Anyone using the Ruhen WHP-3000?
Any complaints about it other than the cost?

Hi all,

Anyone aware of this prefilter by AOSMITH?
https://www.aosbath.com/a-o-smith-home-pre-filter/#faq

I was told this was allowed by the authorities.

You can filter particulates larger than 100 microns.

However, I noticed that 3M has AP902 which filters larger than 5 micron, that is like 20x better!

Anyone aware if we are allowed to install this? If AOSMITH can, that means the 3M AP902 is allowed too?

Thanks!

Anyone buy their 3m water dispensers from Malaysia? Itís like 2500 RM vs 1600 SGD!

Of course got to ownself install..
Up for this, finding this ridiculously priced locally as well. I checked out the installation it doesnt really take much effort just an additional adaptor from cold water out.

Anyone did this and where did you get it from?

Here is not India.

I have one at home in my kitchen installed on the sink with its own tap by previous owner. But it has now become a white elephant.

If there's any issue, you have to ferry the whole set back to Malaysia to service. One way to cut costs is to buy the set in sg and buy the filters in malaysia.

The filters are bleached, won't leach? Also it won't retain water in a moist environment to breed bacteria?

Brass fittings not sure food grade or not, even so, won't mean that it won't leach lead. Can your filter remove toxic in the first place?

Inside the filtration system, if the medium to transfer water is silicon or plastic, those don't have antimicrobial properties. Meaning it can form biofilm aka Jelly like what you can find in air con.

If the water is super clean, until like distilled water. It's not really good for health and is highly erosive.

I deal with medical equipment, later I realised water is not so simple de.

I want to install cheap $8 one ... but my stove is beside sink , when cooking the hot air will flow sideways to the filter's plastic casing ... the warm temperature is bad for plastic and encourage bacteria in water
