Aquasana AQ-5300+.55 is a smart under sink water filter that offers excellent filtration performance. It can remove both chlorine and chloramine from water along with other harmful contaminants. It only works with a cold water line and installs easily.
Type of Filtration System: This Aquasana AQ-5300+.55 PFOA is an under-sink water filtration system that converts ordinary tap water into clean and healthy water.
Design: It has a space-saving and improved design than the previous Aquasana AQ-5300.
Filtration Stages: Three filtration stages include sediment pre-filter and two Claryum filters. These filters remove up to 99% of 77 contaminants from tap water.
NSF-Certified: The best thing about this unit is that the whole system is NSF/ANSI (National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute) certified. It meets NSF/ANSI standards 42, 53, 401, and P473.
Removal of Impurities: The sediment pre-filter eliminates rust, sediment, dust, and silt, and the Claryum filters include activated carbon, catalytic carbon, ion-exchange, and sub-micron filtration to reduce up to 99% of 77 impurities and contaminants.
NSF/ANSI standard 42 is for the removal of particulates, chlorine, taste, and odor. Standard 53 ensures that the filter extracts lead, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), cryptosporidium, and asbestos. Standard 401certification is because of the removal of pesticides, herbicides, and pharmaceuticals. And the NSF Protocol P473 is for the extraction of PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic acid) and PFOS (Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid).
Healthy Minerals: It doesn’t remove healthy minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium from water.
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS): Aquasana AQ-5300+.55 3-stage filter won’t reduce Total Dissolved Solids. So, it is useless to use a TDS meter to test the water quality.
Flow Rate: It has an improved flow rate of 0.72 gallons per minute than 0.5 gallons per minute of AQ-5300.
Filter Life: These long-lasting filters have a lifespan of 6 months or 800 gallons of water.
Bluetooth Connectivity: You can also monitor your filter with an app. You will receive a notification on your phone regarding the replacement of your filter cartridges.
Filter Replacement: It is quite easy to replace the filters. All you need is to twist on and off for easy replacements.
Weight: The weight of this unit is 7 pounds.
