Many have heard about R/O systems, but not everyone knows exactly what they do. Reverse osmosis filtration offers some unique benefits that will make water that at first may not have been healthy to drink or palatable. But what, exactly, does it do?

First, how reverse osmosis works is by pushing water through a filter or semi-permeable membrane with very tiny holes to push certain molecules out and keep other molecules in. Common reverse osmosis membrane housings will hold membranes ranging in capacities from 10 up to 150 gallons of water per day. It’s a great process to use for those suffering from heart disease because it eliminates almost all salt and 99% of bacteria and pyrogenic substances from your water.


Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System: Benefits for Your Body?

Here are 5 quick facts to help you decide if this filter is right for you:

Creates better smelling, looking and tasting water. Because reverse osmosis takes out certain chemicals and bacteria, it makes the water taste fresher, and smell and look clear and clean. This encourages better hydration and health in the body.

Excellent purification process that doesn’t consume excess energy. The high-pressure process by which purification happens removes some detrimental pollutants that could potentially harm the body. This is done through a filter that is attached to your water faucet, so there are no additional pumps that will cause excess energy to be wasted.

Gets rid of pollutants without collecting them. Pushing through the membrane is only the water, not pollutants or contaminants that may be in the water. They don’t collect anywhere to seep their way in. All of that is flushed away through the system so it won’t leave an unhealthy residue or affect the drinking water.

Convenient and easy to keep clean. Unlike a lot of filters that can get elaborate and messy, all that needs to be done to clean the system is to remove the filter, rinse it then put it back on. As mentioned, there is no unhealthy residue to worry about.

Completely green and good for the environment. The reverse osmosis water filtration system does not use any chemicals for purification, so it won’t compromise the environment at all. Whatever it takes out is what’s in the tap water that can be disposed of naturally.

Salt-free systems will also reduce scale buildup and provide softer skin and brighter clothes using a healthier method.

The biggest benefit with salt-free systems is the ability to create soft water without having to add sodium into your water. This is a more environmentally friendly and heart healthy system. Traditional salt-based systems add salt to your water which can have a negative effect on people with heart disease and high blood pressure.

Some cities are beginning to ban salt-based softeners because of the high sodium content in the waste water. Salt-free systems are maintenance free and use zero waste water, no salt and no electricity or chemicals. When compared to salt-based systems, salt-free systems are very low maintenance because the media can last up to half a decade without replacing. Salt-based systems require the salt to be replenished monthly. 

Salt-based systems are heavy duty systems that do an amazing job removing hardness in water. They come with several maintenance and health concerns, so it is usually recommended to homeowners with very high hardness levels. Salt-less systems are 100% salt-free and provide safe water to families with children and the elderly. Enjoy peace of mind with salt-free softened water without the issues of chemicals, sodium, wastewater and higher electricity bills. 


The Brains

Most popular water softeners come with an automatic regenerating system. The simplest type has an electric timer that recharges and flushes the system on a regular schedule. During recharging, soft water is not available.

Another type of control uses a computer that watches how much water is used. When enough water has gone through the mineral tank to have depleted the beads of sodium, the computer activates regeneration. These softeners usually have reserve resin capacity, so that a portion of soft water will be available during recharging.

Another type of control utilizes a mechanical water meter to measure water consumption and initiate recharging. The advantage of this particular system is that electrical components are not required, and the mineral tank is only recharged when necessary. Softened water is always available when it is equipped with two mineral tanks, even when the unit is recharging.

Judging Water Hardness

We offer test kits that help you determine the hardness of your water.

Water hardness is measured in grains per gallon (GPG) or milligrams per liter (mg/l, equivalent to parts per million, or ppm). Water up to 1 GPG (or 17.1 mg/l) is considered soft, and water from 60 to 120 GPG is considered moderately hard. A water softener’s effectiveness depends on how hard the incoming water is. Water over 100 GPG may not be completely softened.
