  • Hi Maurie, We no longer sell the A500 system.

  • Why don’t you sell the A500 anymore? I’m looking for a system that will filter out glyphosate, hormones, flouride, chlorine, and others, as well as structure the water. The A500 seems like it would fit the bill! From what I gather, the 350 is not an RO system and has never been tested against glyphosate? Do you sell the restructuring component of this separately from the 350 unit if I want to install it with another RO unit?

  • Shaina Rico Hi Shaina, We don't sell it any longer. After 1.5 years of selling and testing, it didn't provide the same health benefits as the A305. Even though we did put minerals back in, it wasn't enough and trying out different mineral cartridges over the time showed that it's very difficult and cost prohibitive to remove minerals and then try to put enough back into RO water. Not enough minerals in water is a sure way of not getting any health benefits from your water.

  • Alma that makes sense. On our previous RO system we used trace mineral drops after filtration, but understand how systematizing that could be difficult. I’m really concerned about glyphosate, as it’s a potent antibiotic and it destroys the gut lining and can cross the blood brain barrier. Have you tested the 350 against glyphosate yet? And do you sell the restructuring component separately?

  • Shaina Rico It has not been tested on glyphosate yet. We do sell our revitalizer separately here: https://shop.aqualiv.com/collections/parts/products/aqualiv-water-revitalizer?variant=5456143555

    It uses 3/8" connections.

  • Alma Perfect, thank you! I see you also sell the PH/ORP filter separately. So I could set up my current RO system, then use the PH/ORP filter, then the revitalizer (I'll still use mineral drops)? Would I install the Aqualiv components before or after the RO water tank? Or do I not need the RO water tank at all anymore?

    Also, do you have metrics on the ORP range of the water using the PH/ORP filter? Even approximate values?

     

    Thank you so much for your help!

  • Shaina Rico You would install it after. First the RO, then pH cartridge, then revitalizer.

  • Alma right.  But would I need the RO water tank? Or just the RO filters straight to the PH cartridge?

  • Alma basically does the revitalizer act as the storage tank?

  • I am pretty sure you still need the RO tank, but I am not an RO engineer to know what that particular RO needs. Generally,

    RO membranes are very slow flow and they do require a tank.

  • Shaina Rico no it doesn’t. It’s not a storage tank.

  • Alma Ok. So it sounds like I will install the PH/ORP filter after the RO tank. How does the ORP filter work? How much does it change the ORP value of the water?

  • Shaina Rico Yes, pH/ORP filter after the RO tank and after the RO tank post filter. The RO tank has a bad taste and there is always a post filter, so make sure it's after that. The ORP is between -50 to -250
