Having a Reverse Osmosis system is great for those who understand that our tap water, though it has been treated, still has many contaminants in it. In fact, some of the contaminants include chromium – a cancer-causing chemical! This is where having a reverse osmosis system, or RO system, comes in handy. The process of reverse osmosis removes impurities from water while reducing the risk of contamination. In essence, it is a process of filtering your water through a semi-permeable membrane.
While Aquasani has a plethora of different water purification systems, this blog is specifically on RO systems!
How Does a Reverse Osmosis System Work?
Reverse Osmosis is a process of taking water and forcing it through a semi-permeable membrane. The semi-permeable membrane has holes that are so small, only water can go through. This removes contaminants such as dissolved salts, mercury, calcium, iron, asbestos, and lead to name a few. In essence, Reverse Osmosis is a great way to purify your drinking water, so you have access to fresh, clean water.
The Benefits of Having a Reverse Osmosis System
Reverse Osmosis Water Is Cheaper Than Buying Bottled Water (And Healthier Too).
RO water costs pennies on the dollar while bottled water is a LOT more expensive. According to the IBWA, the average wholesale price of a gallon of bottled water was $1.11. On top of that, the plastic contained in bottles can begin disintegrating – especially if they are kept in a heated environment or kept frozen or if they are reused. This can release carcinogenic compounds and/or dioxins into your bottled water.
Reverse Osmosis Water Is Better For Cooking.
The impurities and contaminants in tap water effects the taste of your water. Many people claim that cooking with RO water makes their food, coffee and other drinks made with water better.
Reverse Osmosis Water Produces Clear Ice Cubes.
Many people also observe that when they make the switch to RO water, their ice cubes are clear. Tap water produces foggy/cloudy ice cubes because of all the impurities in it.
Reverse Osmosis Water Tastes Better, According To Many People.
Removing the impurities from tap water produces fresh clean water which is tastier to drink. After passing through the semi-permeable membrane, RO water is often passed through carbon filters which act as a sort of “polishing” mechanism which helps remove lingering odors and/or tastes from the water.
A Reverse Osmosis System Uses a Low Amount of Energy.
Reverse Osmosis uses water pressure to operate.
Maintenance is Cheap and Easy.
A typical reverse osmosis system requires maintenance every six months or so depending on the amount of water you use. Aquasani LLC, based out of Springfield, Mo., has hassle-free maintenance programs which are very competitive and affordable.
It’s a Space-Saver!
Many RO systems fit easily under your kitchen sink which saves space on your countertops!
