This is a premium system made from the finest quality parts available without compromise.
This Reverse Osmosis Undersink 5 Stage model PSI-021-5RM is a premium low waste 1 to 1 ratio unit featuring the exclusive membrane flushing with a full size re-mineraliser.
It has the Dow Filmtec 300 litre per day TFC membrane, the 300 litres is rated at 50 psi (350 kpa) but will produce up to 450 litres per day higher pressures, what this means is the system will fill faster than most systems on the market. This system has an auto shut-off device that closes off the in-feed supply when the storage tank has filled.
The re-mineraliser (Alkalizer) which contains crushed Marble and or crushed Limestone, it's primary function is to balance the pH to neutral as reverse osmosis water is slightly acidic because the process removes the calcium from the water which acts as a ph buffer. The material contained in the cartridge is a sedimentary rock which is mostly calcium but also contains trace elements of other minerals.
As reverse osmosis removes not only the good a bad minerals in the water it is advised to add some good minerals back to the water. Health experts say that you obtain the minerals that your body needs from your diet. You should not rely on water as a mineral source as there is very little available to the body in water as the minerals are totally dissolved, the re-mineraliser in this system is about balancing the pH as a taste issue.
Premium systems now have the lowest waste ratio of all systems on the Australian market, using a Patented combination membrane flushing valve/flow restrictor means the waste ratio is about 50% less waste than other brands, waste ratio is now about 1 to 1.
All components are NSF certified to standards 042, 053 & 058
