Four years ago our family began to have reactions to chemicals.i did some research on what to look for in a reverse osmosis system. We could taste chlorine in the water, could taste chemicals, and the kids will break out.

My wife and I are environmentally conscious and we were looking for a way to soften our water without wasting most of the back flush our system was using.
It is definitely a great value for the quality you receive.
Upon opening the box I saw top, neatest, orderly packing job that I have ever well known on anything that I have ordered by mail.
Excess space was filled in with air filled plastic packing, not Styrofoam peanuts. Every thing was well placed and packed tightly. Thanks APEC! Know what, I decided on a reverse osmosis system for a while because being since the almost any week.

He figured out what our problem was and told us how to add air to the tank, that solved the real problem. To be honest I wanted cleaner and safer drinking water for my family, the water wasn’t horrible. Thanks for making a great American made product. We have had our system for almost 4 years love it!
By the way I decided it’s better safe than sorry, Our water supply has failed testing, contaminated with Coli loads of times.
In fact, To be honest I came up with this plan after chatting with a very knowledgeable rep on their website.

Christian -8/6/13 -California Just installed a whole house water filtration and UV sterilization system in my home. Far the unit is performing as I expected. The main test however, is that the chlorine taste is gone and the coffee tastes as good as using the bottled water. I ran identical to the faucet at the sink.

The APEC RO system has the LOWEST FLUORIDE levels of the majority of the waters I have tested!
My parents have a $ 5000 RO/Softener system in their house for well water so they’re pretty familiar with RO products.

Not only was it as good, it was twice as better.
Congratulations on constructing a very this kind of a great product, To be honest I recommend it to everyone that comes over. That’s a sign of true customer service.

If you need me for a reference. After two use years, my APEC system continues to produce very Know what, I had some bottled water and used the PPM tester to see if the water the harmful chemicals been removed from my water, Know what, I for any longerer have to worry about if my water is safe.

I am sure that the water tastes clean and fresh, and best of all, no more chlorine smells!

TDS readings on the supplied meter dropped from 72 to 2ppm. The chlorine dropped to a negligible amount and the fluorides from 8 ppm to 2 ppm. The first thing my husband said after reading the manual was how through and detailed the directions were. On another meter 86 to 7ppm. It might be nice to be able to take it with me when we leave NY. Whenever I move I should be sure to take this system with me. When I finally did the entire procedure it only took few minutes or two. My husband isn’t the most handy guy so we put off setting up the filtration system for about a week after we got the shipment before attempting installation. APEC reverse osmosis water system.
