Who needs to think about buying a reverse osmosis system?

Systems of a reverse osmosis today actively advance in the market of systems of a filtration by ways of rather aggressive marketing. However installation of such devices, despite arguments of advertising, is necessary not for all. The water used by the end user, should correspond to a number of norms and standards. Norms in turn are defined on the basis of the conducted scientific researches revealing influence of the substances dissolved in water on a health condition, duration and quality of life of the person. Of course, many things in this area are still unexplored, but there are simply no other facts that can be operated on when norms are approved, or they are not valid.

Thus, scientific research proves that negative effects on human health and life expectancy can have:

  • different pathogenic bacteria;
  • salts of heavy metals;
  • other salts, but provided that their concentration exceeds the permissible content threshold;
  • insoluble solids;
  • chlorine.

Other facts and theories actively replicated by filter manufacturers and sellers have not been scientifically confirmed. For example, often sellers may argue that the content of certain salts and minerals in the water is acceptable and even useful, which may also have a positive effect on human health structure of water molecules and so on. All this may be interesting, but again, not from a scientific perspective.

Reverse osmosis systems are designed to remove above mentioned risk factors from water. The membranes of the device are guaranteed to retain pathogenic bacteria, various impurities, small particles, reduce the concentration of heavy metal salts and others. However, all this will be possible under one important condition – the listed components must be contained in filtered water. According to strange principles, some manufacturers of filtration agents operate – they first inflate the problem in the media, and then offer frightened users to get rid of it, using the miracle filters. 

The water supplied by public utilities through the city’s water supply system reaches the end user in a prepared form. The quality of water is determined by sanitary standards. Besides the fact that water is purified from various harmful substances, it is still undergoing a mandatory deodorization process by adding chlorine to the water. 

A specific person (official) is responsible for each stage of the water treatment. He or she is fully responsible (up to and including criminal responsibility) for the quality and safety of the liquid flowing from your tap. The water quality is monitored externally by the sanitary and epidemiological services. It is up to you to decide how rotten the control systems are in your home town and whether you should trust the quality of tap water or whether it is better to install a reverse osmosis system in your apartment. Taking into account the above mentioned factors and risks, you can safely say that the installation of water treatment design based on the principle of reverse osmosis is justified almost everywhere. If you want to install a filter, contact the company High Water Standard.

A slightly different situation looks when you use artesian water (deep wells). The composition and quality of such water is constantly maintained at a certain level, as opposed to water from the upper aquifers. But even in this case there is a risk of getting polluted water. If in a neighboring area decide to drill the same deep well and, accordingly, begin to use water from the same aquifer as you, but do not puzzle over the proper isolation of the upper aquifers, as a result, the water will not differ from the well with all the ensuing consequences.
