Aquasana Rhino® EQ-500-WELL Whole House Water Filter with Post-Filter Kit


Product Description expand_more

If your water is from a private well and you are looking to eliminate all potential bacteria and viruses then the Aquasana Rhino EQ-500-WELL System With UV Filter and Post Filter is the most efficient and effective water purification system available.

The system sanitizes the water with its AQ-UV-20 ultraviolet light sanitation system in the last stage of the unit setup. The AQ-UV-20 ultraviolet light sanitation system uses ultra violet radiation to sanitize drinking water as it passes through the system, which changes the DNA structure of microbiological contaminants. UV light radiation also prevents bacteria and viruses from reproducing, and microbiological contaminants cannot survive without constant reproduction. The AQ-UV-20 works with a filter which must be used before the system to prevent a shadowing effect, which can cause the UV radiation to lose its effectiveness.

If your water is from a private well, you face health risks from bacterial contamination and other local pollutants. The Aquasana whole house filter system for wells incorporates a media upgrade to help tackle your well-water challenges and keep your family safe. It will protect your family from contaminants and bacteria in the water — giving you peace of mind. Our unique whole house system is easy to install with the help of a licensed plumber and requires no back flushing. This product provides clean water for drinking, cooking, bathing, showering, laundry and even gardening — and most importantly lets you rest easy knowing you made the smartest decision about the water in your home.

NSF certified system

The Aquasana EQ-500 Well Whole House Water filter is certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI standard 42. Many other systems on the market today claim contaminant reduction with certified media, but at Aquasana, we believe that the entire system and media should be certified. This holistic certification is important for two reasons:

1)    Contact time with the filtration media is the most important factor for successful contaminant reduction. A system with certified media that is designed poorly may simply not have enough filtration media to be effective, or the water may have insufficient contact time with the filtration media to effectively reduce contaminants. There is no way to tell what kind of effectiveness a system has without a complete system certification.

2)    NSF certified systems must pass stringent structural integrity, toxicology and material extraction tests. This means that labs test systems to ensure that they will continue to operate correctly under constant water pressure. It also means that the systems are made of quality materials that will not add anything or leach additional contamination, like BPA from cheap plastic, back into your water.

Three-stage upflow design for superior contaminant reduction

Our whole house water system comprises three carefully sequenced stages, each with its own unique formula of high-potency contaminant-grabbing media. It's important to keep the media separate both to maximize contact time between the water and the media, and prevent mixing the different types of media. Mixing different filtration media can result in clumping and hardening over time, which causes channeling — where water flows through the same path through the media — minimizing effectiveness. We designed our sequenced three-stage, multi-directional flow system to optimize the contaminant reduction process and eliminate as much contamination as possible at each stage.

  • Stage 1 is a sediment pre-filter that removes particles, dirt, and rust — essentially the easy stuff to get out.
  • In stage 2, water flows up through a blend of a patented copper-zinc blend and crushed mineral stone. This stage greatly reduces chlorine, water soluble heavy metals, and scale.
  • Then the water flows down to our third and final stage, where the high-grade activated carbon finishes the filtration process, reducing herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and other chemical compounds that may be present in your water.

Cleaner shower, cleaner air

Your skin is your largest organ. The human body absorbs moisture through both your skin and lungs while you bathe or shower, so it also absorbs any vaporized contamination that may be present. Removing that contamination gives you a healthier and cleaner showering experience, which often means softer skin and hair within days. Removing vaporized contamination also improves the air quality in your home by reducing the volatile chemicals that a hot shower will produce. Our whole house filter will effectively remove over 97% of the chlorine in all of the water in your home.

Additional Product Information


The system is easy to install with the help of a licensed plumber. It installs where your water line enters your home - typically where your hot water heater is located. It can be installed inside or outside your home, and needs only be protected from extreme temperatures or direct sunlight. The system comes with everything you need for installation. System maintenance is easy: just replace the two main filter tanks every 500,000 gallons /2.26 million litres (about 4-6 years for the average household), and you can replace them yourself without a plumber's assistance. Simply shut off the water at your system with the provided valve, detach your main tanks (bottom and top tanks), and replace them with the new EQ-500R tanks. No messy, time-consuming, media-only replacements required. The process takes minutes.
