The Aquasana EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter Review

EQ-300This is a review of the Aquasana Rhino EQ-300 whole house water filter system. This deluxe unit has the highest certified rating of any home filtration system in North America. The Rhino has 3 distinct stages of filtration to assure you of the highest quality water in your home. It is manufactured exclusively by Aquasana, Inc of Fort Worth, Texas.

The EQ-300 has been on the market for over 12 years and has been evaluated extensively by NSF for more than 3 years. The NSF certification is a very comprehensive and extremely rigorous certification process that assures you of getting the highest quality water filtration system available. The company stands behind their products with a 100% 90 day total customer satisfaction money back guarantee.

Order NowWhen you purchase an EQ-300…

you will be getting the best whole house water filter on the market today which includes 3 distinct stages of filtration. The first stage is the pre-filter also known as the sediment filter to remove sediment from water. It will filter down to 5 microns so that the main filters don’t get clogged with sediment which will reduce both the water flow rate and the filters usable life considerably.

The second stage filter consists of KDF…

which is a blend of the elements copper and zinc. This will effectively remove iron from water, remove lead from water, and remove mercury from water. It will also remove chlorine from water, the bacterial disinfectant in all municipal water supplies. If your homes water has a rotten egg smell, it will remove that as well. This smell is produced by hydrogen sulfide. Another benefit of KDF is that it is bacteriostatic. Water filters are a great place for bacteria to grow and multiply so KDF is an essential component in the Rhino EQ-300. You can learn more about the benefits of KDF here.

The third and final filtering stage…

is a high-grade granular activated carbon (GAC) that will further reduce chlorine and odor. Activated carbon is also phenomenal at reducing and or removing 100’s of organic compounds and chemicals that are found in all metropolitan drinking water supplies. It will effectively remove THMS from water, remove VOC’s from water, and remove SOC’s from water. Learn more about the benefits of Granular Activated Carbon.

Another great benefit of the EQ-300 is its longevity

It is rated to last for 3 to 5 years, depending on the size of your family, and will process a minimum of 300,000 gallons of water before the main filters need to be replaced. It is also highly recommended that you replace the sediment pre-filter every 3 to 6 months to maintain the main filters life expectancy.

Also the EQ-300 has a flow rate of 8 gallons per minute

One unit will adequately handle a 3500 square foot home with 3 1/2 bathrooms with no noticeable drop in water pressure. This is especially important when there are 2 or more people using water in the house. There is nothing worse than the water pressure dropping to zero when you are trying to take a shower.

The Aquasana EQ-300 is 100% NSF Certified…

to standard 42. The EQ-300 whole house water filtration system has undergone 3 years of rigorous testing and is NSF certified to remove 99% of the chlorine from a minimum of 300,000 gallons of water. Why is this important? Without this certification unproven claims can be made about the performance of a water filter system.  Beware of filters that have only NSF “certified components”. This proves nothing about the design and performance of the entire system. The Aquasana Rhino EQ- 300 whole house filter has been NSF tested and certified as a complete system.

The Aquasana whole house water filter…

has a 90 day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. In order for the warranty to be in effect you must have the Rhino installed by a licensed plumber and provide verification of the installation.

The Drawbacks of the Aquasana EQ-300

When the Aquasana EQ-300 filtration media is spent the entire tank is replaced instead of just the filtration media in the tank. This is more costly compared to other whole house water filtration products  available on the market.

Consider though that each time you replace the main filtration tank on this unit you get a brand new 3 year warranty. You also get proper sequencing of the media in the tank to assure you of consistent water quality time after time. You will not get these benefits when you have to go through the messy process of replacing the filtering media yourself.

Is it worth the cost to you to have consistently healthy water year after year along with an ongoing extended warranty when you own an EQ300?

PostHeaderIcon Why Certification for a Whole House Filter is Important

Why NSF Certification For Not Just the Components But the Entire Whole House Filter is Essential

Purchasing a whole house filter for your home is a big investment.

NSF CertificationYou need to be completely sure that what you are buying will do exactly what the manufacturer or company claims it will do. The only way this can truly happen is through NSF certification of the entire whole house filter. Systems that have only NSF certified components are really open to question when it comes to claims made about any of their whole house water products. You need to know exactly what you are spending your hard-earned dollars on to make sure you are getting the best filtered water for your home and family. With NSF total system certification you will.

NSF –  The Most Demanding Certification

NSF certification is essentially the most demanding certification that a whole house filter company can achieve and will provide you with the best filtered water.

