10-Year, 1,000,000-Gallon Whole House Water Filter Overview
In the industry for years and known as one of the leading filtration company’s in Texas, Aquasana may not be a worldwide name but they have made a mark locally with their industry best products. Products available from the company are drinking water filters, shower water filters, whole house filters and powered filtration systems.
Their website shows the several awards they have won over the years, and their news feed is updated with some very interesting news around the world about water. It is one of the better feeds on a business website and deserves a look or two to get a whiff of the really big things happening around the world concerning water. There are always current promotions and they advertise heavily on social media, even having YouTube and Instagram pages.
For users new to water filtration there is a live healthy blog available along with water education pages that show consumers great tips on how to set things up. The filters produced by Aquasana are NSF certified and reduces up to 66 water contaminants. It’s a safe bet to go with this company, even if you don’t live in Texas.
It’s hard to ignore that this is a 10 year system that handles 1,000,000 gallons. A lot of people think that they made a mistake with the 0’s, but it is actually correct all the way through. Having the option to choose which kit works for you is also a great thing, since buyers can choose from the pro kit, salt-free softener+filter, salt free softener+ filter+ UV and optional chloramines filter and a 6 year filter system to make it a total of 16 years.
It’s everything that buyers need and more, all in one system that can be modified to whatever house it is installed in. These are not manual units, and everything is automated and does not require salt, electricity or even back flushing. The four filtration stages get rid of up to 97% chlorine and with the combination of a five micron pre filter it removes dirt, microscopic particles and rust.
Surprisingly it is lighter than other units, and weighs only 44.5 pounds with dimensions of 9x44x46. It won’t take up too much space and is light enough for one person to handle. Flow rate is a nice steady 7 GPM with a max PSI of 100.
Starting with the price, this is one of the most expensive water softener systems available, and that is with the base option selected. Going up and ladder to the different kits adds more onto the price, and that is not including the optional components.
The optional 6 year filter system to extend the life of the product can cost quite a lot, and in the situation where a buyer wants to have a backup just in case something happens to the main, that can end up being a lot of upfront costs. An alternative would be to keep a smaller portable water softener available, but that is too out of the way for the consumer to even consider. Although the unit is self-maintaining, it is advised to have a plumber do the initial installation as special tools may be needed.
Most consumers who have some minor experience with installation will be fine, but for others it really does pay to have a professional do the job since it will be in your house for 10+ years.
In terms of high price for value it would be most comparable to the Home Master HMF2SMGCC Whole House Two Stage Water Filtration System with Multi Gradient Sediment and Catalytic Carbon. It’s a beast like the reviewed product, but doesn’t have the built in longevity.
Where these two are similar is in their powerful water softening base great sizes that make them suitable for all households. The flow rate is also high with this one, at 10 GPM, beating out the reviewed unit.
Buyers should consider this purchase if they live in a large house, whether they are in Texas or not. Since the installation is a little more complicated than when using a salt based water softener, it is also advised to get this unit only if you have extensive plumbing experience or if you plan on using a professional to install it.
A maintenance free water softener that lasts up to 1 million gallons or 10 years is a pretty good feat, and with easy to attach upgrade and the multiple kits available it covers just about any situation that may arise. The unique styling doesn’t keep it from having a somewhat space saving design, and it will work well in many setups in order to maximize space.
A good working unit will last buyers just fine for that amount of time, but some more cautious users may want to stay away from this unless they plan on having the 6 year filter system available to replace it if something goes wrong. There has been nothing but glowing reviews for this product, and that is both locally and nationally.
Price Changes Since Release
This is one of those products where the price is going to stay the same year in and year out. The good thing about that is that you don’t have to worry about it going up, and that also includes the optional accessories. Everything tends to be a bit on the high side in terms of price, but that is due to how long the system lasts. Stock is steady and there is always a model available for shipping, so there won’t be any shortages anytime soon, or in the future.
Having a durable salt free system that works this well without needing manual settings from the buyer is a nice change up from what the market has been offering. Some may be afraid to commit to a Texas based distributor, but on more than one occasion they have proven that they’re a reliable company that can get the job done for years on end.
With their impressive line of models at consumer’s disposal there are a lot of options to choose from and bank on, specifically this wonderful model. Years of clean water await customers who make the choice, and all at a price that both sides can agree on.
