What if you could have all the pure water you could drink all day long without having to pay for bottles? Forget those pitchers and sink adapters with filters. They’re good, but there is something even better. Reverse osmosis filtration cleans tap water well beyond what municipal systems can do. It removes all sorts of contaminants that some of these smaller filters can’t. Reverse osmosis systems last for years, don’tneed much maintenance, and are easy to install by non-professionals. Let’s take a look at two of the best filters on the market to see which is the best for you.

iSpring RCC7

iSpring RCC7 5-Stage Residential Under Sink Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System – WQA Gold Seal Certified, 75 GPD

When you see the abbreviation “GPD,” that’s gallons per day. Imagine how many pitcher filters or bottles of spring water you’d have to buy to arrive at 75 gallons per day. Those little faucet-mounted filters can’t keep up with the iSpring RCC7.

The RCC7 eliminates up to 99% of more than one thousand pollutants. That means you won’t need to worry about drinking or preparing food with poisons like chlorine, fluoride, lead, arsenic, pesticides, viruses, bacteria, sulfur, and plastic derivatives.

If you aren’t sure if you can trust their claims, just know that iSpring has achieved the RCC7 Water Quality Association (WQA) Gold Seal certification after rigorous testing. The RCC7 passes the National Science Foundation (NSF) high standards for reverse osmosis filters. The filter’s parts are all food-grade, and the filter itself is built in the USA. They even include a new water faucet in the box in case your old one has a buildup of contaminants inside it.

You can easily keep an eye on the status of your filter because the 1st stage is transparent. That also makes it kind of pretty, so it’s too bad you’ll be installing it underneath your sink. In fact, you can set it up yourself without a plumber—it’s that easy. Besides linking it to your faucet, you can run output lines to your refrigerator’s ice maker and your coffee maker. Just check first to see if you need additional supplies.

More features of the iSpring RCC7 Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System:

  • iSpring offers a 1-year money-back guarantee as well as a 1-year warranty on the RCC7 plus lifetime tech support
  • Comes with European-style Brushed Nickel Faucet, complete filter pack, tubing, wrenches for installation, feed water adapter for both 1/2″ NPT & 3/8″ COMP, drain saddle, spare fittings and O rings, and user manual

 

iSpring RCC7P 5-Stage Residential Under-Sink Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System w/ Booster Pump – WQA Gold Seal Certified, 75 GPD

Now why would you prefer the iSpring RCC7P over the RCC7? Think of the “P” as standing for “pressure.” The RCC7P is perfect for when you have low incoming water pressure. It boosts the water pressure high enough that you can make full use of a reverse osmosis water filter. It also has the side effect of increasing the speed at which the filter purifies water.

Just like the RCC7, the RCC7P gets rid of more than a thousand pollutants, from manmade chemicals to naturally-occurring minerals that are poisonous to humans. It has the WQA Gold Seal for quality, safety, and durability. This Gold Seal is not easy to come by. Companies that get this rating on their products have done intense testing on them over time.

More features of the iSpring RCC7P Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System:

  • iSpring offers a 1-year money-back guarantee as well as a 1-year warranty on the RCC7 plus lifetime tech support
  • Holds up to 2.5 gallons of water ready at a time
  • Comes with European-style Brushed Nickel Faucet, complete filter pack, tubing, wrenches for installation, feed water adapter for both 1/2″ NPT & 3/8″ COMP, drain saddle, spare fittings and O rings, and user manual

 

Recommendation

The choice between these two filters is simply a matter of knowing how much water pressure your home has. If you’re at the low end of typical residential water pressure, say around 30 to 40psi, consider getting the iSpring RCC7P. It increases the water pressure so that the filter works effectively.

Otherwise, if you have normal municipal water pressure entering your home, the iSpring RCC7 will work well for you.
