How It Works

The reverse osmosis process is highly effective, removing more contaminants than any other technology. The process is slow, however, so a storage tank is always required. Typically RO systems are installed under the kitchen sink, and a dedicated faucet is used to supply water produced by the reverse osmosis system.

Components include, pre filters, the RO membrane, post filter, storage tank, dedicated faucet, feed water valve, saddle valve for waste water and tubing. The unit connects to your cold water line under your kitchen sink.

Six Step Process

Step 1

During step #1, your water is filtered by the first cartridge, removing sediment, particulate, rust particles and other solids.

Step 2

Next, your water is filtered by the second cartridge, removing Chlorine, Chloramines, tastes, odors, VOCs, PCBs, Nitrates, and other harmful chemicals.

Step 3

During the important step #3, the reverse osmosis membrane removes harmful contaminants, which are in solution. Most of these are the most undesirable, including Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Fluoride, Sodium and harmful by-products produced during the Chlorination process, called Trihalomethanes.

Step 4

During step #4, the RO processed water flows to the storage tank so it's readily available when needed, and the "bad" water, which is rejected by the membrane flows to drain.

Step 5

When purified water is needed, your water flows through the post-carbon cartridge for final polishing for improved taste.

Step 6

Great tasting RO processed water is provided from the dedicated faucet, conveniently mounted on your counter top, next to your kitchen sink.
