Ratings & Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tasting water — easy to install With a few simple tools and the clear instructions provided the Claryum Direct Connect system was very easy to install. The water tastes great and knowing my drinking water is safer than ever is well worth any cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Although it is a bit tall, it was easy to install. The water tastes great. The automatic filter program will make it easy to remember to replace the filter and I won’t have search stores for the correct one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A complete and total improvement in my water I am beyond satisfied with this filter. The installation was very easy but, more importantly, my water tastes phenomenal now. It's also been a great improvement for my humidifier which has a lot less calcium-white-crusty buildup and less fine dust near it. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to install The new filter did not change our water pressure and was easy to install. I do suggest that you check the length of the product to make sure it fits in the space you plan to install in. No noise, works well and is convenient to get filtered water from your faucet to drink and cook with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So convenient! Installed easily, provides great tasting water right from the tap. So much better than keeping a filter on the counter top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just installed and the like it The installation took about 30-45 mins. Was a simple process. The water flows does not seem to be impacted so much. Did you find a significant difference in the taste of water but definitely have a great feeling and peace of mind thinking about drinking pure water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Water So far so good. We have pretty yellow well water and this has done an amazing job filtering it. The water is perfectly clear with great taste. We'll see how long the filter lasts with our poor water though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price Extremely pleased with the the filter. It was easy to install. I bought a some extra parts and installed it on my refrigerator. Made the water taste great.

Will this under sink filter eliminate the lime scale buildup that I see in my tea kettle?

Do you answer questions that are posted? It seems that the majority of questions are referred to “specialists”. You should post the answers that the specialists provide. Ridiculous!

Do you have to turn the water off to swap old for new cartridge?

Asked by: Sail
Hello Sail, Thank you for your question. Yes. We do ask to turn off the cold water supply under the kitchen sink before performing a filter change. After the new cartridge has been replaced, turn on the kitchen faucet to COLD water and run water through the cartridge at full force for at least 15 minutes. This action will purge the system of air and carbon fines ensuring maximum filter life. -Aquasana

I have a separate filter for the ice in my fridge. So If I buy the Clarym direct connect for my sink, what should I purchase for the ice filter in my fridge? the same?

Asked by: EveE
Hello Eve, Thank you for your review. Although it's not the designed intent of this system, the water can be directed to your refrigerator for filtered water. You will be required to separately purchase any parts needed for this type of installation. Unfortunately, we do not supply installation instructions for this type of installation. We highly recommend that you seek the assistance of a certified licensed plumber for this type of configuration. -ACS

FAQ
Aquasana FAQs
1. Do I have to pay for a plumber to install the system?
Our under sink drinking water filter systems are easy to install, and a plumber is not required. If you have any questions or need assistance, please call our Customer Support line at 877-996-2875.
Since this system uses your existing faucet, there's no need for any drilling or modified plumbing. Simply attach the system to the cold water line underneath your sink. It's also easy to remove and take with you to your next apartment or home.
We've designed the Claryum® Direct Connect to give you fast, convenient access to clean, healthy water directly from your existing faucet. Although it's not the designed intent of this system, it can be used with a dedicated faucet. The water pressure from the Claryum® Direct Connect in conjunction with a dedicated faucet will be extremely high. You will be required to separately purchase any parts needed for this type of installation. Unfortunately, we do not supply installation instructions for this type of installation.
The dual port adapter supplied with this system fits 3/8" water lines. This is the most common water line size.
To keep your system working and prevent the growth of bacteria or mold, you should replace your filter every six months or upon reaching the specified gallon capacity, which is 784 gallons for the Claryum® Direct Connect (AQ-MF-1). For pricing, take a look at the replacement here.
To eliminate the hassle of remembering when to change your water filter, sign up for our auto-ship program, Water for Life®. Our no-contract program saves you 15% on filters, includes free shipping, extends your filter warranty.
Claryum® technology is a selective filtration process that uses sub-micron filtration, micron filtration, and adsorption. Together, these technologies reduce up to 99% of 77 contaminants from water while maintaining healthy minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
The Claryum® Direct Connect has the highest flow rate of any Aquasana drinking water filter at 1.5 GPM, while still removing up to 99% of 77 contaminants. It does not require a dedicated faucet, but instead can be used with your existing faucet. All Aquasana under sink filters vary based on the number of filter stages used and flow rate. In some cases, the number of contaminants removed varies.
No, this is not purified water, it is filtered water. Purified water undergoes reverse osmosis or distillation, which strips everything out of your water - not only contaminants, but also healthy, naturally occurring minerals. Our system uses patented Claryum® selective filtration designed to reduce up to 99% of 77 contaminants while retaining the healthy minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
The Claryum® Direct Connect is designed to filter down to 0.5 microns.
No, the Claryum® Direct Connect does not remove fluoride from your drinking water. If you're looking to remove fluoride, we recommend a reverse osmosis water filter such as the OptimH2O® Reverse Osmosis + Claryum®.
TDS, or Total Dissolved Solids, is 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. Read more about TDS here.
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.
No, hard water is not always considered contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard.
Hard water can be city water or well water meaning it may or may not be pre-treated. The minerals that make water "hard" are not considered contaminants, but hard water can still contain additional contaminants that are not safe for consumption.
Soft water is water that has either been treated by a water softener or naturally contains less hard minerals. The most recognizable trait of "soft" water is how much more soap lathers, as opposed to hard water.  Soap lathers less due to the higher concentration of minerals. Water softeners reduce the negative effects of dissolved minerals in water that can clump together and produce scale buildup.
Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the water.
Yes, soft water is considered potable. Drinking water from a sodium-based softener increases your daily intake of sodium, which can lead to health problems in sodium-sensitive individuals. Please keep in mind that a water softener is not a water filter. A water softener does not remove contaminants present in your water.
