All reverse osmosis systems (such as under sink RO, countertop RO, and tankless RO) are known for removing beneficial minerals that are important to our bodies, leaving you with unnatural and slightly acidic water. Therefore, adding an alkaline remineralizing filter to your reverse osmosis system helps increase the pH level of your water and restore those healthy minerals. This, therefore, provides more natural and alkaline water. In this article, you’ll find the best alkaline reverse osmosis system.
What is the alkaline reverse osmosis system?
Most reverse osmosis systems go through the common 4-stage purification process, but through the process, important minerals like calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chloride, and magnesium are removed.
Since these minerals are essential to our health and our body does not produce them naturally, we need to find a way to restore them.
Adding a remineralization filter to our reverse osmosis system is one way to restore minerals in your water, and that’s where the alkaline reverse osmosis system comes in.
Alkaline reverse osmosis is a system with an alkaline filter for added essential minerals.

Alkaline reverse osmosis system reviews
The iSpring RCC1UP-AK is equipped with a booster pump and filters water in the 7-stage water purification process. The stages are:
3 pre-filters: PP sediment filter, Carbon KDF (GAC) filter, and Carbon block (CTO) filter. The pre-filter helps remove large contaminants and protects the RO membrane from chemicals like chlorine and chloramines.
Pollutants as small as 0.0001 microns are filtered out by reverse osmosis (RO) filters.
It is a fine GAC filter that provides final polishing before the purified water is delivered to the faucet.
It also has an 11-watt ultraviolet sterilization stage that helps kill viruses and bacteria.
The alkaline remineralization filter stage helps restore healthy minerals and a natural alkaline balance, while also producing a more natural taste.
It operates at a maximum feed water temperature (F) of 100 and a maximum feed water pressure (psi) of 80.
The RO membrane provides 100 gallons of water per day and filters down to 0.0001 microns.
The system has an alkaline remineralization filter that helps balance pH and reintroduces healthy ionized minerals, as well as an 11-watt ultraviolet sterilizer that helps kill viruses and bacteria. The UV sterilizer powers on and off with water flow.
Ispring products are tested annually to remove up to 99.99% of harmful contaminants that commonly appear in municipal and well water. Also, the filters, tanks, tubing, and other water-contacting parts are manufactured to strictly comply with NSF/ANSI standards (58 for reverse osmosis).
It has a transparent first-stage house. The transparent housing provides an easy way to visually inspect the sediment filter, view contaminants removed from your water, and know when it is time to change the filter.

Tourmaline, also known as “Magic Stone” or “gemstone,” is a semi-precious mineral stone well known for its incredible ability to aid in the detoxification process of the human body. ORP balls reduce water oxidant reduction potential to -150 mV-350 mV, which can help to maintain the vibrant health of human cells and support metabolism.
It is recommended to change the filter every 12 months.
The Frizzlife PD600 is a tankless design that comes with filters inside and a lead-free drinking faucet. It is a compact and sleek filter system with a small and convenient footprint that takes up less space and saves storage space under the kitchen sink.
This system comes with three huge filters that purify water in four stages:
Stage 1: It is a 2-in-1 composite filter (PP sediment filter carbon block filter) that Blocks fine debris and reduces particles such as sand, silt, rust, and insoluble impurities. It also helps prolong the service life of the RO membrane.
Stage 2: High grade 0.0001 micron RO membrane (ASR212) – it helps get rid of contaminants such as chlorine, lead, heavy metals, fluoride, mercury, VOCs, chloramine, arsenic, and much more.
Stage 3: Alkaline remineralization filter (TAM3) – Restores natural minerals, balances the alkalinity of RO water, and adjusts the PH to more than 7.5. It also reduces bad taste, odor, and polishes the flavor.
This system provides 600 gallons of water per day with a high capacity and stable water flow. The system can fill a 330 ml cup of water in about 10 seconds.
The system features a smart display panel and a built-in TDS system. The smart display panel tells real-time out TDS and the remaining lifespan of each filter while the TDS system monitors the quality of your drinking water.
It also features color-coded indicators that will always remind you to change filters in advance.
Replacement of the filter is easy. The first two stages of the filter require shutting off the power supply and can be replaced only with one single turn. You don’t even have to turn off the power supply to change the TAM3 filter.
