EQ-300 Rhino Whole House
"Every household in America, on municipally treated water, has an elevated level of chloroform gas in the air, specifically from showering, washing dishes, washing clothes, and flushing toilets."
- The U.S. EPA
The EQ-300 Whole House
Water Filter is performance-tested by
(Underwriters Laboratories) to NSF
(National Sanitation Foundation) standard 42 with class
1 performance. This means the system is certified to
odor, taste, and sediment. The EQ-300 produced non-detectable
levels of chlorine for 300,000 gallons, the highest
certified capacity of any home water filter ever. The
next closest certified performance was from an NSA filter
that was certified to 75,000 gallons (that certification
expired a few years ago).
The cost of testing for a 300,000 gallon cycle is prohibitive.
The chlorine test alone cost over $80,000. Testing for
each contaminant like we did with our AQ-4000 would
cause the retail price of the unit to go up significantly.
The EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter is certified to treat more water than any other certified water filter, ever.
Any company claiming that their whole house filter reduces
etc. has not proven it. Simply ask them to display the
3rd party test data and see what their response is.
Our claims are substantiated by UL, and we are very
proud of our whole house water filter. The difference
between the EQ-300 and the AQ-4000 is that the EQ-300
filters water at 8 gallons per minute, and the AQ-4000
filters water at .5 gallons per minute. This slower
flow rate allows for a longer contact time with the
media, and, because it was designed to only filter 500
gallons (instead of 300,000), the AQ-4000 can concentrate
more heavily on more aggressive contaminants, like VOCs,
MTBE and THMs. Because
the EQ-300 was designed for whole house applications,
and needs a higher flow rate, it is a 5 micron filter
which will reduce sediment 4 times smaller than is visible
to the unaided human eye. The AQ-4000, on the other
hand, is a .5 micron filter, that will reduce cysts
which are 40 times smaller than can be seen by the human
eye. Finally, the Rhino was not designed for the reduction
of lead, as all of the lead in your water comes from
pipes inside your house. Therefore, you still need to
filter your water before you drink it.
The EQ-300 will filter out the chlorine, so that you are not exposing your family to the cancer-causing and asthma and allergy irritating effects of chloroform gas every time you turn on a faucet, flush a toilet, wash dishes, wash clothes, shower, or bathe.
The Whole House Water Filter is also the only perfect shower filter there is.
Because of the size constraints, the difficulty in filtering hot water (90-110 degrees), and the 2.5 gallon per minute flow rate, no shower filter can significantly reduce all of the chloroform, chlorine and THMs present in tap water. The EQ-300 is the only viable way to filter bath water. This is because there are no standards for bath faucets, and there is no way to design an adapter that will fit all or most of these faucets.
