RO Water – One of the things about Reverse Osmosis water, or RO water for short, is that it removes a lot of impurities, metals and even parasites from your water. Many people ask, “How is it that our treated tap water still has so much bad stuff in it?” There are many reasons for this!
How Springfield, Mo. Water Gets Polluted
- Households all over Springfield, Mo. and surrounding areas have old piping.
- Tap water is treated with chlorine which, over time, can have adverse health effects on people drinking it.
- Chemical waste from factories often leaks into our groundwater. While tap water is treated, it doesn’t remove all of the chemical waste.
- Pesticides from farmland leak into our groundwater. While pollutants can be either broken down over time or diluted with more water to the point that it is deemed safe for human consumption, the pollutant is still there.
The good news is that an RO water system can take care of all of these things while giving you safe, clean drinking water in your home or office!
4 RO Water Facts
- RO water can remove lead from your drinking water.
Many government studies have found that lead in your drinking water has many adverse side effects – especially in pregnant women and in young children. In fact, it can be linked to reduced cognition, renal dysfunction in adults which is dysfunction of your kidneys and can even affect neurodevelopmental and behavior in children.
- RO water can remove parasites from your drinking water.
I don’t know about you, but the thought of drinking parasites makes us cringe. Some parasites are so resilient they survive even after drinking water is treated with chlorine. Parasites can have a negative impact on your health including vomiting, diarrhea, stomach aches, and can even cause fevers. RO water, as opposed to adding chemicals in your drinking water, takes out harmful parasites and other additives.
- RO water can take chloride out of your drinking water.
Water with high levels of chloride can damage plants, give drinking water an unpleasant taste, and over a long period of time, can add free radicals to our body. Free radicals are carcinogenic. In fact, some studies show that chlorine is linked with heart disease and hardening of the arteries. Dr. Joseph Price wrote a book on this subject in the 1960s called Coronaries/Cholesterol/Chlorine and concluded that one cause of atherosclerosis (which results in strokes and heart attacks) is chlorine.
- RO water saves you money!
Believe it or not, RO water costs pennies on the dollar per gallon of water. This is way more efficient than purchasing bottled water from the store or from a water bottle delivery service in Springfield, Mo.! RO water also helps the environment by reducing plastic bottle use which are filling up our landfills and finding their way into our oceans.
With regular maintenance, an RO water system can last virtually forever. It is a process by which your tap water goes through a semi-permeable membrane which removes impurities and salt from your drinking water.
