Water is a scarce resource in many parts of the world, including areas of the U.S. Tap water is accessible to some people, but there are concerns there as well, since pollutants like lead and arsenic have found their way into our water supply on occasion.
If you want to ensure you have the safest drinking water flowing from your tap, a reverse osmosis system may be right for you. Let’s take a look at this unique water filtration system and its benefits.
What is Reverse Osmosis Water?
Reverse osmosis is a filtration process in which untreated water flows through a semipermeable membrane that filters out impurities, leaving only pure water behind.
Water that’s been filtered with reverse osmosis is safe to drink. This system is commonly used in areas where fresh water is scarce or in homes to purify the tap water. Campers and travelers also rely on reverse osmosis water in areas known for contaminated water sources, since it’s one of the best systems for removing impurities.
In fact, high-quality reverse osmosis filtration systems are effective at removing excess lead, copper, arsenic, nitrates, selenium, chromium, fluoride, radium, barium and a variety of harmful microorganisms.
Benefits of Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration
Other than the benefit of pure, clean water, there are many other benefits to having a reverse osmosis filtration system, such as:
Reduced sodium: Water softeners remove the mineral deposits in hard water, but they don’t purify water. These systems soften water by an ion-exchange process, which leaves behind high levels of sodium that impact taste. Reverse osmosis filters out this excess sodium.
Better-tasting tap water: Bottled water can be expensive, but it may be your only option if you don’t like or trust drinking tap water. With a reverse osmosis system, however, you’ll have pure, fresh drinking water straight from your tap.
Better-tasting food: Impure water not only affects the taste of your drinking water, but it can also affect the taste of the food you cook with it. The high chlorine levels in tap water can discolor the food you cook and give it an odd taste. Reverse osmosis removes this chlorination.
