The Aquasana Whole House Water Filter is a filtration system which purifies the water in the entire home and removes microorganisms, chemicals, and sediment. It’s a great system for eco-friendly filtration.
This system features pre- and post- filters and sub-micron filtration, which makes it extremely effective in removing all kinds of unwanted particles from the water. This includes pesticides, herbicides, dirt, rust, silt, sediment, heavy metals, industrial solvents, and more. It’s a complete system for purifying all the water in your home and making it clean, healthy, and safe.
The Simplysoft salt-free water softener featured in this system softens water but doesn’t use chemicals or salt. This means it’s great for preventing scale formation, and protecting the pipes and plumbing of a home. Also, the system won’t negatively affect the environment because it doesn’t add excessive amounts of sodium into the communal water system.
But it gets even better:
This system also includes a UV Sterilight filter which uses UV light to eliminate 99% of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms like E. coli, giardia, and cryptosporidium from the water. The Aquasana system lasts for 10 years, or one million gallons and the package includes a pro installation kit. However, the kit doesn’t include PEX tubing.
All in all, the Aquasana system might seem like a great choice, but our research has shown some troubling potential cons. Although many users have reported that the system functions perfectly, many people also complain that the system starts leaking and malfunctioning around the 2-year mark. We’ve also uncovered that the company seems to be aware of the pitchers’ tendency to leak, but haven’t found a solution.
The system also sometimes causes water pressure to drop unexpectedly. The fittings and tubing is plastic, so it’s prone to leaking. Also, note that the filters need to be changed every two to three months.
Many users also have problems taking advantage of their warranty, with the company being unresponsive or dismissive when issues are brought up. Very bad customer service is often brought up by people who have installed the system. Also, the company will only warranty if the system is set up by a licensed plumber, and the cost of installation is usually around two-thirds of the cost of the system itself. This means that in reality, the total cost is even higher than anticipated.
Also, customers that use bleach while washing clothes or doing chores have reported that the Aquasana system turns their water brown when bleach is used. The installation of the system is fairly complicated, and although the installation kit and instructions are provided, a professional plumber might be needed.
So even though the system works perfectly for some users, and they have reported being very satisfied, our research shows that purchasing this system comes with its risks.
