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 Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
