Product's Review
    1. Good service!! Review by Charlie Rogers
      Satisfaction

      It is an awesome filtration system. APEC customer service is awesome. The permeate pump makes too much noises, I called their customer service and they help me found the issue and now the systems works near silent. My tap water ppm before filtration was 513 ppm, after installing the system, it went down to 39 ppm (Posted on 5/17/2016)

    2. Installed it myself Review by Mark T
      Satisfaction

      Thanks for a really nice product. I have well water and used bottled water - but I really was bothered with all that plastic going in the recycle bin week after week - so, I ordered and installed the RO Perm system. If you are patient, you should not have a problem installing the system. The instructions are accurate. I am lucky in that my laundry room is directly below the kitchen - so, I simply ordered a bit of extra tubing to feed to the faucet and was able to have the entire unit in the room below (mounted on the wall of the laundry room.) The water is great. My well water TDS readings are from 1100 to 1200 PPM. The RO water TDS readings range from 085 to 118 PPM. Not sure why I don't have even lower readings but they are good and the water tastes great. Overall, very pleased. Customer Service is great and the product is well made. (Posted on 3/28/2016)

    3. For lower water pressure Review by Arthur Collins
      Satisfaction

      This system works well in our low water pressure house. It greatly improved the taste of my water. The quality of the city water and well water declined significantly, my dishwasher filter needs to be cleaned weekly before I installed this system. I am happy with this purchase. (Posted on 2/18/2016)

    4. 12PPM Review by David T
      Satisfaction

      It was very easy to install, just read the instruction manual and follow the step while you install this system. It’s good to know where each hose will be located first so you can have an idea where to put the parts and tanks before actually installing the system. The system works great and the pressure is fantastic.It is very efficient at removing TDS.(From 343 to 12 PPM) (Posted on 1/29/2016)

    5. Saying goodbye to bottled water Review by Donald
      Satisfaction

      My wife and I bought our home 8 years ago and it has a private well. From day one we never drank the water because we did not trust it. We have been buying spring water this whole time for drinking and cooking, not that there is any guarantee that spring water is any better than my well water because that industry is not regulated at all. The last time I had the well water tested by a lab, I was told that my arsenic level was right on the standards line for that year and it would be above the standards line the following year because the government standard was being reduced after that year. Unfortunately I cannot find that last report so I cannot quote numbers, but no matter because now after installing my RO system I bought from freedrinkingwater.com, when I tested the RO water my arsenic level was reported < 2ug/L ppb which is well below the 10 ug/L ppb standard now set.

      When I bought my system I got a free water tester that tests the TDS in the water. I had a little fun with this and tested my well water, the water from my RO system, and water from a bottle of Poland Spring. My results follow: My well water: 245ppm, Poland Spring Water: 22ppm, From my RO system: 15ppm (94% reduction from my well water) The system I bought, a couple of weeks before Christmas, is the RO-PERM system and I had the company add the UV light as a sixth stage to my system because I am paranoid about the well water quality and the extra $135 is a small price to pay for peace of mind. This RO system is by far the best I found. I have been researching them for quite sometime now and never bought one because the companies I found that were selling them did not offer what I deemed as required by my research in an RO system. No more buying 10 to 15 gallons of spring water a week for my family and me. (Posted on 1/21/2016)

    6. Easy to change filters Review by David Klawiter
      Satisfaction

      I have had my system installed long enough to need to change the RO filter for the first time, and continue to be very pleased with the quality of the water. I installed my system in the basement and split the output to feed both my kitchen sink, and my ice maker. It makes marvelous ice cubes that are crystal clear. It also makes it very easy to access when changing filters. You will enjoy this system once you put it in. (Posted on 12/29/2015)

    7. The tank fills every quickly and our nasty tap water tastes great. Review by Lawrence Cook
      Satisfaction

      The tank fills every quickly and our nasty tap water tastes great. We upgraded the faucet to another one we found on Amazon as this one was too basic. Our plumber helped us to install this system and there were no problems so far. I had this system installed for about 6 months now. (Posted on 12/4/2015)

    8. This system is great for low water pressure home. Review by Willie Bell
      Satisfaction

      I love this system since my home has low water pressure. I am glad I bought it. It did increase the delivery pressure at faucet and it fills the tank really fast. Also it does not need electricity to run. I love it.

      PS: It was very easy to install and water taste is the best.

