Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticable difference and fairly easy install My first shower after installing the whole house and simply soft filters was noticeable. No chlorine smell and a nicer feel with our city water coming from Lake Michigan. As far as the install, hopefully my experience can help people. I asked 4 professional plumbers to quote because the quotes were coming in quite a bit higher than I anticipated. The quotes ranged from $1600 to $800, with the high end quoting 8 hours to install! I thought this was way too much with how easy the install appeared. I bought the pro install kit and with a little research, I had the system installed and leak free in about 2.5 hours. The one plumber said he doesn't work with PEX tubing and would need to invest $30,000 for the PEX tooling. I used the PEX clamp rings (supposedly these are the 2nd generation over the PEX crimp) and bought a PEX clamp tool at our local big box home improvement store for $40. This tool and the clamp rings were crazy easy to use. I also used some push on fittings, which I never knew existed. They are literally as easy as pushing the fitting onto the PEX tube and it is done. If you need to remove the fitting (for re-sizing the length of tube like I did), they sell a $2 plastic key that releases the fitting, and you just reuse the fitting. Total install for the tool and all fittings was approx $150. FYI, the pro-install kit fittings are for PEX (Shark Bite) and not copper, and wish they would tell you that when you order the kit. This was so much easier than working with copper. The install was easier than what I thought and plan on calling two of the plumbers back and tell them I did it myself in 2.5 hours with a $40 tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Instant change in my water quality. There is absolutely no more chemical taste in the water. My skin feels noticeably less dress then before. It feels good to have a unit like this in place and have the peace of mind that I am giving my children good clean water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeding expectations so far. We have only had our system a few weeks, but are very pleased with the results so far. The convenience of having drinking water throughout the house is wonderful. We have not experienced any deterioration in water pressure and the water clarity and taste is better than that that came through the refrigerator filtration before installation. The installation was very smooth and as advertised. I could add a picture but it looks exactly like the one on the website. Looking forward to many years of great clean water with our Aquasana- premium Rhino whole house water filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEYOND EXPECTATIONS! I purchased the Rhino Million Gallon/10-year Whole House Water Filter with Pro Kit & Simply Soft Descaler in late Oct 2017. It has been installed in my home with no leaks since early Dec 2017. It is now March 2018, so it has been in place for about 3 months... I can honestly say, and I say it multiple times daily, that this is the SINGLE BEST ITEM I HAVE EVER BOUGHT FOR MYSELF. In fact, it has been life-changing. ...I have a very overly developed sense of smell and extremely delicate, sensitive skin. I also have always been a very heavy water drinker. I rarely drink soda, etc, just water or tea which is brewed with water. In my previous home in Massachusetts, the city tap water was acceptable with no bad taste or smell, though I also used bottled water there to an extent as well. Upon moving to Cleveland Heights, Ohio several years ago however, I was stunned by the difference in water quality. Yes, they say it meets standards and guidelines and is not harmful, but out of the tap it contains so much chlorine that it is positively, completely nauseating. Since living here for the past several years, I had never been able to drink even a single sip of water from the tap. Even just using it to rinse toothpaste from my mouth multiple times per day, always made me gag & shudder. The smell & taste were truly nauseating, particularly the smell. It was like trying to drink from the swimming pool at the YMCA. My only recourse was spending tons of money and enduring the inconvenience and physical stress of dragging home massive amounts of bottled water to drink & cook with. Also, for the first time in my life, bathing & showering were no longer an indulgent, rejuvenating, enjoyable experience. I actually began showering far less often, and for much shorter times, because the water was so harsh on my skin & hair, and much more alarming, the chlorine fumes when showering were so overpowering. Showering was no longer an enjoyable experience. It was a dreaded chore. The chlorine fumes were like a smack in the face and they affected my breathing. On several occasions, I felt like I would pass out from the hot, steamy fumes or I'd have trouble getting breath. Also, with multiple bathrooms in the house, the air always had that nasty, sour, caustic chlorine smell since the chlorine was constantly volatizing off the water of the open toilet bowls, especially in cool weather when the heat was on. This affected my breathing and, no matter how clean my house was, there was always that sour smell. I am also a constant hand washer and due to the harsh water, my hands were always beyond chapped, and painful & bleading. I was utterly miserable. When I'd mention the issue to neighbors, none of them seemed to notice or mind the problem, and only one neighbor said she had filteted water via her refridgerator. Also, all of my fixtures and appliances had mineral scale which meant lots of time-consuming maintenance. I began researching water filters & softeners and knew, as a single woman, that I did not want to have to lug heavy salt bags to my basement, especially as the years progressed. Then I discovered Aquasana, with no salt needed. Every plumbing company I called for an installation quote tried to steer me away from Aquasana and toward their own salt-based systems. They'd either never heard of Aquasana, or they'd bad mouth the Aquasana, which I took with a grain of salt. After finally finding an experienced plumber to install the system, I ordered the Aquasana. Yet, I was still highly very skeptical. It took my plumber with 40 years experience & his assistant, three trips to get this set up with zero leaks. Each time they were following the instructions that say 'no more than seven wraps of plumber's tape' to the letter, but in the end it was these instructions that were the problem. On trip number three, they strayed from the instructions and used a couple of extra wraps of tape and finally all was good with no leaks. I also purchased a brass, million gallon NSF lead-free water meter from Flows and had it installed along with the Aquasana so I could monitor usage and know when to change out the components. All the extra trips by the plumber to stop this thing from leaking upped my install charge from an original quote of $350 to $650. Also, I think its important to note that, given how much time it took a professional plumber to get this installed with no leaks, it will likely be impossible to change out the tanks without again calling a plumber to do so. I would have gladly paid more to have tanks with metal, not plastic fitting/connectors. My upgrade to the Pro Kit did give me brass shut off valves but did nothing to address this issue which seemed to be the cause of the leaking. Also, it is worth noting that I suffered no drop in water pressure or flow rate with the system installed, which I had worried about. I am truly exstatic to report that I am now enjoying clean, odorless, virtually chlorine-free, delicious-tasting water from every tap in my house, all day long. I'm back to constantly drinking water throughout the day as I used to, with no worry about running to the store or running out of drinking water. It is completely liberating to no longer have to constantly buy & haul home bottled water. The Aquasana water is even better tasting (and better for you) than bottled water because it hasn't been sitting in plastic. The air quality in my home has improved 100% and there is not even the slightest, tiniest whiff of chlorine in my air or water any longer. It's actually impossible for me to describe how great an improvement there's been to my environment & hence my quality of life with the Aquasana installed. My skin and hair have begun to recover from the ravages of the chlorine. My skin is once again becoming soft and far less dry & angry, and my hair is no longer a dry, brittle, frizzy, unmanageable mess. I am once again able to indulge in a very long relaxing shower, and truly enjoy it. The breathing problems have vanished. I even bought a luxury, rainfall shower head to celebrate the great change! As for the handful of reviewers who commented that they saw no change after installing the unit, all I can say is they must have gotten a defective unit or installed it incorrectly. I believe it's simply impossible not to experience a drastic, dramatic change with a working unit properly installed. I swear to you that the difference is staggering & monumental. This would have been a great purchase at even twice the price and is absolutely worth every penny of the purchase and install price I paid and then some. I enjoy the benefits of this purchase all day, every day, and if the specs hold true will enjoy them for years to come. How many items can you say that about??!!! I cannot tell you how life- changing this product has been and I reap its benefits on a constant basis. It is hands down the single best purchase I have ever made for myself. It has restored my quality of life and my dream home no longer feels like a lemon due to poor water quality and chlorine. The Aquasana has exceeded my expectations. It's truly outstanding!

