SimPure Y7P-BW UV

Countertop Reverse Osmosis
This product was purchased at full price by


The SimPure Y7P-BW UV is a great little RO filter for apartment dwellers with 1-2 people living in the space. Replacement filters are also easy to buy and change yourself. It runs pretty quiet, and can fill larger water bottles if you pull away the magnetic drip tray. One downside is the limited amount of water you can get from the largest volume setting.

Full Review

The SimPure Y7P-BW UV is a standard arrangement countertop reverse osmosis filter that does not need any installation. All you need is a power source and a water source to fill the tank, and then to dump the leftover water from the RO process. The machine is meant to sit on a countertop or other table, with the tank lifting up and out of the rear of the machine. 

Overall this is a well made machine with two stages of filtration (carbon media + reverse osmosis) and then a final UV sterilizing step for the fresh water tank. Because this machine uses a fresh water tank with a separate low-pressure delivery pump, the UV can be very effective in keeping bacteria out of the fresh water tank as long as it stays plugged in. 

The user interface is simple and makes sense, it has flush functions and filter life indicators. The indicators can also be reset easily when you replace the filters. 

Some common complaints for this filter are that the tank can be heavy and hard to remove from the back of a countertop, especially if the user is of a smaller stature, or if there is a low cabinet above the machine. Remember since the tank is in the rear, and it holds 5L, it weighs about 11lbs when full, and you need to lift it out by reaching to the back of the counter.

The older versions of the machine had a clear feed tank, which is not a good thing because it allows light in, and light + fresh water is perfect for bacteria growth. The new versions use a black tank which is the best choice for this device. 

One gripe of mine specifically is that this machine can’t refill larger water bottles in one go, you must push the largest dispense volume setting multiple times. If your water bottle fits under the machine it’s not as much of an issue, but many taller bottles need to be held under it for the full dispense duration, which was 1 minute and 17 seconds for 1L from my testing. 

The replacement filters are very easy to change, normally get replaced every 6 months and are available only from SimPure via their website or Amazon. There are no open-market filters for this machine as far as I know. 

The SimPure Y7  is one of the better machines on the market. However SimPure has chosen to use the SGS Laboratory for testing using the NSF/ANSI 58, EPA 537 and GB/T 5750.4-2006 standards. While SGS might be a reputable lab in China, it is not one of the labs recognized in the US to certify machines to US standards. I would like to see SimPure invest in testing for US consumers at NSF directly, or via other certified US labs like IAPMO or WQA.
