Product Description

Product Description

The AP-RO5500 is a reverse osmosis system for the reduction of lead arsenic, TDS (total dissolved solids), turbidity, parasitic protozoan cysts, radium, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, fluoride and selenium. The filter has a high flux, thin film composite RO membrane that provides high quality water production. It has 25 gallons per day Universal system design that may be used on chlorinated or non-chlorinated, municipal or well systems. The filter has a sanitary quick change cartridge design that aids in quick cartridge change. It has a long reach faucet, a 2.4 gallon (9 liter) tank and necessary water/drain connections.

From the Manufacturer

The 3M Aqua-Pure® Reverse Osmosis System APR05500 is an under-sink multi-stage water filtration system that provides superior-quality drinking water to a dedicated faucet. The system includes activated-charcoal pre- and post-filters, as well as the signature reverse osmosis filter. It produces up to 25 gallons/95 liters of filtered water per day. An automatic shutoff helps promote peak efficiency and water conservation. Quick-change cartridges make regular maintenance as simple as changing a light bulb. The system and replacement filter cartridges are manufactured by 3M Purification Inc. (3MPITM), formerly CUNO Incorporated.

The reverse osmosis process, in conjunction with activated charcoal pre- and post-filters, helps to reduce particulate and rust, chlorine taste and odor, and lead, arsenic, TDS, parasitic protozoan cysts, radium, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, fluoride, selenium, and other chemical and biological contaminants in the water supply. The system can be used with chlorinated (municipal) or non-chlorinated (well) water. The high-flux, thin-film, reverse-osmosis membrane and charcoal filter cartridges are easily replaced. It is made from FDA CFR-21 compliant materials and designed for installation on a kitchen cold-water line at a maximum water temperature of 100°F/37.8°C and maximum water pressure of 125 psi/862 kPa.

Reverse osmosis water filtration helps to remove impurities by forcing water through a membrane and leaving particles behind. Reverse osmosis is typically used in connection with cellulose triacetate (CTA) or activated charcoal pre-filters and post-filters, and units are often designed to be installed directly in the drinking-water line under the kitchen sink.

In addition to the filter housing, the 3MTM Aqua-Pure® Reverse Osmosis System APR05500 includes a pre-filter, post-filter, reverse-osmosis membrane, 1/4” inlet tubing, 3/8” outlet tubing, a long-reach faucet, 2.4 gallon (9.1 liter) tank, and water/drain connections.

For more than a century, 3M has applied innovation and technology to improving our customers’ lives and supporting their business goals. Today the company, from its headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, serves industrial and commercial customers and consumers in nearly 200 countries. 3M Purification Inc. (formerly CUNO Incorporated), provides filtration and separation solutions for food service, science labs, residential, marine, and other applications. The 3M brand, across thousands of products, represents consistency, superior quality, and value.

We love this filter. Water tastes great!
I decided to go with the Aqua-Pure since it has WQA certification and is manufactured by the 3M (the brand I trust).
Installed it myself and installation was very easy. The toughest part was to secure a tiny drinking water faucet it came with to the sink. Whole process took me about 45 minutes.
Filter came with the 1/2" water supply line adapter, but since my kitchen faucet uses 3/8" connectors - I had to run to Home Depot and purchase a new dual-output shut-off valve (3/8" and 1/4") so I could hook up the filter.

If you're purchasing this filter to protect your health, consider the choices that were made in designing this filter. We've had this filter installed for almost a year, and this morning I noticed a weird flicker where the water exits the spigot. Upon closer inspection, this flicker turned out to be a large piece of chrome plating that was flaking off from the tip used on the output spigot. This tip is plastic, and is coated with a process known as PVD (physical vapor deposition) and I'm assuming in this case that the metal is chromium. This was an alarming development, as the last thing I want my child (or me) to be ingesting in our water is flaking chromium particles, yet this is what was happening. I removed the plastic tip with a vice and could clearly see the flaking metal on the inside. wiping the inside of this tip produced a whole bunch of metal sparkles that lead me to believe that this component was probably leaching flakes of metal into our water for many months.

I'm an engineer myself, and I design products for a living, and this choice by the manufacturer to include this component (plastic with a metal plating finish), and further to not properly test this component for durability over the life of the filter system is alarming to say the least. It makes me wonder what other decisions were made in the design that drift from the primary goal of producing drinking water that is free from pollutants and toxic elements.

I'd steer clear of this filter, or buy it and rip the plastic tip off the dispenser spigot before the plating starts peeling off.

This is a top quality RO system. Water tastes great and the system performance is adequate to meet all our filtered water needs (drinking water, tea, coffee and cooking) for the family of three people. Installation is not too hard for a person with basic plumbing skills, however the installation manual is somewhat confusing, particularly where it instructs you to sanitize the water tank. The vendor does not supply sanitizing crystals anymore, instead they recommend using liquid bleach, but you cannot inject it directly into the tank because the bladder is closed. After some online search I found a recommendation to use 5 ml of liquid bleach injected into the tank tube before filling it with water and it worked perfectly. Another note: the water line connector that comes with the system is 1/4x1/2, so if you have a standard 3/8 water valve, you would need to get a 3/8x3/8x1/4 tee or replace your valve with 3 way 3/8x3/8x1/4.

Expensive, but it works well and no leak. This is my 1st month and I do not have any problem with it. Had Watt premier and exchanged 3 times and all leaks...
