Everything You Need to Know about Reverse Osmosis Systems

If you have concerns about the water quality in your home, consider switching to a reverse osmosis water system. Reverse osmosis is a water purification system that improves and filters water for drinking, cooking and other uses. Considering making the switch? The experts at Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing lay out everything you need to know about reverse osmosis systems.

How does it work?  

Reverse osmosis water systems filter water by eliminating any particles that are smaller than a water molecule. The filtration process removes all solid substances, foreign contaminants, large molecules and minerals from the water. The process works by applying pressure to the incoming water and forcing it to pass through a membrane that allows water molecules to continue on while blocking 99% of contaminants. These contaminants are disposed of through a discharge drain. This process produces a small tank of pure, bottled-quality water ready for your use at any time.

What are the benefits?  

Although there are other forms of water filtration on the market, there multiple benefits that only a reverse osmosis system can offer. The first unique benefit is the elimination of sodium from the water. Sodium, which has a direct relationship to many health issues, is not removed by a traditional water softener. Another benefit of a reverse osmosis system is that it operates with far greater efficiency than most water filtration systems. This can ultimately result in lower energy bills and a decreased carbon footprint.  A third benefit is that reverse osmosis systems can be personalized to fit your home or kitchen.

Another great thing about these systems is that they are easy to maintain, only requiring their filters to be changed every six to nine months. You can replace these filters yourself or contact a professional to help out.  Possibly the greatest benefit to an at-home reverse osmosis system is that it uses the same process as bottled water manufacturers, so you can be sure that your drinking water is of the highest quality and avoid purchasing plastic bottles, which benefits both the environment and your wallet.

How is it installed?    

Reverse osmosis systems can typically be installed within an hour, the price dependent on your chosen system. Although reverse osmosis systems are relatively easy to install, it is best to have a professional on site to answer questions and install the system efficiently.
