Do you want clean, delicious water but aren’t sure that your current water supply will deliver? A Reverse Osmosis drinking water system is a great option. How does Reverse Osmosis work? Reverse osmosis pushes water through a membrane, eliminating most water contaminants and leaving you with clean and great-tasting drinking water. All from the comfort of your home!
What is Reverse Osmosis Water?
Water is naturally soft as it falls as rain. But when that soft rainwater travels through the ground and makes its way to our pipes, it picks up different minerals like calcium, magnesium, and lime, turning it into what we know as “hard” water. Hard water can cause limescale to build up inside plumbing pipes, cause laundry to be gray and dingy even when it’s clean and leave rings of soap scum around tubs that are almost impossible to clean. Worst of all, hard water shortens the life of appliances that are dependent on water such as the dishwasher, the coffee maker and the ice machine in the refrigerator. Reverse Osmosis is a technologically advanced and innovative filtration process that reduces contaminants like arsenic, sodium, chloride, fluoride and radium, as well as harmful microorganisms in water. The process involves forcing the water through a very fine, semi-permeable membrane which only allows the water to pass through and catches all the impurities.
Reverse Osmosis System for Home
The Reverse Osmosis filter has pores that are as small as 0.0001 micron, which means it can even remove tiny particles such as viruses while letting the much smaller water molecules pass through. A Reverse Osmosis filter also blocks bacteria, which are much larger than viruses. Reverse Osmosis water contains no parasites that can cause havoc to your digestive tract.
Energy Benefits of Reverse Osmosis
Besides removing contaminants and hard minerals from the water, a Reverse Osmosis system uses less energy than other systems to clean and purify water. This keeps down energy bills. Reverse Osmosis systems don’t take up a great amount of space. They can be installed directly under your sink, or installed to treat all water that enters your home.
Maintaining a Reverse Osmosis system is also easy! The only thing that needs to be done after the system is installed is to replace the filters.
With a Reverse Osmosis system is that you can directly control the levels of purification. Why would you want to do this? It’s actually good for some minerals to pass through the filters and end up in the drinking water. Though calcium and magnesium contribute to limescale, they are necessary for good health, especially the health of growing children. So a customer can have one level of filtering at the kitchen sink, another in the bathroom and another at the washing machine.
Contaminants such as copper or iron can give water a bad taste as well as discolor it. Nothing tastes better than water that is clean and clear.
Another Reverse Osmosis benefit is that the system not only saves money on energy bills but it makes all those bottles of purified water a thing of the past. A 48 pack of bottled water may not cost much, but it adds up if a homeowner has to buy several packs every single week for their family. Not to mention lowering the carbon footprint on the environment.
