Drinking Water Systems
How Reverse Osmosis Works
Reverse osmosis is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids are removed from a liquid, such as water. The process is accomplished using the pressure from your incoming water supply. The pressure pushes the incoming water through a semi permeable membrane. The membrane allows only the water to pass through and not the impurities or contaminates it contains. These impurities and contaminates are later flushed down the drain.
Most of the quality reverse osmosis systems available for household use contain 3, 4 or 5 stages before the water is output to the faucet. These stages may contain a combination of the following filter media; Membrane, sediment filters & carbon filters. Quality systems also have the ability to add or interchange additional filters for certain household situations, such as heavy sediment, unusually high levels of chemicals, well water or other contaminates.
There are several factors that affect the performance of Reverse Osmosis systems; Household water pressure, quality of the pre & post filters and membranes used in the system, temperature of the incoming water supply and the type and number of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in your water. There are many different companies producing Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water systems with just as many price points. The main factor that determines the quality and/or price of most systems is the quality of the filter media and membranes being used. The higher quality of the filter stages will directly effect the quality and purity of the water coming out at the faucet.
We carry three different Reverse Osmosis systems, all outfitted with some of the highest quality media available. Our Micromax 7000 is a 4 stage system designed to produce crystal clear, clean, great-tasting water. The quality construction and superior performance of this system ensures maximum protection of your family’s drinking water for years to come. Our Micromax 6500 is a 4 stage system producing up to 25 gallons per day of clean, pure, filtered water. Our 5 Stage System produces up to 50 gallons of clean, pure, filtered water. All of our systems remove an average of 95% of the dissolved solids from the incoming water, including arsenic, chromium6, nitrates, lead and cysts. This is the same technology used by most bottled water companies.
