FAQ
Aquasana FAQs
1. 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 throughout your home.
We strongly recommend using a licensed plumber since they carry insurance to cover any damages caused by an installation error. This 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.
The Rhino® whole house water filter (1,000,000 Gallons) has a rated flow rate of 7 gallons per minute (gpm). True flow rate will vary with influent water pressure. Most homes use only 2 to 3 GPM the majority of the time.
We have whole house water filter options designed to suit your specific home and needs. Our Rhino® and Rhino® Chloramines systems are designed for homes with up to 2.5 bathrooms and with 4 people or fewer in residence. If you have a larger household or are seeking maximum performance, our Rhino® Max Flow and Rhino® Chloramines Max Flow are designed for homes with up to 6 bathrooms and up to 8 people in residence. For even larger homes (5,000 square feet, 3+ stories, 7+ bathrooms, and/or 9+ people) our knowledgeable Water Experts can build a custom system to accommodate you. For more information, call us at 866-662-6885.
City water is treated by municipalities to reduce bacteria, viruses, and common contamination sources. It's also regulated per the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) guidelines. Well water comes from an underground aquifer that is pumped into a home and is typically untreated. Well water may contain higher than average levels of iron or sulfur, or other contaminants.
The bottom tank contains activated carbon that reduces chlorine. The top tank includes Copper-Zinc (KDF) media that aids in the reduction of chlorine, extends the life of your system, and inhibits bacteria and algae growth.
The Rhino® is independently tested to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 to remove 97% of chlorine for 1,000,000 gallons or up to 10 years.
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, we offer the Rhino® Chloramines. This Whole House Filter features upgraded catalytic carbon media, which has a higher surface area to handle the aggressiveness of chloramine for longer than the standard whole house systems.
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.
After you install your whole house filter, you may notice your water is cloudy. Cloudy or white water is a result of air in the pipes. This trapped air is what causes the water to have a cloudy appearance. This is very common and not harmful. The trapped air in the pipes can take a week to a month to completely resolve.
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.
If you have iron in your water, you may need a specialized filter to tackle the problem. Please call one of our Water Experts at 866-662-6885 and we can help you select the right filter for your situation.
Because bacteria and viruses are more prevalent in homes that use well 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 sterilizes up to 99.99% of viruses and bacteria, and 99% cysts. For homes using city water, we offer the UV Filter as an add-on to our whole house filters that provides an added safeguard against these contaminants in the event of a "boil warning."
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% sanitization of both Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia.
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.
Aquasana's UV filters are independently tested to sterilize 99.99% of viruses and bacteria like E.coli, and 99% of chlorine-resistant cysts for peace of mind. UV filtration is more effective and more eco-friendly than chemical disinfection processes at sterlizing these contaminants.
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!
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.
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.
UV lamps have a powerful life of approximately 9,000 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. Additionally, the sleeve must be cleaned at least once a year.
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%
Hard water is a count of mineral content. It occurs when dissolved minerals clump together to produce scale that can harm your internal pipes, plumbing, and home appliances. 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+).
No, hard water does not mean water is contaminated. It is a measurement of mineral count present in your water. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard.
Hard water can be city water or well water meaning it may or may not be pre-treated. The minerals that make water "hard" are not considered contaminants, but hard water can still contain additional contaminants that are not safe for consumption.
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.
Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the 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.
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."
