RO water purifier
Reverse osmosis purification improves both the taste and quality of your water. It reduces up to 99% of the chlorine, as well as objectionable odors and sediment. Reverse osmosis water filtration also reduces the following hard water contaminants that may be present in your water: lead, copper, barium, chromium, mercury, sodium, cadmium, fluoride, nitrite, nitrate, and selenium.
This system hides away under your sink and puts healthy great-tasting water at your fingertips. It meets all your water quality needs at a fraction of the cost of bottled water; it costs just pennies a gallon to operate. Compare that to the price of bottled water! And you don't have to carry home those heavy bottles of water. Replaceable cartridges last up to 1 year or 1000 gallons.
The undercounter water purifying unit is easy to install (usually takes around 2 hours if you ve never installed one before). The system comes complete with a space-saving, 4-gallon storage tank and all the necessary fittings, including a long-reach chrome faucet. For cold water use only. Maximum water temperature is 100 degrees F. Maximum water pressure is 120 psi; minimum water pressure is 40 psi (if below 40 psi, a booster pump is needed; see model below that includes booster pump). Maximum Water Flow is 1 gallon per minute.
Not for use where water is microbiologically unsafe or with water of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the unit.
The filter unit measures 16"H x 15"L x 5.5"D and weighs 12 lbs.; tank is 15.25" high and 10.75" in diameter and weighs 9 lbs. Four of the filters should be replaced annually and come packaged conveniently in one kit (item 60477K, available below, includes filters for stages 1, 2, 3, and 5). The other filter, a thin film composite TFC membrane, should be replaced every 2-3 years (item 60443F available below). Filters and membranes are NSF listed to ensure high quality and performance.
The Water General reverse osmosis system is made in USA and is certified by the Water Quality Association for meeting S-300 performance, material, and construction standards. Two year mfg. warranty. All filters, hardware, and installation/instruction manual included (hardware includes feed water adapter, feed water valve, drain saddle valve, tank valve, and screws). Available separately: ice maker kit (order item 92106F below) connects the RO system to the ice maker of your refrigerator.
Information about the 5 stage process for those who like ALL of the details:
Stage 1 Sediment Pre-Filter: A pre-filter sediment cartridge is utilized, which because of the fine micron rating, is effective in removing dirt and sand particles.
Stage 2 Initial Carbon Pre-Filter: The high quality carbon pre-filter provides enhanced reduction of taste, odor, and color.
Stage 3 Secondary Carbon Pre-Filter: This secondary carbon pre-filter provides effective filtration and does not release carbon dust. It provides for improved membrane performance.
Stage 4 High Capacity Reverse Osmosis Membrane: A thin film composite (TFC) high quality membrane that can process up to 85 gallons per day.
Stage 5 Final Carbon Post-Filter: This filter provides final polishing of processed water leaving the storage tank. Improves taste of water.
