Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I chose to have a licensed plumber install, I also purchased the in instillation kit. Everything went smoothly. The key for me was the plumber and the instillation kit. Very important was to follow instructions to flush filters completely, results were well worth the time. I did build a water shed for the unit, living in Arizona. The garage or basement is also desirable. After building and insulating the shed and fully wrapping the pipes I am very pleased with the quality of the filtration unit. The change in the quality of the water was instant. I came from the mid west and always had a salt water softner. I understand the difference today that slipperly isn't clean it is salt. The softner means as much as the descaler to the softner aspect. I don't have to have a separate filter for my drinking water to remove the salt that I used to put into my water to soften it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good After reading multiple reviews we made our purchase of the 1 million gallon system. I hired a plumber, a very good decision. I don't recommend doing this yourself unless you have the skill set. I don't see any pressure changes as some have suggested, not an issue. It will be interesting to see what the first filter change looks like as we are on a city based system. I also plan on testing our water to compare against the published results, expecting improvements. Thus far, very happy to know we have the filtration system in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removed VOC's We have a well and had to have it water tested when we had our house built. We tested for VOC's and Tricholoroethylene (TCE) and some other VOC's were found in our water. We researched the Aquasana and decided to give it a try. Once installed we sent a new test to the lab. It came back with NO voc's!! It even removed the TCE. We are VERY happy with this product and will probably test our water annually for TCE just to be safe - but it has done the job and gives us peace of mind! My only piece of advice is to save money on the "pro kit" besides the post filter, everything else that comes in the pro kit can be purchased at the hardware store and probably much cheaper. Otherwise - great product, thank you Aquasana for giving us peace of mind in our drinking water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Water Quality I live in an area where there are lots of chemical and petroleum companies and our water was not very tasteful. Our medical doctor suggested a whole house water filter system and I asked if he had a suggestion. He suggested Aquasana. I ordered it the same day. ordering was easy and installation was really quite simple. Now we enjoy a much better quality water for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Thanks Aquasana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system does what it says Great system does what it says I bought the whole house filtration system, descaler and UV filter (in sale). No way I could install it so plumber did it for $500. Note: He made sure I could access everything in my utility room to change filters, shut off water, etc. This was important and well worth it. He flushed out the tanks, which is necessary. Water tasted a little funny at first but diminished after a day. Seal on UV filter was loose, so it leaked for days until I discovered it. Plumber said all he did was insert the UV filter but didn’t check the seal as it was “factory setting.” Don’t know whose fault but he should have checked the seal in my opinion. Bottom line: extremely happy with system. No more chlorine smell or taste to the water! No more purchasing bottled water or salt for water softener. Well worth the investment (about $2k if you can get a deal). Wish I had done it sooner. PS water pressure did not change. Re installation - get a plumber to do it so that it’s done correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole House 600,000 Gallon Rhino Love it...family loves it! Purchased 600K Rhino. Water is clearly better right away. We are pulling from sink what we used to purchase in bottles, so this will pay for itself. Highly recommend, and it is really just like the great reviews I read. Installed myself. The most complicated part is figuring out how to tighten connections enough not to leak, but not so tight you strip connections. I had questions and their support team was awesome. I would definitely buy from Aquasana again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter, Enjoying Quality Water We received our filter by UPS and I installed it myself the next day. We are on city water that has been chlorinated. After installing the filter we are enjoying good clean water without the treated taste. After our showers our skin and hair is much softer. We wish we knew about Aquasana sooner. I would have purchased and installed one years ago. We will no longer be buying bottled water. May I also say that the sales person was real kind and helpful. Our son plans to buy Aquasana whole house filter for his family in the very near future.

Date published: 2018-02-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filters the water exceptionally well I read some negative reviews and my thought is that people need to know what they are getting into when they want to filter their water. It must be kept in mind that the recommended filter change period is very dependent on the water going through the filter. For the pre and post filters you can remove the filters and check them and if they are clean after 3 months then keep using them. They are filter traps only. For the main tank if you want to get the most use, add a water meter to the system you can buy a very good meter for $54 from Dwyer. This will give you exact gallon use and not leave you guessing when it is time to change the system main tanks. Our water was typical city water. not hard at all but tasted of chlorine and chemical and a red fungus would grown if you left water sitting in a bowl for a length of time (experiment only). There was also considerable muck in the filter screens at all of the faucets. We live in a new home in a affluent area so the water quality was by City standards very good. The Auquasana system made a huge difference in water quality, taste and even as they state, a noticeable difference in a hot shower with the steam and chlorine.I could not be happier. I will say i had limited space to install the system and it would have been a lot easier if in hired a plumber to do the work for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We noticed the difference and we are very happy We have been buying 5 gallon containers of drinking water for 30 years and a long time ago I got tired of stocking the water and then lifting the containers. I researched the options a couple of times and decided that Aquasana whole house water system is the best option. The recommended installer was knowledgeable, professional, easy to schedule and to work with. Our water from any tap in the house now tastes as good as the water we were buying in the containers. It feels great in the shower, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just works! We live in a beach community and have problems with municipal water all the time. Particularly in the summer when usage is very high. We purchased and installed the Rhino whole home filter and were pleasantly surprised with how the water improved dramatically in smell, taste and overall quality. Chlorine odor is gone. Taste is very close, if not the same as bottled water. Hoping with just two of us in the home, the 600,000 gallon system will last well beyond the advertised 6 years. Overall very pleased.

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?

    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%
