Why Reverse Osmosis is a Good Idea

It may seem like a bit of overkill to install your own water treatment system in your home, but you’d be surprised at how much benefit it can offer. The big reason that you want to have a reverse osmosis system installed in your home is because of the kinds of contaminants that might end up in your plumbing system without it.

Some common contaminants found in untreated water include lead, arsenic, cyanide, and a wide range of harmful viruses and bacteria. These contaminants may not be in high enough concentrations to cause immediate medical issues. However, long–term exposure to even small amounts is not good for you. A reverse osmosis system provides an extra layer of defense against this.

How It Works

Reverse osmosis systems operate by forcing all water coming into the plumbing system through an ultrathin membrane. The system is installed at the point where the water line meets your plumbing system, so that all water flowing into the home must pass through it first. Water molecules are small enough to pass through the membrane without a problem. Larger particulate contaminants, however, are blocked and shunted off to a collection receptacle. This container should be changed out every few months to ensure that the home stays protected.
