1.What is reverse osmosis and how can it be so effective at purifying my water? Reverse osmosis is a very effective process for removing chemical and bacterial contaminants that are potential health hazards. It requires special filters that have semi-permeable membranes. Water is forced into the filters and pushed through the membrane. This process allows water to pass through the membrane, but not ions (calcium, iron, manganese, etc.) or larger molecules (glucose, urea, bacteria). Since this goes against the concentration gradient (lower concentration to higher concentration) it is the opposite process of osmosis, thus giving it the name reverse osmosis. As an additional benefit, the design of the filter is also uniquely laid out in a continuous circling manner, much like the rings of a tree appear. This design allows for maximum filtration and usage of the membrane's surface. The reverse osmosis method is an efficient and comprehensive means of eliminating more than 90% of potentially harmful contaminants. How do I know if reverse osmosis may be right for me? If you are concerned about the water quality in your home, reverse osmosis may be an option for you. If you notice any taste or odour problems, or are aware of high levels of dissolved minerals in your water supply, you may want to consider a reverse osmosis system. If you are or have an immune-compromised individual in your home who is especially susceptible to infection from various water-borne contaminants, an RO system is often recommended. A dangerous micro-organism cyst called Cryptosporidium may be present in your water, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend using reverse osmosis for removal. Which contaminants will a reverse osmosis system remove? Reverse osmosis will treat a variety of contaminants, both chemical/elemental and bacterial. Included are... Chemical/Elemental: Aluminum, Arsenic, Asbestos, Atrazine, Benzene, Chlorides, Chlorine, Copper, Cyanide, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury, Nitrates, Radium, Radon, Silver, Sodium, Sulfide, Trichloroethylene, and Total Trihalomethanes. Bacterial:* Cryptosporidium, Giardia. *While RO systems may be effective at removing bacterial contaminants, design considerations such as tiny seal leaks or manufacturing imperfections may prevent foolproof protection. Therefore, absolute disinfection should be ensured with a post-RO system such as UV light. This will reduce the reduction of bacterial contaminants to greater than 99.9%. Besides reducing contaminants, what other benefits does reverse osmosis provide? With reverse osmosis, the most noticable difference will be cleaner, sparkling water that tastes great! Because the natural state of your water is altered in this manner, the flavour of food and drinks can come through without any "chemical" taste. As well as having low mineral content in your water can.
