WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF A REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM?
In 2014, Americans consumed more than 10 billion gallons of bottled water, in many cases as an effort to avoid the harmful chemicals in their own tap water. However, more and more Americans are turning away from bottled water due to the expense and the damage that so many plastic bottles cause to the environment. Fortunately, reverse osmosis systems allow homeowners to enjoy healthy water all throughout their homes.
Reverse Osmosis or (RO) is one of the best water filtration methods for drinking water. It takes your hard tap water and forces it through a membrane, and it passes through this membrane, it leaves upwards of 95% to 99% of the contaminants behind. It removes chlorine, high TDS (contaminants), extreme pHs, calcium, and hard mineral deposits from your water, leaving behind only pure, great tasting water.
Here are some common health benefits of a Reverse Osmosis system:
Reverse Osmosis systems remove heavy pesticides and herbicides from your tap water. Studies have shown that much of the nations water supply carries these toxins in the water due to our heavy use of these products. American drinking water also often has unhealthy levels of lead. With a Reverse Osmosis system, you never need to worry about exposing yourself to this dangerous metal.
When you have a Reverse Osmosis system in place, you know for a fact that you water is purified, which brings peace of mind. Our water supply is tainted with pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and dangerous bacteria. The Reverse Osmosis process reduces all of the unhealthy particles in your water.
Better tasting water
Water that comes from a Reverse Osmosis system tastes better. You won’t have to worry about any pungent algae flavor, “rotten-egg smells”, and other foul tastes that often accompany tap water. It also removes unpleasant odors from your water supply, which often happens to city tap water during the summer months.
