Exploring the Benefits of Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration Systems

We know that it is difficult at times to know that the water you are drinking is contaminated, which is why we have designed scientifically proven methods of purifying water. One such approach is Reverse Osmosis (RO). Mineral salts, iron and violations of health standards can contribute to your water being unfit for consumption, but wait—got solutions to that Renewell Water has experienced professionals who can help reverse the water problem in your home, office, or agricultural farm.

Reverse osmosis, according to our scientific screening methods, remains the most effective method that filters potentially harmful elements from water. The effectiveness of this method makes RO water highly recommended by healthcare professionals. The benefits of drinking reverse osmosis water are insurmountable.

Reverse Osmosis Systems Remove Contaminants

Contaminated water and its negative effects on health have been making a lot of headlines lately.

  • lead
  • arsenic
  • copper
  • nitrates and nitrites (hexavalent & trivalent)
  • chromium
  • selenium
  • fluoride
  • radium
  • barium
  • a cyst (cryptosporidium)
  • total dissolved solids (TDS)

If pure water is what you want, a reverse osmosis drinking system is what you need!

Reverse Osmosis Reduces Sodium from Soft Water

Water softeners are specifically designed to remove hard minerals from the water. Water softeners solve a lot of hard water problems, but they are not meant to for purification.

The water softener in your home gives you water that’s excellent for cleaning, bathing, and laundry. However, not everyone enjoys the taste of softened water.

Remember, in the ion exchange process your water softener uses, hard minerals are replaced with sodium molecules. You could still have a high level of total dissolved solids, which will impact the taste. Reverse osmosis filters out the sodium that your water softener adds.

A reverse osmosis drinking water system partnered with a water softener allows you to enjoy the benefits of both soft water and purified drinking water. Plus, R.O. systems are more efficient when they start with soft water.

You’ll Stop Buying Bottled Water

If you don’t like the taste of your tap water, or you’re concerned about what might be in it, there’s a good chance you’re buying bottled water all the time.

Bottled water is expensive. Those plastic bottles create a lot of waste as they all too often go unrecycled and end up in landfills. Plus, the bottom line is much of that bottled water isn’t as pure as you think. It’s just filtered tap water.

In the U.S., one study found we spent more than $15 billion on bottled water in 2015.

A reverse osmosis system will pay for itself in no time because you’ll only be paying pennies per gallon. Plus, whenever you need clean drinking water, it’s right there at the tap.

It’s Better for Cooking

The impurities in your home’s water are going to affect the taste of the food you make.

That makes a lot of sense when you think about it because the water you cook with often ends up in your food. When you boil pasta, make soups, or bake homemade bread, pure water can make a big difference.

If you’re using municipal tap water for cooking, there’s a good chance you have too much chlorine in it. That will not only cause food to taste odd, it discolors it as well.

You’ll also find that coffee and tea taste better with reverse osmosis water.

It’s Better for Cooking

Have you ever noticed how when you make ice cubes they tend to look white and cloudy?

The reason for that is the impurities and gasses in your water, which crystalize as it freezes. Ice forms from the outside in, and as this happens the impurities are forced to the center of the ice cube, resulting in the cloudy appearance.

If you like making eye-catching cocktails, crystal clear ice cubes will look fantastic in your drinks. But there’s more! Cloudy ice cubes have been shown to be softer and melt faster than clear ice cubes with pure water from a reverse osmosis system. That means ice cubes made with an R.O. will keep your drinks cool longer without watering them down as much.

Reverse Osmosis Has Improved Taste


Although taste, by all standards, is a subjective aspect, research has shown that reverse osmosis water is rated as having the best taste compared to tap water. Blind taste tests have shown that reverse osmosis water is preferred over tap water, as tap water has traces of sulfur, lead, nitrates and other compounds that make it unpalatable. The process of removing these molecular compounds from tap water allows people to drink cleaner, tastier and fresher water than tap water.

Reverse Osmosis Water Tastes Delicious

Perhaps the best reason to have reverse osmosis drinking water in your home is how great the water tastes! When you remove all those impurities, you’re left with nothing but clean, refreshing water.

In addition to the membrane that filters contaminants, Water-Right’s reverse osmosis systems send your drinking water through three carbon filters before it comes out of the tap. The last carbon filter is simply a “polishing” filter to make sure any lingering tastes or odors are removed.

Are There Any Disadvantages?

The only thing skeptics of reverse osmosis can point to as a disadvantage is that reverse osmosis systems filter out minerals, which they assume are valuable to their health.

In reality, you should be getting most of the mineral your body needs from the food you eat.

Furthermore, the dissolved mineral found in drinking water are organic, which means your body has a difficult time absorbing them. This negates any potential health benefits.

For those who are concerned about losing out on mineral intake, you can always look for mineral supplements. Some people will put a pinch of sea salt in their reverse osmosis water.

The bottom line is that the impressive benefits of reverse osmosis water far outweigh any minor objections.

Benefits for Your Health

Among the other impurities that RO processes remove are bacteria and other types of microorganisms. Particularly these days, we all want our water to be as clean and pure as possible. This benefits people who are going through cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, as well as anyone with a compromised immune system.

It’s not just the most vulnerable members of the population who can benefit, however. After all, everyone is at risk from lead and cryptosporidium parasites, just to name two possible contaminants of ordinary tap water. Lead has incredibly damaging effects on the human body. Cryptosporidium parasites can lead to fever, cramps, and diarrhea, especially in younger people.

Lastly, RO filters remove sodium from the water. As you are probably aware, there is plenty of sodium in the foods we eat, especially for anyone who ever eats processed food or fast food. We certainly don’t need any more in our water! Lowering sodium intake will help reduce the risk of high blood pressure, kidney issues, and liver disease.

Family Drinks More Water

Installing an RO system in your home will give your household clean, great-tasting water to drink and cook with. In fact, many families have found that after installing a reverse osmosis drinking water system, family members tend to drink more water and consume less soda or other sugary drinks.

Save Yourself Some Money

Bottled water might not seem that expensive when you put it in your grocery cart at the supermarket. However, even that minor cost will add up over the months and years of your life. Any kind of filter system is going to win, hands-down when it comes to economic comparisons to bottled water.

What about RO filters in particular? Well, they tend to be less fussy than other filter systems, which means they require very little in the way of maintenance. You will need to change the filters to make sure your water is as clear and clean as possible. That should take place every six months, or possibly more often, depending on your water source and how much wear-and-tear is put on the filtering system.

Simple Maintenance

While some water filtration and purification systems are cumbersome and time-consuming to maintain, a reverse osmosis filtration system is quite easy. Simply change out the filters and membranes according to your system’s manual. And if you buy from Renewell water we’ll send you a reminder when it’s time to order a replacement filter! Most filters are replaced every six to 12 months and the membrane should be replaced every two years. This length can vary depending on the water quality in your area and how much you use your RO system.
