reverse osmosis water filter

Every thing you should know about choosing reverse osmosis system

Despite the marketing of some manufacturers, there is no miraculously versatile solution. What works in one configuration won’t necessarily work in another, and reverse osmosis – is considered the ultimate by most water experts. It is no exception to the rule of caution… and reflection.
Reverse osmosis is undoubtedly the most efficient filtration system: welcome to the infinitely small with filtration to the billionth of a meter, or 10 millionths of a micron, or 0.0001 μm, or 0.1 nanometers, a choice! At this scale, even smaller than the water molecule, up to 98-99% of all pollutants and minerals are eliminated.
Osmosis is thus the only recommendable device capable of lowering the pH of water by 0.5 to 1 point and thus potentially switching to slight acidity. That means more protons (H+ ions) and proton activity. Remember that the search for alkalinity is nonsense. By doing this and by eliminating the highly oxidizing chlorine, the oxidation-reduction rate or rH2 improves significantly until it generally reaches antioxidant water, charged with electrons. Acidic (pH<7) and antioxidant (rH2<28), the water obtained thus corresponds to the criteria of Vincent’s Bioelectronics (BEV) and is sometimes qualified as “perfect” water.
From a theoretical and physicochemical point of view, it will indeed be difficult to do better. This is why osmosis is recommended for the production of therapeutic water (hydrogenated water Idrogen or trace elements Oli-Dyn). We remain dependent on the initial quality of tap water: if we start with catastrophic water (pH = 8 and rH2 = 41.34), we will not systematically obtain this ideal result. Especially if the osmosis unit has a remineralization cartridge that initially increases the pH instead of lowering it.
Extreme purification by osmosis also entails a certain number of constraints: huge loss of pressure of water, from 1 to 10 liters for each liter of water produced greater or lesser sensitivity to limestone and therefore to the hardness of the water. the need to install the osmosis unit on a single water point. generally the presence of a reservoir. the water felt to be a bit “artificial”a recommended annual maintenance contract.

Some tips about the reverse osmosis system

Reverse osmosis is considered the best filtration system in the world. To obtain the purest possible water, this is the recommended solution! Reverse osmosis is indeed a restrictive technology with some disadvantages.
Principles and basic faults of the reverse osmosis water system. The water is thoroughly filtered following three essential steps: a sediment filter, the classic activated carbon filter to remove chlorine in particular (chlorinated water would damage the membrane), and finally the reverse osmosis membrane for much finer filtration than the “ultrafiltration” of the best water treatment plants. At this level, if the membrane is of good quality, there is not much left except water and a few minerals.
 This won’t appeal to bottlers or doctors. Virtually all minerals are indeed removed! No, some die-hards resist again and again. Prevent the water from being too “empty” as in the case of the distiller. Some experts consider this minerality insufficient. No study has ever been able to demonstrate any danger over the long term. On the contrary: the fewer minerals there are the more the water hydrates and cleans.

Questions to ask yourself when choosing a reverse osmosis system
We can go upmarket and get out of the big trade with devices integrating a dynamization at the outlet after the tank or directly in the tank. Deciding on a reverse osmosis water filter was already not easy. Here are the key elements of ROs to question:

Countertop RO or Under sink reverse osmosis?

The sink RO is generally easier to install. They are visible and take up space: the right place for water! The under-sink RO is much more discreet. Only the faucet is visible.  Require meticulous installation and the drilling of the worktop.

Reverse Osmosis with Tank or Tankless?

The tank offers ease of use with automatic filling and a water reserve is always available.

On the direct flow side without a tank, limited risk in return for lower pressure and the need to be patient. Except to multiply larger membranes (mounted in parallel). To increase the cost the loading of a membrane not always be immediate.

The right compromise could be the small tank or the tank under constant dynamization, the safest approach.
