Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great long lasting whole house filter system This was a replacement of an already existing whole house water filter. The new filter looks to be the same configuration and quality as the old one. I expect the new filter will perform as well as the old one. I have been pleased with the taste of the water and am confident of the filter functionality. System was professionally installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate Improvement to Water Quality We ordered the Rhino Whole House 1,000,000 gallon system. Once the system was installed by a plumber, there were immediate results. Our water taste was immediately improved. Our hard water disappeared. We couldn’t be happier with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Whole House System The filter is amazing and has made a huge difference in our water. It is so clean and feels amazing when showering. I highly recommend this system. The only thing was the installation is not something we could have done on our own. Hire a professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modular Home Exterior Installation We ordered this EQ-1000-BASE-UV from Aquasana directly, because their price matched Amazon and all other online sellers. Plus we could buy exactly what we wanted instead of Amazon's limited bundle offer. List price was $2,764, but with a $1,658 discount we paid only $1,106 plus tax and zero shipping, which was very fast and safely packaged. We had looked for filter systems with UV included before (especially after the 2018 fire that ravaged our town), but were discouraged by the high prices and thankfully got lucky with a year end sale. Because we have an older modular home with galvanized plumbing underneath and poor access, we were forced to re-route the water source to install this system outside. We picked a back wall closest to the water source, where the least sun and weather exposure will be. We opted to not buy the installation kit that had specific pipe lengths since we weren’t certain what our final configuration would look like, until all parts arrived and we assessed placement. In the attached photo the system is mounted to a rear, exterior wall. To the right (not shown in this pic) is the UV unit (mounted horizontally) and wall plug below it that was installed with a rainproof bubble cover. Further pipe insulation will be installed and the UV unit will have a rain-tight, insulated cover built and mounted to the wall (allowing bulb-change access and window to read the monitor). I left the current covering with temporary protective material out of the pic for less confusion. This system was installed by a person with 40+ years building experience including plumbing, who is also a C-10 Electrical Contractor, so their knowledge and experience were a big help to get this working safely with the best possible installation for function, access, and being out of sight. We noticed immediately that our water tastes, looks and feels better (smoother/lighter), and is totally clear! Our old water filters were green with algae, our water smelled bad and residue was left everywhere water sat. I’m hoping purer water will bring increased health benefits by reducing toxin intake orally and through skin absorption, and that I’ll see a reduction of skin irritation problems I’ve had for years. I’m very happy with the results so far, and wanted to let people know that with a little effort, research and careful consideration, this system can successfully be installed outside a modular home if need be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I installed our new system just over a week ago and immediately noticed a positive difference in the taste and clarity of our well water. Installation was a bit tricky but by taking my time and carefully planning things out I had little trouble. I am hoping that the system will prevent the ugly rust stains in the sinks and tubs - time will tell but so far all is positive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Water Quality We installed 2 Rhino Whole House Waters & Conditioners in our home to maximize water pressure for multiple bathrooms. Our main concerns were the chlorine smell of the water and a concern over PFOAs and other potential chemicals. Since installing the filters, our water tastes so much better and the chlorine smell is gone! I also had the water tested for PFOAs in a lab and the result came back with 0 PFOAs. Overall I'm very happy with the product. Also the customer service has been outstanding - their team is knowledgeable and not pushy or salesy. Highly recommend!

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%

Asked by: John tang
Hi john, I certainly did. I do my own vehicle, house and gun work; but in my case I would've had to build a loop to install the system. Took pros 2hrs just to build the piping. If you already have a system installed and thus dont need the plumbing, you could probably DYI it ..

Just had the system installed including the water conditioner. &nbsp;Now my water is CLOUDY! It was not cloudy before the install. &nbsp;How do I fix this?

Asked by: TJ H20
You have air in your lines. Fills clear glass and leave it on the counter for about 5 minutes.... I&rsquo;m certain when you come back, it will be clear(all the air bubbles will rise.) Once all of the air clears your lines, you should be fine... it won&rsquo;t hurt you and isn&rsquo;t harmful to drink. If it hasn&rsquo;t cleared up in a few days, check for leaks- call customer service or call your plumber... there may be other issues.
