There is a reason why many people are more hesitant to drink water straight from their sink versus the water that comes from, say, their refrigerator water dispenser. The answer is the filtration of the water.
Well filtered water is often better tasting to drink and, for human beings, that translates to being safer to drink too. While faucet water isn’t going to make us sick, it may have higher levels of certain metals or minerals that you’d rather not ingest.
With this in mind, we’d like to bring up the idea of installing a water filter into your plumbing system. This makes it easier to get access to filtered water without a refrigerator distillation system or a pitcher for filtration.
Here is what you need to know about installing a reverse osmosis system as your whole-house water treatment system in Tampa.
What a reverse osmosis system does
There is more than one type of water treatment system out there but today we are focusing on reverse osmosis systems. These water filtration systems involve two separate pressure systems, with one part of the semi-permeable membrane having a higher pressure than the other. This allows the water to pass through the membranes to pull out debris, chemicals, and salts, leaving behind clean, pure water.
The benefits of installing a reverse osmosis system
If you decide to install a reverse osmosis system into your home’s plumbing system, then you’ll likely want to make sure it actually will help your home. Here are the benefits that you’ll likely enjoy:
- Better tasting and smelling water: With all of the contaminants that a reverse osmosis system removes from your water supply, you will be able to enjoy better tasting and better smelling water. This can even help improve the taste of your food1
- Better plumbing health: A reverse osmosis water treatment system removes a variety of minerals and salts from your water that could run the risk of creating scaling inside of your home’s piping.
- Less plastic use: When you can get easily drinkable water from your sink, you are less likely to get plastic water bottles. You can just refill a reusable water bottle rather than getting packages of plastic bottles repeatedly.
