What Is Reverse Osmosis?

Reverse Osmosis water is produced by using pressure to force water through a series of artificial, semi-permeable membranes to remove impurities, including salt, larger particles and contaminants, resulting in clean, potable water.

So, what’s the problem? That all sounds good, right?

Not really, because of the next key takeaway with RO water:

Water Quality Testing: Does Your State Need It?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 11, 2019 4:25 pm

Water quality is more important today than ever before – especially since the days of turning on the tap and trusting (without question) what comes out of it are gone. Even if you’re lucky enough to live somewhere that hasn’t hit the headlines over water contamination, your water might still contain unwelcome elements that can’t be seen, smelled, or tasted.

Why Reverse Osmosis Is NOT the Answer to Chromium-6

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 6, 2018 7:00 am

The cancer-causing contaminant Chromium-6, brought to the public gaze by Erin Brockovich, is at levels exceeding public health goals in 50 states.

Chromium-6 – Here to Stay?

Millions of people are trying to find a workable solution to protect themselves and their families and to avoid drinking contaminated water.  

What Reverse Osmosis Water Does to the Pipeline

A reverse osmosis water system is sometimes touted as a possible solution on both a domestic and municipal level.  After all, it removes contaminants and that’s the goal, right?

Unfortunately, reverse osmosis is not a solution on either front.  On a city-wide basis, aside from the prohibitive cost of building the plant, the stripped-back water – though admittedly free of contaminants –

Crisis in Texas – Is Reverse Osmosis Water as Good as a Water Ionizer?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On October 3, 2017 7:00 am

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and it’s wonderful to see the heroic relief efforts of individuals and the large-scale aid that has been arriving since the Tropical storm hit.  

Crisis is often followed by kindness.
Helping Those in Need

Among the companies delivering assistance – in this case 1 million bottles of water – is Nestlé, in an act of charity that will help to repair its image after recent negative publicity.  

Big Companies With Big Hearts

There was also a big-hearted offer from Blackwater Draw Brewing Company, promising that affected residents could collect as much water as they needed.  But this isn’t regular water – it’s reverse osmosis water, used in the brewing

Is a Water Ionizer Much Better than a Reverse Osmosis Unit?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 25, 2017 7:00 am

 
Reverse osmosis water units are important in survival situations or in war zones where the usual water infrastructure has broken down, for example.  The idea is that dirty water is pumped through a semi-permeable membrane, which removes salt, some bacteria and other contaminants.

Reverse Osmosis = dead water.
Want the Good News First? 

The good news?  It works.  Nearly everything is removed from the water.  The bad news?  That includes the good stuff — the elements we need our drinking water to contain.

That’s not a problem in the very short term.  However, drinking reverse osmosis water as our main source of hydration carries a real risk of denying our bodies the essential minerals we need to thrive.
