While most have their water provided by their local city, around 12% of the population of Florida relies on wells to get access to water. For some, this may be their only way of accessing clean water for their home—whether it’s used for drinking, cleaning, or appliances. If you’re a part of that 12%, it is important to ensure that your water is filtered properly to keep you and your family safe from contaminants. One way we recommend you filter your water is through a reverse osmosis water filter system.
Reverse osmosis is a filtration system that provides water treatment for your home. This system has a membrane that filters out and removes any chemicals, contaminants, or impurities that may be in your well water. Any solids are disposed of, and you’re left with pure, clean water that tastes great.
Many cities in the United States use reverse osmosis water filtration systems to produce clean water for their residents; however, reverse osmosis is also a great option for you at home!
Whether or not you’re actively looking for a new water filtration system for your home, there are several benefits associated with reverse osmosis that are beneficial for you and your family. We’ll explain just a few of the key benefits we’ve seen from installing reverse osmosis water purification systems.
Reserve osmosis is one of the best systems to remove contaminants from water. It is easily able to remove any dirt or debris that has gotten in your water supply, and it can also remove harmful metal ions and chemicals. It can filter out and reduce—or completely remove—traces of:
There is even evidence that it can filter out dangerous bacteria like E. coli and viruses such as Hepatitis A. Generally, reverse osmosis can remove up to 98% of contaminants found in water, making it one of the most effective filtration systems available.
One key advantage of installing a reverse osmosis system into your home is that it’ll save you money over time. There are two main ways it does this.
First, if you don’t already have clean water, you may be relying on bottled water for drinking water. While this is a good solution, bottled water can be quite expensive, especially if you need to purchase it for everyday use. With reverse osmosis purification, you are getting the same quality of water—if not better quality—without needing to add it to your grocery bill.
Second, reverse osmosis is energy energy-efficient method of purifying water. Unlike other water filtration systems, reverse osmosis does not require electricity to run. It simply uses water pressure to filter itself out. While it may cost a bit more to install than other systems, it will eventually pay for itself with savings in energy and peace of mind about what you’re drinking,
As we mentioned before, often the solution to not having on-demand, clean water is buying bottled water. The world has become more and more aware of how damaging plastics can be to the environment, and bottled water can play a huge role in this. Being able to reduce the amount of one-use plastic water bottles while also providing clean drinking water makes reverse osmosis an environmentally friendly option for filtration.
One of the common water problems we see in Florida is hard water. Hard water can cause a variety of problems for you and your home that can be costly to repair. There are a few ways to treat hard water, but one way to both get rid of hard water and filter your water is by installing a reverse osmosis water filtration system.
Reverse osmosis removes most if not all of the minerals that cause hard water. This will help your water taste better, help your hair and skin feel soft, and keep your appliances from building up a potentially damaging layer of limestone and minerals. Rather than trying to find and install a water softener, reverse osmosis filters are a great way to achieve two goals with one system.
