Is a Reverse Osmosis Filter Worth It?

Monday, December 5th, 2016

We offer a number of different options for homeowners who want to have their water purified and filtered before it enters their home. Among these options is the reverse osmosis filtration system, which is an extremely powerful type of filter. Unlike most filters that passively remove particles as water flows through them, an RO filter forces the water through its filter, which allows for it to use a more powerful filtration medium. The semi-permeable membrane filter can remove many kinds of heavy metals, pesticides, high levels of sodium, and other specific chemical contaminants that can get through other types of fitlers.

However, RO filters are more expensive than standard filters. Is going with a reverse osmosis system worth it?

It Depends on Your Home

It’s true that reverse osmosis is an advanced form of water purification technology. How advanced? It’s used in military applications and even to deal with nuclear contaminants. Those are impressive credentials! But your home isn’t a military base, nor does it run from an in-home nuclear power plant. (Well, at least we hope not.) Do you really need the immense power of RO working in your house?

The answer is, “Yes… if there is a high concentration of pollutants in the water that other filters won’t do well against.” These pollutants include dissolved salts (sometimes created by a water softener), mercury, lead, calcium, iron, and asbestos. There are some pollutants that RO won’t affect, however, such as certain volatile organic compounds, including chlorine and radon, as well as specific types of pesticides.

Water Testing Is the Answer

The way to find out if a reverse osmosis system is worth installing is to contact us to perform water testing in your house. Our experts will find out exactly what is dissolved in your water, and then use this knowledge to provide you with the best filters and purifiers to give your household clean, safe water.