    9. product works great Review by Steve
      Satisfaction

      This product works great. The installation was easy with very detailed instructions. The water flow rate is better than I expected. The water coming out of the system is pure and taste great. We couldn't be happier. I would recommend this R.O. system to anybody. It far exceeds the other R.O. system that I replaced. (Posted on 10/2/2015)

    10. Excellent water tastes Review by DKS
      Satisfaction

      The installation was easy and good water pressure with the pump. My family and I are drinking more water now, and we absolutely enjoy the taste of it! The pump is a bit noisy though. Otherwise great.

    11. works great and the water taste great Review by Ana
      Satisfaction

      We had one of these in our previous house. When we moved to Montana I really wanted another great system like this. Since we have low water pressure we got the RO-PERM which also works great and the water taste great. (Posted on 8/21/2015)

    12. best investment Review by Pamela Ramirez
      Satisfaction

      The quality of this unit exceeds my expectations. The three pre-filters need to be replaced once a year using APEC branded filter. The inline filter needs to be replaced every 3-5 years. The TDS reading was 561 and now is 32. (Posted on 7/30/2015)

    13. I called the tech support of the APEC and they are very friendly Review by Wayne Carter
      Satisfaction

      I just finished installing my RO-PERM system and I am very happy. It took me about two hours since I have no experience in installing such machine like this and I wanted to make sure that all steps are correct.

      I did some research on the water filtration system and lots of people recommend me the Apec water system, so I decided to purchase one for a try. I called their customer service and they recommended me with this perm system, which works really good and it exceeds my expectation and the water tastes the same as the bottle water that purchased from stores.

    14. Good system!! Review by Albert Murphy
      Satisfaction

      This system satisfies everyday needs of my family. I asked a plumber to install it. It took him about 30 minutes. It works great and plus it is made in America. We tasted the water after installed it and the water tastes so good. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 6/9/2015)

    15. Good for low water pressure Review by Dan Monigold
      Satisfaction

      The RO-PERM system is simply amazing. My house water pressure measures around 35 psi. Due to the low pressure I have had trouble with other RO filters producing enough water. The RO-PERM system completely eliminated the pressure problem. Using the free gift TDS meter my source water measured at 376! The RO-PERM filter reduces the TDS amount to 13!! It is great to know that I now have clean and healthy drinking water and ice for my family, dog, and aquarium!! (Posted on 6/7/2015)

    16. I can't believe how much better the water is now! Review by Mark Koester
      Satisfaction

      I installed the RO system last Saturday. I can't believe how much better the water is now! I always thought city was good, but now I have "bottled water" quality drinking water. This summer when the City of Toledo's drinking water goes bad from microcystines, my family will be safe. The ice cubes are crystal clear (so is the water) and the permeate pump gives me more pressure at the ice maker than I had using City water. My wife commented on how nice the brushed nickel faucet looks at the sink and how it matches the normal spout. All the parts needed for installation were included-I didn't have to make any trips to the local big box store.

      Thanks-and I will be recommending APEC to my friends.

    17. Great system! Highly recommend it. Review by Harold Reed
      Satisfaction

      I couldn’t be happier with my purchase of this system. This is the only system that I have seen that has this type of technology that enhances the performance of low pressure installation. I only have about 35 psi water pressure and no electrical outlet nearby. So I ordered this system and installed it yesterday. It looks fantastic and performs perfectly. I was impressed that the TDS meter was included in the package while I purchased this system. My tap water was 150 ppm and now down to 20 ppm. Great system! Highly recommend it.

    18. Installed it with no problem. Water tastes great now. Great product! Review by Catherine Watson
      Satisfaction

      I did a lot of research before buying this. I love it. It is a great product and both the U.S.quality of the build and ease of installation with no leaks was a pleasant surprise. Follow the instruction in sequence can help you to install the system easily. I installed this system in the basement. The company sent extra tubing for the tank and waste water at no charge. The permeate pump does make some noise but only after you use water. It is well worth it since it increased efficiency.

      As for the water, the water has the best taste. Our TDS meter shows that our kitchen sink went from 669 ppm to 51 ppm. Now the water tastes incredibly fresh and pure.

      I am very happy with my purchase and I highly recommend it.

    19. We have better tasting water delivered at greater pressure now. Review by Jeremy Cox
      Satisfaction

      The system has been working 6 weeks now. So far no leaking and no other problems I was surprised by the difference in water taste after installed the system. The system was also easy to install which the quick fit connectors. I put the filter under the sink and I also hooked this up to the ice maker. It has plenty of pressure to run the ice maker. I am very happy with the purchase.

