As some of the fluid passes through the membrane the rest continues downstream, sweeping the rejected contaminants away from the membrane and down the drain. The process of reverse osmosis requires a driving force to push the fluid through the membrane (the pressure provided by a standard residential water system is sufficient - 40 psi+). Since membranes are subject to degrading by chlorine, iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide, and to bacterial attack, a sediment pre-filter and an activated carbon pre-filter and/or post-filter is included with your reverse osmosis system. RO systems are generally the best choice for water contaminated with high nitrite levels as might be found in agricultural areas. This is a quality 6 Stage Alkaline Reverse Osmosis system that offers the convenience of a Clear Housing to tell at a glance if you need to change your filters.
This is an excellent value for a core system, that includes and extra set o f filters. This unit contains the following. 1 SEDIMENT FILTER 1 GRANULAR CARBON FILTER. 1 INLINE POST CARBON FILTER 1 INLINE ALKALINE FILTER CLEAR HOUSING.3 CLEAR FILTER HOUSING1 MOUNTING BRACKET. 1 AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF VALVE. 1 FEED WATER SADDLE VALVE. 1 CHECK VALVE ON MEMBRANE HOUSING.
1st Stage - All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges. These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications. 2nd Stage - Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man.One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. Stage - With carbon block filters, water is forced through the pores of the densely compacted carbon block, where a combination of mechanical filtration, electrokinetic adsorption, and physical/ chemical adsorption take place to reduce a wide range of contaminants.
Solid Carbon Block technology can reduce chlorine, taste and odor problems, particulate matter, and a wide range of contaminants of health concern -- cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), VOCs (pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals), certain endocrine disrupters, Trihalomethanes (cancer-causing disinfection by-products), heavy metals (lead, mercury), turbidity, MTBE, Chloramines and asbestos. Solid carbon block filters do not remove healthful, naturally-occurring minerals.

Inline Alkaline Calcite/Corosec filter : Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate media. One of the advantages of Calcite is its self-limiting property. When properly applied, it corrects pH only enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium.
It does not overcorrect under normal conditions. Reverse Osmosis product water is acidic due to it's purity. To buffer the water back to a more natural balance, we highly recommend this filter for drinking water. The composition of this food grade media will also add minerals to the water that is stripped out by the reverse osmosis membrane. Post Carbon Filter - A final Polishing step that ensues a sparkling clean and pure water taste.Please ensure that it is correct. This system is meant to replace an existing system when you already have a tank and a faucet. You can also use this system to fill a reservoir using a float switch, if that is your aim, let us know, and we will eliminate the tank line. Personal checks may be held until cleared.
