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 David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

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.
