RO Systems vs. Water Filters

When it comes to ensuring the quality of your home's water supply, two popular options are reverse osmosis (RO) systems and traditional water filters. Both serve the purpose of improving water quality, but they have different mechanisms and applications.

A water filter works by employing a physical or chemical mechanism to remove impurities and contaminants from water as it passes through the filter medium. A reverse osmosis (RO) system works by using a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities and contaminants from water.

Our water specialists are here to help you find the right system for your needs.

Reverse Osmosis Systems:

  • Filtration Process: RO systems use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities, contaminants, and minerals from water. This process involves forcing water through the membrane, leaving behind pollutants and providing you with clean, purified water.
  • Removes Contaminants: RO systems are highly effective at eliminating a wide range of impurities, including heavy metals, chemicals, bacteria, and viruses. They can significantly improve the taste and odor of water.
  • Great for Drinking Water: If you're primarily concerned with drinking and cooking water quality, RO systems are an excellent choice. They deliver water that's pure and safe for consumption.
  • Wastewater Generation: One drawback of RO systems is that they produce wastewater as a byproduct of the filtration process. This can lead to higher water bills and environmental concerns.

Water Filters:

  • Filtration Mechanism: Traditional water filters, such as carbon filters or sediment filters, work by physically trapping impurities and contaminants as water flows through them. These filters use materials like activated carbon or ceramic to remove particles and improve taste and odor.
  • Specific Contaminant Removal: Water filters are effective at removing specific contaminants like chlorine, sediment, and some types of bacteria. They are less comprehensive than RO systems in terms of the range of impurities they can eliminate.
  • Ease of Installation: Water filters are generally easier to install and maintain than RO systems. Many can be attached to faucets or used in pitcher-style containers.
  • Less Wasteful: Water filters do not produce wastewater, making them more water-efficient compared to RO systems.
