Rated 4 out of 5 by from aquasana 10000000 bought this system had great experience with salesperson who followed up with my online order. System elliminated chlorine smell from water, however i have the cheap zero water particulate meter so i tested before filter and after got the same reading where out of the zero water filter i have zero particulate reading. I am still happy however and can understand that to filter whole house the filters must flow at a higher rate and thus pass more particulate. Water lab tests are too expensive to accurately measure effectiveness of filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4th Aquasana filter Over the years I have had two Aquasana shower filters and one Aquasana under the sink filter. They worked just fine. I finally decided to put in a whole house Rhino filter. It was installed, by a registered plumber, outside my house for ease of installation. We live in central Florida and our coldest temps since we have lived here were 3 nights at 28*. No problems with freeze. The filter, after two months, seems to be working as expected. I should have installed one years ago. The tap water now tastes clean (no taste). There has been no change in water pressure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installation Guide made the installation a breeze I was able to be the plumber's helper a few weeks ago during the installation of our Aquasana whole house filter system with UV. Once the decision was made relative to the location of the components and the best places to cut in we had the system up and running in just a couple of hours. I had preformed the pre-flush of the charcoal unit a few days in advance which made the installation easier that day. We have peace of mind now with our filter system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased a month in I bought this filter system due to concerns over contaminants in the water and also my son's sensitive skin. My son's skin has completely cleared up since showering with Aquasana filtered water - no more topical steroid creams needed for eczema. Very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good tasting water I installed the Rhino system in Raeford, NC two weeks back. I noticed while taking a shower the chlorine level dropped off. The shower was much more refreshing. The water taste great. The eczema on Tyler our 18 month old has gone away. No doubt Chlorine related. They Chlorinate very heavily here. We have had a Rhino filter working in our home in Alabama for many years now, it is still going strong. The only down side are the tapered threaded fittings, four out of 6 leaked, until I re- taped. The directions suggest concern over too much tape splitting the housing. I would suggest Aquasana use non-tapered thread with Orings at the ends to seal. Or cast solid the filter tops all the way to the pipe unions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it The only thing I didnt like was that you don’t have any professional plumbers in the area to instal the unit. I didn’t like that i had to find one myself, in my opinion, you should offer that to each client. It took me almost two months to get it installed, the first professional plumbing company did t k ow what they were doing and mess the filter up and had to order me a new one, so I had to wait. I was very lucky that my friends know a professional plumber who knows how to instal water filters and he did amazing job, but again, in my opinion, considering how expansive and complex this unit is, you should take care of having it installed as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard water I bought this 1,000,000 gallon rhino and I still have the hard water problem so NO I'm not satisfied with this product. I'm not certain if I'm getting purified water either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not impressed yet I had our system installed and like other reviews there has been an issue with the post filter leaking I called and they sent out a replacement cap and canister for the filter even though I told them it was not necessary to send the canister. I had the plumber come out and replace it and it is still leaking the same as the last one. We took a picture to see the threads better on the filter cap and you can see a seem running through the threads so I will need to call and find out where to go next to fix the issue. The water does seem to be better but we still have some noticeable hardness in the water. I mentioned this to the customer service rep and they were quick to point out that this system does not remove the hardness from the water... my only issue with that is the sales side does not go out of there way to tell you that even when you tell them that is one of your biggest issues.The plumber noted that the fittings supplied are on the cheap side so if you choose this system you may want to invest in better fittings. If you have hard water you may need to invest in system that can soften the water and remove the hardness. It is a bit misleading that one of the tanks is called a softener when it is actually a conditioner. I will update this review as things progress so far support has been responsive so I am hopeful. The other thing that bugs me is one of the filters needs to be replaced in 6 years or about 600,000 gallons when the system is advertised as a million gallon system it seems that tank should be sized to accordingly to match the name.

Aquasana FAQs

  1. What is the difference between city water and well water?

    City water is pre-treated to make sure it is free of bacteria, viruses and common contamination sources. City water is regulated so that the contaminants regulated by the EPA fall within or below EPA guidelines. Well water is untreated water from an underground aquifer that is pumped into a house. Well water may contain higher than average levels of iron or sulfur, or other contaminants.

  2. Why are whole house water filters considered point of entry systems?

    The filtration system is installed at the point where the main water supply enters the home, delivering filtered water to all subsequent outlets.

  3. What is hard water?

    Hard water contains a higher than average amount of dissolved minerals (primarily calcium and magnesium), and a higher concentration of multivalent cations (Ca2+ and Mg2+). Hard water is mostly a nuisance as these dissolved minerals can clump together to produce scale, which can harm your internal pipes, plumbing, and home appliances.

  4. Does having hard water mean it is contaminated?

    No, hard water is more of a nuisance than a health issue, and is not considered contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard. Is hard water safe to drink? Yes, hard water is healthy enough to drink.

