At Watercare we have a wide and varied range of water filters and water purifiers, these can be used for a number of applications including filtering drinking water, aquatics and a whole list of commercial applications, the systems we have are very versatile, diverse and very effective.
For optimum performance and the best quality drinking water we install the 5 Stage Pumped Reverse Osmosis Water Filter in Ireland.
This system is installed neatly under your kitchen sink and will take a feed from your cold water pipe, filtering your water down to the highest possible clarity, removing unwanted chemicals, bacteria and other harmful substances.
The operation of reverse osmosis systems includes filter housings containing specialist filter cartridges or membranes which systematically clean the water passing through it with the purified end result being stored in a tank and drawn off for use via a separate tap. This process not only removes sediment, bad taste, odour and chlorine but also unwanted salts and dissolved minerals (TDS) such as fluoride, nitrate, calcium, magnesium as well as cysts and a variety of metals.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis, commonly abbreviated to RO, is a water treatment method traditionally known for removing salt from seawater, it is also used to purify drinking water by forcing untreated water molecules through a semi permeable membrane. The membrane has a tight pore structure that effectively removes up to 99% of all contaminants and impurities such as total dissolved solids, chemicals, bacteria and viruses from drinking water. Anti-microbial filters used in Reverse Osmosis also help to remove unwanted odours, colours and tastes from water. The result is pure, clean, drinking water.
Reverse Osmosis filtration technology is so effective that it is used by most leading water bottling plants.
How does a Reverse Osmosis System work?
Although Reverse Osmosis seems like a complex system it is really a simple and straightforward water filtration process. Of all methods to purify water for domestic use, the process of using reverse osmosis is the most advanced, economical and effective.
RO is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids are removed from the water. This is accomplished by household water pressure pushing the tap water through a semi permeable membrane, the membrane has the astounding quality of attracting water molecules and repelling dissolved impurities, even those smaller than the water molecules themselves. The membrane, which is about as thick as cellophane, allows only the water to pass through, not the impurities or contaminates.
What does a Reverse Osmosis System remove?
Reverse Osmosis successfully removes dissolved minerals and metals such as; Fluoride, Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Manganese, Aluminium, Ammonium, Copper, Nickel, Zinc, Strontium, Cadmium, Silver, Mercury, Barium, Chromium, Lead, Chloride, Bicarbonate, Nitrate, Fluoride, Silicate, Phosphate, Chromate, Cyanide, Sulfate, Thiosulfate, Ferrocyanide, Bromide, Borate, Arsenic, Selenium.
Reverse Osmosis Systems are very commonly used following water softeners for sodium removal.
How often do I need to change the filters on my Reverse Osmosis System?
Once a year. Depending on the quality of your water, some filters may need to be changed every six month. Watercare will notify you when it is time to replace your filters.
