Pollutants Removed

Pollutants:

 - Total Dissolve Solids (TDS). Maximum removal is 2000 ppm.

 - Lead, mercury, arsenic and others.

 - Reduces the hardens of the water.

 - Fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, chlorine and semi-volatile and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

 - Micro-organisms such as bacteria & viruses.

 

Flow Rate and Water Pressure

Flow Rate:

 -  3.12 g/hr, which is 75 gallons per day.

Water Pressure (optimal):

 - Minimum 40 psi to maximum 90 psi.

Filters (Material and Lifespan)

Filters characteristics:

 - Stage 1: Sediment filter (5 micron porosity) to remove any particles and turbidity.

 - Stage 2: Iron filter with (KDF-85) and catalytic carbon.

 - Stage 3: RO membrane to remove the most harmful contaminants.

 - Stage 4: Artesian filter (storage tank point).

 - Stage 5: Artesian filter (faucet point) and advanced remineralization filter.

 - Stage 6: Ultra violet filter to kill dangerous micro-organisms.

Filter's Life:

 - One (1) year or 3000 gallons for the Iron Filter.

 - 12 months or 2500 gallons for the artesian Filter.

 - One (1) year or 2000 gallons for the sediment Filter.

Water Source and Efficiency

Water Source:

 - Due to its characteristics, the Home Master Hydrogerfection will filter municipal water as well as groundwater.

Efficiency:

 - this RO filtration system is very efficient (1:1).

Size / Dimensions

Size:

- This filter is medium size. 

Dimensions:

 - System: Long:12" x Wide: 16" x High: 20".

 - Storage tank: 15” High x 11” diameter.

Note: please check your undersink space to verify this filter will fit in your available space.

Warranty & Certifications

Warranty:

Five (5) years over manufactures defects.

Certifications:

 - NSF/ANSI.


What to Know before Buying the TMHP Water Filter

Filters and Pollutants Removed

The Home Master TMHP HydroPerfection was built to complete 6 filtration stages so that it can purify up to 75 gallons per day (considered medium to good volume).

The inlet filters, besides removing up to 98% of contaminants, also add healthy minerals during the purification process, improving the overall taste of the water.

Phases:

So, let’s have a look to their composition and removal action:

  •  Stage 1: Removes turbidity and sediment, that can block the membrane.
  •  Stage 2: Removal of organic and inorganic compounds, odor, taste and VOCs/S-VOCs and most importantly, dissolved iron (usually found in groundwater).
  •  Stage 3: Removes of heavy metals and excess of minerals.
  •  Stage 4: Elimination of fluoride, herbicides, pesticides, chlorine; this is just before the water gets stored in the tank.
  •  Stage 5: Additional filtration (before delivering at the faucet point) in case there is any build-up of particles or sneaky compounds at the storage tank. Due to the RO process, here there is the addition (30 to 60 mg/l) of some of the mineral removed (calcium and magnesium) at that phase.
  •  Stage 6: Elimination of micro-organisms through UV activation.

Home Master TMHP RO system review - ACWLifespan:

In terms of the filters lifespan, all of them were designed for a one (1) year operation, however they differ in the number of gallons treated:

  • The sediment filter should be replaced after 2ooo gallons.
  • The artesian filters after 2500 gallons.
  • The iron filter lasts for 3000 gallons.

In this case, replace the filters based on what ever comes first.

…..What about the RO membrane and UV light?

Based on what the manufacture states, the ultra-fine pore membrane has a three (3) to five (5) year service life.

Regarding the UV light, it can operate more than 1 year but is suggested to change after this time for optimal operation.

Operation & Maintenance

The Home Master TMHP comes with all the required elements for an “easy”  and DIY installation; meaning, the systems will be assembled before hand.

It also includes a permeate pump and a Fast flow kit that will ensure the optimal water pressure and flow rate are achieved.

It is important that you verify the space of your undersink so that you buy a filtration system ready to fit.

…..The Flip Side…..

The faucet that comes with the filtration system is very standard and can drip overtime. If this is the case, ensure that you buy a NO AIR GAP FAUCET.


Home Master TMHP Review: Final Thoughts

What sets apart the Home Master hydroperfection from its competition is the non-electric permeate pump designed to reduce water waste with up to 80% while increasing water production at the same time.

The system has a low wastewater pure water ratio of 1:1 better than other systems like the Express Water; it is amazing for a reverse osmosis water filter.

We feel that the lifespan of the filters is a bit short, however is not bad for a RO system considering the filtration capacity.

It is a nice touch to mention the entire canister was build as one with the filtration media; this means, there is no way you will be drinking water where there is potential of building-up contaminants in the canisters itself; You will need to dispose the whole filter.

With its six (6) incorporated phases, the Home Master TMHP undersink reverse osmosis water filter system is one of the most popular among users and surely will do the same for you and your family.

What we like

  • ✅ Wastewater and filtered water ratio is 1:1, which is very efficient.
  • ✅ The Home Master TMHP HydroPerfection comes with a 5 year warranty.
  • ✅ Pre-assembled so you don't need to worry about the configuration (don't mess with it before hand though).

What we do not like

  • ⊖ Once installed, your under sink can look messy if the tubing is not installed properly.
  • ⊖ You will need to have a power connection available next to the system.
  • ⊖ It requires a no air gap faucet.
