Reverse Osmosis systems force water under pressure through a semipermeable membrane and a series of pre-filters then into a storage tank that holds the treated water until it’s needed. A dedicated external faucet is included so that the stored water is only used when desired.
RO system filter modules include: A pre-filter that captures larger particles, chlorine and other substances, a semipermeable membrane filter that captures finer contaminates, and an activated carbon filter that takes care of residual taste, odor and additional organic contaminants. RO systems reduce bacteria, cysts, sediment, chemicals, lead & other heavy metals, dissolved solids, chlorine taste and odors.
Maintenance for RO systems include periodic replacement of the pre-filter, semi-permeable membrane and activated carbon filter cartridges.
