Reverse Osmosis Systems
One of the most essential components of health is the quality of the water we drink.
In Ottawa, we can generally count on clean drinking water that won’t make us sick. But there are chemicals added to it that either taste bad (like chlorine) or may have negative health effects (like fluoride).
If you’re looking for the healthiest possible water for your family, one of the options many of our customers choose is a reverse osmosis system (RO).
A reverse osmosis system is a type of water filter that doesn’t need chemicals to filter impurities from your water.
How Reverse Osmosis Systems Work
RO uses a simple membrane that only allows tiny water molecules through. Larger molecules like chlorine, iron, and fluoride can’t pass – and neither can bacteria or viruses.
Reverse osmosis filters don’t use any electricity – the natural water pressure that happens when you turn on the tap makes it work.
This ensures that the only thing left in your drinking water is clean, pure water.
Optionally, you can choose to have beneficial minerals, like calcium, added back in. Calcium is essential for healthy bones, regulating blood flow, and easing muscle tension.
