Description, Features & Benefits
Reverse osmosis, also known as nano or ultra-filtration, is the finest home water treatment system available, capable or removing particles as small as 1/1000 of a micron. The Pentek RO-2550 is manufactured by U.S. based Pentair Water, the largest manufacturer of water treatment products in the world. It has been third-party tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 58 for the reduction of Barium, Cadmium, Chromium (Hexavalent and Trivalent), Copper, Cysts, Fluoride, Lead, Radium 226/228, Selenium, Turbidity, and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). Like most reverse osmosis systems, it can also be expected to significantly reduce a wide range of other contaminants as well.
The Pentek RO-2550 reverse osmosis system offers high quality drinking water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water and without the hassle of re-filling bottles.

FREE BONUS: Flowlok Leak ProtectorThe FLOWLOK Leak Detector is an innovative device that installs right below your water filtration system in minutes. No special tools are required and it does not need electricity to operate. FLOWLOK Leak Detectors utilize a highly compressed safety disc that expands when it absorbs water. Once the safety disc has detected water it expands and trips the FLOWLOK safety lever to shut off the water entering the water filtration device. Safety discs are replaceable and are economical.

|Size:||13 1/2" wide x 5 1/2" deep x 17 1/4" high; 17.3 lbs|
|Storage Tank:||2.8 gallon max. capacity depending on water pressure
Approx. Size: (diameter: 9 inches; height: 13.5 inches)
|Output / Production:||Testing by NSF International according to NSF/ANSI Standard 58 yielded 15.04 gallons per day with source water test parameters of 50 PSI pressure input, water temperature of 77F, pH of 7.5 +/- 0.5, and 750 ppm total dissolved solids (TDS). Higher production rates are expected with lower TDS levels. Lower production rates can be expected at colder incoming water temperatures.|
|Self-Cleaning:||The RO-2550 system uses a process of crossflow to constantly clean the membrane to prevent pre-mature fouling and clogging.|

This system is designed for use on all chlorinated and non-chlorinated potable water supplies. It is an excellent choice for most homes. If you do not receive your water from a municipal water system (you get your water from a well, lake or other non-treated source), you should have your water tested to ensure it is biologically safe (free of bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms) before using a reverse osmosis filter as your only water treatment. If your water is biologically contaminated, you should consider a point-of-use or whole-house ultraviolet purifier in addition to your reverse osmosis unit to kill any remaining microorganisms.
