Tap water and underground water sources in the United States have been compromised from heavy industrial and environmental pollution. All of our water sources have become contaminated to some degree, creating an increased need for water treatment such as a reverse osmosis machine. There has become an increased need for commercial reverse osmosis systems and industrial reverse osmosis systems. Reverse osmosis machines are generally used for food and beverage, mining and hydrometallurgy, healthcare, desalination, and agriculture, to name a few.
Tap water can contain a wide range of contaminants, including traces of prescription drugs. The Associated Press recently conducted an investigation which proved the existence of an extensive variety of pharmaceuticals in city water such as anti-convulsants, antibiotics, hormones and mood stabilizers. Residues of these pharmaceuticals have been found in municipal water supplies all over the country. This is why it is important to protect your family by installing a reverse osmosis machine in your residence. This is also why it is important for any water application to use some type of reverse osmosis machine.
Bottled water can be a viable solution to safe drinking water, but it has its own downsides. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDS) conducted a four-year study which found that somewhere between 25% and 40% of all bottled water is actually bottled tap water. Most bottled water is of high quality, but some tested with high levels of contamination including organic chemicals, bacteria, and arsenic.
A high quality reverse osmosis machine is the best and possibly the only solution these days. They are very easy to install and it is a simple process to maintain the filters. It is an easy solution that will provide you and your family with safe drinking water. Not only is it important to select a high quality reverse osmosis machine, but it is important to take a water quality test to determine what types of media is needed. Usually, a 4- to 5-stage reverse osmosis machine is the best choice in order to remove all contaminants in the water. Each stage removes a certain type of contaminants, and together all the stages should remove just about every contaminant in the feed water.
