5 Reverse Osmosis Water Myths

What is Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water?

Reverse osmosis water is a treatment method that forces tap water through a semi-permeable membrane. This removes contaminants that can alter the taste, smell, and quality of water. The filter allows purified water to pass through, but rejects solids such as sodium, arsenic, and lead.

Reverse osmosis water systems can provide better tasting water and can save money by eliminating costly issues associated with untreated well or municipal water. These issues include iron stains and scale buildup, which can reduce the longevity of sinks, toilets, and appliances.

Reverse osmosis water treatment does not have to be intimidating. In fact, it can be simple and low maintenance. The hardest part is understanding the fancy name. But once you do, you’ll see that there’s no need to be a scientist or an engineer to use a reverse osmosis purifier. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Choose a system that is the right size for your needs.
  • Install the system in a convenient location.
  • Change the filters regularly.
  • Test the water regularly to make sure it is meeting your needs.

With a little care, a reverse osmosis system can provide you with years of clean, fresh water.

1) You do not need a whole house unit

When you think of home water treatment, you might think of big filters the size of a hot water tank, with pipes and tubes running through your walls. The price tag for whole house water treatment can be hefty, too.

But there’s a more affordable and space-saving option: a 5-stage under-sink water filter system. The Watts 525 Pro Unit fits neatly under your kitchen sink, laundry room sink, or any other convenient location. It’s available for purchase or rent for just $30 per month.

Don’t think you’re being cheap by choosing this option. Consumer Reports and other independent reviewers have praised the Watts 525 Pro Unit for its effectiveness and ease of use. It’s also suitable for most well water supplies, but you should have a professional test your water to confirm its suitability.

With a 5-stage under-sink water filter system, you can enjoy fresh reverse osmosis water at home without breaking the bank.

2) Filter packs are expensive and I have to remember to change them.

Replacement filter packs are expensive. Remembering to change them is difficult. If you are the one who has to do it. The rental option is different. It comes with free filter packs for life. They are replaced by a professional on a regular schedule. You do not have to do a thing.

3) I will just use my refrigerator filter.

Refrigerator filters have provided millions of families with easily accessible, high-quality water. But there are a few drawbacks.

Refrigerator filters use a single-stage, small carbon filter. These filters can remove some contaminants and smells, but not chlorine or pharmaceuticals. A five-stage under-sink filter can remove these contaminants and more.

It has also been reported that the effectiveness of refrigerator filters decreases over time. This means that you may not be getting the same level of filtration as you did when you first installed the filter.

If you are looking for a more effective water filtration system, you may want to consider a five-stage under-sink filter. These filters are more expensive than refrigerator filters, but they can provide you with cleaner, healthier water.

4) I have a water softener – isn’t that enough?

Here is the thing, if you have a water softener you are actually in more need of an RO system. Water softeners are designed to reduce the hardness of your water, which is far different from purification. Sodium ions are used for softening; common sense tells us that we are then ingesting a higher level of sodium through our faucets. Filtration/ RO is needed to bring it back down to acceptable levels.

Also, a water softener does nothing to improve the taste of your H2O. Some have even said it makes it taste worse- I believe that is a personal preference but, it is not without merit. Reverse osmosis and water softeners are a perfect marriage of everything needed for a high-quality water source, i.e. soft AND purified water.

5) I will not know what to do if something goes wrong.

Troubleshooting a reverse osmosis water cooler can be daunting, but it is rare to need to do so. The Watts Pro 525 comes with free service calls for life, so you can relax knowing that a professional will be there to help if anything goes wrong. Filtered and RO water has many benefits, including:
