Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and crystal clear water We bought this product 2 months ago for our home in the mountains. We have well water with a very high mineral content. While safe and drinkable, the water was always slightly cloudy and tan in color. I can say the water is clear and without color. The only side effect is after being away from home for a few weeks, the water was blue. After running the system and normal use for an hour the water returned to clear. We will watch it after our next trip away to see if it happens again. Customer service has not returned my call yet but this in no way means we wouldn’t buy it again. We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete whole house water filtration system. I read many reviews before I finally bought it for my daughter and son-in-law and two granddaughters. (Ages 4&7 now.) they use well water which leaves red streaks in the toilet bowl, clogged shower heads with calcium deposits, my daughter said she can drink the water right out of the faucets. She says her daughters and her hair felt cleaner. I paid a tidy sum to have the system installed by my professional plumbing contractor. I reminded my daughter to replace filters as required. I believe it was good investment for the health and welfare of my children and grandchildren.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A needed improvement! Let me preface this review by saying, "I hate plumbing!". Having said that, I found that installing the Pro Rhino was reasonably easy. The only problems I encountered dealt with not having enough room to install the unit like the picture and stopping minor leaks....otherwise a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasurring to have safe, filtered water We have had our system for several months. We live in the country and have farm fields around us. These farmers use Roundup and other sprays regularly. The European Union considers this a possible carcinogen. Our well water also has iron and sulfur. We bought and had professionally installed the well water system plus the filter for iron and the UV purifier. It is comforting to know that our water is safe to drink now. Our only concern is what I think is an overabundance of calcium in the water. When the water is heated in pans, coffee maker, even in the sinks and showers there is a white powdery residue left behind. It requires more frequent cleaning and I am concerned about the hot water pipes.

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 chlorine, 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, and the EQ-WELL-UV reduces >97% of chlorine for 500,000 gallons depending on water quality.

  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%

what is the cost per year to run the system

Asked by: DEEK
Thank you for your question. We of course can not speak as to the cost of your water bill as that is up to you. This system does not produce waste water though, so you should not see an increase in your water usage. The cost of filters will depend on what system and install kit you chose. You will need to change the pre filter every 2-3 months, the post filter every 6 months,and the UV once a year. So let&rsquo;s assume that you will need 6-8 pre filters, 2 post filters, and 1 UV bulb every year. MSRP + $4.99 shipping per order 4 pack of 10in pre filters- $19.95 4 pack of 20in pre filters- $29.95 1 post filter- $29.95 UV bulb- $120.00 We also offer a program called Water For Life: http://www.aquasana.com/water-for-life this program is not available online for whole home filters, but if you are interested, just give us a call at 866.662.6885 and we can get you set up. On this program, we would ship you 3 pre and 1 post filter every 6 months, and the UV once a year.

I have had a new well drilled and the water is ocean quality do you have a system that will remove that much salt.

Asked by: Phil
Thank you for your interest in Aquasana. Our filtration systems are specifically designed to leave healthy minerals in your water (calcium, magnesium, potassium). Since sodium is a mineral, this unfortunately that means that salt is not removed by a majority of our systems. That being said, we do manufacture a Reverse Osmosis system- http://www.aquasana.com/drinking-water-filter-systems/reverse-osmosis-claryum The RO system will strip your water of minerals, so it will take care of the sodium, and the last stage of filtration (the remineralizer) will add the good minerals back in. Please let us know if you have any other questions! Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support

I have arsnic, iron and maganize. I have a well. What do you recommend?

Asked by: Billebob82
Thank you for your interest in Aquasana! 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 reduces rust, sediment and silt and a .35 micron post filter to remove particulates 60 times smaller than the eye can see. For iron reduction, please contact our whole home specialists at 866.662.6885 and we can discuss your water quality to determine if our iron tank add on will be effective with your iron levels. For arsenic and manganese reduction, we would suggest our under counter Reverse Osmosis filtration system- http://www.aquasana.com/drinking-water-filter-systems/reverse-osmosis-claryum Thank you, Aquasana Customer Support
