Of course if you google anything, you'll find some sort of claim backing your search, i.e. proof that the earth is flat, proof that we never landed on the moon, how wasteful are RO machines.

Please cite your sources, otherwise, you could either just be a Russian bot trying to influence slick dealers or someone who believes everything on their Facebook feed.

According to the APEC, this specific unit is 3:1. It's only "wasteful" if you think that paying for more water than you're to get decent drinkable water is wasteful. And if you want to talk about waste, what about all the plastic bottles? Less than 10% is recycled.

I have a different one that encloses the filters in a nicer looking case - I find the ROES-50 unsightly but if you have space under your kitchen sink, RO water tastes amazing.​ The stage 1-3 filters have to be changed every 3-6 months (depending on usage of course) and the RO membrane has to be changed every 1-2 years.

You need RO if you have hard water like in Las Vegas

I even cook with it

7 stage ones clean a little better, but I'm very happy with my 5 stage RO

I suggest checking eBay and keeping one on a favorites list or watch list then buying when eBay has it's 15 off coupon (frequently near the end of a quarter). it doesn't have to be this brand, just make sure it has legit certifications. I buy from expresswater but there are dozens of other systems that are fine

I bought this for my mom about 5 yrs ago, it's much better quality that the one I got from Lowe's and the filters aren't crazy expensive custom. Fantastic company super helpful support, call them and you will understand. I was ready to pay full price for this! Thank you

Just look up for how wasteful these RO machines are. In the best case scenario they dump 13 gallons of water down the drain in order to make 1 gallon of purified water.

I own this same exact RO and it is a great system. Before install I was getting about 280ppm from my city water. After installing this my ppm dropped to 5ppm. APEC is one of the best brands in my opinion.

I have owned this system for 3 yrs. Agree with all the comments except the water wastage. Fantastic customer support and the filters are not expensive especially when you find a good deal. As far as wasting water, I didnt see a huge waste. Water bills were pretty comparitive and was only $2-$3 more. Of course I only use it for drinking as I have a softener for my cooking bathroom etc.

Good deal and I paid a similar price. Ordered it for $199 and the price dropped to $175 or so I think. Called the company (not Newegg) and they refunded me the difference.

My only gripe is they certify with WQA. In most drinking water applications municipalities go direct to NSF. Why wouldn't they do that? GE and AQuasana all have NSF certifications.
