  • No ideal for households with high water demands

The APEC RO-PUMP reverse osmosis system is designed purposely for households that have low water pressure.

It’s much similar to the ROES-50 in terms of the filtration process but with the addition of a reverse osmosis booster pump that makes it a suitable model if your source water pressure is quite low.

The unit comes in two versions, one which features a 100V transformer and another one that features a 220V transformer. Our review below focuses on the APEC RO-PUMP-100V model.

Filtration Process

The RO-PUMP-100V model utilizes the same APEC’s standard 5-stage filtration process we saw in the ROES-50 to purify water.

The 1st stage features a 5-micron sediment filter made from polypropylene and it traps all the large sediments and particles present in the water like dust, silt, sand, and rust.

The 2nd stage consists of a 5-micron coconut shell carbon block filter which is specifically designed to absorb chlorine, chloramines, VOCs, and other common chemicals that lead to cloudiness and unpleasant tastes and odors in the source water.

The next prefilter in the 3rd stage is also a coconut shell carbon block filter that further helps clear the remaining chlorine and chemicals that slipped through the 2nd stage.

The main filtration element, the RO membrane takes the 4th stage. It’s a quality 0.0001-micron TFC RO membrane with a pretty high TDS (total dissolved solids) and contaminants rejection rate.

This membrane will clear up to 99% of contaminants and total dissolved solids in the water. It will remove fluoride, lead, arsenic, chromium, radium, viruses, bacteria, and more than 1000 other contaminants.

From the RO holding tank, the water goes through one last stage which comprises a coconut shell post-carbon filter that performs the final polishing of the water by absorbing any residual taste picked up from the tank. What you get is clean and safe drinking water that’s free of odors and unpleasant tastes.

Electric Booster Pump

Now the outstanding feature in this APEC RO-PUMP-100V RO system and what differentiates it from the ROES-50 model is the inclusion of an efficient 100V booster pump.

It’s a great addition that makes this unit a reliable option for use in areas or situations where the source water pressure is low (lower than 60psi).

The pump can perform under source water pressure from as low as 0 to 30 psi which means this system will still operate well on low water pressure or when there’s no water pressure at all like in the case of well water usage.

By raising the water pressure, this booster pump will ensure the filtration process runs optimally and quickly to give you clean water despite any variation or a drop in pressure.

Filtration Capacity

The APEC RO-PUMP-100V comes with an effective RO membrane with a standard filtration capacity of 50 gallons of pure water per day. This is an average capacity that should suit small to medium families.

The unit wastes about 3 gallons of water for one gallon of pure water it generates. With the pump running and a decent source of water pressure, the ratio can reduce to 2:1 which is fairly good for an under sink RO system.

Installation and Maintenance

As far as installation is concerned, the APEC RO-PUMP-100V is a straightforward DIY unit that anyone who can follow the detailed instruction manual can set up. However, the pump will need a power source which may make things a bit challenging.

It comes with everything you need to install under your kitchen sink or basement. The maintenance is equally easy and low because the filters are all durable.

The three prefilters will last 6 to 12 months while the membrane and post carbon filter has a service life of 2 to 4 years. Furthermore, the pump is of good quality. It doesn’t consume a lot of power and runs quietly without causing any disturbance whatsoever.

In general, if you are struggling with low pressure, then this APEC RO-PUMP-100V model or its counterpart RO-PUMP-220V will certainly solve your problem and give you clean water for drinking or cooking.
