Explaining Reverse Osmosis Filtration and its Benefits
Many have heard about them, but not everyone knows just what they do. Reverse osmosis filtration provides some unique benefits that make water that initially may not have been palatable or healthy to drink. But what, exactly, does it do?
First of all, how reverse osmosis works is by passing water through a semi-permeable membrane or filter with very small holes to push certain molecules out and keep others in. Most standard reverse osmosis membrane housings will accommodate membranes ranging in capacities from 10-150 gallons of water per day. It’s a good process to use for people suffering from heart disease because it eliminates almost all salt and 99% of bacteria and pyrogenic substances from water.
But what other benefits does a reverse osmosis filtration system do for the water needed to hydrate the body? Here are 5 quick facts to help consumers decide if this filter is right for them:
•Creates better tasting, smelling and looking water
Because reverse osmosis takes out certain bacteria and chemicals, it makes the water taste fresher, and both smell and look clean and clear. This encourages better hydration and health.
•Excellent purification process that consumes no excess energy
The high-pressure process by which purification takes place removes some very detrimental pollutants that could harm the body. This is all done through a filter that is attached to the water faucet, so there are no extra pumps that will cause excess energy to be wasted.
•Gets rid of pollutants without collecting them
What pushes through the membrane is only the water, not contaminates or pollutants that may be in the water. They don’t collect anywhere to find their way in. All of that is flushed away through the system so it doesn’t affect the drinking water or leave an unhealthy residue.
•Convenient and easy to keep clean
Unlike some filters that can get messy and elaborate, all that needs to be done to clean the system is to take the filter off, rinse it then put it back. As mentioned, there is no unhealthy residue to worry about.
•Completely green and good for the environment
The reverse osmosis filtration system doesn’t use any chemicals for purification, so it doesn’t compromise the environment at all. Whatever it takes out is what’s in the tap water that can be disposed of naturally.
ConclusionReverse osmosis filters are an excellent way to turn questionable tap water into clean water for pennies on the gallon. The filters are easy to use and make for a smart investment.
