7-Stage Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System
This genuine 7-Stage Reverse Osmosis System is a replica of our 4-stage system with 3 added stages for optimal benefit. Reverse osmosis is the most effective way to remove fluoride from water supplies.
By popular demand, this system is a replication of our portable “GT1-70shuttle”. However, this model is a plumbed-in version, complete with a 12-litre storage tank.
7-Stage RO “SHUTTLE" – Healthiest Water in the World
This system truly has 7 stages of water treatment—unlike other units who claim to have 6 stages and then class their water storage chamber as another “stage”.
Designed and manufactured exclusively by Aqua Systems Australia, you will not find another system on the marketplace with the benefits and quality factors of the new “SHUTTLE” 7-Stage Reverse Osmosis System.
For years we have stayed away from the health issues of water, in order to simply offer the best quality safe water at a sensible price with plenty of support and back-up.
In more recent times we’ve seen a change in the public’s interest in water for health. That, combined with a growing pressure from our buyers, has led to us making a stand on the subject and develop a system that will cover all health issues surrounding reverse osmosis, mineral water and alkaline stable water.
Everyone knows reverse osmosis (RO) water is great to drink; it removes mineral salts including fluoride, and chemical toxins introduced into our water supplies. However, there are a few downsides to RO that the inexperienced sellers either don’t know or refrain from telling you about. Regardless of the water supply, reverse osmosis will strip water back to pure 95–98% mineral and contaminant free H2O.
Our water treatment and analytical background supports the theory that RO water can and often results in a lower pH of the final drinking water. Just like rainwater, RO water is free from components that balance or stabilize the pH of water. Water with a low pH is known to be aggressive (corrosive).
When rainwater soaks into the ground it starts to dissolve parts of everything it comes in contact with and will continue to do so until its chemistry is balanced enough to no longer be hungry (aggressive). This is primarily where mineral content on water comes from.
As with rainwater RO is also stripped of its chemistry and may become aggressive, unfortunately the first point of contact with organic or inorganic materials is our body. This aggressive behaviour of water may contribute to the leaching of minerals from our body.
Another “no-no” in filtered water is distilled water. Drinking distilled water for prolonged periods of time often results in poor health for similar reasons. The most aggressive water on the planet is distilled water.
RO water isn’t all that bad in comparison, it always leaves some mineral component that takes the edge off the aggression, however if a simple pH test indicated the water is below 6.8 pH, it may also have the ability to leach precious minerals from our body.
Now we’ve covered the major pitfalls of RO water, I still maintain it is the best and healthiest option for us all to drink.
The very nature of a RO membrane is to remove 95-98% of all contaminants and it does this extremely well. Once we have this near-pure water we can begin to develop it to suit our needs. The “SHUTTLE” has been developed to do everything we deem to be important in drinking water, according to the exports and supply on demand from users’ testimonies and good old-fashioned research.
Stage One – Poly Spun Sediment Cartridge • Replace every 6 months
These economical Aqua Systems Australia sediment cartridges are constructed from polypropylene which is spun and melted simultaneously. This technique means there is no centre core to restrict filter performance. The Aqua System Australia series of sediment filters are compatible with most liquids and are highly effective for sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae removal. Aqua Systems Australia performance sediment filters have no chemical residuals. They are extremely high performing and carry a heavy load of sediment before requiring replacement. We choose to use these sediment filters over all other types due to their high performance, flow rate, load capacity, and their inability to grow bacterial slime.
Stage Two – Carbon Block Filter • Replace every 6 months
Many inexperienced sellers of portable RO systems offer a sediment filter in this position. This is a complete waste of money; these systems are primarily used on town water, so the first and most important filter should always be a carbon filter to protect the life of the membrane. The carbon block cartridge will remove any larger components, but more importantly, will stop chemicals from reaching the membrane. This should then prolong your membrane (which is your most expensive component) for a life of 3–5 years.
Stage Three – The Membrane • Replace every 3–5 years
This is a CSM RO membrane—the “engine room” of the system. All the work is done here, so all the filters before the membrane are primarily there to protect the engine. This membrane has a 0.02-micron rating. It is classed by the manufacturer to be a U.S 50-gallon per day membrane (190 litres). However, these figures are for optimum working pressure/conditions and will rarely apply in domestic Aussie kitchens. We predict the production of water to be more like 60–90 litres per day.
