For example, the membrane may allow passage of water molecules, but blocks molecules of dissolved salt. Unwanted molecules are blocked and discarded by the membrane while the ultra-pure water continues on for use or further treatment.
This process takes any unwanted molecules retained by the membrane and sweeps them away to your drain. This filtration prevents the membrane surface from clogging, thus permitting a long performance life.
– Process is relatively slow, requires a storage tank.
– Requires a connection to your drain for wastewater.
– Production can be adversely affected by low water pressure and low temperature.
Our membranes are manufactured in the USA by DOW Chemicals (Filmtech membranes). They have an excellent rejection rate of between 92 â€“ 98% even our high capacity gallons per day membranes sustain that high rejection rate.
Positively charged ions (e.g., sodium, Na+; calcium, Ca++; magnesium, Mg++; hydrogen ion, H+; etc.) will move toward the negatively charged electrode, and negatively charged ions (e.g., chloride, Cl-; sulfate, SO4–; bicarbonate, HCO3-; etc.) will move toward the positively charged electrode.
Because these ions are charged and moving, they constitute an electrical current. The meter then monitors how much current is passing between the electrodes as a gauge of how many ions are in solution.
Minerals in water are inorganic and hard for your body to use. You get most of your minerals from food, which provides organic, easily assimilated minerals. The human body is a sophisticated instrument capable of adapting to a wide range of circumstances and capable of thriving in areas having water of high or low mineral content.
As long as water is palatable, it’s within the body’s acceptable range. However, your drinking water should contain minerals (unlike distilled which has none), otherwise nutrients in your body can be lost through your body’s waste disposal system. The main issue with water is chemicals, not minerals. Whether water contains 30 or 3 parts per million calcium isn’t really significant, but the difference between 0.5 and 5 parts per million chloroform is of life or death importance
We will undertake a direct comparison of water quality between your tap water and some tap water treated by our Reverse Omsosis system. This will show you the volume of dissolved solids (TDS) in particles per million (ppm) as well as a broad spectrum of what those contaminants are. At the same time we can assess what system is applicable for your individual requirements.
