What Does This All Mean? Most of us can’t translate the above technical jargon into actionable information, so we’ll try to help interpret. Until recently reverse osmosis systems were the preferred method for treating and purifying water. However, there are now more efficient and effective means to produce higher quality water for home drinking, cooking and bathing.
On the down side, the natural minerals removed by a reverse osmosis system actually can have a long term negative impact on your health if you don’t replace those lost minerals through other sources.
The newer systems on the market use filtering methods that preserve these valuable and necessary minerals. These technologies remove organic and synthetic pollutants that are becoming more prevalent and can be serious hazards to your health. click here:commercial reverse osmosis
Furthermore, reverse osmosis systems do nothing to produce better tasting water like systems using carbon filters. To top it off, a reverse osmosis system can reject and send many gallons of water down the drain for every gallon that it purifies. Not a very economical approach to cleaning up the water we consume and bathe in.
The newer point of use systems, like those mounted under the sink or just ahead of the bathroom plumbing, can produce extremely high quality water for critical uses and prevent the unnecessary processing of thousands of gallons of water for non-critical uses like watering the lawn and washing the car.
To wrap it all up, reverse osmosis systems are slipping into the history books and activated charcoal systems with multi-phased activated carbon filters are currently believed to be the best value, best performing and most cost effective means for providing clean, safe and healthy water to our homes.