  5. What is soft water?

    The most recognizable trait of "soft" water is how much more soap lathers, as opposed to hard water, in which 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.

  6. Does having soft water mean it is clean water?

    Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the water. Is it safe to drink? Yes, soft water is considered potable as long as the water has not passed through a sodium-based water softener. Drinking water from a sodium-based softener increased your daily intake of sodium, which can lead to health problems in sodium-sensitive individuals.

  7. What is a salt-based water softener?

    A salt-based water softener is a system designed to remove/reduce calcium and magnesium from the water by exchanging it with sodium. This is done through an ion exchange resin that alters the molecular structure of the calcium and magnesium from a divalent ion to a univalent ion, making the water "softer." Do softeners reduce chemical contamination? Softeners do not remove chemical contamination themselves, but softeners sometimes have a carbon filter working in conjunction with the softener to treat contamination.

  8. What type of filtration media do you use in the top tank of the EQ-600 and EQ-1000?

    The top tank contains a KDF-55 medium (A mixture of 55% copper and 45% zinc mineral alloy) for the reduction of chlorine and certain heavy metals, as well as a crushed mineral filter stone to enhance the water's pH and control scale on internal plumbing. Both media are bacteriostatic, which means they prohibit bacteria and algae from growing or developing within the system.

  9. What type of filtration media do you use in the top tank of the EQ-WELL-UV?

    The EQ-WELL-UV top tank contains a KDF-85 medium (A mixture of 85% copper and 15% zinc mineral alloy) for the reduction of chlorine, hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals like iron, as well as a crushed mineral filter stone to enhance the water's pH and control scale on internal plumbing. Both media are bacteriostatic, which means they prohibit bacteria and algae from growing or developing within the system.

  10. What is KDF?

    KDF stands for kinetic degradation fluxion, which is a redox filtration medium. KDF uses a unique combination of copper and zinc that creates an electrochemical reaction. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new, harmless molecules and compounds. Free chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Similarly, some heavy metals* such as copper*, lead*, mercury* and others, cling to the medium's surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply.

  11. What type of media is used in the bottom tank of the EQ-600 and EQ-1000?

    The bottom tank contains a carbonized coconut shell medium that reduces synthetic chemicals and VOCs.

  12. What type of media is used in the bottom tank of the EQ-WELL-UV?

    The EQ-WELL-UV bottom tank contains a carbonized coconut shell & catalytic medium that reduces synthetic chemicals, hydrogen sulfide gasses and VOCs.

  13. What percentage of chlorine do Aquasana Whole Home Systems remove and for how long?

    The EQ-600 is certified by NSF International to reduce >97% of chlorine for 600,000 gallons or 6 years. The EQ-1000 is also tested to reduce chlorine by >97% for 1,000,000 or 10 years, and the EQ-WELL-UV reduces >97% of chlorine for 500,000 gallons depending on water quality.

  14. Do any of your whole house filters remove calcium?

    Our whole house filters do not remove calcium. To reduce calcium or other hard mineral buildup, we offer whole house filter + salt-free softener combo systems.

  15. What is the flow rate of aquasana whole house filter systems?

    All Aquasana Whole House Systems perform at 7 gallons per minute (gpm).

  16. Will I experience a drop in water pressure after installing the whole house filter?

    As long as your home is less than 3500 sq. ft. and you have 3-1/2 bathrooms or fewer, you should not experience any noticeable drops in pressure. If you have a larger home, we can build a custom system to deal with the typical water capacity of your home.

  17. What is chloramine, and do your whole house filters remove it?

    Chloramine is a disinfection agent comprised of chlorine + ammonia used as an alternative to chlorine in some city water treatment facilities. They use chloramines for two big reasons: (1) chloramine is less reactive, so it does not create as many disinfection by-products as chlorine, and (2) chloramine is more persistent, and remains in the treated water through the distribution network all the way to the taps in the homes the treatment facility serves. For customers with chloramine in their water, we offer the EQ-400. The EQ-400 features upgraded catalytic activated carbon media , which has a higher surface point and is able to handle the aggressiveness of the chloramine for a longer period of time than the standard coconut shell carbon used in the standard whole house systems. The EQ-400 is available for purchase by calling the Aquasana Water Specialists at 866-662-6885.

  18. Do the whole house systems remove bacteria or viruses?

    Our EQ-WELL-UV Well Water Whole House Filter comes standard with the Aquasana Sterilight UV Filter specifically designed to kill bacteria and viruses. For our city water whole house systems (EQ-600 and EQ-1000) that do not come standard with the UV filter, we offer the Sterilight UV Filter as an add-on item that easily attaches to any of our whole house filter systems.

  19. Do I need a licensed plumber to install the whole house filter?

    Yes, Aquasana recommends you have a licensed plumber install the system for you, to ensure that the system is installed properly. Since most licensed plumbers carry insurance to cover any damages caused by an installation error, having a licensed plumber install the system for you will give you the security that the work was done properly and that the installation is backed up by the plumbing company's insurance plan. Not having the system installed by a licensed plumber will void the warranty of all our whole house filter systems.

