Is a reverse osmosis filter system right for me?
Reverse osmosis is a
water filtration process that can be used to provide cleaner drinking water. During this
process, dissolved solids that are commonly found in tap water, like salt,
sulfates, calcium and chlorine, are removed from the water by pushing
them through a membrane. Installing a reverse osmosis system in your home
or commercial business can have numerous benefits, so we encourage you
to learn more by
scheduling a free water analysis.
The benefits of installing a reverse osmosis filter system include:
- It eliminates excess salt from your drinking water
- It converts impure water into clean drinking water
- It improves the odor and taste of your water
- It removes toxins and pollutants from your water
- It is cost-effective and requires little maintenance
How does reverse osmosis work?
When you install a
reverse osmosis system in your Los Angeles County home or business, you can benefit from endless
pure drinking water. This process works by using a high pressure pump
to force the water across a semi-permeable reverse osmosis membrane, leaving
most dissolved salts behind. About 95% to 99% of these salts will be removed
by a reverse osmosis filtration system.
This process also removes more than just salt. It is capable of removing
particles, colloids, organics, bacteria and pyrogens from your tap water—leaving
you with water that is not only purer, but also healthier for you and
your family to drink. Reverse osmosis is also highly effective at treating
brackish, surface and ground water for large and small flow applications,
which can benefit business owners.
Simply put, the basic steps involved in reverse osmosis include:
- Unfiltered tap water enters the reverse osmosis system
- Impurities are rejected at the membrane surface
- Water pressure forces molecules through the membrane
- The newly purified water is sent directly to your faucet
- Impurities are sent to a drain underneath your sink
Benefits of Installing a Reverse Osmosis System
In addition to providing purer drinking water in your home or business,
a reverse osmosis filter system is also more eco-friendly, cost-effective
and energy efficient than other filtration systems. You get pure water
when you need it. You won’t need a holding tank or storage unit,
and this system consumes very little power—saving you money on monthly
energy bills. It is also low maintenance and easy to use. If you are interested
