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 a Reverse Osmosis water filter is and the benefits of using this type of water treatment system. Simply put, unfiltered water is pushed through a reverse osmosis membrane (semi permeable membrane) that removes impurities, contaminants and unwanted dissolved solids.
After the dissolved contaminants are filtered and removed, the freshly filtered water, or permeate, flows to the storage tank, where it is held until needed. 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 RO unit system and remove those impurities from your water supply.
What are some benefits of a reverse osmosis system?
As a water filtration system, along with producing the treated water, an RO system can filter out harmful contaminants like:
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 (total dissolved solids, 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. Water treatment systems come in all shapes and sizes including ones with carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, and more. However, in our opinion, a whole house water filtration solution that incorporates both an RO filter and a water softener is ideal for the best quality water.
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 water/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 RO systems.
Many water companies will claim that water softeners or a reverse osmosis water filter system will deliver 100% pure water, this is simply not a fact. From a technical perspective, water softeners and RO 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. Experience the difference of filtered water in your home or utilize our commercial RO system for your business! Please note, replacement filters are needed roughly every 18 – 24 months for reverse osmosis water filters as part of routine maintenance.
