Customer Q&A
FAQ
Aquasana FAQs
1. What does "point of entry system" mean?
Point of entry means that the water filtration system is installed where the main water supply enters the home. This ensures that every tap in your home will deliver filtered water.
2. Do I need a licensed plumber to install a 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 will give you the security that the work was done properly and peace of mind in knowing that the installation is backed up by the plumbing company's insurance plan.
We strongly recommend hiring a licensed plumber to install your system as most professional plumbers carry insurance to cover any damages caused by installation error.
3. What is the flow rate of Aquasana whole house water filters?
All Aquasana Whole House Rhino® Filters are rated for 7 gallons per minute (gpm). True flow rate will vary with influent water pressure.
4. Will I experience a drop in water pressure after installing a whole house water filter?
A home that is less than 3,500 sq. ft. with 3.5 bathrooms or fewer should not experience any noticeable drops in pressure. For homes larger than this, our knowledgeable Customer Service Team can build a custom system to accommodate the water capacity of the home. For more information, call us at 877-996-2875.
5. What type of filtration media do you use in the Rhino® Chloramines system?
Both the top and bottom tanks contain 100% catalytic carbon for the reduction of chlorine, chloramines, and certain heavy metals. The media is also bacteriostatic, which means it prohibits bacteria and algae from growing or developing within the system.
6. What is chloramine and do your whole house filters remove it?
Chloramine is a disinfection agent comprised of chlorine and ammonia used as an alternative to chlorine in some city water treatment facilities. For customers with chloramine in their water, the Rhino® Chloramine features upgraded catalytic activated carbon media, which has a higher surface area to handle the aggressiveness of chloramine for longer than the standard whole house systems. To learn more about chloramine, click here.
7. Is there a difference between city water and well water?
City water is public water that has been treated by your city to rid it of contaminants and bacteria by treating it with fluoride, chlorine, or chloramine. All city water is regulated per the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) guidelines.
Well water is private water that comes from an underground aquifer on your home’s land. The water is pumped into your home and is usually untreated, which means the homeowner is responsible for the maintenance of the water. Some well water may have higher levels of iron, sulfur, and other contaminants.
8. What is hard water?
Hard water is water that contains dissolved minerals that have clumped together. This produces scale that can ultimately harm your home’s internal pipes, plumbing, and home appliances like your dishwasher. 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+).
9. Is hard water contaminated?
No, hard water is not always considered contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard.
10. Is it safe to drink hard water?
The minerals that make water “hard” are technically not contaminants. However, hard water can still contain additional harmful contaminants if it is not pre-treated before consumption.
11. What is soft water? How do I know if my home has soft water?
Soft water is water that has either been treated by a water softener or naturally contains less hard minerals. The most recognizable trait of "soft" water is how much more soap lathers, as opposed to hard water.  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.
12. Does softer water mean it is clean?
Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the water.
13. Can I drink soft water?
Yes, soft water is considered potable. Drinking water from a sodium-based softener increases your daily intake of sodium, which can lead to health problems in sodium-sensitive individuals. Please keep in mind that a water softener is not a water filter. A water softener does not remove contaminants present in your water.
14. What is a salt-based water softener?
A salt-based water softener is a softener system designed to remove/reduce calcium and magnesium from the water by exchanging it with sodium. This is done through an ion exchange process that alters the molecular structure of the calcium and magnesium from a divalent ion to a univalent ion, making the water "softer."
15. Do water softeners reduce chemical contamination?
Softeners do not remove chemical contamination. However, softeners sometimes have a carbon filter working in conjunction with the softener to treat contamination.
16. 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. Chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. To read more about KDF take a look here.
17. Do any of your whole house water filters remove calcium?
Our whole house filters do not remove calcium. To reduce hard mineral buildup, we recommend a whole house filter with a Salt-Free Water Conditioner.
18. Do I need to disinfect my water supply?
It is recommended to disinfect all water supplies that are not protected by a municipal water (city water) source.  By providing your own disinfection, you are ensuring the safety of your water supply for you and your family.
19. Do I need to disinfect my municipal water supply (city water)?
If you use water that comes from a municipal water supply and wish to provide your family with added peace of mind, a UV Filter acts as an added safeguard against bacteriologically contaminated water.
20. Do Whole House Water Filters remove bacteria or viruses?
Homes that use well water usually have higher levels of bacteria and viruses in their water. Our Rhino® Well Water with UV comes standard with an ultraviolet filter specifically designed to render bacteria and viruses inactive. The UV Filter safely sanitizes up to 99.99% of illness-causing organisms. For homes using city water, we offer the UV Filter as an add-on to the Whole House Filters. This will provide added protection against bacteria and viruses in the event of a “boil warning.”
21. Is UV filtration effective against protozoa such as cryptosporidium and giardia lamblia?
Yes, UV filtration is the best available technology proven to treat protozoan cysts. The levels required to inactivate these cysts are quite low: less than 10 mJ/cm2 for 99.9% sanitization of both Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia.
22. Does UV filtration render E. coli inactive?
E. coli requires a UV dose of 6-10 mJ/cm2 in order to render it inactive or sterilize by 99.99%. The Aquasana UV Filter delivers a minimum of 30 mJ/cm2.
23. How effective is UV filtration?
UV filtration typically offers a 4-log reduction (99.99% sanitization) for both bacteria and most viruses. UV filtration is more effective and more eco-friendly than chemical disinfection processes at destroying a wide range of viruses.
24. What are the costs associated with a UV filter?
UV filters are extremely economical to operate. A typical 10 gallon per minute (gpm) UV filter operates on the same power requirements as a 40-watt light bulb!
25. Will UV filters 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 while adding nothing to your water.
26. Should I shut my UV filter off when I am not using it?
No, the UV filter should be left on whether you are using water or not. The lamp ages 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 filter while the unit is off. However, if water is drained from your disinfection system, your UV filter must be switched off.
27. What is the maintenance upkeep for a UV filter?
UV lamps have a powerful life of approximately 9,000 hours. This 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. Additionally, the sleeve must be cleaned at least once a year.
28. Do I need to consider the quality of my water prior to the UV filter?
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 filters 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%
