Description
Finerfilters 5 Stage Domestic Under Sink
Reverse Osmosis System with Diaphragm Booster Pump

 

Reverse Osmosis is a technology that is used to remove the large majority (98%+) of contaminants from water. The Reverse Osmosis system works by pushing the water under pressure through a number of increasingly smaller filters and finally through a semi-permeable membrane, essentially trapping all contaminants.

Finerfilters are here to support you before and long after you buy. We provide help through manuals, easy install guides, diagrams, phone & email support.

This system produces up to 190 litres per day of purified water and comes complete with:

A 3 US gallon pressurised storage tank holding 6.5 litres of RO filtered water.

Installation Manual.

Chrome Faucet Tap.

All pipes, pre-filters, post filters, and fittings required for easy Installation.

Booster Pump with high and low pressure switches.

The membrane can last between 1 and 2 years dependent on water hardness. Filters to be replaced every six months.

 

Please note:

This system requires a minimum of 29 PSI (2 BAR) to work.
A minimum of 29 PSI (2 bar) is required to operate the booster pump.
Ideal pressure depends upon incoming water temperature but around 60 PSI (4 BAR) is acceptable.


Reverse Osmosis Systems waste water to make water, and this should be done at a high pressure as the water is being forced through microscopic holes which catches contaminants. 

This is normal and the same with all RO systems as this is the way the membrane rejects the impure water, which goes to the drain, to produce the pure water.

The system works optimally at 80-90 PSI (5.5 – 6 bar), and to get to the quoted output, we’d recommend running the system on or around this pressure.

This allows the system to reduce the waste water to pure water ratio and work quicker at producing pure water.

As many people won’t have this mains pressure; pumped RO Systems or booster pumps can be purchased from us and added to the system which will increase the pressure output (a minimum of 29 PSI (2 bar) is required to operate the booster pump).
Please ensure that your incoming mains water pressure meets or exceeds this before purchasing.

Great 10/10.

Excellent price, bit rough around the edges
I bought this as it's vastly cheaper than the iSpring alertnative. Shipping was quick and once installed it does exactly what it says on the tin. I think it would benefit from better instructions. The A4 page was a bit vague in places and left a certain amount to the imagination. A bit more explanation of how the device works would also make it easier to understand how it should be put together. The other than was the the water connector was a bit average. I believe the 10mm pipe is a US standard and trying to adapt it onto British plumbing is a bit of a challenge. The adapter supplied for 15mm pipe came in no fewer than four parts and try as I might, I couldn't get the thing together without it leaking. In the end, I purchased a 15mm > washing machine (which I think is a 1/2 bsp) from Screwfix and used the supplied washing machine adapter to make a water tight connection. Worked perfectly, first time.
