Offering a 5 Stage Reverse Osmosis System which removes contaminants from water, by forcing it through a very fine membrane and four filters which allows only pure water molecules to pass. 

 This filtration process, as a whole reduces silt, sand, protein, dyes, formaldehyde, sodium, chloride, herbicides, pesticides, fluoride as well as may other contaminants.

A Typical Reverse Osmosis using the following process;

  1. Water is first passed through a 5 micron sediment filter to remove suspended matter, dirt, algae and silt.
  2. The water passes through two pre carbon filters.  The carbon filters remove chlorine and other volatile organics from the water.  The removal of chlorine improves the taste and odor of the water and maintains the integrity of the membrane.
  3. From the carbon filters the water is passed through the reverse osmosis membrane.  The membrane removes organics, minerals, lead, dissolved metals, chemicals and more. 
  4. The pure water is now transmitted to the holding tank.  The holding tank is an essential component to the system, as the process of reverse osmosis is not instantaneous.  The holding tank generally sits under the counter next to the RO unit, but can easily be installed in a closet or crawl space.
  5. When clean water is needed, the faucet is opened and the water travels from the holding tank through a post carbon filter to the tap on your counter.  The post carbon filter ensures the water maintains it crisp, clean taste.

Service and Replacement Filters Available

  • Q: Does Reverse Osmosis filtration remove bacteria such as ecoli?
  • A: No. Reverse Osmosis is best suited for water that has already been deemed bacteriological safe for human consumption, or is adequately disinfected or sterilized on a regular basis.

  • Q: What maintenance is required for a residential Reverse Osmosis system?
  • A: It is recommended that Reverse Osmosis filters be changed once a year. Drinking water should be tested at this time to make sure the membrane is functioning properly. The Revese Osmosis Membrane, with proper maitenance, typically lasts 3 to 5 years.
