Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification process that uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove dissolved solids and impurities like bacteria, viruses, odors, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, heavy metals, and more. In addition, reverse osmosis is a highly effective method for removing water-borne viruses from the water. As a result, it can be beneficial to use an RO drinking water purification system in areas with contaminated water in order to protect you and your family from diseases like diarrhea, cholera and typhoid, which can be life threatening.

Reverse osmosis water purification is increasingly being used in water treatment applications in homes as well as in heavy industry.

How does RO water purification work? 

Reverse osmosis water purification systems work by using pressure to force the water through a membrane, which filters out contaminants. Whereas regular osmosis occurs naturally without energy required, the process of filtering drinking water with reverse osmosis requires energy. When water is pushed through the semi-permeable membrane, water molecules are allowed to pass while the majority of dissolved salts, organics, bacteria and viruses are blocked. When the drinking water has undergone the filtering process of reverse osmosis, it is desalinated, demineralized and deionized.

The RO water purification filter is usually combined with other water purification filters such as a sediment filter or an activated charcoal filter. When combined with other drinking water treatment methods, RO water purification filters provide high-quality water that is free from unpleasant tastes and odors and completely safe to drink.

What are the benefits of RO drinking water purification? 

Reverse Osmosis is proven worldwide to be an effective purification technology which produce purified water suitable for any household. In addition to filtering out waterborne diseases, RO water purification is the most effective way of removing heavy metals and chemicals like iron, lead, mercury, arsenic and fluoride. Its effective filtering capacity leaves you with a soft and sweet type of drinking water which is completely safe to drink. An RO filtration system can be installed under the kitchen sink, directly at the kitchen faucet or even as a point-of-entry system which filters all the water entering your home.
Here are four good reasons to get an RO drinking water purification system for home use:

1. Saves you money

In the long run, an RO drinking water purification system is an investment that will save you money. At first, it might seem expensive, but it will always be a cheaper alternative to bottled water. Depending on how much water you use, these savings can range from hundreds of dollars to thousands per year.

2. Health benefits

RO water purification is the most effective way to clean water. In fact, an RO water purification system can remove as much as 99 % of contaminants from your drinking water. This is much more effective than using a charcoal filter alone, which is incapable of removing certain contaminants. This high efficiency is especially a benefit for anyone with a compromised immune system. In fact, it can benefit all of us. All humans rely on clean water. And contaminants like lead or bacteria have damaging effects on the human body. RO water purification systems make sure your water is safe.

3. Better tasting water and food

Iron and other compounds as well as the overall hardness impacts the taste of the water. When using an RO water filtration system, the taste can be improved. An RO drinking water filter solution can be connected directly to your faucet, providing clean drinking water on demand. Since reverse osmosis water purification systems remove minerals and impurities, many users report better-tasting food when using the filtered tap water for cooking. While boiling kills bacteria in the water, other contaminants never disappear. This has an effect on the taste.

4. Good for the environment

If you are like the rest of us, you have probably bought bottled water even though you know about the detrimental effects plastic bottles have on the environment. By using an RO drinking water filtration system, you get safe and healthy water right from your tap, limiting your usage of bottled water.

The benefits of Aquaporin RO membranes 

There are many considerations to factor in when choosing the perfect water purification system.
When using Aquaporin’s home water purifiers, the tap water flows through an Aquaporin Inside® membrane. The membranes contain aquaporins, the protein responsible for transporting and purifying water in all living cells. The aquaporin protein is nature’s own way to filter out contaminants. It is extremely selective to water, while rejecting unwanted compounds. Thus, the aquaporin proteins act like a super-highway for water. Billions of years of evolution have made aquaporins super-efficient and super-selective, far better than any man-made water filter. Aquaporin’s home water filters keep out everything else than great tasting pure water.

ZERO

ZERO is the highest performing, most compact reverse osmosis system to go under the sink. It is smaller than a briefcase but still capable of filtering tap water without electricity, pumps, motors, control units, or external water storage tanks. The ZERO water purifier has an internal tank allowing it to deliver three liters of purified water within the first minute. Once the tank is empty, purified water can continuously be dispensed but at a slower pace. One of the advantages of this design is that you will not experience noise from a pump or any other electrical components.

ONE

ONE is a water purifier machine in its own league. An efficient machine design combined with Aquaporin Inside® ensures a high flow. It purifies a high amount of the incoming water to great-tasting drinking water, the equivalent of a water recovery level of 65 %. The user experience of this RO water purification system is characterized by consistently high performance and easy maintenance. Despite its high performance, ONE is a compact water purifier machine with a slim design. A booster pump ensures a continuous high performance by stabilizing the inlet water pressure. In addition, an indicator on the machine lets you know when it is time to replace the filters, which is an easy task with only two cartridges (PCB and DWRO™).
