Reverse Osmosis Filters: Information about Ro Water Purifiers

Do you know everything there is to know about reverse osmosis water filters? Do you know how often they need to be replaced? Do they keep out all of that harmful bacteria to keep your family safe? There are so many questions to ask about such a system and we can answer all of them for you here!

The Reverse Osmosis Water Purifier

Drinking pure and fresh water is important to everyone. Through the use of reverse osmosis, many people are able to achieve getting that water at a fraction of the cost, and without all of the carbon footprint associated with bottled water. With this type of system, there are reverse osmosis filters that help keep out many of the bacteria in tap water. They are the best filtration system offered today and are the process that most bottled water companies use.

All about Reverse Osmosis Filters

RO filters are easy to install and replace in many household systems. The actual price of an RO water filter system is around $200-300 to start out with and with some of the water costs and maintenance is factored in, the total cost is around $1000. The reverse osmosis filters last for around 3-5 years though and are relatively inexpensive to replace. The thin filter membrane should be replaced every 2-3 years to ensure that none of the smaller molecules, like chlorine, are getting through the larger RO filters.

The savings you recieve from having a RO water purifier over long term use is well worth the initial investment. Plus, the clean and pure taste of fresh water to your house is always worth it. Most homes can produce up to 50 gallons of RO filtered water a day, but some can go up to 100 gallons a day! If larger amount of water need to be filtered each day you may experience extra costs, such as a new water tank and upgraded reverse osmosis filters.

How do you Change out the Filters?

Most RO systems are do-it-yourself these days so they often come with the correct tools and parts in order to change out the RO filters. First, you have to check what type of system you have, either a screw or a cylinder. In order to change out the filter yourself, you have to:

  1. Unscrew the cylinder to change the specific RO filter (either with a wrench or the whole cylinder will unscrew)
  2. Remove the old filter
  3. Put the new filter in place of the old one
  4. Rescrew the cylinder back in place ensuring that is tight so no water will spill out.

That's all! Now you know how to replace your reverse osmosis filter to keep the best quality water.
