The Lan Shan reverse osmosis system now
makes it easier than ever to consume the cleanest and most pure water that you will have ever put into your mouth!
This unit sits on top of the countertop and is connected directly to the mains, silently removing all known water
contaminants such as Guardia, Cryptosporidium, scale, spores, bacteria, and perhaps most importantly of all,
This unit works via passing water under
pressure through a series of 5 filters. The clever arrangement of carbon filters remove organic contaminants and
chlorine, whilst the CTO reverse osmosis membrane removes everything else (see chart below).
Drinking clean pure water is one of the most
important things we can do for our health.
What makes this system better than the
Our system is governed by its own micro
processing unit - this means that at any stage throughout its working life, if there is a problem, there is
immediate diagnosis. For example, if any one of the five filters are in need of replacement, the owner of the
system is notified - thus removing any guess work from the equation. This in itself is VERY important with this
style of machine, as the water quality at any one time is only as good as the quality of water
What about the filters?
The Lan Shan systems are equipped with the
latest quick change cartridges, allowing the user of any skill level to change filters effortlessly
without all of the mess and fuss common with more conventional looking systems. This has now become the European
standard, with the older less reliable units being systematically phased out.
This unit has the ability to “auto flush”
and periodically clean its own reverse osmosis membrane. This feature is very important, as it vastly increases the
life of this component. Without the auto-flush, life expectancy is cut to roughly 30% of what it may have been
without this feature.
What is the water
The LSRO-919WRunit carries at
any one time 15 litres of purified water. As the water is
consumed, the powerful diaphramatic pump keeps the resovoirs topped up at all times - so the family is
ensured of a constant supply of clean pure water at any time of the
Where is the purified water
Installation is a simple process, and quite
often the home owner can do this themselves. The installation kit provides all necessary parts. The photo to the
left is the actual water resovoir used within the machine, and is composed entirely of 316 grade stainless
steel. The resovoir itself carries a 10 year warranty.
The stainless steel tank viewed to the left
sits neatly within the casing of the reverse osmosis machine, and is gauranteed to provide many years of trouble
How does it work?
Water is forced
through five filters in total before being
ready for consumption. A brief explanation of each stage will be
- Water first the first of three pre filters, called a
sedimentation filter. This filter removes debris and
organice waste down to the size of 5 microns.
Stage two - The second filter is called a GAC, being short for granulated
activated carbon filter. This level of filtration removes organic compounds, odors,
Stage three - This stage prepared the water for the reverse osmosis filter,
and will remove microscopic contaminants whilst adding a sweet flavor to the water via the coconut carbon. This
filter is called a CTO, being a
carbon block filter.
four - This is where the magic happens. When water passes through the reverse osmosis membrane, virtually removing all viruses, heavy metals,
bacterium and sodium fluoride. The LSRO-919WRreverse osmosis unit utilizes
athin film composite (TFC)
style membrane, being the most effective RO membrane
available on the market.
Stage five - The final filter is a GAC or
granulated activated carbon filter, making for a smooth and sweeter tasting
