Stainless Steel Filling Station with 400 GPD Reverse Osmosis System
The Reverse Osmosis (RO) system is one of the most complete under the counter systems available. It has the ability to eliminate up to 99.8% of harmful contaminants in water such as bacteria, viruses, lead, radium, chlorine and arsenic. It makes use of a multi-stage filtration technology.
With the RO system, you can be rest assured that your drinking water is clean, clear and healthy.
The 400 GPD Reverse Osmosis system will produce 30 to 60 Litres of water Per Hour.
The Stainless Steel Filling Station (sometimes refered to as a Water Bar) allows you to easily fill client's bottles or containers with the filtered water.
The Stainless Steel Filling Station also creates a nice display piece for your store, with the glass tank section which has bubbles and lighting.
The Stainless Steel Filling Station also have a basin for filling, with a built in drain for spilt water.
**IMPORTANT** This Stainless Steel Filling Station setup is meant for filling client's Bottles and Containers ONLY. This setup is not designed to be used for Bottling, as it will not give the bottles a shelf life.
Please note that lead time on the stainless steel Filling Station is 3 to 5 working days from receipt of full payment.
Filtershop does not have in-house installers or maintenance staff, however the filling station is easy enough to connect and installer that a normal plumber or someone with DIY Plumbing knowledge can do it.
The Stainless Steel Filling Station with the 400 GPD RO System includes the following:
- 400 GPD Reverse Osmosis System
- Bacteria Pre-filters
- Stainless Steel Filling Station
The 400 GPD Reverse Osmosis system has 4 stages:
- Stage 1: 10 Inch Sediment Filter (1 Micron) - Removes Particles, Dirt, Sand, Mud, Rust, and other large visible Particles in the water. At 1 Micron You also start to capture some bacteria from the water.
- Stage 2: 10 Inch Premium KDF Cartridge - Absorbs Chlorine, Heavy Metals and Organic molecules (bad odours) from the water. The KDF also inhibits the Growth of bacteria on the cartridges, extending their life spans.
- Stage 3: 10 Inch Ultra Filtration (UF) Cartridge - Filters the water down to 0.02 Micron capturing fine particles and bacteria from the water. The UF takes the load off of the RO membrane, helping to extend it's life span.
- Stage 4: Reverse Osmosis Membrane - Removes bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and reduces the mineral content (TDS) of a water.
Setup Diagram For Stainless Steel Filling Station
Keep in mind:
- The system has a water wastage rate of up to 4:1 due to constant flushing of the membrane, so for every 1 Liter of clean, filtered water produced, up to 4 liters will be used to flush the system.
- The Stainless Steel Filling Station basin has a drain, which will require a pipe to a drain point for the spill water to run off to.
- The production rating of all the RO plants is based on a ideal quality source water, so in situations with low to poor quality source water the actual flow rate produced by a RO plant can be as low as 30 to 70 % of the actual rated capacity. So in the case of the 400 GPD RO System, you are like to find you get 20 to 50 Litres Per Hour Production.
- As stated previously the Filling Station itself is not designed for bottling. Bottling requires that the bottles are given a shelf life, by dosing Ozone into the water prior to filling. In order to dose ozone you will require a Ozone Generator and a Stainless Steel Storage Tank.
- An important thing to remember before installing any filtration systems is to check what size the source piping is. The standard household piping size is normally 1/2" (12.7mm) or 3/4" (19mm) thick. Some older houses have copper piping size instead of a newer system and in such cases special attachment will be required to install the RO to the copper piping. In order to ensure that you do not have to buy additional adapters due the connections not matching the piping, please check what type and size your piping is before ordering a filtration system.
- The Pre-filters and Membrane all have a certian life span and must be replaced to ensure that the system works effectively. Failure to do so will effect the quality of the product water as well as the reliability of the system.
Sterilizing Client's Containers and Bottles Prior to Filling
Although the water produced by the filling station will be clean, if the client's container or bottle has bacteria or dirt inside it then it will defeat the whole purpose of the water filtration system.
It is important to rinse and clean the clients container before actually filling it. This can be done using diluting either Milton, or Jik, or Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in to some water, and using it to clean the container.
Once the bottle has be adequately rinsed and cleaned, then you can fill it with your product water.

Additional Storage Tank
The Pressure Storage Tank will create a buffer of pre-filtered water, which will then fill the glass tank on the top of the stainless steel filling station. This has great benefit of helping to refill the Glass Display take more quickly, than it would directly from the Reverse Osmosis system.
There are several sizes of storage tanks avaliable, giving you varying amounts of pre-filtered water.
Pressure Protection Valve
The Filtration system is rated for a maximum pressure of 6 bar, pressure high than this will damage the system and it's components. If you do know that your area or source is prone to high pressure and/or pressure spikes we strongly recommend adding a pressure protection valve between the source water and the filtration system.
Additional Lengths of Piping
The 400 GPD and 800 GPD RO systems uses two different sizes of piping.
The source water piping which supplies water from the water source to the Reverse Osmosis system is 3/8" piping.
The piping from the Reverse Osmosis system to the Stainless Steel Filling Station is 1/4".
There is 5 metre of each size piping with the standard system, however additional piping can be ordered if you know either the distance between the source and RO , or the RO and the stainless steel filling station will be longer than 5 Metres.
Arkal Disc Filter
In situations where the source water has a large amount of dirt, sand, mud, rust, and other particles present it is a good idea to put a disc filter before the Reverse Osmosis system.
The Disc Filter will capture large dirt, sand, and particles. Which will help to extend the life span of the finer 1 Micron Sediment Filter.
The Disc Filter is reusable, and when it becomes block you simply remove it from it's housing and wash it.
There are three disc filter sizes avaliable, the main difference between the three is the amount of surface area, the larger the surface area then great the amount of time before the disc filter needs to be cleaned.
The 1 Inch Disc Filter has the smallest surface area, the 1 Inch Super Disc Filter has the second largest, and the 2 Inch Disc Filter has the largest surface area.
The other difference is that the 1 Inch and 1 Inch Super Disc Filter filter down to 55 micron, whereas the 2 Inch Disc Filter filter to a finer 20 Microns.
