What is Reverse Osmosis?
You may remember from science class that molecules often want to move from an area where there are a lot of them to an area where there are not many of them. This is called diffusion. One particular type of diffusion is called osmosis. This is when molecules of water move from one place to another through a membrane.
In osmosis the membrane is semi-permeable, meaning that it only lets the water molecules pass through it. It doesn’t let through any larger molecules of things that may be in the water, such as bacteria. You can see that this might be a good way to make water more clean and pure.
If left to itself, osmosis will continue until the water molecules are equal on both sides of the membrane, since water finds its own level. But the osmosis can be controlled by putting pressure on one side of the membrane, to make the water go to the other side. In this way, you can filter the dirtier water through the membrane to make it cleaner.
This is how reverse osmosis works. Dirtier water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane, and comes out as cleaner water on the other side. It’s called reverse osmosis, because the water would naturally want to equalize itself to have the same amount on either side of the membrane. But in reverse osmosis, the water is continually forced from a lower concentration on one side to a higher concentration on the other.
A French scientist discovered the process of osmosis in 1748, when he watched water diffuse through a pig bladder. Nowadays, reverse osmosis is used to create pure water for all kinds of applications where it’s needed. It’s used for drinking water, desalinization, water reclamation, and medical applications such as kidney dialysis.
There are many benefits to a Reverse Osmosis Water Filter system:
- Removes dangerous contaminates from your water system
- Provides ultra pure water for your home or business
- Ultra clean water taste and is great for cooking
- The cost is as low as five cents per day,* regardless of how much water you consume. (Try comparing that to a single plastic bottle of water!)
* This figure represents the initial cost broken out over the first year after purchase of the system. Contact us for more details!
Why Reverse Osmosis?
Two of the largest American bottle water producers rely on Reverse Osmosis to filter all of the water they sell. Now you can have this same great taste in your own home for drinking, cooking, or making ice. If you regularly purchase bottled water, you know just how expensive it can be. A Reverse Osmosis filter system can save you hundreds of dollars a year and slow your waste production at the same time.
A top quality Reverse Osmosis system can remove as much as 99 percent of contaminates, including highly toxic sediments and chemicals like mercury, lead, arsenic, asbestos, cyanide, radon, and even uranium.
Reverse Osmosis filtration can leave your home’s water crystal clear and you can enjoy the peace of mind that our filters provide.
A Five Stage Filtration System
It’s true, not all systems were created equal. Our Reverse Osmosis filtration system relies on five stages. Many comparable systems only have two or three stages.
Eliminates particulate matter and rust
Eliminates odors, chlorine, cloudiness and coloration
Eliminates any odors or chlorine the previous stage may have missed
The membrane – .0001 micron, high rejection membrane eliminates nearly everything from your water, leaving the cleanest water possible
Water is then passed into a tank to be held until needed
Removes and taste or odor that may have come from the tank
Ultraviolet Light Option
Also offered is a sixth stage featuring Ultraviolet Light (UV) that will kill any bacteria that may have escaped the previous stages
