What is a Reverse Osmosis System?
Reverse Osmosis (RO) water is the final barrier treatment solution to your water quality problems. RO water is recommended for drinking and cooking, even if you have a water softener in your home or business.
A reverse osmosis system can eliminate even more contaminants giving you purified water at your tap. It is compact in size and can be easily installed under your kitchen sink. They can also be installed in the basement, to your ice maker in your refrigerator AND for pet bowls.
RO water filters will also save you money on buying water bottles and gallons at the grocery store as well as water bottle delivery. PLUS, you will be saving the environment.
How does a Reverse Osmosis System work?
The process works by forcing water under great pressure against a semi-permeable membrane, where water molecules form a barrier that allows other water molecules to pass through while excluding most contaminants. Maintenance involves the replacement of the RO membrane cartridge every two or three years and the carbon and sediment pre-filters every six to twelve months. RO also incorporates an activated carbon filter, which can provide added treatment for the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) not treated by the membrane itself.
