In this review, you will learn all you need to know about the Brondell H2O+ Circle RO water filter system. What sets the system apart from its competition is that it’s much more economic a.k.a. water saving than most conventional reverse osmosis systems.
It features a 4-stage filtration mechanism to provide nice, clean tasting water.
Brondell H2O+ Circle
|Daily Water Limit:||57 GPD|
|NSF Standard:||42, 53, 58, 372|
The maximum pressure at which this filter system can operate is 120 psi. The required minimum pressure is 40 psi. You want to make sure to stay within that range to avoid leaks on the one hand and have adequate water flow on the other hand.
There are the 3 aspects about the Brondell H2O+ Circle that we’d like to point out:
Other than that, the system is able to process up to 57 gallons of filtered water per day, which is impressive. At the same time, water tank capacity is a mere 1.6 gallons (6 liters). You might want to remember that when you need a lot of water at once. The good news is that the tank refills in as little as 1 hour.

Many of today’s RO systems are bulky. They take up quite some space under your kitchen sink or in the basement and require more effort to install than most other types of water filters. The Brondell H2O+ Circle is not much different – at least as far as installation goes.
You have to drain a hole in your sink or countertop for the extra faucet. You have to install the feed water valve. And you have to connect the wastewater line to the drain. If you feel comfortable doing these things, then there’s no need to call a plumber. You need all the required tool, of course, but all the bits and pieces are contained in the package, including illustrated installation instructions.

This Brondell RO system is easy to maintain, thanks to the quick change twist and seal filters. When the LED of the filter change indicator starts to flash red instead of blue, it’s time to change the filters and reset the indicator afterwards by replacing its battery (a new battery comes with each filter replacement set).
Here is what you need to do:
FYI: The filter change indicator does not measure TDS, but time and water usage. It will start to flash after 6 months or 475 gallons – whichever comes first.
What are the average lifetimes of the filters/membrane?
Please be aware that product lifetimes can vary depending on how much water you use on a daily basis and its condition prior to the filtration. Water with high levels of hardness minerals/TDS require you to replace the components more frequently.
Average annual replacement costs: Not exactly cheap, but within the normal range for modular filters.

Here is what we don’t like:
Water saving and space saving – these are the main selling points of the Brondell H2O+ Circle RO water filter system. NSF certifications yes, but it’s not the most effective at removing contaminants. All in all, it’s a thumbs up from us.
Our verdict: 4.5 out of 5 stars!
The Brondell is best for people who insist on NSF-certified RO water purification.
