We called upon AquaOx after multiple “boiling water alerts” in our neighborhood over several months. Just love the difference in our home. Even shared a photo of my granddaughter hugging the AquaOx with a boiling water alert sign posted next to her! We feel safe and protected. The design is unique and they fully explain the layering of their media. I did allot of research before my purchase and I was impressed with information that other filtration companies held back on. As a retired Army Veteran (service connected disabled) I am proud to have supported AquaOx, a company that is registered as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).

The AquaOx whole house water filter unites science and technology with extreme fluidity. Water passes through six different filter media— arranged in layers within the purification tank. Each successive layer, which contains a generous quantity of the required media, has been scientifically engineered to remove a specific set of contaminants. Each layer has also been optimized to ensure sufficient water contact time for removal of the targeted impurities.

Vortech™ plates keep the media separated at two key points and are used in conjunction with the sanitizing backwash feature to keep the media layers clean and fluffy. Cleaning is critical because it minimizes the degradation of the filter media.

The Vortech™ plates also minimize channeling, which is when water finds the quickest path through the filter media, thereby diminishing filtering effectiveness.

Simply put, the science and technology behind AquaOx delivers a more thorough and long-lasting purification process. No competitor has AquaOx’s combination of features or matches the effectiveness of the AquaOx anywhere near its price.

AquaOx 6 Stage Filter Process

See below for a detailed description of our 6 stage filter process.

aoFilterMedium01KDF® 55

Generous quantities are employed to allow sufficient contact time with the water necessary to be effective.  KDF®55 process media works to rid your water of chlorine, lead, mercury and other metals.  The redox reaction also inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae and fungi.  As an added benefit, KDF media reduces lime scale, mold and fungi in your tub or shower.

aoFilterMedium02Filter-Ag

Filter-Ag is a very efficient filter medium for the removal of suspended material and turbidity. Its use means less pressure loss and finer filtration is possible because of its light weight and irregular surface characteristics.

aoFilterMedium03Activated Coconut Shell Carbon

Activated Coconut Shell Carbon is a superior product for the removal of chlorine, chlorinated solvents and VOC’s.  It is also harder and can tolerate more backwashing than bituminous coal based carbon.

aoFilterMedium04Centaur Catalytic Adsorptive Carbon

Centaur Catalytic Adsorptive Carbon removes both chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water.  Centaur is outstanding in VOC removal, taste and odor control and operating efficiency when compared with traditional activated carbons.

aoFilterMedium05KDF® 85

Generous quantities are employed to allow sufficient contact time with the water necessary to be effective.  KDF® 85 is most effective in removing hydrogen sulfide.

aoFilterMedium06Garnet

Garnet refines the water, traps sediments and removes larger solids such as dirt, hair, rocks etc.

We are the manufacturer. At this time, we just focus on creating the best quality filter we can while making it easy to install. Any plumber or a handy individual can install the AquaOx. If you or the plumber need help installing the unit, simply give us a call and we’ll walk you through the installation.
No. Studies have shown that the amount of Fluoride in the water has been significantly reduced over the past couple of years. Studies have shown that while the MCL for Fluoride is 4 ppm the average water quality report for Fluoride levels have shown to be about 0.5. Fluoride is also very difficult to remove and the only media that removes fluoride leeches into the water causing a bigger problem. The only way to remove Fluoride is with a reverse osmosis system or distillation which will cause damage to your entire homes plumbing system over time.
The AquaOx has a flow rate of 15 gallons per minute and the average shower head is 2.5 gallons per minute. For an average family of four, the AquaOx will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.
No. The AquaOx uses a state of the art water filtration technology that doesn’t require any replacement filters and will last an average family of four 15-20 years.
Yes. You simply unhook the system and take it with you. Remember to reattach the water line before leaving.
There will be no drop in water pressure up to 15 gallons per minute.
