Tips From Joe – Mar 29 2021
Let’s Talk Drinking Water!
You’ve probably heard about them before, but what’s a Reverse Osmosis System? A reverse osmosis system removes sediment and chlorine from water with a prefilter before it forces water through a semipermeable membrane to remove dissolved solids. After water exits the RO membrane, it passes through a postfilter to polish the drinking water before it enters a dedicated faucet. Reverse osmosis systems have various stages depending on their number of prefilters and postfilters.
But what’s the huge tank under the sink for? An RO storage tank holds reverse osmosis water so you have plenty to use when you need it. A reverse osmosis system makes water slowly. It takes one minute to produce two to three ounces of RO water. If you were to turn on your faucet for a glass of water at the actual membrane production rate, then you would have to wait at least 5 minutes for it to fill. With a storage tank, your glass fills instantly.
And what are the benefits? A reverse osmosis system is one of the most extensive methods of filtration. It removes 98% of dissolved solids, which makes it healthier to drink.
- Harmful dissolved contaminants reduced
- Sodium reduced
- Bad tastes and odors reduced
- More environmentally friendly than bottled water
- Easy to install and maintain
- Fits under the kitchen sink

Choosing A Reverse Osmosis System. When selecting an RO system, make sure you select a system with multiple filters to effectively remove all contaminants from your water. You’ll also want to consider the size of the storage tank. Be sure it can hold enough water for your household to access easily on a daily basis.
