Reverse Osmosis System

Culligan Reverse Osmosis systems eliminate contaminants other filters miss.

reverse osmosis systemReverse osmosis (RO) is a technologically advanced and innovative filtration process that reduces contaminants like arsenic, sodium, chloride, fluoride and radium, as well as harmful microorganisms in water. The process involves forcing the water through a very fine, semi-permeable membrane which only allows the water to pass through and catches all the impurities.

For certain difficult waters, like well water, reverse osmosis can be the most effective way to deliver clean, safe water to your home.

Benefits of Reverse Osmosis Systems

A reverse osmosis system:

  • Ensures the removal of dissolved organic and inorganic compounds in water.
  • Removes common contaminants like sodium, chloride, fluoride and nitrates.
  • Eliminates foul smells and tastes that are caused by chlorine and sulfur.
  • Reduces the level of pesticides and other chemicals that are harmful to your health.
  • Provides cleaner, better tasting water that does not cause scale buildup in plumbing and appliances or stains in bathtubs, sinks and dishes.

How Reverse Osmosis Works

Reverse osmosis is the process of pushing water through a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities and harmful contaminants. A reverse osmosis system does this in a few stages. First, pressurized water goes through the a particle filter to remove impurities like salt, sand and sediment. The water then passes through an activated carbon filter that traps and removes minerals and contaminants such as chlorine, mercury, copper and pesticides. The pressurized water is then forced through the membrane’s tiny holes where the smallest impurities are trapped and only clean water passes through. The contaminants that were removed are flushed away and the treated water is sent to a storage tank to undergo a final activated-carbon filtration to improve taste quality before it’s ready for household use.
