What Does It Remove?
The RO membrane usually rejects more than 95% of salts, however, the amount may vary depending on the quality of water, temperature, and pressure. The system is proven to remove sodium, calcium, magnesium, arsenic, boron, lead, and other heave metals. Moreover, it can also effective removes cryptosporidium, chlorine, sulphates, nitrates, THMs, pesticides, and other organic compounds from your home water supply.
Even though reverse osmosis is quite effective in removing bacterial contamination, it is not recommended to rely solely on a reverse osmosis filter to remove them. In that case, a ultra-violet filtration is highly recommended.
The sediment filter removes silt, sand, sediment, rust, and anything which is larger than 5 micron in size.
The granulated activated carbon (GAC) filter removes chlorine and other organic substances such as THMs.
The carbon block filter uses tiny filtration pores to remove fine impurities and particles greater than 1 micron in size.
The RO membrane rejects total dissolved salts (TDS), heavy metals such as sodium, lead, arsenic, fluoride, nitrates, sulphates, boron, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms in water.
The last filter essentially improves the taste of the water by adding back healthy minerals into the filtered water.
