HOW IT WORKS;
- Stage 1 filters out sediment
with a 5 micron pre-filter.
- Stage 2 removes chlorine with
natural oxidation media.
- Stage 3 enhances taste and
clarity with bituminous charcoal.
- No wasted water or electrical
- 6 years between filter changes!
- Virtually no maintenance.
- 7 gallon per minute flow rate
means no loss of water pressure!
EQ-300 Central Filtration System
the Rhino® Whole House Water Filtration System, you can
enjoy bottled water quality throughout your entire home, in your showers,
sinks, bathtubs, washing machines, and dishwashers.
The Rhino® Central Filtration System is
designed to be virtually maintenance free for 3 full years. No costly
service calls or agreements just replace the main filter unit once every 3
years / 300,000 gallons (1,162,500 liters) for great tasting healthy water
on tap… always!
Effectively filters out chlorine,
synthetic chemicals, bad taste, and odor from municipally treated tap
water as it enters your home. This patented multistage filtration process
directs the water through 4 stages of filtration for optimum quality and
performance. Each Rhino EQ-300 system comes complete with an installation
kit, ball valve and pre-filter for easy service and to prevent sediment
from entering the system.
This deluxe, high-capacity unit should be
installed by a licensed plumber to insure proper installation. Normal
installation is 1-2 hours.
ALWAYS ASK FOR PRODUCT CERTIFICATION BEFORE
The Rhino® EQ-300 Whole House Water Filter has completed three years of
evaluation by Underwriters Laboratories. The product, the factory and
all performance claims are certified by UL under the strictest industry
Beware of companies that claim certified
components vs. a certified product.
If the product itself is not certified, you have no way of knowing what

Filter - Ten Facts
The EQ-300, as of
January 22, 2004, holds the highest capacity certification (300,000
gallons) of any filter system currently on the market. That means the
EQ-300 has been proven to last longer than any other filter unit. The
EQ-300 is also the only whole house filter unit with any certification,
The EQ-300 will perform
similarly to a standard water softener, without adding unhealthy and
unnecessary sodium to your drinking water. It is guaranteed to remove
calcium, iron, and other hardening agents down to 5 microns, while
retaining healthy mineral deposits.
The EPA has stated that
"Every home in America has an elevated level of chloroform gas [in the
air] due to the vaporization of chlorine... from tap and shower water."
Chloroform gas can cause and/or aggravate respiratory conditions like
asthma and bronchitis. The EQ-300 is guaranteed to remove
chlorine from water, at the point of
entry, greatly improving the overall air quality within the home.
calcium, and iron, the EQ-300 is certified to remove odors, bad tastes,
and sediment. We know from calculus, the amount of carbon, the water
flow rate, and the design of the system, that the Rhino EQ-300 will
remove >90% of VOCs and SOCs, as well as chlorine. Lead will also be
significantly reduced, but you need to keep in mind that your house is
going to reintroduce lead to your water (through corrosion of lead
pipes). Thus, the AQ-4000 drinking water filter is still recommended.
The EQ-300 is the best,
most effective shower filter system available. An ordinary shower filter
can remove only limited amounts of contaminants, because it must filter
at extreme temperatures. The EQ-300, however, is guaranteed to remove
>99% of many of the most dangerous water contaminants, because it
filters at lower water temperatures and is large enough to allow for the
needed contact time with the filtration media to produce water with
non-detectable levels of those contaminants.
Though far better than
nothing, simply using a shower filter and drinking water filter system
are not perfect means of protecting your family from the dangers of
water contamination. In a perfect world, all families would use a whole
house filter and a drinking water system. A dishwasher, with normal use,
will release more chloroform gas into the air than any other water
source in the house, excepting the shower. A whole house water filter
system is the only filter that can remove dangerous contaminants from
Because it does not
remove the healthy minerals in water during the filtration process, the
EQ-300 raises the
balance of drinking water to
approximately 7.5, depending upon water conditions. Acidic drinking
water (with a pH balance below 7.0) has been shown to cause mineral
deficiencies in teeth and bones.
The EQ-300 uses an
innovative four-stage filtration process for optimum contaminant
removal. This process capitalizes on mechanical filtration,
adsorptive filtration techniques to
chemically remove chlorine, VOCs, and other, more elusive water
The EQ-300 uses KDF-55,
which is a copper and zinc alloy that is certified to remove dangerous
heavy metals from water, such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, nickel, and
titanium. Exposure to these heavy metals can result in kidney damage,
skin irritation, and increased risk of cancer. These metals leach into
water sources through natural erosion and are generally not removed by
municipal water treatment plants.
The EQ-300 promises
benefits for laundry and dishwashing. Not only does the EQ-300 reduce
the amount of chloroform gas that is released into the air by the
washing machine and dishwasher, it also removes chlorine and VOCs that
could become embedded in clothing and reduces the amount of detergent
that must be used by these appliances.
