How Does Reverse Osmosis Work?
You might remember the word osmosis from your school days. The term describes the process of molecules passing through a semi-permeable membrane from a less concentrated area into a more concentrated one. Reverse osmosis takes advantage of this process by introducing pressure, sending “clean” water through your faucet while simultaneously sending water containing minerals and other contaminants down the drain.
Reverse osmosis starts with a sediment filter that eliminates dirt and other large particles. This prevents damage to the reverse osmosis membrane. Then, the water runs through a carbon filter that removes contaminants such as chlorine. After this, the water reaches the reverse osmosis membrane that allows the process described above to occur. If an RO system is a four-stage version, they will use a polishing filter made from carbon in the last step, which ensures your water will be as clean and crisp-tasting as possible!
Benefits of a reverse osmosis system include the following:
- Improved taste
- Fully automated filtration
- Easy maintenance
- Removal of dangerous contaminants
Reverse osmosis systems work best with soft water that's been pre-filtered before the RO process. Your pre-filtration needs will vary based on the type of water that your home or business already has. Since reverse osmosis systems also use a carbon filter, your water will be free from chlorine and chloramines!
Whole-Home RO Systems
While many reverse osmosis filtration systems install to single outlets, some systems are robust enough to handle the filtration needs of an entire house. These are also known as a point of entry (POE) system and install at the main waterline of a home or business. These systems are quite large and are not suited for everyone. However, some people and businesses choose them because of their increased output capabilities.
Reverse Osmosis Is Environmentally Friendly
According to the latest figures, only about 1 in 10 Americans gets all their drinking water from the tap, while roughly twice that many people get their water mostly from bottled sources. Over the last two decades, Americans have consumed more and more bottled water, nearly tripling our use of glass and plastic bottles since 1999.
Reverse osmosis is one way that you can seriously reduce the use of plastic bottles in the United States. Creating totally drinkable and highly filtered water at your tap means you'll no longer have to contribute to the enormous amount of plastic waste our country produces.
"But what if I like sparkling water?" If you regularly enjoy carbonated water, then a one-time purchase of a soda machine would allow you to drink sparkling water without the use of a single plastic bottle or can. Within a year, your reverse osmosis system could pay for itself and have a positive impact on the environment.
