Premium-Quality Drinking Water
In addition to the Water Softener, most families choose a drinking water system. These systems improve your water by reducing substances that cause your water to taste or smell bad, as well as removing contaminants that may be harmful.
Drinking water systems are installed at the point of use, which only purifies the water necessary for drinking and cooking. A Reverse Osmosis system removes the most substances from your water, giving your family delicious, bottled quality water for only pennies a day. We have an Alkaline System available as well. Please contact us for more information.
What Does 'Reverse Osmosis' Mean?
Reverse osmosis, also known as hyper filtration, is the finest filtration known. This process will allow the removal of particles as small as ions from a solution. Reverse osmosis is used to purify water and remove salts and other impurities in order to improve color, taste or properties of the fluid. It can be used to purify fluids such as ethanol and glycol, which will pass through the reverse osmosis membrane, while rejecting other ions and contaminants from passing. The most common use for reverse osmosis is in purifying water. It is used to produce water that meets the most demanding specifications that are currently in place.
Reverse Osmosis uses a membrane that is semi-permeable, allowing the fluid that is being purified to pass through it, while rejecting the contaminants that remain. Most reverse osmosis technology uses a process known as 'cross flow' to allow the membrane to continually clean itself. As some of the fluid passes through the membrane the rest continues downstream, sweeping the rejected remnants away from the membrane. The process of reverse osmosis requires a driving force to push the fluid through the membrane, and the most common force is pressure from a pump. The higher the pressure, the larger the driving force. As the concentration of the fluid being rejected increases, the driving force required to continue concentrating the fluid increases.
Reverse osmosis is capable of rejecting bacteria, salts, sugars, proteins, particles, dyes, and other constituents that have a molecular weight of greater than 150-250 Daltons. The separation of ions with reverse osmosis is aided by charged particles. This means that dissolved ions that carry a charge, such as salts, are more likely to be rejected by the membrane than those that are not charged, such as organics. The larger the charge and the larger the particle, the more likely it will be rejected.
*When installed by High Desert Water, our Reverse Osmosis system includes a limited 5 year warranty that covers parts and workmanship (excluding filters). Membrane covered by 2 year warranty.
