WHY OPT FOR HOME WATER FILTRATION SYSTEMS?

The massive scale & widespread usage of chlorine in treatment plants may result in the build-up of damaging substances called trihalomethanes. These are also known as organochlorines. It’s believed that these can affect your well-being negatively. 

Vulnerable groups like young children, the elderly & people with skin ailments like eczema are at high risk. In addition, some researchers have indicated a connection between the degree of organochlorines from the main supply & to increased occurrence of several cancers, such as those of the digestive system & skin.

Further studies are needed to confirm these impressions, but it is not unreasonable to worry about these harsh substances implicated in preventing fetal development & resulting in miscarriage.

No one will deny the importance of treated clean water in boosting overall health but this does not warrant the unquestioned use of chlorine in the treatment of water. We have to enquire to what extent is this necessary & can its use be curtailed?

Chlorine is a potent disinfectant. But, on the other hand, it rids our own water source of numerous dangerous bacteria. Regardless, it can behave in somewhat more sinister ways.

It reacts with all the tiny particles of organic matter found in warm water & kinds of organochloride compounds. The negative effects of chemical purification can outweigh the advantages.

Whole house water purification methods may eliminate these toxic chemicals before they reach our appliances & faucets. This is vital because the risks don’t lurk simply from the water we use for cooking & drinking. Organochlorides may be inhaled out of steam, absorbed via the skin, or unintentionally consumed while we bathe. A lot of people find improvement in their water quality after using a water filtration system.

By fitting Lone Star Water Service’s filter components into the supply line at which it enters the house, you can be certain each water outlet provides secure, clean water. There are numerous methods out there. For example, a 3-phase filter system comprising ionizers can eliminate toxins, heavy metals, undesirable sediment & soften your gallons of water.

  • People suffering from skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema frequently notice a noticeable improvement in their symptoms as soon as they begin using filtered water. Several studies have demonstrated that it also decreases the accumulation of dental plaque. An excellent home water filtration unit ought to give families multiple reasons to smile.
  • Drinking water & hot drinks will taste much better than normal water. Filtering water also decreases the accumulation of limescale on appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines & kettles. As a result, they’ll work better & last longer. By installing whole-house water filter systems, people can protect their families & enjoy their peace of mind.

GET HEALTHY DRINKING WATER WITH A (RO) SYSTEM

Even though water is essential to our health & wellness, we often take it for granted. We presume that the water in our home is healthy & safe, when the truth is, it might just be reaching the minimum standards.

The federal government has not updated legal limits for contaminants in tap water for almost 20 years, even though we have new data about the importance of good water quality.

WHAT IS A REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO) SYSTEM?

A RO system is a water filtration device connected to your sink, refrigerator, or both to ensure you are getting clean & healthy water & ice. It eliminates contaminants from water that is unfiltered by applying pressure to force it through a semipermeable membrane. 

The fresh, clean water flows through to your plumbing system & the leftover waste, called brine, is sent down the drain to exit your home with the rest of your wastewater.

HOW DOES A (RO) SYSTEM WORK?

The main advantage of a reverse osmosis system is the RO membrane, which filters out even the smallest contaminants. However, RO systems also include prefilters & post-filters to create optimum water quality. Many systems offer either 3, 4, or 5 steps of filtration. Each RO system includes, at minimum, a sediment filter, a carbon filter & the semipermeable membrane. 

The sediment filter eliminates bigger particles like dirt, rust & dust. This is especially important if you own an old water heater that can introduce rust & sediment into your hot water. The carbon filter reduces volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chlorine & other contaminants that give your water a bad taste or odor. The semipermeable membrane filters out just about everything else. 

After your tap water achieves its multi-stage filtration, it moves into a RO storage tank that keeps the water until you require it. The storage tank is crucial because RO systems work a bit slowly. It takes up to approx one minute to create just a few ounces of water. The storage tank ensures that you have extra water ready at all times.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE (RO) SYSTEM?

We have already discussed the main advantage of RO systems – getting safe, clean water into your house. Many of our clients also love reverse osmosis systems because they like the taste of their drinking water.

If you don’t own an RO system, the only other alternative is to exclusively drink bottled water or to utilize cheaper, but much less efficient, water filters like those that are built into pitchers or connected to your sink. Using an RO system is much more suitable for the environment. It’s an investment that can help you save a lot of money in the long run.

RO systems are easy to maintain, can be installed without much interruption to your home & fits discreetly underneath your kitchen sink.

(RO) SYSTEM VS WATER SOFTENER?

It’s very easy to confuse reverse osmosis systems & water softeners, but they are different. Water softeners don’t filter dangerous contaminants from your water. They simply remove calcium & magnesium from your water so that the water is less harsh, or softer, for personal use, washing clothes, & showering. 

Reverse osmosis systems can soften water but they aren’t a perfect treatment method if you have really hard water. If you have hard water above 7 grains, using a RO system will produce more wear & tear on its membrane, which means you will have to periodically replace it.

If you have hard water, it’s really a good idea to have both a water softener & a reverse osmosis system. They work well together to give you safe, healthy drinking water. The water softener can eliminate damaging iron and other contaminants from the water before it gets to the RO system. This ensures you have top-quality drinking water & the ideal water for bathing & washing.