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.

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 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%

User Q & A

If we install a whole house system, can we drink out of the tap or do we need the water filtration as well?&nbsp;

Asked by: Keri
If your house has decent plumbing, after you install the whole house system, you should be able to drink from your tap. There is always the under the counter unit that you can use for added extra protection. I have both, a whole house water filtration system and the under the counter unit.

Where is the spec sheet of what parentage of things in water this removes. Flouride, Pharmaceuticals, Chlorine and everything else?&nbsp;

Asked by: DL Omaha
Our whole home systems are only certified to reduce chlorine, since NSF is limited in the testing they offer for Whole Home systems. We do know that the media used can reduce volatile organic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides and other chemical compounds. We add a pre-filter to help reduce rust, sediment and silt and a .35 micron post filter to remove particulates 60 times smaller than the eye can see. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support

does this filter remove fluoride

Asked by: kellyanne
We do not currently offer a product for whole home fluoride reduction. Fluoride reduction requires Reverse Osmosis filtration, and RO filtration produces at the very least- 3 gallons of waste water for every 1 gallon of filtered water. Because of this waste water, we do not feel that it is worth the waste, or the cost to develop and sell a product that would essentially triple your water bill. We do have an under counter RO system so that you can filter fluoride from your drinking water. Our OptimH20 removes 95% of fluoride plus 87 additional contaminants including lead, mercury, asbestos, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, herbicides, and more. Feel free to check out our RO system here: https://www.aquasana.com/drinking-water-filter-systems/reverse-osmosis-claryum Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support

Does your system have a NSF Cert?

Asked by: Nina6754
Hello, Our EQ-600 (6 year system) has been NSF certified for NSF/ANSI 42. The EQ-1000 system has been tested by PACE labs to the NSF 42 standards, and utilizes the exact same components as the 6 year system. The only difference is the amount of media inside, which allows the system to last for an additional 4 years. Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support
