GE Merlin RO Filter
Anyone that needs a good Ro filter that makes more water than they should ever need should get one! I've had mine for 8 months now and love it! I had another RO filter before I got this one that didn't impress me at all. The Merlin RO filter puts out 750gpd + ro water and cost about $400 where other filters that don't put out half as much water cost almost as much as this one! Just my 2 cents! Take care Chuck
Ooh, sounds good. Do you know if it removes chloramines? (some r/o isn't as effective as others, so it doesn't remove stuff like that). Also, how often do you have to change the filter insert stuff, and how much do they cost?
Not sure if it does or doesn't remove chloramines...but here's a link that will tell all that you want to know! http://www.watervalue.com/merlin.html
I see it has when up a lot since I got mine...I'm glad I got it when I did!
750 gpd? That's a full house system. No wonder it says you don't need a tank, that kind of flow rate will just about keep up with your average faucet. With how much regular water RO units waste I can see the water bill going through the roof for most people with this thing.
Tyyrlym, it has a average efficiency rating of 23.70%...most ro units are closer to 10%!!!! In other words it doesn't waste as much water as reguler RO filters! Myself I use a plastic barrel that I fill with RO water and another I mix RO and tap water in to get what I want....
BTW: if your faucet only puts out 750 gpd then you need to call a plumber! lol
