CRYSTAL QUEST Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration systems are revolutionary breakthrough in the reverse osmosis and Ultrafiltration industry. Through years of experience, research have produced totally new most effective, healthiest Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration systems in today market. CRYSTAL QUEST Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration systems available at 12 to 17 stages - the number varying with model of Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration system that CRYSTAL QUEST offers. CRYSTAL QUEST Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration systems produce up to 100 gallons of top quality water per day and remove up to 99.9% of undesirable contaminants and filter particles as small as 1/1000 of a micron by forcing untreated water through a semi-permeable membrane. Pressure forces the water to flow in the reverse direction to the direction of flow in natural osmosis.
CRYSTAL QUEST Reverse Osmosis/Ultrafiltration systems have compact designs that can easily fit beneath the kitchen sink. Supplied with a complete installation kit that includes a European lead-free long-reach designer faucet, CRYSTAL QUEST 4 gallons steel pressurized holding tank, all interconnecting color-coded tubing, filter cartridges, Ultrafiltration membrane, RO membrane, and installation hardware for easy homeowner installation.
Water travels through 12 stages of filtration:
In stage 2, water passes through a .01 micron Ultrafiltration (UF) membrane. Ultrafiltration (UF) is an important purification technology used for the production of high-purity water. UF is effective for the removal of colloids, proteins, bacteria, viruses, parasites, protozoa and pyrogens (e.g., gram-negative bacterial endotoxins), other organic molecules larger than .01 micron, and most other water contaminants known today.
In stage 3, Water flows through pre one - micron filter pads (1 micron equals 1/25,000th of an inch), which removes suspended particles such as silt, sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust, dirt, and other undissolved matter.
In stage 4, water passes through granulated activated carbon (GAC). GAC is universally recognized and widely used as an effective adsorbent for a wide variety of organic contaminants, such as chlorine (99.9%), chemicals linked to cancer (THM's, benzine) pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), PCB's, MTBE's and hundreds of other chemical contaminants that may be present in water, bad taste, and odors from your drinking water.

In stage 5, Water flows through the ion exchange resin, reducing heavy metals such as lead, copper, aluminum, and water hardness.
In stages 6 and 7, water flows through 2 beds of Redox (Oxidation/reduction process) media made of a special high-purity alloy blend of two dissimilar metals - copper and zinc. Representing a new and unique way of water processing medium which by its natural process of electrochemical oxidation/reduction and adsorption action reduces and/or removes many unwanted contaminants from water. It is a major advancement in water treatment technology that works on the electro-chemical and spontaneous-oxidation-reduction (REDOX) principles. Chlorine is instantaneously and almost inexhaustibly oxidized. Iron and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized into insoluble matter and attach to the surface of the media. Heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, cadmium, aluminum, and other dissolved metals are removed from the water by the natural process of electrochemical process. They are attracted to the surface of the media, much like a magnet. The media inhibits bacterial growth throughout the entire unit. Read more about Redox (Oxidation/reduction process) media
In stage 8, Water flows through another one-micron filtration pad for further reduction of undesirable particles. The end result is a great reduction or elimination of a wide variety of contaminants.
In stage 9, Water passes through a CRYSTAL QUEST reverse osmosis membrane, which removes and filters particles as small as 1/1000 of a micron as most inorganic chemicals (such as salts, metals, minerals) most microorganisms including cryptosporidium and giardia, and most inorganic contaminants.

In stage 10 and 12, Water flows through another one - micron filter pads(1 micron equals 1/25,000th of an inch), which removes suspended particles such as silt, sediment, cyst (Giardia, Cryptosporidium), sand, rust, dirt, and other undissolved matter.
In stage 11, water passes through granulated activated carbon (GAC).
Option: Pressure Pump
A pressure pump will be needed if your water pressure is below 35 PSI, most city water will not need a pressure pump.

Great Product Review by Steve Shoemaker
Water tastes great! (Posted on 7/7/2014)
After installing this system, the water was actually tasty! If you could imagine living in paradise and drinking from a natural stream, this is the best description I can come up with. Review by Rick Corrigan
Our city does not fluoridate the water, but they do have lots of sediment and chlorine, I mean LOTS. They just switched over to a new system which is supposed to be better, but leaks from city water workers inform us the water is worse than ever now.
After installing this system, the water was actually tasty! If you could imagine living in paradise and drinking from a natural stream, this is the best description I can come up with.
The price for replacing the filters is reasonable, and I sleep a lot better at night knowing we have reduced much of todays poisons from our familys' intake.
Now we need to seriously look at non gmo foods supply. (Posted on 9/30/2012)
This filter unit was installed in just an hour. It is supplying delicious fresh tasting water and ice to our family and our guests who constantly comment and ask about it. Review by Jason Vaughn
My wife and I were expecting our first child in March of 2012 and decided that we wanted to protect the child from the poisons in the municipal water supply as well as raise them to think it was not "ok" for huge corporations to bottle the world's water supply and sell it back to us. This filter unit was installed in just an hour. It is supplying delicious fresh tasting water and ice to our family and our guests who constantly comment and ask about it. Have you ever had someone comment on how good your tap water tastes? Our daughter is now 6 months old and of all the things we worry about for her, drinking water is not one of them.

|Q||Reverse Osmosis System Differences|
What is the difference between your undersink Reverse Osmosis Systems?
Our undersink Reverse Osmosis systems are all based around a reverse osmosis membrane with added steps to the filtration process the higher the price and model number the more steps within the system.
What Does Capacity Mean?
The Capacity is the amount of water the system can create in a day measured in GPD(Gallons per Day)
Each system comes with three capacity options 50 GPD, 75 GPD, 100 GPD. The higher the GPD, the faster the system creates purified water. What this translates to in use is that the higher the capacity you choose the less time you will have to wait for the 4 gallon holding tank to fill up
If you have a large family or use a lot of water, a higher capacity should be chosen
