Q : Will RO remove Sodium from the water ?
A : YES! Reverse Osmosis was
originally designed to make sea water drinkable for the
navy. It is ideal for everyone on a low sodium diet.
Q : Does RO remove Bacteria ? Crytosporidium
A : YES! An RO
membrane has a pore size much smaller than bacteria
virus,, pyrogen or the cryptosporidium parasite. When
functioning properly it will remove all micro organism
from tap water and produce sterile water.
Q : What does the MAX RO Water Maker's
drinking water tastes like ?
A : The Taste of the MAX RO water
depends on the amount of contaminants in the water
originally. If 95% of dissolved minerals and chemicals
are removed, the RO water may taste like bottled water
(low minerals), or natural spring water (moderate
Q : How much water does the MAX RO Water
Purifier produce ?
Under ideal conditions, the membrane is rated at 15
litres per hour of water production. This is a lot of
water for the average household's drinking and cooking
Q : What is the guarantee on the MAX RO Water
A : The MAX
RO System (excluding filters) is guaranteed for 1 year
for material and workmanship. All defective parts will
be replaced free within the first year. The membrane has
a one year pro-rated guarantee.
Q : What is the maintenance schedule for the
MAX RO Water Purifier ?
A : The three pre-filter cartridges
should be changed every 6 months. The first is a 5
micron sediment cartridge. The second is a Carbon
Cartridge. the third is a Executed carbon filter.
Failure to change the cartridge every 6 months may allow
chlorine to destroy the membrane. Depending upon the
water it is treating, the Thin Film Composite membrane
has a life expectancy of 3 to 10 years. The post filter
should be changed when the membrane needs changing.
Q : When should the membrane be changed
A : One indication
is a gradual reduction is water production caused by a
layering of minerals and salts on the membrane surface.
Another is gradual deterioration in the quality of water
being produced. You my notice a different
