Answer

There are kitchen sink faucets out in the market that have an additional spout for a filtration faucet that can look into. As long as the connection point can connect to our 1/4" outer diameter tubing should be ok.

Answer

I can't definitively answer your question as you should probably contact the manufacturer for this question. However, given your 1 Liter per hour flow requirement, which for a 24 hour period would be about six gallons, and this system is capable of producing up to 50 gallons per day, I'm guessing that it should work. However, is this 1 liter per hour requirement a constant flow or all at one time per hour? There would have to be some kind of regulation that would hold pressure against the tank in order for the system to work. Perhaps it would work just fine with an extremely small drip that would equate to 1 liter per hour. That should provide enough back pressure to the system for it to work. Again though, I am only guessing and I would advise you to contact APEC and explain what you are doing to them.

Will home homedepo instal ?

Asked by Sooz April 10, 2021

Answers

Home Depot doesn't install anything. They have outside contractors to do some things. You would still have to pay the extra for them to do the work. If you can't install this yourself, which is what I did installing 2 of these, where I work, then you can hire a plumber to do the job or someone who does side work.

How big is the canister that holds the water ?

Asked by Sooz April 10, 2021
3
Answers

The canister, whole unit is large and takes up most of the space of area under the sink. We have personally not seen the advantages of this system. The water still looks cloudy and not fresh taste. Anyone or company know how to make this unit work correctly please let us know. Thank you!

Can I use a different water spicket ? I need one that is about one inch lower then yours?

Asked by Sooz April 10, 2021
2
Answers

I would think you could use another spicket. I'm not sure what types of spickets are available but you may have to alter the connection point of the new spicket to accomodate the APEC water line or cut the APEC water line and use a compression fitting that will match the other spicket.

Asked by Jasmine April 10, 2021
1
Answer

My guess is that you have an additional stage in your RO that replaces some healthy minerals and alkalinity for taste consideration. Many people prefer this and consider a slightly higher ph better for your health. I’m surprised that the normal ph level is 8.8 before the RO and suspect the calibration of your ph meter. I would take an independent ph measure. If you decide against the current situation, it is a simple thing to remove the last stage.

Answers

TDS-3 is a good cheap option. No, I have not noticed any degradation of my family's teeth or health since we've got one of these. We've had ours for 4 years now with 2 small children. This system's instructions show you to drain the wastewater in to your existing drain. However, I could see this being drained in to a tank that you could use to water plants, or mop your floors with it without issue.

Yes the storage tank will need to be used otherwise you will have very little pressure coming out the drinking water faucet.

Frankly, the best water purification I have bought. The water (tap water) went from 436 parts per million to 16. I have tested the water quality after 2 months and is still within the ranges where water tastes excellent 18PPM. I take this water everywhere with me road trip, and outdoors activities. I'm so glad this product is an American Made product more products should be made in our country. Also, the installation was very easy to do. I'm planning in the near future to connect a line to my fridge.

Best investment we've ever made!
Before we bought this, we had Rainsoft under the sink water filter and it was amazing. The only downside was that the yearly maintenance and membrane filter costs were too high. So we decided to buy this under the sink filter and it works just as well as Rainsoft but the filters are more affordable. The water comes out crystal clear and tastes delicious. So far there's no leaking and and my husband said the installation was easy. Definitely worth every penny!

So far so good, it delivers plenty of fresh water that taste awesome. Installation was very easy. A lot bigger than expected even though I read all the reviews, it does take up 75 percent of my space below the sink. Filters work great, water is clear no smell and the taste again is great. It always comes out of the faucet at a good speed too. Definitely worth the money!

The installation was straightforward and it took half an hour or so. The system works as described. Once pressurized, I could see water trickling through the tubes. Filled and emptied to purge, and then started to use. Got my first glass of drinking water in less than four hours after unpacking the box. All the tubes are long enough to place the system not right under the sink, but in the adjacent cabinet, which is much tidier.
by Alex
Pretty amazing
I bought this RO system to be installed in my kitchen remodel back in March 2020. It’s hooked up to a little spout by my sink. The readings in the photos are from today, January 2021 and the filters are still going strong. The green reading is from the RO system at 9ppm vs. my refrigerator with a filter that was just changed this month that reads 262... yikes. Glad to report that this is worth the money! No more wasteful plastic water bottles, no more drinking gross water from the fridge.
by amlinmn
I love this system
I just finished the installation this afternoon. Install was pretty easy and straight forward. I tested the water with a tds meter and it's doing what it's supposed to do. I will recommend this system to friends and family.

The installation of the filter took me a bit longer than expected because I ended up doing quite a bit of customization. The filter housing, plus the tank, were too large for the limited cabinet space under our sink, so I opted to install it in the basement directly under the sink. Be forewarned, if you have just an average amount of space in your under-sink cabinet, you may have issues getting it to fit. (We have a double-door setup, and the tank was too large to fit through either opening). I ended up building a cabinet and fastening it to the cinder block wall/foundation boards with screws and adhesive (see photos). I drilled a hole in the floor and inserted a 3/4" PEX tubing (to protect the 1/4" hoses) and fed the faucet hose and discharge hose through (the discharge hose runs up the PEX pipe to discharge just above the trap under the sink, while the faucet hose runs up the same PEX pipe to the faucet). Both hoses were just a bit short, so I had to purchase a couple of 1/4" brass coupling and some polyethylene hose. Make sure you purchase the polyethylene hose, not the vinyl! There is plenty of pressure in the system to force the water upwards from the basement. We flushed the system twice (instead of once as per the instructions), and then we were in business. The water tastes like water should - cool and crisp and clean! . . . so much better than the bottled "spring" water we have been lugging into the house case after case after case! It took a bit of time to get it all done, but again, I opted for the more "permanent" install. The only other issue I had was with one of the "O" washers in the middle filter. It seemed to be just a bit too large, and it did not seat well in the canister. The first time I turned on the water, it leaked from the cover on that filter canister. I shut the system down, removed the cover, centered the "O" washer as best as I could, and replaced and tightened the cover. It did not leak. Just be careful to make sure everything lines up well when you put the covers on these three filter canisters. The filter has only been in place for one day, but I can see that it is a quality product. Videos on YouTube and directions that came with the filter help to complete the install. Read carefully!

Replacement for Rainsoft Ultrefiner II
When I started doing maintenance on my Rainsoft Ultrefiner II I discovered that the proprietary filters are very expensive, so I ordered the whole ROES50 system for what it would have cost for the Rainsoft replacement filters & membrane. Installation was straight forward with good instructions. I also bought a set of one year replacement filters plus a two year set that includes the RO membrane, for less than half the cost of the two year set from Rainsoft. The water tastes great again with low TDS. Hint: I cut a 2" piece of 1/2" PVC pipe as a spacer and placed it between the sink backer plate and the washer & nut for the spigot. This saved many rotations of the nut in the cramped area under my sink. Two notes: 1) The RO membrane is damaged by chlorine in the water, so make sure that you replace the carbon filters regularly to protect the membrane. 2) Use an inexpensive Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) meter to monitor how well the membrane is working. No need to replace the membrane while it is still removing most of the dissolved solids.
