Are you thinking about investing in a water filtration system for your home or business? If so, then you should strongly consider installing a Reverse Osmosis (RO) system. What is Reverse Osmosis? It’s where sediments, chemicals, and hard minerals are removed from your water supply via a porous membrane. Water molecules can pass through the RO filter and the majority of bacteria and micro-organisms cannot.
An RO system ensures that you have a virtually limitless supply of clean and healthy water throughout your home. RO systems will eliminate any unpleasant odors emanating from your water supply and also greatly enhance its taste. It has been proven that RO systems are the most effective solution to eliminating harmful contaminants from your water supply.
Clean and Safe Drinking Water
There are several factors that can contribute to a contaminated water supply, such as a faulty plumbing system that allows for the sediment and harmful contaminants to enter your tap water. In many cases, contaminated water smells bad and tastes bad, and this can turn you off from drinking any water that comes from your faucet. RO technology will remedy any distastefulness in your water supply.
RO filtration is better for you than bottled water because it offers greater protection from contaminants and hard minerals. Most studies show that RO systems effectively remove 99% of contaminants in most municipal water supplies. In addition to desalinating your water, RP filtration will also remove bacteria, particulates, pyrogens, and lead/various other pathogens.
Improving the Smell and Taste of Your Water
Without a reliable supply of clean and uncontaminated water, it becomes a lot more difficult to host a party at your home. You want to ensure that your guests have access to water that is free of sulfur, magnesium, and any other hard minerals or sediments. RO filtration will remove those contaminants and greatly improve the taste and smell of your drinking water.
You No Longer Need to rely on Bottled Water
Most homeowners will opt to buy bottled water because it offers a convenient alternative to obtaining clean and safe drinking water. The problem with relying on bottled water, however, is that it harms our environment. According to experts, around 8 million tons of plastic will end up in the ocean, and a lot of it is the material used for bottled water. Typically, bottled water is not properly recycled and this is how it ends up in natural eco-systems in the first place. This is why RO systems have an incredibly beneficial effect on the environment: you have an endless supply of filtered water and you also greatly decrease the amount of plastic that winds up in the ocean.
Saving Money and Time
Believe it or not, you will save a great deal of money with an RO system. This is because you will not have to make all of those trips to the supermarket to purchase bottled water (this also helps you save a lot of time as well). There is no need to spend so much time and money on an unreliable alternative to supplying yourself with clean water.
RO systems make a lot of things easier for you in terms of going about your everyday life. RO filtration provides you with clean water that you can use for cooking and cleaning, and it also ensures that any faucet in your home will dispense clean water any time you need it.
Most RO systems are also energy-efficient, which means that you won’t have to use nearly as much energy as you would with other filtration systems so it greatly reduces wastefulness. This will also have a positive impact on your monthly energy bills.
Varying Levels of Purification
There are actually seven levels of purification with RO systems, and you get to choose how thoroughly you want to filter your tap water. There are many different RO systems that are on the market, so the 7-step process will vary according to the installation that you purchase. In each stage, you can expect some kind of removal process to take place as your water filters through the semi-permeable membranes.
Ease of Maintenance
Every six months or so you should perform routine maintenance on your RO system, but this is very easy to do. We recommend that you change out the filter and also clean out the inside of it. Performing regular maintenance on your RO system will prevent it from becoming ineffective and prolong its lifespan. The last thing you want to do is have to replace your RO system when it can be costly to install them in the first place.
There are many reasons why you are looking to install an RO system. Whether you want to protect the environment, save money, or ensure that you have virtually infinite access to safe and uncontaminated drinking water, then an RO system is the right choice for you. Water plays a huge role in our everyday lives, and with RO filtration, you are guaranteeing that you and your family will be drinking clean and healthy for some years to come.
