Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration

Reverse Osmosis is a process where water pressure is employed to force water through a semi-permeable membrane. When water is forced against the reverse osmosis membrane surface, the dissolved materials are repelled, while the water molecules are diffused through the membrane molecule by molecule, forming purer water on the other side. This "reverse osmosis" method is a popular method for the reduction of contaminants in water.  

Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration

What is a reverse osmosis system? How does it work?

Reverse osmosis water filtration is a chemical-free, economical way to improve the taste and odor of your drinking water. As mentioned above, an RO system produces clean, filtered water by forcing tap water through a semi permeable membrane and the filtered is directed to a storage tank. The impurities that are separated from the water molecules are flushed down the drain. A reverse osmosis system consists of both pre and post filters which add additional contaminant removal. To learn more about the reverse osmosis process, we provide details here.  


My water tastes bad? What may be the cause and can it be corrected?

If you want to improve the taste and smell of your drinking and cooking water, a POU (point of use) system installed at your kitchen sink is a great choice. Reverse osmosis water filter systems are an economical, simple solution. Reverse Osmosis can remove lead, iron, fluoride, nitrates and dozens of other contaminants. In addition, an RO system can greatly improve the taste and the quality of your water by removing chlorine and other offensive tastes.


If you elect to treat the whole house, a system that is installed at the point where the water enters the home POE (point of entry) system, then your first step is to identify what is causing the problem (have a water analysis done). Once you have identified what is causing the taste problem you can then research what type of water treatment equipment is designed to address your specific needs.


Which type of water treatment or filtration system should I purchase?

There are a number of resources available to help you make a good buying decision, including researching on the internet. We would caution you to never ever buy a product that is sold to you via scare or alarm tactics, and check with several sources before you buy to make sure you're getting a high-quality system or replacement part.


You might also consider getting water tested or find the report to know exactly what contaminants are in your water. If you receive water from a municipal water supplier, then you can review your local "Consumer Confidence Report" (CRC) to learn what is in your water. Each year, public water suppliers are required to provided a CRC. If you are on a private well, you can send off for a water analysis from a certified laboratory.
