High Quality Water in Your Home: Point-Of-Use RO Filters
You may have heard of reverse-osmosis (RO) water filters. Perhaps you’ve tasted reverse-osmosis filtered water at one of your favorite restaurants and noticed the pure, refreshing taste. The same high quality filtering technology is available for your home, in point-of-use applications, as well as for the entire house. This blog will focus on point-of-use RO filters, which continue to grow in popularity in kitchen applications, and even bathrooms.
Reverse Osmosis Filters: Pure, Refreshing, Healthy Water
One of the biggest attractions of reverse-osmosis filters is the pure tasting water you’ll enjoy. The other big attraction, possibly more important, is how they can help safeguard your health and safety. RO water filters are highly effective at removing a broad range of contaminants that may be present in your water – a number of which could pose potential health risks, in high enough levels or over a long period of time. Contaminants that have been found in municipal water and in well supplies in varying levels include fluoride, nitrates, arsenic, copper, radium, and lead, as well as heightened levels of total dissolved solids (TDS), and more.
To a large extent, municipal water systems do an excellent job of delivering potable water that meets federal standards to our homes. However, standards change as scientists and healthcare officials continue to learn more, and of course no two persons are exactly alike in what chemicals or substances will interact poorly in their bodies. So why risk it, when proven solutions are available? Whether in concert with a whole-house water treatment system or working by itself, a great step to further enhance the quality of the water you drink and cook with would be to install a quality point-of-use RO filter in your kitchen. Gone will be the days of buying bulky bottled water and contributing to the plastic waste stream. Lessen your environmental footprint and drink cleaner, healthier water at home than ever before. Bathrooms are another popular location for point-of-use RO water filters.
RO filters are highly effective at removing:
- Total dissolved solids
- PFAS chemicals
- And many other common contaminants
The premium RO water filters that our team at Save Home Heat Company installs feature 4- or 5-stage filtration, incorporating a variety of proven filter technologies including sediment filters, granular and block form activated carbon, and membrane filters. In combination, these staged filters are extremely effective. Some RO products incorporate a small storage tank, for improved RO water availability. There are also ultraviolet light (UV) treatment options available, to disinfect and destroy harmful bacteria and pathogens that may be present in your water.
More Than Just Clean Drinking Water
Point-of-use RO water filters are most often installed in the kitchen in a variety of applications. A separate, reduced-flow RO water tap at the kitchen sink can complement the main faucet, supplying ultra-clean water for cooking as well as drinking, without slowing down the wheels of dishwashing. Icemakers and refrigerator water dispensers are also frequently equipped with an RO filter. Some of our customers also prefer the cleanest water possible from their bathroom sink faucets, for morning and evening washing rituals.
Complementing Whole-House Systems
If your home has a whole-house water softener, or another type of water treatment product that’s designed to handle an entire home, a point-of-use RO filter can be a great complement to further enhance its performance in chosen areas such as the kitchen. For the ultimate in whole-house water filtration, there are also high quality RO systems designed to handle the greater requirements of an entire home.
Testing Is The First Step
The first step in making an investment in a high quality water filter for any specific application or for your entire home should always be to have your water tested, so there’s no guesswork involved in deciding what product makes sense for you.
