The earth is comprised of ⅔ water, making it one of the most plentiful and most important materials available. As the water falls to the earth in the form of rain, snow, etc., it begins to pick up impurities (dust, micro-organisms, gases, etc.). For this reason, water filtration is one of the most important industries in the modern-day world.

With the quality of our drinking water increasingly coming under question, people are now looking for alternative sources of quality water. Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems provide the most convenient and economical solution. Comparable systems usually waste 4 to 12 gallons for every gallon of RO water produced. The highly efficient reverse osmosis system wastes virtually no water, with over 99.9% recovery.
The unique two tank system keeps the two media beds separate, allowing for more carbon contact which greatly improves the removal of chlorine, chloramines, and organics. Because the carbon typically needs to be replaced before the softening resin, the two tank system allows for easy cost-effective replacement. You get the same benefit as a separate water softener and whole-house carbon filter for a much lower price as the single control valve operates both systems.
Hard water (calcium & magnesium) is a common problem for many homeowners and businesses. When hardness minerals are combined with heat it forms a troublesome scale. Scale causes costly build-up in your plumbing, water heater, and other water-using appliances. When combined with soap, the minerals form soap curd or scum that makes skin dry and itchy, hair lifeless, laundry dull, and builds upon fixtures.
