Are you concerned about the presence of contaminants in your water supply? It is possible to find out what chemicals, bacteria, and other unwanted substances are coming from your tap. One option is reverse osmosis, which can provide clean, fresh water at your home. You can save money and get fresh water right from your tap.
All The Way Down to The Micron
The Reserve Osmosis system is made up of a number of tubes and filters that purify your water from almost all kinds of impurities. You will enjoy water that is better tasting, better smelling, better looking, and more important better for you.
It is quite simple. The reverse osmosis system works by filtering water through a membrane then clean water flows on to your faucet, while the contaminants go down the drain. This technology is used to convert salt water from the ocean to potable drinking water.
The average membrane can remove anything greater than.001 microns. Some membranes go smaller. This is small enough to filter out one blood cell, bacteria, or virus. Reverse osmosis is able to protect you from particles that are less or more visible to the naked eye. Conventional filters can only filter out particles that are visible to the naked eyes.
Are You Tired of Drinking Bottled Water?
The reserve osmosis system is usually located under the sink. It filters your water as it reaches the faucet. The process of filtering water can take a while. It may produce between one and three gallons per hour depending on which model. The systems come with a storage tank to ensure that you have clean water at your fingertips when you need it.
The only maintenance required for a system is to replace the filter every so often. Although the exact lifespan of most systems varies, they can handle between 1500 and 5000 Gallons of water. Depending on how often you use your kitchen faucet, this could provide drinking water for several years.
The exact reverse osmosis system you will need depends on the water pressure, temperature, and the speed at which you want it to work. For more information on reverse osmosis and help installing a module onto your sink, consult a professional plumber.
