Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier We live in a city with municipal water. The water is NOT hard, is pretty decent tasting, but defineately had an after taste of chlorine. I purchased the Whole House System with the Pro Install kit. I am a home handyman and have done limited plumbing in the past. I ignored the 'have a professional install' warning and completed the install myself. It was easy (especially with the Pex water lines) and the filter completely removed the aftertaste from the water. The water is as good, if not better than the very best tasting filtered water. Clean, fresh, no after taste. It actually changes the taste of coffee and tea for the better. Every tap in the house, both hot and cold has filtered water with no noticeable drop in pressure. A few months after the install we had a catastrophic main line water failure. The line from the city seperated from the line to the house and basically we had limited water pressure caused by the water pooling in a pocket of dirt and mud was being forced into our house lines. The problem was caught within a few hours. Most of the grit was stopped by the very porous filter in the pressure reducer (before the filter system) and the 20 inch pre-filter did it's job in trapping most, if not all of the sediment that entered our water lines. The house water was never turbid from this water line failure. None of our plumbing was clogged by the dirt as it didnt get past the filter. The system worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied and Highly Recommend I have been a customer of Aquasana for many years. I upgraded from the under-sink filter took advantage of the 50% off discount on the website and ordered the Rhino whole house filter with salt free water softener, Sterilight UV Filter, and pro-grade install kit. I have been using the system for almost two months and couldn't be happier with it. I appreciate that Aquasana had a list of recommended plumbers who are experienced with installing these whole house filters. As far as the performance of the filter, I could tell right away that the water tastes much better. Before I had the filter the water had a very distinct chlorine taste and smell. The water now tastes much better! My clothes even smell better and feel softer. The soap suds up better when showering and my skin feels softer. I notice much less scale buildup in the shower and around the faucets. There is a very slight decrease in water pressure if multiple sources of water are running at the same time but it is not an issue as there is still plenty of water pressure. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with this product, Aquasana’s customer service through the process, and the installation job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from as advertised! I am a relatively handy/ mechanically capable guy, so the installation was somewhat simple. My only gripe is with the cheap parts setup. Hoseclamps and brass nipples only go so far. If the kit had the slip-connect/ sharkbite connectors, it would be absolutely top notch. Other than that, I am extremely happy with our system. I can fill my ponds without chemicals or worry of compressed gases from the currently deep well. No more stink in my dishwasher or washer, its wonderful! Right price and great performance and fantastic customer service thus far, I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! Pretty easy to install. Did it myself. I did not have rust/iron in my water, but I did measure the hardness at 300. I was worried that the descaler would not work, but it did. I no longer need to add descaler detergent to my dishwasher. Water tastes great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of water is excellent and great price We immediately noticed the difference in the quality of the water. The water taste a lot better than city water. No more after taste and water is so soft. Fast delivery. Instruction manual is very clear and easy to understand. However it will need a lot of time to get it installed depending on how it will be setup. But it is very easy to put them all together.

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%

Does the system remove fluoride?

Asked by: Water specifics
We do not currently offer a product for whole home fluoride reduction. Fluoride reduction requires Reverse Osmosis filtration, and RO filtration produces a minimum of 3 gallons of wastewater 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 our customers) to develop and sell a product that would essentially triple your water bill. We do have an under counter RO system so that removes over 5% 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 Many of our customers combine the two systems for their home filtration.

Does the whole house purification system reduce PFAS parts per trillion in the water?

Asked by: Scott74
Thank you for your inquiry. All of our drinking systems are NSF certified P473 for the reduction of PFA, PFOA, and PFOS (PFC). The EPA lists activated carbon as a filtration method for removing PFOS and PFOA, which all of our systems contain, and all of our drinking systems are certified to remove. The Whole Home system is not certified because the filtered water must then go through your pipes, we cannot guarantee that contaminants are not in your pipes and being picked up after going through the system. However, we can say that our Whole Home Systems do remove PFOA and PFOS. With the drinking systems being point of use with our faucets and tubing, we can guarantee the contaminant is removed.

Does this system reduce high iron and manganese levels in well water?

Asked by: KathleenRose
Thank you for your inquiry. Our whole home filters will not remove all of the iron or sulfur smell in your water. Activated carbon filters can remove low levels of sulfur sediment, manganese, and iron. However, maintenance and replacement of filter systems are very high because sulfur, iron, manganese and other suspended materials in the water soon clog the filter. And because the levels in well water change, we do manufacture an Iron Filtration tank to deal with these.
