Why do I need to replace the Cartridges in the RO Filters?
Over time, depending on the type of RO filter cartridge used, it will become clogged or useless. A lot can go wrong if you don't update the cartridges!
1: Sediment pre-filters catch microscopic suspended particles that might otherwise block your faucet aerator, refrigerator, ice maker, dish washer, or washing machine, or wind up in your drinking water.
2: Nobody likes to consume bug bits, grit, or sand! The sediment pre-filter will become blocked with detritus over time, depending on what "stuff" is in your water. The water flow rate will slow as it becomes plugged. That is why it is critical to replace the prefilter on a regular basis. It keeps suspended material away from you, your filtration system, and your appliances.
3: Activated carbon cartridges absorb organic pollutants such as VOCs, pesticides, medicines, and carcinogenic compounds, as well as chlorine disinfectants. These chemicals are absorbed into the internal pore network of activated carbon. When these pores get clogged with pollution, they stop filtering out dangerous compounds, allowing them to enter your drinking water.
4: Solid block activated carbon cartridges remove chemicals, but they can also retain suspended particles, and they must be renewed to keep their better performance attributes.
5: Reverse osmosis membranes are made of a high-tech semi-permeable membrane that wraps around a central core firmly. Minerals, salts, metals, and other contaminants are physically separated from tap water using a RO membrane. This surgery is carried out under tremendous pressure, which finally wears down the membrane. The membrane degrades with time. The RO membrane will let undesired chemicals to pass through and into your drinking water if it is not updated.
When should you replace your Cartridges?
The frequency with which you should replace your cartridges is determined on the sort of filtration system you have and the quality of your water source. A recommended cartridge replacement schedule is included with each water filtering system. If your sediment pre-filter becomes blocked every three months over time, that will be your change-out plan based on your water circumstances. After a few months, you'll notice that your water starts to taste terrible, which means it's time to replace the cartridges. The truth is that you're merely drinking tainted water till it smells or overwhelms your taste senses.If it takes three months to identify a problem, the cartridge should be replaced every two months.
Another issue that might arise if you don't update your cartridge’s, is bacterial contamination. Filter cartridges that have been used for an extended period of time might begin to develop bacteria, which is then discharged into your drinking water.
In the end, failing to change your filter cartridges puts you and your family in danger. Your consumers deserve the finest if you have a commercial application like a restaurant or coffee shop. If your water filtration system fails to function effectively due to negligence, they will notice a drop in quality. You risk losing important business and damaging your image.
