[Costco] Brondell H2O+ Circle Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System - $329.99

Costco has the Brondell H2O+ Circle reverse osmosis water filtration system for $100 off, for a sale price of $329.99. Been considering some type of filtration system lately and I like this one in that it's fairly compact and relatively easy to install.

I'd love to see an RFD style run down for RO and other filter solutions for Canadian water. Has anyone done any water testing to decide what filter we actually should have? Next level is picking a filter that does the right job and minimize long term filter replacement costs. Maybe I'm asking for a lot here but this is definitely the right community for it.

Yes,

The RO with re-mineralization is the best bet if you are going with RO and worried about removing almost everything from water. This method will waste water as is the nature of RO but you will get either close to pure and + minerals if using remineralization with your RO. GTA area water is pretty good at around 150-180ppm contaminates.

If you are just looking to do clean drinking water with better taste, then you can just do a three filter system, sediment, carbon, coconut carbon. I have good results with it and cost is around 30ish per 12-24month depending on your usage.

As for the costco deal, yikes brondell, don't they make bidets too haha. Bidet -> Water filter. hah.

If RFD can maintain a list of toilet paper cost per sheet, I think we could do that.

I ordered that one today, once I seen the $100 off.
One thing I like about this one, is the waist water is minimal compared to others.
The RO membrane fiter is cheapest at Walmart, approximately 90 bux. The 3 pack filters are cheapest at Costco.
I figure worst case, if it sucks ill just bring it back to Costco.

Yes, it is pretty efficient at 2.1 to 1. The RO system at our old house wasted 20 to 1, which is ridiculous and added up in water bills when waste charges are factored in.
I also didn't like the taste, since we didn't have a re-mineralizer, which this system doesn't have, so I would highly recommend that.

I had a RO system at the lake but until I added a UV light to the array I still got stomach problems from the water. Even though the water was certified by health Canada even without a filter.

Second rule of RFD ... don't talk about stocktrack.ca with non-members of RFD
Third rule of RFD ... see first rule. if you don`t know first rule, someone`s following the rules ;)

Seen that but is the waist water is as low.
Emptying lots of water down the drain will add up after awhile.

I have this unit, bought at full price. Its nice and compact with easy installation and fits well under the sink. Only gripe is the water flow rate due to water pressure, is a bit low. It takes a while to fill up my bottle.

I just have a single filter under sink one on the cold water. Gets the water tasting great, very minimal effect on flow, and the filter is about $10 once a year.

Anybody that has one.
How often do you replace the filters.?
Is it more or less, compared to the stated specs?

RO water is not the healthiest water to be drinking. Remineralizing it makes a big difference. But I would go for a Berkey any day over RO or other filtration systems (Brita, PUR, etc). Berkey’s are expensive upfront but pays for itself as the filters lasts for years (will actually be cheaper than Brita’s 2-3 month changes).

HI, i used this company that had housing, filters tap and pipe all included. it was $125 or so a couple of years ago. I am sure you can get it from any company.

I think i bought this one: https://www.maxwaterflow.com/3-stage-Se ... p_245.html

But you don't have to buy it from them as housing and tap and piping is all fairly standard. I get the replacement filters from amazon for 30ish bucks.

I'd hate to see your diet if you feel you need to get your minerals from your drinking water. Marketing is what is driving demand for "remineralization", which didn't used to be a thing. Maybe another RO downstream the remineralizer, just in case it added too much?

Minerals make water taste good, ie spring water. Pure H2O is gross.
