An excellent device for a very good price – simply put this is the Ecosoft 3 Stage Under Sink Water Filtration System. Suitable for your kitchen, RV home, office or even bathroom, it has the capacity to meet high demands regarding water filtration.
The Ecosoft system can well match against top under sink water filtration systems. Quality radiates from the safety materials used for the design – 100% BPA free and European Food Grade plastic. The 3 stages of super quality purification will save you up to 2600 water bottles for every 400 gallons.
The product is designed and manufactured in Germany and uses German-engineered technology.
The system works with 3 stages of filtration and removes up to 99% of harmful bacteria, metals, and impurities. At stage one, you have the 5-micron polypropylene sediment filter that restricts dust, rust, sand and other sediments larger than 5 microns rush into your water.
At stage two, you have the patented Ecomix D531 Filter. It serves for the reduction of salinity, chlorine, DBP or chlorination by-products and heavy metals such as lead, manganese, and iron.
The last stage is covered by the activated coconut-based carbon shell filter for the removal of any residual odors and tastes. Coconut shell filters are considered to have more advantages than the basic carbon filters. Keep in mind that fluoride, though, is not removed by this system. Thus, in the end, you have pure, healthy and tasty water for you and your family.
The water consumption and flow rate of this system are 0.25 GPM. The maximum pressure is 87 psi. In case the pressure goes above 72 psi a pressure reducing valve is recommended. The manufacturer recommends changing the cartridges every 12 months and the filters – every 6 months.
This product has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. So if you are not happy with it up to 30 days you can get the advantage of the no-question guarantee. It also has a 1-year full warranty and 5-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. That answers the question if the manufacturer stands by their product.
This set includes everything you need for installation. It comes with the following features – the filter module assembly with a set of 3 cartridges; a polished chrome faucet with a mounting kit; tubes (2 pcs); T-piece for connection to the water supply; ballcock of water supply, and a key for the filter housing.
Installation and maintenance
The installation instructions are maybe the only minor minus of this system. If you haven’t done that before, you might even need professional help. But if you have some experience and read through the manual carefully, you should manage it yourself in about 40 minutes.
Overall the system is compact and easy to install. You will need to drill a hole in the countertop or the sink for the faucet.
Note that it doesn’t come with the standard 3/4″ fittings. If your piping system is different, you will have to go to the local hardware store. But what is great here is that you’ll get a coupon from Ecosoft for the first order of replacement filters on their behalf. So it saves you the hassle with additional parts in some way.
