A RO Water dispenser
removes toxins and impurities, and delivers clean water on demand. These filtration appliances are compact, easy to install and are ideal for apartments or RVs.
Countertop filters come in two categories: those that connect directly to a faucet and those that don’t. The former category includes models like the AquaTru and both Waterdrop RO systems; while the latter has a tank that collects unfiltered water and dispenses filtered water through a faucet.
Reverse osmosis is an effective method of removing dissolved solids and other contaminants from water that can affect its taste and appearance. Its efficacy depends on the quality of the water supply and the amount of pressure it can handle.
When choosing a reverse osmosis system, make sure the manufacturer’s water test reports indicate that the device is able to remove a wide range of contaminants. Some products may not do so, which can result in a higher maintenance cost and less efficient operation.
These devices also need to be flushed out regularly. To do this, open the tap and drain 3-5 gallons of water until the filter is completely empty.
A few systems have reminder lights that will flash when it’s time to change the filters. This will reduce the risk of the membrane becoming clogged and decreasing performance.
Reverse osmosis is a great way to make sure your family has fresh, clean drinking water at all times, but it does require a little upkeep. You’ll need to change the RO membrane, prefilters and postfilters periodically.