Order NowAs an alternative choice to merely running a one-time check, NSF has subjected the Aquasana Rhino EQ-300 whole house filter system to rigorous quality controls and continual inspections for 3 years. Spot inspections are also done on a regular basis for continued assurance of product quality and integrity.  This again is done on the entire system and not just the separate components. This guarantees that the system you purchase from us is as good as the one which was examined in NSF testing laboratories.

Water Quality Association Certification

There are lots of companies that belong to the Water Quality Association. This is merely a trade group allowing its members to say they have a certification. This certification does not fully comply with the highest standards set in the filtration industry. They do not ask for enough data from these whole house filter producers to assure valid performance claims.

Many whole house filter companies…

will declare they have “certified components” for their whole house water filters to keep away from the excessive cost of NSF testing. This only says that the carbon, KDF and different parts used inside their system had been individually certified.

“Certified components” on a non-standardized filtration system proves nothing about the design of the system such as the right quantity of the filtration media, correct water circulation through the media, the quality of the components used to assemble the system and the careful arrangement of the levels of the filtration media.

Be aware of this practice that is used throughout the industry on any low priced home water filtration systems that our competition is putting on the market. Why spend your hard earned money on an unproven reproduction of the Aquasana Rhino EQ-300 when you can own the real thing.

5. What is a typical whole house water filter installation cost?

That will depend on your area and what your local plumbers charge.

6. I’m looking for a whole house water filter for lead removal?

Order NowThe Aquasana EQ-300 uses KDF water filtration media to remove lead.

7. What is the best whole house filter location?

The best whole house  filter location is close to where your main water line comes into the home.

8. What is the filtration media used in the EQ-300 whole house water filter system?

The EQ-300 use a combination of coconut shell carbon and KDF 55 for systems that are on a municipal water supply.

9. What is required with for the whole house water filter maintenance?

There is a 5 micron sediment prefilter that is replaced every 3 months at a cost of $4 and the main tank is replaced every 3 to 5 years at a cost of $639.20 for the EQ-300.

10. Can the EQ-300 whole house filtration system be put outside?

Yes, as long as it is not subjected to freezing temperatures or direct sunlight.

11. What is the whole house water filter system cost per day?

On average it costs only about 50 cents a day to have healthy pure water flowing from every tap in your home.

12. Is the EQ-300 whole house filtration system self cleaning?

The way the system is designed it is in a continually state of backflushing to provide the highest rate of water contact with the filtration media. It does this without wasting any water.

13. Does the EQ-300 remove chloramine?

Our EQ-300-C whole house water filter system is designed to effectively remove chloramines.

14. What is the recommendation for homes that have well water?

If you’re on well water, before you buy anything, get your water tested so that we can design the right filter for you. We offer testing through a national testing lab. The cost is $180 for well water, but that cost is rebated to you instantly when you purchase an Aquasana EQ-300-Well Water Filter System.

Because well water is always different, we really like to custom tailor our whole house filters that are getting installed on a well. If you’ve got bacteria in your water, you would need to get an ultraviolet filter from us. If you’ve got uranium in your water, we would use a special ion-exchange filter, etc.

Without knowing what is in your water, we couldn’t possibly make the best recommendation for you, though we do make a generic well water system that utilizes 5 different filter medias and 6 different stages that will usually work for most water conditions.

15. What level of PSI are the whole house filter system and fittings rated for?

The EQ-300 Rhino is rated for a minimum pressure of 20 psi, not to exceed 100 psi, 60 to 80 psi being optimal.

16. Does the EQ-300 whole house filter decrease the level of water pressure?

One unit is sufficient for a home up to 3,500 square feet with up to 3 1/2 bathrooms with no loss in water pressure. If you have a larger home, you would need a second unit that would be installed in parallel. This doubles the capacity of the system.

17. Does the EQ-300 whole house water filter system remove fluoride?

The standard EQ-300  removal percentages would be theoretical because no performance certification has been established. We do, however, use activated carbon and mechanical filtration, both of which are known to effectively reduce fluoride. But keep in mind that our reduction is of TOTAL fluoride: mainly the hydrofluoro-silicic acid. We do this as a result of the isotope being of a heavier mass. The separation of isotopes is a process known as isotope fractionation, i.e. mechanical filtration. . We also have a specialized carbon that we upgrade the bottom tank to. It is the HA2 Supra media. This is great for the removal of heavy metals and greater than 90% of the fluoride while still taking care of the herbicides and pesticides (VOCs, SOCs, and THMs) as well.

