Overall: The Watts Reverse Osmosis 5 stage systems are well priced at $240.
This watts reverse osmosis water filter system has just about everything that you are looking for in a faucet water filter.
The five stages of filtration are one more than their traditional Watts Premier 4 stage reverse osmosis water filter.
The added one stage uses an extra pre-filter (3 pre-filters in total) to allow for almost 100% contaminant free water.
The Watts 5 stage filtration process includes three (3) pre-filters, one (1) reverse osmosis membrane and one (1) post filter.
The first pre-filter is a 5-micron sediment filter that is used to prevent any sediment form such as rust, dirt, and sand from clogging the membrane.
After the water passes through the first pre-filter, the water passes through a second pre-filter which is a 5-micron carbon based filter.
This filter removes chlorine and its by-products which most times results in bad taste and bad odour.
You will be glad to know that the third pre-filter is also a 5-micron carbon based filter.
This filter will remove any contaminant that the first two filters failed to remove.
By the time the water reaches the membrane, the water would have been half way filtered.
All three pre-filters make it much easier for the membrane to focus on the extremely small contaminants.
The pores of the membrane are so tiny that only clean filtered water passes through. Waste water is diverted away from the crystal clear water.
As a last stand of defense, there is a post filter that removes any contaminant that might have been picked up in the storage tank. By the time the water passes through your faucet, your water will be over 99% contaminant free.
When the water passes through all these filters, you can be assured that the Watts reverse osmosis filter will supply you with clean and filtered water.
Not many reverse osmosis filter systems have 4 stage systems and this Watts premier reverse osmosis water filter uses a 5 stage filtration.
When you use Watts reverse osmosis 5 stage system, you will produce water that will cost you less than 30 cents a gallon.
No bacteria, virus, chlorine, lead, mercury and many more.
Your water is guaranteed to look, smell and taste much better.
This professional installation may come at an added cost but it is well worth the price.
All reverse osmosis water filters will use a lot of water to produce one gallon of water and the Watts 5 stage water filter
is no different.
