Safe, clean, pure water is something that every homeowner wants easy access to in their own home. Although the water that comes out of your faucets may be “safe,” that doesn’t mean it is pure or as clean as you might want. Arizona is known for having notoriously hard water. This simply means that there is a high concentration of minerals in the water and, without effective filtration, that hard water can lead to a lot of problems. Hard water leaves mineral deposits on anything it touches which means it will leave your skin feeling dry, leave deposits on your laundry that makes things look faded, leaves water spots on your dishes, and builds up on plumbing hardware and fixtures which deteriorates finishes and causes damage to your plumbing over time. Fortunately, by installing a reverse osmosis system, you can clean and purify the water that your home uses and avoid many of these issues.
There are a variety of reverse osmosis systems from which to choose but, generally speaking, they are very effective at removing minerals and contaminants like sodium, sulfate, calcium, mercury, lead, arsenic, fluoride, chloride, and more. And, RO water systems are more effective than other water filtration systems at removing contaminants, as Forbes notes, “Unlike other forms of water filtration, reverse osmosis is considered one of the most all-around effective ways of eliminating water contaminants. Even residential-grade reverse osmosis filters can remove up to 99% of lead, asbestos and 82 other additional contaminants.”
Reverse osmosis systems are an effective and efficient way to improve your home’s water quality. With pure and clean water thanks to reverse osmosis, you do the environment a favor and add convenience to your life by eliminating the need to constantly buy costly bottled water. RO systems are not cumbersome and are typically discreetly installed under your sink. It is important to discuss your water purification needs with a knowledgeable plumber that is experienced in reverse osmosis system installation. An experienced plumbing tech will guide you toward the best system to meet your needs and correctly install your new system so you can begin enjoying optimal water quality at home right away!
