        Frequently Asked Questions

        Is U1 tested by a third party?

        What are the dimensions of the U1?

        9.5 Inches Wide, 17 Inches High, 19 Inches Deep, 26 lbs.

        Dimensions with turntable(optional, not included): Turntable base - 21" round, Height 18.5"

        How long does it take to heat water to boiling temperature?

        U1 uses instant-hot technology. Hot water is immediately available even at boiling temperatures, limited only by a total system max volume of ½ gallon.

        How long does it take to cool water, what is cold water volume, and can cold water temperature be adjusted?

        It takes about 15 minutes to cool 15 ounces of water at a time to 59F/15C. When the cold water button is pressed, U1 will display “COOL” once the water temperature has reached maximum cold or “PREP” if cooling is still in progress. No need to wait for the cooling process to complete; cold water can be dispensed at any time. Cold water temperature is not adjustable.

        Can the water cooler be turned off for energy-saving purposes?

        Yes, press and hold the “cold” water button for 5 seconds to turn off or turn the water cooler back on.

        What negative ORP(Oxidation-reduction potential) readings can I expect from U1 hydrogen-enriched water?

        During our internal testing, we got negative ORP readings from -330 to -347 on average. Individual results may vary.

        Can the hydrogen function be turned off?

        Yes, hydrogen production can be turned off or on with a press of a “hydrogen” button.

        How much filtered water does U1 hold?

        About ½ gallon of filtered water at a time. U1 filters ½ gallon of water in under 7 minutes. Twice as fast as Zero Installation Purifier. 

        What is the pure water to waste water ratio?

        1 Gallon of water is loaded into the system. U1 makes ½ gallon of pure water and another ½ of a gallon of wastewater with all the impurities in it. Since wastewater contains all the impurities, it’s NOT recommended for consumption. However, it can be used to water plants, rinse vegetables, etc.

        Does the wastewater mix with the intake water and is filtered over and over as it’s common with other systems?

        No, all the wastewater is deposited into a separate section of the supply tank and is no longer used for pure water production.

        How often do the filters need to be changed and how much do they cost?

        Please refer to the section below for all details on the replacement filters.

        How do I order replacement filters?

        If you sign up for our filter subscription program during checkout, the replacement filters will be delivered to you every 12 months automatically. Otherwise, replacement filters can be ordered on our website or over the phone.

        Does U1 use proprietary filters available only from RKIN and reseller partners?

        Yes, we designed our own filters to make filter changes as easy as possible with ¼ turn to remove and leak-free features.

        Does U1 remove the "XYZ" contaminant?

        3rd party tested for the reduction of TDS, Fluoride, Lead, PFOA/PFOS, Hexavalent Chromium, and Trivalent Chromium.

        U1 uses a multi-stage reverse osmosis technology. Reverse osmosis is one of the best ways to purify water when it comes to cost per gallon, speed, and purity of the water. Undersink reverse osmosis water filters have been around for decades and have been extensively studied by the scientific community.

        Because of U1’s unique design, preventing back-pressure within the RO membrane, it performs as well or better than most high-quality under-sink reverse osmosis systems.

        The second stage - Carbon Block pre-filter alone tackles a multitude of contaminants even before they get to the reverse osmosis membrane.

        But we understand that you may want to do your own research. So the fastest way to get an answer is to do an online search for "reverse osmosis removes XYZ" and review scientific papers. Replace "XYZ" with a contaminant of your choice. Or you can always contact our customer support here.

        Does U1 work with 220V electric outlets?

        No, the current version is suitable for 100V-120V electric outlets only - USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, etc. However, 3rd party 220V to 120V voltage converters can be used. Must be rated for 1500 W continuous power.

        Is it possible to switch to metric measuring units?

        U1 will only display imperial units for temperature - Fahrenheit and ounces for water volume.

        What if I have questions or need support?

        You can always call us at 1-800-803-4551 Monday through Friday, 9 AM-5 PM EST, or submit a request here.

        Good product could be excellent with some software updates

        Had the U1 for a couple weeks not and I am very easy with it , the water flavor is great, and being able to have temp settings including cold pleases all people in my household, it is a big appliance fortunately I do have the space in my counter for it and the turn table. With this being said, having the choice to use mL and C° would be amazing and easy to program, also just being able to push a button and get water instead of always using big cup and small cup would be good too .

        Refurbished RKIN U1

        Glad to have purchased this system. Being refurbished I wasn't sure in what condition it would be. Upon opening found the appliance a bit wet and filters pre installed so I wasn't sure if at least the filters were new. I reached out with a customer representative and she had explained they were indeed new. After going through the steps of rinsing the system. I was completely satisfied with how everything work for the exception of the waste water. There should be an easy drain spout and that water should be recycled through the system somehow. Suggestion is to include a syphon to drain the waste water or add a drain spout to the tank.
