Apex MR-7050 UV-ALK Reverse Osmosis System
The APEX MR-7050 filtration system does more than simply filter water. The MR-7050 uses seven stages of water filtration plus a final pH adjusting cartridge to create pure alkaline drinking water and final UV disinfection stage to create pure microbiologically safe drinking water. The process starts by removing tiny particles like rust, silt and insect parts. This protects your family and prevents the filtration systems from clogging. Next, the water flows through two 5-micron activated carbon block cartridges. These compressed carbon block filters remove taste and odor-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramine and rotten-egg odors. But that’s not all. Did you now that the chlorine disinfection process can create cancer-causing byproducts in the water? The good news is these carcinogens, called THMs, are removed by the carbon filters. The carbon cartridges also remove organic contaminants like herbicides, insecticides and industrial chemicals that seep into groundwater. The next step involves the reverse osmosis (RO) process. Here water is “squeezed” through a special membrane. Heavy metals, like lead and mercury, are removed while purified water passes through. The RO process also removes salts, fluoride, radon and benzene. The purified then flows through a post-filter containing granular activated carbon. This acts as a polishing filter, removing any traces of tastes, odors or gasses, for crystal clear, sparkling drinking water.
Then the purified water gently raising the pH to an alkaline condition. Many health benefits are associated with drinking alkaline water including weight loss, antioxidant properties and reduction in bone loss (osteoporosis). The best part is the water does not taste bitter or chalky!
The last stage disinfects the purified water by exposing it to ultraviolet light. UV light destroys the DNA of harmful microbes, like bacteria, cysts, viruses, mold and algae. UV disinfection is a safe water treatment method used in hospitals, water treatment facilities and beverage manufacturers to ensure that drinking water is always safe to consume. The APEX-7050 7 Stage Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System has many applications. At home the purified water can be used for great-tasting beverages and cooking but also provides a level of protection for individuals with compromised immune systems. The high-purity water produced by the APEX 7 -Stage Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System eliminates water contamination concerns for immunodeficient adults and children. The filter is also ideal for well water in remote locations like farms, hunting cabins and even recreational vehicles. The APEX 7-Stage Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System is recommended for commercial applications that benefit from ultra-pure water. These include coffee shops, laboratories, dental offices and food preparation facilities. Home brewers and wine makers will love the consistent high-quality water they need to create great tasting beer and wine. Hydroponic growing will yield better crops because the water will not have nutrient, salt and TDS imbalances.

The APEX MR-7050 makes refreshing water the whole family will enjoy.
The APEX MR-7050 also includes a water storage tank and designer faucet. As the filtration system makes purified water, it fills the storage tank (up to 50 gallons per day). The storage tank sends purified water to the designer faucet. Your regular sink faucet will provide unfiltered water for washing dishes. The designer faucet provides only purified water for drinking, cooking and washing vegetables.
The APEX MR-7050 filtration system is pre-assembled can be installed with simple hand tools. We recommend installation by a licensed plumber to insure adherence to all local codes. Routine replacement of the filter cartridges is recommended to maintain filter performance. Replacement cartridges are available from APEX Water Filters.
