There are different types of home water filtration systems available in today’s market, but one of the emerging popular options is a reverse osmosis system. However, many people are unsure of what an RO filter is and the benefits of using this type of water filtration system. Simply put, unfiltered water is pushed through a reverse osmosis membrane (semi permeable membrane) that removes impurities, contaminants and unwanted dissolved solids. RO water has an amazingly clean taste that you’ll notice right away. No more chlorine taste from treated tap water. If you live in an area with poor water quality, it is highly recommended to switch to RO water filtration. Upgrade to a reverse osmosis system and remove those impurities from your water supply.
You may be asking yourself, “If water purification products all do the same thing, why are there so many options?”. Clean water is clean water right? Well not exactly, the key difference between water softeners and reverse osmosis filtration is that an RO membrane (semi permeable membrane) completely filters out water contaminants (dissolved minerals and heavy metals like lead, arsenic, fluoride, iron, mercury, sodium and many more) from the feed water while a softener removes and addresses issues caused by hard water, via ionization. The water purification process occurs as the water goes through the reverse osmosis membrane. Both water filtration systems aid in reducing the hardness level and TDS level (total dissolved solid). A reverse osmosis water purification system is perfect in areas like Southern California, where there are hard water problems and the tap/drinking water can have a chlorine taste depending on what region you’re in because it is extremely concentrated with other unwanted minerals and contaminants. Many of our customers immediately notice the difference of using treated water from our reverse osmosis filter systems.
Many water companies will claim that water softeners or a reverse osmosis filter system will deliver 100% pure water, this is simply not a fact. From a technical perspective, water softeners and reverse osmosis systems help reduce the hardness of water significantly and greatly improve the quality; however no company can claim to provide 100% pure water. While many people debate whether to get an RO water system, water filter, or water softener, we feel using a combination of these for your household is the best overall water treatment system solution.
