Performance

Ecosoft 6th Stage Add-On Coconut Carbon Water Filter SystemThis is a 5-stage reverse osmosis system so expect it to supply you with never-ending healthy and absolutely pure water. It removes up to 99.8% of the harmful contaminants like bacteria and dissolved solids. From stage 1 to stage 4 different sediments are filtered one by one.

Beginning with silt, sand, rust, clay etc. up to odor and invisible particles. On the 5th stage, the taste of your water will be additionally improved by the activated coconut-based carbon filter. What is beneficial for this filter is that it removes dangerous chlorination, lead, and chlorine. Plenty of information regarding why an active carbon block filter is the smart choice can be found online.

Regarding the waste of water, the manufacturer states it will waste 3 gallons for every 1 gallon of drinking water. But that, actually, very much depends on your water – temperature, contamination and so on. In any case, don’t expect it to waste more than 4 gallons in the worst case.

Now, by all means, this system doesn’t need electricity to work. But if you have a pressure less than 20 PSI, then think about buying an ecosystem with an electric booster pump.

Features

This product comes completely assembled and ready to install. The package is organized well, so it won’t confuse you. And it is very compact. You get the system with its pressure tank and stylish faucet, the filters, Dow Filmtek membrane, tubes, washers, valves etc.

What is great is that only BPA Free and European Food Grade Plastic is used for the production of the kit. Parts are well crafted. In general, you should have no problems placing it by yourself under your kitchen sink, in the bathroom or in your villa.

Installation and maintenance

Your life will be easier with color-coded tubes and installation points. And the instructions are straightforward and easy to follow. The installation will take between 30 and 60 minutes. That depends on your plumbing skills, of course.

If you have doubts, though, just read the instructions and watch few videos first. You will most probably need to drill a small hole into the drain. You shouldn’t need to cut pipes. For 100% certainty, check the pictures provided by the manufacturer so you are prepared. Not every set up is the same.

Maintenance will not be hard and expensive. It is recommended to change the 3 pre-filters and 1 post filter once every 3 to 6 months. That really depends on your source – tap or well – and initial water quality. The membrane needs to be changed once about every 16 months. Again – that is may vary.  For your peace of mind, you have a great tech support and 1-year warranty.

  • USA NSF certified
