Things You Need To Know About Reverse Osmosis Water Purifier

Jul 6, 2008
The filtration and purification processes are highly important not only in the context of muddy water as even the clearest creek may contain micro-organisms harmful for our bodies. With the invention of the drinking water purifier we do not have to worry about the metals, the germs, bacteria, fungi and protozoa present in our water. New products are release every single day but most of them relay on old proven system. There are various types of drinking water purifier, some relying on filtration and some others on the use of disinfectants like chlorine, ozone or iodine. In this article I am going to concentrate on one filtration method, Reverse Osmosis.

R/O (reverse osmosis) is a filtration method that more and more people are using. This filtration method will produce very clean water. These filter us a complex process of water filtration that use several treatment stages in the cleaning process and that is why they are known as "ultra purification" filters. For those who want a simple under sink system or maybe a water purifier system for the entire house, these filters are a perfect unless you don't have limited supply of water. In that case, you should try something else. More on that later.

The R/O system works in two steps:

1. The first step in the filtration process is the removal of the largest residual particles. This particles are removed by activate carbon and a filter sock. The carbon need to be changed from time to time, to function as it is supposed to.
2. The second step is when water is pushed at very high pressure through a membrane that only allows the water molecule and not the impurities to pass. The clean water end up in a holding tank and the impurities are flushed away to the waste water container. You need to use a holding tank since the R/O filtration is a slow process and take some time to finish.

Before you decide to set up a Reverse Osmosis system for the treatment of you drinking water, there are a few things you should know about.

* The system will not protect you against the micro-organisms in the water. That means that you have to test the water to know about how good/bad it is. For that, you can by a home test kit or send the water to a laboratory for analysis. When you have the data, you can decide what kind of filtration system you should use.
* As mention earlier, the filtration process is a slow process. Only about 15 percent of the water that you are using turns to drinking water quality. The rest is flush away. That mean that if there are any limitations on the water source that you are using, maybe the Reverse Osmosis system is not the right solution for you.

Installation:
You can install the system by yourself if it is only for a single water faucet. If you are planning for a whole house purification system, then it would be best if get some professional help.

Summary:

For those who want a simple under sink system or maybe a water purifier system for the entire house, these filters are a perfect unless you don't have limited supply of water. The first step in the filtration process is the removal of the largest residual particles. The clean water end up in a holding tank and the impurities are flushed away to the waste water container. The system will not protect you against the micro-organisms in the water and as I mention earlier, the filtration process is a slow process. Only about 15 percent of the water that you are using turns to drinking water quality.
