If you are concerned about the safety of your drinking water,  consider a reverse osmosis water filtration system in Sugar Land for your home. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg licensed plumbers can install a reverse osmosis system for you, and can provide the maintenance required throughout the years of its service. Reverse osmosis is really a simple system that provides superior results. Lets look at how the system works.

Reverse osmosis is a means of purifying water using a semipermeable membrane to filter undesirable contaminates out. The result is pure, clean water for your use.

The Benefits of a Reverse Osmosis System

A few of the benefits a reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration system in Sugar Land offers includes:

  • Water and ice that are 99% contaminant-free, and odor free
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Can be installed out of sight
  • The RO system can remove a large number of contaminates including arsenic, nitrates, sodium, lead, copper, chromium, radium, fluoride, bacteria, cyst  and some viruses. Essentially, any contaminate larger than a water molecule is removed from the water provided.
  • Multi-stage RO systems filter out chemicals, chlorine, pesticides and many other contaminants.

Reverse Osmosis and Water Softeners

Water softeners are designed to remove minerals from hard water. The minerals in hard water can cause plumbing problems, dull hair and itchy skin among other issues. A water softener takes care of it through the process of ion exchange. In this process, hard water minerals are exchanged for sodium or potassium molecules.

While most people use sodium, not everyone cares for the taste. Furthermore, persons who are on sodium restricted diets are often unable to drink water treated with sodium in a water softening system. A reverse osmosis system will remove the sodium from the water, enabling those on sodium restrictions to drink the water safely.

Whole House Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System

The whole house reverse osmosis water filtration system often offers multi stage filtration for the cleanest, purest water possible. The first stage typically removes rust, silt, soil and other contaminates. The next stage, typically activated carbon, removes odor and chlorine from water. Multi stage systems also often include a carbon block filter, similar but more effective than activated carbon filtration. The carbon filters themselves remove a large number of contaminates that may include chemicals, pesticides and other toxins depending on the filter involved. The reverse osmosis membrane removes the majority of any contaminates remaining. In addition, multi stage systems may use multiple carbon filters and RO membranes in a variety of pore sizes. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg for additional information regarding the variety of water filtration system in Sugar Land that we offer for your home or business.
