Osmosis Water System Functionality

What is a Reverse Osmosis Water System?

How Does a Reverse Osmosis Water System Work?

Reverse Osmosis systems use pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane that filters, contaminates, and flushes them out, leaving you with a clear, clean, tasty glass of high-quality water. This membrane is capable of filtering out most contaminants. Much of Oklahoma City’s water comes from surface sources like Lake Atoka and Lake Hefner, so our water is more likely to contain agricultural runoff and pollutants. Our filtration system can filter up to 97% of those dissolved contaminants and give you and your family peace of mind. Have questions about other reverse osmosis water benefits there are?

Signs You Need Reverse Osmosis Filtration

When it comes to determining if a Reverse Osmosis water filtration system is suitable for your household, there are a couple of warning signs to look out for:

  • High levels of lead: Lead is rarely found naturally in water and is typically due to old lead pipes. Drinking water with high lead levels is not healthy over the long haul and should be avoided.
  • High levels of Chromium 6: Chromium 6 is a more recent contaminant found in some drinking water. Suspected to be a carcinogen, Chromium 6 should not be ingested by anyone if possible. If you’re worried about Chromium 6 in your water, have us test it. If levels are low, you have peace of mind. If not, it may be time to invest in a Reverse Osmosis system.
  • Water smells like Chlorine: Water treatment systems often use Chlorine to clean their water, but it can be overpowering. We can fix that right up!
  • Water tastes salty: Salty water is a sign of high sulfate concentrations.
  • Water tastes bitter: This is a sign your water’s pH balance is incorrect.
  • High levels of Arsenic: Arsenic can be naturally occurring or a result of agricultural products. At high levels, it can affect your health.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs or aren’t sure what’s in your water, call us today so we can test it and provide you peace of mind!
