Why Choose Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System?
Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System are beneficial in some industrial applications and the portable units have military and missionary applications.
Army field units and aid giving missionaries can use portable reverse osmosis units to extract and filter water of very poor quality, creating"potable" water. Reverse osmosis water filtration systems will, for the most part, prevent immediate illness from biological contamination. They won't filter out pesticides and other chemical contaminants, but the adverse health effects of those are typically long-term.
That is one of the major drawbacks to reverse osmosis units. Reverse osmosis water filtration systems only do part of the job.
In order to remove chemicals, such as chlorine which must be added to prevent algae from growing on the filter and to kill microscopic bacteria, water must be run through additional filters. Even water treatment facilities do not stop with reverse osmosis units. It's only one step.
Even after chlorination and a run through reverse osmosis water filtration systems, water can still contain tiny parasites (cryptosporidium for example). They are resistant to chlorine disinfection. Only a micron filtration system that effectively removes cysts (a stage in the life of the parasite) can block them.
Treatment facilities use their reverse osmosis units to filter out raw sewage, mud, dirt particles, algae and other larger pollutants. If you have cloudy, dirty water that does not come from a public treatment facility, then you probably need reverse osmosis water filtration systems, other wise, they are a waste...a waste of money, time and water. /