FAQ From the Aquasana Website

1. What is the difference between city water and well water? — City water is pre-treated to make sure it is free of bacteria, viruses and common contamination sources. City water is regulated so that the contaminants regulated by the EPA fall within or below EPA guidelines. Well water is untreated water from an underground aquifer that is pumped into a house. Well water may contain higher than average levels of iron or sulfur, or other contaminants.

2. Why are whole house water filters considered point of entry systems? — The filtration system is installed at the point where the main water supply enters the home, delivering filtered water to all subsequent outlets.

3. What is hard water? — Hard water contains a higher than average amount of dissolved minerals (primarily calcium and magnesium), and a higher concentration of multivalent cations (Ca2+ and Mg2+).

4. Does having hard water mean it is contaminated? — No, hard water is more of a nuisance than a health issue, and is not considered contaminated. Most water sources in the USA are considered hard. Is hard water safe to drink? — Yes, hard water is healthy enough to drink.

5. What is soft water? — Having soft water means you have a lower concentration of dissolved minerals and multivalent cations in your water. The most recognizable trait of “soft” water is how much more soap lathers, as opposed to hard water, in which soap lathers less.

6. Does having soft water mean it is clean water? — Soft water does not mean clean water. Your water can be soft and still have contaminants present in the water. Soft water simple is a lower concentration of dissolved minerals and multivalent cations. Is it safe to drink? — Yes, soft water is considered potable as long as the water has not passed through a sodium-based water softener. Drinking water from a sodium-based softener increased your daily intake of sodium, which can lead to health problems in sodium-sensitive individuals.

7. What is a water softener? — A water softener is a system designed to remove/reduce calcium and magnesium from the water by exchanging it with sodium (or sometimes hydrogen or potassium). This is done through an ion exchange resin that alters the molecular structure of the calcium and magnesium from a divalent ion to a univalent ion, making the water “softer.” Do softeners reduce chemical contamination? — Softeners do not remove chemical contamination themselves, but softeners sometimes have a carbon filter working in conjunction with the softener to treat contamination.

8. What type of filtration mediums do you use in the top tank of the EQ-300? — The EQ-300 top tank contains a KDF-55 medium (A mixture of 55% copper and 45% zinc mineral alloy) for the reduction of chlorine and certain heavy metals*, as well as a crushed mineral filter stone to enhance the water’s pH and control scale* on internal plumbing. Both media are bacteriostatic*, which means they prohibit bacteria and algae from growing or developing within the system.

9. What type of filtration mediums do you use in the top tank of the EQ-300-WELL? — The EQ-300-WELL top tank contains a KDF-85 medium (A mixture of 85% copper and 15% zinc mineral alloy) for the reduction of chlorine, hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals like iron, as well as a crushed mineral filter stone to enhance the water’s pH and control scale on internal plumbing. Both media are bacteriostatic, which means they prohibit bacteria and algae from growing or developing within the system.

10. What is KDF? — KDF stands for kinetic degradation fluxion, which is a redox filtration medium. KDF uses a unique combination of copper and zinc that creates an electrochemical reaction. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, creating new, harmless molecules and compounds. Free chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Similarly, some heavy metals* such as copper*, lead*, mercury* and others, cling to the medium’s surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply.

11. What type of medium is used in the bottom tank of the EQ-300 — The EQ-300 bottom tank contains a carbonized coconut shell medium that reduces synthetic chemicals* and VOC’s*.

12. What type of medium is used in the bottom tank of the EQ-300-Well? — The EQ-300-WELL bottom tank contains a carbonized coconut shell & catalytic medium that reduces synthetic chemicals, hydrogen sulfide gasses and VOC’s.

13. What percentage of chlorine do Aquasana Whole Home Systems remove? And for how long? — The EQ-300 is certified by NSF International to reduce >97% of chlorine for 300,000 gallons.

14. Does either the EQ-300 or EQ-300-WELL remove calcium? — No. The KDF medium in the top tank of these systems change the structure of calcium into a form of calcium called aragonite, which has trouble sticking to the inner walls of plumbing and therefore reduces the possibility of scale buildup in plumbing.

15. What is the flow rate of the EQ-300? — All Aquasana Whole House Systems perform at 7 gallons per minute (gpm).

16. Will I experience a drop in water pressure after installing the EQ-300 or EQ-300-WELL? — As long as your home is less than 3500 sq. ft. and you have 3-1/2 bathrooms or fewer, you should not experience any noticeable drops in pressure. If you have a larger home, we can build a custom system to deal with the typical water capacity of your home.

