“What is reverse osmosis and what does it do?”
A – It is the reverse flow of water that passes from a more concentrated solution to the more dilute solution through a semi-permeable membrane. Reverse osmosis is the most economical and natural way to provide you and your family with high quality drinking water from your own faucet. Great for cooking, works for tea and coffee, (no scaling) and it fits under your sink.
Reverse Osmosis water systems are designed only to improve aesthetic properties and is not designed to act as a primary barrier to waterborne microbiological or toxic chemical contamination. Where these conditions may exist, please consult with us to ensure sufficient raw water pre-treatment and disinfection.
“How often should I change the filters in my reverse osmosis, and does it need to be sanitized?”
A – The filters for most reverse osmosis should be changed once a year. Sometimes every 6 months depending on usage, time of year or area you live in. Reverse Osmosis systems should be sanitized, and the tank disinfected for HPC or Heterotrophic bacteria.
“My reverse osmosis is not producing any water or very little?”
