Although this system is a little pricey, it is worth every penny given its excellent design and perfect for larger households.
If you want a reverse osmosis system that is packed with features, you will absolutely love this iSpring selection. It uses seven—different stages of filtration to rid your water supply of 98% of lead and up to 99% of more than 1,000 contaminants—like arsenic, asbestos, bacteria, Calcium, chlorine, Fluoride, Giardia, hormones, Mercury, microorganisms, Sodium, and virus (just to name a few)—that it may be riddled with.
This system is more effective than other standard systems because it also features UV sterilization to further get rid of the contaminants in your water supply. The use of UV sterilization makes this system a good fit for both well water and city and water, so it is a perfect option for almost anyone out there. The iSpring RCC7AK-UV system also remineralizes your water and softens it to ensure it tastes crisp and delicious and goes down smoothly—which is much better than the hard water other standard systems deliver.

The brand offers live phone support that you can get in touch with five days a week if anything happens to your system.
The iSpring RCC7AK-UV reverse osmosis water filtration system uses seven different stages—which we will go over soon—to ensure you get great tasting purified water. It uses CTO and GAC filters to ensure your RO membrane is well-protected from larger contaminants and can filter up to 75 gallons of water per day, which makes it perfect for larger households.
Stages 1-3: Prefiltration
The first three stages of this RO system is the prefiltration process. This part of the filtration process will get rid of larger debris and contaminants in your water to prevent your reverse osmosis membrane from getting damaged. Between the sediment filter, the GAC filter, and the CTO filter, your water will be freed of chemicals, chlorine, chloramines and so much more!
Stage 4: Reverse Osmosis Membrane
Without the reverse osmosis membrane, this water filtration system would not do what it is designed to do—which is why the first three stages are incredibly important. When your water supply reaches
the reverse osmosis membrane it is already free of larger contaminants. During this stage, the system will get rid of contaminants as small as 0.0001 microns and your water supply will be purified.
Stage 5: UV sterilization
If you have low quality water in your home, the UV sterilization process is just the thing you need. This process is especially essential for those of you who use well water because it will kill bacteria, microorganisms, protozoan cysts, and viruses and that settle in your water. This stage features an 11 watt UV sterilization lamp that automatically turns on and off when your water flows, so you don’t have to worry about wasting additional energy with this system.
Stage 6: Water Remineralization
During the filtration process your water supply will be completely stripped of everything—even beneficial minerals like Calcium and Magnesium. This leaves your water hard and throws off its alkalinity. The water remineralization process will restore the waters alkalinity and improve its tastes by reintroducing Calcium and Magnesium to your water supply.
Stage 7: Water Softening
The last and final stage of this system is the water softening stage. Here the system uses a GAC filter to polish and soften your water, so it tastes great up until it is time to replace the filter.
