Reverse Osmosis

Why Install a Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Filter at My Kitchen Sink?

A Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Filter converts bad tasting and smelling tap water and into pure, chemical-free, great tasting filtered water at the kitchen sink for cooking and drinking.  The RO water filtration system removes bacteria and viruses plus chemical contaminants such as chloride, copper, lead and arsenic.  A Point of Use (PoU) RO water filter system installed by a certified Bill Howe plumber will replace the need for buying plastic bottled water and enable home chefs to easily filter tap water for cooking.

What is Reverse Osmosis (RO)?

The Reverse Osmosis process was used as a way to desalinate seawater by moving the water supply in a reverse flow passing through semi-permeable membranes.  With the popularity of filtered bottled drinking water, in-home RO water filters installed at the point of use are a cost-effective and sustainable alternative for great tasting water.  Quality reverse osmosis water filters have a pore size of .0001 microns and, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), is highly effective at removing multiple contaminants from drinking water.  Point of Use RO water filtration systems have a three to five stage water filter that uses a sediment filter, one or more activated carbon filters plus a membrane filter to remove contaminants from the water.  The first stage of this RO water filtration traps sediment, silt and other larger particles from the water. The Reverse Osmosis drinking water filter second stage pressurizes the water pushing it through the RO membrane, which filters out impurities, chemicals, and harmful contaminants found in the contaminated water.  The third stage in the filtration process is one last water filter to ensure filtered water at the sink is fresh, pure, odor free and tastes incredible. 

Reverse Osmosis Water Filter Installation & Maintenance

Reverse Osmosis water filtration systems are small and can fit underneath the sink unit for a dedicated tap water filter for drinking and cooking.  While Point of Use RO water filter systems range in price, they can be economically installed by a professional plumber and homeowners will save money by no longer purchasing bottled water, easily recouping the installation cost quickly.

There is very little maintenance with an under the sink Reverse Osmosis water filtration system.  A professional water treatment specialist will replace the filter each year, test the water and check air pressure to ensure the water filter remains in optimal working order and homeowners can continue to enjoy clean water for drinking and cooking.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