17. What is chloramine, and does the EQ-300 remove it? — Chloramine is a disinfection agent used as an alternative to chlorine in some city water treatment facilities. They use chloramines for two big reasons: (1) chloramine is less reactive, so it does not create as many disinfection by-products as chlorine, and (2) chloramine is more persistent, and remains in the treated water through the distribution network all the way to the taps in the homes the treatment facility serves. The EQ-300 is certified for the removal of chlorine, and the process of removing chlorine is similar in most respects to the process used to remove chloramine. The key difference is that chloramine exhausts the standard activated carbon in the bottom tank of the unit quickly, making the EQ-300 a little less effective at removing it*. For customers with chloramine in their water, we upgrade the media in the bottom tank of the EQ-300 to a catalytic activated carbon, which has a higher surface point. This type of activated carbon is able to handle the aggressiveness of the chloramine for a longer period of time than the standard coconut shell carbon used in the bottom tank of the standard EQ-300. The part number for this system upgrade is EQ-300C, and it is available for purchase by calling the Aquasana Water Specialists at 866.662.6885.

18. Does the EQ-300 remove bacteria or viruses? — No, if you are concerned about bacteria or viruses in your water supply, we recommend that you add a 0.35-sub-micron post-filter and an ultraviolet light sanitation system after the EQ-300. The AQ-UV-20 ultraviolet light sanitation system uses ultra violet radiation to sanitize drinking water as it passes through the system, which changes the DNA structure of microbiological contaminants and some cysts. UV light radiation also prevents bacteria and viruses from reproducing, and microbiological contaminants cannot survive without constant reproduction.
Important Note: The AQ-UV-20 will not sanitize properly without a sub-micron filter. If sub-micron filter is not used before the UV system, microbiological contaminants can hide behind microscopic particulates, which will cause the UV radiation to lose its effectiveness. This is known as a shadowing effect. A 0.35-sub-micron filter must be used before the UV system to prevent the shadowing effect.

19. Does the EQ-300-WELL remove bacteria or viruses? — Yes, the EQ-300-WELL sanitizes the water with its AQ-UV-20 ultraviolet light sanitation system in the last stage of the unit setup. The AQ-UV-20 ultraviolet light sanitation system uses ultra violet radiation to sanitize drinking water as it passes through the system, which changes the DNA structure of microbiological contaminants and some cysts. UV light radiation also prevents bacteria and viruses from reproducing, and microbiological contaminants cannot survive without constant reproduction.
Important Note: The AQ-UV-20 will not sanitize properly without a sub-micron filter (which is included in the EQ-300-WELL setup). If sub-micron filter is not used before the UV system, microbiological contaminants can hide behind microscopic particulates, which will cause the UV radiation to lose its effectiveness. This is known as a shadowing effect. A 0.35-sub-micron filter must be used before the system to prevent the shadowing effect.

20. Do I need a licensed plumber to install the EQ-300 or EQ-300-WELL? — Yes, Aquasana recommends you have a licensed plumber install the system for you, to ensure that the system is installed properly. Since most licensed plumbers carry insurance to cover any damages caused by an installation error, having a licensed plumber install the system for you will give you the security that the work was done properly and that the installation is backed up by the plumbing company’s insurance plan. Not having the system installed by a licensed plumber will void the warranty of both the EQ-300 and EQ-300-WELL.

PostHeaderIcon A Practical Solution?

Why Putting in Separate Water Filters on All Your Residence’s Faucets May Not Be Sensible

Here’s a breakdown of the approximate prices to acquire individual water filter systems inside your own home to cover most unfiltered sources. We feel you’ll quickly see how unrealistic this is, and why a better solution to have healthy water is required if you wish to defend your entire residence:

  • Sink taps – Need no less than three counter top or under counter water filters to cover your kitchen and 2 different bathroom sinks. (Most US homes have at the least 2 bathrooms)  Approximate price: $100 each x 3 = $300
  • Showers – Estimate you’ll need not less than 2 shower filters for the two showers in the typical home. Approximate cost: $75 each x 2 = $150
  • Bathtubs – Identical estimate because the variety of showers within the common US home. Estimated cost: $50 each x 2 = $100
  • Refrigerator ice-maker and water spigot – Typically 1 refrigerator per home. However, some folks do have a second unit in the garage or elsewhere. Estimated value: $50 each x 1 = $50
  • Dishwasher and Washing Machine – One of each of these is typical for many American homes. Approximate value: $50 each x 2 = $100

If you add all of these sources of unfiltered water together, the estimated total comes to $700. And this doesn’t clear up other areas that haven’t been dealt with… like the chlorine vapors which may escape into the air from your toilets… and the sheer amount of labor necessary to put in and keep individual water filters. Each separate system would need to have the filter cartridges replaced on a regular basis also.

