Need Cleaner Drinking Water? Here's Your Guide to Reverse Osmosis Systems, Myers Corner, New York

Instead of purchasing bottled water, which costs a premium and wastes a great deal of plastic, you have a variety of greener, more cost-effective options for dealing with contaminated or unpleasant tasting tap water. One of these is to install a reverse osmosis water treatment system in your home. If you are unfamiliar with this system, here’s how it works.

What Is a Reverse Osmosis System?

Reverse osmosis in Wappingers Falls, NYReverse osmosis is a filtration technique that forces water through a semipermeable membrane to remove contaminants. Most RO systems feature three cylinders. The first cylinder is a filter that removes sediment and hard particles that might damage the delicate membrane. The second contains the membrane, made of a thin, synthetic composite that removes lead, asbestos, dissolved organic materials, and other contaminants. The final stage is a carbon filter that removes any impurities that might have slipped past the composite membrane. 

What Are the Benefits of Reverse Osmosis?

RO systems remove harmful impurities from your drinking water, such as nitrates, pesticides, bacteria, and chlorine. In addition to making the water taste better and removing unpleasant odors, this enhanced filtration can help you avoid illness. High concentrations of arsenic, for example, can result in nausea and fatigue. Meanwhile, chlorine can lead to respiratory problems like asthma.

There are also cost benefits to consider. RO systems are easy to maintain and rarely break down since they feature few moving parts. And you can save money that you would otherwise spend on bottled water or delivery.
