RO Systems

We all want our drinking water to be pure, fresh tasting and free of contaminants. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Water coming into our homes and offices may contain harmful viruses, bacteria and other contaminants. This is true whether we are on a private well or a public water system. One of the best ways to eliminate those contaminants is to install a reverse osmosis water filtration system.Reverse osmosis, however, involves a diffusive mechanism so that separation efficiency is dependent on solute concentration, pressure, and water flux rate. Reverse osmosis is most commonly known for its use in drinking water purification from seawater, removing the salt and other substances from the water molecules.


What Is a Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System?

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a membrane-technology filtration method that removes many types of large molecules and ions from solutions by applying pressure to the solution when it is on one side of a selective membrane. The result is that the solute is retained on the pressurized side of the membrane and the pure solvent is allowed to pass to the other side.
A reverse osmosis water filtration system often contains some of the same filtration stages that other water filtering systems use, such as a sediment filter for removing large particles like rust and sand plus a carbon filter that removes chlorine and other bad-tasting chemicals. The difference, though, is that a reverse osmosis system adds a special semi-permeable membrane capable of removing contaminants as small as a single atom. This includes heavy metals, such as lead, mercury and chromium.

How Effective Is the Reverse Osmosis Process?

Reverse osmosis (RO) is an extremely effective filtration process. In addition to filtering water, it has been used in the desalination of water and the treatment of wastewater. It has also been used for purification purposes in the food industry. It has even been used to purify water that hospitals use for dialysis and water that is used for injection. Other industries that use reverse osmosis include cosmetics and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Pure, Healthy Water From Your Faucet

Hard water problems?

Hard water results from high levels of calcium and magnesium in water. Hard water minerals stick to everything water touches, and do more than leave an unsightly residue – they can actually harm your home and cost you money. What Can Reverse Osmosis Remove From Drinking Water?

The reverse osmosis process can remove a myriad of organic and inorganic contaminants from your tap water. These systems specialize in removing chlorine taste and odor, rust, sediment and also alleviate common worries about public water by reducing or completely removing arsenic, asbestos, chromium, fluoride, lead, mercury, VOCs, THMs, giardia and cryptosporidium. For a more expansive list, view our contaminants removed by reverse osmosis list or our thin-film membrane particle size removal chart above.

Common hard water problems include:
Stains and buildup on sinks, shower heads, and dishes
Dry skin and hair
Costly long-term damage to water appliances

How Reverse Osmosis Works – Stages of RO System Diagram


1. Sediment Pre-Filter
Melt Blown Polypropylene removes dirt, rust and sediment particles down to 5 microns. There are several different types of sediment cartridges.

Pleated filters feature increased surface area and longer life. These cartridges are washable and reusable.

Melt blown polypropylene filters are designed for the removal of dirt, rust and sediment from water. 5 and 20 micron are the most popular sizes for drinking water applications.

String wound filters are an inexpensive solution to your filtration needs. These cartridges come in a variety of media types and have a wide range of applications.

2. Carbon Pre-Filter
Coconut Shell Carbon Block Cartridge(s), 10 Micron removes chlorine, taste, odor and chemical contaminants.

Activated carbon block filters typically have a 0.5 to 10 micron filtration capability, making it also helpful for particulate filtration, removing taste and odor from chlorine, insoluble lead reduction, and demonstrating, in some cases, removal of Giardia and Cryptosporidium. A 5-stage reverse osmosis system has a third housing to hold an additional carbon block cartridge.

3. Reverse Osmosis Membrane
Thin Film Composite (TFC) rejects (removes) 95% of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) down to .0001 Microns.

Thin film composite membranes (TFC or TFM) are semi permeable membranes manufactured principally for use in water purification or water desalination systems. They also have use in chemical applications such as batteries and fuel cells.

4. Post Carbon Filter
Coconut Shell Activated Carbon is the final polishing filter after a storage tank, just before you use the water.

5. Inline post filters typically clip onto the top of a reverse osmosis system’s membrane housing. The post filter removes any chlorine or contaminants missed by the other cartridges or membrane.
