Those who understand the importance of clean drinking water that’s contaminant free eventually arrive at an investigation of a reverse osmosis home system for improved health.
The popularity of home reverse osmosis water dispensers in recent years is due to the increase awarenes of local municipal water quality and the desire for higher quality water for:
- Ice Making
More and more people are becoming concerned about the chemical contaminants in their water and are no longer willing to accept it, especially for human consumption. The question then becomes, what is the best solution for the health and well-being of the family in a water filter for home use?
Why Reverse Osmosis?
The question of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water comes to mind because of its evolution as the defacto standard for high quality industrial water where the removal of minerals contaminants is crucial, as in traditional printing and photo processing. But, even so, for drinking water home water filters you also want to remove chemical contaminants.
This is why for human consumption, water travels through a pre-filter and an activated carbon filter prior to the RO filter mechanism, then stored in a short-term storage tank so that purified water is always immediately available right at your sink.
This multi-stage reverse osmosis filtration system will give you the highest quality drinking water on the market.
So… What is Reverse Osmosis?
Typically called “ultra filtration” in the industry, it is literally the top of the line in water filtration and treatment technology. RO has been around for quite a while, initially as a means of desalinating ocean water. It has become the most comprehensive and thorough system for filtering water for purified drinking water and commercial or industrial water filtration applications. It’s even used by most beverage plants whose business is bottled water.
Today, this advanced technology is available for home water filter use for the purpose of drinking, mixing beverages, ice making and cooking.
How Does It Work?
Basically, it’s a system whereby the water molecules are forced through a sub-micron-level, semi-permeable membrane through water pressure. These membranes are layered and wrapped around a central tube in a spiral wound membrane module. The modules made for home reverse osmosis water are relatively small and taken together with the other inline filters and the storage tank still fit under the typical kitchen sink.
Under pressure, water is forced through the membrane separating the water molecules from the unwanted contaminants. These unwanted substances are automatically sent down the drain as waste water and therefore don’t build up in the system as with most other filtering methods. The membrane stays clean for a very long time with a minimum amount of maintenance.Call 303.922.4383 today, to determine the best equipment for your home.
