Advisable Method of Revitalising Your Reverse Osmosis Water System

June 6, 2023

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a modern way to filter water that is becoming increasingly popular today. It can filter water down to 0.0001 microns, which means it can eliminate almost all of the impurities in your drinking water. It filters the water so that only water molecules and no other things are in it.If you want to clean your water well, consider getting a reverse osmosis water filter, especially if you live in an area with bad water.

How the Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System Works

Reverse osmosis water systems use "reverse osmosis" to filter water well. Reverse osmosis is the opposite of normal osmosis, as the name suggests. In osmosis, a solvent moves from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration as it passes through a permeable membrane. In reverse osmosis, hydrostatic pressure pushes the solvent molecules from a low-concentration region to a high-concentration region.

When the solvent (contaminated water) goes through the RO membrane, the membrane separates it into water molecules and other molecules. The other molecules are bigger than the 0.0001-micron-sized holes in the RO membrane, so they can't get through. Bacteria and other things in your tap water are also molecules. But it also has things that are good for you, like salts and minerals. That's why the minerals in tap water aren't in the water that comes out of RO systems.

How Can Reverse Osmosis Water Be Revitalised?

Even though RO water doesn't have the right microelements, that doesn't mean we shouldn't drink it. RO filtration removes bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals from tap water. You won't have a problem if you eat a well-balanced diet and drink enough electrolytes after you work out. But if you can't get these micronutrients from a healthy diet and electrolytes, you might want to think about other ways to remineralise your RO drinking water.

Getting a reverse osmosis water system with a remineralisation filter is the easiest way to get the benefits of mineralised water without giving up good RO filtration. Unlike regular RO water filters, which have three stages of filtration, these models have an extra post-activated carbon filter or a remineralisation filter that adds minerals back into the water and keeps the pH level stable.

An under-sink reverse osmosis system uses a strong 3-stage filtration process and a scale inhibitor to ensure no water scale builds up in the water. The remineralisation filter can put back into your drinking water 18 different natural materials. Chronic diseases can be avoided, and digestion and immunity can be improved by drinking much of this filtered water.

Other Advisable Method Of Revitalising Your Reverse Osmosis Water System

Over time, the RO membrane can become fouled with impurities, leading to a decline in water quality and reduced system efficiency. Here are the steps you can take to revitalise your reverse osmosis water system:

• Turn off the water supply to the RO system and disconnect the inlet water line from the pre-filter housing.

• Remove the pre-filter, post-filter, and RO membrane from the system and discard them.

• Sanitise the RO system by adding a cleaning solution to the system. You can use a commercially available RO membrane cleaning solution or make your own by mixing one gallon of water with one cup of household bleach.

• Let the cleaning solution sit in the RO system for at least one hour to dissolve accumulated debris and bacteria.

• Flush the RO system with clean water to remove any remaining cleaning solution and debris.

• Install new pre-filter, post-filter, and RO membrane.

• Turn the water supply back on and run the RO system for at least an hour to flush out any remaining contaminants and ensure the system operates properly.

• Test the water quality to ensure the system produces water that meets your desired standards.

It is recommended to perform this cleaning and sanitisation process at least once a year or more frequently if you notice a decline in water quality or system efficiency.

By revitalising your reverse osmosis water system, you can ensure that you produce high-quality drinking water that is safe and healthy for you and your family.
