What are the Pros and Cons of Reverse Osmosis

When you’re weighing the decision whether or not to invest in a reverse osmosis drinking water system, it is important to know the advantages as well as the disadvantages. When it comes to our products, we want you to know exactly what you’re in for – no surprises. Shopping would be a whole lot easier if everyone did that, don’t you think?
Reverse osmosis is a very common way to filter your home’s drinking water, especially if you suspect contamination or other issues. It’s one of the more affordable options and relatively simple to maintain. It’s important to take control of the safety and quality of your drinking water yourself; you cannot always rely on government officials or anyone else to ensure that your water is safe. If you are thinking about installing an RO system, here’s what you need to know before you buy.

The Pros

  • Reverse osmosis can remove 95-99% of total dissolved solids TDS, as well as chlorine, fluoride and other impurities.
  • Better-tasting food starts with better water. It is also a better choice to serve your family. Many of our current customers admit that their family members have begun to drink more water and consume less soda or sugary drinks.
  • RO systems do not consume energy, making them energy efficient. Yay!
  • These products can simply produce high-quality water for pennies on the gallon. It’s way cheaper than buying bottled water all the time – and way more environmentally responsible. Yay again!
  • The maintenance is pretty simple. Some intricate systems can be difficult to maintain, keep clean or to repair but our systems are easy and we can help. You’ll know when it’s time to change out the filters and membranes according to your system’s manual.

The Cons

  • There can be some clogging. At times, the tiny pores in the RO system can clog from the impurities if it isn’t maintained as it should be. Even common chlorine can damage an RO system. Maintenance is very important.
  • Takes patience and time because reverse osmosis works through the use of household water pressure and it does require time to go through the membrane as well as refill the tank.
  • You’ll need to replace the water filters. Though it isn’t super expensive, it is an ongoing maintenance item.

It’s pretty obvious that the pros beat the cons with this one. Join the millions of other people who have chosen reverse osmosis water filtration systems and are enjoying great-tasting and safe drinking water.
