We all know that we need water to survive, but what kind of water do we need to thrive? These days, it’s not uncommon to hear about the dangers hiding in our water, but many of us still believe that the water that comes out of our faucets is perfect for drinking. While the water that trickles through the pipes in our homes is certainly exponentially healthier than what a large portion of the world has access to, it’s still not necessarily the healthiest thing for us to consume. In fact, many would argue that it’s quite unhealthy. Knowing this, it’s no surprise to see countless water filtration products that promise to provide healthier drinking water, free from the contaminants that may pose a threat to our health. While many of these systems are effective to a degree, very few remove as many contaminants as a reverse osmosis system.
Reverse osmosis is a process that removes dissolved inorganic solids, such as salts, from a solution, such as water. Reverse osmosis systems accomplish this by using household water pressure to push tap water through a semipermeable membrane to deliver drinking water that is free from 95% to 99% of contaminants. While it may seem like a complicated process, reverse osmosis is actually quite simple, and it’s been used for many years to desalinate brackish water to make it suitable for drinking. Reverse osmosis systems not only reduce water contaminants, but they also save you money by offering clean, purified water for pennies per gallon. They also consume very little energy, so they won’t cause you to pay a higher electric bill.
