Is your well water is undrinkable because it is contaminated with toxic materials such as arsenic, salt, bacteria or heavy metals? Reverse Osmosis is a way to get your drinking water back.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) removes contaminants by forcing water molecules under pressure through a special semipermeable filter membrane. The membrane allows water to flow through but blocks out larger molecules, like contaminants, sediment and microorganisms. The clean drinking water collects in a holding tank. Contaminants are flushed down the drain.

An under-the-sink reverse osmosis drinking water system connects to the plumbing under your kitchen sink.
What to consider
There are a number of things to consider if you are thinking about getting a reverse osmosis system.
Plumbing and Space under the sink.
A reverse osmosis system uses multiple filters and has a large storage tank so it takes up a lot of space. It can be challenge to fit your system if your under-sink space is tight or if you have a garbage disposal.
An RO system dispenses water quickly. But it refills the storage tank at the relatively slow rate. How much water do you need to use per day? You may want to consider a high output system, or a tankless system if you expect daily water usage to be higher.
Number of Filtering Stages
In addition to the reverse osmosis membrane filter itself, the best RO systems have a series of pre- and post-filters, called stages. The number of filter stages of an RO system affects the filtration quality. Some RO system have a remineralization stage to restore healthy minerals and to produce a more natural taste.
Of course you want to purchase your RO system from a reliable vendor who stands behind their work. That’s why, at Pure Water, all of our Residential and Whole House Reverse Osmosis Systems are are GUARANTEED TO PERFORM AS REPRESENTED OR YOUR MONEY BACK.
