Bottled water is a way of life for most West Texans. We don’t drink from the tap because we feel we can’t. Even if it’s not dangerous to drink, the water coming from the faucet just doesn’t taste very good. What if there was a way to purify your water, so you could drink it straight from the tap? In this post, we’ll explain the Reverse Osmosis water purification process and how a system could work for you and your household!
ROLE OF R.O.
The awesome news about Reverse Osmosis is that it scientifically guarantees that your water is pure H20. Water is considered “hard water” when contaminants are gathered as it makes its way through the pipes to your drinking glass. R.O. scientifically eliminates them.
R.O. systems are commonly used to manufacture bottled mineral water. Imagine that coming from your faucet!
R.O. requires the use of filters, called membranes. The “reverse” part of R.O. happens because the water has to be forced through the membrane to separate contaminants from the good, clean water. The water purification filters trap particles like calcium and rust before they get into your drinking water. Many systems use a second carbon filter to catch more chemicals – things like chlorine which come in even smaller particles. Finally, a Reverse Osmosis membrane filter uses an ultraviolet lamp to sterilize any remaining contaminants. Depending on the filter type, the sizes of the membrane pores can vary. The smaller the filter, the cleaner the water.
