretty handy with tools so decide for yourself if you're up for it. I did have to replace the existing water valve since I have an older home and it was the original valve. If you're not up for doing some minor plumbing repairs you probably want a pro to do the installation. It shouldn't take a pro more than an hour to complete. Also keep in mind that if you have a garbage disposal system it's going to be a lot more crowded under your sink than in the installation video and you'll need to work around it. The instructions for starting the system for the first time were a little confusing, don't expect a full stream of water until the system is fully charged and during the initial 24 hour system flush.

Aquasana FAQs

  1. Do I need a plumber to install the system or can I install it myself?

    Depending on your existing skills and experience, we recommend hiring a professional to install your reverse osmosis system. Installation does require drilling into your pipes which is not recommended for individuals unfamiliar with plumbing and permanent appliance installation. Please read through the owner's manual carefully before attempting to install the system. 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 membrane?

    • Stage 1 (Carbon) and Stage 3 (Claryum) filter cartridges should be replaced every 6 months or 365 gallons. To make replacements easier and cheaper, these cartridges are eligible for our Water for Life auto-ship program. Get free shipping, the best discounts, and an extended product warranty by joining Water for Life.
    • We recommend replacing Stage 2 (RO Membrane) every 2 years depending on usage and water quality. For homes with higher water usage and/or poorer water quality, you may need to replace your RO membrane every 1 to 2 years. For homes with lower water usage and/or better water quality, you may only need to replace your RO membrane every 2 to 3 years.
    • We recommend replacing the remineralizer every 1 year depending on usage and water quality.

  3. Is this purified water?

    Yes. The Aquasana OptimH2O uses reverse osmosis to effectively purify your drinking water. In addition to reverse osmosis, the OptimH2O system also uses selective filtration to reduce over 60 other contaminants, plus includes a remineralizer designed to put back healthy minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium that are removed in the reverse osmosis process.

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

    Unfortunately, drilling into your water pipes is required to install the Aquasana OptimH2O Reverse Osmosis system. If you already have an existing hole for a vegetable sprayer or soap dispenser on your sink countertop, our AQ-5200 and AQ-5300 Under Counter Drinking Water Systems can be installed without making permanent changes to your sink and are great options for rental properties. If there is not an existing hole on your sink countertop, we also have two countertop options that offer the same professional grade filtration as our under counter options (please see the Powered Water Filtration System or AQ-4000).

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

    The faucet included with the Aquasana OptimH2O is specifically designed and NSF tested and certified to work with our reverse osmosis system — any other Aquasana faucet or faucet from another filtration system not designed to work with a reverse osmosis system will not work for the Aquasana OptimH2O and may cause damage to your filtration system. If you choose to use another reverse osmosis air gap faucet, we recommend you enlist the help of a plumber to ensure proper installation.

  6. Why is it important to flush my OptimH2O Reverse Osmosis System during the initial installation?

    When RO membranes are manufactured, there is a preservative used to protect the membrane fibers from damage. This preservative needs to be flushed out after the system is installed and prior to drinking water from the RO system. In addition, the RO holding tank should be sanitized with a drop of bleach during the install. It is important to flush the system for the entire 24 hours during the initial install to ensure all the bleach from the holding tank is washed away before consumption.

  7. 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. Aquasana OptimH2O comes standard with a 1 year remineralizer designed to replace healthy calcium, magnesium, and potassium lost in the reverse osmosis process.

  8. Does the Aquasana OptimH2O remove fluoride?

    Yes. The Aquasana OptimH2O is NSF Certified to remove over 95% of fluoride from your drinking water.

  9. Does the Aquasana OptimH2O remove arsenic?

    Yes. The Aquasana OptimH2O is NSF Certified to remove over 97% of arsenic from your drinking water.

  10. How many gallons does the RO holding tank store?

    The RO holding tank stores 3.2 gallons of water at a time.

  11. What is the flow rate of the Aquasana OptimH2O?

    OptimH2O flows at a rate of 0.5 gpm (gallons per minute).

Tested water from commercial RO, high, and Deionized water filter. The RO readout of 002, high PH tested 009 and the deionized was 000. Those are pure water reading. Countertop AquaSana readings are 099-102. Curious as to why it is not more pure.

There is a tiny white plastic piece that comes with the brass T setup and slips on the tubing to make the seal. I seem to have misplaced this and would like to know how I can go about getting another one please.

Asked by: So Thirsty
You'll need to call the company. They send out these questions to other customers who purchased the same item instead of reading them an answering them as they should. Your best bet would likely be to check with a plumping supply store or a home improvement store such as Lowe's.

What replacement cartridge removes arsenic?

Asked by: dcarlson
The Stage 2, RO Membrane filter exclusive to the RO system. I believe this is one of the benefits of employing a reverse osmosis system. I have been using one for several years now and am confident of its ability to provide the best drinking water. The other systems to my knowledge do not remove arsenic.

Can the re-mineralizer work with the under counter three stage filtration system?

Asked by: hlyrler
A re-mineralizer would be a nice addition to any filter system, especially one that removes the good with the bad, like a reverse osmosis. If by "works" do you mean "fits"? With my 3 stage RO filter the storage tank it by far the largest part...about the size of a 20lb propane tank. The in-line re-mineralizer is small. It all fits under the counter in your sink base.