  20. Is UV effective against protozoa such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia?

    Yes, as a result of recent findings by academic researchers, it has now been proven that UV is the best available technology to treat these protozoan cysts. In addition, the dose levels required to inactivate these cysts are actually quite low: less than 10 mJ/cm2 for 99.9% reduction of both Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia.

  21. Why do I need to disinfect my water supply?

    Disinfection is recommended for all water supplies that are not protected by a municipal water source. Unfortunately, due to the uncertainties that exist with our current water supplies, we can no longer rely on the fact that our water supplies "may be safe". By providing your own disinfection, you are taking the responsibility of ensuring the safety of your water supply for you and your family.

  22. Does UV remove E. coli?

    Yes, E. coli requires a UV dose of between 6 to 10 mJ/cm2 to achieve a 4-log (99.99%) disinfection. This is well within the capabilities of our UV systems which actually deliver a minimum of 30 mJ/cm2.

  23. Is UV 100% effective?

    UV disinfection typically offers a 4-log reduction (99.99%) for both bacteria and most viruses. UV is more effective than chemical disinfection processes at destroying a wide range of viruses.

  24. Do I need to disinfect my municipal water supply?

    Our municipalities work very hard to provide safe, disinfected water for their customers. This is quite evident when you consider the difficulties involved in providing safe drinking water through a vast distribution network. If you use water that comes from a municipal water supply and wish to provide your family with added "peace of mind", then we believe a UV system acts as an inexpensive insurance policy against the possibility of drinking bacteriologically contaminated water.

  25. How much does it cost to operate UV systems?

    UV systems are extremely economical to operate. A typical 10 gpm whole house UV system operates on the same power requirements as a 40 watt light bulb!

  26. Will UV change the taste of my water?

    No, UV is a physical disinfection process. It does not change the taste or odor of the water. It simply provides safe, reliable disinfection and adds nothing to the water.

  27. Should I shut my UV system off when I am not using it?

    No, the UV system should be left on whether you are using the water or not. The lamps age regardless of the amount of water drawn through the system. By leaving the unit on, you will eliminate the potential problem of having contamination pass through the system while the unit is off. However, if water is drained from your disinfection system (e.g. winterizing), your UV system must be switched off.

  28. What are the annual maintenance requirements?

    UV lamps have a useful life of approximately 9000 hours which means that the lamps require annual replacement. The UV light may offer illumination beyond 1 year, however there will not be enough UV energy to provide adequate disinfection. Proper maintenance of any pre-treatment is also required. The sleeve should be cleaned at least once a year.

  29. Do I need to consider the quality of my water prior to the UV?

    Yes, our UV filter is designed for water that has already been filtered through a home filtration system and not as a standalone unit. For UV to be effective, it is recommended that the influent water contain the following:
    • Iron < 0.3 ppm (0.3 mg/L) • Manganese < 0.05 ppm (0.05 mg/L) • Hardness < 7gpg
    • Tannins < 0.1 ppm (0.1 mg/L) • Turbidity < 1NTU • UV transmittance > 75%

In Chicago we are only allowed to use copper and not PEX for piping, does this void the warranty for an EQ 1-million system with pro kit and UV light?

Asked by: RichF
Hi Rich, We cannot recommend allowing copper piping to entering our system, due to the fact that metal will expand and compress with temperature changes, and this will likely damage our system and cause leaks. I would suggest consulting with your plumber to see if there is a way to use copper piping, without the copper actually going in into the inlet of our system. If you opt to use all copper, please know that it will void the warranty and there is a high chance of the plastic inlet and outlet cracking over time. Thank you, Aquasana

Does the EQ1000000 with pro kit, and UV light remove all lead and heavy metals? You say that 97% chlorine types are removed but I do not find this system in the NSF listing,oversight? Are there better filters to filter down to 1micron for this system?

Asked by: RichF
Hi Rich - The 1,000,000 gallon Rhino will reduce lead and heavy metals, and it does remove 97% of chlorine. The NSF listing will be for our 600,000 gallon rhino system - the 1,000,000 gallon rhino uses the same media, just requires more for a larger volume of water. It sounds like you may also be interested in a drinking system that will filter an even greater amount of contaminants from your water. Due to the detailed nature of your question, I am having a water specialist reach out to you. You should be receiving a direct e-mail shorty.

Can I use the water from this system in my fish tanks?

Asked by: CaptMac
Our system removes 97% of chlorine, so it should bring your water to a much safer place for fish than tap water. If your water is treated with Chloramines, they are much harsher on fish than chlorine due to the added ammonia and cannot be removed by letting your water sit or through boiling. Either way, due to the fact that this involves living animals, we would suggest that you still follow any normal fish tank procedures like water-conditioning drops and temperature regulation to ensure the life of your fish.
