Whole House Reverse Osmosis: 4 Reasons to Avail it
There are several reasons why you might consider opting for a whole house reverse osmosis (RO) system. Here are four potential benefits of choosing this type of water filtration system:
- Comprehensive Water Filtration: Whole house reverse osmosis systems offer extensive filtration capabilities, removing a wide range of contaminants from your water. RO systems use a semipermeable membrane to eliminate impurities such as heavy metals, chlorine, sediment, pesticides, herbicides, and dissolved solids. By installing a whole house RO system, you can ensure that all the water coming into your home is purified, providing clean and safe water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and other household uses. Chicago Water Pros provides this service in Lake Forest, Long Grove, Port Barrington, North Barrington, Lake Barrington, Frankfort, IL.
- Improved Water Taste and Odor: Reverse osmosis filtration significantly enhances the taste and odor of water. The system eliminates unpleasant smells and flavors caused by chlorine, sulfur, or other impurities. By removing these contaminants, whole house RO systems can provide you with refreshing and better-tasting water throughout your entire home.
- Protection for Appliances and Plumbing: Whole house reverse osmosis systems can help safeguard your appliances and plumbing fixtures from the harmful effects of contaminants. Minerals and impurities present in water can cause scaling, corrosion, and buildup, which can lead to reduced efficiency and shortened lifespan of appliances such as water heaters, dishwashers, and washing machines. With an RO system, you can prevent these issues by ensuring that only purified water flows through your plumbing system and reaches your appliances.
- Convenience and Cost Savings: While point-of-use RO systems are commonly used for drinking water, having a whole house RO system eliminates the need for additional filtration units at each faucet. With a centralized system, you’ll have access to clean and purified water throughout your home without the hassle of maintaining multiple filters or purchasing bottled water. Over time, this can lead to significant cost savings compared to alternative filtration methods.
It’s important to note that whole house reverse osmosis systems require professional installation and regular maintenance, including membrane replacement. Additionally, RO filtration can result in some water wastage during the purification process, so it’s worth considering the environmental implications as well. Please call us without any delay.
