The Aquatru reverse osmosis filter ticks all the boxes for me. It’s a state of the art countertop RO filter like no other. First up it was designed to filter out 74 contaminants! This includes removing lead, copper, arsenic, mercury, chlorine, arsenic, fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, disinfection byproducts, rocket/ jet fuel, prescription drug residue, plastic particles, and VOCs. Unlike many water filters on the market, it has all the certifications from NSF to prove it does so from 93⁒ to 99⁒ depending on the contaminant which is incredible. It’s a beautiful design delivering 4 liters of water in 12-15 minutes and does not require any plumbing. Unlike most RO filters it creates only 1/5 discard water. A digital readout tells you when your long-lasting filters need changing.
Uses a highly efficient RO technology which includes these 4 steps:
1. Mechanical Pre-Filter. This removes sediments and turbidity; filter needs changing ~6 months
2. Reverse Osmosis Pre-Filter: this removes more than 99% of chlorine and chloramine; filter needs changing ~6 months
3. Reverse Osmosis Membrane: This removes metallic ions, salts, viruses, pollutants, drugs, etc; filter needs changing ~2 years.
4. Activated Coconut Shell Carbon Filter: ‘Polishes’ the water and removes any remaining VOCs; filter needs changing ~1 year.
Replacement filters are also available for purchase. Certified test results for contaminant removal also available just ask!