      Awesome RO system that is made in the USA! My husband installed it within a couple of hours. We used this for our drinking water for a few months now and it is very health since it removes all the contaminants from the water. (Posted on 6/19/2014)

    21. Really Nice RO System Review by Gene3
      Satisfaction

      Bought an APEC RO-PERM system for use in a recently purchased cottage on a small lake in New Hampshire. Previous owners used lake water for showers, dishes, etc. Drinking water had to be hauled in. Decided on APEC after considerable research. Impressed by all the positive reviews and value/price. Ordering was simple. Shipped quickly and received in perfect condition. Installation was easy thanks to concise and well organized manual (full color photos and illustrations!). System works exactly as advertised. Plenty of pressure and ample supply of drinking water. Quality of system components is obvious and top notch.

      Note: Installed a pair of standard whole house canister filters in water line post cottage's pressure tank and pre APEC system. Hope this additional filtration will extend life of the RO filters. Can't hurt and didn't cost much. (Posted on 5/21/2014)

    22. This is made in USA product and it produces pure water. Review by Judith Sanders
      Satisfaction

      I purchased this system about four years ago. I have not had a problem with it. No leaks so far but the permeate pump is noisy when working. The water tastes absolutely tasteless the way water should! Also, the water is so clean that it will keep my coffee maker and ice maker clean. We don’t have to buy any bottle water anymore and I feel healthier when drinking water.

      Btw, the RO Perm offers a very nice water pressure with no electrical requirements. (Posted on 3/19/2014)

    23. Very pleased with my purchase Review by Darwin Fisher
      Satisfaction

      We previously had an RO system (Not APEC) that started leaking on us about a year ago. I ended up removing the system and we went about a year without RO water. After a year we were ready for good clear clean water again. I started investigating several systems and quickly became impressed with APEC. APEC's customer service was great in answering my questions both over the phone and online chat, and was quick in helping me decide on what model I needed. I ended up waiting until Christmas to order, so that I could take advantage of the Christmas sale. I was told the best system for my set up was the RO-PERM for the following reasons. 1) We live in the country and have well water. 2) I was wanting to put the RO system in my basement mechanical room instead of under the sink to save space under the sink. When the system arrived it was very well packaged with all the supplies I needed. The set up and installation was very easy.

      I ended up installing the system about 40' from my sink and then just ran a line to my sink and also to the refrigerator. Even with that much distance we still have good pressure from the system at both locations. I have a family of 6 and the system is able to keep up even with the small tank. I am very impressed with the system and the quality. I will note if you are looking into the RO-PERM system it does make a little noise when it is filtering water, so I am glad it is in the mechanical room.

      As far as quality of water.....it is crystal clear. As my wife says "no floaties in my water now!" I used the tester that came with the system and tested our home well water which has a whole house filter on it at 340ppm. I then tested our refrigerator's "filtered" water and it tested at 220 ppm. The last time I tested the water from the RO system it was at 22 ppm. That's amazing to me. Again, thanks for all the great customer service and a great product. We are really enjoying the clear clean water! (Posted on 1/30/2014)

    24. High quality product Review by Ryan Cook
      Satisfaction

      Just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with our new RO-Perm system. I ordered one to replace my Kinetico system which was ten years old, and the installation could not have gone any smoother. I'm blown away with how easy this system was to install (I'm not the handiest) and how well it seems to be functioning.

      I would highly recommend your systems to anyone who is thinking about adding a system at home. I looked at all the major systems and yours is by far the most cost effective that I could locate. Thanks again for making such a good solid product. (Posted on 6/22/2013)

    25. A customer for life! Review by Brandon J.
      Satisfaction

      I have well water and a salt based water softener system. The water wasn't horrible, but I wanted cleaner and safer drinking water for my family. I researched different systems for a couple weeks. Every time I reviewed what I had found the APEC systems were always the best when you considered the quality of the system components, the ease of installation, and the potential for simple future maintenance and repair. I went with the RO-PERM system, upgraded to the 14 gallon tank, added 2 ice maker kits (one to connect my ice maker, one for my instant hot), ordered extra water line for connecting all three outlets, and upgraded the faucet to a model that matched my kitchen. The system is installed on a board attached to the a beam in my basement and each of the outlets (ice maker, instant hot & faucet) range from 15 to 20 feet from that location. Water pressure at each source is fantastic, especially at the faucet which is the farthest away!

