What Is a Reverse Osmosis System?

Dependable Service Since 1926

If you have concerns about your drinking water, you may want to consider a reverse osmosis water treatment system for your Aurora home. While the process sounds very high tech, it’s really quite simple, as long as the system is installed correctly. This is where Bell Plumbing and Heating can help. Not only can we install your reverse osmosis system, we can help you maintain it over the years so you have the best drinking water possible. But first, let’s take a look at how the system works.

How RO Works

Osmosis is the process by which by which a fluid becomes isotonic – equal in both level and content after passing through a semi-permeable membrane. With osmosis, the fluid can flow easily back and forth so that the liquid can be equal on both sides of the membrane. Reverse osmosis is the opposite process. Instead of water flowing freely back and forth between the membrane, it is forced through; this process helps to separate the contaminants from the water. The end result is that pure, clean water resides on one side of the membrane and the contaminants stay on the other.

The RO Tank

One of the benefits of the reverse osmosis system is that the purified water is contained in a tank for use. The tank and system are installed under your kitchen sink and a thin, separate spigot is installed near your faucet so you can access the purified water separate from your faucet’s water. The tank contains sensors that allow it to refill when the water drops to a specific level.

Benefits of a Reverse Osmosis System

Here are some of the benefits a reverse osmosis system can offer you:

  • 99% contaminant-free water and ice
  • Odor-free water and ice
  • Doesn’t need any energy to filter the water
  • Doesn’t require a lot of maintenance
  • Is installed away from view

Having healthy drinking water can be just a touch away with a reverse osmosis system.
