Another Episode of Product Comparison: Waterdrop G3 vs Home Master TMAFC-ERP

by Dr. Jonathan Doyle |

Welcome to another blog on reverse osmosis systems comparison. It is a good idea to compare products before you put one in your cart, especially so when there are just far too many RO systems currently on the market, this blog will help you find the product that is perfect for your needs. In the last article, we compared waterdrop G3 to the iSpring RCC7. A link will be provided if you are interested, but this time we will be doing comparisons between the G3 and Home Master TMAFC-ERP.

RO is an abbreviation for "Reverse Osmosis.” Wikipedia defines it as a water purification process that utilizes a partially permeable membrane to remove unwanted molecules, larger particles, and ions from drinking water. RO is a water treatment product that comes with a high recommendation from the Environmental Working Group (EWG). If you require more information about RO, then click here.

The Similarities between the Waterdrop and Home Master

Both Waterdrop G3 and Home Master TMAFC-ERP can remove chloramines and other  contaminants. They excel in the removal of TDS, as both claim an NSF certification.

The Differences Between the Waterdrop and Home Master

We compare these two products in seven categories

  1.  Water Flow
  2.  Filter Life
  3.  Water Tank
  4.  Water Wastage
  5.  Smart Design
  6.  Price

1.  Water Flow

Home Master RCC7 only has a water flow of 75 GPD, which means you can only get 0.05 gallons of water per minute. The water flow is not satisfying.

Waterdrop G3, as a new-generation RO system, uses composite filters to significantly reduce the number of filters. Besides, the smart filter life indicators makes it much easier for customers to change the filters on time. The twist-and-turn replacement can be done in just 3 seconds, and you can do this all by yourself without asking plumber’s assistance.

2.  Filter Life

Home Master RO system has multiple filters, leading to complicated lines and difficult installation. Too many filters mean you have to remember different expiration dates in order to keep the water pure and clean.

Waterdrop G3, as a new-generation RO system, uses composite filters to significantly reduce the number of filters. Besides, the smart filter life indicators makes it much easier for customers to change the filters on time. The twist-and-turn replacement can be done in just 3 seconds, and you can do this all by yourself without asking plumber’s assistance.

3.  Water Tank

Home Master TMAFC-ERP comes with a very large water tank for water storage. Water tanks are usually seen in a traditional RO to compensate for their low water flow relative to the G3. The large storage of water will get you through a few days if there are intermissions of water supply, but tanks can also collect and give room for bacteria and viruses to grow.

Waterdrop G3 leaves out the tank in its design. This will prevent the second pollution as well as save up to 70% of under sink space.

4.  Water Wastage

For Home Master, the perfect water technology improves system efficiency with a non-electric permeate pump. Wastewater will be reduced by up to 80% as well as an increase in water production by up to 50%.

Waterdrop G3 system has a drain ratio of 1:1, this means that it will produce one cup of wastewater for one cup of pure water. This method means that it saves water by 300% compared to a more traditional RO.

5.  Smart Design

By no means is the Home Master RO a smart RO filtration system, however, Waterdrop G3 is. G3 has a set of useful functions that will make your life easier. The automatic flushing and holiday mode enable the cease operations if the system has not been used over a period of time. The G3 also boasts a TDS display and faucet with a light ring that indicates the filter life status using different colors. If you wish to know more about the differences between a traditional RO and a smart RO, then check out our blog.

6.  Price

The Price of a Home Master TMAFC-ERP is $261.11, with a filter change cost of $79 every year.

Waterdrop G3 is $549, and an additional $200 every two years for filter changes.

If you are seeking a filter with the same great filtration system and smart design, but at a less steep asking price, then Waterdrop G2 Under-sink Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System is a perfect fit for you.

  • Enjoy every drop of pure, crisp water with the help of two filters and five layers.
  • G2 also boasts a tankless build, so you can save on under-sink space while preventing the second pollution.
  • This RO system offers a fast water flow rate of up to 400 GPD using a combination of an internal pump and efficient filters. Pour a refreshing cup of filtered water in twelve seconds, saving time while satisfying your thirst.
  • Reduced leakage with the aid of an integrated design of the electrical water circuit. Reduces noise with the use of an airtight housing, as well as a faster and easier way to replace filters.
  • Replace filters in three seconds with the twist-and-pull design. Installing Waterdrop G2 RO system takes less than thirty minutes.
  • Saves water by 300% compared to a traditional system with the 1:1 wastewater to pure water ratio that is the same as with G3.

Sum it up!

The different advantages of the two RO systems depend on what you need the most. Home Master has a fairly low cost, and its filtration performance can meet the basic standard of drinking water. Waterdrop G3, however, stands out with its fast water flow, tankless and smart design, and low drain ratio. If you are seeking an intelligent machine that monitors TDS and filter life for you, then G3 system is the obvious choice.
