Rated 5 out of 5 by from water filter and softner Highly recommend for people who like softeners also conditioner for water. Great that you don't need to buy salt and carry to basement

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with Quality but We purchased the Rhino 1m gallon system with whole house filter, softener & UV. We paid just over $2K with a sale. We paid a pro plumber about $1800 to install. Compared to our Culligan RO water this water is comparable for drinking. As for the softener/descaler it seemed to take a while to notice the difference. I would say we haven't been rid of hard water completely but it is better. I assume the UV is working but haven't had our water quality tested. In our last home we had a whole house filter and softener from Culligan but you need to use salt. However compared to cost it worked out about the same with exception of the plumbing ends up in crawl space so the unit looks nicer without the octopus of piping we have based on where our main comes into the garage and where we had power for the UV so something to consider. We did notice our water pressure dropped when using more than one faucet which could be an issue from the plumbing performed. We have read this system will not affect pressure so we can only assume it's the plumbing installed by our plumber. I would say we're happy with it but based on our set up and how it had to be installed I would have preferred our Culligan system which in price was comparable. Actually preferred the plumbing installation for Culligan system (behind walls, crawl space). All things considered if I could go back in time I would have had Culligan installed (even considering we would need to add salt) based on our garage set up and guarantees and warranty on plumbing vs. this DIY/Contract installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system and value I purchased the EQ1000 whole house filter system with salt free softener, main reason was not having to deal with salt as well the chlorine levels were terrible. Before install water hardness was 291 ppm, chlorine was off the chart. After 8 days of use I retested the water, hardness was 50 ppm and chlorine was ZERO. Absolutely impressed. Best of all, not dealing with salt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system, I can taste the difference. Awesome system. Easy enough to install, although it wasn't without its small leaks at first. But the water quality is out of this world. I live in Denver where our water is already very good but this made it better, something I didn't think possible or necessary at first, but after some research this was the best decision I've made for my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate results and experience! The water in our area is very hard, and high in chlorine. We should have had this system put in when we built the house, but decided to wait. Big mistake. Our plumber is licensed and has already installed these systems. He came in, and in no time had it up and connected. What a difference the Aquasana Whole House system has made in our water. We did add the softener system, and glad we did. The water coming out of the fridge is incredible, and totally different than before. No more odor, and there’s been no change to water pressure. OMG our shower glass no has no spots when we finish. Anyone on the fence, should just take the leap and get it...you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bottle quality from faucet Works great to filter our horrible city water. We luckily don't have chloramines so we didn't need the more expensive system. This system is cheaper than competitors with similar technology(only con is other systems in same class as this do remove cloramine). If it lasts the 1 million gallons that would make it perfect. Also the 20" prefilters are only 20 micron, but the 10" are 5. I have 20 inch prefilter, but got 10 micron prefilter from elsewhere. Water will look cloudy upon first installation, this is normal with high quality filters, the post filter is .35 micron. It is air bubbles nothing more. It clears right up and stops altogether as soon as air is flushed from filters. If it is cloudy from rap longer than a few hours then you have a different problem. I have a video of thus will try to add. The salt free system should be passed on if you have over 20 grains hardness, they say 25 I would disagree. I'm at 21 see no decrease in scale buildup and hard water stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole house filtration/softener system Filtration System became operational on May 1, for most of the house. I have noticed feeling cleaner after showers, but I haven’t drank the water yet. I’ll let it flush for a couple more days since I piped it in copper instead of PEX or PVC. The Pro Installation Kit was mostly not needed because I opted for copper, but there were a few small pieces in there that I did need to complete the installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Difference In A Dayv Our large glass shower wall and enclosure is now squeaky clean and easy to maintain because the hard water is no longer present. My wife was astonished by the before and after difference!

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 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.

  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 conditioner 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 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 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?

    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.

  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%
