Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filter

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filter

A Reverse Osmosis Filter is a chemical-free option for acquiring clean water. It is used primarily to filter drinking and cooking water. For this reason it is generally placed under a designated drinking water faucet, typically under the kitchen sink, where it will store purified water that is readily available for use.

Reverse Osmosis Filtration is a simple water filtration process. Household water pressure is used to push tap water through a semipermeable membrane to remove molecules, ions and larger particles.

An RO membrane rating is 0.0001 microns in size; anything larger will not pass through. This process will remove approximately 99% of contaminants and impurities like, arsenic, radon, salt and fluoride.

It is the same filtration system used to desalinate seawater.

An RO filter is referred to as a point-of-use (POU) filter. This differs from a whole house filtration system that would be installed at a point of entry (POE) where a main water line enters the home. A whole house system is designed to remove larger particles, about 10-30 microns and deliver water throughout the home quickly. RO, filters are more specialized to remove a broader range of impurities for the cleanest drinking water possible.

Reverse Osmosis Filter Benefits

A reverse osmosis water filter offers numerous benefits for home water purification, such as:

  • This advanced filtration system can remove up to 99% of impurities and contaminants, including chlorine, lead, fluoride, sodium, nitrates, and other heavy metals. By reducing these harmful substances, reverse osmosis improves overall water taste, odor, and clarity, and the purified water ensures safer, healthier drinking and cooking for your family.
  • Reverse osmosis protects your plumbing and appliances by reducing scale build-up from minerals.
  • The system is more affordable in the long term than continually buying bottled water.
  • It also reduces plastic waste, making it an eco-friendly option.
  • You can use purified water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and pets.
  • By removing impurities, reverse osmosis prolongs the life of appliances like dishwashers and coffee makers.
  • The compact system installs easily under your sink.

With all these advantages, a reverse osmosis filtration system is a smart investment to improve your home's water quality.
