The Home Master TMAFC-ERP is our second pick on our list of reverse osmosis system reviews—and it definitely deserves to be there. This is one of the best RO system out there because it delivers clean and great-tasting drinking water effectively and efficiently. If you want a quality RO system, this NSF certified selection exceeds safety and quality requirements necessary to achieve this certification to begin with.
For anyone looking to purify their water so they have quality drinking water they can trust, this is one of the best RO systems to consider. It features a seven-stage filtration process that will not only purify your water supply by ridding it of up to 98% of the contaminants it may be riddled with, but it will also improve its taste and get rid of any unwanted odors.
Thanks to its patented technology, this RO system also features a remineralization stage that will replenish your water with beneficial minerals, Calcium and Magnesium, during the filtration process. Typically, systems will conduct the remineralization process at the end, but this system is unique because it will remineralize your water supply two times during the water purification process.
If you want a water filtration system that saves water, so you have minimal water waste, then you will benefit from the permeate pump this system utilizes. This pump will actually reduce you water waste, increase the volume of water that gets filtered, and optimize the system’s water flow rate. All in all, this filter will be able to filter a total of 2,000 gallons of water.
One of the best features about this system is how easy it is to maintain it. Its filters only need to be replaced once a year—or every 2,000 gallons—and they are really simple to switch out. The pump, which is not electrical, is durable and built to last like the rest of the system—so you can count on it to purify your water for years to come.
System Specs and Filter Maintenance
7-stages of filtration
Unlike standard reverse osmosis systems that have 5-stages of filtration, this system has seven! This Home Master system uses a combination of Carbon pre-filters with catalytic Carbon to rid your water supply of chloramine (a chlorine replacement) and the unwanted odor and taste it leaves behind.
One of the steps in the seven stages is the remineralization process, which is done through via
the brand’s patented “Full Contact” method. This method allows the system’s permeate pump p remineralize your water supply two different times during the purification process—the first being while the water makes its way to the system’s storage tank and the second being when the water travels to your faucet. The remineralization process is important because it restores your water supply with calcium and magnesium, balances the water’s pH level, and preserves the life of the storage tank.
You can count on this system to remove up to 1,000 different contaminants from your water supply. More specifically, it can get rid of up to 99% of the chemicals. chlorine, chloramine, dissolved solids, heavy metals, and pharmaceuticals (to name a few) from your drinking water.
This system address problems RO systems have had in the past with the use of a modular filter system. Instead of having the filters and their housings separate, where you would only replace the filter, this system uses filters attached to their housing. This makes the annual filter replacement simpler, reduces the amount of build-up in the system, and eliminate the occurrence of leaks.
Material and Installation
The purchase of this system will come with absolutely everything you need to get it installed and all of the parts were manufactured in the USA. The system is NSF certified for safety and quality standards, so you can bet this is a durable and effective RO system.
This undersink RO system does come with a storage tank and permeate pump, so you will need to make sure to measure your space and ensure it will fit. Follow the manufacturer’s easy to follow instructions for proper installation.
Pros and Cons
• Comes with a 5-year warranty
• Easy to install
• Reduces water waste
• Maximizes water flow rate
• Installation instructions need to be followed specifically or leaking will occur
Overall, this is a high-quality seven-stage reverse osmosis water filtration system that gets the job done. To stand behind the quality of their product, the company offers a five-year limited warranty with your purchase to cover certain incidentals. This system is designed to be leakproof, water-saving, and built to last you the long haul.
Although it is a little bulky, if you have the space for the system beneath the sink, you will find that it is worth every penny you spend. The systems permeate pump doesn’t require an electrical connection and boosts the systems performance and maximizes its flow rate.
