This model includes a KDF85 carbon filter instead of the standard carbon filter, which eliminates chloramines. For more information on the KDF85 carbon filter, click here.
Hydro-Logic is proud to introduce the latest in their Stealth line of reverse osmosis systems - the Stealth RO150. New features include: 50% higher capacity (150 GPD vs. 100 GPD), 1:1 and 2:1 ratios now included in the box, as well as their Membrane Power Flush Kit to keep your system running as efficiently as possible.
The Stealth-RO150 produces up to 150 gallons per day of ultra pure, low ppm water. This system removes more than 95% of chlorine, hardness (calcium & magnesium), excessive minerals (iron oxides, fluorides and other heavy metals), and all other contaminants. Wastes approximately 50% less drain water than other RO systems on the market. Everything you need to get started producing bottled-quality water is included in the box.
Every grower should test or at least find out what the quality is of their source water (the water that is being used to water their garden, before any nutrients or enhancers have been added). Water quality is vital to the success of your garden. A simple TDS test on your water will tell you what your starting PPM is, however, it does not tell you what that PPM consists of. If you're using municipal/city water, then you know that it contains fluoride and chloramines that are used to sterilize the water and help "build strong teeth". But, did you know that these elements are also toxic to plants? Chlorine will volatilize out of standing water in 12 hours, however, chloramines will not, even if the water is boiled! Chloramines are toxic to fish, water and soil micro-biology and plants. If you are adding micro-organisms (Subculture, Piranha, Tarantula, compost teas, etc.) into your garden and aren't eliminating the chlorine and chloramines, you are wasting your money! Foul tap water will destroy and inhibit many of these beneficial organisms. To effectively remove chloramines and other contaminants, water needs to be passed through a Reverse Osmosis (RO) System. Besides fluoride and chloramines, many other impurities and toxins can be found in drinking water, such as: sodium, iron oxide, pesticides, industrial wastes/pollutants, etc.
If you would like to know what you and your plants are drinking, look up your city water quality at this site:
Once a grower has used and seen the benefit of RO water, they never go back to tap water. RO systems provide growers with pure, toxin-free water. The starting ppm for RO systems is also very low which allows the grower to supply his plants with the nutrients that they require, thus ensuring healthier, faster growing plants that can potentially yield more.
The Stealth 150 uses a new, patented, RO membrane technology, not an ultra or nanofiltration membrane. It is a standard thin film membrane (TFM) style that is not tolerant of chlorine. Like all RO membranes pretreatment of the inlet water is essential to maximizing the membrane life. Prefilters should be changed every 2-4 months to ensure maximum life on the RO membrane. The Stealth 150 comes with a pre-sediment filter, for removing large particles, and a carbon for lowering the chlorine level in the inlet water. If these prefilters are replaced regularly then the membrane should be checked once a year.
