Reverse Osmosis FAQs: Curated by One of the Leading Water Purifier Companies

15th Sep admin

When Reverse osmosis, popularly known as RO, is the most advanced water purification technology for domestic use. Let us understand how an RO water purifier works and different kinds of water purification technologies available in the market.  

As one of the leading water purifier companies, we answer some of the frequently asked questions to help you choose the right RO water purifier: 

Check out FAQs on RO water purifier, its working, price and other important features 

 

  • What is reverse osmosis? 

To understand reverse osmosis, you must first understand the principles of osmosis. Water is transported through a membrane by osmosis.  It ensures that all living things have adequate water pressure. 

In the human body, osmosis plays a very big role, in getting nutrients out of food and getting waste products out of the blood. In the biological osmosis process, the solvent naturally moves through a membrane. 

Reverse osmosis is a process where pressure is applied to push the water through a semipermeable membrane. The water with a high concentration of contaminants moves to a low concentration of contaminants. So the contaminated water must pass through a filter. Contaminants are trapped in the filter and only clean water passes through.

  • What is the difference between RO and a regular water filter? 

Ordinary water filters only screen physical contaminants such as dirt and sediment particles and they do not remove dissolved chemical contaminants, biological contaminants and other impurities. A regular filter collects all the dirt on its surface, blocking it. In RO water purifiers, only clean water goes through the membrane and impurities drain away with the rejected water. This keeps the surface of the membrane free from contaminants.

  • What are the benefits of RO? 

RO water purifiers offer myriad benefits such as 

  1. They remove microbiological impurities such as viruses, bacteria, fungus and parasites. These cause diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid.
  2. Moreover, they remove metallic impurities such as nitrates, heavy metals and pesticides that make water unfit for drinking. 
  3. Combining RO water purification with UV or UF can give you water free of any form of impurities. Our water purifiers come in a combination of RO+UV, RO+UF and RO+UF+TDS Controller + Essential Minerals Technology. 
  • Does RO water purifier improve the taste? 

The impurities can make the water taste salty. By removing Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), RO water purifiers can add to the taste of the water. Thus, for better taste, our water purifiers have Essential Minerals Technology that helps in retaining important minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc. These minerals add a sweeter and better taste to water. 

  • When should we change RO filters and membrane? 

The frequency of changing filters and membranes depends on the water quality. Changing the filter is necessary if the water has a high TDS level.

  • Is RO good enough? 

For sure, RO is one of the most advanced water purification systems. For instance, it removes harmful chemicals and bio-degradable waste and bacteria but it also removes useful essential minerals present in the water. Thus, our water purifiers combine RO with other technologies so that you can get safe and mineral-enriched water. Look for the following features when buying our RO water purifier: 

  1.  Essential Mineral Technology: It ensures that minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc are retained in the water. 
  2. Black Silica: Our select RO water purifiers come with Black Silica that helps improve immunity.
  3. Carbon: With NSF-Approved Carbon inside, our Crystal water purifier gives you antioxidant-rich water. 
  • What is the price of RO? 

The price of water purifiers depends on various factors such as the number of water purification stages, the material of the body and storage capacity.
