Reverse Osmosis Water Systems
Reverse osmosis water filter systems (RO Systems) have become a common method for the treatment of household tap and drinking water. This water treatment process filters undesirable materials from water by using pressure to force the water molecules through a semi permeable reverse osmosis membrane
. RO Systems, or reverse osmosis filters
, water treatment removes ionized salts, colloids, and organic molecules down to a molecular weight of 100.
Fresh Water Systems offers a full line of reverse osmosis systems
from Water Factory Systems, GE, PuroSmart and more. Our RO drinking water systems
are designed for point-of-use residential water quality improvement.
The Environmental Working Group just released a report on December 20, 2010 that Hexavalent Chromium
has been found in 31 of 35 U.S. cities. The highest levels were detected in Norman, OK; Honolulu, HI; and Riverside, CA. Awareness of the presence of Chromium-6 was brought to the spotlight through the feature film "Erin Brockovich" starring Julia Roberts.
The best way to remove Chromium-6 from tap water at home is with a reverse osmosis system or a water distiller
. There is no legal limit for Chromium-6 in either tap water or bottled water, so ensure your safety by utilizing a reverse osmosis drinking water system.Chromium-6 in U.S. Tap Water
