Reverse Osmosis Water System

If you're looking for a good quality water purification system for your home, a reverse osmosis water system is probably not the right choice for you. Although many public utilities use reverse osmosis water systems, you would be very surprised to learn what is in that clear tap water of yours!
The list of chemicals and other compounds found in tap water processed by public utilities is long and dangerous. Chlorine, lead, hormones, medications, herbicides, pesticides, acanthamoeba, bacteria and other single celled organisms that can cause serious illnesses, are just a few of the things you may find in your water, even after it has been processed by your local utility company.
A reverse osmosis water system was not designed to remove these types of contaminants. Most of these microscopic contaminants are smaller than a molecule of water. Reverse osmosis water systems were designed to let water pass through, while removing large particulates of contaminants. Yet common sense tells you, if the contaminant molecules are smaller than water, and water can pass through, so can all the other nasty stuff.

Reverse osmosis water systems simply were not designed to tackle the chemical contamination that we now have in our tap water. People traveling to third world countries or living in rural areas use mobile reverse osmosis units successfully. They work best when cleaning river water or well water. However, even in these instances, boiling the water is recommended prior to drinking.
Companies that sell reverse osmosis water systems for home use are not giving you the whole story. They generally fail to mention why most systems are sold along with an additional filtering system. Which begs the question, if you need to use a filtering system even after processing your water through a reverse osmosis water system, then why not use a filtering system altogether?