      I'm considering adding a faucet in the upstairs bathroom for the kids to use because I'm so confident it would have enough pressure to operate even after going 20 feet UP to that location. With the 14 gallon storage tank I never run out of water, even when I use it for the water I home brew beer with on the weekends. I can't be sure that the water made all the difference, but I think that my last batch was the best beer I've ever made, and water is truly the main component of any beverage! Having clean ice and water is something that I enjoy so much, and our whole family is so happy to have our RO system installed. Thanks for making such great systems! INSTALLATION TIP: The nail based or adhesive Clips for coaxial/TV cable that you can buy at a hardware store work great for holding the water lines in place. (Posted on 4/23/2013)

    26. Clear instructions Review by Sara Pastryk
      Satisfaction

      I recently purchased the RO-PERM reverse osmosis system. I have 3 young boys and I want to make sure I am giving them the cleanest drinking water I can. After much research, I decided on a reverse osmosis system from APEC water due to the high quality of your products. I installed the system in our basement so I would have more room under my kitchen sink. It was easy to install thanks for the great instructions. The hardest part was snaking the longer water line across and through the basement ceiling to get to the kitchen sink. Thanks for the great product. (Posted on 3/25/2013)

    27. meet all of my expectations Review by Larry Bennett
      Satisfaction

      It met all of my expectations. Our well water is anything but clear; it is very mineral heavy and rust colored. After we installed the APEC RO system for our drinking water and ice maker, it worked incredibly well. The system produces more than enough clear, great tasting water to meet my family’s daily needs. We have never run out of water. I highly recommend this product!!! (Posted on 3/12/2013)

    28. Fresh pure water Review by John
      Satisfaction

      I purchased and installed the RO-PERM drinking water system about 13 months ago. Installation was pretty easy. We love the fresh, pure water from this system. All filters are made in USA and the housing is a quality made housing. This was only slightly more expensive than the carbon based water filter I used in my previous house. Now that we have a well I wanted to ensure great drinking water for my family. We each drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. We are happy with this system and highly recommend it to others.

    29. Definitely recommend Review by Charles Nunez
      Satisfaction

      Totally impressed with your unit. We had originally purchased a unit from a local plumber for more dollars. Never lived up to claims. Weak pressure, 3 phases and small tank. We are on a well. Ordered the RO-PERM from APEC. Installed it in the same location in the basement. Pressure is fantastic and the unit was easy to install. Extra 14 gallon tank is terrific. This is a great unit. My son will probably buy one, too! James, customer service rep was very helpful! Water tastes great. Very pleased! (Posted on 1/14/2013)

      This system works great. We live in the county and have pretty bad well water. With the system we know that we are drinking clean water.

It is quite and doesn’t take up much space (Posted on 11/22/2012)

    32. Installation was easy Review by James H
      Satisfaction

      I just got finished installing it a few days ago (was waiting for my Dad to come up to help with the new house). I've owned a previous product of yours for years, one of the countertop models for my apartment. Just like that one I was impressed with this full system. The quality is amazing and whomever engineers these things is a genius. The valves and fittings are sturdy and don't feel flimsy, something I think shows quality is that if it can't take a bit of a beating it isn't worth the money. My dad was also extremely impressed in its quality and value. My parents have a $5,000 RO/Softener system in their house for well water so they're pretty familiar with RO products (had the house 13 years with their system). So thank you for making a great product and it's been about a week since I installed it with my Dad in the basement and ran it up to the sink on the main floor. Glad it was so easy and I look forward to its continued use. (Posted on 8/13/2012)

We have a well in a rural area and have considered R/O system before. If we had known that it would produce water of this quality we would have bought one years ago. Consider us pleased and satisfied. (Posted on 1/12/2012)

    35. Better tasting coffee and tea Review by Andy Scarpa
      Satisfaction

      Got the unit and installed it in the basement under kitchen sink. From start to finish it took about two hours. Hardest part was drilling through kitchen sink; I used three different bits and made the hole larger each time till I was at the proper size hole. Flushed the tank 3 times and started using unit. Saves trips to the grocery store to fill three 5gal. jugs for water cooler. I now fill just one 3gal. jug for water cooler. Great to now easily use premium water for coffee and tea as well as for cooking. Tap water had chlorine taste but wasn't bad. Filtered water has almost no taste. Tested water from tap and it was 105 to 180 ppm during different tests. Filtered water comes out a 3 to 8 ppm. Quite happy with product. (Posted on 10/6/2011)

