4 HOME REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM TRICKS

If you have a home Reverse Osmosis (RO) system here are some tricks that will help your system perform longer and more efficiently. If you have the opportunity to purchase a system with a pump versus one without a pump, always choose the system with the pump. RO membranes produce more water as pressure increases. While your RO system may produce more than enough daily water without the pump, you…

Osmosis – Purifies Water and Purifies Blood

We learned before that Reverse Osmosis uses what is called a semi-permeable membrane (SPM) to purify water. An SPM is a material designed with a pore size that lets specific materials pass through it, while blocking others. In water purification the membrane allows water to pass, but blocks salts, bacteria and other solids. We also learned that when a SPM separates a highly concentrated solution from a less concentrated solution…

Home Reverse Osmosis – Not Conserving, Not Sustainable

With increasing concern over drinking water quality, more people are turning to home water purification technology to either enhance or protect their own tap water. Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology is a popular technology choice for homeowners. From a quality standpoint, these machines are great. They offer a rejection of 98 – 99% of total dissolved solids (TDS) such as lead, iron, chromium, and other metals. RO also offers a virtual…
