This R.O water system generated a lot of hype after it was launched. So, when I finally decided to replace my old filter, I thought to try it out. It does its designated job, that’s removing contaminants from water, efficiently. But the capabilities of iSpring RCC7AK is much more than that. While conventional R.O water filters by default eliminate essential minerals from the water, this system takes a step further and reintroduces them to your drinking water. Keep reading to know more about everything that is great and not-so-great about this product.
- The unit contains an alkaline re-mineralization filter. When the water passes through its membrane after the reverse osmosis stage, it re-adds ionized minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium to the water. In this way, it ensures that the water you’re drinking has a proper balance of healthy minerals just like bottled mineral water.
- The 11-watt UV light feature removes pathogenic bacteria and fluoride from the water.
- The flow sensor helps to maintain a consistent water flow.
- The installation can be done without professional help if you have mounted a water treatment system before. It took me less than an hour so, yeah, that’s quite decent.
The water purified by this filter has to be the best I have never tasted, and I’m not even slightly exaggerating. The 6-stage filtration system makes it a great investment to ensure the best health for you and your family. If you live in a major industrial area like I do, you do understand the importance of having a good water purifier. I used a TDS (total dissolved solids) meter to test the output. Before using this product, it used to be around 700 parts per million and now it stays around 26-45 ppm. You can clearly understand the difference it makes. It saved me the money of buying gallons of packaged drinking per month.
Convenient DIY Installation
The filter system came with a plumbing kit, with pipes and all. I had all the necessary tools like wrench and Teflon tape present at my house so, I decided to set the thing up myself. The color coordinated tubings make the process even easier. In the beginning, while flushing the system for around 15 minutes, the TDS was 220 ppm. It freaked me out that time, but then it started going lower and stooped to 26 ppm after a while.
The European style brushed nickel faucet looks really cool in my kitchen. Although it might sound like an insignificant feature to some, people like me who are extremely fastidious about home décor are going to appreciate this big time.
You have to change the filters in every three months to ensure the best performance. While most other premium filters require filter replacement only twice a year, this could be slightly off-putting.
The Bottom Line
Despite being a little on the high-maintenance side, it is definitely worth the effort. The taste, hygiene and softness of the produced water leave no room for any complaint. If after reading all this, you think that it’s an expensive product, you’re certainly in for a pleasant surprise. With that, it’s a wrap, hope this review will help you make the right choice.
