Reverse Osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process that uses technology that allows the removal of a larger majority of contaminants during the demineralization or deionization of water by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable Reverse Osmosis Membrane, leaving contaminants behind that are flushed down the drain. The clean drinking water collects in a holding tank. We have found Reverse Osmosis filtration to consistently be one of the best ways to remove pollutants from tap water.
The process of remineralizing the reverse osmosis treated water adds back some of the good stuff that gets removed during the RO process. We do this by passing water through a mineral filter that contains essential minerals such as calcium (Ca), Sodium (Na), Potassium (K) and Magnesium (Mg). These minerals dissolve into the water thus ensuring that the RO treated water that was demineralised from all good and bad minerals is now healthy and balanced and also helps with increasing the pH of the water to the optimal pH for your body.
The last step in the purification process that ensures that we have the healthiest water is the Ozonation process. This process removes any bacteria, all viruses, protozoans and chemicals that may still be in the water, making it purer than it was before.
Unlike water chlorination, ozonation doesn’t involve adding any chemicals or any other substances to the water. Rather, the water is purified by the ozone gas, a highly-powerful oxidant that inactivates pesticides, organic materials, contaminates, fungus and viruses.
Ozone is a naturally-occurring substance, and when used for water purification purposes, it immediately degrades back to oxygen after purifying the water, leaving no trace elements.
In most industrialised countries, municipal water treatment systems are usually quite effective. However public water treatment is not infallible. There is an increasing number of incidents where contaminants from pollution, lead from outdated or faulty water pipes or residue from the use of pesticides have found their way into the tap water.Therefore, it is not unreasonable to want an extra layer of security to supplement your local or municipal water treatment.
Lead, pesticides, bacteria, viruses and many more physical, chemical, biological and radiological compounds and substances, find their way into the water supply. It is virtually impossible to remove all traces of contaminants from your water, so the local water authorities regulate how much of a specific substance it is acceptable for the water to contain.
While water that lives up to these standards is usually considered safe to drink, you may have your own preference for how high a level of contaminants you feel comfortable having your drinking water contain
Drinking water containing bacteria and viruses can lead to serious health issues and diseases. The most effective way to protect yourself is by using reverse osmosis water purification. The pore size of the membranes used for reverse osmosis is measured in nanometer, which is small enough to stop both virus and bacteria. In addition, reverse osmosis also removes common chemical contaminants, such as sodium, chloride, copper and lead.
Refill instead of buying new bottles and encourage recycling of old used bottles.
Being able to drink fresh and clear water with a refreshing taste and no unpleasant odour can have a big impact on your wellbeing and quality of life. One of the most common complaints about tap water taste involves chlorine, which is an essential disinfectant used around the world. When it comes to odour the most irritating is that of hydrogen sulphide. It smells like rotten eggs.
Water purification can not only help remove harmful containment but also improve the taste, smell and visual appearance of your drinking water.
