Reverse Osmosis is a water treatment process that removes undesirable materials from water by using pressure to force the water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. This process is called "reverse" osmosis because the pressure forces the water to flow in the reverse direction (from the concentrated solution to the dilute solution) to the flow direction (from the dilute to the concentrated) in the process of natural osmosis.
What does a Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Remove?
Reverse osmosis water filtration systems can remove 90% of total dissolved solids (TDS) from water and can provide the purest water available for your home. Reverse osmosis water filters remove a wide range of contaminants and minerals from your drinking water, including sand, chlorine, fluoride, cryptosporidium, and hexavalent chromium.
Kills bacterial growth by diffusing ozone into the water in the holding tank. Ozone is a highly energetic oxidizer like chlorine, and is effective in small quantities
Multi Stage Filtration
Used to kill bacteria primarily in untreated well water systems or where the water quality is uncertain.
Carbon is an extremely versatile and highly effective water treatment medium. It has immense surface area. A single pound of granular activated carbon has a filtering surface area equivalent to 125 acres! It is the best known treatment for organic chemicals, VOCs, pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine and its by-products. It is also an unchallenged taste-and-odor improver. When arranged in solid carbon or extruded carbon block format, it also provides very high quality particulate filtration, in some cases down into the sub-micron level. Carbon filters can be made of varying materials including coconut shells which provide an eco-friendly solution.
Sediment Filtration is an effective method for reducing turbidity in water caused by the presence of suspended solids such as silt, sand or clay. Sediment Filters remove suspended matter such as sand, dirt, rust, loose scale, clay or organic material from the water.
Untreated water passes through a filter medium which traps suspended matter. Sediment filters can remove insoluble (not dissolvable) or suspended iron and manganese. Drinking Water Treatment using Sediment Filtration is one option for a home owner to treat water problems. Sediment filters are often used with other processes such as activated carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, aeration, ozonation and chlorination.
