Safe drinking water is without a doubt a major concern today, not just in the US but all over the world. It seems as though there is a new article popping up every day for boil water advisories, bottled water recalls, or a new concern in city water contaminants.
Water is becoming a more favorable beverage than sodas, due to popular health concerns over the widespread obesity problem.
On top of all this, society is becoming more and more conscious of their carbon footprint. Drinking the recommended daily amount of water out of the plastic bottle is certainly not ideal for bettering the health of our environment.
How are you supposed to feel good about your drinking water while being environmentally conscious and economical?
There are a variety of services that offer filling stations for filtered water or water jug deliveries. These usually take up time and space as well as consistently cost money.
There is an economic solution that accommodates all of these concerns and inconveniences. Take the power into your own hands by filtering your water at home!
A reverse osmosis (RO) drinking water system delivers clean, freshly filtered drinking water right from your sink.
Basic chemistry classes often use the term “osmosis” to define a process in which a higher concentration of water molecules will naturally be drawn to and move into an area that has a less water. People often use this phrase a lot in reference to “learn through osmosis,” to have knowledge just magically come to them through contact.
In the world of water treatment, reverse osmosis is the same principle done backwards. The filtration system uses pressure to force water with contaminants (so less water molecules) through a membrane to come out the side where it is nearly pure water (a higher concentration of H2O molecules).
This semi-permeable membrane is the powerhouse of the system that collects unwanted and concerning contaminants that may be an issue to washing your dishes with, but you would not want in your cup of coffee in the morning. Our UltroWater RO filter is certified to remove things such as:
But the RO membrane is only one part of the process. Our reverse osmosis drinking water systems also include a carbon block pre-filter and post-filter to help collect any sediment particles or absorb any unwanted smells or tastes that might be lingering in your water. This multi-stage filter quickly and efficiently gives you the same quality, if not better water, than you can find in most bottled waters today.
Systems can be discreetly installed under sinks for easy access or in basements to not crowd the storage space available under your counter. The installation is minimally invasive to the home’s construction. A dedicated tap, available in different colors to suit your kitchen’s style, is placed by your sink to dispense the freshly filtered water for use, leaving your regular tap water available to wash vegetables or do dishes without wasting your RO quality water.
It may seem intimidating to get started with an in-home water filtration system, but with the help of an authorized Evolve dealer the installation process can be a breeze. Here are a few other things to consider as a result of having your own RO drinking water filter.
If you don’t like the taste of your water, it can cause a chain reaction in your buying habits. You will constantly be searching for alternatives of what you can drink while at the store. Maybe it’s cases of bottled water, but often times reaching for cases of soda or bottles of sugary fruit drinks are more tempting.
Making coffee, tea, orange juice from concentrate at home also becomes an issue when your tap water tastes or smells bad. This also leads to more spending at the store or going to the local coffee shop to pick up your morning cup to find something you enjoy.
Your body needs water to function properly, and if your water at home tastes good, it makes it a lot easier to keep your body hydrated. You can also save time and money by enjoying better tasting coffee and tea at home.
A couple of dollars here and there to buy bottled water may not seem like a big deal, but for the cost of having an RO installed, you would actually get the same amount of water for pennies!
Plus, even if we do the right thing and put our plastic bottles into a recycling bin, the sad reality is that only about 8% of those items actually get reused. With a reverse osmosis drinking water filter in your home, not only could you save money by not having to buy bottled water any more you would also reduce the waste left behind. You would also be reducing your carbon footprint when you think about the all the petroleum that goes toward the manufacturing facilities that have to make all of those bottles and the freight companies driving around heavy loads of bottled water deliveries.
Unfortunately, there are very few standards in which bottled water companies need to abide by when creating and labeling their products. Some of the best, most enticing packages are filling their bottles with tap water for their local cities or their “natural spring water” is so natural that it’s never even been filtered.
There are even certain brands of bottled water that have had to issue recalls of their product because it had been contaminated with bacteria.
With our ClearFlo RO or certified UltroWater RO, you can relax with the knowledge that your water has been filtered properly every time. The certifications on the UltroWater model mean that it has been tested by an unbiased third-party organization to prove it is able to remove the contaminants it claims to, like lead or nitrates.
The Evolve product line offers the perfect solution for your drinking water concerns. The UltroWater® or the ClearFlo® are the perfect options for your peace of mind. There is no need to worry about contaminants in your water when you have a reverse osmosis drinking water system installed in the home.
