RO Filter Systems: What You Need to Know

Wondering what can lurk in your household water if it doesn’t undergo filtration? Among the impurities that may be present in contaminated tap water are human and animal waste, hard metals like calcium and magnesium, radioactive wastes, and chemical contaminants like salts of chromium, barium, and selenium. With all these contaminants that could threaten your health, you don’t have to think twice about getting a water filtration system for your home.

Fortunately, technology has paved the way for numerous types of water filtration systems. One that’s quickly gaining ground is the reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration system. This equipment purifies water by applying high pressure to push the impurities out of the water. It also has a membrane component then catches all the unnecessary elements.

Most RO filter systems though manage to produce an average of ½ gallons of clean water per person per day. Such amount is suitable for small households. If your household, however, consists of four or more family members, you may want to look into larger RO filter systems that can generate clean water more than the average amount.

Then again, there is a way to increase the capacity of the equipment, and this is by switching to a higher flow membrane. However, be sure to also adjust to a correctly sized drain flow restrictor when doing so to ensure water quality remains unchanged.
