What is Reverse Osmosis?
RO systems work by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane that separates the clean water at the molecular level from the majority of impurities. Impurities including sodium, calcium, chloride, sulfates, and heavy metals commonly measured as total dissolved solids (TDS) are typically reduced by 99% and rinsed down the drain. Premier RO systems use proven treatment methods including sediment, carbon, and membrane technology to produce highly-purified, great-tasting water.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a proven and dependable technology.
In modern home units, water delivered by normal city water pressure, first flows through a sediment pre-filter which removes any dirt and small particles that are in the water, next a carbon pre-filter, which removes organic contaminants including chlorine and its by-products. Then, it enters the reverse osmosis membrane, a very tight, sheet-like filter, which allows water to pass but rejects dissolved solids like sodium and impurities like lead and arsenic. Some of the water entering the unit is used to cleanse the membrane surface and flows to the kitchen drainpipes. The purified water is stored in a small storage tank until it is needed. When the faucet mounted on the sink is opened, the purified water is forced by air pressure through another carbon filter, which gives it a final polish and from there to the faucet. (This is a simplified description of a 4-Stage RO unit. The simplified description omits a few very essential parts like flow control devices, check valves, and an automatic shutoff device that stops the inflow of water when the storage tank is full.)
Premier Reverse Osmosis Systems have a comprehensive contaminant reduction list including Arsenic, Barium, Hexavalent Chromium, Trivalent Chromium, Fluoride, Radium, Selenium, TDS, Nitrate/Nitrite, Perchlorate, Turbidity, Cadmium, Cysts, Copper, Lead, Chlorine, Taste & Odor. Premier has several reverse osmosis and water filtration systems, individual systems have specific contaminant reductions that apply to the model /unit. Please see product specific data sheets that pertain to the list of contaminant reductions for that model /unit.
Premier Reverse Osmosis systems will provide you with great tasting, purified drinking water for your home or business.
