What Is Reverse Osmosis & How Does it Work?

With the quality of our drinking water increasingly coming into question, people are now looking for alternative sources of quality water. Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems provide the most convenient and economical solution. Neatly stored under the kitchen counter or in a mechanical room, the Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System provides your family with clean, convenient, and delicious water right from its own dedicated tap.

How Does RO Work?

Reverse Osmosis is a filtration system designed to remove dissolved solids, organic and inorganic forms, that a water softener cannot. RO removes metals like aluminum, copper, lead, chromium, and many others. It also removes inorganic forms such as nitrates, phosphates, chlorides, sulfates, and more. RO works by forcing water from your home’s supply through the RO membrane. This membrane contains thousands of tiny holes, just large enough to allow water molecules to pass through. Anything bigger than a water molecule is trapped and cannot fit through the membrane. c and j water offer a premium 5-stage Reverse Osmosis System that is a great solution for water used for drinking and cooking. c and j water is passionate about providing Central Indiana families with high-quality water right from the tap.

Stage 1—Sediment Filter

The sediment filter screens out particulate material, such as dirt, sand, or rust, which may clog the other filters in the system.

Stages 2 & 3—Activated Carbon Block Prefilters

The activated carbon prefilters reduce chlorine, which may damage the RO membrane filter.

Stage 4—RO Membrane

Reverse Osmosis membrane provides up to 99% Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) rejection. The membrane is what separates the water from the non-water.

Stage 5—Activated Carbon Polishing Filter

The polishing filter absorbs any residual tastes & odors just before the water is delivered to a 3.2 gallon NSF Certified plastic storage tank and then through the faucet.

Why You Should Consider Reverse Osmosis at Home

If your household wants to eliminate odors and contaminants from your water supply, and you want the highest quality, “better than the bottle” drinking water available, then reverse osmosis might be for you. Even if you rely on treated municipal water instead of a well, you never fully know what comes out of your tap. A home R.O. system adds an additional strong layer of security and is guaranteed to remove lead, fluoride, and other components that sometimes make it through the citywide water treatment process.

Compare a reverse osmosis system with your home’s current water filtration system and find out which one works best for you and your family. Talk to c and j water in Indianapolis to get started!
