WHAT IS A WHOLE HOUSE REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM?
A whole house reverse osmosis system is a water filtration system that filters the entirety of your home’s water through a reverse osmosis membrane. A whole house reverse osmosis system is installed at the point where water enters your home. Every drop of water entering your household plumbing is treated by the reverse osmosis membrane, from your drinking water at your kitchen sink to the water you use to shave, shower, and flush your toilets. Whole house reverse osmosis (RO) systems ensure that your entire home is free from any traces of water hardness, salts, chemicals, and TDS. The microscopic pores on the semipermeable membrane of the RO system can eliminate over 98% of dissolved organic and inorganic matter. The water produced by reverse osmosis is almost unparalleled in its purity, and it is a more cost-effective method of purification compared to deionization or distillation. While reverse osmosis is commonly used for residential point-of-use drinking water, those with extremely challenging water conditions install a whole house RO system to provide them exceptional water quality throughout their home.
Benefits of whole house RO system
There are many reasons why a family needs or wants purified water at every tap in their home. The primary benefit many consumers enjoy is the pure, clean drinking water. This is why compact, inexpensive, and simple under-the-counter point of use (POU) RO systems were introduced. With a new shiny separate faucet installed next to your kitchen sink, your family can fill their cups, bottles, bowls, pots, pans, or anything else used for cooking and drinking with pure RO water. But what about the other areas of the house - do you really need pure RO water at every tap? A POU drinking water RO system is limited to one faucet, very limited in capacity & flow rate, and some models can waste up to 7 gallons of water to make only 1 gallon.
What are the benefits of expanding this simple filter into a complete water purification system for your entire home?
Reverse osmosis is a separation process in which dissolved ions, heavy molecular weight compounds, and particulate matter are removed from a liquid. The process splits the liquid flow into a purified stream of liquid which has passed through the membrane (permeate) and a concentrated stream of liquid which has passed over the surface of the membrane (concentrate).
Every customer has different needs for reverse osmosis purification besides great-tasting drinking water, whether it's for problematic levels of arsenic, chromium, nitrate, or uranium, corrosive levels of sulphates, sodium, chlorides, or other salts, undesirable levels of fluoride or minerals, or varying concerns that can be best treated by a whole house RO.
Do you have a little one that likes to drink the bath water, or is it convenient for you to grab a drink of water from the bathroom sink before bed? Are you noticing corrosion on water fixtures, appliances, or does an excessive salt make your hair dull, skin pasty, or clothes stiff? You'll notice the difference immediately when you take a shower, run a load of laundry, or shine up your faucets with purified whole house RO water.
