- Water is placed under pressure against a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane allows the passage of molecule sized particles to pass through including hydrogen and oxygen.(H2O) Larger particles such as totally dissolved solids and bacteria are unable to pass through the membrane and are flushed away to waste as discarded water. The purified product is then passed through an activated carbon filter which absorbs chemicals such as chlorine and ammonia which are present in reticulated water supplies as a dissolved gas. The carbon also absorbs bad tastes and odours often present.
- The constant flushing action of the discarded waste water has an automatic cleaning action on the surface of the reverse osmosis membrane which would otherwise be very quickly clogged with contaminants. The amount of water ” wasted” by this technology may be equated with perhaps two extra flushes of the toilet per day. Not a high price to pay for purified drinking water for the whole family. Filters should be changed regularly. Approx every twelve months. The average life of the reverse osmosis membrane is between 3-5 years
- Many people are not satisfied with the quality of the water coming in to their home to be used for drinking and cooking.. Bottled water companies know this and they sell you their water for more than $1.00 a litre. Recent studies have found that many cities have high dissolved metal contaminant levels in their water, along with other contaminants. There have also been many cases in the news of Cryptosporidium, Giardia and other biological contamination of public drinking water supplies. For removal of totally dissolved heavy metals and other contaminants dissolved into water, the technology we recommend is reverse osmosis. Reverse osmosis can provide you with water that is at least as good as bottled water, in many cases far better than, for a fraction of the cost. Many bottled water companies use reverse osmosis to purify tap water and then they sell you this water. RO purified water is also suitable for use in vehicle batteries. Many medical institutions recommend large ingestion of purified water as a post treatment for chemotherapy. Many users also claim relief from the symptoms of arthritis after drinking purified water for an extended period of time.
Wall mounted model complete with laundry tap adaptor. These units are usually installed above the tub in the laundry where purified water is collected in sterile containers and stored in the refrigerator.