Some people would possibly decide to simply not use that second bath for cleaning up. But primarily based on 2008 census information, close to 3 people live in a typical household.   It might be pretty tough to avoid using that second bath. I think you might agree.

Whole House Water Filter

If you want to take that next step and shield your total home, I believe you see why we don’t advocate the individual water filter method as a practical way out.

 

For many years of trouble free, affordable healthy filtered water your best solution is to install the fully NSF certified EQ-300 whole house water filter system in your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars aquasana whole house water filter, March 4, 2012

By veteran

This review is from: Aquasana Whole House Water Filter System Rhino EQ-300 3yr 300,000 gallon

I have been researching whole house water filters for several years trying to determine what was the best solution for us. after reading the reviews on amazon i was able to make a decision that this would be our selection. we love it! the first thing i noticed was that our water no longer smelled like a swimming pool. the second thing i noticed was that after bathing our skin is not dried out, itching is gone, and our hair feels “smoother”(?). when we wash the dishes they are now, really, “squeaky” clean, the only time we ever experienced that was when someone came and gave us a demonstration of a very expensive water system we could not afford. i am looking forward to see how the plants respond to being watered with this new water since i have discovered, over the years, that the plants do better with rain water than they have with the city tap water. if i discover any additional insight or info i will pass it on in a future update.
i spoke with the service rep and determined that we did not need any of the options and we received the filter on time or a day ahead of schedule. if you are a really good handy man with good plumbing skills you can install this yourself. i opted for the plumber because i just did not have the time to install it, $250 parts and labor. it might cost you a little more but you will be happy with the water. we now have several people considering this filter for their home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior Whole House Water Filtration, June 6, 2011

By ELB 0591 “elb0591″ (Seattle, Wa USA)

This review is from: Aquasana House Water Filter System Rhino EQ-300

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, Highly Recommended, June 4, 2011

By R. Cox (east hampton, new york United States)

This review is from: Aquasana Whole Home Water Filtration System

Have had the system up and running for almost a year now, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! We live in an area with heavy sediment so I have 2 prefilters instead of 1 and I also have a Post filter. The prefilters and the 2 big blue tanks really get everything out because my post filter is always clean as a whistle.

We also have very low PH water (acidic) from our well, so we needed a soda ash system to balance the PH. This was the biggest difference to the “feel” of the water–makes it silky smooth, and MUCH BETTER FOR OUR HEALTH. Expensive, but worth every penny and then some.

We have so much sediment in our well water that we change the pre filters twice a month–mostly just to be on the safe side, and those filter replacements are not expensive–$5-10 each. Most people will probably not need to change filters that often, our area is known for lots of sediment in the well water.

Aquasana has top notch customer service. Our Plumber had not worked with threaded PVC before, so during installation he overtightened and caused a leak. Jesse at Aquasana rushed us new parts and was very helpful, even though we were quite angry at the time (at our plumber, but you know how it is….). MAKE SURE YOUR PLUMBER KNOWS TO LEAVE 2-3 THREADS SHOWING WHEN HE TIGHTENS THE THREADED PVC PARTS–VERY IMPORTANT! ASK AQUASANA IF ANY QUESTIONS, THEY ARE ON TOP OF IT.

As far as cost goes, I see that one reviewer is unhappy because his well system cost $200 more. I had the same situation, plus I had the low PH, so I had to pay an extra $1,000 on top of that (total cost around $2,000 plus $500 installation). I have looked into other systems, and they cost more and do less, that’s why I chose Aquasana.

Downside to this system is probably the upfront cost, and the maintenance. If you don’t have the acidic water, that will save you a lot vs. what I paid. As far as maintenance, you have to add soda ash to the tank periodically (monthly?) and change the pre-filter (1-2x a month?). But it’s easy to do (5-10 minutes), you can do it yourself, and any system will require maintenance of some sort.

Especially if you have a well, you need a good filtration system. Don’t skimp on your water quality! With the Aquasana system, we have the best quality water we have ever had in any house or apartment that we’ve lived in (I test our water with kits I buy online and locally–always excellent!). I drink the water without worrying about it at all. I do still drink bottled water when I’m working out in our home gym or when it’s more convenient, but it’s nice to know we have clean, pure well water coming out of our tap.

