In today’s world, the quest for clean water has never been more urgent. To this end, Reverse Osmosis filters have emerged as indispensable tools, offering households and businesses a reliable means to unlock pure, refreshing drinking water. Join us as we delve into the inner workings, benefits, and practical considerations of reverse osmosis systems.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a sophisticated water filtration process that harnesses the power of natural osmosis in reverse. By pushing water through a semipermeable membrane, RO systems filter water, effectively reducing water contaminants and leaving behind some of the purest water available.

Components of Reverse Osmosis Systems

Most common drinking water RO systems are built from several basic components that perform this process:

  1. Pre-filters: These initial filters catch larger particles like sediment and rust. Chlorine is also removed by the carbon portion of the filter, safeguarding the delicate RO membrane.
  2. Reverse osmosis membrane: The core component of the system, this membrane acts as a molecular sieve, allowing water molecules to pass through, while impurities are, in most cases, too large and are flushed to the drain as wastewater.
  3. Post-filters: These filters provide additional purification, enhancing taste and eliminating remaining odors.
  4. Storage tank: Purified water is stored in a pressurized tank, readily available for on-demand access.
  5. Faucet: A dedicated drinking water faucet ensures easy access to purified water for drinking and cooking. In addition, many RO systems can be plumbed to dispense from your refrigerator/ice maker.

Benefits of Using Reverse Osmosis Systems

The taste from a glass of RO water does speak for itself, but scientifically, RO filtration has some very specific benefits including:

  1. Removal of Contaminants: Reverse osmosis systems are great at reducing the stuff in your water that shouldn’t be there. Putting together the RO membrane with the carbon pre and post filters, the system filters out things like metals, chemicals, pesticides, and even cyst type bacteria, making sure that your water is cleaner and safer to drink.
  2. Improved Taste and Odor: Ever notice that tap water sometimes tastes or smells a bit funny? That’s because it can pick up flavors and odors from things like metals, organics, or other contaminants. Even the common disinfecting chemical chlorine adds a taste and smell that many find to be unappealing. But with a reverse osmosis system, those impurities are taken out, leaving your water tasting fresh and odor-free. It’s like having your own bottled water machine right at home!
  3. Health Benefits: One of the most common health problems associated with water is not drinking enough of it. By giving your home or business convenient access to clean, crisp tasting water means there’s a better chance that you’ll hydrate sufficiently. Plus, you can feel confident that you’ve done your part to ensure that potentially harmful contaminants are reduced. So, investing in an RO system is investing in your health.
  4. Environmental Sustainability: Choosing a reverse osmosis system over bottled water is not just good for you, it’s good stewardship too. Bottled water creates a lot of plastic waste, which ends up polluting our environment. By using an RO system, you’re cutting down on plastic waste and doing your part to reduce trash. Plus, RO systems use less energy than other water purification methods, making them a more eco-friendly choice.
  5. Cost-Effectiveness: While it might seem like a big investment upfront, a reverse osmosis system saves you money in the long run. Think about how much you spend on bottled water over time – it adds up! With an RO system, you’re making clean water right at home, so you don’t need to keep buying expensive bottled water. Plus, maintenance costs are low, making it a budget-friendly choice for clean water.

In short, reverse osmosis water filtration systems offer many benefits, from making your water safer to drink and better tasting to saving you money and helping reduce trash. So, if you’re looking for cleaner, tastier purified water that you will love, an RO system is the way to go.

Kind, quick, courteous service! 10 out of 10 would recommend!

I live in Walworth, for almost 60 years. And I normally do all my own work. In this case Aquanology was the only Company to actually talk to me. None of the others returned calls or emails. The folks at Aquanology talked to me, were responsive to our timetable and budget. I had them do a water test and install a UV light on our well. It was more cost effective to have Aquanology do the work. They showed up on time, performed the job, cleaned up after themselves and explained all the equipment installed and how to use and maintain it. Aquanology provides fast, professional and courteous service. I recommend them without hesitation. Regards, Karel

Highly recommend Aquanology for any of your water treatment needs. Matthew was very attentive and quick to respond to any issues or questions I had. They installed a UV system and a sediment filter and even came back and helped me diagnose a completely different issue and rectified it for me within a day. I couldn't ask for better service and support!

I give Aquanology the highest of reviews and would not use anyone else after our recent experiences. Matthew and assistant recently installed a dual alternating softener, a 20 micron carbon block filter and a water on water reverse osmosis additional filter for drinking water, all in the basement of our Pittsford home with an additional line carrying the ultra high quality drinking water to a seperate smaller faucet in our kitchen sink. Matthew explained that we would receive excellent quality water without some of these more expensive upgrades but we requested them due to special health concerns. We had contacted Aquanology 18 months before when our previous company refused to continue servicing an older system. We were impressed by their many excellent reviews. There was never any pressure or disturbing calls. Matthew took the time to explain everything at our level of understanding, tested our water before the final recommendations and after the installation. They arrived on time, were very considerate with our home and cleaning up after themselves. They disposed of all waste and the old system. They declined breakfast and lunch in a friendly manner as they brought their own. They promptly sent us the cancelled receipt for our records. Pricing is very competitive. They explained how to service the system ourselves, which really involves very little, but we chose to ask them back for a 6 month service call which is reasonably priced. We felt we knew everything about the system and could ask Matthew anything. We felt very safe and at ease. At one week after installation all is working well and water quality is excellent. If you have any problems with your water or want a water system you can not do better than Matthew and Aquanology.

We recently had a water softener and charcoal filtration system installed in our home, and we couldn't be happier with the results. The entire process was smooth and hassle-free. Matthew from Aquanology was professional and efficient, and took the time to explain how the system works. Since the installation, we’ve noticed a significant improvement in the quality of our water. Our clothes feel softer, our appliances are performing better. It's made a noticeable difference in our daily lives, and I highly recommend this water softener installation service to anyone looking to improve their water quality and home comfort.

Matthew is honest, trustworthy and hardworking. He’s genuine and explains everything. His brother was here for the first part of the install but I didn’t meet him. We had the water softener, RO and UV installed and it has made a huge difference. We lived with hard well water for many years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Without knowing the actual contaminant, it is difficult to say for certain how well an RO system will function. There are some rare cases where there are chemicals whose molecules are small enough that an RO membrane alone will not effectively reduce them. That is, however, the beauty in that most RO systems come paired with carbon filters, because in some cases, what an RO membrane will not reject, a carbon filter will remove by adsorption. In short, an RO system paired with good quality carbon filters is an effective reduction tool against some of the most wide spectrums of contaminants.
Because of the way the reverse osmosis process works, these systems generally function better when they are run for half an hour or so at a time, versus only a minute or two when the faucet is open. Therefore, most common RO systems filter water slowly and fill a reserve tank that you can dispense from at your convenience.
The RO membrane life depends largely upon water quality. In poor water quality cases, especially when the water has high iron or hardness levels, it may foul after only one year of usage, but if water is correctly pre-treated and softened before the RO, it may last three years or more. The best way to tell is to use a TDS meter to measure the incoming water levels, and compare that to the product water TDS levels. If the percentage of rejection is still inline with manufacturers specifications, then a membrane replacement is not yet necessary.
