      Q:How much time does it take to make one gallon of water? Does it have an auto switch for turning it off after a preset amount of water is filtered? Does the water taste sweet? Sweet as in like mineral bottled water?

      Answer This Question

      A:  I didn’t count time but working around kitchen, to make one gallon of water I think less than 30 minutes, not too long like distilled water. I never had mineral bottle water but compared distilled water I used to make over 20+years, water taste is clear, kind of crispy, not sweat at all to me & fresh clear taste that I like to drink plain water alone.

      A:  Dear Valued Customer, Our RO countertop systems are designed to produce one gallon of water in 15 minutes as long as you have good water pressure. Countertop systems does not have an auto shut off switch so you need to manually turn off the sink faucet when you ae done. Pure water taste from RO system is very fresh, good tasting, and crisp from our customer feedbacks. Best Regards, APEC Product Specialist

        Q:Roughly, how many gallons of water are the filters good for before I need to replace them?
        by|Apr 8, 2021
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Everyone's water quality varies so we do not have a gallon rating on the filters. On average you would change out the stages 1,2 pre-filters you change out every 6-8 months, stage 3 every 3-5 years and stage 4 every 6-12 month with normal water quality and usage. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us directly by calling 1-800-880-4808 or e-mailing us at info@apecwater.com. We are in the office from Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:30pm PST.

            I purchased this product after a quite serious search. I waited for a while to be sure about its quality and understand how much it meets the promises stated by the company. It is excellent. From day one it was great, easy to install and the taste was fantastic. I received it on time. Its case is pretty good. I already recommended to my friends.

              A good investment towards healthy life
              After moving to Arizona, I realized that the regular tap water is undrinkable even after you filter it with normal pitcher filttration system. So, my husband and I were looking for a quality filtration system and found the RO-CTOP-PHC Apec water filtration system. It was costly plus changing filters twice a year would make it more expensive. But after tasting the first glass of water after installing and filtering, we felt like- " Water should taste like this...everyday". Most impotantly, we like the four steps water filtration system and the added ph balance that this system add to the drinking water. We are happy with this product and we also liked the installation part since it was easy and simple.

                After rapidly running through a number of "cartridge in pitcher" type filters due to the high turbidity of my local water supply, decided to try this system after calculating it will save me money in the long run. It was incredibly easy to setup and the water quality is top notch, much better than the cartridge type filter system I had been using. Each morning I filter out a gallon of water into a pitcher which I then use throughout the day, this way I only have to go through the trouble of switching to the filter system one time a day, works out great.

                  It is a good product compare to most in the market for what it offers from the product description. The water taste fresh and odorless, same as what the manufacturer claims. The drinking water coming out from the filter is very slow so it is best to have it hook up to a counter top water dispenser. I bought a 2 gallons dispenser and regularly have it filled up and can be use by the whole family for fresh drinking water at anytime. The only downside I find is it is a bit costly compare to other alternatives in the market. It also does not work with a Pull Out Faucet so I had to replace my with a cheap standard faucet to use it. But overall I'm happy with it.

                  Great for apartments or camping. Easy installation, and product looks pleasing on the counter (w/ cover). TDS Meter will show you exactly what this system will do to the water you're putting in your body. The drinking water this produces surpasses what you'll find in bottled water. I would recommend purchasing a container for the refrigerator, and keep it topped off. Waiting for water for coffee is painful.

                    The APEC RO-CTOP-PHC countertop RO system is perfect for apartments or situations where you can't install a RO under sink system. The installation took just 5 mins, had to attach the connector to the faucet and run the water for 15 mins to flush out the membrane. Very positive experience with installation and water quality compared to my previous faucet filter from a major brand. The water tastes good. I recommend the model with the cover as it hides the filters behind the casing. Also if you prefer the mineral water taste go with the pH+ model.

                      A Real Winner!
                      I've been using this water system for about three weeks now, and I absolutely love it. I set it up the day I received it and have been very pleased with the way it works. It's a very easy set up, and fills up 4 quarts in about 10 minutes. I was quite surprised at how well it performed. For health reasons, I have to drink about 8-10 glasses of water daily, and I finally decided to purchase a reverse osmosis system. I've been spending way too much money on reverse osmosis bottled water because I can't drink filtered tap water due to the fluoride in it. The system doesn't take up much room on my countertop and with the case it looks good. The water taste great and is better than any of the bottled water I have been buying. I'm happy I purchased this system and feel a sense of freedom from not having to run to the store to pick up more bottled water. All in all, it's a wonderful system and is exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you, APEC, for a great product.

                      Life saver
                      Getting a five-gallon water bottle every other day became so cumbersome for us. I am glad we were able to find APEC which solved our water problem totally. It works perfectly giving us clean water for drinking and cooking.
