Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but not everyone knows if they’re drinking clean water. Reverse osmosis systems provide clean, refreshing water in your home. If you are tired of spending money on bottled water or worrying about the safety of your drinking water, a reverse osmosis system is right for you. Here are five benefits to drinking water from a reverse osmosis system.

No More Drinking Contaminants

Lately, there have been findings of many contaminants in drinking water, such as PFAS, iron, and mercury. Some of these contaminants can be extremely harmful to your health if you continue to consume them. These are the most common harmful contaminants found in Southwest Florida:

  • Arsenic
  • Cyanide
  • Chlorine
  • Barium
  • Radium

Cities all over the United States have reported issues concerning another dangerous contaminant in their water, lead. While some water filters have claimed to remove lead, only reverse osmosis systems produce results with little to no trace of lead. High levels of lead can be harmful to the body and a significant concern for families. Studies have found that lead can lead to nerve and muscle damage, high blood pressure and, in worse cases, brain damage.  If you are worried about you or your family ingesting dangerous contaminants, a reverse osmosis system is something to take into serious consideration.

Removes Sodium

Sodium can create high blood pressure, liver problems, and kidney diseases when consumed at high levels. About 95 percent of the sodium molecules are unable to pass through the membranes of the reverse osmosis filtering system, making the water safer for anyone with sodium restrictions.

Tastes Better

After the reverse osmosis system filters the contaminants, the water is sent through three carbon filters, the last filter is a “polishing” filter to make sure any persistent tastes or odors are removed. When the impurities are removed, you are left with nothing but clean and fresh water that will taste better! If you want the same fresh taste of bottled water, a reverse osmosis system will work for you!

Cost and Maintenance Efficient

Do you prefer the taste of bottled water to tap water but don’t like to continually spend money on bottles? According to the International Bottled Water Association, Americans spend $100 per year per person on bottled water. Reverse osmosis filtered water has a similar taste to bottled water even though it comes from a faucet. The maintenance for the reverse osmosis system is easy to manage, having to change a filter only about every six months or so.

Environmental Friendly 

Since reverse osmosis water has been compared to the same pure and fresh taste as bottled water, there will be no need to keep purchasing plastic water bottles. Stop contributing to plastic pollution by getting rid of the need for plastic bottles. 

Reverse osmosis water is one of the few drinking sources that contains a miniscule amount of  minerals and impurities. If you are interested in learning more about the reverse osmosis method, contact Kinetico SWFL today at 239-908-2300!
