Reverse Osmosis vs. Deionization: Which Is Better?

Water plays an important in everyone’s life, since it is one of the things people cannot survive without. As well, it’s mightily important to ensure that the water being consumed is free from any contaminants. Everyone is entitled to a safe drinking water supply, which water filtration systems can provide. There are a lot of recommended filtration systems available in the market, including reverse osmosis and water deionization systems. Both aim to purify your water to make it safe and potable for drinking, yet both yield very different results.

Deionization denotes the process wherein mineral ions present in water are removed, most especially water coming from your tap. Deionized water is usually removed of minerals such as sodium, calcium, iron, and chloride, and involves electrically charged resins to remove these mineral impurities from your water. However, deionized water, while devoid of minerals, cannot remove more potent contaminants, such as bacteria, which can have adverse effects on you and your family’s health.

This now becomes the strength of reverse osmosis systems; water is being forced into a semi-permeable membrane, which only lets water molecules pass through while trapping contaminants, such as minerals and bacteria, thus producing purer water. If you’re after a safer and cleaner drinking water for your family, your best bet is in installing a reverse osmosis system in your home.