    36. Fan of APEC! Review by Terri Cross
      Satisfaction

      I purchased the Iron Hydro 10, and an RO PERM system, and I could not be happier. It has taken the iron smell, stains, etc... out of my well water, and our drinking water could not be better. More importantly, I want to commend the wonderful customer service of APEC, specifically "KEN" who was very helpful, polite, considerate, and very knowledgeable! I have since recommended APEC to many friends. Thank you! (Posted on 5/26/2011)

    37. Easy to follow insturctions Review by Jim Jones
      Satisfaction

      We bought our RO-PERM system with the upgraded faucet in December 2010. I was surprised to see that it all came in one neatly packed box. The instructions were so easy to follow, and the pictures were so good you almost didn't need instructions. I did have to purchase a different refrigerator connection, which I used the hose for the refrigerator and the water line tap to connect the main line. My house is over 100 years old and didn't have the right connections. I drilled a new hole in our porcelain cast iron sink for the new faucet, which looks great. Everything else has the quick connect fittings, and no leaks. The TDS of our water before the system was 242, and after was 10. The water tastes so good now and the ice cubes are clear. We would recommend your water systems to everyone. We are saving up for the whole house system. Thank you very much. (Posted on 1/5/2011)

    38. No more bottled water Review by Gene P
      Satisfaction

      The replacement UV light arrived promptly. It is now installed and leak free. The original defective UV light will be dropped off at UPS today to be returned. As a note, after less than 1 week with your Permeate Ultra Reverse Osmosis in use (Without the UV Light) I can honestly say that the water taste quality is 100% better. In the past, I would typically avoid drinking our well water here while preferring bottled water, and the salt from our home water softener ruined any chance of a decent glass of iced tea. Your RO system has made my water a pleasure to drink & my iced tea taste what I was hoping for. No more bottled water here! It didn't take long to convince other family members that your RO system was money well spent. Thanks again. (Posted on 11/17/2010)

    39. Excellent customer service Review by Terry Kline
      Satisfaction

      Last month (7/2010), we purchased the RO-Perm for our new (well water)home. Prior to installation, our water tasted salty and had a chemical odor...Even our pets refused to drink it. Now we have delish water and crystal clear ice cubes & everyone is so happy...Except, on the downside, had we waited just a few weeks, we would have saved an additional $86.00 during your SUPER SALE...Hey, who doesn't like a good bargain? Oh, I almost forgot...Great customer service. A rep spent almost 45 minutes on the phone with me, before I placed my order. He did not push for the sale but answered, at great length, every question which I asked. I thank him for helping me decide to make this excellent purchase...I'll drink to that! (Posted on 8/3/2010)

    40. Made in USA! Review by Clinton Meador
      Satisfaction

      I purchased your RO Perm unit over a year ago to make drinking water from a well here in Baja Mexico. I can't tell you how happy I am with the unit. With the local water plant not working our little system has taken care of us as well as a couple of our friends. I use 4 pre filters (50, 20, 5 and 1 micron) to filter the well water before it even gets to my unit, the well water is around 1900 PPM and when complete our water is 180/210 PPM and taste great. Because water is hard to come by down here, we return the brine water to the reservoir tank to be filtered again if needed. We are unique in that the electricity for the pump is furnished by my solar system. I have had several people from our camp look at my system and I always give them your company name. Over the last 10 years I have used other products none of which can hold a candle to yours. Love the USA products. (Posted on 6/18/2010)

    41. Clear ice cubes Review by Mike Smith
      Satisfaction

      Installed the RO-PERM permeate reverse osmosis system and installation was straight forward and quite easy. My system is connected to well water and currently have about a 92% to 95% TDS rejection rate. Pressure is about 50 psi out of the tank and I have it connected to the ice maker on my refrigerator. Great company, good follow up emails and great products made in the USA. (Posted on 2/12/2010)

    42. Performs as advertised Review by Ron & Lynnette Rother
      Satisfaction

      I wanted an RO system that would not only provide superior drinking water, but would function properly on a city water system that delivers medium water pressure (40 psi). The APEC RO-PERM system is a proven winner at my house! We are very pleased with the performance of this unit. I found installing this unit was very simple and straightforward. The directions were easy to follow and even used color coded lines to help with the set up. Even the most novice person would have no problems doing the installation.