Although this is restricted considerably from the manufactures specs, It’s more realistic guide based on our experience and offers more than enough water for a 5 person home for cooking and drinking. Some sellers are stating ridiculous numbers like 300 Ltrs/day which will NEVER be achieved, and can only be viewed as another indication of inexperience in the industry.
The reduction rates for the membrane are as follows:
Aluminum 98%, Adrazin over 98%, Arsenic 98%, Aldrin over 98%, Benzene over 98%, Barium 95%, Chlorine over 98%, Cadmium 95%, Chloroform over 98%, Calcium 98%, DOT over 98%, Chloride 95%, Dichlormethane over 98%, Chromium VI 98%, Endrin over 98%, Copper 98%, Fluoranthene over 98%, Fluoride 95%, herbicides over 98%, Iron 98%, Lindane over 98%, Lead 98%, Methoxychlor over 98%, Magnesium 98%, PCB over 98%, Manganese 98%, pesticides over 98%, Mercury II 85%, Perchlorethylene over 98%, Nitrate 90%, Phenole over 98%, Potassium 95%, Tannic acids over 98%, Selenium IV 95%, Toxaphene over 98%, Silver 98%, Trichlorethlene over 98%, Sodium 95%, Trihalomethanes over 98%, Strontium 98%, V.O.C.’s over 98%, Sulphate 98%, total dissolved solids 95%, Zinc 98%.
Stage Four – Mineral Stone • Replace every 2 years
At this point the filtering has been completed and it is now about bringing the water back to a healthy condition for drinking. The mineral stone filter is here for two major reasons. Firstly, the aggressive water will dissolve small trace elements from the mineral stone, which is known to be primarily magnesium. Secondly, apart from being a sacrificial anode and assisting in neutralising the pH of the water, it releases healthy minerals the body requires. This has been advertised in some modern health drinks and mineral waters recently seen on TV. Our aim here is not to upsell the concept of what the minerals can do for you, but to use this filter as a stabilising stage of the total water quality.
Mineral stone is one kind of environmental protection and health care component that is mainly made of natural non-metal mineral tourmaline, Maifan stone, porcelain clay, calcium and magnesium carbonate by nanometre combination technology, special formula and agglomeration techniques, and used for activating, purifying and mineralising drinking water.
Stage Five – Infra Red Treatment • Replace every 2 years
This stage is truly delving into the health of the water, infra-red beads are simply miraculous given that they don’t even come into contact with the water. In keeping with ultra-violet light, this filter has the ability to assist in the sanitising of the water with infra-red emitting frequency balls through glass tubes.
Stage Six - GAC (Carbon Filter) • Replace every 12 months
When water runs through a RO process the stripping of the water is so severe that it leaves the water tasting a little bland. The mineral stone filter may also release some fine particles that could cloud the water when the filter is new, so this filter (being carbon) brings back the taste of the water and absorbs any loose fines from the mineral stone.
Just a few of the effects of the stage-5 infra-red rays on the body are:
- Activates the water molecules
- Improves oxygen levels in the body
- Warms & eliminates fats/chemicals & toxins from the blood
- Accelerates blood flow
- Reduces acid levels in the body
- Improves nervous system functionality
- Promotes the elimination of other wastes from our cells, therefore reducing acidic levels
- Improved nervous system functionality
- Promotes the strengthening of the immune system
- Far infra-red (FIR) rays ionize & activate water molecules in our cells & blood, therefore improve our blood circulation & overall health
This filter is great in front of filter systems to prevent bacteria and algae slime from prematurely blocking an expensive filter, particularly on tank water or any water that is not treated or sanitised. Water makes up 70% of mass of the human body. FIR is able to activate, revitalise, reactivate, develop and strengthen various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed. In the various organs of human body, the circulatory system plays an important role, especially in micro-circulatory system. When there are problems with micro-circulatory system, various ailments will occur.
FIR vibrating at a frequency similar to that of human body is able to penetrate the body activates cells and reactivates as well as strengthens the micro-circulatory systems. It regulates the blood flow and blood in blood vessels, which have been blocked due to blood clots and at the same time reactivate the vital energy in the body. Bio-ceramic granulate contained in this filter is the product, which is made of various kind of ceramics, mixed with mineral oxides like Silica Oxide (SiO2), Aluminium Oxide (Al2O2), etc. The mixture of these materials will emit FIR (far-infrared rays)
FIR also acts to:
- Prevent bacteria growth
- Relieve pain & speed the recovery process
Stage Seven – Magnetic Water Energizer • Never needs replacing