I have a 3500sq ft home with 3 baths and this thing is rated at 7gpm. I thought it would be a problem but it has been great.It did cost me about $500 to have it installed. The water tastes good. I would definitely recommend this product. Especially in Southern California where we were spending hundreds every month on bottled water.


5.0 out of 5 stars Aquasana EQ-300-HA2 Whole House Filter, May 24, 2011

By Cheri Silva (Tyler, TX, US)

I have been using my Aquasana EQ-300-HA2 whole house water filtration system for about 5 weeks. I am pleased beyond belief. The price was so reasonable for such quality. The water is pure, clean and tastes delicious. I noticed that the prefilter is already getting very dirty. No wonder our pipes get so much build-up and debris over the years. It’s hard to understand how the water district can charge for such filthy water. Also, one couldn’t ask for better Customer Service. It was excellent. If you are looking for the best whole-house water filtering system on the market today, with excellent customer service that stands behind their product, please go no further. This is it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Working flawlessly for two years, November 23, 2009

By  amazin-buyer (CA ,USA)

This review is from: EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter

I had the Rhino EQ-300 installed a couple of years ago and the unit has been working flawlessly ever since. The water taste is excellent. Our water is now odorless. I would recommend this product to anyone wants to improve their water quality. I follow the manufacturers recommendation to change the pre-unit Filter candles once every 6 months. This does seem necessary as there is quite a bit of muck that gets trapped by the pre-filter candles. Make sure you have spare o-rings and silicon grease when you buy the unit. Check to ensure that the pre-unit’s filter housing’s o-ring properly installed or else you could end up with a leak. My unit runs perfectly dry and drip free. While replacing the filter candles (every 6 months), you would need to turn off the inlet valve and turn on an the taps in you home ( only cold water taps!!) to empty the water pipes or else the back-pressure will prevent you from opening the filter unit. Even if you did manage to open it, you could end up with very wet floors! The unit is installed in my garage where my main water inlet was accessible. You may need to replace your pressure main valve just to ensure the input water pressure is not too high. You could loose some water pressure in your showers when you install the unit.

This review is from: EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter

this should be installed in every home. although care must be taken when assembling the plastic fittings (use plenty of teflon thread tape) to prevent leaking, once installed it is the best tasteless, colorless, odorless water i have ever poured into my gullet. no more itchiness when i finish showering. i had the water tested for chlorine a week after it was installed and the test showed zero parts per million. a great improvement would be to include all brass fittings, i would have gladly paid a bit more for them. overall i am quite happy with the water quality and would recommend this unit to anyone even slightly concerned about the the inherent problems of bottled H2O.


5.0 out of 5 stars great system for anyone with sensitive skin, August 2, 2009

By  melissa sheridan “melissa sheridan” (NJ/NY)

This review is from: EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter

My husband and I tried everything to help our newborn’s eczema. After spending much time and money on lotions, creams and medications, we decided to figure out the root cause of eczema/extremely dry and irritated skin. To make a long story short we called the water company and found out that amount of chlorine put in our water was at the highest levels deemed to be safe. We then started researching whole house water filtration systems and decided that the aquasana rhino eq-300 was the one for us. Within a week of installation our son’s skin cleared up entirely!!! We were elated, and upset at the same time to realize what was actually a loud to be put into our drinking water. We love the aquasana rhino eq-300!! The water taste superb and the whole family has noticed differences in their skin and hair from making the switch. It seems like such a small price to pay for such a huge investment in you and your families health.

This review is from: EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter

Our plumber made fun of us when we asked him to install this system a few years ago. A couple days later, he was bringing in bottles to fill because the water tasted so good. He subsequently installed one in his house.

There is great water pressure with this system, the water tastes amazing and we’re extending the lives of our appliances. Clothes don’t have to deal with all the mineral deposits, the water heater gets filtered water and there’s no occasional stinky smell in the shower.

Granted, for the price, I should be saying all this. You get what you pay for. This product delivers.

6 Reasons Why a Whole House Water Filter is Better

Whole House WaterMany times people ask why a whole house water filter is better…

The answers may surprise you. The health benefits may surprise you. Let’s look at why a whole house water filter is better.

The first reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is obviously water quality. With a whole house water filter you get the equivalent of high quality bottled water from any faucet in your home.

