Reverse Osmosis Systems
A Reverse Osmosis Water System also known as an RO System is the finest form of water filtration available. The film in the filter membranes is so thin it allows the removal of contaminated particles as small as individual ions. Reverse osmosis water filters soften the water in areas like Phoenix where the water that comes through the taps is hard with dissolved metals and inorganic chemicals. The reverse osmosis process removes a large amount of the salts, minerals, and metals, found in the Phoenix water supply. Essentially, an reverse osmosis water system filters dissolved metals, harmful bacteria, and other inorganic contaminants from the water to give you pure, clean, contaminant free water.

How do RO Systems work
Reverse osmosis water systems are composed of a series of pre-filters, an RO membrane, and a holding tank for the filtered water. The pre-filters are used to remove a large amount of contaminants before the water reaches the reverse osmosis membrane. The semi-permeable RO membrane is used to filter the remainder of the contaminants in the water. Pure water passes easily through the membranes and into a pressurized holding tank where it can then be delivered to your counter top. The particles that are too big to pass through the membrane are filtered out to flow down a drainage pipe. Even though RO filters use a self-cleaning system, it is necessary to change the pre-filters as well as the RO membrane at regular intervals to insure the integrity of the system.
Reverse Osmosis Water Systems are an excellent choice for the pre-treated municipal water system of Phoenix, Arizona. Reverse osmosis systems function well for almost all home water treatment needs. It also is the preferred method of treating water for industrial buildings, hotels, and restaurants. Many bottled water companies use reverse osmosis water filters for their primary water filtering systems. RO systems are generally the best filtration option for homes in agricultural areas, where the nitrite levels in the water are high.
We can see then that water filtration is something that can still add health benefits even to municipal water supplies. There are many filters on the market but none with the performance of an reverse osmosis system.
