What is Reverse Osmosis Water Purification?

Reverse osmosis refers to a water purification process that utilizes a partially permeable membrane to remove molecules, ions, and larger particles from your water. This process reverses the natural osmosis process, which is how it gets its name. There is a pre-filtration stage before water passes through the reverse osmosis membrane. Then, external pressure is applied to force the water molecules through the membrane. Impurities do not pass through the membrane and are eventually washed away, leaving you with filtered water.

Common Household Water Contaminants

Some of the contaminants that may be present in your household water include:

Microorganisms like bacteria and viruses
Chemicals like chlorine, pesticides, or VOCs
Fluoride, sulfates, and other inorganic contaminants
Excess minerals such as calcium and magnesium
Sediment and particulate matter
Lead or copper from pipes in older homes

Benefits of Professional Water Purification

When you work with us to purify your household water, you can have peace of mind knowing that the contaminants that were previously in the water have been removed. Some of the benefits include:

Cleaner tasting water
No more skin irritation
No more sediment in the water
Scale prevention
Much lower risk of health issues
Lower energy consumption
Minimal maintenance and operating costs
No reason to use plastic water bottles

FAQs on Reverse Osmosis Purification

Drinking reverse osmosis (RO) water is generally considered safe and healthy. Reverse osmosis is a highly effective water purification method that removes contaminants, impurities, and minerals from the water through a semipermeable membrane.

The process eliminates potential pollutants like heavy metals, bacteria, and chemicals, resulting in clean, pure water. While some argue that RO water may lack minerals, it remains a reliable and safe source of hydration. 

Obtaining essential minerals from a balanced diet is more effective than relying solely on water. For those with specific health concerns or preferences, remineralization filters can be added to restore minerals. Overall, reverse osmosis water is a popular choice for its purity, taste, and the assurance of drinking water free from many common impurities.

While reverse osmosis (RO) is an effective water purification method, it has certain disadvantages.

One drawback is the significant water wastage during the filtration process, as only a portion of the water passes through the membrane. Another concern is the removal of beneficial minerals, potentially resulting in demineralized water.

This can impact the taste and nutritional content, although obtaining minerals from a varied diet mitigates this concern. 

RO systems can be relatively expensive to install and maintain, requiring periodic membrane replacements. The filtration process is also energy-intensive. Some argue that the removal of contaminants may include beneficial substances, leading to a debate about the overall health impact. 

Despite these drawbacks, the choice of using reverse osmosis should be based on individual needs and water quality considerations. Advanced systems, regular maintenance, and complementary technologies can address some of these concerns, ensuring a balanced and efficient water purification solution.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is an excellent water purification method that removes impurities and contaminants, providing high-quality drinking water. It is particularly effective at eliminating minerals, heavy metals, and other pollutants. 

Whether it is “better” than drinking water depends on the context. RO water is exceptionally pure, lacking many impurities found in tap water. While this makes it an excellent choice for certain applications, such as in laboratories or industries, some argue that drinking water with essential minerals contributes to overall health. 

The choice between reverse osmosis water and regular drinking water depends on personal preferences, health considerations, and the specific water quality in your area. It’s essential to weigh the advantages and potential drawbacks of each and make an informed decision based on your individual needs.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a highly effective water purification method, removing a wide range of impurities. However, it’s essential to note that RO may not remove certain substances, including some gases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and certain pesticides.

Additionally, it may not eliminate all bacteria and viruses, though it significantly reduces their presence. Some RO systems come equipped with additional filters to address these limitations. 

Minerals are another consideration; while RO reduces mineral content, it does not eliminate them entirely. Despite these minor limitations, reverse osmosis remains a robust water treatment solution, offering exceptional purification for households. Understanding specific water quality concerns and considering supplementary filtration methods can help address any residual contaminants not removed by the primary RO process.

If I could give a 10 star review I would.I called on a Monday, they came the Tuesday to assess the job (leaking well and fried wiring) then returned the next day with an excavator to complete the work.The two Mikes did a fantastic job. I knew it would be a difficult one because the saturated ground is just full of rock, welcome to PEC!All was going great until our local junkie lunatic decided to steal one of their work trucks from my driveway.Tail gate open, cap doors open, dropping a plethora of plumbing items as she sped off down the road. Including a motorcycle helmet belonging to another A-1 employee who came by to drop off a couple of fittings.Little did the crackhead know, I have security cameras and resulting video was of great interest to the OPP officer who attended possibly the most ridiculous crime ever committed in Rednersville.With everyone on scene in a state of complete and utter disbelief and now short on tools and supplies, the two Mikes still managed to complete the work. Thank you so much guys!You’re the best.
