Reverse Osmosis (RO) is one of the most popular methods for effective home water purification due to its ability to deliver bottled-water levels of safety and taste. In fact, the leading bottled-water companies actually use large-scale RO to produce their water. So instead of wasting money on plastic bottles that pollute the environment, consider a cost-effective RO system that removes over 99% of dissolved minerals, chlorine and contaminants down to sub-microscopic levels. You’ll enjoy crystal clear water for drinking, cooking, and drink mixing that tastes great. Learn more about how reverse osmosis works and its benefits.
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, Watts, Pura 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 or Chromium-6 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.