      Our system is mounted in the basement's utility room, rather than under the kitchen sink. I mounted the unit on a single board for easy attachments to the wall, using a couple of shelf brackets to support the tank shelf. I purchased a compression-type master valve (no soldering) for connection to the soft water line. A single line runs from the RO system that feeds the refrigerator's ice maker, and a kitchen drinking faucet. We have clean, clear ice, and great tasting water. And, even though the faucet is located 30 ft. from the unit, we have excellent pressure at the faucet. We also plan on hooking up a feeder line to our furnace humidifier. Once again, the APEC RO-PERM performs as advertised! (Posted on 10/3/2009)

    43. Totally satisfied Review by Daniel Deter
      Satisfaction

      Recently purchased the system that is designed for low pressure well water systems. Was replacing an aging Culligan RO system. The RO-Perm was easy to install - great directions. Took really about an hour since I was using many of the lines and connections from my old system. I couldn't get one of the filter housings to seal properly. Called customer service and they sent the needed replacement parts right away. Fixed the problem. We've had it working for about 2 weeks now. What a difference compared to my old system. The pressure and quantity of the water is a huge improvement. Haven't run out yet even filling large containers for various cooking tasks. And we think it even tastes better than before. Am extremely pleased with the system. Although we'll really know its true quality and reliability only after several years of use. But for now couldn't be happier. Have already talked about it with friends. Appreciate the good product. (Posted on 8/27/2008)

    44. Good for well water Review by Gretchen Roman
      Satisfaction

      We have an off-grid home with well water that tested 14mg/liter for fluoride. I was worried that nothing could remove that much fluoride, but we just got our test results from the RO sample, and the fluoride is now .1mg/liter! We did add a fluoride filter to the RO-PERM, and we are completely thrilled with these results. We can drink our water again, and we don't have to contemplate moving. We drank this water for twelve years before having these tests run - I encourage everyone with well water to have it tested for fluoride, arsenic, uranium, and anything else that may pertain to the area you live.

    45. Great quality system and components Review by Joseph Grigelaitis
      Satisfaction

      I am very impressed with APEC and your customer service. I have been researching RO systems and was getting discouraged because I have only about 35 psi water pressure and no nearby electrical outlet to power a auxiliary pump. Fortunately, I came to your website and contacted by phone a representative who recommended the RO-PERM system. This is the only system that I have seen that has this type of technology to enhance the performance of low pressure installations. I ordered the system and installed it yesterday. It looks fantastic and performs perfectly. I was a little concerned about installing the system myself, but the instructions were very clear and I had no problems. I was particularly impressed with the included TDS gauge that was included in the system purchase. My untreated tap water had a reading of 150 ppm and the purified water had a reading of 20ppm... Thank you for the great system and a flawless purchase and installation experience. (Posted on 6/10/2006)

    46. Helpful team of employees Review by Steve Byes
      Satisfaction

      I have installed the new pump that you shipped to me at no charge. That seems to have fixed my high TDS readings. I now get consistent TDS readings from my Perm RO System between 19 and 29. This still seems to be a little high but I believe the system is functioning properly. Thanks for your quick response to my problem. It has been a pleasure to do business with a company that produces a quality product and has such a helpful service department. I intend to follow your directives for changing filters and I believe this sytem will give me many years of dependable service. If I have any more problems, I know you are people I can rely on for help. (Posted on 12/22/2004)

    47. Thanks again Review by Robert Haught
      Satisfaction

      I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on a fine product. I ordered my RO-Perm over a weekend and had it in Michigan by Wednesday. I installed it in a little over an hour, placed in the basement, and it pumps water upstairs to the kitchen without an extra delivery pump. Thanks for guiding me away from spending extra money for no reason. The rotten egg smell is completely gone, and many of your competitors do not even claim to treat that problem. The ice is clear and the water is delicious. Everything was just as you said. I highly recommend your company to anyone considering an RO product. (Posted on 10/9/2003)

    48. Water is crystal clear Review by Gary Donahoo
      Satisfaction

      I just finished installing the RO-Perm last night. I got up this morning to the freshest, clearest water possible. My TDS reading before being purified by the RO was 857, but with my new RO system it is reading 8. You can see a real difference in the water before it is treated. The color before treatment is quite dingy, but after treatment, it is crystal clear and tastes great. I would highly recommend your system. The directions are very clear and it took a little over an hour to install. (Posted on 8/23/2001)
