Reverse Osmosis System Basics

Reverse Osmosis systems are in most houses these days to get the freshest water possible from the tap. But a lot of people don't know too much about these systems. Don't worry, we'll tell you everything you need to know!

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis is a process of filtration that removes many different molecules and ions out of the water by passing the water through a permeable membrane with very small holes.  This means that harmful particles like chlorine, metals, and fluoride are passed out of the drinking water for a purer, fresher taste.

There are several different ways of having reverse osmosis in your home. The most popular way is to use an under the sink reverse osmosis system. This requires the system to be placed underneath the kitchen sink and it takes the normal tap water flow into the system. It then goes through a very thorough process of a three step filtration; first removing the larger particles such as salt and rust. Next, it has a second layer for the smaller particles, such as molecules and ions.  Finally, a reverse osmosis filter which is a thin film, allows only the finest water to pass to your lips.

Reverse Osmosis Systems are popular with many households as well as the military for when they don't know the condition of the water they will be drinking overseas. They have to make sure that their troops are drinking safe, clean water and reverse osmosis is a fast, easy, and effective way to ensure that.

The True Cost of Reverse Osmosis

While being a healthy alternative to tap water which contains heavy metals, bacteria and cysts, reverse osmosis systems are much easier to install in homes than you think. To put the system in, it usually costs about $500 for the system and water bottles. The RO filter membrane (the one that gets rid of all the tiny particles) needs to be replaced every 3 to 5 years, sometimes lasting longer if it isn't used that often. This is incredibly cheaper than buying water bottles every week at $4.50 for a pack.

Do you Need a Reverse Osmosis System?

While some people are fortunate enough to live in the woods where there are streams, creeks and flowing water that is clear, crisp and fresh, most of us live in the city where water is treated at industrial plants and sourced from hundreds of miles away. We don't know where our water comes from, how long it has traveled or what has gotten into it (think animal feces). The water treatment plants tend to get rid of most of these contaminants, but there are just some particles too small to treat in such a large place. So, when the tap water comes to your house, it has some additives like fluoride and calcium so your bones will be stronger, but it also potentially has bacteria, rust, heavey metals, and various other things that can make you sick.

With reverse osmosis, you are removing all of that bacteria and giving yourself and your family water that seems like it came from the mountains.
