An Overview of Reverse Osmosis Systems

Have you noticed impurities in your home’s tap water? Possibly you can smell or taste your tap water? If you’re sick of constantly having to buy bottled water, consider installing a Reverse Osmosis System.

What is a Reverse Osmosis System?

Reverse Osmosis is a process that filters impurities from your home’s water by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane. This process produces clean and delicious drinking water!

Reverse Osmosis Systems (R.O.) filter your water multiple times before it’s stored for use. There is carbon filtration both before and after the water is forced through the membrane. An R.O. system has a holding tank for holding the filtered water, along with a special faucet for dispensing.

What are actual benefits of installing a Reverse Osmosis System?

The semi-permeable membrane in an R.O. system forces water through tiny pores which catch lots of molecules that your home water softener could’ve added. (i.e. calcium and magnesium)

Reverse Osmosis Systems can filter out harmful contaminants such as: Lead, Copper, Fluoride, Radium, Barium and more. The carbon pre-filter removes chlorine, which might be added by your local water supplier.

More benefits of using an R.O. System

Metro Plumbing recommends R.O. systems because you will get water in it’s purest form. With an R.O. system your water will have no taste or odor. Another great benefit of having an Reverse Osmosis System is Cooking. Cooking with clean water is, of course, ideal.

Although you can get an RO system at a big box store, Metro Plumbing would love to help with the process. It tend’s to work better if you call a water treatment professional to get these systems installed. Professionals are able to consider the right factors for your home before installing the system.
