Residential Reverse Osmosis Systems
What is a Reverse Osmosis System?
Reverse osmosis systems use a special membrane-based water filtration method that prevents large molecules and ions, such as sands and salts, from passing into your drinking water.
With Reverse Osmosis Systems, you enjoy all of the following:
- Healthy, sparkling-clear drinking water
- Pristine, flavorful coffee, tea & juice
- Clearer ice cubes
- Better tasting soups, sauces, and meals
- Environment-friendly water treatment
- Cost effective when compared to purchasing bottled water
- Fresh, clean water any time you turn on your tap… no jugs!
Reverse Osmosis System Pre-Requirements:
- Less than 10 GPG Hardness
- Less than 0.1 PPM Iron
- Less than 0.05 PPM Manganese
- No Hydrogen Sulfide
- Use only on microbiologically safe water
Commercial Reverse Osmosis Systems
Reverse Osmosis is an effective mechanical water treatment process for reducing 95% to 99% of the dissolved mineral salts, organics and particles by forcing the water, under pressure, through a semi-permeable membrane. TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) is the typical use for reverse osmosis along with pre-treatment for Deionization.
The Recovery rate (% feed water converted to product water) is normally in the 50% to 75% range. Low-energy membranes are used which allows for smaller high-pressure pumps, thus reducing energy use. Pre-treatment is usually required to remove turbidity (multi-layer filter), chlorine (carbon filter) and hardness (water softener) should these contaminants be in the water supply. Post-treatment systems along with atmospheric storage and repressurization systems are also available.
