With over 2100 known carcinogens in our water supply, and countless other contaminants it’s no wonder the water filter industry is growing at over 3 billion dollars in sales a year worldwide. If you do not have a water filter of some kind, you may want to consider buying one soon.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a filtration method that removes many types of large molecules and ions from solutions. It works by applying positive pressure to a solution on one side of a selective membrane. The result is that undesired molecules/ions are kept on the pressurized side while the pure solvent is allowed to pass through.
RO is used commonly for a number of water treatment applications. It is very effective in reducing many contaminants ranging from toxic metals like lead to harmful protozoa like Cryptosporidium that causes diarrhea.
Everclean provides a state-of-the-art, four-stage reverse osmosis unit for under-sink installation that is second to none. This one-piece manifold system performs well beyond standard water filtration units provided in pitcher filters and “end-of-the-tap” filter systems that are typically available.
The stages of this NSF tested and certified reverse osmosis system include:
- A 5-micron sediment filter to reduce sediment and rust;
- A 5-micron carbon block filter to reduce chlorine taste and odor;
- A high production RO membrane that reduces water impurities down to 1 ten-thousandth of A micron
- A carbon block filter that will further enhance the water’s taste.
