RO Drinking Water System

5 Stage RO Drinking Water System Explained

If you've done any amount of shopping for filtration systems, such as a reverse osmosis membrane filters, at all, no doubt you've seen the term "reverse osmosis" thrown around quite a bit. If you're like most people, however, you are uncertain exactly what reverse osmosis means and how this process works within, say, a 5 stage RO system. A brief explanation my help clarify this process and why it is so effective for clarifying household waters.

Reverse osmosis is the process by which a liquid is pushed through a membrane, or filter, in order to force the pure liquid to the other side of the filter. In an RO drinking water system, for example, the membrane then catches the contaminants as they pass through, preventing them from passing to the other side along with the clean liquid. The membrane filters are specially designed to withstand the high pressure of the filtering process to separate the good from the bad quickly and efficiently, providing optimal clarifying power. FilterDirect carries this and other filtering systems to suit any home or business use.

High Pressure Water Booster Pump

Filter Direct's water booster pump assembly #752 is used to increase the input pressure to the RO water system. If the tap water pressure is below 40 psi, the RO system will not be able to produce water, so a booster pump is needed to increase the water pressure going into the RO system. Ideal input pressure for the RO system is 70 psi. For example, if the tap water pressure is about 30 psi, using the water booster pump, the input pressure can be boost to 60-70 psi to maintain optimal water pressure for the RO system.  The pump assembly comes complete with pump, transformer, solenoid valve, and pressure switch. Call us today to see which solution is right for you.
