REVERSE OSMOSIS WASTES ABOUT 4 TO 5 GALLONS OF WATER FOR EVERY DRINKABLE GALLON!!

I bought mine from costco many years ago and it's about the same type.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rev...advantages

"Household reverse osmosis units use a lot of water because they have low back pressure. As a result, they recover only 5 to 15% of the water entering the system. The remainder is discharged as waste water. Because waste water carries with it the rejected contaminants, methods to recover this water are not practical for household systems. Wastewater is typically connected to the house drains and will add to the load on the household septic system. A reverse osmosis unit delivering five gallons (19 L) of treated water per day may discharge between 20 and 90 gallons (75–340 L) of waste water per day.[23] This is having disastrous consequence for mega cities like Delhi where large-scale use of household R.O. devices has increased the total water demand of the already water parched National Capital Territory of India.[24]"

There are RO that doesn't waste any water, and it requires an electrical pump which pumps the waste water back for cycling...but those costs a bit more.

I didn't write this post to sell mine, but I have my RO system I haven't used for years and it's sitting in the basement for this very reason. If you want, I can sell you mine for $120! Barely used. I live in San Francisco. PM me.

We bought a two stage and couldn't be happier. My fresh water fish guppies and gold fish lives on this water, so if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me. This is a standard type filter so you won't be paying for expensive proprietary filters later, and also, you'll find these filters many years from now because it's standard. Just be sure to push in the tube all the way in.. there's a tube where you simply push in to lock it in place. If you don't, it's possible to flood your building! Read the reviews.

Could you please share the research you cite? I was unable to find any scientific or peer-reviewed data that show definitively that drinking purified water via reverse osmosis or distillation is bad for you. The only information I can find at all that backs this up are web pages put out by water filter companies who have a vested interest in people buying their product and not a cheap, reliable reverse osmosis system.

If you have actual studies, I would like to see them please. But again, only if they stand up to scientific scrutiny and have been reviewed by scientific peers. Anyone can claim that anything is bad for you. That doesn't make it true.

There are a lot of loose interpretations about what "pure" water is, but truly pure water is H2O - two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen. That's it. Nothing else...Not H2O plus minerals, plus chemicals, or plus anything else.
Pure water should be absolutely free of foreign particles, chemicals, minerals, bacteria, or other contaminants.

Is drinking distilled water dangerous?
Dr. Weil's Answer
"First of all, let me review for the record what distilled water is – it's water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water. The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be.
For reasons I don't understand, any number of myths, some quite extreme, have grown up over the years about distilled water. A quick Internet search will take you to sites that put forth such views as "distilled water leads to early death." Nonsense. One claim holds that distillation removes minerals as well as various contaminants from water. While it's true that distillation removes minerals as well as various contaminants from water, we don't know that the human body can readily absorb minerals from water. We get our minerals from food, not water. By one manufacturer's estimate, you would have to drink 676 eight-ounce glasses of tap water in Boston to reach the RDA for calcium.
Your question as to whether distilled water leaches minerals out of the body reflects another persistent myth. While pure water helps to remove minerals from the body that cells have eliminated or not used, it does not "leach" out minerals that have become part of your body's cell structure. Neither does distilled water cause your teeth to deteriorate, a false claim made by a filter manufacturer looking to boost sales. As far as acidity goes, distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body's acid/base balance.

Haven't heard of this brand but I bought 3 Apec Water Systems on Amazon for myself, my parent and the in law and all are very happy with the quality of the water. Apec Water System is made in the US.

I have this one and it works great. Honestly, I never changed any filter in 3 years and recently the sales guy who was pushing through homedepot and 25 gift card overpriced whole house system came to my house and tested water from the system as well and it was still perfect. We have fairly good city water though, maybe it helps it to last longer.

Do you have to hook this up with the faucet that's included or can it be hooked up to the faucet that's already in the kitchen. Reason I ask is we have a brand new house so don't want to add this extra spigot and have to drill a hole on the marble counters.

2 different lines and 2 different type of usage. The one provided in this system is 1/4" tubing for drinking, the typical kitchen faucet line is 1/2" line for general use with different connectors.

You will have to install the included spigot.

We were just talking about replacing our 10+yo WHER25 with something cheaper to run and more modern. Nice timing, thanks OP!

Same here. I have APEC and the TDS was better than commercial spring water.

Don't these systems waste something like three gallons for every one generated? Or possibly more?

usually none of these are made in the usa... they put up something misleading about "assembled in the usa".

it ends up being the same chinese parts just put together here.

here's apec from their website: "Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA." nothing to indicate they do any actual manufacturing of the parts themselves.

they do list this on their about page that the "We are one of the last manufacturers whose membranes and primary filters are all manufactured in the United States."

even a lot of that has fine print too and what part they are actually making. It still doesn't indicate they actually produce any part in the systems in the USA.

I have this but not sure how much it wastes. However, it beats having the whole house filtered! I just need good drinking water without having to go to the store. My area has hard water and this filters really well. I've had it for about 4 years and never changed the filters. The filters cost as much as a brand new system. I did buy backup filters, but probably won't need it for another 4 years or so. When the water slows down is when you should change it.
