How Reverse Osmosis Can Improve Your Water

Tap water is convenient, but it's not always safe. In fact, there are stories about even lead contamination in water sources or plumbing pipes! Luckily, there are solutions, and a filtration system is one of them. Though they serve the same purpose, there are many types of filtration systems with unique methods. Reverse osmosis is a popular solution to contaminated water. In this brief article brough to you by Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air, we’ll touch on how reverse osmosis works.

If you are interested in a water filtration system installation, then call Rooter Hero Plumbing to consult with a local plumber. We offer installations as well as maintenance and repair solutions. We are happy to schedule an appointment or arrange an emergency plumbing service today!

Understand the Risks

Tap water is the primary source of water for many people, but it may harbor impurities such as chlorine, sediment, bacteria, viruses, and various pollutants. Drinking water laden with impurities poses immediate health risks, ranging from gastrointestinal concerns to enduring health issues.

Worse, toxic chemicals like lead have the potential to infiltrate drinking water through aging plumbing pipes or service lines. Prolonged exposure to lead can induce severe health complications, particularly impacting the nervous system, kidneys, and developmental processes.

Enter: Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems

In the defense of our health, reverse osmosis filtration systems stand as stalwart guardians. These advanced systems deploy technology to purify water and mitigate the risks associated with lead contamination and impurities.

How Does Reverse Osmosis Work?

Reverse osmosis is a process which uses a semi-permeable membrane to selectively remove contaminants from water. Applying pressure propels water molecules through the membrane, leaving impurities behind.

The semi-permeable membranes in reverse osmosis systems possess exceptional fineness, able to capture even microscopic impurities for a high degree of water purity. In fact, reverse osmosis filtration systems are engineered to specifically target and remove lead particles from water.

Beyond lead, reverse osmosis systems excel in eliminating a broad spectrum of impurities, including chlorine, sediments, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants. The versatility of reverse osmosis ensures that you enjoy water with a level of purity that adheres to rigorous quality standards.

Don’t Underestimate the Breadth of Benefits

Reverse osmosis offers clear and purer drinking water, but the benefits extent beyond the immediate and obvious health benefits. Cooking with reverse osmosis water enhances the taste and quality of food you cook! After all, water is a primary or auxiliary ingredient for many dishes.

Reverse osmosis lends your appliances and plumbing system a hand as well by preventing the buildup of minerals and impurities in appliances. This ensures efficient operation and a longer lifespan without the hindrance of buildup and scaling.

On a global or environmental level, investing in solutions like a whole-house water filtration system installation reduces our reliance on bottled water and minimizes plastic waste.

Don’t Forget Maintenance!

Water filtration systems work incredibly well, but they must be cared for. Monitor water pressure, replace filters as recommended, and perform a comprehensive inspection periodically. If you’d like to have a trained plumber inspect your existing filtration system, or if you’d like a new one installed, then call Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air to start with a consultation.
