Portable R/O System

NOTE: The diverter valve supplied with this unit suits MOST common standard kitchen taps. If you have a tap with a thread that does not measure 22mm - 24mm the standard diverter valve will not be compatible.

HOWEVER, if this is the case we have an alternate fitting we can supply you which allows it to be connected to an outdoor 3/4" thread OR the Laundry water inlet (3/4") this is usually the most preferred method of using this system. PLEASE ensure that you have checked your thread before ordering, if you require the 3/4" fitting, contact us before making the purchase.

Total extraction of chlorine and chemical factors
Produces up to 120 Ltrs/day of fresh filtered water
Size: 39cm Length x 13cm Wide Weight: Less than 1 kg (dry)

System can be neatly and discreetly stored under your sink, and pulled out and used when necessary.

What makes this a Portable Reverse Osmosis Water Filter?
The most common form of Reverse Osmosis Water Filters is an Undersink Style, where the system is physically “Plumbed-In” under the sink in a permanent way. Our Portable RO Water Filters are designed to work off your kitchen tap using a diverter valve. This gives you the ability to take the system everywhere you go and can be easily and quickly installed on most standard kitchen taps.

How will I know if the system will connect to My Kitchen Tap?
Commonly, all kitchen taps use the same or similar type connections where the aerator goes (the mesh fitting that aerates the water when it comes out). There are some taps on the market that are a slim design and have small threads which unfortunately are not compatible. If your tap (thread where the aerator is) measures 22-24mm in diameter it will fit the standard diverter valve.

What if the system does NOT fit my Kitchen Tap?
There are alternatives you can use if this is the case. We have a range of fittings that suit different applications. You can use this system in the laundry on the ¾” washing machine inlet by using the Laundry Block Adaptor, this allows you to use your washing machine, and also the filter at the same time, diverting some of the water through the filter system. We also have a brass fitting that attaches to all standard ¾” Garden/Outdoor taps.

Is there a downside to using a portable system over the more common Undersink Variety of Reverse Osmosis Water Filters?
The only downside you will face is the flow rate or On Demand Capacity of the system. Reverse osmosis produces water at a rate of approx. 8-10L per Hour, which equates to a slow dribble of water. This is because the Reverse Osmosis Membrane has a micron rating of 0.0001 Microns, small enough to strip out all of the impurities in the water, including Fluoride. This is why the Undersink models contain a storage tank so you can collect water straight away from the tap on the sink. The Portable systems can be used to fill drinking water containers or dispensers as required.

Can I convert a Portable Reverse Osmosis Water Filter into an Undersink Filter?
Technically, yes. It is possible to do so however, there are several components that go into the Undersink models to convert it into a Plumbed in Automatic System. By the time you have purchased all of the necessary equipment, you will find it is cheaper to buy a brand new Undersink RO system.

How often do I need to change the filters?
As a general rule with Portable RO systems, the first filter (Or pre-Filter) should be replaced strictly every 6 months. This is highly recommended to help prolong the life of the more expensive and important Reverse Osmosis Membrane. If a pre filter is left on for too long, as the efficiency of chemical reduction is reduced, it may begin to let through residual traces of Chlorine through to the membrane. The Reverse Osmosis membrane is susceptible to damage from any number of chemicals that it comes into contact with, thus would begin to deteriorate more rapidly, potentially causing you to replace your membrane prematurely.

Will Reverse Osmosis remove 100% of Fluoride?
Reverse Osmosis filters can vary anywhere between 95% - 98% of effective removal of Fluoride. So technically speaking, Reverse Osmosis alone will not remove 100% of Fluoride from the water. In saying this, we can put this into perspective. The rough amount of Fluoride in municipal water can equate to 1L in an Olympic Sized Swimming Pool. If you then remove 98% of this, it then becomes 20mL per Olympic swimming pool. If you were to get the finished water analysed professionally by a NATA approved Laboratory, their instruments would not even be able to detect fluoride. So technically speaking, it won’t remove 100%, but the residual left over is beyond negligible. If, however, you want fluoride completely 100% removed, you can simply add a De-Ionising Resin Filter to the system which would render the water 100% Pure.
