        Simple install (about 15 minutes). With it, I don't have a Honeywell TrueStream tank filled with scales. Well worth the investment. Products were delivered on time and as advertised.

        Comments about RO Water Filter with Storage Tank:

        We live in an area with dry (low humidity) air, and hard water.
        This product, in conjunction with a Honeywell humidifier (working together with our heater/air condition whole house unit) has improved our indoor air quality tremendously. Highly recommended.

        Perfect addition to humidifier

        Comments about RO Water Filter with Storage Tank:

        I know my home has hard water. I got this to postpone the cleaning of my humidifier tank.

        I've only been using this for 2 weeks now but I know it will be worth it. The only minor issue I have with it is that it has some sort of air pressure valve. It hisses when the storage tank needs to refill after filling the humidifier tank. I say this is minor since it is mounted in my laundry room.

        Comments about RO Water Filter with Storage Tank:

        Pretty much everything you need to connect to your TrueSteam humidifier, even the PTFE tape for the single threaded connection. I would like to see a better designed base for the storage tank so it would be more stable, but when full of water it should be fine. Clear instructions, quick install.

        Comments about RO Water Filter with Storage Tank:

        I was getting too much scale build-up in my 12 gallon truesteam humidifier so got this. Installation was easy. had some leakage at teh #1 filter but solved that with some lube to the O-rings. I would rate a five but I have to see how the tank looks at the end of the season and if the "needs cleaning" light stays off the rest of the season.

        • RO Water Filter with Storage Tank

          Q:

          Is the permeate pump only to address low water pressure, or does it help "recycle" the RO waste water by sending it through the filter once more and only draining the briniest of the water? Any other tips to reduce water waste?

            The Manufacturer recommends that the filters be changed once per season or as needed depending on the water quality.

            Dear Joseph,
            The duration of this filter is dependent on use. The best way to handle
            this is to fit an inline TDS meter which cost around $40-50 and may be
            sourced from (http://www.waterfiltersonline.com/water-tests.asp). At the
            press of a button you will receive an instantaneous reading of the TDS on
            the water supply to the RO filter compared to the TDS of the water leaving
            the RO filter. This relatively small investment will take all of the guess
            work out of the process. When your filter needs to be replaced you will see
            the TDS reading on the water output of the RO filter creeping upwards.
            Concerning maintenance, there is no maintenance once the filter is installed
            other than a periodic TDS check as described above.

            The filters are only good for one season and need to be changed out
            annually (~$90). It really does eliminate the mineral build--up though if
            your water has any hardness. Last year my filters failed towards the end of
            the season for some reason but our water is hard so figured they get
            clogged eventually. This fall we put in a rainsoft whole-house filtration
            system as well and the humidifier filters are still working fine in spite
            of a record cold winter and high demand on the system.

            Lasts a long time. There are filters to change every year or two. It resolved the scale build up problems for me

            A:

            Depends on at least several factors including hardness of water, your
            preferred RH%, and length of heating season. All just another way of
            saying how much water is processed through the RO unit. My water is hard
            and I have humidifier set at 35% RH. I cut cartridges at end of year one
            and feel that two seasons would be okay. However, I'm taking conservative
            approach and replacing every year -- resulting in zero humidifier issues.
            Read about problems people have with units and I'll bet 98% do not have a
            RO kit. BTW my first humidifier died after one year and is why I installed
            RO unit -- haven't needed to clean humidifier in next 4 years.

            A:

            That's like asking how long is a piece of string. It all depends on the
            quality of the incoming water and the demand on the filters. My installation
            feeds two steam humidifiers for my house and the filters seem to go about
            two seasons. I measured the available flow at about 0.2 to 0.3 gallons per
            minute, more than adequate for my humidifiers. I keep a replacement (set of
            two cartridges) on hand because when they clog up the flow stops. Changing
            the filters (two of the three elements) is as easy as changing two light
            bulbs.

            My reverse OS filter lasted about a season and a half. Changed the OS and sediment filter also the flow control valve (which came with the filter set) set at same time just to be safe. Suggest you keep spares on hand. Mine quite flowing on very cold & dry day which I could tell by lack of humidity in house. Had to wait for 3-4 days for replacements to arrive via ground UPS. Pex, offers good price on this item and quick shipping.

            I change the filters once a year. The tank and other hardware do not need to be serviced and seem likely to last many years.

            A:

            Technically, yes, there's no reason the output couldn't be split to service
            anything you'd like. Whether it has enough output capacity is another
            story. That would depend on how fast your humidifiers are using water. If
            you try this, be sure to let the RO system run until the storage tank is
            full, then start the humidifiers. If the storage tank can't keep up (it
            goes empty) you'll know one unit isn't enough. Depending on your
            humidifiers, it may have a service light that will tell you it couldn't fill
            when requesting water. It certainly won't hurt to try-worse case is that
            you'd have to buy another. Just make sure you do the split after the check
            valve and the flow limiter (or whatever that tubing insert with the pin hole
            is called).

            A:

            Depends on the humidifier and the capacity of the Ro system. Most low
            end RO systems produce about 60 gal per day of clean water. If you are
            only using about 20 gal a day with 1 humidifier then you would be good to
            go.. you may want to add an expansion tank ( reservoir ) for extra
            immediate use. The tanks have a Blatter in them that takes up half of
            there volume. So by adding another tank when and if both humidifier
            recharge at the same time then there will be enough instant capacity for
            them. I am assuming you are using the True steam units.

            Yes, it is possible to use multiple humidifiers with the same humidity
            controller. Check out the Honeywell product literature for their truesteam
            products here:
            https://customer.honeywell.com/en-US/Pages/Product.aspx?cat=HonECCCatalog&pid=YHM512VRO1/U&category=TrueSTEAM%E2%84%A2&catpath=1.2.4.3.1&rank=6&v1=Sort.1.Product.Rank&asc=1
            If by chance this link doesn't work, just go to Honeywell.com then look
            under products and services->Buildings construction and maintenance. Then
            look under building controls and software -> building automation systems
            and controls. Next look under residential. Next click on humidty
            management then steam humidifiers, then truesteam. Pick your model and
            then check out the literature available.
            Specifically look at their English installation manual here on page 64 in
            appendix B: advanced truesteam wiring.

            A:

            I have two with two of the large 12 gal / day humidifiers each with its own RO unit.
            I can't find the flow rate of the RO system in any of the literature. If sure seems to drain a lot of water through the overflow pipe. Mine is piped into a condensate pump on the basement unit and while the humidifier is working it probably cycles the pump every 5 minutes. I would think the RO makes enough water to run two units, especially if they are the 6 or 9 gal/ day size.
            I added a solenoid to the water supply line that is interlocked to the heat pump so the water only flows when the unit is calling for humidity. This stops the continuous flow of water through the overflow.
            I hope this helps

            That would be complicated. I suppose you could try to split the supply line
            somehow with a Y connector but with both units creating demand either from
            cleaning cycle or general use it might create problems. You could always try
            it and if it doesn't fly add a second unit.
