If you have considered installing a reverse osmosis (RO) water filtration system in Fort Worth, and have questions, the following may assist you. The process of reverse osmosis uses water pressure and a semi-permeable membrane capable of removing 99% of the impurities from the water. Water pressure forces water through the membrane leaving impurities behind to be discharged from the collection tank.
Reverse osmosis is one the most effective water filtration systems available. The list of impurities the system will remove is extensive, and includes the heavy metals carbon filtration systems are incapable of removing. However, the system requires a carbon prefilter to remove the water treatment chemical chlorine, which can damage the RO membrane.
There are a wide variety of water filtration systems available, and these systems are built for specific purposes in filtering out substances. For example, one filter may remove a group of 25 impurities, while another can remove 50, for example. A water quality report is the first step in determining the system needed for your household’s water supply. With the report in hand, you can match your needs to a specific water filtration system, whether through carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, a water softener, or any combination. Either type of water filtration can provide you with odor free water, lacking unpleasant tastes.
For homeowner’s who wish only to remove chlorine, basic carbon filtration will suffice. However, when other contaminants, toxins or heavy metals are present, you will need to match the contaminate list with a qualifying water filtration system in Fort Worth.
In addition, systems are available that combine carbon filtration and reverse osmosis, for an extremely effective water filtration system in Fort Worth. Unfortunately, homeowner’s are often sold water filtration systems with the claim of removing the minerals from hard water. A water filtration system is incapable of removing the dissolved minerals in hard water. A water softener is required for this task.
