Our RO-400 four stage water filter system is a professional under-counter system that helps to reduce harmful contaminants that find their way into groundwater, directly affecting private wells and municipal water systems. It is ideal for under sink point-of-use installation and provides a continuous supply of clean, filtered water that is suitable for households of all sizes.

This system is equipped with three pre-filtration stages. The first is a sediment cartridge made from spun polyester. It effectively reduces and removes sediments including sand, silt, dirt, rust, etc. The second is a granular coconut shell carbon GAC cartridge, which is designed to reduce and remove chlorine, pesticides and volatile organic compounds. The third is an extruded activated carbon block, which will further reduce and remove chlorine, colour, taste and odour. The main filtration takes place over two high quality “three-layer-configuration" composite membranes, each of which consist of a thin polymer layer deposited on top of a porous polymer layer on top of a non-woven fabric support sheet, and are placed after the filters, facilitating the reduction and removal of 96-99% of all contaminants from the water, including mechanical impurities, bacteria and most viruses (0,0001μm and larger), ensuring outstanding water quality and providing faster flow on demand. Waste water is poured into the drain.

Two heavy-duty factory-fitted electric pumps support the input water pressure. Raising the water pressure in the system maximizes the efficiency of the osmotic membranes and thus ensures good performance from the RO system. If your water pressure is less than 2.8 bar then a system with a pump is highly recommended. The pumps supplied with this system are very effective and have been designed for many years of efficient service. These pumps are also very quiet.

Further key features of this system include a high pressure switch to be used in conjunction with an automatic shut-off valve if adding a water storage tank, enabling the system to eliminate waste by closing the feed line when the tank is full or shut down and conserve power when the water pressure reaches 30 PSI. Automatic and manual flush valves to purge the reverse osmosis membranes prior to use, and a low pressure switch to safeguard the pump should the water supply fail, are also included as standard.

Our four stage water filtration system is factory tested and ready to use with connection hardware, tubing and instruction manual, all of which is designed to make installation and maintenance quick and easy without the need for a plumber.

It is offered as a complete set with filter cartridges, RO membranes, additional accessories and valves to prevent the membrane from becoming dried out.

STAGE, PART#, COMPONENT, FUNCTION:

  1. PP - 10" sediment cartridge (pre-filter) melt-blown polypropylene. 5 micron sediment filter reduces dirt, sediment, rust and other particulate matter.
  2. GAC - 10” granular activated carbon cartridge (pre-filter). Coconut shell granular is used to reduce chlorine, colour, taste, odour, pesticides and organic impurities.
  3. CTO - 10" coconut shell carbon cartridge (pre-filter). Activated carbon block assures high-quality pur e water by further reducing chlorine, colour, taste, odour.
  4. 2 x 200GPD Membranes - Dual thin film composite reverse osmosis membrane (200 GPD - US Gallons - each), 0.0001 micron. Semi-permeable membrane reduces salts, minerals, metals, bacteria, viruses, cysts, TDS, hardness, fluoride, pesticides, lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic and more. Due to the time needed to reduce all these ingredients we strongly recommend purchasing a water storage tank with your RO system.

Important: Do not use with water that is micro-biologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Water filtration systems can help reduce the presence of contaminants. In addition, some water filtration systems can help reduce the presence of micro-organisms or other contaminants that pose potential health risks.

As with all RO diaphragm pumps they are not designed for 24/7 operation and you need to rest the pump for 30 minutes every 4 hours. This can be achieved using a low cost plug-in timer.

 

Limited Warranty: Vyair warrants that this product is free from defects in materials and workmanship. This warranty, together with any and all warranties implied by law, shall be limited to a period of twelve (12) months from the date of original purchase. This limited warranty does not apply to failures that result from abuse, misuse, alteration or failure to properly comply with installation, or cartridge change instructions. Vyair strongly recommends adding to all point of use filtration systems a Pressure Limiting Valve (contact us for further details) to guard against unwanted extreme water pressure events, pressure increases, surges, and water hammer which could occur in the water pipes. Not having one installed could mean that if you ever did have to claim damage caused by a burst water filter system, your claim could be denied.

What should my water pressure be?

Between 1-3 bar. If between 3-4 bar, consider an un-pumped system.

What Gallon-Per-Day (GPD) is this system?

This is a 400GPD system.

How often should I replace the filters?

Change the pre-filters every 6 months or their recommended lifespans (whichever comes first).

  • Average lifespan of particle/sediment filter is 12,000L
  • Average lifespan of a GAC carbon filter is 15,660L
  • Average lifespan of carbon block filter is 15,913L
  • Average lifespan of a post carbon filter is 9,500L

How often should I replace the membrane?

The membrane should be replaced every 12 months (as long as regular maintenance of the pre-filters and flushing is completed, see above for average life-span).

How quickly does this system make water?

This system produces water at a rate of 63 litres per hour (LPH). This is providing that you are running the unit in optimum conditions with the correct water pressure and water temperature.

What is the waste water to pure water ratio of this unit?

This unit has a waste to pure ratio of 3:1, meaning 3 litres of waste water to every 1 litre of pure water (running at optimum conditions).
