Will 3 filter system transform lake water into drinking water?

Asked by: On the water guy
Yes the Rainfresh Drinking Water System 3 (RONA 1196048) can make lake water safe to drink. It removes >99.9999% bacteria (including E. coli), >99.95% parasitic cysts, reduces chemicals, lead, bad tastes and odours and sediment down to 0.3 micron. It installs under the sink and provides a constant supply of clean, fresh, safe and great-tasting water. We do recommend having the water tested regularly at a certified laboratory to ensure that the unit is performing as intended.

Does this system require the faucet or can I bypass and use my sink faucet for drinking water as well?  I like this system for the sediment etc as well.  Otherwise I know Rainfresh has an option for sink feed. 

Asked by: LaAnKe
This system has been installed for us with separate faucet. And I don’t know if it is possible to bypass and use sink faucet or not.

Does it come with fittings to install with either copper or PEX?

Asked by: Jonny80
I don’t think it does. It’s been a while since I installed it and I don’t want to guess. Check out page 4 of the install ion manual.  http://rainfresh.ca/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/UCS3-manual-BW-Sep-2019-EF.pdf

Does it remove Chloramine from Municipal Drinking Water (not Chlorine)?

Asked by: Black Wolf
Hi I do not know about chloramine but the water has no taste or door so I would think it does... phone the company they’re very helpful

How much water is wasted in comparison to how much water is purified with this system?

Asked by: mjs779
No water is wasted. The water enters the inlet, flows through the three filter stages and flows out the outlet which is then available when you open the faucet. There is no wasteful flushing as with a Reverse Osmosis membrane system with reservoir.

Rainfresh Carbon block Under Sink Water Purifier System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system Great system. I am using it for tap water coming from my cistern. Rainwater coming from the roof mostly. Never used to drink the water but after installing this system I am. Clean, clear and no taste. Easy to install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incredibly greedy supplier Bought and return it the same day. Most of houses theese days have Pex pipes. This set has only "punch through" valve for copper piping. The installation manual just says that you have to buy it from Rainfresh online shop. It costs $12.59 + 13.00 +GST???? And that is after spending 300 bucks for the System itself??? Incredibly cheap !!! behavior from "rainfresh" By the way filters lasts only 6 month. quite a lot of systems offer 1 year life for the filters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had the this unit over 10 years, I've had this unit over 10 years. I've only replaced the filters and lubed the O rings. I did buy more lube and a spare set of O rings from Rainfresh customer service to have as spares but did not have to use them yet. Just so you know the unit is rated at 2.4 L / minute. I suggest installing a dedicated shutoff value and to use measuring cups and a watch to time the flow rate. Increase or decrease the dedicated shut off valve to get 2.4 L / minute. Do this at initial setup and after every filter change. That is your baseline flow rate. When the flow rate drops off you know you need to clean the micron filter (1M). One year when there was water rationing there was a layer of mud in the micro filter, I had to clean the filter weekly with a green scrubby pad. Keep track when to change out the LR1 (1500 litres lifespan) and the CF2 (3785 litres lifespan). Follow these simple guide lines and you will always have clean drinking water. Also it is amazing that I can still get extra parts for this unit. The original faucet had a plastic handle and I broke it. I ordered a new one from Rainfresh for cheap and glad that they decided to make it out of metal now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I’ve had this system for about a year now, it does a great job, the water tastes fresh. It has also leaked from the filter housings 5 times on me and soaked everything under my sink and leaked down into the basement. The shut off valve has had a drip since the first time the filters leaked and I shut the water off. Don’t buy this system!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water quality is great! We're in the city but just wanted some assurance that we were getting good quality water and therefore went for the 3 filter system. We didn't install the faucet supplied, but instead obtained one that matched our existing kitchen faucets better. We would have preferred if they didn't include the faucet and therefore gave us a break on the price. We had a plumber install the unit and drill the hole in the counter; the plumbing fittings provided are risky, we didn't like the idea of piercing a pipe so proper fittings were installed by the plumber.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just spent money. We purchased this water system about a year ago. and when we installed it only bit and bits of water came out. so we decided to buy new filters to fix the problem and it didn't work either. We can't refund filters or anything. Not recommended. Bought from Newmarket.