The second reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is, less waste going to landfills. That’s right, there are no plastic bottles, or jugs, to fill up the landfill. Even though this water is the equivalent of high quality bottled water, there is one thing that a whole house filter doesn’t have. Plastic water bottles. The main filter is certified to provide 300,000 (EQ-300) to 1,000,000 (EQ-1000) gallons of crystal clear water. That’s 2.4 to 7.5 million 16 ounce bottles of water, and no plastic bottles in the landfill!

Order NowThe third reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is thrift. Thrift as in thrifty. You will save a lot of money over buying bottled water.

Take all of those bottles that would have went to the landfill. Let’s round it to 2 million. Let’s say that we can buy a bottle of water for 10 cents. Come on, get up off of the floor, I’m serious. Let’s just say 10 cents a bottle, times 2 million. Let’s see that’s…..$240,000!? If you could buy bottled water at a penny a bottle, it’d still cost $24,000. That’s a pretty serious savings right there and a great reason why a whole house water filter is better.

The forth reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is that it filters ALL the water that enters your home. Not only do you get to drink high quality water, you are also protecting your family from parasites.

Across the country there have been outbreaks of Cryptosporidium and Giardia. In early 1993 Milwaukee was the site of one of the worst contaminations the US had seen, in many years. Over 400,000 people got sick form this outbreak. Some reports state that 100 people died from this outbreak of cryptosporidium. This was from a city water supply. Want to know why a whole house water filter is better? Just ask anyone in Milwaukee that had one in 1993.

The fifth reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is that it protects your largest investment, your home. A whole house water filter removes sediments that plug pipes. This sediment will also fill your water heater making it less efficient. A whole house water filter will also cut back on the scale build up on your expensive faucets, tub and shower walls.

Last, but not least, the sixth reason as to why a whole house water filter is better is that it protects you and your loved ones from dangers, that can’t be seen.

According to the US EPA, “Every home in America has an elevated level of chloroform gas present due to the vaporization of chlorine and other chemicals from tap and shower water.”

This is probably the most important reason for why a whole house water filter is better. If you remove the chlorine from your water, then your chloroform gas levels should drop. Chloroform gas vapors are suspected as causes of asthma, bronchitis as well as allergies. Maybe even cancer?

J Andelman, Professor of Water Chemistry, University of Pittsburgh – “The steamy air of a shower contains significant amounts of at least two cancer-causing chemicals that evaporate out of water.”

But that’s only part of the story. Did you realize that many experts suggest that you actually absorb as much, or more, chlorine through your skin, than you do when you drink chlorinated water?

American Journal of Public Health, May, 1984, Vol. 74, No. 5 – “We conclude that skin absorption of contaminants in drinking water has been underestimated and that ingestion may not constitute the sole or even primary route of exposure.”

U. S. News & World Report – 29 July 1991, Is your Water Safe – The Dangerous State of Your Water – “Ironically, even the Chlorine widely used to disinfect water produces Carcinogenic traces. Studies indicate the suspect chemicals can also be inhaled and absorbed through the skin during showering and bathing.”

THE WASHINGTON POST June 1994 – “The EPA has raised skin absorption of chlorine to its top 10 carcinogen watch list.”

Now if you still need to know why a whole house water filter is better,

then just turn on the TV news. It seems that every day someone is dying of cancer, or of some contamination. Protecting your loved ones is the bottom line. It’s what we all instinctively do. Clean, safe water is why a whole house water filter is better.

PostHeaderIcon Water Softening Systems – Are They Worth The Expense?

Water Softening Systems…

water softening systemsare another form of whole house water filter. They have been around for decades as a way to remove the hardness minerals calcium and magnesium from your water. Water Softening Systems take care of the calcium and magnesium by a method called ion exchange. A typical softener will have resin beads inside the main softening tank that will attract the hardness minerals. Once the resin beads are saturated with the minerals they need to be flushed away by a process called regeneration. That is why most softeners use salt.

With typical Water Softening Systems you will have a brine tank that will hold the salt. When regeneration needs to occur the resin beads holding the hardness minerals will be flushed with the brine solution and the calcium and magnesium will be replaced and washed away by the salt solution. Some water softeners do this with a mechanical timer that is set to automatically regenerate the softener once or twice a week. How often you set it to regenerate will depend on the size of your family.

The more sophisticated Water Softening Systems will use a computerized timer that is simple to program. You put in information like how many people are in your household; the grains of hardness in your water, and what time you want it to regenerate. It will automatically program when the water softener regenerates based on the information you’ve programmed in.

Water Softening Systems… are they worth their weight in salt?

