APEC RO-90 Review
My previous water purifier was APEC-90 and I only changed brands because I wanted to try something smaller after my grandchildren moved out. It seems I’m about to buy anotherAPEC-90 to replace my current machine now that my grandchildren are moving back in next month.
Since I changed brands, my drinking water has never tasted better than it used to when I had the APEC-90, not even close. With the ability to filter up to 90 gallons of water per day, APEC RO-90 is the ultimate large scale water filter ideal for larger communities such as municipalities or really big families like mine.
The filters it has are high capacity filters. This means that at any time there will be very high flow rate and hence the speed of filtering will be more. In fact this model filters twice as fast as your standard water purifier.
Five stage filtration system
Unlike other similar devices in the market the RO-90 is designed on a five stage filtration system. The most natural assumption is to dismiss it as of lower quality than those other water purifiers,but this would be folly indeed. Due to the high standard of design, this water purifier offers as much value as any other in the market.
High Quality Filters
The filters used in this purifier are custom made by APEC, they are not standard issue filters. Apec take great pains to ensure that these filters are superior to the more regular filters. Quality tests are carried out, and the filters are made of high quality material so quality is assured. Due to this performance and life span of the filters is very good.
The APEC RO-90 has, as additional, JOFN Guest polypropylene fittings. These fittings do not come in the body of the purifier but can be fitted afterwards according to individual tastes. They do no harm to the water already purified, and their installation is a minor affair requiring little time and effort.
Upgrades are abundant in the RO-90. There’s a 14 gallon holding tank which comes in handy for larger homes and the quick dispense feature which is used when a user wants faster flow rates. An ice maker kit for a little sum of $ 12 from APEC themselves. All these and more are standard upgrades on the RO-90. It is hoped that this upgrades will lead to better functioning of the device.
Ultra Violet Purification
In addition to the upgrades mentioned above APEC also offer additional purification through a UV light system. The UV purification just works to ensure that an evengreater percentage of impurities and microorganisms have been dealt with. There are three different variations of this ultra violet system and all are reasonably priced.
- A number of truly essential upgrades for instance the UV system.
- Buying one makes one qualified for the APEC referral program.
- Detailed installation manual to guide you through installation.
- High quality components which make for a long lasting machine.
- Presence of a fully automated system that serves with minimum fuss.
- It is pretty costly.
