Planning to purchase and install an RO unit in your home? This is a small investment compared to the tremendous benefits. However, you still want to make sure if it’s worth your money and if it indeed ensures removal of water contaminants.
That’s why in this short article, we’ll discuss some of the advantages and the possible disadvantages of reverse osmosis. Let’s get started.
A reverse osmosis unit can effectively remove the following:
- Aluminium, chromium, lead, mercury and other metals
- Hydrocarbons, chlorine and disinfection by-products
- Microorganisms such as E. coli
In other words, an RO system can remove almost all contaminants from the water. This means every drop that comes out of the kitchen tap is clean and pure.
In addition, a reverse osmosis system is now affordable. Back then it was expensive because of the intricate technology it possesses. But now, it’s all affordable because of the advances in materials and engineering.
It’s good to know the possible drawbacks so you’ll know what you’re paying for. This way, you can make a better informed decision.
We mentioned earlier that RO systems effectively remove almost all water contaminants. It can also be perceived as a drawback. That’s because reverse osmosis units can also remove minerals that make water taste better and healthy.
Another possible disadvantage is that some reverse osmosis units can be slow to process water. If you have a big household, it’s recommended that you have an RO unit with a large enough capacity.
