Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Water!! My drill well is 112' deep with an interior well pump. The water cames out 'clean' but there was always a rust ring on the tub and inside of toilet tank - if I didn't clean daily, the tub and toilet would be disgusting; it got so I put a cap full of bleach in toilet before I left for work for the day and sprayed tub and shower walls with a diluted bleach solution. What a chore especially with 2 teenagers (who eventually learned it was better to spray the tub after a shower instead of the evil eye from mom!) fast forward 14 years and 2 water heaters, 2 inside well pumps, 2 dishwashers and 2 washing machines later (none of which were cheap) I began the search for water filtration (and because there is no municipal water supply n my section of town) and I didn't want to add salt. Actually, as a busy working mom, I didn't want to 'add' anything to a system - I want it to be automatic! After a lot of research, Aquasana is the best choice for my system and lifestyle. A month before my Aquasana system was installed, I had to replace the water heater ($1800!), then, the well pump, which was colgged with a rust ring. Since the Aquasana installation, my appliances are more efficient and my hair and skin look better too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied with Rhino Whole House Well Water system After comparing options through extensive research, we had the Rhino Whole House Well Water filtration system installed in April 2018 by a plumber. It has worked well ever since. I don't understand some of the negative reviews here complaining about the cost of filters. Yes, filters cost. Yes, you need to replace them. That comes with the cost of home ownership. It's an investment in your family's health and in the longevity of your homes pipes and plumbing. Our well water has never smelled or had color or sediment either before installation of the system or after. When we first moved in, we had to shock the well twice due to coliform present in the water, and the water still had coliform present afterward according to the water analysis. So we installed the system. Now, with this system in place, we do regular testing of the water coming from the faucet, and it has been contaminant-free ever since installation. We are diligent about replacing the filters as prescribed. I would recommend the system. The only added bonus would be if the system had a counter showing the gallons of water it has already purified to help determine if the 5-year or the 500K gallons have been reached and the two large filters/tanks need replacing (since at this point, we're just guessing at our usage).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Water!! Love the new whole house filter! Major change in water quality! Super happy! Install was not too bad, lots of pre-planning in design and layout recommended to save repeat trips to the hardware store. Skip the Pro kit, get your own high quality ball valves and sharkbite hardware, paired with PEX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost 2 years old and still operating perfectly Have the whole house well system. They say it will last 500,000 gallons but for what we use that will be 20+ years. Madam wouldn't move in until water was cleaner. Not having to carry around 50 lbs bags of salt is a big bonus.

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%

User Q & A

We installed a whole house well water system 15 months ago (44,000 gallons). Now, the filter is so clogged that we are getting a very significant drop in water pressure. Is there a way to backwash or clean out any sediments in the filter?
