Reverse osmosis: What you need to know

Terry Leamon of My Maricopa Plumber.

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification process that uses a partially permeable membrane to remove ions, unwanted molecules and larger particles from drinking water. RO systems have four components.

Larger particles, such as silt, rust and scale, are removed by the prefilter. This extends the life of your system and allows the semipermeable membrane to attack smaller particles.

The center of the system, the RO membrane allows hydrogen and oxygen to pass through the microscopic pores. Dissolved solids too small to have been caught by the prefilter are removed from the water and flushed to the drain.

Final Polish
Water flows from the membrane to holding tank, which stores the clean water until your turn on your faucet. But before the water is dispensed, it flows through one more state of filtration. An activated carbon filter removes any remaining tastes and orders, delivering only the freshest, cleanest water possible.

Fast Recovery
The fast recovery system refills your tank quickly, producing enough water for all your needs. Certified for peace of mind.

Our go-to reverse osmosis system manufacturer is Ultima. All Ultima RO systems are built-to-order and use only the highest quality components on the market.

Ultima ROs are built in the United States. Every system is tested for water quality and structural integrity. Do not make the mistake of saving a few dollars and buying a system of inferior materials that is not tested for quality.

Ultima ROs produce great-tasting water and eliminate the need to keep buying bottled water. This means your RO will pay for itself in a short amount of time. That’s why, with over 500,000 sold, Ultima ROs are a great choice.

Green RO 5 stage is the newest technology. It wastes one-third the water of a normal RO and produces up to 75 gallons per day. It boasts the highest quality components, a 3.2-gallon storage tank and a standard chrome faucet with the option to upgrade to another finish or style.
