While health experts are divided on the effects of drinking demineralized water, there is some concern about long-term ramifications. Reduced intake of essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium can cause damage to mucous membranes in the intestines and have a negative impact on numerous body functions. When used in cooking, demineralized water can diminish the mineral content already present in food, lowering your overall mineral intake even further.
There's also the matter of acidity to consider. Because it lacks mineral ions, which are the principal contributors to water's alkalinity, demineralized water is slightly acidic. Drinking water that is acidic is typically considered to be less healthy than drinking water that is alkaline or pH balanced.
Even if user is unconcerned about the health risks of drinking demineralized water, the flavour may turn user off, especially if user is accustomed to drinking tap or bottled mineral water.
METHODS OF REMINERALIZATION RO WATER:
-ADD A MINERAL FILTER: Don't worry if the buyer had purchased a RO system without a mineral filter; you may still add one. Mineral filters are available as an add-on item from most RO system manufacturers, which you can connect to your system later. The majority of these mineral filters work with any typical RO system.
-ADD MINERAL SALTS:A pinch of mineral-rich salts, such as rock salt, Dead Sea salt, or Himalayan salt, is another alternative. Table salt should not be used because it is mainly sodium. Drinking water with too much sodium is unhealthy.
-LIMESTONE DISSOLUTION WITH CARBON DIOXIDE: Carbon-dioxide acidified desalinated water is passed through limestone contactors, which are essentially a bed of domestic limestone. The water receives two crucial elements from limestone dissolution: bicarbonate alkalinity and calcium residue. The fact that limestone is easily available is one of the benefits of this method.
-pH NEUTRALIZATION SYSTEM: The CO2 neutralisation system automates the pH neutralisation of acidic CO2 applied to water for re-mineralization of reverse osmosis-treated drinking water or industrial process water. This method injects a precisely calculated amount of soda ash solution into the water, assisting in keeping the pH of the water slightly alkaline or neutral rather than acidic.
-ADD GREEN POWDER: If the user prefers minerals from plants, this is another good alternative for re-mineralizing reverse osmosis water. Green powders or green blends are made up of a variety of fruits and vegetables that provide minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients to the consumer. The powder can be mixed into RO water or used in cuisine, smoothies, and tea.
REMINERALIZING FILTER CATRIDGES:
-CALCITE AND CARBON FILTER CATRIDGES: These are inline cartridges made up of a mix of activated carbon and calcite filters (such as coconut-based Granular Activated Carbon (GAC)). This type of cartridge would be very useful for RO processed water that requires both flavour and re-mineralization.
-CALCITE CATRIDGES: These are special cartridges made entirely of calcite that elevate the pH of water to a non-corrosive level.
-USE AN ALKALINE WATER PITCHER:A mineral filter at the top of an alkaline water pitcher provides a range of healthful minerals to the drinking water. The main disadvantage is that they are more expensive than mineral salts and trace mineral drops, especially when the filter cartridge must be replaced on a regular basis. They are, nevertheless, ideal for people who prefer the ease of re-mineralizing water by simply putting it into a pitcher.
Following reverse osmosis or desalination, re-mineralization is a critical step. NETSOL can assist you figure out which re-mineralization method is best for your house.
