If you are tired of worrying about how your tap water is affecting your health, you are not alone. There is a reason why, over the past couple of decades, people have been straying away from their home tap. With so much ground water contamination, and the breakdown of existing plumbing materials that we don’t use anymore because they contain lead, you have a reason to be weary about what you are consuming in a glass of water. Instead of hauling expensive bottled water around, or paying for a monthly service, make a permanent change that just makes good sense. Get a reverse osmosis water filtration system.
The Tap Master TMAFC Artesian Full Contact Reverse Osmosis Under Counter Water Filtration System is one of the options that you have for an endless stream of fresh water supplied to your home. It is one of the more pricer models, but when it comes to health, does the price really matter? For us it did. Just because something is more expensive does not mean that it is worth it. The Tap Master claims to provide purity that is unparalleled by any other water filtration system. The best part is that it not only removes those things in the water you don’t want, it replaces what you do.
One of the biggest negatives to having a reverse osmosis system in your home is that it creates “dead water”. Through the process of removing harmful contaminants, it also takes out all the essential nutrients that make water healthy. This is one of the only systems that we reviewed that compensated for that by replenishing the healthy minerals that are lost. Not only does it remove up to 98% of heavy metals, chemicals, sediment and other harmful contaminants, it puts back all the ones that you need after it is done.
Some water filtration systems require not only frequent filter changes, but arduous ones. This is a unit that is all in one, meaning that the filter changes are quick and easy. They claim that you can change the filter without any tools at all, now who doesn’t love that! Other units can have frequent and expensive filter changes, this unit claims that it can run for an entire year before a replacement liter is needed. Addressing the last concern that people have about these types of systems, it has an RO flow kit so that when you apply it to a faucet, the water pressure isn’t reduced to a slow trickle. That is common for most reverse osmosis water filtration systems.
So…is this the perfect machine?
The answer is that it is pretty close. Some water filtration systems can filter up to 99% of the same contaminants, but really what does a .01% really mean? For all intents and purposes it could just be a miscalculation. The only true complaint that we could find with this unit was based around how the RO flow may have a tendency to waste water. It is estimated that there are 3-4 gallons of water for every RO gallon filtered water. Even that was not a huge issue. If you are concerned about waste, they have a permeate pump that can undue the wastefulness down to 1-1.5 gallons.
It isn’t that we didn’t want to like this system, but we really tried hard not to fall in love with it. It is not the priciest water filtration system by a long shot, although it is in the upper crust. All the complaints that people have about reverse osmosis systems have been addressed with this model, truly all of them. You don’t need filters regularly, it adds back the necessary minerals, and it doesn’t affect the rate of water flow. So what do we have to say? We really liked it.
