Who would I choose?
Based upon my personal experience I would choose APEC Water.
Well first of all – and the thing that initially attracted me to them when I began searching for a residential reverse osmosis system for my home – it’s because of their website. I found it to be the easiest, most user-friendly, and informative of all the suppliers I researched. And that is for residential units, for commercial units it gets even better. As mentioned in the chart above, the website has a customization tool that allows you to pick and choose options that is really convenient and user-friendly. It also updates that price as you make selections so you always know where you stand from budget standpoint.
Secondly, it was their professional help. I had a few questions before making my purchase, so I called into APEC for assistance. The girl that answered the phone asked me a few questions then got me over to another representative that took the time to listen to my particular situation, assess my needs, and offer a solid recommendation. Not only that, but APEC’s staff is WQA Certified, which means they’ve completed industry standards training and passed the required tests, which certainly provides added peace of mind in my opinion.
Third, since ordering and installing our APEC reverse osmosis unit I couldn’t be more pleased with the end-product and quality drinking water we now have. Even my wife, who was skeptical at first, acknowledges that the water is better and that we’re all drinking more H2O than we did before.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
In it’s simplest form reverse osmosis is the process of using pressure to pass water from a more concentrated area through a semi-permeable membrane to a less concentrated area.
