Detailed First-hand Experience of A Waterdrop G3 Reverse Osmosis System User
by Dr. Jonathan Doyle - Updated September 20, 2023
With the arrival of his first little girl, Jeff Switzer decided it was time to switch to the new G3 reverse osmosis water filter system to ensure his family enjoyed a constant supply of pure drinking water.
“Water is such a large part of all of our lives,” said Jeff. “we wanted to be healthy and responsible.” Jeff eventually opted for the G3 RO system after much research and consideration. In this article, he shared with us his first-hand experience with the system.
The Waterdrop G3 ticks all the right boxes.
Waterdrop has made a name in the filtration industry with its revolutionary tankless water filter system design. The impressive reverse osmosis collection at Waterdrop comprises flawless filtration systems with entirely different designs and functionalities from the traditional RO systems. They are stylish, efficient, and durable. “I would even go as far to consider it stylish in today’s kitchen trends,” said Jeff.
“Water conservation is always on my mind…”
For Jeff and his family, living in the Sonoran Desert of North America means they are dealing with the hottest desert in the United States and Mexico. As a result, there is a relative scarcity of water in the area. But despite this, Jeff has always maintained a high drinking water standard. This became even higher with the arrival of a new family member.
According to Jeff in his review, “the low 1:1 drain ratio of the G3 compared to much higher ratios of other filters really was what swayed me to the G3 over other systems.”
Unlike the traditional RO systems out there, the Waterdrop G3 RO system’s drain ratio is 1:1. This means it saves water by up to 300%, making it a popular option for homeowners who consider saving water important. The more water you save, the lower your water bills.
This model’s high daily capacity of 400 gallons also ensures you get a faster water flow. It takes only 12 seconds to dispense a cup of filtered water.
“I have the MNR remineralization filter installed after the G3, and the taste is great.”
The eight-stage filtration in the Waterdrop G3 tankless reverse osmosis system has been tested by a third-party laboratory and confirmed to effectively reduce TDS, chromium, PFAS, fluoride, arsenic, radium, chloride, chlorine, calcium, nitrate, and heavy metals like hexavalent chromium in your tap water. This not only improves the taste but also makes it pure.
Jeff said in his review that the filtered water from the system was “better than any bottled water I’ve tried.” This is not surprising, considering Waterdrop specially made the G3 to deliver purer water than ever. Furthermore, Jeff combined the RO system with a remineralization filter—the Waterdrop MNR35, ensuring that the beneficial minerals are present in the filtered water.
The role of the remineralization filter is to restore lost minerals like potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, and others into filtered water. The remineralized water is good for the body because it aids digestion, contributes to immunity, reduces the speed of aging, and prevents chronic illnesses. In addition, the remineralization filter is compatible with most reverse osmosis systems out there, as well as under sink water filter systems, ensuring you get ready-to-drink “spring water” directly from your tap.
“Filter replacement is a 10-second job; just push and twist.”
The Waterdrop G3 RO system is easy to install—installation takes about 30 minutes, while filter replacement takes just two seconds. You do not have to move the system around or use any special tools.
The system performs an automatic filter flushing that takes 20 seconds after working for two hours. The same happens when power is restored after a blackout or abrupt disconnection. So you can always rest assured of getting fresh water, thanks to the regular automatic flushing of the system whenever you shut off the tap for up to 5 minutes.
You can set the Waterdrop G3 to holiday mode. In this mode, the system flushes itself automatically if it does not dispense water for 12 hours, ensuring that the water you get is always healthy and fresh.
For Jeff, the Waterdrop G3 offers more than a regular filtration device.
“Even beyond drinking the water straight up, it’s surprised me in other areas. The Waterdrop G3 has paid for itself just by keeping our humidifiers from being destroyed due to the city’s hard water. The water tastes great on its own, but on top of that, using it in my morning pour-over coffee has elevated the brew to out of this world.”
The importance of safe drinking water in our homes cannot be overemphasized. The same goes for the water we use for our stoves, ovens, and even humidifiers. High-quality, safe, and healthy water is also required for cooking at home to ensure that what enters our system regarding food is healthy. Even when talking in terms of the environment, like Jeff, homeowners need to adopt eco-friendly water filtration systems instead of water bottles to minimize their carbon footprint effectively.
“Would I recommend the G3? Without a doubt.”
Jeff’s final verdict on the Waterdrop G3 was overly positive. “It’s really one of the best investments I’ve made to my overall quality of life since purchasing it.” You should be like Jeff, taking responsibility for your health and that of your family by ensuring they only drink and use high-quality, safe, and pure filtered water.
