Another question about under cabinet RO filters

Posted by jenny1963 (My Page) on

Do under-cabinet RO filters have to have a separate faucet or can the water just be diverted into the main (only) kitchen faucet? I don't have a sink that'll accommodate a separate faucet. I could handle a switch below the cabinet on the filter for when I just wanted to wash dishes and not have RO filtered water.

Does such a thing exist?

Thanks!!

Undersink ROs require a separate faucet. Most countertops can have another hole added.

There are counterTOP ROs that don't require drilling for a faucet and don't have a storage tank..

thanks for replying!

Well, I have now realized that I CAN put an RO system under my kitchen sink (with buying a new sink or cutting another hole in the granite,) by using a triflow faucet that has three levers.

Now just choosing an RO system or whole house system...is the aquasana Rhino just too weak for my house with too slow a flow rate?

The Aquasana Rhino is NOT an RO. It is simply a whole house filter.

What is it about your water that bugs you?

Have you had your water tested to see what's in it?

No, I know the Aquasana isn't an RO system; I want the Rhino just to remove chlorine etc., for when my 7 year old takes extended baths and our showers, etc.; but I WAS interested in an RO, additionally, in the kitchen for our drinking and cooking water, to get rid of the 900 (slight exaggeration) contaminants and pollutants in our City of Chicago water.