Now that you understand how water softening systems work let’s take a look at what they do to the enviroment. The amount of salt that is discharged from water softening systems is considered toxic waste that cannot be taken care of by local water municipalities. It is so toxic that states are now banning the use of water softening systems.

You should also not drink water that comes from water softening systems because of the high sodium content. You would need to use a desalinating filter such as a reverse osmosis system to remove the excessive salt. With the reverse osmosis system you run into the problem of having acidic water. This acidic water will actually cause important minerals such as calcium to be leached from your body.

There is a far better way to take care of the hard water problem without using salt. The Aquasana EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter will give you the impression of soft water (but does not reduce hardness) without taking out the natural trace minerals or adding sodium back into the water. Also by adding a .35 micron post filter you will help reduce hardness levels while keeping the mineral content of your water balanced out without adding sodium.

The first stage of the Aquasana EQ-300 whole house water filtration system uses a 5 micron pre-filter designed to remove things like dirt sediment and debris up to 4 times smaller than the eye can see. In the second stage of the EQ-300 we use a media called KDF-55 which removes chlorine from the water, and also controls scaling in your plumbing and fixtures. There is an oxidation charge that happens as the water passes the KDF media changing the structure of the calcium into aragonite (basically changing calcium from a brick shape into a triangular shape) and preventing the calcium from sticking together.

This same media also removes heavy metals like lead, nickel, chromium, and mercury up to 99.99%. After these two stages of filtration, the water passes through a coconut shell carbon which reduces synthetic chemicals like VOC’s, SOC’s, pharmaceuticals, trihalomethane’s, etc…. to the highest levels possible leaving you with clean and healthy water.

Bottom line–no need for water softening systems!

PostHeaderIcon Whole House Water Filter – Why Should You Buy One?

Why Buy a Whole House Water Filtration System?

 House Water FilterIf you’ve been considering buying a whole house water filtration system you really should take closer a look at all of the benefits you and your family will receive from buying a whole house water filter for your home.

Water, it’s essential to life. We can’t go for more than two or three days without drinking it. In fact our bodies contain a large amount of this precious substance. Around seventy percent actually. So having good, clean, healthy water is vital to your health. And having a whole house water filtration system will give you exactly what a healthy body needs. Let me explain.

Thankfully in today’s modern world we have safe potable drinking water that is convenient and readily available everywhere. In fact it’s the law that municipalities use strong disinfectants to keep their water supply safe for public consumption.  With the introduction of chlorine, chloramines, and bromine we have H2O that is free of pathogenic diseases that were once a threat to human health. But with the introduction of these chemicals a new host of issues were introduced.


“EPA research has found thousands of toxic chemicals in local drinking water supplies. Solve the problem and improve your health today with your own whole house water filtration system. Click here for the best solution available today.”


When disinfecting chemicals like chlorine and bromine were introduced, new chemical substances were formed. These chemicals, called trihalomethanes, are created by a chemical reaction when the disinfectants and the decaying organic matter that are found in lakes, streams, and rivers combine. Organic matter like leaves, grass, lumber, and dead fish. Trihalomethanes are toxic chemicals and known carcinogens. On one hand several problems are solved with chlorine and the like. On the other hand serious problems are also created.

There is a simple solution to these abundant and toxic chemicals. An almost miraculous substance called granular activated carbon works instantly when it comes in contact with toxic impurities. It is especially effective in removing the disinfecting chemicals like chlorine and bromine. It also removes hundreds of other toxic chemicals that EPA research has shown to be prevalent in many cities across the country.

Granular activated carbon is one of the main ingredients in a whole house water filtration system.

Now you’re probably wondering why you need to purchase a large unit, like a whole house water filter system, that takes care of your entire home. Why not just buy a small counter top unit for your drinking water. That’s a good point we’re going to address.

The largest organ on your body is your skin. It is very porous. Your skin absorbs substances very readily and easily. So when you bathe or take a shower your skin will absorb the chemical disinfectants. Not only that, some of the trihalomethanes are very volatile and will vaporize into the air for you to breath. A whole house water filtration system connected to your homes main water supply will eliminate all of this from ever happening.

Buying a whole house water filtration system…

for your home will give you and your family the strong sense of health and safety you deserve. Not only will you have water that tastes clean, pure, and refreshing, it will be much healthier for you too. All of the beverages you make with it like coffee, tea, and juice will taste far better also. Plus you will have the added benefits of softer skin and smoother hair when you  bathe. Doesn’t buying a whole house water filtration system make sense today?
