The APEC water ultimate RO-90 GPD drinking water filter system is a 5-stage water filtration system. Now you may be feeling apprehensive because a lot of other water filtration systems use 7-stages. Let’s find out how the APEC stands up to its predecessors. So, this model is a WQA gold seal certified system and basically that means it’s certified to provide you with safe, clean and pure drinking water.
First the water passes through a high grade 5 micron 10 inch super capacity polypropylene sediment filter that removes big particles like dust and rust, this step also helps with the longevity of your overall system and its membrane. Stage 2 removes chemicals such as chlorine, and VOCs and also gets rid of any cloudiness, unpleasant odors, or strange tastes through a premium extruded super capacity 5 micron 10 inch carbon block. Stage 3 is similar to stage 2 in that it also uses a super capacity premium extruded carbon block that continues to remove any more odor, taste, or chemicals that may be lingering in the water. Step 4 removes up to 99% of any dissolved solids, bacteria, or contaminants such as heavy metals, arsenic, fluoride and more, through the Top tier FILMTEC RO membrane, which is of very high quality. Lastly stage 5 uses an advanced coconut shell refining 10 inch carbon filter to do a total contamination removal that eliminates any possible residual taste and impurities from the tank. So basically, your water gets a super deep, squeaky clean, CLEAN.
