Reverse osmosis water filters are a hit among customers who want to enjoy clean drinking water due to their high efficiency in contaminant removal. The iSpring RCC7 is a reverse osmosis system customers praise as it delivers on its promise to purify contaminated water, having a positive impact on the health of those who consume the water it filters. Reasonably priced and manufactured by a leading brand, it is an option we recommend you seriously take into consideration.
It measures 17.5″ by 14.5″ by 5.25″, whereas the tank itself measures 16″ by 11″ and has a capacity of 3.2 gallons. It fits nicely in most under-sink cabinets, and it comes with a lead-free solid brass body faucet that has a brushed nickel finish that has a smooth quarter-turn handle and durable ceramic valve.
In the box, you will find the RO system, pre-filter housings, the drain saddle, spare fittings and O-rings, housing wrenches, 4-color tubings, the complete filter pack, the 3.2-gallon pressurized tank, the lead-free brushed nickel faucet, the feed water adapter, the water detector, and the user manual.
This is a 5-stage filtration system that incorporates carbon block, granular activated carbon, polypropylene sediment, and reverse osmosis technologies in order to provide high-quality water straight from your tap year after year. All these innovative features work together in order to remove up to 98% of chemicals, heavy metals, sediment, and many other harmful contaminants that are usually found in your tap water. It can purify up to 75 gallons of water per day, and you can use it even if you have heavily chlorinated water or if your water source is the well.

It comes with 1-year money back guarantee, 1-year limited warranty, and lifetime technical support. It features a polypropylene sediment, granular activated carbon, carbon block, and reverse osmosis filtration technologies in order to provide you very clean, clear, and tasty water. The great advantage of having both a granular activated carbon and carbon block filter is that the loose carbon is excellent at trapping large contaminants.
This procedure actually allows the RO membrane and CTO filter to operate at their maximum efficiency and last a longer period of time as well. Once the source water enters the system, it goes through 3 pre-filters that help remove large contaminants and protect the RO membrane from chemicals like chloramines and chlorine.
Once the water passes through the pre-filters, it is forced through the NSF certified RO membrane, which is actually the same technology used to produce bottled water. The semi-permeable membrane has tiny 0.0001-micron sized holes, equivalent to just 0.000000004 of an inch. This will help remove lots of harmful contaminants, which is usually possible only with reverse osmosis. The last stage of filtration utilizes a finer granular activated carbon filter. On the last stage, it will be provided a final polishing before the purified water is delivered to the faucet. This filtration system also features quick fitting connections with 4-color tubing set.
It runs quietly and it features quick fitting connections with a 4-color tubing set. Take into account the fact that it can easily be upgraded to 6-8 stages if you add the alkaline, ultraviolet and/or de-ionizer stages. Thanks to the water detector, when the water will actually come in contact with the metal prongs, a loud alarm will sound, and thanks to the ASO valve, it will shut off when the tank is full in order to conserve water. It also features a flow restrictor that limits the drain flow and a drain saddle that serves drain tube to drain pipe.
Ease of use
It is specially designed to be user-friendly and easy to install, so you won’t need a professional to come in for the task necessarily. It comes ready for use with a wonderful goose-neck faucet and all the filters are included. You can mount the faucet on the counter as the main output source for the RO water. Furthermore, the output lines can be easily and quickly connected to your fridge output, ice maker, and coffee maker as well.
