Reverse Osmosis and Alkaline Water

Reverse Osmosis

Alkaline Water

What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis (R/O) is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from the water. Traditional filtration only takes out particles of a certain size, which are suspended in a liquid by using a screen or porous filter material. Reverse Osmosis removes contaminants which are dissolved in the water.

How Does it Work?
R/O uses a semipermeable membrane to separate dissolved contaminants from the water molecules. As raw water passes across the surface area of the membrane, the pure water slowly squeezes through the layers of the semi-permeable membrane. The pure water is then collected in the storage tank. The contaminants left behind flow out through the drain line. Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filtration Systems are installed under a standard kitchen sink to easily dispense pure drinking water simply by opening a faucet. With a R/O System, your water will look clear and taste crisp.

What are the Benefits?
Benefits – Superior quality and performance, removes full spectrum of contaminants.
Convenient – Fresh water produced automatically an available at your fingertips.
Economical – High quality water produced in your home for just pennies a gallon.
Dependable – Systems produce high quality water and are reliable.

What pollutants are removed in the water?
Chlorine, bleach, herbicides, chloramine, chloroform, diesel fuel, odours, PCBs pesticides, phenols and THM’s. Benzene, gasoline, acetone, alcohol, antifreeze, chlorobenzene, cresol, defoliants, dyes, solvents and turpentine. Asbestos, barium, cadmium, copper (II), lead, mercury, silver, aluminum, and selenium (IV). Sodium sulfate, sulfate, manganese, sodium, nitrate, sodium chloride and arsenic.

What is Alkaline Water?
Alkaline water is water that’s less acidic than regular tap water. This means it is rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, potassium and magnesium. Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, alkaline water can neutralize the acid in your body. Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8-10.

How does Alkaline Water work?
Reverse Osmosis water passes through an Alkaline structural media tank and absorbs the minerals in it. The Alkaline filter simply gives back minerals such as ionized calcium, magnesium and potassium ion, which were taken away while purifying the water. Then the water goes to an inline post carbon filter to give a natural and refreshing taste. Alkaline water filtration systems are installed under a standard kitchen sink to easily dispense pure drinking water simply by opening a faucet. With an Alkaline water filtration system, your water will produce perfectly pH-balanced alkaline water, making the water cleaner and healthier.

What are the health benefits?
-Weight loss
-Cancer resistance
-Blood pressure and diabetes
-Colon-cleansing properties
-Immune system support
-Hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
-Bone health and Osteoporosis: Less bone resorption and more mineral density result in better bone strength.
-Acid Reflux: It’s found that alkaline water stops an enzyme that is connected to reflux disease. It also appeared to reduce the acidity of the stomach contents.

Acid wastes (from the lifestyles we lead – not only from food and drink, but also from stress and other pollutants) are dumped into the bloodstream and lymph, and then are transported to the liver and kidneys for the detoxification processing and elimination. Keep in mind that a pH of 8 and above is the only range that is beneficial to your good health: An alkaline body is when your body is in a healthy state therefore allowing your body to fight bacterial and infectious diseases as well as many other critical diseases. Combining Reverse Osmosis water with Alkaline minerals can actually remove 99.99% of contaminants and provide people with healthy alkaline drinking water.
