Reverse osmosis water commonly know as RO water is water that has been purified by being forced through a membrane that filters out various contaminants. When water goes through this membrane, particles that are larger than water molecules get removed from your drinking water leaving it more pure and healthy for you to drink. Contaminants such as lead, arsenic, nitrates, salts and a high percentage of fluorides can be removed using the reverse osmosis process.
Reverse osmosis means fewer contaminants in your drinking water.
Lead is a very common contaminant found in older construction, both commercial buildings and private homes. Lead in the body can result in high blood pressure, lower fertility and even nerve damage. Lead is a toxin that can even cause brain damage and anemia in small children. Reverse osmosis removes up to 99% of lead, arsenic, copper and fluoride from water and even removes dangerous parasites such as cryptosporidium which can cause severe stomach cramps and high fever.
Enjoy better tasting water.
If you enjoy a fine cup of coffee, tea or even powdered drink mixes, you will appreciate the cleaner and crisper taste that you will get using reverse osmosis water. Common contaminants such as lead, nitrates, sulfur-based compounds and high salt content in water can make it almost undrinkable. Removing unwanted contaminants using reverse osmosis can take otherwise unpleasant tasting water and make it refreshing and more enjoyable to drink.
