What is the difference between the Eco-NX, Eco 1.5 and the Arrows?
Flow rate is the main deciding factor between our systems:
Eco-NX: 1.2L/min, Eco 1.5: 1.5L/min, Arrows: Between 2 – 10L/min
On the functional side, the Eco 1.5 is the only system that operates exclusively with the Acuva Smart-Faucet, while other systems can work with any faucet or appliance (all systems include the Smart-Faucet). In terms of constructional material, all systems are made of stainless-steel aluminum, at the exception of the Eco-NX that has a plastic casing and some internal plastic tubing.

Can you explain the main differences between the Eco-NX and the Eco 1.5?
Besides the flow rate, the differences between the Eco-NX and the Eco 1.5 are mostly related to their construction and function. Although the Eco 1.5 is more powerful and has a marginally higher flow rate; the Eco-NX has a plastic housing and some internal PE tubing, while the Eco 1.5 has an aluminum casing and an inner construction of stainless steel. Also, the Eco-NX has a built-in flow sensor so that it can be hooked up to refrigerator water dispensers, ice makers, and any faucet, while the Eco 1.5 is designed to work exclusively with the Acuva Smart-faucet.

Can both the smart faucet and my refrigerator’s ice maker line be hooked up to a single Acuva unit?
We have a tee-off kit (https://acuvatech.com/store/eco-tee) for the Eco 1.5 that can be used with the Smart Faucet and the refrigerators together. The kit includes an in-line flow sensor, a tee fittings to split the water flow, and additional tubing to reach the refrigerator. The Eco-NX and Arrow systems can be hooked up to as many dispense points as required.

What is the difference between the Standard Pre-filter and the Advanced Pre-Filter?
The standard pre-filter lasts up to 2000 gallons and removes chlorine, organic molecules, odor and taste. The while the advanced pre-filter lasts up to 5000 gallons and removes lead, heavy metals, chlorine, mercury, carcinogens, and other contaminants, as well as trubidity, unpleasant odros and tastes.

How often do we need to replace the pre-filters?
The standard pre-filter should be replaced every 12 months. The advanced pre-filter should be replaced every 18-24 months.

How long does the Eco 1.5 and the Eco-NX last?
The Eco 1.5 lasts up to 5000 hours while the Eco-NX lasts up to 1000 hours. After 5000 hours of use, the whole unit needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that these hours refer only to the time that water is running; at 1.5L per minute for 5000 hours, that would mean treatment of 450,000L of water (average household drinks 20L/day). You can expect this unit to last many years.

How do I winterize my water purifier?
Winterizing can be done quite simply by removing the carbon pre-filter and letting the water drain out on its own. The carbon filter makes it difficult to push air or antifreeze through the system, so it should be removed to be stored indoors over the winter regardless. If water doe not drain on its own when the carbon filter is removed, one can also disconnect the tubing from the unit to drain its water.
