Do you have “hard” water? Does your bathtub sport telltale rust stains?

If you answer yes to either of these questions about a property you own, then you may need a reverse osmosis water system.

You may be asking: What’s that? Simply put, reverse osmosis water systems are tools that allow for your tap water to be softer than it originally is. Thanks to this not-so-complicated but still-intriguing science, you, your family and coworkers, and even your tenants if you have any, can drink water that doesn’t taste like sulfur.

Care to find out how water becomes pure in unfortunate “hard water” areas? Read on to learn how reverse osmosis actually works and why your money is well-spent on such a setup.

1. How It Works

A reverse osmosis system is a water filtration device that uses a semi-porous membrane which removes ions, unwanted molecules, and larger particles out of drinking water. To put it in simple terms, this type of filter gets rid of all the yucky stuff in the water that’s both too small to see and too difficult to get rid of any other way.

This system consists of a high-powered pump that forces saltwater across the semi-absorbent membrane or filtering screen. Ninety-five to ninety-nine percent of dissolvable salts are left behind once this process is through.

2. Why Use Reverse Osmosis Water Systems?

As a business owner or homeowner, you want to use this system because reverse osmosis systems filter all traces of lead, first and foremost. As a health benefit, they can dramatically decrease the potential for high blood pressure, as well as kidney and liver problems in humans.

Although man has been filtering water since ancient Rome in 500 BC, it wasn’t until the 1970s that civilization began using the very first reverse osmosis systems. Of course, today’s reverse osmosis water systems are more advanced and slightly more costly, but this is the case for good reason. As years have passed, filtration technology has gotten even better and your everyday water is bound to be purer.

3. How Do You Get This System?

Whether it be a whole-home residential reverse osmosis system or a commercial reverse osmosis water system, you should always rely on a licensed plumber to complete the installation. They should also handle any and all applicable plumbing adjustments. If an advanced filtration system such as this one is not installed properly, it won’t work well (if at all). Simply put, if you install it yourself, it won’t be worth the money you spent on it.

So whether you want a cool glass of water on your day off, or a purified drink from a company-wide system, a reverse osmosis water system is definitely a must-have. Contact The Bosworth Company today to have one installed at your home or office. We are Worth the Call. Always.
