Today’s consumers are becoming more and more conscious of the quality of the food and water they are consuming. A reverse osmosis (RO) drinking water system is becoming a key component of delivering high-quality drinking water for homes and businesses across the country, without the expense and trash of bottled water.
A typical drinking water RO system reduces the mineral and contaminant levels on water from 90-99%, leaving behind crystal clear water with a crisp, refreshing taste akin to bottled spring water (minus the plastic flavor!). In fact, Aquafina, one of the most popular brands of bottled water in the US, uses regular public water, and purifies the water with reverse osmosis technology.
In well water, reverse osmosis typically eliminates the risks of contaminants like nitrates, lead, arsenic, and varieties of chemicals. High mineral content like iron, sodium, sulfates, etc., can lead to bad water taste, which a reverse osmosis system effectively reduces.
A reverse osmosis system is highly effective at removing fluoride and chlorine, commonly found in public water supplies. Trihalomethanes (THMs), a contaminant caused by the chlorine reacting with impurities in water, is usually present to some degree in municipal water. In fact, it is not uncommon for public water sources to be in violation for exceeding the maximum contaminant level of THMs set forth by EPA. A drinking water RO system is also an effective treatment method for THM’s.
Upon purchasing a system, we professionally install it, utilizing convenient dispensing locations, such as drinking water faucets and/or refrigerator and icemaker dispensers. You are left to enjoy the luxury of purified water on tap, without the expense or bother of bottled water.
This depends on the size of your household and what all the purified water will be used for. Since some systems produce water faster than others, this is an important factor. Sometimes to give you more capacity, an extra storage tank can be added to the system so you can use more water at once.
