Purification Explained

Drinking Water Purification Systems

 What is Purified Water?

Purified water is one tremendous step cleaner than filtered water.  After the source water is filtered through activated carbon pre filters, it is forced at high pressure through a microscopic membrane which rejects the maximum amount of contaminants present in the water.  The water is then passed through a post filter that can remineralize, carbon polish, alkalize or deionize, whichever you prefer.  This is the process known as Reverse Osmosis (RO).  It is as pure as distilled water but taste’s better. 

 What Does a Reverse Osmosis Purification System Remove?

Where is a Point of Use (POU) Reverse Osmosis System installed? 

RO Systems are usually installed under the kitchen sink with a third faucet at the sink top.  It can be installed in remote locations such as the garage or other kitchen cabinets etc if need be.  Most refrigerator ice makers gets its water from under the kitchen sink, so the purified water is routed to that line so that your ice cubes will be purified as well. The RO system works on water pressure and does not require any electricity. Designer faucets are available at our Water Stores.

What is the Maintenance on a POU Reverse Osmosis System?

The RO system requires that the Pre and Post Carbon Filters be changed once a year for full time residents and every other year for part time residents.  However, part time residents will need a special post filter to prevent bacteria from growing in the system while they are absent.

The RO system also has a membrane that is the heart of the system and removes all the contaminants leaving the water absolutely purified.  It is replaced every 4 years.  At the four year mark the membrane should be tested to determine the strength of its removal of contaminants.
