Reverse Osmosis Systems

What Is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse osmosis, also known as RO, is an extremely efficient method of purifying water that employs a semipermeable membrane to eliminate ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water. By exerting pressure, this process forces water through the membrane, effectively separating it from any impurities. The outcome is pristine, secure, and delicious-tasting water that is perfect for domestic purposes.

Utah municipal water has on average over 50 contaminants in it’s drinking water. With regular maintenance, a reverse osmosis (RO systems) can ensure the delivery of clean drinking water in your Utah home and ensure your family and friends are safe from contaminants.

Why Choose Reverse Osmosis for Drinking Water in Utah? Opting for reverse osmosis in your Utah residence offers several compelling benefits: Health and Safety: By eliminating harmful contaminants, RO systems guarantee that your drinking water is safe and healthy, safeguarding you and your family from waterborne illnesses. Improved Taste and Odor: Many residents notice an enhancement in the taste and odor of the water after installing an RO system.

Utah Reverse Osmosis Systems

Water sources in Utah can vary greatly, often containing high levels of minerals and contaminants due to the unique geology of the region. Reverse osmosis systems are particularly effective in Utah because they: Address Hard Water Issues: Utah is known for its hard water, which contains high levels of calcium and magnesium. RO systems can significantly reduce these minerals, preventing scale buildup and prolonging the lifespan of your appliances. Remove Specific Contaminants: The arid climate and mining activities can lead to elevated levels of arsenic, uranium, and other contaminants in the water supply. RO systems are designed to filter out these specific impurities, providing safer drinking water. Adapt to Local Needs: Our Utah-based RO systems are customized to tackle the specific water challenges found in the state, ensuring optimal performance and water quality.

Considerations for Using Reverse Osmosis for Utah Water

When contemplating the use of reverse osmosis in your household, it is crucial to comprehend its advantages and limitations: 

  • Enhanced Water Quality: Reverse osmosis (RO) systems significantly enhance water quality by eliminating contaminants such as lead, arsenic, nitrates, chlorine, and various organic compounds. 
  • Water Wastage: The process does generate some wastewater. However, modern systems are becoming more efficient, with a better ratio of purified water to wastewater. 
  • Maintenance: Regular maintenance, including the replacement of filters and membranes, is necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the system. 
  • Mineral Removal: RO eliminates both harmful contaminants and beneficial minerals. This can be mitigated by incorporating a remineralization filter into the system.
The reverse osmotic filtration process involves a semipermeable membrane and a set of filters. The water is filtered and then pushed through the membrane using osmotic pressure. As the water passes through the system, the sediment filter removes large particles. Finally, the membrane separates dissolved and suspended solids.
